Gold slaps down Chelsea fan’s Twitter jibe

West-Ham-United-co-owner-David-GoldDavid Gold has given very short shrift to a Chelsea fan trying to give him a hard time over the Olympic Stadium.

After seeing his team cheat their way to a draw against the Irons yesterday a Twitter follower tried his best at baiting the Irons co chairman by dredging up a subject which has been aired relentlessly and maybe to beyond even boredom.

Enjoying a small moment of spotlight from OS envious fans via 69 Twitter ‘likes’ 

The question of course – which has been answered a million times – should have been posed to those responsible for agreeing the deal with West Ham –  the London Legacy Development Corporation who are ultimately responsible for what does and doesn’t happen at the stadium..

Gold, however, chose to respond saying: “The tax payer is not subsidising the OS the tax payer is investing in a vibrant, profit & job generating project. dg”

  1. “The tax payer is not subsidising the OS the tax payer is investing in a vibrant, profit & job generating project. dg”
    well said DG.
    That should be made clear over and over again until all these idiots fall asleep.

  2. Chelski t##t who didn’t bother to check his facts out before opening his mouth/tweeting. Fails to remember that the stadium can be used by anyone who wants to rent it during the summer. Rugby, athlectics, school events, motor sport, concerts & many more. But the cost only relates to west ham being able to use it.

  3. The Hammers only have use of the Stadium for 25 days a year, 340 days we have no say in what happens, hardly being subsidised by Londoners is it, we are paying a good rate for our 25 days a year.
    WE DON’T OWN IT !!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Because we’re smarter than you?

  5. When we look at the big percentages of Catering profits and naming rights that we have to pay, it’s not just the 2 million fixed rent to be payed. It becomes more like up to 10 million per year.
    That is not made clear to the public for whatever reason.

  6. Don’t bother with this crap , I’m more concerned about the gossip media about that donkey Henderson ( the new Gerrard ? Lol.) That we are interested in the **** . It seems we are the preferred dumping ground for the scouse rejects ! Charlton is more his destination , on the bench . England ? Don’t make me laugh !!!

  7. Henderson is another Donkey we don’t need we better youngsters then him only Woy likes him,Klopp will get shot of him because he has no class and Noble is twice the player he is
    Can’t believe we are being connected to him or any other Liverpoor reject,
    We don’t need any of there reject Forwards either
