Gold tips kids for Euro bid

BurkeDavid Gold has made it clear the club are still working relentlssly hard to bring in new signings adding confidently: “There is still a long way to go before the transfer window closes.”

The co-chairman speaking to the official site made it clear that David Sullivan is now is desperately keen to get players into the club and adds: “There is nobody better than him at getting the best possible deals.”

And reacting to the Europa League draw he added this gives a great opportunity to give the club’s takented youngsters an early chance.

JoshCullent_WestHamHe said:  “We have a Club now that can win things and the Europa League is a competition that we can do very well in. We have won the right to dream now.

“You want to avoid the bigger teams in the early stages and this is a great opportunity if we want to give our talented group of youngsters the experience of playing on the European stage.

“We have learned from the experiences of last year and all the players are better off twelve months on.

“We have a number of talented youngsters like Reece Oxford, Reece Burke (pictured) , Martin Samuelsen, Josh Cullen (pictured below Burke), Sam Byram, Toni Martinez who are knocking on the first-team door. I have no doubts that these youngsters could be playing in the first-team this year.”

  1. I wouldn’t take our Europa opponents (whichever) too likely.
    History has a bad habit of it repeating itself!

  2. Play the kids in Europe on mass like last year and we are out . No lessons learned there then
    There’s no lackeys as such in the world no more ? Ask Celtic Ffs .
    Lessons learned is a phrase used by brain dead politicians who constantly make mistakes,
    Kids got stuffed last night 2_0 by Chelmsford ?? Strong one squad which included the bard and fletcher , to name a couple .
    Ffs get a life .
    Listening to sully is like listening to David Coleman god rest his sole?

  3. Why bother trying to finish in the top flight if we are not going to take the European Cup ties seriously,
    We should play our top team and unless we have the tie won like 3-0 up by half time,then you can bring on the youngsters or if you are 5-0 up after the first leg,
    I have no problem playing any of the lads as long as they are in the team because they are the best player,
    We already have a big enough squad without them to put out 2 teams,
    This cup needs to be taken seriously,we already have trouble
    Attracting top players to the club and most of them and us want silverware in the trophy cupboard

  4. Hear hear bubs !!!
    Its the only way to win things , big squad , good players , no kids except when its safe to bring on and a slice of luck !
    Sorted .
