Gold: “We were poor …but now we are dreaming”


wembley-sky-shotDavid Gold makes absolutely no bones about the fact that West Ham were “poor” at Bristol City but declared: “We are beginning to dream!”

The co-chairman was disappointed in the overall performance but told ClaretandHugh: “All that matters now is the draw and we would have to be disappointed if we get any of the Premier League clubs that remain.

“Hopefully the law of averages will give us a home tie as well!

“We were poor against Bristol City but it was never going to be easy and fair play to them for the way they played but in the end we produced the one moment of real quality.

“Ask me who I want in the next round and the answer would have to be: ‘the lowest League team left at Upton Park’ but even then we can’t take anything for granted.

“This year has provided some massive shocks and who’s to say there aren’t some banana skins left? However, we need to dream now. Things are looking look good at the moment and we dram of Wembley.”
