Gold: “We won’t be selling”


David Gold has made it clear to Hammers fans that he and David Sullivan have no plans to sell West Ham.

There has been regular speculation among fans that the pair only pursued the move to Stratford to attract interest from potential buyers.

But Gold – on Twitter – has knocked back the suggestion insisting the┬ámove is not a money-making exercise.

Responding to a fan on the social networking site, Gold said: “Proceeds from the sale of Upton Park goes towards paying for our move to the new stadium.

“We have no plans to sell the club.”

    Yer, right – Gold is well into his 70’s and obviously has more links with West Ham than Sullivan but both of them are hard-headed businessman who are pushing the ‘business’ forward – when the time is right for them they will sell and move on.

    There’s nothing wrong with that, West Ham are being moved on to the ‘next level’ with the move to the Olympic Stadium – where the Dave’s have got a fantastic deal with the redevelopment being paid for by the taxpayer.

    • Michael Miller says:

      I agree it was predictable David Gold saying we won’t sell – what would you expect him to say?

      The Dave’s are doing a good job from a business point of view – what I would like to see is an imaginative appointment as Manager and investment in the Team – we badly need better players and more entertainment on the field!

  • Sarith says:

    Mr Gold : we wont be selling….any season tickets because sam is still manager next season….

  • StingRay Stewart says:

    Tbh with you even if they did sell up when we move to the OS,so what,the guys got us out of the sh*t & if they walk away from this venture with a tidy bit dough i dont give a damn.Good luck to them!!

  • bubs says:

    As long as who ever keeps investing in the club and the ethos is entertainment and not win and get points even if you send the fans to sleep,does it matter who has there name on the deeds,

  • hammer4life says:

    In my opinion they have done a great job getting us to where we are and I hope they earn a lot of money when they eventually sell because sell they will First there is the age factor and secondly to move us up into a Champions League side we need a lot more financial clout Neither have enough money for that and the additional income from the OS will not be enough. Onwards and upwards.

    Gold n Sulli deserve massive respect, if they had not come in we could have been going down the drain

  • They won’t be selling – family might when its inherited but not G and S

  • bubs says:

    It’s loosing value every day with our results and attitudes even with the new ground you need a team playing entertaining football to fill it,
    If you are keeping BFS then sell DS and DG but if you are getting rid good fortune,
