Gold: “We’re classy, tough and streetwise”


Gold2David Gold believes there’s much more to come from the new West Ham and believes the fans saw them maturing by the minute at Turf Moor.

He wasn’t surprised to see Sean Dyche’s outfit attack us from the start but was equally sure the Hammers would see them off in the second period because we are “classy,  tough and streetwise.”

Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh he explained: “It was no surprise to anybody that they tore out of the traps and they had us on the back foot for a long time.

But we were so reslient and when the chips were down in the second period, class told.

We have some great players at this club now and both Valencia and Sakho are very special  along with two full backs who had tremendous games.

It was also brilliant to see Carlton score and he had as big a smile on his face as I can remember seeing for a long time. He was terrific and is loving what’s going on here. A lot may have given up on him but he showed us there’s still a lot in the locker alongside Sakho.

We are all trying to stay cool, calm and collected but my aspirations are rising, these times have been a long time coming – we all deserve them.”

    If Cole hadn’t been such a chicken and turned ng his hack instead of doing his job then they wouldn’t have scored .he needed to score to make up for it.watch their goal again ,you’ll see for yourself.
