Gold’s rapid “binocular” response

goldIrons co chairman David Gold has again been forced to defend the Olympic Stadium views.

DG – a regular visitor to Twitter – has been at the end of another sarcastic comment regarding the likely views available of Premier League football at the club’s new home.

The hardy annual was raised again when a follower declared: “ Free binoculars with every ticket


Long suffering Gold – faced with the same sort of jobe regularly in the past – chose not to produce one of his witty one liners but instead made his position clear.

Instead he said: “You don’t need binoculars at Wembley and you won’t need them at the Olympic stadium. dg”

Yesterday ClaretandHugh published a story here from a Hammers fan who, having attended his season ticket interview and used the seat at a rugby international.

Jack Miles messaged  us to say: “If I’m honest I was worried if they’d make it look better on the computer than it really was but I think the view is actually better when you’re there. It was superb over there! Really excited for next season!”  Jack’s season ticket is Band 2 Block 233 row 51
