David Gold has admitted being seriously hurt at a Twitter claim which questioned his motives on telling supporters to sit not stand at the London Stadium.
The club has issued a recent statement via Karren Brady that the club would take serious action against those who continue to stand and obstruct the view of others.
But the debate is rumbling on with the stadium capacity of 66,000 not being attainable until the issue is solved – a position revealed over and over again by the club and one which has been reported on CandH and confirmed by Gold on the social network.
However, the debate hit a new low this evening when a Gold follower went for the co chairman’s throat snapping:“it’s simple
@davidgold U want us to sit so you can make more money stop with all the pretence we not all thick be upfront with your reasons.”
The club chief retweeted and said: “Richard I can’t tell you how painful I fine your tweet I have sunk a large percentage of my wealth into your club dg.”
In fairness it should be reported that a mass of fans came out in support of the joint chairman outraged at the follower’s comment with one calling for DG to block him.
