Oh Mr Gold – that may prove embarrasing


David Gold could have a very embarrassing moment if he bumps into any of Jose Fonte, Robert Snodgrass or Andre Ayew around the club tomorrow.

Both the ageing central defender and £20 million midfielder/striker had nightmares against Southampton yesterday at Southampton. Snodgrass meanwhile was again absent amid informed speculation of an imminent move away from the London Stadium

Fonte’s and Ayew’s performances came on top of several underwhelming displays since they arrived at the club  but Gold appeared to take no prisoners when questioned on the trio.

Collectively the three cost a total of around £35 million and even were the club to find buyers for all three they would probably do well to get half of that.

DG was asked by a Twitter follower: “You spent nearly £40 million on Snodgrass, Ayew and Fonte. How do you sleep at night.

Responding at 12.47 AM this morning the co chairman replied “I don’t”

  1. At his age, he’ll be up plenty of times in the night – simply a statement of truth.
    Either that, or he’s taking the p… (oh hang on a minute).

  2. Its only embarrassing if you want to take it in the way that casts a bad light on his comment.
    Personally i just took it that he didnt sleep at night because he was viagra laden & getting his end away 😁

    • I thought the same there just twisting it to make a ruck. ..all he ment was he just don’t sleep a lot …

  3. I took it he was watching over the safe ! But there you go 😯🏦

  4. I thought it was a pretty good comeback. He probably has to get up to pee quite a lot.

  5. Poor old boy should be sunning himself in Monte Carlo and test driving his Ann Summers stock rather than worrying about the deadbeats his mate Sullivan has lumbered him with!

  6. I thought it was pretty funny +1 to DG well done mate !!!

  7. Can’t see anything embarrassing about that.
    Big Chief speak truth, many pounds wasted on this trio. If it were my money I wouldn’t be sleeping either

  8. Well said DG…
