The Hammers’ flirtations with the relegation zone led to the eventual dismissal of Slaven Bilic and although the London club have consolidated their league position ever since, West Ham fans are livid to see no transfer incomings this January.
One such fan seemed to let loose his rather morose views on club chairman David Gold’s competence, going on to label him with some x-rated words.
However apparently nobody was ready for the wicked reply Gold had in store for his critic as he navigated away from any sort of illicit references, displaying a clever presence of mind as Twitter applauded his acumen in coming up with such a cheeky response.
The joint chairman of West Ham finds himself facing criticism from a few sections of the Claret and Blue support, who see him as a hurdle in their club’s progress and want him gone. Yet it would seem he certainly won a few over with his latest social media activity.
