Another Day, Another Division At West Ham Disunited
Even when somebody is trying to pretend it is all peace and harmony at Upton Park, the truth slips out. What should we make of this from David Gold?
"In terms of selections and transfers we have zero influence," Gold said. "As to influence on 'Franco, I hope it is positive in the sense we show support and encouragement.
"That is what we do for a living, well that is what I do, I speak for myself. I would like to think that the manager would say that I show him and his team respect. They are there to do the job and I support them in anyway I can."
Look at the turn around in the first sentence of the second paragraph! It is as if Gold has thought in mid sentence, no hang on, this isn't credible, this sounds like bullshit! The "we" becomes "I" very dramatically and the "I" is then emphasised with the words "I speak for myself". Perhaps Gold is deliberately distancing himself from Sullivan, trying to reveal a different approach from his megamouth co-owner? Has there been a falling out between the two Davids because Sullivan wanted Zola out on takeover whilst Gold backed the incumbent manager, believing with home games coming up against Hull, Wolves, Bolton and Wigan, even a nice guy novice could stumble his way through to survival?
Now Sullivan is looking for an Arab backer! As if we haven't got enough divisions, now we could have the possibility of a re-run of the middle eastern crisis with the Jewish Gold at odds with new Arab investors. It's never boring at West Ham is it? Except when we have the ball of course!
