Chairman pleas for fans' support


Filed: Thursday, 9th November 2017

Co-Chairman David Gold has taken to social media in order to ask supporters to get behind new manager David Moyes.

Gold, who has been in the firing line in recent weeks as a result of West Ham's poor form since moving to Stratford urged the fans to support the club's new manager, who was unveiled on Tuesday.

"Hello all West Ham fans," he wrote. "The board have made their decision to appoint David Moyes as the new manager - can I ask you to get behind him and the team to help push us up the table to safety.

"Together I believe we can achieve our dreams. dg"


Gold's message appears to be part of a concerted effort by the club to garner support for Moyes via a social media push.

However vice-chair Karren Brady, who wrote scathingly about the 54-year-old Scot in a recent newspaper column is yet to comment publicly on his appointment.

"I really hope that from now on he starts to think before he speaks," she wrote in The Sun back in April, after Moyes was fined £30,000 by the FA.

"Lots of people have said, in defence of Moyes, that it was “just a joke”, as evidenced by the fact [Ms] Sparks laughed when he said it. But the reality is it’s just another brilliant example of the pressure women are under to laugh off these everyday moments of sexism as a joke."
