West Ham appointed Kevin Nolan and Paul Nevin as first-team coaches yesterday (BBC).

And Hammers co-owner David Gold took to Twitter to share the news:

Unfortunately for the 83-year-old, however, his tweet backfired, with some West Ham fans hijacking the post, pleading with him to sell up:

 

The Hammers are in all sorts of trouble at the moment. They are currently sitting in 18th spot in the Premier League table, one point adrift of safety. And the West Ham fans are pointing the finger of blame squarely at David Gold, his co-owner David Sullivan and vice-chairman Karren Brady.

Things could be set to get worse for the east London outfit too.

They face back-to-back away games against the Premier League’s top two sides – Manchester City and Liverpool.

The good news for West Ham is that they signed Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek in January. And David Moyes will be hoping that the two new-boys can make an instant impact for his team.

The Hammers certainly have the quality in their squad, it’s just a matter of whether the players have enough fight and spirit for the battle that lies ahead.

It’s just  shame that Gold and Sullivan’s running of the club recently has got them into the mess that they currently find themselves in.
