West Ham United co-owner David Gold has been up to his old tricks on Twitter.
West Ham fans have not hidden their disdain for Gold, his fellow co-owner David Sullivan and their vice-chairman Karren Brady.
Supporters have been protesting for Sullivan and Gold to sell West Ham to more ambitious owners.
Gold puts his head above the parapet again
Gold put his head above the parapet on Thursday when he took to Twitter.
But, as has so often been the case when it comes to Gold’s dalliance on social media over the years, he only ended up making things worse.
Gold was trying to post a positive message in relation to the job David Moyes is doing having led West Ham to their best start to a top flight season for 35 years.
The co-owner was highlighting an excerpt from a feature by The Times which hailed David Moyes a ‘miracle worker’ for the job he is doing at West Ham.
Hammers co-owner tries to post positive message about ‘miracle worker’ Moyes but fans point out bitter irony
And West Ham fans were incredulous with Gold that he could not see the irony of his post.
Many were quick to point out that Moyes is being dubbed a miracle worker because he has to manage West Ham under Sullivan and Gold.
The Times report hails Moyes for reversing West Ham’s fortunes and having them aiming for Europe rather than worrying about relegation.
But as far as West Ham fans are concerned the latter should not even be an issue after promises that were made to them on leaving their beloved Upton Park for the London Stadium.
“The Times – How miracle worker David Moyes reversed WHU fortunes,” Gold posted from The Times report on Twitter.
“Here we are, at the halfway point of the season, and West Ham have 32 points, their best tally at this stage for 35 years. They are looking towards Europe rather than peering nervously over their shoulders. DG.”
Fans tell Gold ‘the clue is in the title’ and call for investment but some defend owners
It is fair to say Gold was savaged for his lack of awareness.
And many West Ham fans were quick to make the connection clear.
Hammers supporters also called on Gold to back his ‘miracle worker’ manager by signing a striker this month.
Some did point out the owners deserve credit for re-appointing Moyes and putting a lid on leaks and transfer rumours.
