Avram's Championship Side
David Gold has defended Avram Grant's record at West Ham. In an interview with Sky Sports Gold clearly thinks that Grant should be given time to build his own team,
"It has to be remembered that, basically, Avram did inherit a Championship side because with the 35 points that we got last season that would normally get you relegated.
"Nine out of 10 times, 35 points would get you relegated. So in actual fact he inherited a Championship side.
"So it has been difficult for him. He is building, he is re-gilding and slowly you can see, with six players brought into the team last night (against Manchester United), the strength of the squad and things are starting to come together."
