Gold Blames Himself for West Ham Position

West Ham co-Chairman David Gold has been interviewed by the BBC. The interview will be shown tomorrow on Football Focus (BBC1 11.30 am).

In the interview Gold says that West Ham will try and keep their 'England players' if relegated but only have a '1 in 10' chance of succeeding.

Gold also says he 'blames himself' for West Ham's position. He says that after the January transfer window he felt that they had done enough but in hindsight they realise they hadn't.

You can view a brief clip of the interview on the BBC website.

The only thing that he can blame himself for is not replacing Grant in January. From an investment point of view ,the owners have done their bit. You can also say that the owners were at fault for approving the purchase last summer of young players like Barrera and Reid,who though may come good eventually,were too inexperienced to contribute in what was always going to be a difficult season.

Agree with above!
No wonder we are in the shit if gold thinks we even have a 1 in 10 chance of keeping our England players what a muppet!!
Sounds like he is resigned to us going down.

I dont think David Gold is to blame. David will understand the psychological make up of the club as will anyone who"s been supporting them for 50 years like me. Bluntly we have an inferiority complex. When i was a kid i quickly learned that the worse position for the hammers was to go 1-0 up after fifteen minutes. It almost guaranteed we"d lose.

Frankly we need a shrewd tactical manager who the players fear facing if we dont maintain a lead in the game. ( Mr Grant "blagged his way into the job and we need to be more cool headed about what type of manager this club needs to deal with its aching heart)
