West Ham United supporters were far from happy after the side could only manage a 0-0 draw with Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.
Gold defended the side's disappointing 0-0 draw with Queens Park Rangers at the weekend, because he feels that injuries have crippled the Hammers' chances.
Five of West Ham's first-team missed out on playing at Loftus Road, and Gold thinks this is the reason why Sam Allardyce's side failed to beat QPR.
Steve it wasn't an excuse it was a fact. Five of our best players were out injured for the QPR game. dg https://t.co/RMNv1Sci2x— David Gold (@davidgold) April 29, 2015
Supporters of the London club are not accepting Gold's reasoning, though, and they have reacted badly to his tweet.
Hammers fans are disgruntled after seeing their side go on a run of just two wins in 16 matches, and under-fire boss Allardyce has been on the receiving end of most of their criticism.
They feel that the 60-year-old boss should have been able to cope, despite their current injury crisis, and have slated his team selections.
@davidgold And what about the previous 16 games where we accumulated 2 wins out of 16?— Mark Harrison (@MarkHarrison23) April 29, 2015
@davidgold it might be a fact but that isn't the reason we dropped points against a near relegated team. Lack of substitutions, poor team— Rich Denmark (@richdenm) April 29, 2015
@davidgold but please tell me why are nene and amalfitano keep getting overlooked? We are not winning they deserve a chance— Steve tiley (@SteveHeathrow1) April 29, 2015
@davidgold please don't sign SA up again for next season. I won't come back if he's still here— Lukey T COYI ⚒ (@westhammers78) April 29, 2015
@davidgold Use social media but only when it suits, you're ignoring important questions. 5 injuries, Why are Nene & Amalfintano overlooked?— West Ham Network (@WestHamMatters) April 29, 2015
@davidgold Your right it is a fact, but Nolan, Jarvis & Cole isn't working, why not try Nene & Amalfitano, that's what we can't understand.— ⚒ Bryan ⚒ (@Bryan_WHU) April 29, 2015
@davidgold Trying to justify keeping Sam. Sigh. What do you and Brady watch every week? Or has Sam got something on you?— Jamie Norwood (@JimboNorwood) April 29, 2015
It sums up the feeling around West Ham at the moment, with their season having taken a disappointing turn for the worse.
The Hammers appeared to be in with a chance of challenging for Europe over the first few months of the season, but they now look set to finish in mid-table and frustrations are rising at the Boleyn Ground as a result.
