David Gold: Bilic’s appointment is the start of ‘West Ham’s time’

David Gold believes West Ham are set to start a new era of success.

Speaking to the official West Ham website, co-chairman David Gold has expressed his belief that the Hammers are embarking on an exciting new adventure that will come to define ‘West Ham’s time’ of success.

Gold said: “Slaven is special to the fans and he was the fans favourite throughout the managerial process. It is when all those things come together and you could sum it up by saying this is 'West Ham's time.'

“The new manager, saying goodbye to the Boleyn Ground which is going to be emotional for everyone and then the new adventure of going into the new Stadium.”

It sounds as if the Hammers have big plans for the future, and Gold’s comments should truly excite fans of the East London club.

Slaven Bilic is now head coach and will lead the Hammers into Europe this coming season, whilst also looking to establish the club in the top 10 of the Premier League.

One big signing has already been made in Pedro Obiang, who turned down the chance of playing for AC Milan to head to the Boleyn Ground, and more are sure to follow in the coming weeks.

On top of the on-pitch changes - which themselves have been exciting - West Ham have just one season left at the Boleyn Ground before heading of to the Olympic Stadium in what promises to be a financially beneficial move.

With European football to their name, and the chance to compete with the biggest teams in England for matchday revenue, the Hammers are sure to become a big attraction in English football.

With all these changes occurring in quick success, the club are setting themselves up for a prolonged period of success, and as long as Bilic can impress on the field of play, there is just no knowing how good West Ham can become.
