The West Ham co-owner has stood firm on social media.
Indeed, one fan hit out at the 26-year-old forward rather out of the blue and Gold told him that he was 'completely wrong.'
Carroll has looked unplayable at times since completing a big-money move from Liverpool to West Ham. But the target man has struggled with injuries, seeing his playing time considerably curtailed as a result.
You are completely wrong on all accounts. dg https://t.co/ShvCpxocZW— David Gold (@davidgold) September 3, 2015
@davidgold He's a bad influence on the team, poor discipline, doesn't look after himself - send him out on loan to a Championship side— Peter Stone (@PeterSt73617839) September 3, 2015
And, in response to Gold's tweet, the reaction appeared unanimous. West Ham fans seem to be big supporters of Carroll right now, especially considering their striker shortage.
The Hammers forward is already back to his old tricks in training, mocking Aaron Cresswell and goalkeeper Adrian light-heartedly on social media.
We are yet to see how the 26-year-old will perform on match duty for the east London side, however, and how long he can stay fit.
Still, the mood is positive at Upton Park after a Deadline Day that saw West Ham secure four new signings. And that has translated to a wave of support for Carroll after the criticism. Here's a selection of the replies to Gold's defence:
@davidgold I can't wait for him to put the claret and blue on again!— Jayne Johnston (@Jaynejon) September 3, 2015
@davidgold one of the best strikers we have ever had just need to keep him fit . If it's frustrating for us must be 10x worse for him— irons (@billywhufc) September 3, 2015
