David Gold reacts on Twitter after West Ham defeat

David Gold blamed West Ham's defeat to Watford on 'individual errors'.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has taken to Twitter to react after West Ham's 2-0 defeat away at Watford on Saturday afternoon.

The Hammers succumbed to a 2-0 loss after a brace from Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo, who also caused a sending off for West Ham defender James Collins with a superb display.

The result was a major disappointment for manager Slaven Bilic, who just a week ago was celebrating one of the club's biggest home wins in recent times having beaten Chelsea 2-1.

Now, the Croatian must pick his players up ahead of next weekend's home game against Everton - and co-chairman David Gold has had his say on the defeat.

Using his Twitter account after the game, Gold said the Hammers must bounce back next weekend, and put the defeat at Vicarage Road down to defensive errors.


Andy Carroll was certainly at fault the opening Watford goal, having been caught dallying in possession inside his own box, and Ikechi Anya's cross was bundled home by Ighalo from close range.

Then, Ighalo's second goal came after James Tomkins failed to clear another Anya cross, with both goals proving to be somewhat self-inflicted - and Bilic will be looking to erase any future defensive errors from his team's defensive performances.
