David Gold underlines the change in West Ham’s mentality

David Gold seems happy with the way things are going for West Ham United at the moment.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has highlighted on the club’s official website the change in mentally this season.

Gold has claimed that in previous years, West Ham would have settled for a draw away from home, but now even a point at times comes as a disappointment.

“In the past six years I’ve been at West Ham, you go to away games thinking ‘can we get a point’?” the 79-year-old wrote on West Ham’s official website. “Now there isn’t one club I go to where I don’t think we’re going to get something.”

The West Ham co-chairman has also outlined what everyone at the club should tell themselves in order to have a successful season.

“We must keep telling ourselves that we are a good side,” wrote Gold. “We’re not sixth in the table because we’re lucky, we’re sixth in the table because we’ve earned it.”

West Ham are having a brilliant season and find themselves sixth in the Premier League table at the moment.

Slaven Bilic’s side are not entirely out of the running for a top-four finish, although a Champions League spot is probably beyond them.

Nevertheless, the Hammers should at least finish in the top 10 of the Premier League this campaign.

The London outfit will return to action later today when they take on Southampton away from home at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League.
