West Ham were denied a win against Chelsea in the London derby at the weekend due to a controversial decision.
Cesc Fabregas made no mistake from the resulting spot kick, and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
Following the defeat, Gold claimed on Twitter that for West Ham to get favourable penalty decisions, they need to become a big club.
Former West Ham winger Sinclair has taken to Twitter to use stats to back the club’s co-chairman’s opinion.
Gold has also suggested the use of a TV referee for making key decisions.
@davidgold do u see a 3rd official for decisions, as we are always on the end of bad calls like Stutters on a penalty that wasn't a penalty?— Daniel Harris (@johndan42) March 21, 2016
80% of these result changing errors could be avoided if we employed a TV ref link to the on field ref. dg https://t.co/5jZpMfOxqX— David Gold (@davidgold) March 21, 2016
Ref blows foul. Is it inside or outside the box. Ref walks towards lineo TV ref sees slow replay, clearly outside. Free kick. Seamless. dg— David Gold (@davidgold) March 21, 2016

@davidgold We've been robbed twice in a week DG because of referees. 'Big clubs' getting the decisions again!— Jamie Norwood (@JimboNorwood) March 19, 2016
West Ham are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 50 points from 30 matches.
Slaven Bilic’s side are just a point behind Manchester City, who are currently fourth in the standings and have a game in hand.
