Hammers boss Slaven Bilic addressed the media today during his pre-match press conference ahead of his side's game against Liverpool on Saturday, and responded to a question asking him if he has spoken to David Gold and David Sullivan following his team's disappointing draw with Crystal Palace last weekend, as quoted by the club's official website.
