Gold suggests what has to be remembered about West Ham

West Ham joint-chairman and co-owner David Gold has explained what he wants everyone to remember about the club.

West Ham United co-owner and joint chairman David Gold told talkSPORT that he feels the club have two big seasons in front of them.

The Hammers have been inconsistent so far in the current campaign, with a victory away at Liverpool in their last game before the international break.

Gold has suggested that he feels there is currently a pressure hanging over the club to give the fans the sort of seasons they can remember for plenty of years as the club looks to develop.

“It has to be remembered that we’ve got two very big seasons coming up. We’ve got the last season at Upton Park and then the exciting season following the move to the Olympic Stadium,” he told talkSPORT.

“These will be memorable seasons that fans will remember for years and years and years to come. We’ve got to give them a team we can ensure will be successful.”

A developing support base

It’s vital that the next two seasons go well for West Ham because the club is trying to attract new fans.

The move to the Olympic Stadium sees the potential attendance for home games increase significantly and the club need to be sure that fans will keep on coming back to get right behind the side.

It’s also important that West Ham create an entertaining team for financial reasons because of the new commercial opportunities created by the stadium move, which will go alongside increased revenue from TV deals, allowing manager Slaven Bilic to invest back into the team.
