West Ham chairman David Gold thrilled with Spurs win
Hammers co-owner admits worry over club propping up the Premier League table
West Ham co-owner David Gold has described Saturday’s performance over Tottenham as the best he has seen since buying the club and exclaimed his relief that the club are off the bottom of the Premier League.
The Hammers were worthy 1-0 victors over London rivals Spurs at Upton Park, with Frederic Piquionne’s strike separating the two sides.
It was the Hammers first victory of the campaign and one savoured by Gold, who was thrilled with what he saw in east London.
“That was the best performance since I returned to the club. It was outstanding. It was great to see Kieron Dyer back. The spirit and determination was just the best,” said the chairman.

“We’ve all been worried. There’s nothing worse than being at the bottom of the league. It’s a terrible place to be and you wonder where are you going from here.
“We’re off the bottom of the table and it’s a great feeling. I’m so pleased for Avram - who I know has worked his socks off - and the players, who have been outstanding. They have worked hard.”

That perseverance yielded a positive result on Saturday and Gold has warned Saturday’s opponents Fulham that there is more to come.
“When you start a new season with new players, a new manager, new owners, I would say it’s not bad that we’ve taken six, seven or eight games - including the cup - to look like a team,” he said.
“Now, anyone coming to Upton Park, beware. We want the same again next week. Just keep going. You keep playing like this and we’ll start climbing the table.”
