DAVID GOLD’s daughter Jacqueline was Hammered on social media for tweeting good wishes to West Ham at Manchester City – long after the game hadbeen called off due to Storm Ciara.
Gold Junior added to the stick her dad has been getting as West Ham co-owner with her Sunday afternoon gift to online trolls.
Despite the 4.30pm Etithad clash being postponed before 1pm, she posted more than an hour later: “Got a good feeling about the game today… Let’s do this!”
With David Moyes’ Hammers now in the relegation zone, fans were in no mood to let successful businessman Jacqueline off the hook for her howler.
Taunts included: “She’s either joking or West Ham are a mess” … “Embarrassing really?” … “Clueless”… “Did no one tell her?” … and the inevitable: “Couldn’t make this up.”
One supporter took it further, saying: “I will have a great feeling when your family are no longer part of our club.”
SHE’S RIGHT – WE WON’T LOSE!
But with weather problems hitting much of the country, even for Golds there is a silver lining in every cloud.. as some fans pointed out she was right to have a “good feeling” because West Ham would definitely be spared defeat.
One long-haul follower joked – after the game was already off – “I reckon we can win today! Ive travelled all the way from Thailand for this, just got off the plane in Manchester for this. Come on you irons!!!”
Another tweeted: “Agreed. We defo won’t be losing today….”
And one added: That’s probs why she has a good feeling about the game since we can’t lose it today.”
Although Sheffield United’s home clash with Bournemouth escaped the 90mph winds, enabling the Blades to go fifth with a late 2-1 win, football, rugby and horse-racing schedules have been decimated by the gale.
And at 12.47pm City tweeted: “Due to extreme and escalating weather conditions and in the interests of supporter and staff safety, todays Premier League match against West Ham has been postponed.”
It did not, of course, stop West Ham supporters continuing to demand winds of change off the field – with Gold Group International chief executive Jacqueline fuelling the ire at her dad with her odd post.
One kind fan speculated: “That is a scheduled tweet if ever Ive seen one.”
But many used her message to ram home an agenda against co-owners gold Senior and David Sullivan.
Such posts included: “Hopefully we can leave David Gold in Manchester.”
