West Ham United chairman David Gold has given a swift response to a Watford fan on Twitter, after the recent managerial upheaval at Vicarage Road.
The Hornets have become the first Premier League club to change goalkeepers this summer with Javi Gracia getting the boot. He was swiftly replaced by former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores. He returns to Watford after leaving in the summer of 2016.
It is the latest managerial change at Watford. The Pozzo family who owns the club adopt an Italian model to the structure of the club which sees managers coming and going on a regular basis.
It led one Watford fan to reach out to David Gold. They suggested Gold should buy the Hertfordshire club, in a hunt for some stability. But West Ham fan Gold made it clear he would not be interested.
Thank you for asking but I’m West Ham till I die. dg https://t.co/wlOh9MfWhN

Of course, Gold is not universally popular at his current club. There have often been protests at how he and partner David Sullivan run the club, especially in relation to transfer budgets and stadium issues.
However, West Ham have a top manager in Manuel Pellegrini settled in the club and have spent big money over the past two summers on talented players like Issa Diop and Sebastien Haller.
Hopefully, that stability can help West Ham to a top-half Premier League finish this season.
