West Ham United joint chairman David Gold has come under fire with plenty of criticism recently for his comments on the youth players at the club.

Gold believes that the teenagers at the club do not have a chance of breaking into a first team set-up full of “seasoned internationals”.

This enraged West Ham fans who had been hoping to see the likes of Declan Rice and Domingos Quina handed opportunities in the first team.

Hammers fans argued that this completely undermined our youth team set-up and rather than backtracking, Gold continued to put forward his case.

Now David Gold appears to have relented a bit by tweeting that West Ham have the most talented bunch of teenagers in over a decade.

However, West Ham fans believe that Gold is just continuing to dig his hole.

Here are a selection of the best responses to this tweet from the joint chairman.
