David Gold Twitter Question Time v Clunge

In this week's Moore Than Just A Podcast  Episode 13 we covered David Gold's week of answers to West ham fans as well as inside information from Clunge.

Clunge News

Last Tuesday I said that Big sam confirmed that Matty Taylor will start on Saturday 
if he comes through 45/60 mins today in reserve match.

I got this one wrong as they didn't want to risk him for the whole 90 minuites. He did come on though

A Westham insider on ESPN website confirms james tomkins not for sale and will be offered a new deal even though he  still has 3 years left. Wonder who the insider is and where they got that from then ;-)

Leeds may still sack O'Brien and if so he'll sign for us

Henry lansbury hopes to be back for the boxing day game away to Birmingham.

David gold confirms we will buy players in jan and not sell our important players

Very strange rumors that chelsea have had sam baldock watched on 3 occasions and may bid for him in the transfer window.

Carew may be fit for saturdays game vs burnley. Still 7k tickets left

Winston reid out for a further 5 weeks. Baldock hopeful no more than 3 weeks.

As baldock is also injured whu will decide if they will recall hall from oxford.

David Gold confirms he hopes to sign 3 players in Jan. Andy Johnson is Sam's main target but blackburn also want him. No chance with Zamora.
