Part of the Talksport interview, transcribed by myself…
Comedy Gold Boycie;
“Nobody loved Upton Park more than me.
There are very people that can remember going back 70 years and those experiences.
I actually played, what 20 games, as a young player, actually at Upton Park.
You can imagine the wonderful experience for a young boy of 15, 16 to play at Upton Park.
Those memories will never leave me.
In actual fact, memories became really a part of the argument, in that when it was first muted that we were first interested in the Olympic Stadium and that we would have to.. …that would mean leaving Upton Park, my thoughts were, ‘I don’t want to leave Upton Park. All my memories, all my young life and a young man, all revolved around Upton Park.’
Then I suddenly realized, you know what? 90% of Upton Park is completely different to my early memories, you know? The Chicken Run has gone, the urinals have gone, erm, err, it has completely changed!
But my memories, I can just look into my mind, I can see the Chicken Run, I can see Ernie Gregory, I can see Parsons and Tucker… I can see these old great players. I can see Bobby Moore, I can see Martin Peters, then I can see Trevor Brooking and Devonshire, Alan Devonshire. They are there in my mind. You know what? We can leave Upton Park!”

The David Gold interview | The board are rattled
Hammers Chat West Ham Forum

Gonzo dissects the Talksport interview which saw Ian 'Moose' Abrahams flirt with West Ham chairman David Gold
Did he love Upton Park more than any West Ham fan when he had his arse plonked in his seat at St Andrews?
Pre planned interview, far too friendly. Hopes and dreams, should have published a manifesto, then we would have known it was all just a pack of lies.
Even if we had gone into administration and had points deducted and tumbled down the league's, with our fan base we would still bounce back at Upton park. Nobody loved Upton Park more than him....... Really, where was he for most of his life . It wasn't on the terraces with our fans. Jack walker loved his Club and did good on his hopes and dreams. Golds love is for business not our club. The moose a journalist
Gonzo-All propaganda in order to present a different perception to the fans reality. It's basically what media, advertising, government and business overall practice to constantly disrespect, manipulate and control us, (the mob). It has worked in the past, will work now and in the future. "Moose" Abrahams is a pawn in this game. His mission (and he was prepared to accept it) was to appease a situation that has been emotionally charged. His job was to placate the fans. My question to you Gonzo, is why do you expect more from Gold and
