Flocking to Twitter, plenty of Hammers reacted as under-fire chairman David Gold announced the details for West Ham’s FA Cup third-round trip to National League minnows Stockport County.
David Moyes’ men were drawn against the non-football league outfit and face a trip up North at the beginning of January, with some of these Irons fans hopeful of an FA Cup run and giving rare praise for Gold as they look to make that happen.
Can West Ham go on an unlikely FA Cup run?
Yes, Moyes at the wheel
No, not going to happen
West Ham have started this season off brightly amid protests for GSB to sell their stakes in the club, prompting a few fans to get excited over a potentially fruitful FA Cup journey as Gold announces the details of their first match on social media.
Other Irons, however, still want to see GSB gone as their unwavering stance on the club’s ownership is unlikely to change regardless of their current run.
Find all of their verdicts surrounding Gold and their upcoming trip to Stockport down below.

How strange it is to be heading into a 3rd cup tie against lower league opposition with optimism rather then the usual dread and inevitable embarrassment
