West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has issued a defiant message to the club's fans, stating that he is not going anywhere.
Gold and fellow board member David Sullivan ended up leaving the box near the end of the game as the fans' protests became more vociferous, with Sir Trevor Brooking claiming that the latter was hit by a coin.
However, Gold is of the opinion that most Hammers fans are "decent people" and would not resort to the volatile behaviour seen on Saturday.
"The vast majority are decent people whatever they may feel about us," the 81-year-old told the Claret & Hugh fanzine.
"We were mortified when we had to leave the box – it's unreal to hear these people saying we have stolen money and that we are liars and cheats. It's all so wrong.
"It's not as though they are pointing at a specific issue – they are all generalisations and simply not true.
"I have no objection whatsoever to those who don't like the way we run the club. Many of them are very decent people who argue their case passionately and intelligently – that's fine.
"But I will never be driven away from anything by the behaviour I saw today. It won't happen because of all the decent fans out there."
West Ham, who are three points clear of the Premier League relegation zone, have three weeks to prepare for their next outing against Southampton.
