Bobby Moore covered up for Spurs visit

BobbMooreNewham council have taken the unusual step of boarding up the World Cup Sculpture on the corner of Green street ahead of Wednesday evening’s London derby against Spurs.

The bronze statue featuring Bobby Moore,  Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters and  Ray Wilson has been protected with wooden boards over concerns it could be vandalised by Spurs fans visiting the Boleyn ground for the last time.

West Ham fans have taken to social media to register their disgust that the statue of national English heroes needs to be protected.

“Disgusting that we have to board the Bobby Moore statue up because of tomorrow, football shouldn’t be like this”

“Can’t believe the council or WestHam have boarded up the Bobby Moore statue .. It’s only Spurs ….”

“If spurs fans were thinking of attacking the Bobby Moore statue,they are all wrong uns,the only English man to lift the world cup”

  1. I’m pretty shore there will be guards duty and whoever fancies their chances will not get far !
    Its mug **** spurs Ffs, attacking statues is just about their mark, lol. Cowards . Sneaks like their players and board ! Talking of sneaks j anus sounds like he wants some grief as well with his comment on the big derby , basically talking us down as if we are nothing !!!
    Getting personal !!! **** .didn’t hear levy preaching bans for good behavior , just the smug spud media making us out to be Semitic , let’s just say see you tomorrow and don’t forget you’re diving boots Kane and the rest of the arrogant ******* , I thought it was jabba making excuses about the pitch but turned out to be poksychino . I didn’t think it possible but I absolutely hate this bunch of scum !

  2. Unfortunately , the council are probably correct to board up the statue . Most fans are not old enough to remember the 66 triumph , and a lot of them are cretinous enough to do damage to the statue just because it would be seen West Ham being depicted as winning the World Cup. We did , but some small minded fans don’t have the capacity to demonstrate respect for that Great and Legendary quadro.

  3. If the 66 thing was to occur in france 2016,you get the impression that spurs,millwall ect would be supporting the Germans.

  4. Germans ! Naughty naughty exsoulie !

  5. Wouldn’t it be funny if when they took the hoardings away the statue had disappeared and miraculously relocated itself to the Olympic stadium. Ha ha ha.
