West Ham fans have been reacting to images and video of the Boleyn Ground being blown up in controlled explosions of the Hollywood action film Final Score. Many supporters believe the destruction has been disrespectful while others have found the images heartbreaking.
A sample of comments on twitter include:
@MartinHickey9 Sad Sad Day
@rickhimself101 It’s like leaving there wasn’t enough, they need to do that too!
@HaddonEvents Criminal, they have sold our soul and now they gleefully post pictures of our home being blown up.
@Tillroll78 I’m sure the board earned nice bit of money out of that. Sold us down the river
@Spirit_1980 just heartbreaking
@Ironviews Can’t help but feel deeply disturbed watching videos of Upton Park getting blown up.
@KUMBDotcom Maybe it’s just me, but I feel this is bordering on sacrilege…
@Verge_Walton Trying to sell me MY site for £50 was bad enough. But blowing it up?!?Terrible PR (again) and disrespectful.
