Davids letter calls for best behaviour


David-Sullivan-and-David-Gold_2441171David Sullivan and David Gold have issued a letter to fans asking for their behaviour to remain exemplary at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Previous matches between the two sides have been tarnished by anti-Semitic chants from a minority of West Ham supporters and  Gold and Sullivan have called on our fans to be on their best behaviour. weekend.

“Sam and the team have been working hard on the training pitch this week to put last week’s wrongs right and Sunday’s game offers an exciting opportunity for us to bounce back [from defeat at West Brom],” they said in a statement on West Ham’s website.

“We would also like to remind all fans attending the match at White Hart Lane that they will be acting as ambassadors for West Ham United and their behaviour should reflect the values and standards of our club.

“Working with the Metropolitan Police, the Club will continue to adopt a zero tolerance policy towards any form of discriminatory behaviour and any fan found to be acting inappropriately — including racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic behaviour — will be punished to the full extent of the law and banned from attending matches.

“We are rightly proud of our world-famous support home and away and we look forward to the famous ‘claret and blue army’ once again getting behind the team with all their heart and showing the world that following the Hammers means supporting with pride, passion and respect.”

    While I join everybody in agreeing wholeheartedly with the sentiments expressed by the club, it is also hard to forget just how much we “dislike” the spuds!

    Hope we stuff them and that new signing nene scores the winner! COYI!
