Fulham fans were disrespectful


Fulham fans were disrespectful as George Earthy received treatment

Fulham fans showed a complete lack of respect while George Earthy lay unconscious on the floor singing ‘Is this a library?’, ‘Is there a fire drill?’ and singing a song for Muniz as medics worked on the downed player for seven minutes.

The London rival fans became the first away to sit down in the Sir Trevor Brooking lower only briefly standing for their two goal celebrations and the injury period while Earthy was knocked unconscious.

The Fulham fans did applaud the player when he was  finally removed from the field of play and their manager Marco Silva also send best wishes adding “Sad moment for George Earthy, 18-19 years old only 3 minutes into his debut. That is all we are focused on right now; hoping for good news and wishing him all the best from everybody at Fulham.”

One Fulham fan took to social media to defend his kin by saying  “I was there .. Yes we were singing , but had no idea what was happening until we saw the poor lad stretched off .. Then the whole away end started clapping.. .. Most West Ham fans were leaving and didn’t stay to see what was happening.”

    Big apologies from a Fulham fan. I dont think we realised quite how bad things looked. We all wish the young lad nothing but the best. Hope you guys win on Thursday.

    Us Fulham fans would never show disrespect. Unfortunately because we were about 3 miles from the incident in your stadium we had no idea what was happening. As soon as we saw him stretchered off we ALL applauded…unlike the West Ham fans who took the injury as a convenient excuse to leave. There can’t have been more than 15% of West Ham fans left when he was stretchered off. What a non-story. I would’ve thought it was the West Ham fans who showed a lack of respect by simply leaving. Anyway, glad to hear the lad is doing ok now.
