Hammers face FA investigation

he FA and West Ham are investigating reports that missiles including a bottle were thrown at Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew after he celebrated in front of Hammers fans.

Ayew’s goal was ruled offside by match officials with three minutes but was overturned by VAR. After running the length of the pitch his celebration in front of blocks 113 and 114 in the west stand incensed the crowd at which point a number of objects were thrown towards him.

Both West Ham and the FA confirmed on Monday that they are looking into the incident.  Any individuals identified is likely to result in them a lifetime ban from the London Stadium. If a group of individuals are implicated, West Ham could face an FA charge for failing to control their supporters, at which point the matter would be referred to an independent regulatory commission.

West Ham are also investigating disorder among Palace’s travelling supporters after two smoke bombs were let off during the London derby on Saturday night.

  1. I agree that missiles should not have been thrown and the offenders should be found and dealt with,but the point here is that missiles would NOT have been thrown if Ayew did not run the length of the pitch to incite the fans in the first place.I guess Ayew gets away with that? Same as Zaha gets away with spitting at Rice.

    • Winge winged on all W.H. Sites there are excuses and never actually admitting fault. One you lost to VAR, it could have gone the other way and there would not be any wingeing and all the scorers (brainless) celebrate to the crowd. Other way around and not a winge. No doubt you will get a result next year. I never expected it but YOU LOST get over it and man up.

    • More to the point poor stewarding with missiles being allowed through the turnstiles. No missiles,, no trouble…. Missiles…. Loads of trouble
