Exclusive

West Ham tonight admitted that the £50k fine handed out by the Football Association for failing to control their players at Anfield is probably based on previous recent incidents.

The club is relaxed about the size of the fine being more concerned that Mark Noble’s red card has been overturned following an incident involving Danny Ings.

A source told ClaretandHugh exclusively: “We were probably expecting a fine of around £30k but we have previous and that may be the reason its higher.”

The Irons were fined £30k last season following problems at St Mary’s after Adrian was dismissed and earlier a fracas at Everton saw them receive a £20k fine.

Our source said: “We can have no complaints – the rules are there and need to be obeyed. Yes, it’s an emotional game but you have to respect the referee and when and how often do they change their minds?!”

  1. £50k? p*ss in the ocean

  2. Fair does,we did have some history.Sure that the FA wanted a piece of us as well though after the ref got shown to be in the wrong.I never understand why people say you should be able to control yourself,you know the rules.When your in the thick of things at whatever level you get caught up in the moment.You may know the rules but when you see a team mate get stitched up you temporarily lose the plot sometimes.The players are human beings not bleedin robots.

    • Fair does what? or do you mean fair do’s? – seriously the quality of posting here isn’t quality at all – their the lowest common denominator and there’s no doubt about it, and you’re and your – geez talk about knuckle draggers…….. it’s embarrassing!

  3. Respect the ref ? How about the ref respects the players as well ? How about the FA respects the clubs and the public ? If a ref, a professional, well paid, makes blatant mistakes, he has to be accountable. He needs to be set on the side, go to a refresher course, spend some time in the lower leagues, whatever. But you cannot condone over and over again the horrible decisions we see weekend after weekend. It becomes a double standard, and that is unacceptable.

  4. We have been framed,the world is against West Ham 😉

  5. Let’s see if the same applies to other clubs during the season . That mob from the West of the river springs to mind . I never like seeing the Ref surrounded by objecting players .
    But , it seems West Ham have been singled out to make a point . Ok , we’ll take it on the chin , but there are certain clubs that have been doing it for what seems like forever .

  6. 1.28 mummy late for work,
    Notsobright you are picking the wrong playthings,
    Just keep dreaming of what ever turns your sad mind and leave Kevin to think about football which you seem to lack ant knowledge of,
    Nighty Nighty sad person,

  7. Pity notsogood can offer absolutely nothing towards any articles,only to be a total embarressment to himself.Maybe if Hugh actually came on here sometimes we could rid ourselves of this tool.

  8. If everyone ignores these two then they will soon get bored. No point blocking them as they will only sign in again under a new name.

  9. Exactly Essex,they are just looking for a reaction.If they dont get one they will get bored.Maybe i should make an account on Whtid & fire a few back,lol.Im joking btw Wetties before you get your block fingers ready,lol,never go there anyway 😀

  10. Shows just how far we’ve come from last season to this season when the only thing we have to argue about is some silly forum rivalry. I love reading all the posts on here, I only don’t go on the other site because it’s blocked at work but based on what I read here that’s probably a good thing! COYI!

  11. The vast majority of posters on whtid are ok, a couple of idiots but then we all have them ;-D

  12. Haha,i find it amusing that some of them resort to making accounts on here just to try to fire things up.All seems rather pointless to me,but each to their own i guess.Not my idea of fun though.Still,good luck to them if it is how they get their jollies.Clearly have a pretty mundane,boring life in reality 😀

  13. You just got to love cowards who post from the safety of their homes.You get Cyber Bullies but we have our very own Cyber Coward.

  14. With 2 weeks of boredom no proper football at least little notsobright give you something to play with but just wish he knew something about football,
    He is like the child who keeps butting into a grown ups conversation,
    Pity we aren’t playing today,can’t wait to see what side goats selected that should make for debate,

  15. I got that feeling as well.

  16. If west ham score!!they might be fined for celebrating, mind you I’m not into kissing blokes?? And yes!! I am a bloke.
