Police and stewards go into action as trouble flares

london-stadium-fansTrouble flared halfway down the Trevor Brooking Stand behind the Irons goal towards the end of tonight’s game with segregation seemingly at the bottom of the problem.

Fans met on the walkways and both police in riot gear and stewards were involved in calming things down as they looked to spill into serious trouble.

They did a good job but the scenes were unsavoury and questions will be asked as a reult of went went off.

Fans were seen throwing objects and a couple of chairs are also thought to have been used as missiles.

Police helicopters were circling the area during and after the game where both clubs had been at pains to issue statements asking their fans to behave themselves.

We will try to bring you more on this story as reports come in.

  1. What a brilliant night’s football. West Ham were fantastic throughout, Bilic got the selections spot on. That was a pretty good Chelsea side that we outplayed and deserved to beat.
    The atmosphere and support from 50 odd thousand people was superb and singing from around the whole stadium created the best atmosphere to date.
    What a shame that a relatively small group of intellectually challenged half breeds have managed to grab the headlines from the players and team they pledge to support.
    These individuals truly aren’t fit to wear the shirt and I would ask that each one of them have their photos and names published so that their families, their employers and any other decent person who does support West Ham and football generally can see who these faceless individuals were. Yes ban them for life.
    Well done also to the (underpaid and overcriticised) stewards who were brave enough to stand between these idiots on both sides of the barrier.
