  1. Sadly I feel we deserve it for the disgraceful throwing of sharp objects at the corner taker. Those idiots don’t represent WHU except that in that situation, sadly they do. Then the clowns who run on the pitch – that rule has been in place for years, Homer Simpsons. A class football club misrepresented by no marks

    Sadly they do represent West Ham. All the world saw that to say otherwise is just putting your head in the sand. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing tbh. It again happened at the end of the game.More idiots who thought it was funny. There would be many who probably found it entertaining at the time. We got away with it,totally. One of their players had a nasty cut that in all honesty could easily have affected the outcome if he needed to go off a pay no extra part in the game.
    Some reports state that we have to play our first European game behind closed doors,at home i imagine. That would be a fairer punishment . Ludicrous to think it was a few fans doing this,what was there to gain.?

  3. Totally agree Boleyn as I said, they don’t represent us (spiritually) except on this occasion they do, ie we are judged by their moronic actions . The thugs shamed us on a night where we were most proud.
