  1. even if there are proper grounds, why were West Ham not told about any investigation earlier? Why were West Ham allowed to sell their allocation before being told of the supporter ban? Are UEFA really that inefficient or is there something more behind their despicable timing?

    • I have a suspicion that if our away fans traveled in huge numbers to Vienna major confrontations and possibly violent scenes could ensue.
      Some of their fans who visited LS were hell bent on causing trouble, from the very first corner kick we took, which was very early into the match, projectile’s rained down onto the pitch aimed at Cresswell and then to the left objects were thrown at our fans inciting retaliation.
      Secondly, what happened in Genk was regrettable, those who traveled without tickets and caused a scene should bow their heads in shame for tarnishing our clubs name.

      For the love of WHUFC, please don’t travel to Vienna and cause us any further embarrassment. It’s a beautiful city, full of wonderful architecture and culture, if you do plan to go regardless, enjoy yourselves, be sensible and if push comes to shove, take the higher ground and walk away from potential flashpoint’s!
