West Ham fans attack club for pitch invader bans

West Ham confirmed this week that they have handed lifetime bans to the fans that invaded the pitch against Burnley, and it’s pretty clear who the fans are siding with.

It’s been a pretty toxic season for West Ham, as performances on the pitch have echoed the atmosphere in their new stadium – soulless.

While plenty were excited about the move to the Olympic Stadium, many fans were infuriated by the move away from the Boleyn Ground, and those concerns have proved justified since the move.

Things reached boiling point in the recent loss to Burnley, as fans literally ran riot on the pitch and in the stands. Burnley won the match comfortably, but there was only one story after the match, as fans frustrations with David Gold and David Sullivan toppled onto the pitch.

The club have now announced that five individuals have been banned for their actions, and that they are continuing investigations into several other incidents.

Fans have been reacting to the news on Twitter, and some of the best reactions can be found below…
