West Ham fans are once again furious with their owners, after the club announced new security measures at the London Stadium.
Hammers’ fans were angered last week when the club issued lifetime stadium bans to five fans for the protests during the loss to Burnley.
Of course, plenty of fans were disappointed by the manner of the some of the protests, but the message of the protests was something nearly every fan could agree on.
Now the club have announced new security measures at the ground, which includes security gates throughout the concourse and on the bridges in the lower tier.
Fans gathered on the bridge in front of the director’s box last time out to harass the club’s owners, and now fans feel that the new security measures are more focused on protecting the men in charge than the fans in the stands.
West Ham host Southampton on Saturday, which will be absolutely massive in the race for Premier League survival.
Following a rallying cry from captain Mark Noble earlier this week, the club has asked fans to unite and get behind the team.

The owners are protecting themselves not the fans. They're a disgrace to football.

A series of measures has been put in place to ensure the safety of the three mugs that no one can stand. Oh, and sod the disabled supporters we’ve moved. We know you all have had problems with the stadium for two years, but we only care now it affects us.

Sorry, what measures of security have been implemented to ensure safety of supporters? I don't see any.
