West Ham fans react as club is fined £100,000 for crowd disturbances

West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to share their views after the club was hit with a whopping £100,000 fine following crowd disturbances during last season’s 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley, as reported in detail by BBC Sport.

The Hammers have received the fine after a number of supporters invaded the pitch in protest at the club’s owners, with one fan even approaching captain Mark Noble only to end up thrown onto the grass.

Another ran into the centre of the pitch with the corner flag held aloft, whilst some children even had to be let onto the Clarets’ substitutes bench in order to avoid the escalating chaos inside the London Stadium.

After the final whistle, a herd of supporters approached the directors’ box to voice their displeasure, which forced co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold to be escorted from the area for their own safety.

The club issued lifetime bans to a number of supporters, and Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady called it “one of the most painful days” in the club’s history.

Whilst it was in fact a very dark day, some fans are happy that it took place as they feel it made the board aware of the faults they were making in running the club, citing the arrival of Felipe Anderson and the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as signs of the club recognising the need for change.
