West Ham United’s Halloween tweet backfires

Most football clubs’ social media teams like to make the most of an event, and many came up with Halloween-themed tweets on October 31.

West Ham United decided to come up with new ‘spooky’ names for a best XI, with ‘Witcharito’ and ‘Marlon Scarewood’ leading the line up front.

The club hoped that the fans would interact by coming up with their own versions, but rather than play along, the supporters took a different approach…

The negative mood among the fans comes from an inconsistent spell on the pitch from the players.

The East London outfit have won just two of their 10 Premier League games, drawing three and losing the other five.

At the weekend, Slaven Bilic’s side squandered a two-goal lead to eventually settle for a 2-2 draw with bottom-placed Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Pressure is growing on the manager and players, particularly as the club reside just one point above the relegation zone.
