West Ham United’s nostalgic tweet backfires

West Ham United are celebrating 122 years of existence today, so as expected, the club put together some social media pieces to celebrate.

The Hammers took a trip down memory lane from when the club was founded on June 29, 1985.

A video was posted on the club’s official Twitter feed documenting the club’s progress through the years, but it was not warmly welcomed by every supporter.

Some enjoyed the sentiment, but the majority criticised the club for their recent failings.

For some time now, pockets of fans have been unhappy with co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, in particular their transfer business.

Many were also angry that the club departed the Boleyn Ground to move into the London Stadium, which is much bigger and more modern, but has been accused of lacking atmosphere.

After the club took to Twitter to celebrate West Ham’s birthday, the fans pounced and brought heavy criticism with them.
