West Ham United is looking forward to welcoming 2000 of their eternally disgruntled supporters back to London Stadium for the first time since March when the Hammers host Manchester United tomorrow. With all 32 boroughs of London deemed Tier 2 areas, up to 2000 West Ham fans will be able to resume protesting about something or other from the comfort of the Billy Bonds Stand lower tier.
It’s almost 9 months since a rendition of ‘Dildo Brothers Out’ echoed around the former Olympic venue and Joint-Chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold are itching for the fans return.
“We have greatly missed being heckled and booed by a baying mob of East Londoners on match days, and we are hugely looking forward to having them back”, Gold told Paddy Power News. “If we’re to abandon our impressive start to the season and begin our descent down the table, It’s imperative London Stadium becomes a cauldron of negativity once again”, added the 84-yr-old.
“It’s been frustrating to see the lads express themselves so freely on the pitch since games have been played behind closed doors”, said his long-term business partner David Sullivan.
I’m sure they can’t wait to be berated by 2,000 people when they misplace a pass on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Hammers boss Moyes is equally as enthused about the return of fans to London Stadium this weekend.
“Aye, it’s great to have them back. I hav’nae heard ‘Moyes Out’ ringing in my lugs since March”, grimaced the Scot. “London Stadium has such a special atmosphere on match days. It can’t describe the feeling I get while being called all the b**tards under the sun while a series of bubbles pop on my ginger head’, added the 57-year-old.
In other news, Manchester boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Paddy Power News he was looking forward to seeing supporters in London Stadium.
“When I hear that first chant of ‘You’re getting sacked in the morning’, I know it will be an emotional moment for me”, gulped the Norwegian.
