Sullivan thanks fans

David Sullivan has thanked the West Ham fans who attended yesterday's 3-0 demolition of Tottteham at White Hart Lane.

West Ham's co-owner, who was the subject of an extensive KUMB.com Q&A last month took the time to write to the supporters for their good behaviour during the game, which West Ham won 3-0 courtesy of goals from Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison.

"It was a truly memorable afternoon for West Ham United at White Hart Lane on Sunday and I want to personally thank our fans for the important role they played in it," wrote Sullivan. "While Sam Allardyce's tactics and the players will rightly be praised for an absolutely outstanding 3-0 win at our local rivals, our fans made sure that today's headlines were all about football rather than events in the stands.

"On Sunday morning, I wrote an open letter to supporters attending the game to remind them they would be acting as ambassadors for our Club. As expected, they did not let us down. From the first minute to the last, the 3,000-strong Claret and Blue Army out sang their hosts and made the match feel like a home game. The way they got behind the team was up there with the best I have seen in my 20 years in football.

"Crucially, though, they also showed respect for the occasion and understanding of the magnifying glass that was on them in the build-up to the game. By the time the final whistle blew, a full-blown cockney knees-up was underway in the away end and boy did they deserve it."
