Behave yourself: West Ham top fans' table

Filed: Friday, 11th October 2013
By: Staff Writer

A Barclays Premier League survey to find the nations' most well-behaved fans is currently topped by West Ham.

Taking into account matches played up to and including 30th September, the West Ham faithful have received an average score of 9.17 per game from an independent auditor for their exemplary behaviour both home and away this season.

West Ham's closest challengers in the table are Sunderland in second place with an average of 9.00, whilst Liverpool are currently third with 8.67. United's nearest London rivals are Tottenham, who are down in seventh place with an average of 8.33.

The least well-behaved supporters so far this season, according to the survey, are those from Aston Villa and Hull - whilst London clubs Fulham, Chelsea and Arsenal also occupy places at the bottom end of the table.

A Club source told KUMB.com: "We are delighted to see the Claret and Blue Army’s excellent support has been recognised in this table.

"We have another big game coming up against Manchester City next Saturday, which will give them another chance to show just how good they are in front of a global TV audience of millions."

According to the Premier League's 'Fair Play' rules, each team begins a match with five points to which an additional five can be added for (acceptable) verbal support and recognition of good play by opposition players.

Conversely, a maximum of five points may be deducted for persistent foul and abusive language, persistent abuse of officials plus aggresive and threatening conduct towards opposition fans.
