Sunday Supplement discuss West Ham

Filed: Sunday, 11th March 2018

The ongoing problems at West Ham United were the main point of discussion on this morning's Sunday Supplement show.

Sam Wallace (Telegraph), Jeremy Cross (Daily Star) and John Cross (Mirror) joined host Neil Ashton this morning to discuss the unruly scenes witnessed at the Olympic Stadium 24 hours earlier.

And whilst the disturbances were understandably condemned, the panel did at least display some understanding of the myriad of issues that culminated in the pitch invasions and angry scenes around the Directors' Box during yesterday's 3-0 home defeat against Burnley.

You may see what the Independent's Wallace made of the events in the following video..

West Ham are yet to comment officially on the disturbances since ordering an immediate investigation after the game on Saturday afternoon.

However former Director, manager and player Sir Trevor Brooking revealed that co-owner David Sullivan - who bore the brunt of the fans' ire - was struck by an object during the second half.

"I think a coin hit David Sullivan, his glasses," Brooking told the BBC. "I didn't see it myself but I did have that confirmed, which was part of the reason why the people in the directors' box had to go inside to save any more problems like that."
