West Ham and Tottenham were allegedly the only two Premier League clubs who wanted the season to be cancelled amidst coronavirus fears, as detailed here by Claret and Hugh, and some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
Both the Hammers and Spurs have experienced challenging campaigns thus far.
West Ham are currently sitting in 16th spot in the Premier League table, level on points with 18th placed Bournemouth.
And Tottenham are sitting in eighth spot, seven points adrift of fourth placed Chelsea.
If both teams were offered the chance to scrap the season and start again, it is obvious what their response would be.
As things stand, there will be no Premier League football for three weeks. But who knows what really is going to happen?
It seems as though coronavirus is not going anywhere, and if anything, it will only get worse.
The sensible option would be for the season to be completed, whenever that is, rather than completely cancelling it and rendering it null and void.
But West Ham and Tottenham allegedly don’t agree.
And some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the claims…
Of course we were, classic Gold + Sullivan 😂😂😂
