Liverpool fans will fly a West Ham United flag in the Kop when the two sides meet live on Sky Sports on February 24th.

Angry West Ham fans have been protesting against David Sullivan and David Gold as they are deeply unhappy with the way the duo have run the club over the last decade.

Hammers supporters want Sullivan and Gold to sell up for a litany of reasons.

A growing group of disaffected West Ham fans named Hammers United held a protest ahead of the Everton game last month.

And they will release black balloons at Anfield in another public display of their feelings towards Sullivan and Gold before a further protest ahead of the home game against Southampton.

One of the catchlines of the Hammers United campaign is the slogan ‘GSB OUT’ – aimed at Gold Sullivan and Karren Brady.

Supporters have not been able to take the flags into home games and a fan who wore a GSB OUT t-shirt while he was flag-bearing at the London Stadium has been banned for the season by Sullivan and Gold.

The duo also threatened legal action against Sky’s Sunday Supplement over comments made in a segment that was heavily critical of their West Ham tenure.

Liverpool fans unite with West Ham to fly flag in Kop

That prompted a lengthy apology which has only served to cast the spotlight further on the way Sullivan and Gold run the club (Daily Mail).

Now, in what is a somewhat unprecedented move, Liverpool fans have united with their West Ham counterparts to fly a flag in the Kop, it has been claimed.

In exchange protesting West Ham fans will donate to a local foodbank in Liverpool.

“What a message this will send,” Hammers United posted on Twitter in response to speculation that Liverpool fans will be flying the protest flag.

“Anyone travelling please donate if you can.”

 

The gesture was met with approval by many fans on the thread.

Here are a selection of comments from fans:
