The Times reported last week that Premier League clubs are considering pumping fake noise into their stadiums if games are to be played behind closed doors in an effort to improve the match-day experience for players and fans watching at home. And some West Ham fans took the opportunity to take a cheeky dig at Tottenham.

Premier League has been postponed for the last six weeks due to the current global health crisis.
And as things stand, it could be a long time before action resumes.
One of the potential options for a return to action is to have the games played behind closed doors.
The atmospheres at the stadiums would obviously suffer because of this.
Drastic plan to improve behind closed doors action
But the Times claim that Premier League clubs are considering manufacturing noise of the fans in order to help with that problem.
Tottenham have been accused by rivals fans of creating an artificial atmosphere with drum beats in the past (The Telegraph).
In truth, West Ham United’s home ground – the London Stadium, could do with some artificial noise.
The Hammers’ home for the last three-and-a-half years is nothing like Upton Park in terms of atmosphere.
In spite of that fact, some West Ham fans couldn’t resist the chance to take a cheeky swipe at their bitter rivals Tottenham after the Times’ report…
Tottenham would be used to this then?
