Hammers fans fed up with owners

Fans are fed up with how West Ham has been run for the last decade under the trio.

Another protest was planned before next month’s home game against Burnley.

That was before the Premier League shut down until April 4th at the earliest along with most of the sporting calendar.

But with the latest government advice and the fact he virus not due to peak for another 12-14 weeks, the restart date looks highly unlikely.

Pandemic can’t stop supporters getting message across

It seems disaffected West Ham fans will not be swayed from their stance against the owners by the pandemic.

That’s if a new video doing the rounds on social media is anything to go by.

Heartwarming videos showing Italians gathering on balconies to sing songs and play music together have been going viral.

And Twitter account West Ham Latest has dubbed one of them with West Ham fans singing their protest song to the tune of Oasis hit Stop Crying Your Heart Out.

The song replaces the word crying with lying.

You took our home, you gave it away, you stole all our money, so you could get paid, we want you to leave, so just go today, stop lying your heart out

“Here’s another video… truly heartwarming,” West Ham Latest said alongside the video on Twitter.
