Losing a third consecutive Premier League game, by three goals or more was a bitter pill to swallow.
However, the disgraceful scenes that saw several pitch invasions and the crowd turn on the board causing our owners to vacate the ground for their own safety will, no doubt, have serious ramifications.
Following the disgraceful shenanigan, West Ham United issued a club statement, which read,
‘West Ham United have immediately launched a full and thorough investigation into the incidents which marred the second half of today’s match and are committed to taking decisive and appropriate action.
‘An emergency meeting has been called with all London Stadium stakeholders. There will be no further comment at this time.’
The scenes of chaos also brought a swift response from the Premier League who also issued a statement that read,
‘It is essential that everybody who plays or attends a Premier League football match can do so safely.
‘There is no place at any level of the game for what happened at the London Stadium today.
‘While the official investigation of the incidents will be carried out by the Football Association, we will be asking our own questions of West Ham United about what happened this afternoon, especially to ensure similar events never reoccur.
‘We would like to commend referee Lee Mason and his team of officials for their actions which, combined with the cooperation of players and coaching staff from both clubs, enabled the match to be completed.’
We`re under no illusion that, following the scenes yesterday, the club will face charges, it just remains to be seen how severe the punishment will be.
A sad day for those who follow West Ham United Football Club.
