West Ham lose control as pitch invasions leave club facing sanctions

West Ham lose control as pitch invasions leave club facing sanctions

The Football Association has provided West Ham United until the end of the week to explain what happened at the London Stadium during their clash with Burnley.

West Ham's home defeat to Burnley was interrupted by four pitch invasions.

Roberts wrote on Twitter: "At least you will be able to see the football".

There is concern within West Ham's playing squad that the toxic atmosphere will harm their relegation fight, moreover.

The Hammers are now in the thick of a relegation battle in the Premier League and sit just three points above the drop zone.

West Ham are not issuing any statements at this time, but one source said supporter services took the decision they thought was right at the time, since there was the suggestion of criminal activity.

"The club are obviously going to have to look at things with the local police and make sure that trained stewards and police are in place - you're nearly looking at it and saying, "this is out of control", Brooking said.

Although the identities of the supporter and individual responsible for the threats are not being revealed for reasons of safety, The Independent has information that shows West Ham were made aware of this person making threats on 16 February, three days before representatives of the Real WHF went to a meeting involving vice-chairman Baroness Karren Brady and various other supporters' groups on 19 February as the threat of a protest march hung over the club.

"There weren't sufficient stewards and they couldn't really cope with what was sometimes going back to the bad old days of 25 years ago", he told BBC Five Live. Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, condemned the trouble on Monday and called for an investigation. The LLDC said it was looking to strengthen security and would welcome financial assistance from the club.

Jordan believes if they are to remain in the Premier League, they have to stop blaming the stadium.

If there hadn't been that neutral area between where the directors were sitting in the front row and the 300-400 - that's only an estimate by me - irate fans who were shouting at them, pointing at them and throwing things, I think someone could have been seriously hurt, in addition to that coin which was thrown at David Sullivan. Obviously, the police were not inside the stadium at this point. West Ham do not play at home again until Southampton visit at the end of the month after the global break. We shouldn't run away with the idea that 50,000 people were tearing towards the directors' box.
