Beeb In A Hurry To Bust Hammers

West Ham have banned a supporter for life after a racist video was posted on social media, the club moved quickly to ban the supporter in question with a spokesperson saying the club was made aware of "disgusting" footage of a fan making racist remarks to away fans at London Stadium early last season. "The club handed evidence to the police and banned an individual for life from our stadium. No place for it at our club," said the Hammers on Twitter, we have a "zero tolerance of abhorrent behaviour."

"Equality and diversity is at the heart of the football club and we are committed to continue ensuring that everyone who enters London Stadium is free to enjoy watching their team play football in an inclusive environment." Correct and admirable words, there is little more the club can do other than issue a life time's ban, the person in question will suffer, but no where near as much as the club itself.

Mindless acts of racism have a negative collateral effect on the club, this was evident today as the BBC were so quick to criticise West Ham that they made an error in their cutting and pasting of the 'dirt' they had on file relating to the Hammers. Here is how part 2 of the BBC's article began .................ormer Director of Player Recruitment Tony Henry was sacked in February 2018 after racist comments made in an interview with the Daily Mail regarding Diafra Sakho and other players of African origin were revealed. NOTE the missing F from former Director!

The article continues .......In November of the same year a youth team coach was forced to undertake anti-discrimination classes after it was found that he had brought the club into disrepute and breached its social media policy. In March 2019 vice chair Karren Brady wrote to the London Assembly in order to deny reports that the club had an affiliation with the Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA), after a member of the Official Supporters' Board (OSB) left the group by mutual consent. And in May another member of the OSB was reported to have posted images of a racist and misogynistic nature on social media. The member in question is believed to have retained their position on the OSB.

All right minded fans abhor racism and all it's connected activities, West Ham United appear to be doing their very best to stamp out all types of anti-social and racist attitudes and should be commended for that achievement rather than receiving a cheap shot from the Beeb, fans shouldn't really be surprised given the BBC's one sided grudging lack of acknowledgement of Hammers 2-0 victory over Manchester United at the London Stadium on Sunday. - Ed
