I SAID last week that fans need to be treated better with ticket prices and the like, but we shouldn’t be seeing scenes like we did at West Ham on Saturday.

A handful of them got onto the pitch and confronted players with Hammers skipper Mark Noble fighting with a fan on the pitch before stewards and his teammates finally intervened.

They shouldn’t be on the pitch, from what I’ve read and heard about the incident. If they’re endangering the safety of the players on the pitch, it’s not on. There’s other ways to do it – I’ve heard they’ve harassed the chairmen, who are both getting on a little bit with David Gold in his 80s.

Sir Trevor Brooking, who was left in the Director's Box on his own, said a coin narrowly missed David Sullivan and also added that the atmosphere at the London Stadium could contribute to West Ham going down.

I can understand where the fans are coming from. They want money made being put back into the club but they’ve got not excuse in behaving like that.

It’s possible they should have demonstrated when they first moved but they probably thought it was good for the club.

They were told that once they had the stadium and everything was going right, they would have money for big transfers but the recruitment hasn’t been great.

The owners are wealthy people so I think fans are reacting to that. They’re not bringing the correct calibre of player in and they’ve got a manager on a six-month contract when he took over when David Moyes was appointed to take over from the sacked Slaven Bilic.

There’s no stability, it’s all short-term. Fans see that as business people taking money out of the club and they don’t want to see that at all.

But to worry players? On one hand they are right to be frustrated but they can’t be showing it that way. We've also seen pictures of fighting in the stands, with the pitch invaders receiving some nasty blows.

There was also pictures of young West Ham fans sat in the safety of the Burnley dug-out after defender Phil Bardsley brought them in there.

It’s not right to see that sort of behaviour in English football.
