Tweets of the Week: West Ham fans not impressed with booing after Palace stalemate

Hammers supporters angered by minority of fans at final whistle

West Ham fans discuss all things Hammers with our correspondent Nathaniel John.

Join in the discussion on Twitter @Nathaniel_John This week, Hammers fans react to their side’s goalless draw with Crystal Palace and the subsequent booing that was heard at the full-time whistle.

It was a few idiots booing at the end who have nothing better to do. We all left the ground unhappy, but 99 per cent of the real fans didn’t boo. – @DasFraggle

It was a poor first-half performance and result, but the booing was ridiculous. We are still in a really good position and we’re on a good run of form. – @KwamsMoriarty

It is a shame about the goalless draw, but a clean sheet and one point is better than a loss. The fans should not boo, we are still in a great position. – @ClaireG71

With a squad of West Ham’s size, it is up to Big Sam to pick the fittest XI. Carlton Cole should have started. – @justinallen1976

We looked tired from the start, I would have played Lansbury instead of Collison and given Baldock a run out. At home we must play two up front. – @stevetiley47

If fatigue was a factor then we are screwed with double the amount of fixtures in March compared with February. – @bab_whu

It was up to Big Sam to rotate, he probably should’ve known that we would be leggy. But we are a point more towards our target. – @loubeatles

The main reason we were poor was because we kept lumping the ball to a small striker, who then lost the ball resulting in us inviting pressure. In the second half we gave the striker some support and kept the ball on the floor and improved. We dominated and were unlucky not to nick the win. – @MarkWHUFC

The fans had no right to boo players off. We were top of the league at that moment in time, and league-winning football doesn’t deserved to be booed! – @johngirling1

It is pathetic that the fans booed the team. We have come a long way, and we need to remember that we are not Barcelona quite yet. – @jimmyhammer79

I couldn’t believe West Ham fans were booing to be honest. I know it wasn’t a fantastic performance, but you should never boo your own team. – @djw21bsl

It was disappointing but to boo a team for drawing after a decent second-half performance was wrong. – @AdamPlom

The last time we heard booing was at Bristol City at home. That draw was part of a run of six wins and a draw. The real fans would not boo. – @dan_whu
