West Ham stewards couldn't cope; David Sullivan hit by coin - Brooking

West Ham United's Mark Noble clashes with a fan who has invaded the pitch

West Ham United's Mark Noble clashes with a fan who has invaded the pitch

Former West Ham midfielder Sir Trevor Brooking insists the Hammers will be relegated should the toxic climate witnessed during their Premier League defeat to Burnley on Saturday reappear during their final five home games of the season.

Sugar is pals with the pair and employs West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady on BBC show The Apprentice. I am not saying it's all the West Ham fans.

Awful actions by a minority of fans at @WestHamUtd.

Noble said: "It is hard for me personally because I am a West Ham fan myself and the results affect me more than anyone else".

West Ham captain Mark Noble tussled with one intruder, shoving him to the ground, while another supporter ran on to the field with the corner flag and attempted to plant it in the centre circle.

While Noble, who received a torrent of abuse from supporters, engaged in a war of words with the invaders, much of the criticism was aimed at owners David Gold and David Sullivan who had coins thrown in their direction before the full-time whistle.

The FA, police and Premier League have launched investigations into the pitch invasions and fan protests that made Saturday a day of chaos.

"To be honest, especially for us if we go a goal down at home it has been tough".

Meanwhile, Moyes has issued a rallying cry to his players after their abject defeat to the Clarets - calling on his side to stick together and turn their form around as they prepare to enter what is set to be an enthralling relegation battle at the bottom of the table. Get some points and stay in the league and make some decisions in the summer.

"If I never play for the club again I am still going to feel the way that I feel about it just because I am born and bred here".

"It's a good win for us but it was disappointing to see the crowd reacting like that". Sean Dyche's side took the lead after Ashley Barnes netted a stunning strike midway through the first half. It was a awful, frightening scene and in the end, quite rightly, the West Ham staff coaxed people back into the boardroom before the final whistle because everybody was absolutely devastated by what might have happened.

"I think with that situation the mum was ushering them away so we got them over the barrier and I think they had the time of their lives sat on the bench with us".
