What should be an evening of merriment and joy has kicked off in the most tasteless fashion possible for West Ham United. The club were hoping to bow out in style at the Boleyn Ground but events prior to the kick-off of their match against Manchester United look like they may overshadow what happens on the pitch.
United’s team bus was treated to a welcome from a group of thugs straight out of Green Street, pelting bottles at its windows and smashing the tinted glass that covers its windows.
Police kept guard of the bus but had their hands full. Look at the disgraceful scenes in the video below.
