West Ham Fans Allegedly Use Antisemitic Chants During Away Game Against Tottenham
Published November 27, 2012
LIFETIME BAN THREATENED: In London, Dyer & Rice reported West Ham promised that "fans will be banned from Upton Park for life if they are proven to have made the alleged chants" during Sunday's game. West Ham is "studying footage from the game." The incident "has also been reported to the police by the Society of Black Lawyers." Asked if he would take the issue to the police Chair Peter Herbert told Sky Sports News: "We've done so already." Tottenham "will be submitting video evidence" as part of its report to the FA. A club spokesperson said: "We are currently compiling a full report for the Football Association and shall be submitting this with all our evidence including relevant CCTV footage" (INDEPENDENT, 11/26). Also in London, Neil Gardner reported West Ham has also vowed to help Tottenham with its investigation, adding on its website: "We will examine any available evidence of such conduct thoroughly and take the appropriate action." Reports from match officials and delegates "will be assessed by the FA before England’s governing body decides on whether any action is required" (LONDON TIMES, 11/26).
