The Secret Footballer...
Not a big fan of the supporters of West Ham United.


"Which team’s supporters annoyed or intimidated you the most?

TSF: “West Ham United. Without doubt, they have the most deluded fans in the Premier League. I say that because half a dozen of my friends are West Ham fans. I say to them that it is only after speaking to West Ham fans that I leave the conversation thinking: "I didn't agree with any of that."

I meet supporters from clubs up and down the country and, for the most part, I leave with something to think about. But not with West Ham fans. And when you play against West Ham, you also notice the racism that you don't hear at other clubs. The odd thing about it, though racism is racism, is that you can sometimes hear it directed at West Ham players by West Ham fans. Honestly, it is a bizarre experience.

I have a theory on this that pertains to the cameras never picking it up on live broadcasts or on highlights programmes. I write about it in my book. Yet if you were to make a TV show on racism at West Ham, you'd have more than enough material in the first 20 minutes of the match to fill a series.”

If this has been put up before, do you reckon I give a monkeys?

to be honest most people's reasoning behind Kitson being TSF is the footage of him being bundled over by Valencia, after he said the big difference between Championship and Premiership players being their physical side and that most PL players are built like Cruiserweights, before describing coming up against one on a televised game and being nearly shunted over the advertisements during a tackle.

Some Danish channel did an investigation and came up with a compelling case for TSF being Kitson.

Re: The Secret Footballer...
Danny Mills was a footballer? He certainly kept that a secret.

If I had to guess the player I'd say it's Jason Roberts based on nothing but the fact that I could hear those words coming out of his mouth. I could honestly see some of his West Ham mates giving him some grief about him thinking Wigan were as big a club as us- especially as we seemed joined at the hip back then and they usually beat us.

Wow we've come on a bit from the days when teams like Wigan and Charlton fans thought we were a match-up. Now it's Palace and Leicester!

I don't think David James would say that about us. I don't think Danny Mills can read and write.

If it IS Danny Mills then he should be sued. Not a "footballer".

I've always heard it was David James. Cos he's quite clever and that.

It could be a chant if it was only sung by 2 or 3, hard to believe it was any more than that though.

""we're the only black free team in London" could be a comment - I've probably heard similar - but it's not believable as a chant.

I hope that's the result of a fucked-up edit, Fifth

We would never sing that, especially as we were the first top flight team to have a black player

Made up bollocks.

It would be laughable if it wasn't so cringe.

Re: The Secret Footballer...
Is there anyone who's been a regular at West Ham who has not heard fat blokes calling players "Fat bastards!" or bald blokes call players "Bald bastards!" or black people call players "Black bastard!" gingers calling out gingers etc?

If someone was faultless, they'd be called a "Faultless bastad!"

Not all the racist commenst are in fact racist. Most are just the use of whatever is percieved to have a good chance of getting on a players nerves.

We are a right bunh of nervist bastads, there's no denying that.

""we're the only black free team in London"

What tune is that to? Doesn't sound very catchy

""we're the only black free team in London"

I barely missed a game back then and never heard that chant in my fucking life

No surprise as to the poster that made that up

Re: The Secret Footballer...
You are occasionally going to get some pissed up day tripper saying something stupid, but I honestly can't recall the last time I went to a West Ham game and heard racism of the like that you would hear in the 70s and early 80s.

Re: The Secret Footballer...
apart from the odd DVD chant, or Y-word stuff i've not heard any racism in years.

who is this plank??

All I can say is that his West Ham fans must be fucking idiots. All fans get excited when they start doing well and you will always get the morons who think we will win the league but West Ham fans in general and very realistic and completely un-deluded (is that a word?)

Down my local it is majority West Ham and we get on everyone else's nerves (especially when we are doing well) but if you ask any of the Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal fans they will all say if they are being honest we don't actually think we will win fuck all (at the moment).

Re: The Secret Footballer...
I remember someone in the south bank screaming ' fuck off you black cunt' followed very quickly by a sheepish ' not you George'.

Re: The Secret Footballer...
I do recall an early 90s match vs Liverpool (0-0), live on TV, where people were giving Mark Walters the old ooh ooh noises, whilst simultaneously cheering George Parris for kicking him up in the air. Very odd.

Re: The Secret Footballer...
Sounds like Jason Roberts to me!
