Fans plot protest ahead of Liverpool vs West Ham Premier League clash

West Ham fans are plotting a protest against the club's owners ahead of their Premier League clash with Liverpool on Monday.

The Hammers travel to Anfield in desperate need of points as they sit inside the bottom three in the table.

Owners David Gold and David Sullivan, and vice-chairman Karren Brady have faced backlash from sections of the West Ham fans over their handling of club affairs.

And the supporters are now set to make their latest stand against the ownership, by releasing black balloons inside the stadium.

But less Hammers fans will be participating than first hoped, due to the club's away ticket allocation being reduced from 3,000 to 1,800.

Sullivan claims the decision not to request their full allocation is down to a lack of demand, though Hammers fans remain unconvinced.

The Mail report Sullivan wrote to independent fans group Hammers United stating if the fans could cover the cost of the extra 1,200 tickets in the form of a bond, the club would request them.

Fans have also been urged to bring banners to the match opposing the current regime.

It is not the first time West Ham fans have protested against the board, who have received a hostile reception ever since they left former stadium Upton Park to move into their new home in Stratford.

Another protest is planned for the weekend's visit of Southampton to the London Stadium.

West Ham boss David Moyes was asked about his dealings with the board, and stated the "grass isn't always greener".

"I've found them very good, that might sound strange for someone who was let go by them a year and a half ago," Moyes said last month.
