There’s many reasons why the West Ham board are unpopular at the London Stadium and they’ve issued supporters with another reason this week.

It’s stated that the club only informed fan favourite James Collins he would not earn a new contract via email, disregarding his 11 years of service to the Hammers.

Rejoining the Hammers six years ago, the 34-year-old Wales international has established himself as a popular figure amongst the fans and many were keen to see him handed a new deal, with some suggesting a coaching role should be offered.

However, the club’s hierarchy seemed to think otherwise and Collins will now be searching for a new club after being informed by email last week that he would be released.

That news has not gone down well on social media, where fans flocked to criticise the board and thank Collins for his years of dedicated service to the east London side.
