Fupped West Ham fans will organize a protest tonight against the owners of the club in Anfield – although they are less in number then hoped.
The Hammers assignment has dropped to 1,800 of the usual 3,000. It is the first game this season for which the club has asked for their full allocation.
That has prevented supporters from suspecting an additional intention by the future powers.

Sports diary can also reveal that, following a complaint, co-owner David Sullivan wrote to independent fans & group Hammers United and told them if they could offer a deposit for the additional 1200 tickets (the small issue of £ 36,000 that would be returned if the tickets were sold), then West Ham – in the top 20 of & # 39; the world's richest clubs – would ask for it. How generous.
Fans in the far corner will release black balloons and organizers have asked those who bring them to ensure that they are biodegradable.
Insiders of the club insist that the reduced allocation is purely to demand, deny that it has everything to do with the protest and say that return has been made available. The West Ham players will wear T-shirts in the warm-up, a tribute to Bobby Moore, 27 years from the day he died.

The 49-year-old was fired by the BBC after his outburst, which campaign group Kick It Out as & # 39; completely unacceptable & # 39; Was considered. Ramage has since apologized.
Days later, an event combined with Show Racism The red card was staged at the club's stadium. Given that workshops were held on & # 39; critical thinking & # 39; and & # 39; unconscious bias & # 39 ;, it might be worth attending Ramage.
