A 27-year-old woman had to be led from The Blind Beggar public house in Whitechapel, East London, in disgrace on Saturday afternoon after voicing an opinion on the tactics being employed by West Ham United boss, David Moyes, during the team’s 3-1 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion.
Tracy Dell, an accounts manager, spoke out of turn after watching The Hammers concede a third goal in the 2nd half on the pub’s television.
According to witness, Ms Dell became agitated at this point and impertinently opined loudly that the side was showing a lack of cohesion at the back and that the 2 fullbacks should be given free reign to bomb on down the flanks and get a few crosses in.
At this point, the landlord intervened and escorted Ms Dell from the premises amid boos and catcalls.
The match finished 3-1 to Brighton, a bitter blow for relegation-threatened West Ham’s hopes for survival in the top flight.
In the after TV match studio analysis, veteran soccer pundit, Mark Lawrenson, claimed that The Hammers would have won the game comfortably if they’d had a bit more cohesion at the back and had given the fullbacks free reign to bomb on down the flanks and get a few crosses in.
