West Ham headlines about football 'not events in stands'

West Ham's co-chairman David Sullivan issued a statement this afternoon praising the behaviour of fans:

While Sam Allardyce's tactics and the players will rightly be praised for an absolutely outstanding 3-0 win at our local rivals, our fans made sure that today's headlines were all about football rather than events in the stands.

On Sunday morning, I wrote an open letter to supporters attending the game to remind them they would be acting as ambassadors for our club. As expected, they did not let us down.
