West Ham Fans Rage At Club's Reported Insult To Legend James Collins

West Ham Fans Rage At Club's Reported Insult To Legend James Collins

Over the last 15 years or so, few clubs have been as consistently dysfunctional as West Ham. They were at it again this week, firing David Moyes in spite of the Scot's admirable job in staving off relegation amid ridiculous circumstances. As to who they'll appoint next is anyone's guess and the club are currently being used by Rafa Benitez to put the squeeze on Mike Ashley at Newcastle.

In further evidence that the club really can't do anything, TalkSPORT are reporting today that club legend James Collins has been released from the club after 11 years of service. What really jars is the report that they told him by email.

Collins joined West Ham in 2005 and has been there since, bar a three-year spell at Aston Villa from '09 to 2012. He has made more than 200 appearances for the club, and West Ham's final game of the season was marked with chants calling on the board to offer Collins, 34, a new contract. Collins ended that game in tears.

That this hasn't happened, and the club reportedly couldn't tell him face to face that he was off, has incensed Hammers supporters.

We're just surprised that Karren Brady didn't announce Collins' departure in her Sun column.
