A young West Ham United supporter burst out in tears Sunday during the match between his club and Nottingham Forest, as the Championship side thrashed the Hammers 5-0 at the City Ground.
The young boy, who was in the away section with fellow West Ham United supporters, broke down in tears and had to be consoled by his father after Forest went three-nil up against the Premier League club.
West Ham United’s display against Nottingham Forest was pathetic for two reasons. First, this team should be ashamed of themselves.

Even though the Hammers played several youngsters, the team should be performing better than what they did today, where they were completely outplayed by Nottingham Forest.
Second, West Ham’s display sums up everything that is wrong about the FA Cup from a Premier League perspective where club managers frankly don’t care about the tournament any more, and place a higher priority on the Premier League and, in West Ham’s case, the League Cup in which they’ll play in this week.
West Ham United should reimburse their away supporters who spent their hard-earned money to travel to Nottingham today for a Noon UK time kick-off.
Here’s the video of the young boy who cried, which sums up everything that’s wrong with the FA Cup and West Ham United today:
