Hammers Taunt Boro Fans with Strange Dance

Don’t ask me why, but there was a scene during the West Ham against Middlesbrough match this past weekend that I can’t get out of my head.

It wasn’t an on-the-pitch incident, despite the entertaining football that West Ham showed and Tucay’s continuous attempts for Middlesbrough.

Instead it was after Tucay missed a glorious chance to score for a goal for Boro and the ball skimmed past the far post. Then, the camera showed a scene from the crowd where there was a small group of West Ham fans taunting the Boro fans. It seemed more like a bit of choreography than a spontaneous act.

What was burned in my retina was the sight of one overweight Hammers fan dressed in black with his arms folded across his chest, leaning back and doing some sort of strange shimmy in a devilish manner while three to four of his mates behind him did a choreographed routine with their hands slicing the air in front of them as if they were cutting blades of grass.

Was I imagining this or did anyone else see it?

    “the fact that shiteborough couldn’t get a shot on target”?

    Could have sworn that Middlesbrough had something like 12 shots on target to West Ham’s 7.

    I think the point was the ball was heading slowly towards, then over, the by-line – wide of the goal. It looked more like a cricket ball bobbling along for 4, than a well placed shot that would have scored.

    Hence the umpire-like signal for “4”

    I tried to watch this match, but I fell back asleep.

    There was another similarly amusing incident in the Chelsea-Blackburn match. When they were showing Samba being treated after getting kicked in the head, an overweight Chelsea fan gets a cell phone from his friend.

    He answers his phone, and his friend obviously alerts him to the fact that he is on television. He looks toward the camera, lifts up his shirt to show some less than finely toned hairy man-boobs, smiles, lifts up his shirt again, and then hangs up the phone looking quite pleased with himself.

    It was in reference to the 20/20 cricket on this weekend, and the fact that shiteborough couldn’t get a shot on target. Tuncay might as well take up cricket.

    Bet the northern wife beaters take this up next. You’ll see more of it on MOTD when fuckin Man utd or Liverpool play.

    It was the ‘wide ball’ signal a Cricket umpire gives, a rather clever visual taunt at Tungay missing an open goal.

    I noticed this too…Looked like a cricket umpire’s signal for a ‘four’.

    Don’t really get it though.
