West Ham United have announced a new scheme for signing into the club online and the timing of it is rather unfortunate for those wanting it to go down well.
The new fan account system will allow supporters to access all the West Ham websites with one username and password and goes live at the end of this week.
But, unsurprisingly, many fans were only in the mood to mock after the announcement, with the bulk of the jokes focussed on the Cameron Robson incident.
One supporter asked what would happen if he signed in whilst wearing the same shirt as Robson, and others questioned whether bans will be handed out for not using it.
You can see those comments and the best of the rest of the banter, below…

Will it make it easier to ban supporters calling out the mismanagement of the club? #GSBOUT

If I refuse to list my ST on the exchange will I be banned from Stratford?

Do you need a VPN to access it like they would in North Korea because that’s where our owners think we are
