The skipper shared a heart-warming video of hospital staff in a quarantined section in their protective Covid-19 clothing and other staff on the other side of a glass door joining together to sing You’ll Never Walk Alone and applaud each other – and stated that we should play the song before our first game back to show our respect for the NHS and those we lost to the virus.
The song’s connection to Liverpool should be forgotten in this instance and we should all recognise the lyrics as a great backing to those key workers who are saving lives and bringing us ever closer to showing Coronavirus the red card.
Below is a list of the best reactive Tweets to our captain from the supporters…

Good idea, but as a nurse and Hammers supporter I’d quite like a ticket to match! Haven’t been able to get one for years! ⚒

Great idea. It’s such a shame that it’s taken a national crisis for these hundreds of thousands of people to be appreciated. It’s time we stamp out the abuse they receive on a daily basis. The consequences of abuse or violence towards them should be severe
