West Ham troll Liverpool with Beatles track at London Stadium

West Ham troll Liverpool with Beatles track at London Stadium

Travelling fans of the Merseyside outfit had a rather unpleasant outing at West Ham on Sunday.

Aside from the disappointment of watching their side falter, these supporters were recipients of cheeky mockery at the hands of the staff operating the stereo over at the London Stadium, presumably fans of the hosts who were cock-a-hoop following the result of the clash.

The soaring Hammers moved to the 3rd spot on the league table with a phenomenal 3-2 victory, ending the stellar 25-match unbeaten streak of Jürgen Klopp’s men.

As the referee’s whistle brought the action-packed encounter to a close, in the most bizarre turn of events, Beatles’ classic “Twist and Shout” could be heard blasting from the speakers, echoing around the stadium.  

It’s no secret that Liverpool Football Club and the iconic boy-band Beatles form the heart of the city of Liverpool. The two groups are about as closely associated with this maritime city of England, as are the pyramids to the Egyptian deserts.

Thus, playing the said track would have certainly struck a nerve amongst the Reds’ fanbase, having met with such a savage treatment in opposition territory.     

The West Ham fans certainly enjoyed their club rubbing the salt in Liverpool’s wounds –
