West Ham United may be ordered to play behind closed doors as part of the punishment for the crowd riot in their Carling Cup win over Millwall.

The People says the FA will formally charge both clubs towards the end of the week and have the jurisdiction to hit both hard. West Ham, as the home side, will take the lion's share of the blame.

And they face the threat of a ban on all supporters for one game.

The FA could, instead, choose to impose hefty fines on both clubs and warn them about their future conduct.
