West Ham chief Brady grateful to fans for keeping calm during Southampton rout

West Ham chief Karren Brady is grateful to home fans for staying calm during defeat to Southampton.

Life hasn't been easy for the club as Slaven Bilic's find themselves in 18th place after just three points from their first six league games, with centre-back Angelo Ogbonna admitting that the players have found the fans' expectations difficult to manage.

Brady said via the club's website: "I am delighted that the game passed without any major incidents on Sunday and it shows the hard work that has been put in place by our stakeholders and everyone at the club.

"Despite the disappointing result on the pitch, our fans came together and stayed united as we look to improve the matchday experience for everyone at London Stadium.

“We listened to the feedback of our fans and identified areas that needed to be addressed, including the segregation of supporters and relocation of some of our fans, but we will not stop there and will continue to make more improvements every day.

"We must stress that the vast majority of the more than 300,000 supporters who have attended a game at the Stadium since August have supported the team exceptionally and behaved impeccably.

"I want to thank everyone of them for their continued support through some difficult results, and can assure them that they will continue to see positive changes taking place at London Stadium at every home game."
