Apart from abuse at Glenn Roeder, of course. But that was because of times gone by when he was manager at Upton Park … when the fella had a brain tumour and was fighting for his life.

Roeder: ‘I apologise if I have upset the West Ham crowd and I obviously did. I did nothing more than any other opposing manager would do when his own supporters are cheering his name.

‘Our supporters are the best in the country. They travel everywhere and are starved of success. They carried on singing my name and I carried on waving to them.

‘I will put my reputation on the line – that Glenn Roeder has never been involved in causing any trouble. I’m not an excitable person. It was completely unintentional.’
