They were a lot more creative than the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Earlier today, West Ham sent out a rather innocuous Tweet asking the Hammers faithful to post some of their best efforts to celebrate National Poetry Day.
However, whilst the social media boss at West Ham might have thought better of the West Ham fans – our landlord knew that this was only going to go south.
In an unsurprising turn of events, the West Ham fans reacted to the Tweet in the only way that football fans know how – by taking out their frustrations on their football team.
See the original Tweet below, and then revel in some of the hilarious responses by the West Ham fans…

Some of the Tweets were pretty good…
It was Rnd 1 15/16
Not much EPL had I seen
I picked the Hammers by feel
They won the game 2 Nil
And now they are my fav team ⚒

Roses are claret, violets are blue, we need fit forwards, especially Ayew!

Some were very near the mark…
Brady took the clubs soul
So we could play in a soulless bowl

Roses are red,
In London's new stadium,
West Ham fans are fighting.#NationalPoetryDay

But most of them were just awful…
Roses are red
Violets make sense
This rhyme is rubbish
And so's our goal difference #NationalPoetryDay

Form has been on the floor. So it's time get to this problem's core. Bring back our heart and soul, bring back our Carlton Cole!

What were West Ham thinking? Of course this was only going to end one way!
Football fans online are often a harsh bunch, and the West Ham fans in the Tavern are certainly no different.
