Many West Ham fans were dealt a blow with the news on Sunday that the match against Manchester City was postponed due to bad weather conditions.
However, it was not a disastrous day as relegation rivals Bournemouth lost at Sheffield United while the rearranged fixture could work in their favour due to City’s hectic fixture schedule. Indeed, perhaps fatigue may give the Hammers a greater chance of getting something from their visit to the Etihad, particularly if they are roared on with the same level of vocal away support as a weekend game would attract.
Some recognise the act as a generous offer and have praised the decision as a result, but others are focusing instead on the hardship of those who travelled only to see no match and want financial compensation for their travails.
Will West Ham go into free-fall if they get relegated?
Here is some of the reaction to the news.

What do you make of the gesture from the board West Ham fans? Is it a nice idea or has the damage already been done…
