Silly sausages

A Manchester United think tank have revealed how West Ham United fans were responsible for throwing a giant sausage into the disabled section at Old Trafford during the most recent meeting between the sides.

According to an unnamed Manchester Utd Disabled Supporters Association representative, who was speaking at a recent fans' forum, visiting supporters hurled a number of objects into the stand below them during West Ham's visit in April.

The game - which was won 2-1 by the hosts after Felipe Anderson's perfectly-legitimate goal was ruled out by referee Graham Scott for offside - was apparently marred by fans in the disabled section, which is situated immediately below the area reserved for visiting supporters, being hit by various objects.

As well as the giant sausage, which is thought to have originally formed part of a hot dog sold at the stadium - there are no reports of numerous fans being spotted wielding similar meat-based treats - West Ham fans stand accused of hurling "plastic clubs filled with liquid, cigarette lighters and various items of food" into the home stands.

The fans' forum was initiated following numerous complaints by fans in the affected section, which arose after a string of similar incidents throughout the 2018/19 campaign occurred. Manchester Utd are now examining alternative areas in which they can potentially house disabled fans from next season.
