Hammers fans voted the best

Liverpool Football Club revealed the results of an end of season poll yesterday on their official website and West Ham United fans came out on top as the Best Opposition Supporters.

The Reds fans have praised the claret and blue faithful for their great spirits during a memorable FA Cup final at the Millennium Stadium last week and for the way they mixed with the Merserysiders during the entire weekend in Cardiff.

Hammers fans collected a whopping 60% of the online voting, with the nearest contenders - Portsmouth and Real Betis - receiving 8%.
