Hammers match against Wolves should not have been called off
West Ham’s game against Wolves last weekend was wrongly called after an incorrect weather forecast. The match was postponed on Saturday when more snow was predicted for Sunday. But the snow did not arrive and the area around Upton Park was virtually clear of snow and ice by the scheduled kick-off time.
There were suspicions that the injury-hit Hammers were more than happy to have the game called off. But they will not face investigation by the Premier League after written submissions from the police and council confirming that they had concerns about the safety of supporters given the weather forecast and a lack of resources to grit the road.
