The final match at Upton Park was delayed 45 minutes as West Ham supporters outside the ground attacked Man United’s bus upon its arrival. A hailstorm of bottles and other objects showered the bus, breaking windows and halting the vehicle’s progress towards the stadium.

As this was happening, the players on the bus piled on top of each other away from the windows and were able to laugh at the situation while calling for their mothers.

Outside the bus, police moved in to try and control the massive crowd, providing Green Street with its Tiananmen Square moment.
