WEST Ham’s ‘boo boys’ are working with vocal coaches on making a cheering sound, it has emerged.
Following a recent upturn in form, the team’s sizeable booing contingent has been struggling to master a suitable noise to use in the event of witnessing good play.
Speech therapist Mary Fisher said: “Boo boys are part simian, hence the limited tonal range. Even their joyful sounds are quite intimidating and jeer-like.
While losing 5-0 to a Championship team in the FA Cup was their bread and butter, acknowledging a hard-fought win over mid-table opposition requires a much greater dexterity of the epiglottis.”
Boo boy Tom Booker said: “We may be boo boys but were still human, wed love nothing more than to raise our voices in joyous song during gutsy wins over Hull and Sunderland, who wouldnt?
When you become a West Ham fan this isnt what you sign up for – recently Ive been going to a lot more student theatre and Ive even considered supporting Man United.
