THE TALLY of West Ham fans banned for life from Upton Park is set to top the 100 mark after a new set of 67 pictures was published, writes DAVE EVANS.

This latest set of pictures, published on the West Ham website, will not be the last either.

The Metropolitan Police are still studying the CCTV footage from the game and the feeling is that if you were on the pitch, then you will be on one of the lists of pictures.

A spokesman for the Football Association confirmed that an initial direction hearing may well be confirmed in the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime, West Ham are keen to do anything they can to appease the police and the FA.
