Suffice it to say, it's not been a particularly fun season for West Ham.
It all got a little bit too much for one young fan who travelled up to the City Ground to watch Nottingham Forest demolish the Hammers 3-0 in the FA Cup over the weekend, and he was captured whimpering on national television.
The poor kid now has something to cheer him up, though, as the club extended an offer to him via their official website:
Everyone at West Ham United shares this young man's disappointment and are grateful for the large numbers of fans that made the trip to the City Ground.
To show the Club's appreciation for the travelling Claret and Blue army, the Board, manager and captain would like to offer this young fan and his family a chance to watch an upcoming fixture at the Boleyn Ground from the Directors' Box.
The crying kid has inspired us to trawl the archives for other tearful fans, most of whom were not lucky enough to get such a generous offer from their clubs...
