West Ham United fans just watched their team bomb out of the FA Cup 5-0 to Championship side Nottingham Forest and then lose the first leg of their League Cup semi-final 6-0 at Manchester City, and now, they have a fresh insult in the form of exorbitant ticket prices.

Yes, if you're wildly optimistic and think the Hammers can put seven past City Jan. 21and if you have £42 burning a hole in your pocketyou can pick up game tickets.

Of course, if you think the tie is over and that manager Sam Allardyce is likely to play a shadow side so he can concentrate on hauling the team out of the relegation zone in the Premier League, you might find £42 a bit pricey.

West Ham have recently had good PR when it comes to tickets, however: When a child was spotted crying in the crowd during the Hammer's loss at Forest, the board stepped in and offered him complimentary tickets in the directors' box to a future game. 

Could they have made a similar goodwill gesture to fans in this case as well?
