West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to bemoan the fact that Lord Alan Sugar made a joke about them during last night’s edition of The Apprentice. Which didn’t go down well with his ‘advisor’ Karren Brady.
The former Tottenham chairman made a clever jibe following a task in which the contestants had to interior decorate a hotel room at the lavish Stoke Park Hotel.
When the female team held back on spending their budget on furniture and accessories, Sugar quipped: “You didn’t spend enough money, I think West Ham’s trophy room has got more in it”
This was enough to send the West Ham fans into a furore as they tried to fire back at Sugar and question Tottenham’s trophy success in return.
Here’s a selection of Tweets from the bitter West Ham fans.

@Lord_Sugar West Ham's trophy cabinet may be more sparse than your glamorous Spurs space. Lots of effort and history has made the space. ⚒️

Funny how a Tottenham man sugar cusses a west ham girl Brady on West Ham’s lack of trophies. Spurs have won nothing in 10 years
