West Ham fans voiced their displeasure after Slaven Bilic was charged by the FA for improper conduct following his touchline antics against West Brom on Saturday.
The Hammers dropped two points in the dying moments of the game when Gareth McAuley headed in an equaliser to make the score 2-2.
Bilic was furious after referee Michael Olivier awarded West Brom a throw-in during the build-up to the last gasp goal.
He proceeded to throw a TV microphone before furiously remonstrating with Olivier – which led to him being sent off.
The FA charged Bilic with improper conduct on Monday evening, which could lead to him serving a touchline ban, and supporters of West Ham were less than pleased.
Here is a collection of their tweets:
do something about the terrible decisions. Refs get off free for their crap performances!

Assistant manager Nikola Jurgcevic was also charged by the FA for his protests in the 19th minute after Sofiane Feghouli’s goal was disallowed.
Both Bilic and his assistant have until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge and could both be handed fines and a touchline ban if the FA find them guilty.
West Ham face a long wait before their next fixture which is against Watford on February 25. Bilic’s side are currently 10th in the Premier League, two points ahead of Southampton.
