Wolves have managed to receive an apology from FA Cup opponents Chorley after an angry response to the non league side’s West Brom post.
The National League North outfit was trying to be funny, with a tongue in cheek tweet which a bitter taste with Wolves fans on Monday.
Wolves are set to face Chorley in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup on Friday night in a repeat of the 1986 clash which saw the West Midlands side lose.
The Lancashire-based club have had one hell of a cup run, knocking out a young Derby County side to earn a money-spinning clash with the Premier League side who are in worrying form.
Chorley have already beaten Gateshead (2-1), York City (1-0), Wigan Athletic (3-2) as well as Peterborough (2-1).
In a bid to raise extra funds in what are very tough times for teams at non league level, they have done what Marine did against Tottenham in setting up a service which allows both team’s supporters to buy virtual tickets for the game which will take place at Victory Park.
Whilst a number of the Wolves fans were buying tickets, which are still available on Chorley’s website, the minnows posted a tweet which has now led to a boycott.
Chorley wrote: “Let’s hope for the same celebrations on Friday night in the FA Cup, last non league team in the cup, against your local rivals, who are you going to support?”
User Jason Wheeler replied: “Can your players boing – boing – at the final whistle if you do?”
Wolves fans always sing ‘boing boing Baggies’ in reference to West Brom being a yo yo club if you like.
Chorley replied: “If you and the rest of us baggies fans get behind us, and help us with the virtual tickets, I’ll get all the lads boing boing at the final whistle, after Adele of course.”
A tirade of anger come from the Wolverhampton Wanderers fanbase and now they’ve stopped buying virtual tickets in protest.
It took a little while but Chorley have since deleted the tweets and offered an apology.
They wrote: It has be brought to our attention a tweet sent from our account about virtual tickets have been inadvertedly angered many Wolves fans.
“The tweet has since been deleted and we unreservedly apologise.
“We’re looking forward to Friday & building on our positive relationship with Wolves.”
Talk about feeling awkward.
Fans reacted as Wolves receive an apology from Chorley after the angry response to that West Brom post…
Mate what have you started 😂 I’d say the club where going to earn some decent money off our fan base buying virtual tickets until their Twitter admin agreed to boing. Going to rub a lot of wolves fans up the wrong way so close to a derby loss and probably cost them thousands 🙈
