The Eastender has been involved at the club for 43 years.
The national media has been full of stories of former West Ham United Director of Youth Football Tony Carr leaving the club in the last few days, with particular attention paid to his £14,000 redundancy by the likes of the Guardian, a story, if true, that has got Hammers supporters taking to Twitter to air their opinions.
Carr is a legend in East London, having been born and brought up in Bow and coming through the youth team at the Boleyn Ground when the Hammers were a club boasting the likes of Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst.

Though he never made a breakthrough with his local team, or indeed as a footballer in general, he returned to West Ham as 23-year-old to take control of the the club's youth academy.
Since then, the 65-year-old has overseen one of the most successful production lines of British footballing talent in the country, with a number of world class players emerging particularly since the 1990s.

Rio Ferdinand, Paul Ince, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, Jermain Defoe, Glen Johnson all came through on his 43-year watch, while current captain and favourite Mark Noble is another the club developed.
Which is why plenty of Hammers fans are shocked at the redundancy figure for Carr, who had been an ambassador for the past year with Terry Westley taking over the academy reins, which will be less than many squad members earn per week.
Many took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the matter, with owners David Gold and David Sullivan getting a lot of flak:
Tony Carr's work a key reason why I fell in love with football & #WHUFC. His exit a reason why modern game's crassness so insufferable— Neil Humphreys (@NeilHumphreys) July 27, 2016
It's lack of class from #WHUFC that's wound me up about Tony Carr- not the money issue. Doing it through HR and not personally is poor.— Mike Cawston (@mikecawston) July 27, 2016
This Tony Carr business is unsavoury and doesn't sit well, but calling for G&S to leave the club as a result is ridiculous. #whufc— Adam Plom (@AdamPlom) July 27, 2016
Tony Carr has brought in some of the greatest English players for some decades! So why treat him like he just signed Titus Bramble?! #WHUFC— Tom Phillips (@philzo) July 27, 2016
West Ham have dealt with the Tony Carr situation disgracefully. A great servant to the club, who has made our club, deserves better. #WHUFC— Jay Kent (@JamieLeeKent) July 27, 2016
West Ham have made legend Tony Carr redundant, with only a£14k pay off. Yet keep SpencerFC on playing Fifa and Pokemon go. #WHUFC— On the Terraces (@OnTheTerraces_) July 27, 2016
