Not up for the Cup
A quiet weekend for West Ham. When was the last time we went out of both cups in the first ties we played? I make it 1998-1999 when we lost to Northampton Town over two legs in the League Cup and Swansea City in an FA Cup replay at Upton Park. Let's hope it's worth the sacrifice by gaining automatic promotion.
