We're all going on a European tour!
West Ham are in Europe and all without an in-out referendum. It's been confirmed that WHU have qualified for the Europa League via the Premier League Fair Play Table. It's a bizarre way to get in, particularly as an Allardyce team should have been much nastier and picked up more yellows and red cards. Proof the players didn't compete enough after Christmas, but still, we'll take it. First game is set to be played on, gulp, July 2. Just when we thought it was safe to relax for the summer. Like a lot of fans, my holidays are already booked so not sure how many games I'll be around for. Will we even have a new gaffer by then? But it beats the usual slog of pre-season friendlies at Stevenage, though we need to add to the squad quickly.
