Euro “veterans” West Ham ready for TSC


The BBC has been taking a look at the big agenda this week under a headline claiming the Hammers are Euro veterans.

Indeed these trips really are becoming the norm and with a touch more like we would be winners of the Conference and the Euro Trophy.

This is our third consecutive season in Europe having reached the   semi-finals of the Europa League in 2021-22, when we were knocked out by Eintracht Frankfurt before of course going on to  beat Fiorentina last season thanks to a late Jarrod Bowen goal to win the Europa Conference League.

The Hammers will have to navigate through a pretty tough-looking Group A that features Greek side Olympiakos, Germans Freiburg and Serbians TSC who arrive at the London Stadium tomorrow night.

West Ham boss David Moyes said: “To be a European winner is something really special. The night was magical for us and for us to score in the last minute makes it even better.

Here’s the team we would expect to see: Fabianski; Kehrer, Oggy, Mavropanos, Cresswell; JWP, Soucek, Kudus, Benrahma, Bowen, Antonio.
