Football’s gods smile on West Ham for the Final


The Football Gods are smiling on West Ham. Our last Premier league game is against Leicester on the 28th of May which gives us over a week to rest ahead of the Euro Conference Final . A bit of a luxury compared to the game every three days scenario we have had to recently endure.

Our opponents Fiorentina play their last game of their domestic season on the 4th of June, only giving them a couple of days rest before travelling to Prague.

The Hammers’ opponents meet Fiorentina, who dramatically edged out the Swiss side Basel in the last four.

The men from Florence won 2-1 over 90 minutes to take the tie to extra time and looked for all the world as if penalties were about to follow.

However, eight minutes of injury time were ended on at the end additional period when Antonin Barak netted in the ninth, sensationally sending the Italians through to their first European final since 1961, when they also won the Cup Winners’ Cup.
