West Ham down to 10 men after Sakho is sent off after 13 minutes. He was sent off after being involved in a disagreement with his marker and the Lusitans player went down on the floor. Sakho was sent off for physical contact with a defender in an off the ball incident.

GOAL!!!!  Elliot Lee to the rescue 1-0 to the Cockney boys on 21 minutes 

Maltese team Birkirkara won 3-1 this evening so West Ham are off to Malta in the second round if we don’t concede five goals in the next hour.

  1. Anyone notice that they got the names wrong? Tomkins has his middle name and they got Elliot Lee confused with his dad? lol

  2. they used middle name instead of the usual First name we know them by…


  4. Haha,i didnt want Sakho playing because of injury not ****ing suspension 😉

  5. This Spoonie-ing terrible,bring back teletext! Official sh!te is hopeless

  6. I have been keeping up a little Quick but really cant be arsed to sit looking at a bloody news feed waiting for something to happen.I will leave that to wetpants & their OCD issues,lol 😉

    • Haha I’ve looked there too they’ve already figured out Diafra was sent off wrongly and discussed how long the ban is!

  7. Lol,i aint been there,i can just guess 😀

  8. ****ing Sakho sent off,should never have been on the pitch in the first place.3-0 up against a load of pig farmers & ****ing goat milkers & we stick him in the team.All this **** about him needing game time from the dribble leg experts,well he got game time didnt he,13 ******* mins of game time!

  9. Following the best I can Cullen could prove a asset this season in midfield,
    Sounds like the red card could be cancelled as well,
    Looks like a nice summer trip to Malta,who did not want to be in Europe

  10. Hope we dont have another two players sent off & they score 4 goals in 10mins.Im really worried about this tie now.What if all our players get injured or we could be down to 8 men or they could get 4 penalties.Anything could go wrong!!

  11. & then in injury time we score an own goal when Randolph throws it into his own net.Im stressed big time!!

  12. Lol Stingray,think you have logged into the wrong site.Time to get out of Andorra in one piece before the dirty sods cripple someone.Hope Slav shows their manager some respect,with a right hook to the chops 😉

  13. I reckon it’s not heritage but they were kicked out of Portugal for cheating and that’s saying something considering who their champion diver is. Slav needs to say Xavi some of that you goat botherer lol

  14. Job done is the best way of describing that,lol,people wanted youth in the team so they cant rattle on about it only being 1-0,though against a load of part-timers more than one shot on target wouldnt have been asking too much 😉

  15. Yeah would have been nice to create a few more chances but if people want the youth to play then we aint going to steamroller teams,if they want to see 5 or 6 goals in these matches then you need the first team.Cant have it both ways 😉

  16. Agreed there, it was an experimental team with youth players involved. So it was never going to be an onslaught, especially given that most of the first team are in Ireland and with the first team coaches and Bilic until the other evening.

    Also, we did the job. No point in getting tired punching out in the early rounds. Will need more energy going forward for the later rounds and start of the season.

  17. We should of scored more goals in both legs obviously.
    Nerves in the first leg and a very dirty cynical opposition (but what were we to expect when the gulf in class was so extreme) and the sending off stunted our threat.
    To be honest it was almost perfect, if we had won 6-0 and 5-0 in both the legs we would be going ape about what we were going to achieve this year.It will keep the youngsters especially grounded. They will still have to work hard to impress Slaven and that is what we want more than winning by a mile.
    For the 1st leg at home Westley has said 1 or 2 more 1st team players will play.We also have a couple of friendlies around both legs.
    I think we need a couple of strong players around the youngsters,who I think we should keep in the line up.Morgan and Jarvis can play in the friendlies at home. They are not strong enough to protect and stand up against lower teams who will come to kick and fall over to intimidate the ref.
    Let’s put out a team that will settle the tie in the first leg in front of another sell out

    My team
