Domzale lead 2-1 on the first leg

1/Antonio charges forward brought down – no foul!!!!!

8/ Kouyate scores IT’S LEVEL ON AGGREGATE: Noble gets Valencia away down the left, he twists and turns before cutting the ball back to Byram and his scuffed effort is helped on by Kouyate from close range.

11/Valencia attempted through-ball to Feghouli is cut out.

Well done the fans- great rendition of Bubbles but this is a vast stadium and it’s going to be a lot harder to keep it going

18/ Feghouli cross and AC scissor kick blocked – all IRONS

20/ Antoni Mance gets in behind the defence but  flagged offside.

22/ Domzale getting a foothold and Antonio forced to make three timely interceptions. Randolph’s  takes well from one effort.

24/GOAL It’s 2-0 and it’s Kouyate again.Carroll  spreads it out wide. Antonio  reaches it and  crosses for AC  on the far side of the box. Kouyate stabs home from the nod down.

31/ Carroll fires over top

39/ Antonio breaks clear , tries to find Kouyate but cut out as huge scramble develops and from Hamers corner ball is cleared.





First Half hero:

Second Half kicks off

51/ Feghouli closed down by left-back Balkovec with some ease!

52/ Ref injured and off LOL On comes fourth official Mr Jaffredo

54/ Valencia over the bar – we’re still waiting Enner. SIGH!

57/ It’s all gone very quiet – Hammers controlling things. Hope they don’t think it’s a case of job done

67/ Feghouli fails to control through ball from the captain and keeper collects

72/ Neat approach from the visitors but no final ball and Randolph collects

73/ Hamers pressing forward – win a couple of thow ins well forward but defence mops up on AC and Valencia

74/ Great intervention by Byram in pen area as visitors threaten

76/ Slovenians throw on Juninho (no not that one)

78/  Kouyate off – Obiang on …WELL PLAYED CHIEK AND THANKS


80/ GOAL…It’s 3-0: Great break down the right by Feghouli and he slams past advancing keeper – fine goal

84/ Slav has an arm around shoulder of teenager Quina who is about to come on – off comes Feghouli  here comes the kid

89/ Carroll off as Slav gives what’s gonna be the briefest of appearances for Fletcher

We’re into the fourth minute of injury time – job well and truly done

That’s it full time – we’re into the next round – great stadium, perfectly satisfactory performance

You Irons

  1. Well, if we still have aspirations to sign a top striker we’d better win this one, because why would someone who is in high demand want to join a club that can’t even bear a minnow from Slovenia

  2. Well that’s what I like to see,yet another of our fans with a down in the mouth negative attitude.I despair of some of the miserable ****ers who support us.

  3. Thanks mate,i will give it a try.Bloody wife has me on holiday instead of being at the match.Grrrrr lol

  4. Oh & all the C&H lads who have gone I hope you have/had a brilliant night.Make sure you avoid Wet Pants tomorrow though.If they didn’t like the stadium it could be a blood bath loool

    • It’s kinda reassuring to come back from a summer away from West Ham talk & find out that a few of them can still find anything or anyone to bleat about on the match thread Ha

      • Lmao yeah the ones who didn’t want to move getting all excited about the slightest whiff of problems.Sad b@stards lol

  5. Fivers crossed this week Antonio knows his first job is to defend,
    Have a great night lads but I would not worry about a forward because if we can’t get money for Sakho the 2 Daves won’t be spending any,
    He never failed his medical but is just not match fit for the start of the season,sounds like I could pass the medical,
    It’s another crock they were never going to sign him just playing Barahino,
