West Ham Fans Furious After Crashing Out of The Europa League Play-Offs

West Ham Fans Furious After Crashing Out of The Europa League Play-Offs

Only a few months ago, West Ham United were fighting for a Champions League spot as they narrowly lost out on fourth place in the Premier League.

Tonight, they have been knocked out of the Europa League to Romanian minnows Astra Giurgiu.

The Hammers came into their second leg play-off tie against the side who knocked them out of the same tournament last year with the tie at 1-1 and an away goal.

But they could not secure victory at their new home ground as a shock goal from former West Brom player Filipe Teixeira secured victory for the Romanians.

Slaven Bilic’s side were the better team on the night but a failure to put the ball in the net cost them dearly as they now face the prospect of another season without European football.

The result left fans of the East London club furious and they took to Twitter after the final whistle to vent their frustration.

So much for European nights at the Olympic Stadium then …
