Thursday’s the day

West Ham will start their new life at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday night with an Europa League second leg tie against Domzale from Slovenia. And this first game in the now so-called “London Stadium” is a must-win match, the Irons having to overcome a 1-2 deficit from the first leg in Ljubljana last week.

Rapidhammer and his friends from the Austrian West Ham supporters club “Austrian Irons” were there in the fairly new Stozice Stadium in Slovenia’s capital (right), only to watch an average first and a very bad second half from their beloved Hammers. And as Domzale is a good team in playing on the counter attack the second leg is far from easy cheesy for Slaven Bilic’ men.

The team in claret and blue will have to play much better than down there in Ljubljana! But with a crowd of more than 50k behind them in the new ground, which will be more than ten times the crowd at Stozice, this game under the lights has to be – and will be – a win for West Ham!

Come on you Irons!!!
