Football Tat: West Ham’s ‘European Tour’ T-Shirts Look Rather Silly All Of A Sudden (Photo)

West Ham went bumbling out of the Europa League last night after being ousted by Romanian side Astra Giurgiu at the final qualifying stage for the second year running.

In a bizarre Groundhog Day-type scenario, Astra – who are fourth-bottom of the league, mired in financial woes, destitute, manager-less and have an owner currently serving jail time – beat the Hammers 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium to take the tie 2-1 on aggregate.

Sadly, just to crush a fistful of coarse sea salt into the West Ham wound, it was later found that the Premier League side had sought to tempt fate by flogging t-shirts instructing fans to ‘prepare for a European tour’ on their online store for several weeks.

The ominous shirts are still on sale as of this morning, though they have been reduced from £20 to £15…

What a bargain. Come and get them while they’re stone cold.

    This from OnlyTwoDaSilvas on RedCafe made me laugh:

    ‘Good on West Ham, I say.

    Sacking off the Europa League will give them the freshness and legs through the season to help them qualify for next season’s Europa League.’
