    Drawn away in first leg of Europa cup against lLustains fc of Andorra. May have to be changed as the other club from Andorra have also been drawn at home! The stadium holds 1000, even we might get through this one !

    I'm amazed that they have actually got a league, seeing as Andorra is about the size of my garden. Oh well, got to start somewhere I suppose... and we might even win.

    Like everyone else, I'm kinda surprised a team this small can actually qualify for something like this... but I guess that's the whole point of the glamour of the cup.

    At least it's not too big of a slog down there and back - which will be nice.

    Like a lot of Hammers fans... a little part of me just feels like... hmmm, given our history of getting dumped out of domestic cups by the 'lower' teams... this might not be as straight forward as it should be.

    But logically... if you're a new manager - this isn't the worst first competitive game to be handed.

    I would imagine about 50% of the team playing would be youth or fringe players. 

    Apparently they have won their league twice in their 16 year history

    By the sound of it the Andorrans (SP?) are looking to shift this to a bigger ground, I don't blame them either this could be a real money spinner
