West Ham Stays Up

Posted by Mike on May 13, 2007

Axis of Right’s favorite foreign football club, West Ham United, avoided relegation earlier today by defeating Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford. Carlos Tevez scored the only goal right before halftime and the Hammers held on for the win. Today’s narrow escape is so much sweeter when you consider the fact that Manchester United lost only two games all season: today against West Ham and December 17, 2006 against West Ham. Today’s improbable victory ensures that West Ham will continue playing against the best teams in the world.

The same cannot be said for Sheffield United, Charlton, and Watford, who have been relegated. Sunderland and Birmingham will move up to the top flight along with a team to be named later.

This season was not all it could have been but the ending is nevertheless satisfying. Way to go you Irons! We’re big fans so don’t you dare scare us like that again next season!
