In horrible scenes from the Europa cup West Ham are in real trouble against Maltese minnows Birkirkakakaka!!!
They arrived with a slender 1-0 lead from the first leg but looked well out of sorts struggling to get any momentum before conceding to an early Miccoli strike - 1-0 down!!!
And then, in a truly disastrous development, just before half time, James Tomkins received a red card after what seemed to be an innocuous tussle with one of the Maltesers!
This is definitely GAME ON!!!
With the heat and the wobbly referee against us, we look in real trouble.
However, an away goal would surely kill off the tie.....the bench is pretty light with the likes of Maiga and some kids.....
