Off to a flier 

Last night West Ham all but secured victory in our opening tie of the Europa League qualifier with a 3-0 win over Lusitanos in front of a sell out Upton Park to kick off our season in style. 

In what was a team mixed of youth and experience, West Ham never looked in any danger of losing this one, with a confident and composed performance which no doubt would have pleased new manager Slaven Bilic who watched from the stands.

Diafra Sakho looked his usual dangerous self, and was rewarded with two goals for his effort – with the third coming from captain James Tomkins.

The vibe was – as expected – a very positive one, with the club now set to enter a new chapter post Sam Allardyce.

Bilic is not going to take charge of this tie, in fact he is highly unlikely to attend the second leg next week. His time will be spent working with the first team, and pushing for additional signings with the clubs hierarchy. 

All in all a very positive start, and one that few can have complaints about.
