Europa Conference League Final 2023: West Ham claim the trophy

 

08.06.23

This was the first competitive meeting between West Ham United and Fiorentina since the mid 1970s and as expected, it was a very evenly-fought encounter, the Hammers eventually prevailing with a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

 

Valuable piece of European silverware

Jarrod Bowen banged in the winner in the 90th minute and secured for West Ham United a valuable piece of European silverware. The Europa Conference League Trophy is the Hammers’ first piece of silverware since they lifted the FA Cup in 1980 and their first European trophy since 1965, a fitting reminder to fans that they should be careful what they wish for.

 

Three seasons in a row

Only nine weeks ago, sections of the Hammers’ support were calling for manager David Moyes to be sacked, fans unfurling a banner reading ‘Moyes Out’ prior to the 1-0 victory over Fulham which probably kept him in his job. Now the West Ham boss has helped put to an end a 43-year wait for silverware and has written his name into club folklore. With a place in next season’s Europa League secured on account of this win, the Hammers have now qualified for European competition for three years in succession, for the very first time in their history.

 

Tough season

The 2022/23 Premier League campaign was tough for West Ham and they eventually finished in 14th position with only six points separating them from the relegation zone. The East Londoners are priced at 20/1 to be relegated next season while they are as low as 12/1 to finish in the top four next term.

West Ham lost away at Leicester City on the final weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign but they beat AZ Alkmaar home and away in the Conference League semi-finals.
