These are the best jokes as West Ham are knocked out of the Europa League in the third qualifying round following a 2-1 defeat to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu.
The Hammers finished their brief continental stint with a 4-3 loss on aggregate before the Premier League season has even started.
Although it may prove to be a blessing in disguise, leaving the club able to fully focus on domestic competition, many were left disappointed as manager Slaven Bilić chose to field a weakened team ahead of their opener against Arsenal on Saturday.
As the Fair Play League qualifiers exit the Europa League, don’t miss the best jokes from West Ham’s 2-1 defeat to Astra:
The shock of West Ham losing to this Romanian side is Astra-nomical.
