When Kiwis Fly

A Sports Tour of Great Britain
Premier League

The Premier League is the most competitive football competition in the world and it one of the great joys to go to a game.

Always enjoyable and intense, it is a great day out whether you are a mad keen fan or just want to know what it's all about.

From a New Zealand perspective, Winston Reid captains West Ham who finished the 2016/17 season in 11th Place.

Their season started slowly, playing in their new home ground - the old Olympic stadium.

Results improved through the winter but in early Spring the Hammers lost five games on the bounce and relegation worries. A 1-0 win against Swansea steadied the ship and the team lost again only once after that.

Most fans view West Ham's best game of the season as a 1-0 win over Tottenham at the start of May - mainly because it put pay to any chances of Spurs catching Chelsea for the title. Also, Hammers fans dislike Tottenham even more than they dislike Chelsea!
