History of the West Ham United FC
West Ham United FC is an English professional football club based in Stratford, London. The team was founded in 1895 and has since become one of the most successful teams in England's top division, the Premier League. West Ham has won three FA Cups and two UEFA Intertoto Cups throughout their history, as well as being runners-up for the European Cup Winners' Cup and Intercontinental Cup.
The team first entered England’s top-tier league system in 1919 when they were promoted to Division One from Division Two after winning a playoff match against Bolton Wanderers F.C. They went on to be relegated twice over the next decade before finally becoming established members of Division One during the 1932–33 season. They finished 5th place overall that year with 41 points out of 42 games played - a feat that earned them much praise across Europe then!
In recent years West Ham has been able to establish itself within Premier League competition by consistently finishing midtable or higher each season since 2005/06 when they first gained promotion back into this level again after being absent for seven seasons prior due to its relegation earlier 1998/99 campaign; however, despite these relative successes there remain some ambitions yet unfulfilled such as qualifying for Champions League or Europa competitions - something which many fans are hoping will soon come true under current manager David Moyes who himself has brought renewed optimism amongst supporters alike over past few months leading up until now!

The Irons, The Hammers
West Ham have two very strong nicknames, "The Hammers" and "The Irons" although both derive from the same history. The original team was founded in 1895, as a company team and recreational outlet for local workers of the Thames Ironworks, the famous shipbuilding yard. The nickname "The Irons" has been around since then and when the club crest became two crossed over hammers, the club also adopted the nickname "The Hammers."
