Tory MP Comes Out for the Hammers

According to The Croydonian blog (who is himself a Hammer) the ranks of West Ham supporters include the Honourable Member for Bromley & Chislehurst. Glad I helped him get elected now!

    Always look on the bright side of life.

    As someone who appreciates ‘Prudence’, look on the bright side.

    Having read about Leeds’ travails today, being relegated is clearly good news.

    As it will reduce your wage bill, which will be good news for the club’s investors.

    And you will still be one division above Leeds, at least for one season.

    Of course, you are still one point above the bottom of the Premiership table.

    But give it time, you will soon resolve that, and once you are bottom of the table you can look forward to a money saving season in the Championship.

    Who wants to be in the Premiership anyway ? The tickets are far too expensive.

    Good Scottish Luck to one and all..

    From today’s Sun:-

    ALAN CURBISHLEY told Anton Ferdinand he has no future at West Ham in a furious dressing room row.

    Boss Curbishley clashed with the England Under-21 star after Saturday’s 4-0 humiliation at Charlton.

    Angry Curbs told his flops several of them would be out the door this summer.

    Ferdinand demanded he “name names” and Curbishley pointed at the defender and said “You!”

    The former Charlton manager then walked away from the dressing room to avoid further confrontation with his players.

    The bust-up came after a defeat at The Valley that saw them slide below their relegation rivals.

    An Upton Park source said: “It is one thing after another — the team is in meltdown.

    “When the manager arrived, he probably did not realise the scale of the problems.”

    Morale at the club is an all-time low with the incident at The Valley the latest in a long line of rows involving the stricken side.

    Curbishley fears he is losing the dressing room and has been appalled by the shocking attitude of some of the players.

    Despite gaining the dreaded vote of confidence on Saturday from new chairman Eggert Magnusson, Curbishley knows time is running out for him to turn the club around.

    “There was more bad news for Curbs yesterday with star striker Dean Ashton not expected to play at all this season.

    Ashton broke his ankle during an England pre-season training session and only recently returned to light training.

    Despite being able to run gently, an increasingly-frustrated Ashton is still in great pain when putting pressure on the ankle.

    If Curbishley does somehow survive, he will attempt to move on other players such as captain Nigel Reo-Coker, midfielder Hayden Mullins and striker Marlon Harewood.

    Defeat at home to Spurs on Sunday will all but condemn West Ham to Championship football next season.

    They are three points behind Charlton and just one ahead of bottom club Watford.

    More importantly, they are now nine adrift of Wigan in 17th place.

    Charlton travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday for another relegation six-pointer.

    in the end, in terms of the big picture and the major clearout of players that s required ,i don t think the situation with ferdinand is such a bad thing. ferdinand is set to stand trial soon, which indicates hi smind hasn t been fully on football. ferdinand is also symptomatic of the type of player that has let west ham down this term. he is one of many , a number of whom have had problems not only on the pitch,but off it. ferdinand is emblematic of the type of player who thought he had “made it” based on one good season in the top flight and one good FA cup run. a number of players at the club this season seemed to believe that one good season gauranteed them future good seasons at the top level, and that as such they could afford to step off the gas a bit. this is again what happens when you award lucrative contract extensions to players who really have not proved themselves over a long period of time. the club has been through 2 managers this season, both of whom have struggled . although i think curbishley is an unsatisfcatory manager , the fact that neither manager was able to accomplish anything this term is proof that whatever one s opinion on the managers,the real problem has been ,and remains the players. and specifically ,not so much the skill of the players, as their attitude and character.
