KUMB have got a three part interview with Alan Curbishley, the first part of which is published today HERE. There’s not a lot of new stuff, but he’s a bit more open than he has been with the mainstream media. I’ll link to the two remaining parts when they are published.
These sort of interviews are normally the preserve of Gary Firmager’s OVER LAND AND SEA fanzine. Last year, for the first time, OLAS didn’t get an end of season interview and from what I can make out the club have tried to stop players talking to Gary and his gang. That is a great shame. In some ways I can understand the club wanting to keep everything exclusively in the matchday programme, but I think i’m right in saying that OLAS outsells the matchday programme by a bit of a margin.
I was going to be a doing a column in the matchday programme next season (interviewing political and media personalities who support the Hammers), but the woman who agreed it has since left the club and no one else will return my calls. So I shall just stick to the blog!
