there's a storm brewing

Premier League West Ham United

comment on the article

I've seen the previous threads on here stating that Curbs has absolved himself of blame regarding the Ljungberg saga.

It seems our owners have a different point of view.

West Ham's fans had blamed former chairman Eggert Magnusson for splashing out on the 31-year-old, but co-owner Asgeir Fridgeirsson believes Curbishley should accept responsibility.

"It's the manager and his management team who are responsible for paying out the player's salary," Fridgeirsson complained in The Sun.

"It is their judgment about how to use the money they paid to Ljungberg in a wiser way. We all have our personal opinion about Freddie and his efforts for this club."

It doesn't sound like they're singing from the same sheet. I reckon he'll be gone at christmas if not sooner.

"He makes Gareth Southgate seem like Liberachi."

I really wanted curbs to do well but he is simply not up to the job. Too many faults in the transfer market by him. Boa Morta 5 million ???? couldn't score even if a 5 yr old was in goal, C. Davenport (ducks if the ball comes towards his hair) Nigel Quashie ( A Championship player) Charlton cole and boa morta should not be in front of Zaber Hines and Freddie Sears simply coz those to lads know how to score and have pace. Curbs u don't have to be Arsene Wenger or Fergie to see this come on Curbs get your act together and you didn't fool me over Tevez you and Fergie agreed that they can have him after all he is your buddy

Think any talk about sacking managers is nuts!
Think the chairman in the premier league and any league for that matter forget to relise its the players who play the game so when a teams on a bad run the manager is a scapegoat for that and ofter gets the sack

Its been said time and time again that the long term managers have success.

"He did nothing for Charlton for decades other than turn them into a long ball scrappy bottom half team. And he is doing the same again at WHU"

Sorry but as a Charlton fan you have just proved that you just talk from your backside. ANYONE who watched Charlton under Curbishly for the 15 years he was with us would have recognised the VAST improvement in the team, but also we were not just long ball merchants. We played some good football and beat the best teams in the league (Chelsea/Liverpool/Aresenal) in their backyards. You are a complete numpty if you think Curbishly did anything else than good at Charlton.

West Ham are lucky to have a manager who loves the club and is capable of saving them from relegaytion one season and taking them to 10th the next - despite massive injury list. Sack him and you'll go downhill.

Give him time - he's a quality manager.

Birmingham fan's booed their own players off the pitch, look at the teams their watching now !
It's about standing together, Curbs has got WHUFC in his DNA, you haven't got a scooby doo ! Undermine and breed a lack of confidence,
that's not what a true supporter will do,
that's the trouble nowadays, fickle armchair supporters,
----------------------------------------------------------
thats a brave statement when you are in the top 4,amazingly enough wenger nearly went when the arse got 4th place on the last day of the season a couple of years ago,there were arsenal st holders that i work with calling for his head.so dont think loyalty is exclusive to the emirates.If i am paying 40 a ticket squire i would like to be entertained and under curbs i'm not

I totally agree that Curbishley is uninspiring. I wonder if he has lost his grasp on reality recently. He says HE kept West Ham up. Was I in a parallel universe when Tevez, Noble and Green kept us up? I doubt I will ever hear fans (myself included) singing Curbishley's claret and blue army. I am really looking forward to the forthcoming season and hope the team pull together, and are not constantly in the position where they have to be overly defensive with one (in my opinion) championship quality striker up front (Zamora out, Cole & Boa Morte still in???? I'm baffled). COME ON YOU IRONS!

I also agree that curbs is a boring manager. I have to agree with katbubbles here too - zamora out and boa morte in? what the...? Carlton Cole however is a good player i think. Quashie - rubbish, boa morte is also rubbish and what the hell did he sign davenport for? a sicknote from spurs who cares about his hair more than heading the ball. curbs needs to get rid of these dumb arses and get some quality players in. I have a theory for all of our problems. Sack Alan Curbishley and replace him with someone who loves the club inside and out:
Poalo Di Canio!!!
I know he has no managerial experience but he is someone that cares and loves the club and will give it his all and do everything right for us and will bring in the players we need and get rid of the players we dont need and dont use. He understands the fans and i think he will be the right man to replace him.
