Who is picking the West Ham team exactly?
How inflated an ego has this guy Duxbury got? Now I know he has risen to heady heights despite ample displays of incompetence but I didn't know he was now responsible for team selection. Try putting these two quotations side by side! On the one hand, as I say in an earlier post, he implies that Zola does not rate Ashton by talking about Cole in the "English spine" of the team and not mentioning Beano. Yet, in an earlier breath he says, "I'm not selling him (Ashton) to Stoke and Dean Ashton is not £10million in any way. I want Dean Ashton here, I want him fit, I want him playing and it'll be nice to see him. So he is not being sold."
Now look how many times Mr Duxbury says "I" in that brief quotation. That's funny because I thought Zola was responsible for team affairs, I thought Zola decided who was bought and sold. So, either Duxbury is a complete megalomaniac (which I suspect is true) or he is engaged in double speak and is covering his own back ready for when Primadeano is sold. Wait for the justification when it happens that it was a "footballing decision" made by Zola and for Duxbury claiming that, in his interview, he said that he, personally, did not want to see Beano leave the club. This interview has "Don't blame me" written all over it!
Swallow it if you choose to do so but anybody with an ounce of intuition will understand what is going on here. If you trust this guy, more fool you!
