Curbishley Re-Appointed On The QT!
Although there has not yet been any official announcement, and Zola has agreed to appear at games for the sake of appearances, it seems that Alan Curbishley has been reappointed as West Ham's manager to head off his constructive dismissal claim. With CB Holdings refusing to stump up the necessary cash to fund either the legal battle or meet the settlement, it seems as if Duxbury may have done a deal to put Curbishley back in charge of team selection.
The club is, of course, trying to hide what has happened but the evidence is mounting. First there was the sterile performance at Blackburn with the team making little or no attempt to pass the half way line, then the signing of the injury prone Franco and now we have the team selected for the Wigan game, complete with three centre backs, two holding midfield players and no place for Diamanti. You're not telling me that this is the way Zola wants to play. Wigan have just gone a goal ahead and it was always coming. If you offer no attacking threat, you invite the opposition on.
If we lose this, we are in for a relegation struggle - mark my words. Depressing, deeply, deeply, deeply depressing. Get Diamanti on quick!
