Aston Villa 1 West Ham United 0

Carew Is Pick Of Cash Crop by Stuart James
Ashley Young did not believe huge sums of money would guarantee happiness when he had the opportunity to join West Ham last month and the club he turned down could soon discover the same. Nobody was busier than Alan Curbishley during the January transfer window but the £17.5m the West Ham manager spent on six players promises to bring more pain than gain. How Curbishley must wish he could swap his quantity for Martin O'Neill's quality... The Guardian
Carew Lifts Villa Spirits by Brian Doogan
WEST HAM manager Alan Curbishley’s hopes of dragging Aston Villa into the relegation battle were undone by a magnificent finish by John Carew and a Hammers’ performance that betrayed urgency too late in the game. West Ham hit the crossbar and forced Thomas Sorensen to make a number of quality saves near the end, but Villa deserved to hold out... The Times
Carew Cuts Hammers Down As Upson Limps off by Conrad Leach
Maybe West Ham should cherish this defeat. This was as comprehensive a 1-0 thrashing as they have suffered all season long and yet there was just the single-goal deficit. If they can somehow improve - and they surely cannot get worse after this insipid display for all bar the last two minutes - then, possibly, salvation may not be beyond them... Independent on Sunday
Upson Injury Compounds West Ham's Misery by Stuart James
It was not only an eighth league match without victory that made this another miserable afternoon for Alan Curbishley. Having approached the transfer window like a last-minute Christmas shopper, the West Ham manager appears to have picked up more damaged goods... The Observer
Upson Blow For Troubled West Ham by Colin Malam
It is hard to imagine how things can get any worse for West Ham. Stuck in the bottom three and beaten for the fifth time in new manager Alan Curbishley's nine games in charge, the London club saw £6 million signing Matthew Upson go off with a damaged calf after half an hour of his debut...
