Charlton Athletic 4 West Ham United 0

Valley Of Death For Horror-Show Hammers by Amy Lawrence
'Thank you very much for Alan Pardew,' sang the Charlton fans. It was a soundtrack that packed a fitting emotional punch for this strangely incestuous relegation collision. The ex-West Ham manager inspired his new team to their finest display of the season. Down the touchline, the ex-Charlton boss oversaw an absolute shambles.... The Observer
Curbishley Looks A Broken Man As West Ham Implode by Stuart James
The only thing missing after Alan Curbishley delivered his assessment of this humiliating defeat was a towel thrown from the West Ham manager's corner. Curbishley's crestfallen demeanour was that of a man who has come to realise he made the worst decision in his footballing life by choosing to return to management at Upton Park... The Guardian
Hammer Blow For Curbs by Joe Lovejoy
Alan Curbishley admitted beforehand that West Ham had to win if they were to survive in the Premiership, and relegation will certainly be their fate playing like this. The classic “six-pointer” was over as a contest before half-time, with Charlton three goals up, home and hosed, after 41 minutes.... Sunday Times
Curbishley Taunted By Home Truth by Nick Szczapanik
The Charlton Athletic fans taunted West Ham United on Saturday with chants of “Are you Millwall in disguise?”, which was harsh – on Millwall. West Ham were dysfunctional in attack and deficient in midfield, while a picture of their back four should appear next to the word “disarray” in any good dictionary... The Times
Same Old Story For West Ham And Curbishley by Phil Shaw
Grand opera and soap opera rubbed shoulders at The Valley. Before kick-off, a tenor in a Charlton scarf crooned Verdi's "La Donna e Mobile" on the pitch. As the drama unfolded, and people in the West Ham side went missing much as they do when EastEnders kills off a character, the visitors' end reprised the tune with the angry refrain:"We want our money back."... The Independent
Curbishley Falls Into Valley Of Doom by Jason Burt
Charlton didn't just take three points from West Ham yesterday. They over-ran them, destroyed them and crushed any remnants of dying belief that they can escape relegation. Goodness knows the maelstrom of emotions washing inside Alan Pardew and Alan Curbish-ley. The two men, whose destinies have been so inter-linked this season, had a day from heaven, for the Charlton manager, and a journey to hell for the one in charge of West Ham... Independent On Sunday
Curbishley Caught In A Whirlwind by Roy Collins
How much lower can this pitiful West Ham side go? And how much more can owner Eggert Magnusson take? The club for whom he paid £108 million were so woeful that hundreds of their fans walked out before half-time, and those who stayed sang: "We want our money back."... Sunday Telegraph
Collapse Leaves Curbishley Facing Reality by Clive Tyldesley
They said the result was all that really mattered, but the score may come to matter more. Charlton claimed the three most important points of their season to date, but the margin and the manner by which they won them could prove most important of all. Two teams who started the game level on points, ended it a world apart. Charlton are planning a getaway, West Ham are planning a funeral. One team were fighting relegation, the other were preparing for it... The Telegraph
