Curb's (Not So) Magnificent Seven

The media hounding of West Ham continues unabated today with Nick Townsend pondering the question: Can Curb’s Not So Magnificent Seven be a match for Harry’s Nine? In his Independent on Sunday column, Townsend writes: “West Ham's Yul Brynner [Alan Curbishley], who, himself included, has amassed more of a So-so Seven than one of genuine Magnificence, with those hirelings recruited at a premium, may emulate Pompey's feat of last season, when Harry Redknapp's nine preserved the club's Premiership status. But then many would have opined that West Ham had a decent chance of survival anyway, particularly if Dean Ashton is available again this season.”

I’m not convinced that anybody who witnessed our hapless performances over the Christmas period could have concluded that our best chance of getting out of trouble was to do nothing in the January transfer window but wait on the uncertain return of Dean Ashton. Anyway, that is beside the point. The only reason I mention this article at all it is because it gives me an excuse to do some shonky paintshopping.
