Dealing With A Crisis

There are many ways to deal with a crisis. If you're Heather Mills, you book a breakfast TV slot and launch into a tearful rant about the wicked, nasty, evil media. If you're the England rugby team and you've just lost 36-0 to South Africa, you ignore the boss and adopt a siege mentality that takes you all the way to a World Cup final. And if you're the prime minister, you simply quash opposition hopes by saying no, thank you very much, we won't be holding a general election just now.

Similarly resourceful in the crisis-handling stakes is Alan Curbishley. The West Ham United manager is still planning to add weight to his injury-prone strike force by recruiting Internazionale's Adriano according to the Guardian. The generously proportioned Brazilian apparently rejected a planned summer move to Upton Park on the grounds that the nearest West Ham will get to Europe this season is a midwinter break in Benidorm. However, that was before Roberto Mancini decided that Adriano's fulsome figure couldn't be accommodated within the narrow confines of his 25-man Champions League squad, dashing the striker's pregnant expectations of Euro frolics and prompting him to dream anew of blowing bubbles at the Boleyn Ground.
