Curbs blasts press

In a short media conference after the Brighton game where no questions were allowed Curbishley used his time to have a pot shot at the press.

He defended NRC saying he was 'outraged' at the criticism he had received and that it was nonsense to suggest he was the reason we were in the bottom three. He implored everyone connected with West Ham to 'leave him alone'

His other bug bear with the press was the way they screwed his words around a couple of days ago to make it sound like he was blaming the summer signings for our problems. He said he was merely pointing out that they had not established themselves in the team (with the exception of Green) and that he intended to sign experienced players in the January window who could step straight into the team and do a job for him straight away.

He said I'd like you to print that and that is the end of my press conference.

Read the full spiel at Knees Up Mother Brown.

It would have been interesting to here the answer to the question the Sunday Times said they would have asked if allowed. "In that case, why wasn't Reo-Coker even on the substitutes’ bench yesterday? (after rumours that West Ham did not want him to be cup-tied in case they decided to sell him.)"
