West Ham United manager Alan Curbuishley is lost for words to explain his side’s third successive 4-0 defeat. The Hammers were demolished by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the Premiership on Sunday; they had already lost by the same scoreline to Chelsea last weekend and to Liverpool in midweek.
Disastrous. We came into the week knowing we had two Champions League teams and then Spurs, who have picked up considerably in recent months.
So we knew it would be a tough week, but obviously we didn’t expect what has happened to us.
We allowed Berbatov two free headers from two set plays and it’s a long way back from there.
This week has seen our goal difference shot to pieces. It was worth about a point to us and our defensive record was probably the fifth best in the Premier League, but that’s been shot to pieces as well.
Trouble is, the West Ham boardroom is reported to be on the lookout for a new manager since the last three matches have proved (to them at least) that Alan Curbishley wouldn’t be able to take the London club to the next level and may sack him as early as this summer.
