Hate to say I told you so, but 4-0 and a small crisis is pretty much what we've got. The fact that we would lose, anyone could have guessed, but the fact we would lose 4-0, that's pure West Ham.
I don't know why everyone is getting so excited here. Spuds, compared to us, are a team with better quality players
, probably a better manager and certainly a winning attitude and great team spirit. There's no ****ing way we can compete with them, nor with anyone above us in the table. On current form we'd be lucky to get a result against most of the people below us as well. It could be 19th April against Derby before we find a team bad enough to allow our current shambolic outfit to scrape a win.
Whatever we think about Curbs, he aint going to be sacked until the summer, if then. That's how long he's got to turn this around but, same as last season, a lot depends on the players attitude as well. I think the nuts on this wheel loosened when Eggy left to be honest. While he was in place there was a general feeling of optimism, of someone at the top really getting involved and wanting to drive for the big time. Since he left I've heard absolutely sod all from the powers that be and bugger all happening in Jan, when a striker was clearly needed, cannot have helped. Director of Football? New ground? What happened to all these things? They may not directly relate to what happens on the pitch but they do have an impact on moral. As does losing 4-0 three times in succession.
I said a LONG time ago that when the goals dry up the people at the back are going to start wondering why they bother and their previous good form is going to slip. Guess what?!
We're in for another miserable end of the season. Nothing to look forward to except Spuds overtaking us as soon as is mathematically feasible and a boring mid table finish.
We certainly need a major overhaul in the summer. The missing Director of Football was supposed to be making sure we got into all the good foreign prospects this time around, wasn't he? The fact that we haven't bothered hiring one doesn't make me feel too good about what's coming in the summer, but I suppose we'll have to wait and see.
It's a shame, all this. It's really taken the wind out of this season. Can we fast forward to the summer please because there's **** all interest between now and then.
