Woohoo to the Curbs...well, you've got to start on a positive note, the man has been the subject of some real criticism over the past few weeks.

He's the one that we all adore (sort of), the one that leaves us asking for more (goals...points...interest, whatever), he's the Cuuuuurrrrrrbishleeeeeeyyyyy.

Anyway, the man who goes to sleep having a little think about what will happen to West Ham every day (except Saturdays, as rumour has it that's the day he thinks about crazy golf before he goes to sleep. Especially that hole with the windmill...he'll do it one day) has had a few words to say about the current transfer situation:

''Contrary to some reports we are fully committed to strengthening the playing staff."

Yeah! West Ham have loads of cash.

''There will not be a mass exodus and fans can be assured we are working as hard as always to ensure high-calibre competition in all areas of the team."

High calibre? Let's get in Messi and Ronaldo...nobody would expect that.

"Since the new group took over West Ham we have tried to push forward and I don't see selling players as a way of pushing forward."

This being the same group that threw money at the problem, and all they got was a team full of injuries and 10th place in the Prem?

"I want to see certain combinations of players that I haven't had a chance to see. I want to play Craig Bellamy with Dean Ashton."

When he says play, does he mean fight? Because that is something I would want to watch. Especially if they were given footballs as weapons.

Plus, why hasn't he seen certain combinations of players? He does know he's the manager and he can do what he wants, right? That means HE can put players together...perhaps this death match thing might take off...

"I know when I do get them all in that we are a quick offensive side and if we get everyone fit we are in a position to push on. We have a squad that is strong enough to challenge for the top six."

Yeah, but so do Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Evertone, Portsmouth, Aston Villa and Newcastle (OK, not Newcastle. They'll never break the top six for at least a decade).

Ah well, you gotta love the Curbs, if nothing else for the fact he won his first game in charge against Manchester United.
