West Ham Opens Talks with Curbishley

MOST COMMENTED

As expected, West Ham United has opened talks with Alan Curbishley over the vacant head coach position at Upton Park, following the dismissal of Alan Pardew after a woeful 4-0 trouncing at the hands of Bolton Wanderers over the weekend. Curbishley, the former Charlton manager, would have his hands full: West Ham is in 18th place with just four wins from 17 matches. For the Hammers' new Icelandic owners, relegation and depreciation would be a catastrophe after the consortium paid $160 million for the club. Curbishley is a former player who actually hails from the area; he succeded in keeping Charlton in the Premiership for many seasons, and most importantly, he's available to start immediately. "I would love to know what they have to say - of course I am interested," Curbishley said yesterday. "Once you are brought up in a background like West Ham, the affection you have for the club never goes away." Striker Teddy Sheringham, 40, could also be involved in the new coaching line-up, although Curbishley will want the job on his terms. After losing out on the England appointment, Curbishley said he was taking a break from the game, though the new owners would want him to start before the January transfer window, where he will likely have at least $18 million for new signings.
