West Ham Improve
Curbishley got a lot right against Birmingham, in particular starting Etherington and Mullins in place of Boa Morte and Bowyer. I thought Spector had a poor game and although Etherington and Mullins played better than Boa Morte and Bowyer did last week these are the positions we would want to improve upon.
It is lucky then that next Saturday hopefully we will have Neill in at right back, Parker in midfield and Lljungberg on the left wing. With Aston also hopefully soon match fit that looks like a very good starting eleven.
The big question is how often will all those players be fit at the same time?
