West Ham Disappointed
Alan Curbishly, speaking after today's game, said West Ham were disappointed with only a point but Curbs did have some encouraging words for Solano and Green,
"We're disappointed a bit that we've only got one point but we are pleased with what we've done and it would have been a disaster to have it taken away right at the end.
We played well and came here with a game plan because Portsmouth are playing so well and I think it has paid off. It could have been better. Nobby Solano had two great chances with his head, but it is not his forte.
He hasn't enhanced his reputation in that respect but he worked hard and shows a lot of experience for us and I know he'll be a good signing.
He's been playing terrifically well for us all season. I think he's always been on the threshold of England and they are fully aware of him. Before the last squad announcement, I spoke to (England manager) Steve McClaren who was interested in Dean Ashton and one or two others and Greenie got a mention.
The message to Robert now is 'keep going and lets see what happens'. He can't do anything else."
