West Ham Win - What the Papers Say

The Times says "expect West Ham to climb towards the top six, then lose their grip in the spring because they are morphing into a higher-budget version of Charlton Athletic under Alan Curbishley. Difficult to beat, solid, sensible, predictable." they also felt West Ham "looked more dangerous after Ashton’s arrival after half-time."

The Telegraph weren't impressed by either team in the first half. However they believe that "if Ashton continues to show the single-mindedness that characterised yesterday's cameo, they could yet join the cluster of clubs pushing for Uefa Cup places."

For The Express it was "one of those cliched games of two halves as the first was instantly forgettable, followed by a barnstorming second." They were particularly impressed with Green's 'superb save' from Tugay late on.

The Mirror say that Curbishley after a year in charge has "steadied the ship, revamped the squad and coped with the customary clutch of injuries."
