What the Papers Saw

The Mail thought Ashton responded 'perfectly to taunts about his expanding waistline' by scoring West Ham's first. Noticing this was West Ham's 'fifth away victory of the season' the paper were left pondering why we can't win at home.

The Guardian call West Ham one of the 'Premier League's less glamorous outfits and remained unimpressed by West Ham's win. "Rarely can the visitors have put in such a mediocre performance on the road yet come away with maximum points." The paper however did grudgingly give their man of the match to Ashton.

The Mail on the other hand were impressed by Parker who "danced around Wheater with ease and then buried a composed shot beyond Mark Schwarzer". The Mail also had praise for Solano who they felt was 'prominent'.

The Times feel that 'on their travels Curbishley’s side have been among the best in the division.' They feel that a 'resilience (has) developed under Curbishley'. Scott Parker, the player who has shown the most resilience for West Ham in the last few games, was named their man of the match.

The Telegraph concentrate on Boro's weaknesses but believe 'West Ham appear upwardly mobile.'

The Telegraph also has a long interview with West Ham legend Clyde Best who is now working for the prison service in his native Bermuda.
