West Ham Are All About Attack
Alan Curbishley has been defending West Ham against charges that all they do is defend. and had denied claims that he stops the players attacking.
"No one is stopping them," Curbishley says. "We've got players like Freddie Ljungberg, Luis Boa Morte and Mark Noble and you can't tell me they're defensive.
"I've got two full-backs who like to get forward. Lots of teams want a goalscorer, which is fine, but you have to stop letting them in as well.
"Our defensive record is fantastic and we're just outside the top four for our defensive record.
"Most of our players are attack-minded but it's just the way it is at the moment. We have a strong base and hopefully the attacking stuff will come through, but it's not for the want of trying. In training it's all we do."
In defence of Curbishley West Ham did create a number of chances on Saturday and Carlton Cole should probably have got a hat-trick. I also think that Zamora should at least make the bench for West Ham's next match and his reintroduction to the team should lead to more goals.
