West Ham Still Aiming for Europe
West Ham manager Alan Curbishley says West Ham are still looking to achieve European qualification via the Premier League.
"We have to win at least half of our remaining games - and perhaps do a little bit more than that," said the West Ham manager. "I feel very confident. We need a bit of stability because in the last four or five years we've had a play-off final we lost, a play-off final we won and then last season was played out across the back pages."
Alan Curbishley also tried to put pressure upon Avram Grant ahead of this weekend's game,
"Everything Avram Grant does is going to be analysed and that is something he has to handle. I looked at the cup final and the start was the most important thing and Tottenham made much the better start. If you are lucky enough to be a manager of a top-four club then that comes with the territory.
"Being a manager is getting tougher. That honeymoon period has gone."
