One Loss and the Sky Falls In

West Ham may have only lost one game but from the media reaction (and from the reaction of some of the fans) it certainly seems that not only have the wheels come off but the doors and the engine too.

Cue the Daily Mail!

In an article subtly entitled "Hammers Meltdown" The Daily Mail seem to think that the club's owners are positioning to replace Alan Curbishley. They claim that "Gudmundur Oddsson and Thor Kristjansson and technical director Gianluca Nani were seen talking in hushed tones at City after their embarrassing defeat," obviously implying that they were plotting to replace Curbishley. However it would have been more suspicious if the three of them didn't talk but sat in silence pretending that they didn't know each other.

Where The Mail is right to raise suspicions is over the sale of Anton Ferdinand (who it now seems will move as soon as he recovers enough to pass a medical). Curbishley has hinted that he did not wish to sell Ferdinand and it seems the clubs owners did not inform Curbishley that they were touting the player around.

Even more worringly The Mail claim that West Ham have been touting around Matthew Upson and he also may move before the end of the transfer window. They claim also that West Ham are in talks with Sunderland over the sale of striker Carlton Cole and also that he has an option to join Hamburg.

This seems like a bit of asset stripping imho. Actually I find it strange that people didn't bat an eyelash over some of the obviously stupid sales and want to cry now for "Mr. I'll break every bone in your body, well, because I'm immune to the laws of the land".
