Zola Says Lay Off Luis, Ashton Says Europe
Dean Ashton says West Ham could earn a UEFA Cup spot this season,
"With the position we're in at the moment, I don't see why we can't strive for Europe," Ashton said.
"The team has been doing really well. Slowly but surely, the manager and Steve Clarke have really put their mark on the side. You can tell that by the way the team are playing and passing the ball about."
Gianfranco Zola says that the fans should give Boa-Morte a chance.
"I just don't understand the boos from the fans for him. He has been fantastic for us and every time he has played he has done a fantastic job for the team," Zola said.
"In the dressing room he has been great, too. Every manager wants a player like him in their squad. He does not deserve the treatment he is getting right now and, of course, it affects him - it would affect anybody."
