BREAKING NEWS: Alan Curbishley quits West Ham

No, you quit first, honey

And we were all busy watching Kevin Keegan. Llewellyn Charles ‘Alan’ Curbishley has quit as manager of West Ham. The Hammers boss was thought to be heading for the sack before Saturday’s 4-1 win over Blackburn. But it is thought the club’s decision to sell defender George McCartney to Sunderland on transfer deadline day without managerial consent has caused him to quit as boss.

Curbs has said that decisions made “without involving me”, were “a breach of trust and confidence meaning I had no option but to leave.” Hammer fans, what do you make of this?

    Can’t say I blame him. Duxbury is an underhanded prick in claiming that West Ham weren’t going to be selling off our talent only to have the board rip out half of our 1st choice defence without Curbs knowing till the cheque had cleared. Curbs will undoubtedly go on to be a mediocre manager in the Prem, providing season after season of mid table finishes for a team who is happy with that. I wish him the best of luck, and ask that he take Quashie and LBM as a thank you to the fans.
