First off, George McCartney has done good since he has came into the side. He's better that Konchesky by a mile, he's a proper defender, can tackle
and gets forward. Konchesky has been poor all season, if you take a look at alot of the games so far this season. He has been out of position, getting
caught out all the time, cant tackle ect. Curbishley didnt want him at Charlton so my guess is that Konchesky's days are numbered.
There has been talks that Viduka may come, but do we need him? Tevez has started to play well and is starting to look the type of player he was hyped
up to be. Carlton Cole deserves a chance while Ashton is still out as Harewood and Zamora just dont look good enough.
One problem i see in curbishley is that he likes to buy the older player. Matt Holland, Brian Hughes, Kishishev, Kalkouri, Bartlett, Johansson and a
few other players he brought to Charlton in recent years was all over 30.
According to the West Ham board, they want more from the club, they want European football and will stump up the money to get it. But can you trust
him with it? He has signed Boa Morte, albiet a very good signing but he's 29, today he signed Nigel Quashie whos 28. He's also looking to sign
Smertin, who is 31 and the Shaun Wright Phillips deal looks dead as he dont want to come to us. Getting SWP would have been a great signing as he is a
class player and thats the sort of player the club should be looking to sign if they want to go forward.
On the rumour mill comming from a few people i know, Benayoun, Konchesky, Ferdinand, Harewood and Zamora will go if they can find clubs that will sign
them. Also on the cut list could be Coker, Mullins, Sheringham, Ethrington, Mascherano... It would be ripping the guts out of the team but something
needs to be done just for us to stay up this season.
