Chelsea believe Alan Curbishley's comments about Sir Alex Ferguson were 'unnecessary and inappropriate'.
The West Ham United manager praised Fergie in his column, stating that it would be an injustice if United were to lose their league crown. He concluded that most managers would like to see us over the line first and he would raise a glass for Fergie if it happened.
Chelsea expressed their displeasure over these comments which, I must say, are rather unfortunate but I don't think they have any right to complain. First, Curbishley's West Ham beat us three times in a row now so they really can't be accused of regularly rolling over.
Second, Chelsea play on a Monday afternoon at Newcastle, for no clear reason (at least it's not clear for me) apart from that they are guaranteed the most possible rest to recover from their Champions League semi-final. I would not mind it if we played our game on Sunday afternoon - but we are forced to take part in another morning kick-off on the Saturday. Is that fair? I don't think so.
Curbs since then insisted that West Ham won't roll over, claiming that their bonus scheme only kicks in if they finish in the top 10 - but in truth, they'd need to lose both their games with Spurs winning both to slide down to 11th. Anything can happen though.
