West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley believes he deserves more recognition for keeping the club up last season.
Last term Curbs turned around a 12-game winless streak to triumph in seven of the final nine games.
"Perhaps my way of managing is not sexy enough or obnoxious enough.
"To win seven out of nine is a fantastic achievement and it will probably never be repeated."
Curbishley, 50, is now looking forward to a Carling Cup semi-final should they overcome Everton at home tonight.
He said: "If we can get a result against Everton then it will keep everything bubbling along.
"The fans love a cup run here at Upton Park.
"The crowd will be up for it."
