Neill happy for West Ham to bore their way into Europe
Upton Park manager Alan Curbishley has been attacked by the club's fans for his tactics, but Neill says: "People want to be entertained and get their money's worth - I understand that.
"I am now quite happy to be on 40 points with 12 games to go and have a different type of pressure.
"If we can be entertaining, that's a bonus, but let's entertain more next year when we can attract even better players. We have not lost by more than two goals this season. Last year, we lost 6-0 at Reading along with a few other heavy defeats.
"If we win six out of the next 10 games 1-0, I'd be delighted. We are not blessed with the talent of Manchester United. If that means we have to win ugly 1-0, I'd take 10 ugly wins every season."
