West Ham boss Alan Curbishley admits he had to reign in fit-again Dean Ashton for their victory over Roma.
"He has worked ever so hard, perhaps two months more than the others, and has come back fully fit. I had never seen him train before, not close-up anyway. The last two to three weeks has been an insight for me.
"Dean must be so happy with the way it has gone. It has been a long year for him, but he will come in tomorrow morning and say: 'Right, I have thrown a marker down, it is up to you to decide what you want to do'.
"Bellamy and Zamora are the competition and I have something to think about now. I wanted to get to Monday morning, to get through pre-season, and then see what is available to me."
