Curbishley unconcerned over West Ham job prospects

"I'm used to being the 40/1 outsider," the former Charlton boss told Sky Sports News.

"I've been in the game a long while so it was always going to come around that it would change a little.

"I'm not too fussed. I'm probably doing the other 19 managers a favour at the moment.

"I don't read too much into it. It's all part and parcel of being a Premier League manager, there are a lot of ups and downs.

"Results determine a lot of things so I'm not too concerned.

"I get a bit fed up with some of the premeditated stuff. I think we have to be judged on what we do and judged on where we are at and how we attack things.

"I'm sure that everyone at West Ham is looking forward to having a successful season."
