Alan Curbishley accepts he's under pressure at West Ham ahead of the new season kickoff.
"I guess you could say I've had an easy road until now," he told the Waltham Forest Guardian. "The vultures have never circled over me before, but I'll deal with it.
"I understand the criticism - I don't close my eyes to it - but I don't have to accept all of it as well.
"Some of it is true and I take that on board and I try to change."
