West Ham manager Alan Curbishley has insisted the pressure heaped on his shoulders in recent days is a result of "agendas" held against him in the media.

A trio of successive 4-0 thrashings - at the hands of Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham - put the former Charlton boss´s position under the microscope. Such was the scrutiny under which Curbishley was placed that the Upton Park board felt compelled to go public in their backing for him on Monday.

A statement issued by the board insisted their was "no question" of the 50-year-old´s job being in jeopardy, and Curbishley is adamant any pressure which has been forthcoming did not originate from inside the club. "It was a reaction to the personal stuff which has been written about me," the Hammers boss said of the board´s public backing."
