West Ham manager Alan Curbishley is determined to one day treat his "blind-date" Eggert Magnusson to the European adventure he has always wanted.

Magnusson on Thursday night revealed his ambitious plans for West Ham include Champions League football and a new 60,000-seat stadium by 2011, but after the tumultuous experiences of last season - when West Ham eventually avoided relegation on the final day - Curbishley wants to take things slowly.

"It was like a blind date when I met Eggert for the first time at Christmas because we had never even spoken before and I went on it not knowing what to expect," said Curbishley. "We need a solid season where we can perhaps prepare the base for pushing on, looking upwards rather than behind us. Top 10 is not unambitious and it is not over the top."
