There is more than one way to skin a cat; and to stay in the Premier League. The Canaries of Norwich City have adopted a different method this season from last, and been equally successful so far in teasing some of the fat cats while staying out of trouble. Yet it is a more dangerous approach, which makes an encounter like this afternoon's at home to Sunderland of heightened importance.

Until three weeks ago, West Ham United's idea of a foreign manager was Luigi "Lou" Macari, who was born in Scotland and brought up at the other end of Upton Park from the Boleyn pub. He did not last, resigning after less than one season. But it is easy to work out what the club's owners saw in Gianfranco Zola, the first of their 12 managers to hail from outside these shores.

Maybe Alan Curbishley does have a future at Upton Park, at least if his luck holds. After all, you just need to consider the evidence for the West Ham manager here yesterday. With the hosts leading 2-1, Blackburn wrongly had a "goal" disallowed for offside and shortly after half-time, Jason Roberts saw his penalty saved. If there was any further evidence needed that Curbishley's luck has suddenly changed for the better, Craig Bellamy, who was out for most of last season through injury, then came on and scored.
