Is the truth too much to ask?
Well someone's bloody lying to us.
Murphy: "It's a difficult situation which has risen. I need to focus on what is ahead of me now."
Curbishley: "It's gone 10pm and I've not been told anything, so we'll have to wait and see. If he leaves us it will be none of my doing and it's nothing to do with the club.”
What a fucking royal farce. So we sell one of our best players 15 minutes before the deadline, without having a replacement lined up. No one knows what the fuck is going on. We sell him "in a deal which could be worth up to £2m,"
which is what? £1.5m + money if Spurs qualify for the Champions League? Jeez Ade Akinbiyi went for £1.75m, The Yids are even understood to have received £2m from Fulham for Michael Brown
!"At this moment he's still a Charlton player. I've just come out of the dressing room and it's gone 10 o' clock and I've not been told anything."
Well, let me enlighten you Mr Manager from 4,000 miles away. Why you were spouting more bollocks to us stupid fans Murphy was at Spurs' training ground signing on the dotted line.
It is plainly obvious that this deal was done earlier today, the press sniffed it out yesterday
, but even after pulling the wool over our eyes, Curbishley lies further by saying he knew nothing of the move at 10pm.
Now, don't mistake me for someone who wants a moaning, whingeing piece of shit playing for my beloved club, because I don't but this is a huge blot on Curbishley's CV in my mind.
When Murphy joined the club, just 18 months ago, he said: "I wanted to work with Alan because he is a manager with such a big reputation and he is someone who I think can improve my game."
Well now "Alan"
is the reason he leaves.
I was suggesting recently that Curbishley could become the next England manager
, not because he is the best man for the job, but because of circumstance.
Well circumstances are unravelling, and have been for some time now, that he can neither handle or motivate big named players who don't fit perfectly into his unimaginative, workmanlike and constrained playing model.
Hurrah for Kish, Holland and Hughes. They get my support because they want to play for the club but we deserve more, we deserve better, we deserve a bit of fucking honesty.
