Curbs - a lot more chipper
Have you noticed how much happier Alan Curbishley is these days? A big smile, a little one-liner here and there and he looks so much more relaxed in front of the camera. He says that the England speculation is affecting his job at Charlton but the results have not borne that out nor has his demeanour. In fact Curbs seems to bring up the subject of the national job more often than reporters do!
The FA decision makers meet again this Wednesday with Curbs' name still very much in the frame. "O’Neill is ahead at the moment, but some feel he may be better suited to club management, like Brian Clough, and Curbishley is running him close,"
said one inside source.
Remember the days when you could scour the newspapers and not see any mention of Charlton? Well not anymore. The Sunday Times has an interview
with the England candidate and then the Independent on Sunday
catches up with new Addick's hero and art collector Thomas Myhre.
The Norwegian has become a big fan of Curbishley: "He's as good as anyone. He's very modern, he's out there all the time, taking sessions, technically and tactically. He's what a modern manager is. He's very passionate."
