Has Curbishley Burnt His Bridges?
With Portsmouth turning to an even baggier set of eyes to oversee their struggle to avoid the drop, has Turds burnt his Premiership bridges by hanging on for his compensation payout? His criticism of "foreign owners" this week wasn't exactly a bright move for a guy out of work and looking to get back into managing in the Premiership was it?
Where does Turds go from here? He was linked originally with the Sunderland job, but he chose to go for the pay off for wrongful dismissal instead. Bruce has subsequently done a brilliant job. The Hull job seemed a possibility, but Brown does not know when to lie down and die so that situation has still to become vacant. Portsmouth seemed like the ideal job for Mr Mediocrity but when you have one safety first bore already on the books, why recruit another?
Turds may be hoping that Big Sam's operation doesn't go to plan or keeping an eye on Megson's tribulations at Bolton, but would he really fancy towing his caravan all the way up the M6, even if these positions became available? Birmingham might be a possibility if they start to struggle and, I suppose, Wolves may decide that sticking with a guy with an amazingly successful record for securing relegation from the Prem, might not be the best idea. But would Wolves fans welcome the Turds "Lump it and see" football any more than we did?
It may well be that Turds has burnt his bridges by holding out for the compo payout. I hope so because it will serve him right!
