West Ham Ruined Curbishley's Career
According to our old mate Turds, West Ham ruined his career. He can't understand why Fulham don't want him and says that he deserves better, pointing out that he "averages" a 10th place finish in the Prem as a manager. Well, apart from being a bit creative with the use of that word "averages", Curbishley might like to stop feeling hard done by and look at the facts.
Firstly, nobody made him hold out for compensation for constructive dismissal, taking himself out of the job market for the best part of 18 months in the process. Had he swallowed his pride and made himself available for work immediately, he might now be in a job. Who knows which club he might now have sitting comfortably and boringly in tenth place in the Prem at the moment? It could be Chelsea or Manchester City Alan! But no, Turds wanted his pound of flesh. Well I hope he chokes on it!
Then Alan might just consider his record at West Ham. I know Eggert bankrolled his folly, but what chairman in his right mind will forget how Curbishley triggered the World banking crisis single handedly? Toxic debt? Try buying Kieron Dyer, Freddie Ljungberg, Julien Faubert, Lucas Neill, Boa-Morte, Scott Parker, Craig Bellamy, Calum Davenport and Matty Upson! Meanwhile, Fulham, the latest club to overlook the brilliant Turds CV, picked up Zamora, Paintsil and Konchesky for the price we paid them for Luis Boa-Morte! Imagine trying to explain that away in an interview!
Then, of course, there is the little problem of timing his departure from Charlton so astutely. Good managers build the foundations, they don't erect the entire edifice on shifting sands. At least 'Arry buys success whilst bankrupting the club he manages, Turds gives his clubs a tenth place finish in return for buggering them good and proper. Look at where Charlton are now! Turds knew the writing was on the wall so walked. If I was a Charlton fan, I would feel very bitter indeed, irrespective of the glorious achievement of finishing tenth in the Prem!
I suggest that Turds looks closely at his own record. What Premiership club in the south of the country would really want him, Fulham apart, on the promise of "I can secure a tenth place finish"? And I can't see him towing that caravan all the way up North can you?
West Ham didn't ruin Curbishley's career, but we still have a headache after his mediocre spell in charge of the club. Yes he did better than Zola, but Iain Dowie could hardly have done any worse than the Italian! Want to know why you haven't got a job Alan? Look in the mirror as you count your ill gained claret and blue blood money!
