Curbs for Toon?

Alan Curbishley is one of four names in the frame for a short-term managerial appointment at Newcastle United which has failed to secure a buyer. The relegated club is still recovering from having Iain Dowie as coach.

Gordon Strachan and Steve Coppell have also been discussed by the board. However, the favourite is David O'Leary. While Curbs is reluctant to venture too far away from the M25, O'Leary is based in North Yorkshire. Moreover, he is renowned for his Big Book of Football Excuses which he has kept up to date.

True enough, but Curbs seems to have always harbored a unfulfilled longing for a poisoned chalice - he certainly wanted the England job - and he's been the least entertaining pundit on the prime team reserve team for too long now, both for our liking and his.

I'm sure the Geordie faithful will welcome a new cautious cockney face with their usual sober and considered good wishes. Good luck to him I say!

Don't do it Curbs, it would be the end of you as a top flight managerial prospect.
