The Glory Days under Curbs

Talksport look at the glory days at Charlton in a very full account, talking to Chris Powell and Alan Curbishley:

Discussing his transfer philosophy, Curbs says: 'I wanted a hungry player. Perhaps a little bit angry. Going back to Danny Mills, he was in the reserves at Norwich and I had seen him a few times and was a little bit angry about his situation and wanted to do better and was hungry. I liked to bring in players that could play in a couple of positions.'

Glynn Snodin, reserve team manager and first team coach under Curbs recalled: 'Curbs was 24/7 and that’s all he wanted to do. He loved the club and wanted it to be successful. We were all working as one for the first team. Everybody has to work for the first team and everybody has to work for the manager.' 

Chris Powell commented, 'It was great to be a Charlton player and a Charlton fan at that time.'
