Another Curbishley twist?

Another Curbishley twist?

So it turns out that Alan Curbishley would consider the Wolves job in the summer.

He turned the job down in February, along with anyone with a UEFA coaching licence, but just two months down the line, he would consider a role at Molineux.

"We will have to see what happens but I was pleased I was in a position to speak to Wolves because, since I left West Ham, I`ve been out for some time now," said Curbishley to the Express & Star.

He continued: "I think that 13 games to go was one of the things but there were some other issues. Having had discussions with Steve Morgan and Jez Moxey, I just felt I wasn`t committed to it at that time."

We all knew that the 13 game contract was putting managers off the job and that rests firmly on the shoulders of Morgan and Moxey.

But what were the other issues that bothered the 54-year-old two months ago?

Reports suggested that he didn't hold a shared vision for the club with chairman Steve Morgan. Does that vision change with the almost imminent relegation from the Premier League?

Or will thre be another stumbling block preventing, the only man who Wolves fans really wanted to replace Mick McCarthy making the move to Wolves?

I've read Megson was in the crowd at Stoke.Watching the ESPN coverage on saturday,I noticed Moxey having a chat with John Rudge. I wouldn't imagine he'd demand much as a salary,Wolverhampton born and bred... just saying ;)

I agree...it was the CV he was worried about. I can't say I would be UNhappy for him to come to us but I also have real reservations about his loyalty and commitment to the club. Is he the kind of personality that will jump ship at the first sniff of a better offer or if things start to go wrong????? I believe the answer is yes. I would much prefer and younger, contemporary manager who is still in the game, understands the modern player and has a mixture of Experience and youth in his Backroom Staff. Swansea should be the template of the type of football we want to play and the style of managers that we need to look for. OLE GS fits into that role as does Lee Clarke, Paulo DiCanio. Curbs had his chance and in my personal opinion....BLEW IT!!

I think he may be the sort of guy to jump ship at a good offer, but i dont think he would get such an offer if he was not doing well.. so on that basis he jumps ship after working miracles and getting us back where we belong with a better squad of players for someone else to pick up on who does not want to live near London,,,,then i say bring it on!!

I agree Big Tasty, Gregory, and we could do with someone who's experienced as he would have to play the politics that no doubt exist in abundance at Molineux. We need someone who's character is strong enough to not only rebuild a squad who's morale is destroyed, and stars have all left, but who can do say in spite of **** moxeys best attempts to undermine him.
