FA talks to Curbs about England job

The FA have issued a statement admitting that their chief executive Brian Barwick has spoken to Curbs about the England job after a Sunday newspaper published photographs of the two meeting.

'It is accurate that we have met with Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley as part of this process after obtaining permission from the club,' the FA said on its website. However, the FA emphasised that it would be talking to a number of individuals about the job.

I still think it unlikely that Curbs will be the successful candidate. However, one day he will leave and that will be an interesting test of whether he has taken the club as far as he can or whether Charlton have got as far as they realistically can.
