Curbs linked with Villa

A report in today's Sub-Standard links Curbs with a possible managerial vacancy at Villa. Although Villa may be the only West Midlands side to escape relegation this season, they are rooted in the bottom half of the Premiership. For years Villa has been more comatose than sleeping giant.

Anyone taking the job would have to deal with the dross accumulated over the years by O'Leary, although he might leave behind a copy of his book of excuses which is one of the biggest in football. Rather than Richard Murray, Curbs would have to deal with 'Deadly' Doug Ellis. There have been rumours of takeovers at Villa for years, but they have yet to come to fruition.

And then there are the fans. They suffer from a bad case of 'Big Club Delusion Syndrome', probably the worst south of Newcastle.

Still, Curbs is a former Villa player (although he was also at Blews). He could probably keep on his home at Essex, staying in Britain's so-called 'Second City' for a few nights a week. Watch this space.

Curbs to Villa is a strong possibility, with my Villa friends welcoming a return of their East London boy. Funny how when Curbs joined Charlton from the idlands he saw Charlton as a stepping stone to another London Club
