Sightings of Curbs like those of Elvis

Curbs has denied that he has been offered the managerial vacancy at Leeds, somewhat cryptically adding that he is not available for work for a fortnight. Sources close to him have also squashed reports that he might be about to become a Canary despite being the current favourite choice of Norwich fans.

The cathedral city seems an unlikely berth for the lad from Canning Town even though he has been described in reports as 'a close friend of Delia Smith's' who admittedly does produce a very good pie.

Sightings of Curbs at matches are like sightings of Elvis Presley and rumours that he was at Carrow Road on Sunday are inconsistent with the fact that he is reported to still be in New Zealand.

A source close to Curbishley, who was boss at Charlton for 15 years, said he is holding out for a management return to the Premiership. He added Curbishley is probably keeping an eye on events at West Ham as pressure mounts on manager Alan Pardew amid poor results and talks over a possible club takeover.

How about Dowie gets the boot and Curbs comes back to Charlton - come back Alan, we need you!!!

For what it's worth...caught up with Curbs about 10 days ago watching the NZ Knights in Auckland.

Having moved over to New Zealand 7 years ago, reliant on SKY for coverage of the Premiership which thankfully is very extensive (5 live games every weekend). My son and I managed to get to the game and after some kind words with the NZ Knights gurus, we were able to meet Alan after the game.

He even signed my old CAFC 'Woolwich' shirt circa 1986.

Couldn't resist asking him about the then newly vacant position at Leeds but he just laughed it off saying they're skint! Joked that if he's waiting for the first Premiership job to come up then he'd be back at the Valley the way things are shaping up.

He looks well rested after 6 months out of the game.
