A driver with a big local furniture company told me his firm had delivered furniture to Alan Curbishley at a house he has bought in Failand.
Why has the former West Ham and Charlton manager bought a house in this part of the world? He must have his eyes on the City job.
I suppose the other candidates could be former Wigan manager Paul Jewell, Steve Brown, sacked at Hull last week. How about Graham Souness, Gareth Southgate or even Sven?
Maybe they should go for up and coming former City player Paul Tisdale who has had success with Team Bath and Exeter, what do you think?
