Just had his odds cut to 5/4 at sky bet
I'd have him
All the County fans wanted him out!
Wouldn't want him
No thanks just a league 1 & League Manager we need Premiership, Championship experienced man
The fact he was at the game last night has given people the idea he's in for the job.
After his lack of class over the lee hughes appearance I do hope not.
Can think of a lot worse.

You mean someone like Peter Reid? Ian Dowie? Chris Coleman? Aidy Boothroyd?
Decent win percentage at notts county
Was going to say the exact same thing.
I'd argue that a "Premiership, Championship experienced man" is the exact opposite of what we want.
Considering where we are could do a lot worse - could be worth a spin til the end of the season
We need a manager that knows this level, with potential of course.
It's about time we started plucking all the best players out of this league and the one below.
We can't afford the chaff let alone the wheat.
No point bringing some one in now that doesn't know the players only 13 games to go and will need several games to bed in. This would probably cost us going up this year !!!
Might aswell leave it untill the end of the season
I was in a chippy after last's nights game and a Coventry fan who lives in Crewe came in and said he sat in the home end and seen Keith Curle sat watching the game, so who knows!
Experience in the Championship and Premiership?
We want someone who knows the league we're in.
And besides, whether we want them or not, SISU will employ who they want to manage the club and wont care whether we like them or not!
In the words of Ant and Dec "It's not you".
...well I hope not anyway
would be happy enough with kieth. Again some people need to a reality check with who would want to come here and who we could actually appoint. TBF to waggot and co Robins was a shrewd appointment, which came after everyone was fed up waiting.....but it worked. Although I still dont think he was first choice from those interviewed!
Didnt curle get himself in some sort of bother with county around the time erikkson and money got involved?
do we particularly want someone who was sacked by another team who are lower then us in the same division?
Was he in the "Actually Quite Sensible" Gang?
As I posted last night, I don't usually get involved in rumours, but a relative of Curle's has confirmed interest in him from our side. Whether he gets the job or not is another matter, however given that I got the information first-hand I'm inclined to think there's a real possibility.
Wasn't good enough for County... So we get him!?
Unfairly sacked by county IMO, players sold, injuries and a mass of games cancelled due to the weather left him with a real up hill task to maintain there good start to the season! 45% win ratio in league 1, with a larger better quality squad would he be able to deliver?? who knows, but i haven't got a problem with him being linked to the role at all!
Wonder how long it would take before he is slated for a 'bad attitude'.
As ive said on another thread - a mate of mine is a notts county fan and said curle was hard done by. His exact comment was he was a victim of idiots on internet forums and the club thinking this was representative of all the supporters views!
Ruling out managers because they've been let go by teams around us is as short-sighted and simplistic as doing the same for players, like people tried with Moussa and Clarke.
Lets stick with Carsley until the end of the season and then see what our options are!
WTF, you'd have a man who f**ked up Notts County and who IMO has a shit record in this league? Curle, Westley, Brown and Dickov are the 4 people i dont want, but unfortunatley they look the most likely. It doesnt sound like Carsley wants it, Paulo Di Canio is waiting for the West Ham job and Andy Morrell isnt even in the running. Its a lose lose situation
I totally agree
lets have the man who put these foundations in place. step up martin allen
Idiots on internet forums? Surely not!
When are people going to accept we are not prem or championship any more. We are not going to get that level of manager. We had a manager out of work for two years and he walked .
We are a league one club, with little or no money .the only type we will get are desparodos
There were plenty of idiots wanting to keep a manager on here
I am one who thinks Curle was hard done by, but no one was sold as was suggested by someone on here. His win percentage does look good but doesn't tell the whole story. He started off with a bang last season and almost got us into the playoffs. We missed out on goal difference. He started off well this season, but then results got worse and worse and there was some odd decision making going on. For instance he changed to 3 at the back...playing a cb a fb and a midfielder there. Our home form was terrible and we have lost around 1500 per game on the gate. He was playing the same formation at home as away. We were unbeaten away for 22 games until he switched to 3 at the back which was a bit bizarre..why switch a winning formation?
I still think he could possibly have turned it round and would have given him longer, we aren't going down. He was either unlucky or he built a bit of an unbalanced squad. We were crying out for strikers from the beginning of the season but have a ton of midfielders. I reckon he will have learned from his time with us and the next club who take him on could be the ones who benefit from it.
Sounds a bit dodgy to me! Do managers get involved in match fixing?
Anyone read his article today saying that there are only 3 'world class referees' in the English leagues, naming Michael Oliver, Mark Clattenburg...
We can only dream!
Seriously!!! How longs he been with us!!...
Gotta say, I didnt realise it was that bad !
