Curbs names his key season in charge at Charlton

In a long interview with Richard Cawley Alan Curbishley says his first season as a manager with Charlton at Upton Park was the crucial one for the club's future.   It required a siege mentality: https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/alan-curbishley-on-his-key-season-in-charge-of-charlton-putting-record-straight-over-his-exit-and-being-picky-over-other-boss-jobs/

Curbs knocks on the head the recurrent myth that he was forced out of Charlton by restless fans who wanted European qualification.  It was simply that the chairman wanted him to sign a three year contract and he wanted to see out his remaining year and then make a decision depending on where Charlton were going.

Curbs has only recently dropped out of the top ten of managers who managed Premier League games.
