Although it has not been the most exciting of seasons he very much deserves his chance. I have no problem with tenth place, but its the way we have approached games that has just bored me so much. We have become one of the worst teams in the premiership to watch at times. But he met his target successfully this season so he very much deserves to keep his job, in my opinion. I dont think his position should really be questioned at this particular moment in time as he aint done much wrong in terms of targets..we have had worse seasons :lol:

I think he has done a good job.........yes I argee negative play but Curbs steered us through a very competitive premiership. We forget our top creative players have all been injured plus Ashton coming back from a very serious injury and to finish tenth and finish tenth easily being there for what must be 19 weeks without a settled side I think is a good season. I fear some fans should be careful of what they wish for, a new manager might be a disaster.

Am I allowed to use any other profanities to describe the heretics or should I just leave out the insults altogether?

Has to be a yes from me, he kept us up and hes got us a top half finish. Lets see what he can do with a full squad and at least give him a chance at taking us to the next level.

I think if we'd had some of the performances we got earlier in the year with Bellamy tearing into teams now rather than then, we'd probably be cheering on optimistically with the team clearly making progress and "going forward" and all that stuff. As it is the season's ended poorly, but obvioulsy the potential is still there and they seem to be taking action to remedy the various problems.

Overall looking forward to next season.

Had to be an 'unsure' from me as I'm not convinced we would be able to replace him with someone better at this time.

Boring football, uninspiring signings, not getting the most out of our best players.... I voted yes.

The way i see it, keep him for now but if we are still in the same form we are in now (which is basically relegation form) after 10 games at the start of next season then get rid. I think he needs to be given a chance to rearrange the squad and have players like dyer and bellamy fit and then see how we do. However, if we hit the same post-xmas form again then get rid then too. He really does need to prove he can make us play for a whole season, not just half of it then watch us slide down the league a la charlton.
But you do have to sympathise a bit with him, there are times we have had 4 central defenders out injured and over 10 players out for most of the season.

Had to be a yes from me, yes ok you can moan asbout his signings being injured all season and his fitness team etc. But with Nani coming in and a new fitness and physio team, I have no doubt that Curbs can take us forward.
FFS if we can finish 10th with most for the 1st team out injured it has to show that Curbs knows something about managing a football team. A few new signings and I really think we can qualify for Europe next season. At the very least I think Curbs deserves 1 more season.

Thanks for the poll UTJ :thup:

My view, of course he should.........He took us to a miracle escape from relegation last year and a top half finish this year.......If we start sacking managers on that scenario we really have become a c**t of a club.
