Alan Curbishley is being sensationally lined up as the next manager of Derby County just days after walking away from Premier League outfit West Ham.
The struggling Rams have picked up just one point from theit first four Championship games and boss Paul Jewell is feeling the heat from the club’s owners. Jewell’s men were one of the fancied teams to bounce straight back into the top flight after last season’s relegation, but things have not gone according to plan at Pride Park and amazingly the Rams have not yet won a league game since his appointment in Novermber 2007.
Chairman of football Adam Pearson is believed to be fully behind Jewell, but Derby’s American owners led by chief operating officer Tom Glick are losing patience and Jewell is understood to have been given just one more game to turn things around – Saturday’s home clash against Sheffield United.
It’s believed Glick has already put Curbishley top of his wanted list after the former Charlton boss resigned on Wednesday after a row over transfers.
Curbishley is expected to jump at the chance to get back into the game as quickly as possible and Glick is eager to get the Rams, who are now soccer odds of 64.0 to win the Championship, back amongst the promotion candidates.
