He didn't just save us from relegation though did he, just 2 years later he got us to the play off final as well as making a small fortune from cup runs.

Yes,he got us to Wembley but,we lost,his subs were all wrong which contributed to the lose.Curle got Northampton to Wembley and they won but,he has now still been sacked.He has made us money in cup runs but,has wasted a chunk of it on dud signings.
