Alan Curbishley has blasted the nerve of Sheffield United to belive they have a case over the Tevez affair.

Speaking on Setanta, he thinks that Tevez's contribution was so minimal that it hardly is worth the breath to make the case.

“I think their argument is fundamentally flawed,” Curbishley said.

“Over 38 games, with the 20 teams competing against each other, to say that one player alone can be responsible for a team staying up… You’ve got to take into consideration that Carlos Tevez didn’t score for 18 games.


“In the run-in he did score, but there were a number of contributing factors. The team was settled, only 13 players were used in the run-in for the last nine games, we kept five clean sheets, we won games 1-0. So has the back four got nothing to do with that result?

“In some of the games Carlos Tevez was substituted before the end. For the football side of it it’s fundamentally flawed to say one player is solely responsible for the team being successful.

“You have to take into consideration Sheffield United’s situation in all of this. They went on a run in their last seven or eight games where they hardly picked any points up. So aren’t they culpable as well?

“There are so many aspects of football and in the game that you cannot pin it on one player. The registration of players is a different thing.”

You wait until I see you again Amber-Mitchell, you f**ing giraffe. I had to walk FOUR SODDING MILES.
