Curle's rebuke to Palmer
Manchester Evening news, http://www.manchesteronline.co.uk, 3 Feb 2003
KEITH Curle backed away from a move to Stockport County because of "dogmatic" manager Carlton Palmer.
The former Manchester City defender trained with the Hatters earlier in the season after being released by Barnsley.
But he has revealed that a possible move to Edgeley Park was kaiboshed by a clash of personalities with under-fire Palmer.
Curle said: "He can be a little too dogmatic at times. With him it's either my way or the highway.
"We had a few conversations about working together, but with our personalities and views on football it wouldn't have worked, which we both realised."
