Wow, was not expecting that, does this put a different light on the coaching shake up the last few weeks?
No, not that one!

Strange timing, pretty much everyone had just turned positive, perhaps he could have sucked some of that up for a bit, especially after the hellish time he’s had in recent times.

So according to some on here he has finally got all the ducks in a row and the departs with immediate effect, whereas you’d expect 3 months notice in that position.

Fire no smoke without or words to that effect

Very surprised, I think another interview with the chairman was in the works? Well at least they have something to talk about.

Agree congratulations to Andrea, everyone seems to speak very highly of her.

One of the posters on here, it may be Strawclearer, apologies if it isn’t, does sometimes hint he has inside information, it would be interesting to get their take
