    Isn’t the rolling 1 year contract thing, where he’s always got a year on his contract? So if he leaves, for another team, the compensation is for 1 year & same if he’s sacked?

    Imagine being a lawyer at an employment tribunal.. "is it not fact Mr McCann, that despite being provided with best tools available to you in your sector, you're just simply not very good at your job... would it not also be fair to say Mr McCann you have been stealing a living off this football club for two years"..

    ‘I never should have left Doncaster three weeks before the season started & after selling their best players, but I couldn’t believe my luck when a Championship team came in for me I just assumed they’d got my cv mixed up with someone else’s but you can’t blame me for that’.

    Do you really think they'll sack him for failing to get us promoted? I don't see that at all. We went down in the most abject fashion and his job was safer than Klopp's. Not a chance.

    Yes. I think the clubs aim is to get promoted and if he fails to achieve that, they have no valid reason to keep him. He took us down, if he fails to take us back up, he’ll be gone.

    One thing is for sure, he ain't going anywhere whilst there's still a chance of promotion, so the constant calling for his head is futile.

    Christ, he was lucky to still be here then.

    What happened in the following months was nothing short of abhorrent.

    90% of clubs would've sacked him after the 5-1 loss to Brentford, which happened on 1st Feb last year. The other 10% would've probably sacked him after the 4-0 and 5-1 to Leeds and Stoke respectively only a couple of weeks later. He would never have had a chance to manage post-lockdown.

    If he wasn't handed his cards then, he won't be now.

    End of the season if we're still in this league at the earliest.

    Darren Ferguson would be the perfect fit as Hull manager. He’s doing well in his third stint at Peterborough (although he does have a tendancy to bottle it once the going gets tough) he’d be cheap, which would tick box number one for your owners, he’d be able to fill the side with loanees from Man Utd so no need for a big transfer budget, owner’s box number two ticked & he’s an ex Donny Rovers manager.....I rest my case!

    No problem mate. Our twat of an owner will pull another unknown, non achieving, yes man, rabbit out of the hat if McCann is ever blown out.

    I just hope the local radio station doesn't give him any more air time to tell us why he chose him.

    It really gets to you being the smaller, poorer neighbour doesn't it?

    Secretly, I’ve always had a sneaky admiration for the way Barnsley go about their business, their recruitment of players, knowing when to buy & when to sell, that kinda thing.

    However, I wouldn’t agree with your assumption that we’re ‘smaller’ here in Donny or even that we’re necessarily ‘poorer’ than our neighbours, it’s more to do with being ‘cannier’. Being canny right now, with no gate money & other match day monies coming into the club, means ensuring you have a sustainable club (be that the use of more loanees than you would ordinarily ‘like’ to have at the club) so that you’re still able to compete without ‘bleeding’ money unnecessarily.

    It’s all about balance & of course having owners of the club who are local people & actually care about the club & have ‘an investment emotionally’ as well as financially with a vision, plan & a commitment for success.
    I can appreciate that last sentence will probably not resonate with you having the owners you do & all.

    You must be young. Going from div 4 to the Prem, FA cup and Europe whilst spending much of the last decade as the best performing club in Yorkshire despite wasting less cash than certan others....

    Local owners? Do your research....

    I fear you're trying to teach granny to suck eggs.

    You're surviving lockdown on a 1.5mil whiteman fee. We're doing it on an 18 - 25 million bowen fee. So yeah. See the difference?

    "Care about the club" - you might have us there but Ehab cares about his bank balance so sustainability is the name of the game....

    .... Oh and your best player is 40 and retiring. Ours are all under 26, with the pick of them under 21.

    You lost at ours and drew at home to what's essentially a 23's squad.

    Run along to bed now. Gotta be up for home schooling.

    You’re quiet on the match forum tonight matey.
    Early start for you come morning or up late tearing your hair out?

    Go easy on the latter, save some of those follicles cos I reckon looking from this ‘poor neighbour’s’ side of the fence’ it’s gonna be a long, tough, ugly season for you ‘rich boys’..........umph! Apologies, tried to stifle a laugh there but the curse of the ‘poor neighbourhoods lad’s snot’ appeared like a Humber tide!
