Indeedy Marky...my peripheral view also.
'Stuff' happened or it didn't?
This is soooooo 'Brexit'ish'!!
The biggest name manager in our history, the guy with the biggest ever budget, the guy charged by our most generous ever Chairman with getting us into the Championship? Sitting 5th place in the league? A fans forum with him cancelled 24 hours before his resignation for tenuous reasons? Who then goes on to give the most see-through and barely believable of reasons for leaving us and appearing an hour later at the game of a club he joins 24 hours later, before never touching on it again? And not one reference at all by MTFC to him or any of it?
It's all been sorted out behind closed doors, and probably before the forum was ever cancelled. I'd imagine that it was sorted out on Sunday - MacAnthony would have approached JR for Evans before McCann was sacked, JR would have been told by Evans that if he didn't accept it Evans would walk out anyway, and everyone found a way to make it look at smooth as possible. Part of this being that Evans had to be seen as having 'resigned' - as it's better sounding than JR allowing him to leave, and it would be up to Evans to come up with a reason why, that didn't make it look like MTFC had let him go - which is why Evans reason is so tenuous; he doesn't care, and it doesn't matter.
My starting position would have been Peterborough paying any compensation we owe to the club of our next manager and all fees due to by MTFC to Peterborough for anything (Including Miller loan) written off.
Controlled & Clueless. If this is the big life, well I ain't looking to live it.
