Sorry but amongst the heap of drivel talked on here this is up there.
 

They have an employment contract that states the terms of their employment. You are not just cancelling contracts of footballers without spitting out cash or clubs all over the world would be doing it every other week. 

Ok you must be an expert, I not an expert with football contracts but in the business I’m in it works perfectly well, but thanks anyway

Rennies interview is a shocker. Peterhead were streets ahead of us in every department and thoroughly deserved their win. The reference to a bobbly pitch is also lame as peterhead were able pass the ball about without to much issue.

We can't ever offer an opinion on any decision till it exceeds 800k of cost. Gotcha.

I am trying to put some perspective into where we are as a football club. This is not just Rennie or this group of players or this board. The 30k we are spending on Griffiths is nothing compared to the mess that has been left behind by Deans and previous regimes.

Football contracts are very different from other commercial employment contracts.

Have you ever heard of a footballer having a 3 or 6 month probationary period or being made redundant?

Gross misconduct would be just about the only way of sacking them without compensation and whilst we may think that some of the performances would merit that it obviously doesn’t apply.

Can’t think of another occupation where you can completely fail in your job and be safe from sacking for the length of your contract.

So why don’t football clubs all over just cancel contracts? You don’t need to be an expert to work out that surely?

I would sincerely hope that after watching this interview, the BOD put this guy out his misery. A really nice guy, conducts himself very well, but completely out his depth. 
Takes a lot of guts to stick up for that set of cheats, looks like a man haunted.

That all may be very true but on the face of it absolutely nothing has changed. 

From the pitch to the day-to-day running of the club I doubt any fan could point to one single area of improvement.

plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

He looks like he never sleeps.

I have absolutely nothing against the guy on a personal level but he doesn't look well

I thought that too. Almost looks in a state of shell shock.

In all seriousness though, I think he might walk away at the end of the season. He looks nothing like he did 3 months ago. As much as its easy to have a pop at him (I have plenty times), the guy has left his family for a lo g period to join this shit-show. I honestly think he may just be counting down the games.

 

If the board keep him on and he agreed, its a long term deal given his circumstances. Something which I don't think we can afford. I don't see him moving his family over here if he doesn't have long term job security.

I was in favour a few weeks ago but the arguments for retaining him are becoming lesser by the week.

Probably mentioned elsewhere but Queens Park have operated with their SD, who has never managed in Britain, for almost as long as we've had Rennie and Coyle won't start until June yet they will finish miles ahead of us in reality. Rennie has completely failed the task set and we should just cut out losses now.

I agree but surely the contracts are heavily weighted on certain milestones, promotion, play offs, games played, points etc.

So guys like MacKay signs a three year deal and we must honour it unless we pay him off ? Even if he decides to down tools or continues to underperform?

MR is an easy imposter and nowhere close to being a competent football manager.

And great hearing in previous posts that a swear word will never pass his lips. However he’s was complicit in trying to sign a rapist.

Get him and his apologists as far away as possible from our club.
