  1. If you want to know the ins and out pal, my sister died of cancer 2 days ago and this is the first time I've been back on since then. Thats why I've not been on since my thread the other day. It just happens to tie in with MA leaving. You know nothing about me, so I suggest you keep your opinions to yourself in relation to my passion for this club.
  2. But everyone seem to think he was a big wheel here looking at the reaction. Funny how he is a big wheel here, but a small cog if Ipswich do well.
  3. Bit gutted about this. I know he wasn't a popular choice with the fans, oddly because of his personality, but he did what he needed to do. Good luck Mark, I think you did a great job. Watch Ipswich get to the prem before us now.
  4. A side that was about to be relegated from the championship. Everyone seems to miss that part out.
  5. Again, couldn't care less. Not his fault he gets a decent wage, and just another example on how good a negotiator he is. Entirely up to SL what he pays on wages, and the fact he has billions I would suggest he knows better than you and I on finance and ROV. £527k is around 1.5% of the £35,000,000 we received for the deals made from the Kelly and Webster HE negotiated. So, I'm not bothered by that.
  6. Well, with that in mind, I would suggest that Mark has done a better job than Keith Burt when it comes to signings and outgoing transfer fees and was right to lose his job. I still have no idea what MA pension has to do with anything even if it is a lot of money. I couldn't care less about his pension.
  7. Thats fine, and I'm happy to be accused of being blinkered, but I'd like some meat to the bone so I can at least argue my case. I'm certainly not saying I'm right, but lets at least have a debate about it. So, I respect your opinion, but why do you think that? I'm all up for having my mind changed. I'm certainly not arrogant enough to think I right and everyone else is wrong.
  8. I'm not saying he can't be criticised, but the amount of criticism he gets IMO is WAY over the top. The same with MA.
  9. With the greatest of respect, all of that is simply speculation isn't it? I'm not really sure why his pension has anything to do with it, I'm really not interested in that, but its another stick to beat him with I guess. Again, you don't really know why Keith Burt was replaced. I don't mean this this argumentative way, but do you work within / have you worked with that team? I know you have loads of stats, but have you actually worked within a recruitment team within a football club? Whats the difference between HoR and the analysts below him? Genuine question.
  10. Hey Fevs, thanks mate for the reply and I really respect you as a poster, so having this debate with you is going to be great. I'm certainly not typecasting everyone who doesn't support MA just because he wears a suit, but its hard to write a post with every thought process in mind. A lot of posts I see concerning MA are people calling him a snake and in this thread even a sewer rat, so I've gone with the majority. As you've said, his responsibility is to make sure the administration and strategy of the club is where it needs to be. Both of which I think he is doing a great job. I thi
  11. Exactly. You only have to look at the signing of DS to see that its the manager who has complete control. If you think that DS was a MA signing, then you're deluded.
  12. Exactly this Sam. JL is off, you can tell he's had enough of it, and I don't blame him. Imagine constantly reading from your fellow fans how much they disrespect you all of the time. I really don't blame him. When SL pulls out, then watch how screwed we are. We mock Cardiff, Hull etc, but thats what people want it seems. I think some supporters live in this fantasy land, but the reality of not having SL here with his money and stability will bite HARD.
  13. Its totally not a wind-up I promise you. We as supporters really don't have a say on footballing matters, nor does any other supporter of any football club around the world. That isn't a Mark Ashton or SL issue. But to say they don't listen to us, imo, simply isn't true. I think we as fans sometimes forget that this football club do listen to us when it comes to player purchases. Lets be honest, we were happy with the signings of most of the players we have. SL went all out to get Kalas, Palmer, DaSilva etc; So they do listen. But they aren't going to break the bank to satisfy us all of
