Would you rather him come out and tell you that there is no unrest in the squad, just normal things that happen in football, or would you rather him spend January trying to find the best possible players to sign in this window?

Could he not do both?

Sharpening his knives in case he needs to stab Johnson in the back.

He could but being as this is one of the busiest parts of the year I'd rather he focused on our transfers. 

The only issue right now is LJ and his shit tactics and handling of poor form, unless someone comes out to let us know he's gone then the only news I want is that we're making the right transfer moves and they're happening now, not at the end of the window.

Why? Whatever he said would be the wrong thing.

Like LJ only has a visable presence when we win......as soon as we lose LJ is straight down the tunnel.....why would Ashton be any different....?

That’s the DNA they preach. Shirking all responsibility

Nonsense.  I'm not sticking up for LJ, but after the Brentford game he was over to the Dolman/ singing section applauding the fans.

Harry, from what you’ve said, perhaps he might be best not involved a “player identification”...that should be left to a “football man”.  He doesn’t appear to be very good at it!!!

By all means get Ashton to do the brokering of the deal - that’s “football administration”, which he’s very skilled in.

I'm no Johnson or Ashton fan, but there are plenty of things to criticise them for without things they maybe shouldn't.
Johnson is always on TV/Radio after a game, and most times will acknowledge the crowd . The Red card was rescinded and TBF if he sat quietly down we would all question the passion . 
While some managers are slightly more forthright , when he slams a player you will hear "thrown a player under the bus'  and if he doesn't he's slagged off for talking in platitudes , he can't really win. Only so many things a manager can say really .
Ashton does seem to milk it when we do well, but we all like praise and avoid criticism , I'd be happy if he just stayed clear of the spotlight and do what he does best. One thing I will say, maybe the Media department has a say in these interviews, just to mix it up a little

You probably wouldn't believe it. And then you'd start yet another thread telling us why.

Why? All he’ll say is that there is no truth in the rumours of player discontent and all those fans who are looking for a story will say he’s wrong. 
What’s the point?

The red for Johnson was rescinded according to the Post and Jamie Mac - but he does needs to tone it down,

I've not heard any rumours of unrest in the dressing room other than players themselves saying they've been honest and frank with each other over performances. The only other thing I've heard was the story from MacGregor about Palmer (which is most probably a non-story).

As for Ashton, he recently gave an interview (around Christmas) and he'll probably do the same during or at the end of the transfer window.

Ermmm.........LJ is the ‘head of football’............You must be  referring to our CEO.

What would you expect MA to say? He’s a corporate man. He’s not going to risk his position by revealing what his true opinions are.

He did........and SL refused.

As has been posted on here before - no major decisions are made at AG without SLs approval.

If there's no unrest, then why did the ORIGINAL article by Gregor name his sources? By department at least! 

He listed as I recall, 'Players, Senior Coaching Staff, entourage, Senior Admin Staff and others'. 

That's remarkable that he'd open up his sources in an article like that!

Head of football 😂

You'd be surprised then- sounds daft but I'm sure I saw one article referencing a club which referred to the 'football department'. Sad times and I don't mean that flippantly...what is a football club if football isn't the centre.

Good journalists don't name their sources. Even mentioning their role could create problems for them.

Mind you, he does seem to be claiming just about every member of staff as his source other than the Groundsman so I suppose everybody is under suspicion!

Spot on. 

Good journos may refer to 'Reliable Sources' or 'Insiders'  or similar but that..looking back I wonder what he was doing! 

Was amended in due course to 'a variety of reliable sources' but the original, what can be said! Pretty unorthodox...

Ashton will outlast LJ  

Unless he is head hunted he will likely outlast any head coach. As long as he is delivering on SL's primary objective, which is to improve the club's financial position, he is in no danger of the sack.

To be fair, that’s a CEO’s main job,
