Little bit of stuff on twitter tonight to from Joey Pople who’s been ITK on some stuff in the past.

Far as I can tell that guy just posts stuff Gregor does, about 2 mins after Gregor tweets or reports it’s on Bristol live...

Which is good enough for me. Goodbye Mark.

Everything Ashton does is to protect himself. 
LJ ‘covered’ for him for years, but as soon as the flak started coming Ashton’s way after LJ’s departure, he’d have been carefully plotting his exit. 
His CV and reputation will be protected by leaving of his own accord. 
Don’t think for a single second that Ashton would do anything that doesn’t benefit himself. 

I have no doubt you're right - but that implies to me he's now seeing his position as potentially under threat, or at least under scrutiny.

I just wonder what stage it'd get to for Lansdown to pull the trigger. As @GrahamC mentioned he sounds a big fan, although it'd be extremely poor form for him to publicly air the dirty laundry between himself and his CEO/COO (whatever he is).

My guess is he'll leave on publicly very good terms and probably seemingly of his own accord no matter what the reality is behind the scenes.

It would certainly have been a control-mechanism of sorts. 
Either that or pure and utter incompetence.

Harry do you think that may be why he wanted Holden so he could carry on as if Lj was still here ? 

Ashton didn't want Holden. 

SL's call 100%

Never even heard this theory?? 

I think there's a multitude of reasons JL was never going to follow in his Dad's footsteps. 

Primary reasons being his penchant for snorkelling and reggae music

Normally when someone in this sort of position leaves they are put on gardening leave. What is to stop him taking all our transfer targets with him? Actually probably for the best if he does take the list with him.

Assombalonga to Ipswich?

Holden as a sort of "caretaker" until Nigel Pearson would be available - remembering that NP had Long Covid or recovery from Covid back in June/July/Aigust? 

Not true at least for Pearson. SL said Pearson was not on their long term target list. But maybe true for another person.

Steve "take us to the next level" Lansdown appointed Holden? 

I know you're quite reliable on here, so what information am I overlooking? Why was it 100% SL? Just because it's a classic lansdown internal appointment?

So has he (potentially) jumped, been pushed, or a bit of both?

Wonder if Steve will be sad to see the back of him or not after this last year.

If he thinks Ashton is Mista Know it all he might.

When MA was appointed it was all, "You and Me We Can Conquer the World” , but when MA finalised his contract at Ipswich and told them “ Singed, Sealed, Delivered I’m yours, SL felt it was more “Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday". When MA tells SL his 2 months notice period finishes  in June SL’s parting words will be “I Never Dreamed You’d Leave in Summer” but, you might be going but I will still be here and “livin’ for the City”.
