Andy Rolls Leaving

Recommended Posts

I really don't know how Ashton can preach about process and procedures and then just appoint his mates. Surely you would review the previous positions of who you recruit and in Rolls case ask tough questions about why his clubs seem to have constant injury problems. Not laying all the blame at Rolls door but the buck does stop with him!!

Yes you are right about Rolls, just a bit murky for me as he was clearly recruited by our current CEO whilst he is working his notice period.

I want to know when Ashton found the time to negotiate with Ipswich whilst maintaining responsibility for his CEO actions with us. Cannot help but wonder how long his eye has been off the ball.

Also I think he is in the elf board ? Who does he represent at meetings us or Ipswich?

For those concerned about conflict of interest, I am assured that Ashton has unofficially left. The club are just putting the usual spin on it to save face. 
SL had a wake up call - and he ain’t happy. 

Rest assured - HE HAS GONE. 


I am glad to finally see many of our fans coming to the realisation of who Ashton is. 
I’ve been warning you all for 5 years. 
What a massive relief that he’s gone and taken his toilet with him. 
 

For those who’ve commented on the Paul Cook juxtaposition. I spoke to an agent last week who’d been in conversation with Paul. He jokingly brought up that he’ll be working with Ashton. Needless to say, Cooky wasn’t too impressed. Watch this space on that one I reckon........ 

I do wonder whether Cook might be a short term appointment

Hilarious!  Mark Ashton managed to extend planning permission for the training ground.   What a miracle worker!  😂😂😂. Where would we be without him! 

It’s also not true. The main issue with the training ground was part of the land was owned by Long Ashton golf club. The club and them haggled for ages. 
 

Then SL came in and said he would pay double whatever was needed to ‘make it work’ as a make good

If Sunderland fail to go up via the Play Offs the old band could be fully reunited

I think Cook took the job completely unaware of what was coming next.

Aside from the issue that he applied for our job last summer & was passed over in favour of Holden, like with us, results have been really poor since he came in, but the really big difference between the two is Pearson is about to have the freedom to make some changes, whereas Cook looks like he is completely trapped.

My hunch is that he won’t be there long.

Devils advocate - why would he still be attending games if he’s left? (I’ve heard similar fwiw)

Just out of interest. How can one person be responsible for so many injuries ?

 

I would have thought that even a semi competent person could do at least a half decent job.  Having staff around you, and players used to recoveries and looking after themselves, you would think if someone was woefully bad or out right dangerous they would be called out on it.

 

Just always seems odd that we can pin it all into one man being "not very good"

Has he been attending?  I couldn’t get a confirmation either way....nor have their been the usual photos each match day of him.

He’s been at games aye. Probably playing candy crush rather than watching though.

Thought I’d check out their thoughts on the Ipswich forum, they’re having a right bit of fun bashing us. 
 

Rolls, UNLEASH HELL.

BlueMike on tractor-boys.com is going to be disappointed.

Quoting the OS “Town have appointed Andy Rolls as Director of Performance” he says “Let’s hope this is the end of our ridiculous injury situation”.

Sorry, Mike, you don’t know what a ridiculous injury situation is yet.......!

I read a lot of them jumping to Rolls’ defence is comical ways. They’ll turn on a sixpence after their third injury in three games next season.
