BOOM, well the pressure is definitely going to be on the OTIB collective next season.

Ashton and Rolls were the problem as per the general wisdom?

Or not?

We'll find out.

No it will be SL next because apparently he let this all unfold.

This is a positive step towards Pearson being manager permanently.

Can't see a link personally.

Although the timing of it is a bit strange with 2 games of the season left.

Somethings afoot and it aint 12 inches.

We don't really do particularly nasty partings do we?

Lansdown almost declared 4 days mourning when he sacked Gary Johnson. 

I'm still waiting for news on if we released Nikko Maenpaa!

I don’t know if there is a link and can only guess a very strong personality/influence has insisted enough is enough and maybe no Head of Performance is better than having the ex one in post. How has it got to this, seriously?

As this whole saga unfolds, I have a horrible feeling that we are seeing in slow-motion the effects of Ashton being left to run the day-to-day operation.

Rolls position was never allowed to be questioned before, injuries, contracts were not allowed to be discussed etc. Its like he fell asleep at the wheel, or maybe his focus was elsewhere.

Surely the almost inexplainable decision to appoint Dean Holden by Mark Ashton was not done in order to eat up a bit of time before the Ipswich deal was done? Anyone else appointed other than Holden with the necessary football experience would surely have questioned some of our decisions sooner, as Pearson is no doubt doing, and has done recently.

Of course this may well not be the case but Rolls leaves immediately and I may be way-off but there was and is still no viable footballing explanation to appoint Dean Holden after six weeks of looking.

Agreed, Ashton had this Ipswich deal ticking away/on the cards a long time ago.
Bristol City have suffered because of it. Blatantly obvious to most IMO.
