Fair play to him for the payment of staff from his own pocket, otherwise a total arse of a man.
You were right about his managerial capabilities.
As well as the staff thing he did a lot of good PR (public relations not player relations!) and community stuff while here. Came across very well early on. Imagine Megson doing that? Having said all that Megson would probably have kept us up and that's what really counts when judging a manager.

I might be like me & the Mrs. If I vetoed every dress, coat, pair of shoes she expressed an interest in then I'd do bugger-all else when in town. I only REALLY express a proper view of the ones she seems like progressing. Even that is muted until I think she means it. Up to then I stick with "mmmm..... yes ...... aaaah .....".

It saves a lot of time ... and angst.
Absolutely this, but also with a dollop of PG having other things on his mind at the time to be on top of cash flow.

Lennon has not had an easy ride and I do feel sorry for him in some ways, but...he hasn't come close to making proper use of what he had and he seems to fall out with/berate players in public. He deserves to go.

It is the right decision. Timing a bit odd, but shows some serious intent as I assume they've found the money to pay him off.

of course you did!! :lol:

so - "mutual consent" - what does that actually mean? Does it mean we are still paying him squillions to pay off his contract - or - if he is agreeing to go - we're not sacking him... or does it mean they've done a deal to not pay him as much as he might have been paid if he didn't consent?

I usually take "mutual Consent" (althought I may be wrong) to mean, they've come to a deal about how much they'll pay the exitee, rather than having to sack them and argue about compensation. I'm guessing his leaving fee is 2 x "Panic Fanny" t-shirts and access to the mobile phone numbers of a few slappers from the Chorley new Road area and a lifetimes membership to Fannys Bar :twisted:

delighted by the news. i also like that whoever the new bloke is he will get plenty of games to assess his squad before the summer, determine who can stay, who can go, and where we need to recruit etc... they wont be expected to keep us up but a few wins will be a bonus... thats assuming Jimmy isnt in the running and he's just been asked to fill in till end of the season. not regretting buying that Brentford away ticket so much now...

I think we're close enough to the end of the season - and in such a hopeless league position - that it's worth waiting for the summer. I doubt there'll be many suitable managers jumping into permanent positions right now.

Lennon gets to walk away,without a relegation on his cv! Mjalby appears,now to have been the backbone of any success he,ll claim to have had whilst here.

In the rush to congratulate SS, has anyone considered that Lennon may have been the instigator? You know, like "Deano, i'm well f*cked off with this, hows about doing a deal? "

I think thats about right - been dragged in to be told we're loaning players out, cant play spearing, and he's walked. Either a clever move to avoid compo or SS have feck all cash! Jimmys playing the kids...

As if he's walked without a pay off.

More like they've told him to feck off when he started moaning. Gravy train stops here.

Clearly not true, some would like to carry on with complete speculation that fits their answer.

I really hope Lennon did walk without being pushed, if that makes it cheaper. Sounds like we've not even got a pot to piss in, perhaps not even the cardboard box that the pot came in.

Just speculating that if we'd sacked him we might have used a phrase something like "we've sacked him".

The "Skysports" bloke outside the Macron said earlier that it wasn't mutual but that Lennon had been sacked?

Same principle as not disclosing transfer dealings...keeps us inthe dark.

I just think it means they've come to an agreement for him to leave without litigation or extended compensation haggling. So not technically sacked as that would involve a big payoff, rather a mutual agreement that avoids that but gives him a bit more than he might get after we are relegated. If they asked him if he'd prefer to leave now with a bit of cash rather than flog a dead horse for 4-5 games before being booted anyway for a lesser sum I reckon he'd be daft not to take it.

Mutual consent means an agreement over the terms of the exit was reached. Football clubs rarely use the term 'sacked'. Usually parted company or left after mutual agreement.
