    The manager will have no impact on Mihai. I think it would still be a board decision to sign him if he is affordable. They see him as a potential sellable asset going by GS' interview with Raman last week.

    How do you know everything is fact by the news article? There will be some things that can't be spoken of due to legalities, though it's not a certainty that it's all a one sided disagreement

    It never stopped him going for interview with Dundee a couple of weeks ago.
    Goody is a smart guy and most likely wanted to test himself at a lower level before taking on the positioned chalice. At least he has a couple of years experience now with promotion and survival at Alloa.
    In my opinion, the time is right. Lesser qualified men have managed a bigger club at this level. He loves the club, has the passion,the honesty when things are not going right. He also knows what it's like to win silverware and handle the pressures of battling at the wrong end of the table both as player and manager.

    A lot of people with short memories on here this week. When the current board took over we'd just finished 6th in the Championship and they'd inherited Alex Rae as manager.

    3 years on a league title and Premiership status retained....

    As has been covered previously. Commuting to & from Belfast is NOT simply “ 10 minutes to Airport and a 35 minute flight “ If you can make that journey ( Training ground to home ) in 45 minutes I’ll happily buy you beers for the rest of the year .

    As I said , it’s nearer 2 1/2 to 3 hours each way . And that’s without delays.

    My flight home from Belfast City airport , from leaving hotel to landing two weeks ago took 4 hours 15 mins. Not counting travel home from airport.

    It’s also been well publicised that OK wants to increase the amount he commutes. Do you know for a fact this is wrong? 
    Actually they don’t necessarily, BoD privilege exists in companies that have shares or ownerships with large groups of individuals. I’m a shareholder at Tesco & a member of the Nationwide building society. Does that mean I should be kept informed of every legal process their BoD explores?
    Does a holding statement have an impact on anyone’s life or could we just as easily wait? 
    More unfounded garbage.

    If something has become a legal matter as mentioned today in the papers, surely you can understand the club cannot comment directly to fans until this is resolved. 
    To me, it seems like they have considered decisions, looking at the long term and questioning the managers commitment. They have shown leadership by taking action.
    I lik Oran, he brought that same feel good factor unity that JR did, though whatever happens, the board are acting in the clubs best interests. They may be businessman, though they are also fans like the rest of us.

    He was asked by the media prior to our two playoff games about the Coleraine vacancy and he didn't really deny any interest, or show any sorts of indication that this is where he wanted to be long term. He said at the time, my main focus is these two playoff games. 
    From the newspapers today, its revealed his old PE job is still open for another 3 months and tying that in with the vacancy at Coleraine, you can't help but think he would want to return to that and think the only way he can have anywhere near close to that family time over here, is to ask to commute daily, which i completely stand with board on this one. It is completely unreasonable at club level to have that flexibility. 
    People can compare the commute in duration all they like with mainland ones, though this is completely different and would most likely restrict a lot of the work that is required of a fulll-time football manager. 
    Being a family man myself, I can completely understand OK must be finding it difficult with time away from his wife and kids and respect he is putting family first, though it doesnt seem to have ended in a nice way.
    I think GS has every right to question the manager he employs about long-term commitment. It says that after requesting a daily commute he came to a compromise of a couple of days a week again, though, that clearly showed he would first and foremost wish to travel home more often rather than think to settling here permanently.

    I believe, for once, we are not at fault.
    Oran wanted a year in the big playground. He had it.
    But it finished in May and he should have returned to his Teaching Job and Coleraine FC then.
    No way should there be an additional pay off.
    He done his stint and was paid what he was due.
    Is there an Agent lurking, being a greedy cnut  ?
    Give him feck all, Gordon.
