Jack Ross has spoken to ............

Recommended Posts


Personally, like what seems on here one of the few realists, I accepted after the Barnsley debacle Ross would be off this summer, so no great surprise, or indeed surprise as to where as I had suggested to all my Sunderland supporting in-laws he wouldnt be a bad shout for League One.

what is still surprising is the amount of posters who think these situations are all normally done by following some sort of Marquis of Queensberry rule book! Its business, its dirty, fast and the decision makers get their man, the procrastinators get somebody else. How many managers can we all quote that a club have been done for by the authorities for them tapping up??? 

The other staggering thing is the level of compo some people believed we would get for someone on say £50-75k basic a year??? Who on earth would agree to it being more than one years salary, if the manager in question even had a year left on his contract? Figures of £300k etc just arent realistic. Next moves will be interesting, will our board be able to move as swiftly as Sunderland have in a matter of days and give the new manager as much time as possible to prepare for the new season?

Appreciate your honesty, and the irony of the fact you can follow someone into the sin bin to level stupid, mindless personal abuse.... and the mods dont give a flying..!

meet the new forum, just like the old forum.

Doubt he'll be interviewed for it - same as he's not been interviewed for the Sunderland job. He might well apply for it though, then phone the club to check they've received his application and then his agent will tell everyone "Jack has spoken to Derby" :rolleyes: 


Seriously clubs like Sunderland have no scope for a manager that gets more than 50% of his signings so wrong, and who's contact list saw him sending out a LinkedIn appeal for players.


I'm lost for words

Logic would point to it being true as it will have been based on 6-12 months of basic Salary.  So if Ross was on at his third pay rise £50 - £100k then its probably six months worth of that....

in reality, what manager feeling he is/will be in demand would agree a compo clause for several times annual basic? It would put off suitors, and wouldnt be a realistic level of compo against the cost of replacing someone on the same wages. T.I.S. This Is St Mirren, we are well known as a club to get a goid deal out of for transfers etc...

I think it's either that or someone has been spinning lies about a new contract in February. Nothing offical came from the club.

So u tell me why would they except £50.000 when £300.000 was agreed with Ipswich 

Because he won't sign for Ipswich.

 

You do realise that by using a full stop rather than a comma your figures read fifty pounds and 300 pounds?

Tony has came out and said no contract was signed in February apparently. 

You dont have to sign an improvement i.e. Higher wages, and given the level of compo it probably backs up there wasnt a complete new contract offered/accepted.

if our board had any brains they would have offered a new contract, agreed Ross's compo clause, but insisted on their new clause if he whores himself around whilst on holiday again the compo fee is trebled! C'mon a bit of light in the shade lol.

You do, in contract law, he would of had to sign to the change in terms. What Jack Ross was making in January was the same as what he was making in March- May. Same goes for the compensation. Would of been great if he signed a new deal that protected us more but I can see his point in not doing it.
