    It's actually not. Most rolling contracts simply renew for the same duration at the end of the contract unless either party give the agreed upon notice period. I suspect that is what his is but, without seeing the contract, no one can say for sure.

    A depleted squad that had Larsson, Lambert, Petrov, Lubo, Stubbs, Thompson and Mjalby in it. On top of them competent players like Boyd, McNamara and Agathe. All of them to build on top of. Who do we have to build on next season? Forrest, Jullien, Taylor, Klimala, Soro and Turnbull. Whoever comes in is in for a * of a job.

    If he wakes up to a new 1-year contract every day, then that means his contract also expires every night. So they could just file his termination on the stroke of midnight and not owe him anything in this ridiculous scenario.

    Of course, that's not how contracts work in the real world. A 1-year rolling contract means it renews at the end of the one year term automatically, unless it's requested otherwise by either party.

    This just highlights were we are financially. Paying some one off for a couple of million should be short change for a BIG club. Keeping him on is costing the club more with the fans. Surely cost benefit analysis will highlight this. We must have very little capital for this not to happen. The future looks bleak

    More doom and gloom.. why does the future look bleak mate? We have had a bad season, I can assure you I have seen worse.

    A clear out is needed and a rebuild is a must.. we became complacent and hopefully this is a big * wake up call.

    Some of us fans need the take the blame too.We sat by and watched this board appoint Lennon. We were so far ahead of the scum, maybe we thought it didn't matter that we appointed a moron as a manger.. a man that walked away when he thought he could do better elsewhere, a man that failed at Hibs and Bolton.. A man that is so unprofessional he makes Borris Johnson look competent.. not even going to go into his personal issues.

    Yes this season is an absolute * but I don't see how the future is bleak...

    * all from the club and he's still here. Having to face Huns every day in work, getting shot of this * would at least give me something to fight back with.

    Can't see him going until the league is officially over . Even then I think he will still get to the end of the season

    Its quite simple for the Board, as we all know (but they don't for some reason), just sack him and get a decent replacement pronto, the longer this goes on the uglier it will get.

    The club has obviously decided fairly early in the season that the payout for sacking him during the season isn't a price they are willing to pay

    That's why we are stuck with a sullen joker in the dugout that,like fat sally,Sally, hanging on for the last big cheque of his life

    I don't think it's just down to money though. I've heard a couple of times he's still there because DD didn't want to sack him. Apparently DD stepped in and stopped him getting sacked in December. Dont know if its true though

    I can no longer stomach watching games whilst he's in charge.

    I've got better things to do that are genuinely better for mental health then * watch this * imposter parade about like he can coach a game of football.

    * every single * involved in creating this calamity.

    Do not underestimate the effect a competent manager can have.

    I mean ffs Rodgers had us go an invincible treble and who did we have in goal and defence exactly?

    For my that's the most probable explanation. We all know how big his ego is. The only reason why Rodgers was hired was his hurt ego when the hun bosses danced after their cup win against us. He only holds around 22% of our stocks if I'm right, why to we let this * hijack our club?

    And most contracts don’t work like they do in football.

    Its why we don’t announce every season we’re taking up the contract again for the next season. It’s why Rodgers was given a 4 year deal instead of just an increased wage on a rolling contract. If a team wanted him when he was on his rolling contract they would only have had to pay the years salary.

    It’s the exact same contract McCoist had, without the full salary/wage cut scenario.

    They’ve been about in football for years.

    We have 720 min left of this deluded turnip in charge if he is here until the final game of the season.
    Tick tock......
    Not a chance he will be here next season.

    Don't know why the board can't come out and say he's staying till the end of the season, at least we will know he's going. Which he probably will be anyway but, it puts our minds at ease abit.

    He had a much fitter Brown protecting the defence, Lustig was still pretty good at that point, Tierney, Boyata is better than Duffy and Bitton, Simunovic probably was too and Gordon despite his * ups was better than Barkas and Bain.
