It was me who said about the 4 years on the contract. I talked about whether they could afford to, as he was supposed to be on a good salary as well, or whether the cost of lost season ticket sales (he was already having a significant effect if their forum is to be believed) with Derek Adams and being in L2 meant they had to.Who on here said he wouldn't get the sack as he's got four years left on contract
The suggestion is the previous owner, who signed Adams up to the contract, gave it as a "leaving" present as he was looking to get out anyway so it was very favourable to Adams. Adams was also in a strong negotiating position as well considering promotion and then getting into the play offs (or near them, can't remember which) in their 1st L1 season.Somebody on 5 Live the other week was explaining that in many cases if a manager is sacked it is written into the contract that they are 'only ' entitled to one years salary, regardless if the length of contract left.
So the example given was Alan Pardew who was given a 10 year contract at Newcastle but didn't last that long. He wasnt entitled to 8 years salary or however long was left on his contract.
I suspect that the contracts are written differently but doubt if Adams is entitled to 4 years salary.
Argyle are probably not a big enough draw for MAPP as they apparently have a rather limited budget and they always struggle to bring players down there due to their geographical position - I am sure their fans would be delighted to have him but would be surprised if it appealed to him - big come down from Leicester - Holloway and Keith Hill are suggested as they have connections with Argyle then its the usual suspects like Evans and Hurst who get mentions with every appointment nowMichael Appleton would be a good choice for Argyle.
He would need to be given time though, the type of manager who builds a club.
Appleton needed a season at Oxford before we started to see the benefits of the ground work. Would be a good fit at Plymouth if the fans & board are prepared to be patient.
Whoever goes there will probably not have a great knowledge of the current squad and yet clearly a rebuilding job will be needed regardless of which division they are in next season.
