Another player Rowe has signed who clearly didn't sign because he wanted to play for the club. Quite frankly we will be better off without him and arguably we should have just let him go in the first place.

If a footballer refuses to play what can be done about it? I wonder what happened if I went into work and refused to do my job?

Yeah seems to be something only footballers can get away with..

Alex perhaps alluded to this in his interview, not specifically who or what the issue was but it was something that the new manager would resolve.
On the upside, it's one less problem for the new manager to deal with, frees up a wage and presumably gives him that bit more flexibility to bring in who he wants

Last thing you want is some precious flower causing unrest when the new manager is trying to settle in.

You’d be sacked. No employee should be bigger than his or her employer. It’s that simple.

Exactly. I guess that's basically what's happened here too.

Difference is, in our lives you'd have to search hard and apply for a new job, have an interview, explain why you were sacked, and hope you got the job. In the life of a semi-professional football, I guess you just need to text a couple of texts off to people you've worked with before, and you're in.

Interesting to see if he ends up at Chesterfield after that clause in the Asante deal. Would certainly suggest he's been tapped up if so.

Hopefully the clause was city registered players as of xxxxxxx. Given what Alex has said about Chesterfield being professional throughout it would be a bit of a kick in the teeth if he did end up there

It's a shame, he’s a good player, his brother was/is supporting the club through the Gloucester lottery, suggesting he had bought into the project not the manager. Maybe he got fed up of the commute, but the timing of the “injury” suggests otherwise.

There's a bloke on the Chesterfield forum who seems very in the know (and is possibly James Rowe) who says Carline will be signing for them. The poster, called The Whistler, registered for their forum on the same day JR was first linked to Chesterfield.
