And nothing is ever black and white Jeff. I've learnt this evening that efforts were made by the chairman to speak to Duncs when Duncs came back from holiday. Duncs was told by text from Simon while Duncs was away. Simon was informed that him and Duncs were no longer

required.

 

And my friends and relationships with the people of cove come before any bollox on here!

SO can we assume that you had no real friendship with duncs and simon. as you seem to want to stand square, with the people of cove. football is a small world and you never know when paths cross. i saw duncs at the feltham friendly and he not koo, was trying to drive on a poor squad, wonder who knew they would not be at the club long that day. i have had a few cross words with duncs so im not a friend, and i think you have demonstrated, your a friend he could do without.

Agreed JJ. It seems safe to assume from all this that many believe it is okay to accept events from one side without hearing the full story from the other. This is unlikely to happen. I do not understand why it should be beholden for any club to have to justify its actions to any unconnected supporters.

I have a great deal of respect for Duncs and have known him for years. He was sacked whilst on holiday when Cove offered the job to DT on the Wednesday and followed up on the Following Saturday. Duncs was still on holiday at that time! Rumour has it that Cove take money off the youth section to fund the player budget at senior level is that right? Should this be right? Speculation is they have no money.

Speculation is rife, Cove do pay players.....FACT !

 

Some of the players currently playing at Cove will not play for nothing........FACT !

 

Not sure how they get the money tho'..........

Just to put the record straight nobody from Cove has contacted me on this subject I have always contacted them and of course the team is doing better we made some bloody good signings before we were booted out Tucks and Danny Turner to name but 2 and we also had 5 new signings in the pipeline.

WHAT would the point of a forum be if were not to ask questions. i am not sure it matters in this case, what the other story might be. but there actions or non action. does seem to give DUNCS, the moral high ground. and that cant have been said very often.

yes phil I spoke with Phil and Frank and we all agreed that in hindsight we would have all done things differently you see I didn't want the job in thre first place because I simply don't have the time to be a manager an assistant is a completely different animal and that suits me,I know this also applies for Simon as he too is an assistant,the only thing is that now we have to try and get involved elsewhere and that is not easy as there are not to many oppurtunities at the moment

Duncs there will be soon if some clubs don't get their act together, so have a rest for about 1-2 months watch games, watch the CCL tables then they will start looking .........but you don't wanna be manager ?

SHOCKING BEHAVIOUR. from a group of cowards. thats not to say they were not right or wrong. but there are ways to go about things and this was the SNIDE way. this is by no way DT10 fault or buisness, but remember if they have done this once.

on the plus side, at least DUNCS and NG AGREE on something.

 

TF it's not really a case of me and Duncs agreeing, its down to be respectful to two guys who no doubt did their jobs for nothing and for their CLUB. Yossa is right, there is a protocol on how sackings should be done and that's one-to-one not by phone, text, e-mail that's a cowards way out simoply 'cos they do not want to hear what the sacked manager may have to say in his DEFENCE, if they can be bothered that is. Clubs will have more respect from potential managers if things are done in the correct manner. Now because of Cove's actions, you will read such comments as...''done it once .... DT beware !'' etc., etc.,

 

By the way DT this is in no way derogatory towards your goodself. The job became available, you applied, you were accepted.

 

You've done well winning your first 2 games...............Good Luck for the future.

 

I posted some while ago what's happening at Cove and got slated for my comments asking whats happening at Cove , but now perhaps those personel can have a re-think ..... apologies accepted !

 

 

NG, you make it sound like you are the CCL know-it-all and that anything rumour wise you say seems to come true.

 

The fact is that you took a wild guess at the possibility there were problems at Cove and are now suggesting you knew it was all happening.

 

It doesnt take a brain scientist to assume that when a club punches way above its weight for so long, and with a manager and players with high expectation levels, that soon enough things are bound to change for the worse.

 

Koo and Duncs took Cove as far as they could, which is why the more senior players and manager ended up moving on.

 

It could easily have gone the opposite way if one or two things had happened that didnt (which i wont say on here).

Cove may even have been contenders for a top 3 place. Thats just how close it was. In the end, it went the way it did and now Cove are rebuilding with new players, a new management team and a fresh outlook.

 

Koo and Duncs were at Cove for 4 seasons and in that time Cove finished 4th, 6th, 12th and 9th. Three cup finals and 2 trophies.

 

Thats a pretty decent record at any level.

 

And yes, the way the sacking happened was not right but as I am friends with the people at Cove. I wont comment any more on it.

 

Me thinks you know a little bit more then your letting on Johnno.

 

Come clean spill the beans
