Bob : I’m not entirely sure I understand the concept of a rolling hourly contract , but its certainly something I’m prepared to consider and this clause here , Katrien , the one that says – Clause 1.6 in the event that the aforesaid manager finishes below halfway in the championship , then his contract will be deemed to have been immediately terminated and here Clause 168.3 in the event that the aforesaid manager finishes at halfway or indeed anywhere above halfway , then his contract will be deemed to have been immediately terminated.
Katrien : Hang on a minute Bob , its a very important question which I will need to check with Mr Duchatelet
Katrien to Roland is hushed phone call ” Roly ,its me- he managed to spot the two termination clauses even though they were 383 pages apart. I tried my best , but I’m really worried now he might pick up on that one about all new players having to come from clubs that have the capital letters S & L or U & D in their names or from Divisions at least 6 below the one we currently play in, let alone the compulsory player transfers from the new club in Papua New Guinea .
Roland : Katrien ma Cherie , As the great Belgian Eric Cantona once said ‘ when the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the water’
Roly , are you in a bar again whilst I’m stuck here with this man – have you seen the size of him , he’s enormous. His head was outside the Boardroom window at eye level when he arrived in the car park …………… to be continued
