So my understanding of a rolling contract (after a bit of googling) is that the contract runs for a year then it gets renewed for another year if all parties are in agreement. So any idea what date is renewal time?

Nope that would be a contract rolled over.

A rolling one never reduces or increases in time remaining.

Alot of confusion over Allys rolling deal i always thought it meant it went from one summer ti the next when both party's sat down agreed if they wanted to renew it then signed and there's another year. If that was the case its simple Wallace just tells Ally we are not renewing your deal. However i saw something yesterday about Allys always got a year on his deal no matter what time of year it is. I don't understand that or why we would agree to that as it gives Ally all the benefits and us all the problems of being liable for a years pay off no matter when we decide to sack/not renew his deal.

Such agreements aren't uncommon in the wider business world, especially among the executive class.

Gives the recipient a measure of security, but it 's capped at a max of 12 months money.

As opposed to, say, Pardew at Newcastle - imagine paying him off 3 years into an 8 year deal!

Someone said his contract today will be from 14/4/14 to 14/4/15 tomorrow it will be 15/4/14 it 15/4/15 and so on

This is what I thought it was (prior to my bit of googling about what a normal rolling contract is), so Ally must have got that clause inserted into his contract when he negotiated it with SDM?

So it would cost us around 400k to sack Ally?

That's not it I don't think? That would be the same as a years written notice, which surely can't be legal. I reckon every year he'll sit down at some point and renew for another year. Anyway, ally perhaps should go to avoid another "Greig" tag. But whilst he's in the hot seat he'll get my support

i don't care how skint we are, that's doable, particularly as a sensible replacement will cost far less. I absolutely don't buy this "we can't afford to sack him" stuff. It's a lack of balls, not money, that's the problem here.

If its not going to push us close or into admin i say get it done, unless Allys already told the board he's stepping down (which i doubt)

That should be about the level of it, but I gather from on here that, in return for his pay-cut, he got an enhanced 'back-end'. ( Apologies if I've got that wrong).

Lots are saying we can 't afford to pay him off but, unless it's agreed otherwise, I don't see why we can't pay him off over the year, so it won 't hurt the cashflow so much.

You quite often hear of clubs still paying managers who left years before - why not us?

That's what clubs mean when they say the manager has been put on "gardening leave" isn't it? Yeah anything just to get us out of this perennial rut Ally has put us in.

Yeah i can kind of see why we got it but at this point a normal 3 year deal would have been almost up and we could simply have told Ally we will not be offering him a new deal.

Yeah, I totally agree. Ally has been very cute in getting that clause inserted. He must've known there was a chance he'd flop and he got that clause inserted to guarantee himself a payoff.

Great idea! But would that prevent him from taking up his inevitable cheeky chappy TV gig?

It's not really a clause, it's a type of contract designed, primarily, to allow a club to get rid of a manager easily. It's very common. It's only our ridiculous finances which mean we have to think twice about paying up a years money.
