Surely if he resigned he wasnt entitled to a pay off.

That's my take on it too. He can't just say "I'm away and also you owe me the remainder of my contract."

good observation  - completely agree about the last 12 months.  He ran out of ideas and really struggled, hence resigned.  

Had he left for a bigger job 12 months previous (NI job) he'd be hailed as one of the best gaffers we've ever had.   He did well for us over the piece, a good guy who did in the main did good things , eventually ran out of ideas and out of decent signings. 

I’m sure the link with the NI job was in summer 2020, just six months before he left. He was linked with the Hearts vacancy late Oct/early Nov 2019.
 

But you are correct in saying that he had ran out of ideas by the end, in fact he ran out long before the end. It was obvious just a few weeks into 20/21 that we were going nowhere, home losses to Accies & Utd, a loss at Ross County and Coleraine taking us to penalties in the EL. And there was that ridiculous run of us not scoring a single equalising goal from August until the end of January last year, when Robinson had left.

Im completely with you.  For me Robinson falls into the same category as Mcall , McGhee (first time) in as much they  had a decent spell where things went well but not able to really take the club forward in the long term, made too many poor signings and ran out of ideas. 

Short term  able to a  job but will run out of ideas and frankly won't go on to bigger or better things as are limited in their capability.

No surprise in that decision. Morecombe going down the tubes under Robinson, Adams leaves the Bantams and is now available to the club he got promoted. Cue some diddy club from Scotland offering £100,000 for Robinson, kerching, kerching, oot you go Robbo, come back in Derek. Morecambe must have thought that they had won the lottery.:D

And St Mirren losing at home for the first time since October.

Do they have a new manager or something?

St.Mirren losing benefits us so that’s pleasing. Livingston winning doesn’t as it puts them on the same points as us but ahead on GD so it’s us and the both of them on 34 points.

St Mirren have 5 away matches from 7 including Rangers, Celtic and us.

It's all too close for me, 5 points separating 4th to 10th there is  no room for error, but after tomorrow  the Ross County and Dundee games are massive 6 points from those 2 would just about secure the top 6 finish and a shot at Europe

Every game a cup final from now to the split

3 years ago this week James Scott scored this thoroughly enjoyable goal vs Celtic. Even though we got pumped it's still great to see them so wound up.

And my best ever tweet of "whit's Gboly dae'n Tom?" got double figures of retweets. What a day.

Also, James Scott acting like he didn't know what the big deal was was priceless, and only trumped by the fact Gboly scored the goal but got none of the stick:-)

Alan Campbell probably up against Chelsea tonight (unless Luton do that thing that Championship sides do where they rest players in the FA cup), a good showing here would be great for him.

Did Campbell go on a "deal" after his contract ran out or was it done through the tribunal method?

Burrows said at the time:

"We have reached a compromise that is both fair in the short-term but also allows Motherwell the potential to share in future success, should Allan’s career continue in the same upward trajectory."

Some sort of sell on clause you'd imagine.

Interestingly, Luton Town have a policy of not announcing the length of contract for each of their new signings so unclear when his current deal runs out.

I think Luton actually signed Campbell just before his contract expired. So that let both parties put together a good deal.

Good to see it's working out for him so far.
