    This is a really interesting point, and one which has come up many times in the various Tisdale debates. It makes me believe there must be some exceptions in employment law relating to fixed term contracts that are used by football clubs, otherwise you'd never be able to get rid of anyone with a two year or more contract, even when it comes to an end.

    I can find info stating that all the knock-out ties in the last 16, quarters and semis are single match affairs.
    Does anyone know if the teams topping their groups get to play their last 16 match at home or is it an open draw?

    I believe it's an open draw. Draw to be made in March.

    I wouldn’t expect employment law to class him as a permanent employee when quite clearly he’s been given a contract for a fixed term. I would imagine this to be the case for contractors in the real world too who work to fixed term contracts otherwise there’d be no such thing as a fixed term contract for anything over two years if that classed you as being permanent.

    I expect football clubs rely extensively on SOSR

    Its difficult to see what that substantial reason would be though. This looks destined to remain a mystery! ��
