I would be amazed if Rovers have to pay off the full amount of the contract, they must have some kind of break clauses in there, for example 6 months pay. Anything else and they would be insane to sign such a contract and sack him 3 months later.
They could have been REALLY insane and given him a 2yr roller. Ooops!

If you listen carefully to either his last, or the one before, interview you will realise that he has done just that.
He's provided an explanation of kinds, but I'm not sure it stands up to a great deal of scrutiny.

I agree wholeheartedly with those who said Tis got an easy ride from the press. Ironically, in the long-term, I don't think it helped him 'cause, as we've seen increasingly over recent years, he gets really arsey when anyone has the temerity to ask him an entirely legitimate question.

With that in mind, I'd hope the media don't pussyfoot around Matt. He might not be overly thrilled to be grilled on Ajose, amongst other things, but I reckon it would stand him in good stead in years to come.
