Good luck Pierce Sweeney, he was always prepared to try something and was never dull.

Indeed. The season started with the disrespectful way that MT treated Sweeney (stripped of squad number, made to train with the youth team) and has ended with both Sweeney and his closest friend Jake Taylor deciding to leave Exeter City.
Andrew, you've made this point re the manager's style causing players to leave several times. Personally I dont believe there is a link. Players leave for a range of personal and professional reasons but I would think petulance at the way a manager has managed them would be pretty low on the list.

Odd choice of move. If I was a footballer and looking for somewhere that would be best for my young family I wouldn't choose a club that could be the next Bury.

I do think Andrew's point has some validity but ultimately if MT is expecting more from senior players in big games and they're not meeting his expectation then that is the manager's prerogative. Time will tell if MT can recruit players that fit that mould.
