Big feature on Mark Ashton's role at Bristol City
https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/foo ... ke-3195183

It's all in the past now, but Ashton leaving OUFC in Jan 2016 did seem to be the start of the end of the good times under Eales/Ashton/Appleton, although we went on to win promotion and then have those great cup runs in the 2017 season, it seems the cost cutting and club available for sale started not long after Ashton left.

I think those things started when someone was allegedly caught with his pants down and the costs of divorce became apparent.

Former OUFC defender (79 appearances between 1988 and 1990) Jimmy Phillips is in temporary charge at Bolton Wanderers following the resignation of Phil Parkinson. If the protracted takeover continues to drag on, it wouldn't surprise me at all if that becomes a longer-term appointment. Can't see too many established managers clamouring for the job in the current context.

Somehow we missed Gary Waddock becoming assistant manager to Kevin Bond at Southend in July! He's now caretaker manager ...
