Out of interest, how exactly does "by mutual consent actually work"?

Chairman: "We don't want you anymore."
Manager: "Good, I didn't want to stay anyway."
Chairman: "So, it's agreed by mutual consent you can **** off."

It's always "mutual consent" these days, managers are never "sacked" anymore. It basically means the club have paid the manager the rest of their contract and agreed to call it mutual consent as sacking sounds more negative.

Will certainly be keeping an eye on this one, I'm sure Brown will be in Bolton's thoughts. If he did leave I'd be confident in Penney and Coughlan taking over.

Wasn't Brown like 5th or 6th favourite for Palace job? I wouldn't read too much into this.

Ah, suddenly it makes sense why Brown somehow got into the frame for the Palace job.

He was positioning himself for the Bolton job, a club where he has substantial links.

Latest odds for Brown are 33 to 1. Not top of the betting pecking order at the moment. Hopefully, Brown will still be with us for the season and taking us up to Division 1. That would be nice wouldn't it?

Now 7/2 fav with Ladbrokes to take the job, heard quite a bit of money has been staked.
