Yeah that was the rumour. Allegedly over the increase in training. The rumour at the time, that I heard anyway, was that they were unhappy with the additional sessions and the increase in fitness training. Both ended up transfer listing. Zander retired due to injury and Anderson, you could argue, was made an example of. It ended in our best league 2 season in over 15 years, so not exactly the wrong choice.
I heard it was over the change in style of play in the famous 12 game end of season slump. Either way there had to be some sort of disagreement.
Oh definitely, I mean it could be a "all of the above" scenario.
With the snippets of information that comes out it's like we're meant to think that DF came in and decided to just pick on Anderson and Diamond for no reason. Anderson is not going to come out and admit anything that sheds himself in a bad light, he has a young family and giving any hint he's a troublemaker can limit clubs willing to sign him.
Part and parcel of football is a new manager comes in and usually wants to change most of the squad. Look at Evans, he signed a shed load of players, and ended up having to go back to the Murray signings that were still under contract. When Evans left he signed Rhys Bennett, who was a Murray signing. DF came in and transfer listed 5 or 6 players in the summer. JD released 3 players and signed some good players, to be fair, but we couldn't last longer than 60 minutes in a game. GC came in and signed some players and sent some out on loan. Anderson should have took his transfer listing like a man and found a new club club ASAP. This didn't happen, and I'm sorry but I refuse to believe that nobody wanted Paul Anderson in their side.
