“A bloke down the pub said.....” is the very definition of #fakenews.

He didn't offer his resignation. There is ongoing dialogue between the board and the manager but he's committed to turning things round they remain supportive.

Boring I know...
As I said the other day I would give NA the next 4 games to show us he can turn it around,without his normal cautious starting line up,get 6 points with some entertainment or leave !

Last chance
Isn't Warburton going to Burnely as technical director?

Alex the full quote though was that things have to change or they will probably be changed by others, that does sound like someone who is considering this is the end, wouldn't surprise me at all if he did offer to leave at that point. Maybe not hand in resignation but at least say do you want me to go.

I don't think the second half would have blinded anyone on coaching side that we're still not performing.
Ardley has said things have to change but words are cheap. Let's see if they do change with the team and formation tomorrow.

I will believe it when I see it. His interview this week is the same as past weeks.
Spit - i'm not too sure NA would have tried to resign after Pompey. Perhaps after Plymouth or another game? If we had played like we did the first half against Pompey the whole game, maybe! But in all fairness we absolutely battered the top team in the 2nd half and ended the game unlucky not to have got something out of it.

Plus Ardley was immediately interviewed within 15 mins after the game on BBC London radio and although he said things have got to change etc he was talking about Monday and the following week as though he'd still definitely be manager.
Tiki would agree that is a possibility here, OI I'm nowhere near as cynical as some on here. I meant what I said literally, it wasn't a sarcastic comment, I genuinely could see people who are cynical could view it that way.

NA is clearly looking for a new job now. The fact he can tell his prospective employer that he resigned and it was rejected adds a bit of value to him. Part of me wonders if the club want another club to approach him so we get some compensation.

May be a bit more to this story than him simply offering his resignation
OI, the club come out and give us information and clarity haha

[204.lo.gg.ed] 
That's a good one
Thank you OI. Not so much had enough of him Kentish but I do think he's dug himself a hole he'll struggle to get out of this time.

The players who could turn things round have all departed
It is clearly 'true' now, even if Ardley and the club come out and deny it.

power of the man in the pub
Well if NA handed in his resignation and the club rejected it, we can hardly have a go at NA anymore.

That is truly shocking if that is true in that case.

Could you be more cynical Lurker? Perhaps you could suggest Ardley has been ordered to lose matches so that the arguments about him rage on?

Welcome back STTA, a dose of common sense on the way?

please
If I was more cynical I'd wonder if keeping NA gives the fans someone else to focus on to pick at and avoid the "disjoin" between club and fans.

CL that is what I was saying with that, so I think we're saying the same thing.

Laurence, I was only pointing out that Warburton was.

Stir that pot
Lurker, I don't agree with the dont/wont and cant. Some people at the club are reluctant to hand power over.

Chigs - there were loads of managers and coaches at the game due to no Championship or Premier League Games.

Spit, as I say i heard the same thing. I believe it is true and Ardley did resign but it was rejected.

Mark Warburton was also at the game
Kentish by the sound of it he doesn’t have to be forced out the board would have to be forced to let him go. What are the novelty floodlights? Project images of “club legends” onto the pitch?

none of that would surprise me and Wu’s info makes a lot of sense. Another example of too few people are doing too many things at the club? In a different club the owner would have people handling the stadium and the football side separately. We don’t/won’t/can’t.
