    Sounds like McShufty may have been right.

    Maybe I'm reading that wrong but it sounds like that is down to Doyle not Robins? Reads as the other players got told they up for moves and let everyone know via the group chat, Doyle got told and only told his close mates.

    Don't really know how to interpret it, that's just what happened
    Most of his team mates were as surprised as us

    Feel gutted for him if he had no choice in the matter and wasn't consulted with prior to the decision being made for him to go, especially if he wanted to stay.

    I'm not being sentimental or living off his past glories, I feel Doyle could have contributed in a positive way on the pitch and also off it.
    Hope he gets a testimonal

    Officially, sure, but the reality is you can be frozen out and he obviously wanted to play.

    He had been poor this season though. Clearly struggling at this higher level.

    Obvious how? He got dropped when mistakes started creeping into his average at best performances and Robins finally realised you can't build a L1 team around a player that slow.
    He wanted to play every week, he wasn't going to get that here in L1 and we've been good enough to release him from his contract so that his career doesn't end in a damp fizzle with the promise of coaching when he's done playing. And he's managed to get himself an 18 month contract. Sounds like a bloody good deal for everyone.

    The captain of our team and influential in getting us up last season, the way he's been treated is a joke. Could deffo still do a job for us

    I am massive Doyle fan bit it was clear this year that time had caught up with him.
    Cost us at least 2 goals with mis placed passes as he tired in games and his lack of mobility was pulling other players too deep in order to cover for him.
    Really hope he comes back on the coaching staff and proves worthy of a crack at the mangers job one day but his CCFC playing career was clearly over.

    See, I'd definitely say there was a place for him in the squad, if not a regular starter.

    But... surely Ogogo was signed to replace him anyway? So not like it#'d have been a shock when he lost his place in the team, surely? Even more so as Kelly was then fit, so a replacement was there and ready to go.

    Doyle is a CCFC legend - end of!
    Notts County manager in before & after match interviews keeps calling him Doyley for fuck sake (table mat or something like that) - I expect Doyler to put him right on that one!
    Ardley Noooo! Its Doyler not fucking Doily.. :emoji_angry:

    The way he's been treated? He was kept in the team week in week out as he performances got worse and he cost us goals. Its not like he was MOTM every week and Robins suddenly chucked him out the side.

    Think he means in terms of this allegation that Doyle didn't want to leave and was begging to stay, but was 'forced' out.

    He will manage Coventry City one day, might be sooner than we think.

    Same way he was forced out when he went to Sheff Utd when he wasn't first choice in his original spell here? People seem to have forgotten about him describing his loan at Leeds as The 'best year of my life'.

    I like Doyle but I thought we were right to let him go the first time and it was the right time again now. The way some people are carrying on is embarrassing. Never thought we'd top the histrionics over Baker but I've been proved wrong.

    Yup, but McShufty said it and then a couple of people on here have said the same thing. Doyle didn't want to go and was forced to leave.

    Doesn't make it true of course

    But what if he was? Robins has to manage the squad as he sees fit.
    I'm sure one day Doyle will be a manager and he will have unpopular decisions to make.

    Yeah, I know, but this is all combined with the supposed falling out between the two.

    weren't they supposed to have fallen out due to Doyle getting a drink driving conviction?
    Hasn't that turned out to be bollocks?

    Yep. That was. But others have said something different to the drink driving suggestion.

    Not saying I believe any of it personally.

    ...enter pantomime villain to a chorus of boos. He makes a snidey remark, and exits stage with a smug look on his face. Only later did he realise his error in leaving a superfluous 'r' in the middle of the former managers name. Damn the spelling police he muttered under his breath.

    The DD was complete fabrication, but there was disagreement over general direction and of course not being in the team, although I'd be disappointed in them both if that wasn't the case - Doyle should have been disappointed in being out of the team and Robins was right to hold firm if he believes that's the correct decision, anything else shows little backbone, providing it's kept professional of course. I believe other things were promised that haven't materialised too, but that's a different matter.

    It's been demonstrated this season that he couldn't, well at least couldn't without significant detriment to the way Robins is trying to play.
