Karl Robinson, the longest serving manager under the current regime, has praised Roland Duchatelet, saying that he has not interfered in first team affairs: Longest serving manager
Roland is evidently still taking advantage of his live feed (when not enjoying moules and frites at a local restaurant). He texts Robinson about performances, praising them when the team have performed well but not got a result.
A more sceptical note has been struck by VOTV editor Rick Everitt. Tweeting from his Ramsgate base (aka the Royal Victoria Wetherspoons), he said that the decision to bring in Chris O'Loughlin must then have been taken by Karl Robinson which is hard to believe given that Russell Slade was sacked over it.
Normally reliable sources suggest that Robinson and Meire have a good working relationship.
