In view of the statement on the Hull City website, issued following the grant to Colchester of an injunction temporarily restraining Mr Parkinson from entering into negotiations with any third party, the Board of Colchester United wishes to make it clear that they have not received an offer of 'generous' compensation, although a modest offer of compensation was made.

The injunction was only applied for against the threat that Hull City would simply proceed to attempt to conclude negotiations with Mr Parkinson and await the outcome of any future tribunal.

In light of that threat, the Board consider that with regret it had no alternative but to seek an injunction which will have the effect either of retaining Mr Parkinson's services for the Club or enabling a breathing space for meaningful negotiations to ensue.

When's the teacher coming out to stop it?
