I remember first hearing Roland was going to leave early that season. IIRC he initially wanted to leave around the Christmas period, but was convinced to stay until the end of the season. I remember telling people that he would be leaving and no one believed me, then the news broke. It was a sad day when Roland left. Arguably the best player in modern times to play for SWFC.

When he returned to England for Coventry City I was very disappointed.

That was one of me saddest days. 

As an emotional teenager it felt like the family was losing someone.

If I remember correctly he said his wife was home sick so he had to leave

 

But then came back playing for another club

 

As usual we got shafted

 

Great player while we had him though

He asked to come back.  Pleat said he didn't want him as he had just signed Blondeau.

Think it was something like 3 years between his leaving Wednesday and joining Coventry but was still disappointed. 

Probably wanted one last go in England for financial reasons.
