gardening leave and lawyers

Post by jayjay23 on Wed Jan 06, 2010 5:45 am

What does gardening leave mean?

Is it just an expression they made up or is it an actual term people use?

And besides - the lawyers have now been brought in to sort out the compensation mess.

Is Coyle going to attend at Arsenal or is he still under Burnley control? It is a case of when now, not if. Somebody send him a live straem!

Gardening Leave originated with football managers.

It's because they stand pitchside, which means that they are overseeing events on the pitch (or tending the garden, as it were).

Gardening Leave therefore comes from them still being at/being employed by the club, but they are unable to tend the garden. So in effect they are on leave... which is easily described as Gardening Leave.


See, you learn something new every day.

I've known a few people to go on 'Gardening leave' and in almost every case their gardens never look any different
