    Relations with the club must be strained if he’s putting this half arsed goodbye out through radio Sheffield.

    I think everyone is.

    The statement is shocking though.

    Done on his IPhone notes and sent directly to Buchan who has then shared it via a social media platform which Hecky always disapproved of.

    Not sure why it hasn’t been done via the club where everyone will see it.

    Interesting bit on there is the obvious arrogance. "When I took the job I knew I was on a pathway to leave the club at some point".

    Which basically means even at the start he knew he was that good that I would be too good for this Club.

    Its actually quite disturbing to read it.

    I've kept this to myself over the last few months and not mentioned it to anyone, but during the game against Villa (where the legends came out at Half Time) I was sat in the East Stand with some ex players and some of the staff. They were sat behind me and Hecky's name came up, this statement in a nutshell is what they said, "He was arrogant and self opinionated and didn't listen to his staff, he just did what he wanted without any input".

    When you have that kind of mentality and when the wheels come off, you're on your own, and Its my belief thats what happened. It got to a point where he didn't know how to stop the slump and he didn't have a close relationship with anyone apart from the 3 people who left with him.

    Interesting.

    Although I do think the top part of your post relates to Hecky saying he could also be sacked. Rather than him saying he’d do well enough to be headhunted.

    I really don’t give a toss, its a bit like reading a letter, or getting a statement , off a bird who dumped you a week a go, but truth be told you’d got bored of her anyway, and you was expecting a split at some point. In the bin it goes move on.

    He's a prick and that's that.

    His youngest daughter must have wrote that for him looking at some of that. Honesty thought it was a piss take.

    That's not what he ment, no manager stays for eve. At our level they will either out grow us or be sacked.

    Maybe I misread the sentence a little, but the conversations from behind me that day ring true.

    He had become arrogant and withdrawn from the end of last season and this. You could actually tell that from the press conferences, imho of course.

    Definitely too late for me, didn't have a chance? In sure that took all of a couple of minutes to write. Not even anything along the lines "of course it was hard to leave Barnsley" really that statement could have been from any manager not a local lad.

    Agree that this season in most of his press conference he’s come across as wound up, frustrated and negative.

    Not ‘Broken’ though as many kept suggesting.

    Interesting, I was going to post several weeks ago someting I'd heard about Eckie and Jason McCarthy but didn't for fear of being called a **** stirrer! Basically McCarthy's other half had said he had lost form and understood why he had been dropped, however, when he asked Eckie to go through aspects of his game to work on well Eckie completely shunned him, wouldn't speak to him etc. So much so they weren't on speaking terms. At the time said it's a shame as they've settled in the area and enjoy it up north.

    He really wanted out and wasn't enjoying it was he? That statement should be full of talk about it being an honour to manage his hometown club with the two Wembley finals being a dream come true. But it's punctuated with negatives and hints he hated it towards the end and couldn't wait to leave.

    It hurts, but looks like it's best for all concerned. It hurts so much because we all related to him and felt he loved being at the club he had a place for in his heart. Maybe we were naive and it was just another job to him. But at least if we know that, we can be positive about losing him and move on.

    I've said it in another post, he'd lost the dressing room. He believed his own hype, constantly moaning about not having players. He knew the budget etc and knew full well last January that players would be sold or go for nowt. He's been like Benitez at Newcastle a broken record. He's paid to coach so why not get on with it, constantly making the players aware they're not good enough doesn't help. Can't play 4-4-2 can't play with wing backs, can't be too attacking cos of other teams abilities.

    So long Hecky, time for a coach who will motivate and innovate. Hope Harsley tells em to enjoy it today and work and trust each other.

    Agreed when you compare it to the Hourihane statement it's very shabby. Maybe he was disillusioned and has been wanting a move for a while. If that is the case we will be better off with someone who wants to be here.
