I completely get why he would go. Even if he fails there (and the Leeds fans don't seem particularly enamoured with his appointment) then he fails with three years worth of his Barnsley salary in his back pocket. No matter how well he'd done here what odds he'd still be employed in three years? It's unlikely. So simple maths, bigger turnover etc, etc - sticks in the craw but I'm a similar age and he can make himself comfortable for life even in failure. Then we get taking the staff with him. Complete b*stards trick that for me. At least Johnson took himself and no-one else. Great bit of work from 'one of our own'. Again, I get he wants to be a success there and having staff you trust is part of that but why couldn't that bit of recruitment have been done at the end of the season? Leave us some continuity, give us time to source a replacement. Paul 'one of our own' Heckingbottom has left us in the most despicable of ways only days after signing his new deal (complete with release clause so the club couldn't refuse permission for discussions) and ripped the heart out of the backroom team assembled. For that, I'm bitter. Right now I want nothing more than to see Heckinbottom fall flat on his ar*e at Leeds and be unemployed inside the next six months. I know how petty that sounds and I'm embarrassed to feel that way - but the manner of his departure and how contrived it all feels .... urgh ... ugly side of football from someone I thought had more class. I wish him nothing but bad luck in his new role and hope the Leeds fans give him hell. One of our own - aye alright.
