It's well documented that Hecky wanted him back in the summer . There's no doubt Fletch would have come back had we got close with the sums . His admiration for Hecky is also well known. Just thinking tho' was it Hecky or LJ who initially signed him ?
It was certain Lee Johnson .
Thought so . Strange then that he always confides in Hecky and not Frodo!
Whens he said he does?
Only person I've seen speak about this was Heckingbottom in the summer. He'll speak to a number of people (Coaches at Manchester United for sure)but at the end of it, Heckingbottom couldn't get him to Oakwell.
Hardly. One is a straightforward bloke the other is a quick **** shitter
Johnson signed him but left not long after. Most of his time here was under heckys management
It wasn't Johnson really was it who signed him. Let's be right, the spreadsheet identified Fletcher, Johnson just said OK. Johnson worked with Fletch a month, Hecky right through until the end of the season. Johnson's actual signings did well didn't they.....
But It's well known that Fletcher and plenty of other ex players go straight to Hecky for advice first , he's so well respected .
Are you blaming Hecky for that? I ask my ex-employer for advice on professional matters from time to time, but I wouldn't go back and work for her, because her budget doesn't allow her to pay me what I now earn working for myself. That's hardly her fault, and doesn't make her bad at her job.
Well hopefully we are bringing in two up top, Fletcher would be a great start!
Agree we need him on a permanent basis though!
you are just saying this. I don't think Ashley ever mentioned that he spoke to anyone when he signed for West Ham or Boro.
I could just say if I wanted that he had a chat with me about making the move.
I'd imagine if he spoke to anyone it would have been someone at Carrington. Maybe a friend within the sport, maybe someone at Botlon
At least the Lad wanted to play for Barnsley F.C. and Ph only money turned his head if we would have had the money to match boro at the time He would have been here then . Hope the lad comes back you could tell He loved the place and fans
He spoke with Hecky about it before he signed in the summer.
Hold your hand up now if you'd take a 75% pay cut just for the pleasure of going back to a former place of work.
(ok, the percentage is a guess, but if Fletcher is on £30k a week,it can't be too far off the mark)
So Heckingbottom said Gally. The poster above tried to make the point he spoke to Heckingbottom but not Johnson. I'm making the point he could have spoken to anyone because he never said who he'd spoke to.
“He actually phoned me and said, “Boro have just bid £7m for me’ and he was still, like, ‘What do I do?’ I said, ‘Get yourself there.’
Exactly that’s why He won’t be back just a good player
Yes read that fletcher asked Hecky for advice when West Ham and Middlesborough signed him.
Do you think Hecky was lying in the press conference then?
