    Apologies if this has been posted before: PH statement published in Yorkshire Post.

    Quote: "The contract was first mentioned to me in March and then nothing was spoken about until July,” Heckingbottom said. “Straight away, there’s a big gap. We started discussing it and then the new ownership came in. I had lots of responsibilities there and I literally put it on the back-burner for the good of the club and the team. Then we had the sad news regarding Patrick. I’d already signed the contract a week before but we were trying to get the timing right so we delayed it even further. “If they want to hide behind the fact that the contract was signed a couple of days before I left then fine. But in all honesty it was nothing to do with it. If you look at it, there’s only me missed out on the money from the new contract. Barnsley have received more compensation than they would have done if I hadn’t signed. Barnsley have been the winners out of it.”

    .............“It’s one of those things I just had to jump at. I’d never want to be in a position and think ‘I wish. I wish I’d done that’. I don’t believe in being like that or having any regrets. It felt right.”

    "I'm glad I did that now, because with Leeds record of sacking and paying off managers, I'll be quids in when I'm managing Grimsby. I'll have the best car in the car park!"

    There more he says the more I’m starting to really dislike him. I loved the bloke but once there’s a GIF of him doing that poncey Leeds salute he’s totally dead to me.

    Well speaking of timing, not being satisfied with doing exactly as he likes and leaving us in such a potentially precarious position, it looks like he now wants custody of the kids too...

    "if they want to hide..." - theyre hiding nowt. GG has made the same point today, that the contract was signed a couple of weeks ago and there was no question of Mr Heckingarsehole jumping ship in 3 days.

    What a sad and twisted man he seems to have become. And still not a word for the fans who've done nowt but praise and support him.

    One of our own my arse. One of all the rest of the greedy ungracious barstewards.

    Not all of us . You may well have a weak moral compass but anyone with a tiny bit of conscience would have thought twice especially with the club involved .

    I seriously doubt he'd have gone to Leeds this time last year hen we were sat 8th or 9th or whatever. Maybe if one of the serious clubs at this level in terms of getting out of it like a Norwich or Wolves etc. I think he's looked at it an realised he's been found out, the calls for me to be sacked are growing and this could be the last chance to move to a big club. Let's face it, if we'd sacked him he'd have ended up in L1. Still hate the snakey prick.
