He also said he could of left sooner and turned down other offers presumably Sunderland?
He did try to take Tommy Wright with him though.
I think what has got under everybody's skin is signing the Contract then leaving before the ink was dry. It's that which has made everyone question his actions and motives. Then to try and soften the blow by mentioning the buy-out clause as if he's done us a favour by getting it included when in actual fact it made Leeds' job easier, not to mention cheaper.
The majority of managers take their back room staff with them. It happens all the time. I don't see the outrage in this particular detail.
You are quite correct mate, however I in imho there's a big difference in taking you're right hand man with you and taking the whole backroom staff from a club you claim to love, sithi.
And went for Hammill, who turned him down.
And tried to get Isgrove, and was successful in getting Brownhill when we were in for him.
He’s a Cnut as well.
Yep. He's a massive cnut. And a terrible manager to boot.
Revisionism because he might be slightly less of a cnut than Heckingbottom ain't going to wash.
Yes Lee Johnson's departure was much more dignified than Hecky's. Even Danny Wilson after the Premiership season was due to the fact that it was one of his old clubs. Heckingbottom has gone to a club he is on record as stating that he hated
the club stuck by him after a 7/8 game losing streak and soon as he turned it around he left. but credit to him, he still turned up at Wembley and got booed something chronic when he appeared on tv inside stadium. he seems like a nice bloke. we can look back with hindsight and we were probably too critical of him. same with winnall. but winnall did himself no favours with that celebration but we gave him some right abuse in that game cos of it been revealed on day of rimmos funeral. both LJ AND winnall had no affiliation with us. but hecky has conducted himself the worst out of the both of them put together. PC isn't even cold yet and hecky jumped during this bad spell and PC passing and leaving after just signing a new deal and the fact he's a Barnsley lad makes it even worse. it's disgusting how he's conducted himself but he's consigned to history books now and I think we need to forget about him. he'll get his comeuppance and it will be his career that suffers just like his playing career
I guess the reality is they’re all c unts, with no loyalty towards anyone but themselves.
My problem is that I know this is the case in 99.9% of Football but Hecky claimed to be different, built a relationship on that premise and probably kept his job for longer than he deserved because of it.
I could have lived with all of that had he left with a bit of dignity but he hasn’t, he’s coming across as an absolute tool and that won’t be forgotten.
Like a lot on here I was a big fan of his because of his stated affinity with our club, but I'd have preferred he'd said nothing than come out with claptrap like this. I wonder what Patrick's family feel about his words - that sad event should never have been brought into it for me.
Adding to all that, he's also created a situation where for the first time in living memory I actively want the Blades to win a game of football...
This sums up exactly where I have got to. At first I tried to understand the decision and i still do some to extent. But the nature of how it's been done. And now the quotes from his interview are all poor. I am truly shocked that he hasn't acknowledged the fans.
The Cryne funeral baked meats did coldly furnish forth the Hecky resignation buffet tables.
That it should come to this!
But two weeks dead! — nay, not so much, not two:
So excellent an owner; that was, to this,
Hyperion to a satyr.
And.....Frailty thy name is Hecky!
Leeds are a step forward for him - fine. Not stable, but a bigger club no doubt. What really irkes me is that as a Barnsley man, fan, former player and coach, he can't see that the fans might have an emotional connection with him beyond simple contracts and finances. We are used to being dismissed and insulted from elsewhere, but 'one of our own?'. A few wisely chosen lines a la Conor Hourihane would have been a better sign-off, remembering all the very many good times we've enjoyed. I wish Paul all the best long term - but not for the moment at Leeds. He needs to remember you can't put a price on everything of value.
That's what has got me more than anything. I I've said elsewhere even Winnall mentioned the fans. Maybe we expect too much but it feels almost dismissive, the vast majority have backed him through this horrible run.
