If true it's absolutely disgusting behaviour from the board of Barnsley FC to sack a man because you no longer want him as manager but then deny him the chance of future employment by trying to claim your owed compensation is despicable. They sacked him they don't want him for God's sake let him go warn a living you money grabbing greedy twats.
He wasn't sacked we seperated. The way I read it is he is under contract to us and we are paying him to do nothing as they do not want him at Oakwell. But they know from a previous tapping up that a club would be along soon enough wanting him and now here are Hearts.
No different to what’s happening with Benetiz, except you need to pay £20m to the Chinese club to get him.
Imho...this board are begining to embarrass my club......no class and out of their depth in football.
Stendell was sacked....its like have you ever had a partner who treated u like sh#t but didnt want any one else to have u-?!!!!
This has nothing to do with football, it's just business. If it puts more money into club coffers, I'm fine with it. The only bit I object to is Conway's unnecessary aggressive stance.
I expect our club officials to be respectful of others in the footballing world, not coming out with the kind of comments normally seen in Die Hard movies.
It has everything to do with class though....and they are showing none.
Terrible times, i want this to blow over but these people in charge of our club, just make things worse and worse.
Stay classy Barnsley board, We don't want him, let him get on with his life. He was an automatic promotion winner, the fans loved him, have a thought for the fans please board if not stendel
Because they don't want him yet expect someone to pay before they can employ him after last season he owes them nothing he got them put of the shithole of their making, they should wish him well thank him for his achievements they still haven't after 2 months and allow him to gain further employment without interference that might just earn them a bit of respect back from the fan base.
I wonder how much of this is more standard then we know.
Lots of examples of Managers not taking jobs as they are still being paid by previous jobs, but never heard of the previous insisting on compo.
But, was there not a delay on when Stendel officially started and was this because he was on garden leave from Hanover & waiting for it to finish?
Edit: do think Conway missed an opportunity for public redemption.
Imagine if in that interview, he’d said “ DS is still contracted to BFC, however we are willing to discuss with both him and Hearts how to satisfy this. I would also add DS did a fantastic job taking us up last year and we wish him all the best if he takes up this opportunity”.
Instead his chest beating comes across as American (Trumpish) rhetoric.
Of course if Daniel was a player in the same situation we'd all be up in arms if the board didn't try to get the best return on their investment.
Aye the coach is just another commodity to be bought and sold along with the players, our bad start this season just gave them the excuse to put him to one side and wait for someone to come in for him, whilst bringing in another cheap as chips coach. All part of the merry go round.that is now Barnsley fc.
Not if they had scored loads of goals/kept a load of clean sheets, helped get us promoted and the club had chosen not to play them despite the fans wanting them to.
They dont care about us fans, they are here just to make a profit.The sooner they are gone the better
Don’t want to say much as I don’t want to get people into trouble but I am told by certain people connected to the club that this board have no morals (in their opinion) and are very unlikeable people. Sad times.
The silence coming out of the club since the Stendel statement has always made me think that there are a lot of employees who are afraid of losing there jobs.
Paul Conroy..great article.
Definitely get that vibe.
I don't think you know all the things that are happening in the background. Let's reserve judgement until everything is out. You might be surprised.
