I’ve no evidence at all to back this up, this is just what I believe happened with Hecky & the rest of the staff. He decided at some point after last January or maybe the summer that he wasn’t happy with the business been done at Barnsley & wanted a new job. At some point he spoke to Clapham, Winder & Bailey when there was interest from others, probably Sunderland & they were up for it. For whatever reason it didn’t happen. After this our forms not been as good & their didn’t seem to be as many sackings & potential job openings so Hecky decides to sign the new deal not expecting any upcoming interest in him. Everything’s going smoothly, he has a new contract & he gets in the players he wants this January unlike the two bad windows previously & he’s prepared to carry on as normal but then out of the blue....... Leeds get pumped 4-1 at home by a Cardiff team who’ve been in bad form lately. Leeds were favourites & it came out of the blue. Leeds decide to sack Christiansen & approach Hecky. Hecky speaks to Clapham & co & they’re still up for the move away as they were months earlier & the deal is done. I’d watched the 11 minute video of Hecky after the transfer window talking about the deals & how enthusiastic he sounds & I don’t believe he knew Leeds were interested at that point. I’m convinced it happened after the Leeds defeat in Saturday. I don’t think there was any great conspiracy with the staff, I just think they’d all spoke previously when other potential openings were about & they were all ready to leave if the right club came up & for them it did.
