    Rhodes to Norwich

    Ben Marshall and Jordan Rhodes BOTH going to Norwich could be a bit of a master stroke by them. I think Marshall is just the sort of player to get Rhodes firing again.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    If Leicester aren’t involved then he’s just signed away the next 5 years of his career to playing in the Belgian second division in front of a few thousand fans. That’ll take him up to the age of 25. Not the easiest way to realise his dreams of following in his dad’s footsteps and playing in the Premier League and for his country at full international level. If so then I think young George has probably the worst agents and advisors in football.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    That’s not really the point though is it as you well know. George Hirst wants to earn as much money as he can and further his career, that’s fair enough. Sheffield Wednesday have a wage structure they aren’t prepared to break to accommodate an unproven kid, that’s fair enough. George Hirst leaves the club and signs for a club that can offer him a wage that we can’t. I don’t think many Wednesday fans have an issue with any of the above, I certainly don’t. What the issue here is they appear to have deliberately engineered a move to this Belgian second division side with the sole purpose of moving him on to Leicester via the back door so that the club that developed him (us!!!) don’t get the compensation they are due, thus screwing the club out of money. How are you even missing this point and why can’t you see why screwing the club financially would p**s off quite a large section of the fan base?? Without getting the crayons out I honestly don’t know how else to explain this to you.

    Neither have I mate, he’s probably a pig or just a bit weird.

    In fairness he’s put far far more money than you, I or David Hirst will ever put into Sheffield Wednesday.

    You’re wasting your time mate. I’m not convinced Geoffrey understands how football clubs work, he just keeps on repeating over and over points that have already been addressed numerous times in this thread. As far as I can see the fans have seen how the club have been shafted out of compensation they are rightly owed and don’t like it. They have heard the only account from anybody actually involved in these negotiations (Dejphon Chansiri) and in the absence of anything from the Hirst camp taken it on face value. Geoffrey on the other hand has just sat with his fingers in his ears and laid the blame with the club, presumably he’s happy to see us lose out financially. I think he just likes to be “controversial”, you can guarantee if the majority of fans on here were back Hirst and congratulating him on a “shrewd” move, he’d be the first on here defending Dejphon Chansiri instead.

    I remember thinking at the time this painting was commissioned how annoyed I’d be if this dispute stopped David Hirst, my hero as I grew up featuring on the picture. After the way it appears that he’s helped screw the club over though by helping to get his son into Leicester through the back door, thus ensuring the club we all love and support suffers financially as a result, I’m starting to think we’d have been better off sticking Mel Sterland or Mark Bright in his place instead.

    Perhaps Jos wants to bring his own medical team in.

    Agreed, I’ve been calling for Joao to be given a run of games for ages, thankfully under Jos he got that and we are reaping the rewards.

    So you think Carlos would’ve changed his way of playing to accommodate Hirst, an unproven youngster rather than play proven performers at this level such as Winnall, Rhodes and Fletcher? Ok then.

    Bang on, we should be handing out first team contracts to all our youngsters!!!

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    I asked you a question, in his previous appearances in the first team he had no impact on the game, you suggested it was because we weren’t playing to his strengths. I asked you how confident you’d have been that the same manager would have changed how he was playing to accommodate Hirst had he been chosen him ahead of Fletcher, Winnall and Rhodes to make him more affective whilst in the middle of a promotion battle. Rather than answer the question you provide a “laughable” response. Pretty telling.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    And when he came on against Reading? What about then? I’m assuming you think maybe we didn’t play to his strengths then either considering his introduction into the side had no impact on that game too? And if we didn’t play to his strengths in his only 2 previous matches where he was pretty ineffective, what makes you so confident that had we played him ahead of Rhodes, Winnall and Fletcher that we’d have played to his strengths then? As I keep on saying, to throw an unproven kid who hadn’t impressed previously in the first team into the middle of a promotion battle would’ve been silly.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    A move to Leeds, Everton or Leicester would’ve no doubt seen him loaned to League 1 or 2 for a season where he’d have been playing but he’d have been committing his future to either a Premier League club or huge Championship club, not signing the next 5 years of his life away to play in the Belgian second division. If you think this is anything but a way of him going to Leicester via the back door then you are very naive my friend.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing AFTER the event. George Hirst did nothing in the cup at Cambridge. There’s an argument to say Sam Winnall should’ve been starting ahead of Jordan Rhodes but to say George Hirst, an unproven kid would've had a bigger impact on the first team than Rhodes, Winnall and Fletcher is just silly and had Carlos chosen Hirst ahead of those 3, fans would’ve thought he’d lost the plot.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    You’ve literally just said we should’ve played him instead of signing Jordan Rhodes. Check out the league table on 31st January 2017.... I think you’ll find we were in the top 6 fighting for promotion. As for the rest of your post, I stand by the fact that no manager worth his salt would play an unproven kid who hadn’t impressed in the cup against lower league opposition ahead of one of the Championship all time top goal scorers, a proven international who’d played most of his career in the Premier League or Sam Winnall who’d scored freely during the first half of the season at Barnsley.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    Yes because whilst in the midst of a promotion battle you’re better playing a youngster who didn’t really impress against Cambridge rather than 3 proven performers at Championship level and above.

    If that’s the case just sign for Leicester then. Don’t go out of your way to sign for a Belgian club in order to sign for Leicester through the back door, this screeing the club you claim to support out of much needed income.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    So assuming this isn’t a stitch up and not a plan to get him into Leicester via the back door, do you think that moving to the Belgian second division is a better career move, playing in front of a handful of fans every week rather than going to one of the clubs he was linked with such as Leeds United, Everton, Leicester City or signing a new deal at Wednesday?

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    Bang on, David Hirst will and SHOULD do what is best for his son. Being a footballer is a short career and George Hirst understandably wants to earn what he can while he can... absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. None of the above is an issue for me. What I have a problem with is the fact that he hasn’t signed for Leicester, that between them it appears that Hirst Junior, Hirst Senior and Leicester City have cooked up a way of taking Hirst from the club that developed him for a pittance in order to screw the club out of the compensation they are rightly owed. Between them it appears that they have taken a huge collective dump on Sheffield Wednesday when there was no need to. A club they have both claimed they were fans of in the past. As I say, no problem with George wanting to further his career or earn more money, I have a real problem with what appears to be a deliberate attempt to s**t on the club. Forgive me if I don’t wish young George well for the future.

    As we turned down a £1m bid from Leicester for him, I’d say we’ve lost out on an amount that would’ve been enough to sign Venancio.

    It’ll be interesting to see the reception Hirsty gets the next time he pops up at some working men’s club to do “an evening with”.
