There will be very few on here that know the inside story of what happened with him, Monk and Jos. They didn't like him. The first thing Bullen did was bring him back in from the cold. He may be a bad egg, he may be the victim of poor man management - the vast majority on here don't know just like we don't know what happened with McGughan, Bates, Westwood, George Hirst etc. The players fell out with Pleat apparently. Wilson couldn't handle Di Canio - in those circumstances it's the managers who got the blame even though Di Canio and Carbone weren't exactly the easiest players to manage through their careers and Waddle, Hirst, Sheridan etc were always pretty vocal about what should be. Clough and Pleat couldn't handle Sheridan properly - does that make him poo. Should we slag him off? It's all very muddy and if you aren't privy to the details it's very hard to judge. And no Hutchinson isn't as good as those players.
So I'm not slagging Monk,Jos, Carlos, Bullen, Gray or Hutchinson off. All I really know is what Hutchinson gave on the pitch and I was pretty happy with that. Time for him to go. Thank him for some good memories and we look for the next player to support.
