 does makes you wonder if chansiri had wind of this from the off and that's the reason for the bad blood that's gone on all year …..guess we'll never know .

 

There's been been a bloke on this forum telling us for a year that he heard from Hirst snr first hand the kid wouldn't be signing whatever we offered. 

Can't remember the posters name.

David Hirst’s loyalty is to his son not Wednesday.

 

As it should be.

 

And as mine would be in the same situation.

 

He’s gone somewhere where he’ll be getting more money and will most likely get first team football.

 

cracking move for the lad, good luck to him.

And what about the man who stopped young Hirst training with his team mates or playing football?

 

We're not talking about Trump and the babies in cages here mate. He's a young man who got into a contractual dispute not a baby.

 

Now why has he signed for this Belgian team? Surely not to be party to some plan to rip off Weds for millions of pounds? I am sure it must be coz he wants to play in the Belgian second division rather than in the Champ for us as we have offered.

A player wants to leave, his advisors have put in place an exit strategy and you blame Chansiri, what exactly could he have done?

 

Paid the player unlimited amounts?  Let him dictate where and when he plays?  

 

How would you persuade a player who doesn't want to stay to stay?  I bet you couldn't do it.

 

I think it’s been well documented that the club’s hierarchy haven’t exactly covered themselves in glory over this saga.

Well documented by whom?  Chansiri's detractors?

Millions of pounds? He was out of contract.

After how he was treated why would he want to sign another contract with us?

What angers me most, is not George leaving, its the fact two ex players who were hero worshiped at Hillsbro have shafted us big time.

It's not a cracking move for the lad tho is it? If it had been Man Utd or Everton then yes - but this is a move to the Belgian second division. 

 

He'd have been better in our squad in the Champ all day long. He's clearly gone for a big pay day. That is not necessarily the same thing as a good move.

 

Look what Jos did with a number of our players? He could have brought Hirst on a treat at a high level in his home town for his favourite club. Surely that's better on any view? 

 

But if you all care about is short term financial gain ....

"Shafted"?

There's other ex-players who are shocked at how young George was treated.

Tribunal fee plus sell on. Could easily be several million.

 

I am starting to think he's just not that good. If One of the big boys had wanted him this ludicrous Belgian thing wouldn't have been dreamt of.

He’ll be playing senior first team football.  It’s exactly what he needs, not sitting in Man Utd reserves.

 

Take your blue and white specs off.  Wednesday offered him less money than he could get elsewhere.  We’ve got 7 senior strikers.

 

I can’t see a single reason why he’d have wanted to sign for us.

All alternatively, he's actually better than we think and two ex-Wednesday legends have conspired to cash in big time with Wednesday left to suck eggs. Who knows?

So common knowledge makes it true?  Come back when you can substantiate your claim.
