BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

Unless we know exactly what was said by whom and how it all unfolded I can only go on what we know. The aim was to keep him, that failed. A simple transfer elsewhere as a result of a fall out/I’ll treatment would’ve seen them get what they want and Wednesday paid a fraction of his potential value. What has actually happened is overkill from them and any sympathy has dissapeared.

We know that he was refused a loan move and refused football. 

 

If that was done to you as a means of forcing you to sign, would it make you more or less inclined to do so? . 

 

I know if it were me it would just make me think 'f%ck you too then'

 

It was a terrible decision by DC to do that.

What a brilliant move for the lad. His new club has existed for 16 yrs, has an average attendance of 4k and plays in the Belgian second division which must be - at best- L2 standard.

 

Money can be the only motivator here as he could have stayed with us in the Champ. What a foolish, short sighted decision.

Bit of a daft post this

 

Not because of the sentiment... but because the next stage of his development (had he not been frozen out for a year) would have probably been playing for about a L2 standard team in front of average attendances of about 4k. Make no mistake, this is essentially him re-doing the last year of his development and is synonymous with him signing for Leicester and being loaned out to a league two club... something many on here said he should have had happen last season.

Sorry if this has already been suggested...

But I'd expect him to be loaned straight to Leicester before the season starts.. no way will he play for this supposed club he's signed for.

Thoughts?

Only an idiot would think that stopping an 18 year old from training with his peers was the correct thing to do.

Good luck to young George. He deserved so much better.

It's not daft. It's all true. Plus according to Jos we offered him a place in our first team squad IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP next season.

 

Also, Rotherham wanted him on loan 12mths ago. They play in front of about 10k and got promoted from L1.

 

This is a hugely backward step in my opinion but no doubt it must have some advantages for him and his advisors.

If it is the case that he's signed for the Belgium club purely as a backdoor exercise to ultimately play for Leicester then Wednesday need to highlight the case and get this loophole closed.

I am trying to take some positives out of this, it’s the only way to deal with it. But it is very hard.

 

Should help Mr C understand what running a football club is all about in this country. Hopefully he will get streetwise sooner rather than later, as with his background, it must be a culture shock to find people acting so dishonourably.

 

I’m mostly gutted about no longer being able to recognise David Hirst as my all time hero. That hurts, I’m absolutely gutted. 

 

I refuse to let anyone get me bitter and twisted though. It’s the club that matters. Here’s looking forward to a successful season with a closely knit support.

Pretty sure we'll kick up a stink. Back door move to Leicester. Cretin.

 

I guarantee you we won’t. Probably bend over and ask for it deeper and with no lube.
