BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

Unless she was really careful to only intimate something happened rather than accuse directly so as to slander indirectly

 

Aye. I see what you mean. 

 

The whole situation involving George’s advisors has been disruptive, as was another party close to George who used unacceptable foul and abusive language to a senior member of our academy staff.

 

So another person close to him other than his advisors, and likely to be at the training ground. 

 

Points the finger at one person in all but name. 

Enough for a decent brief to get  stuck into I'm sure. 


Just a bloke. Being dragged along in a world that moves too quick for it's own good.

The club has lost 2million at least. 

 

 

 

No way was the offer £2m cash up front. I'm going for £800k plus add-ons. If GH amounts to the sum of nothing, then what we have lost is £800k minus the £180k we will be getting. 

 

I know I'm making the figures up but why do people keep saying we have lost 'at least £2m'? If GH turns into a world beater, we've lost a shed load more, if he goes the way of a thousand other prospects, we've lost a few hundred grand which DC can probably find down the back of the sofa if he feels that it was all about principles.

My thinking too.

Yeah but why David Hirst leave his ambassadorial role at Hillsborough?

Or

 

What if he ends up on loan at Rotherham for the season - and gets a hat trick at Hillsborough?

 

That's ridiculous, what possible contacts could a Belgian 2nd division side have with a very small club in South Yorkshire that would allow this deal to happen?

 

Georgie boy has simply gone there for the Chips and Mayo and Tin-Tin books, not as a parking club for some other deal.

 

End of thread.

Lets not forget during all this that young George is 19. Michael Owen was scoring belters at the world cup at 18. 

 

I was reading somewhere that Man Utd had "lost out" on the signing of GH. People shouldn't kid themselves. If Man Utd, City, Liverpool, Arsenal or Chelsea had wanted him, they would have had him. I'm not saying he won't amount to anything but he's got a long way to go to be the next Harry Kane. Leicester and Everton apparently the strongest interest for him, Premier League Clubs that can afford a million quid to see how he works out. Those looking for world class players clearly showed no real interest because one thing you can be certain of, he hasn't chosen gone to Belgium second division instead of Man Utd.

It'll be his mum bringing his snap box.

 

She'll have kicked off because the staff wouldn't let her explain to GH that she'd cut his crusts off and done him triangles.

This is nearly right but you've got it the wrong way round. Club insisted he had his crusts so he could fill out a bit. David went mental "If my boy don't want his crusts, he won't fu***ng eat his crusts you stuck up youth-team coaching c**t". At least that's what I heard.

Amazing that so many Wednesday fans are siding with Chansiri over the Hirst family without hearing the latter's side of the story. David deserves more respect than that.

 

Fact is, the first contract offer to George was rejected, and he was immediately frozen out of the picture - no new offer, no negotiation, no training with the first team, no matches with the U23s. How would you advise your son if a club did that to him after the first round of contract talks? You'd want him out of there ASAP.

 

Same happened with Thorniley, same happened with Clare. It is no coincidence that Clare has followed Hirst out the door - they don't want to stay at a club that is so unprofessional. Clare's departure in particular was not at all financially motivated.

Until the club learns how to keep hold of its best young prospects it will keep losing them.

Could be.

 

We'll soon know though when the boys advisors release  their statement to clear all their names of any wrong doing  and  detail the appalling treatment they've all been subject to on July 1st. 

 

I for one can't wait.

Is there a reason why you keep insisting this will happen?

What do you make to @Buxtongents repeated first hand story that he'd wanted him out of there long before any of that?

Equally amazing though that so many fans are putting the boot into Chansiri for the same reasons.

 

Reality is, if anyone who does know exactly what has happened and decides to share it on the forum, it is lost in a sea of ITK'ers who have declared that this, that or the other has happened.

 

No disrespect Kivo, I know you know your onions but your version of what happened is the exact opposite of some others so as a casual poster with absolutely no knowledge of anything, your info gets the treated the same as anyone else. With a pinch of salt.

The subject of how good George is hasn't been discussed really. 

 

Im working on the assumption he is gonna be a premier league standard player like his father was. 

 

I think it's a safe assumption but you may disagree. 

 

All I know is this thread will feel like a drop in the ocean compared to the amount of future threads that will appear after ever goal he scores for Leicester and England.

Precisely. It's inexplicable.

 

We could all just give DC the benefit of the doubt, and say he must have had a good reason for it, but I've genuinely no such faith in DC's motives here.

I think he has the right motives. Its just the latest in a line of silly mistakes. Kat Mierre seems to have put halt to a lot of the ones we made this time last year. Hopefully the GH saga is the last one we have to see.

Has anybody really 'put the boot into Chansiri' on this?

 

I can't see much evidence of it (if at all).  If anything I think this whole thread has been more sympathetic to his naivity, which looks to have cost him.

Yeah.

 

I keep being told I don't know the truth. 

I keep being told not to belive the Chairman's version.

 

So aye. I look forward to hearing the other side.

If someone was calling me a disruptive abusive knobber I'd be itching to clear me name. 

 

I'd be hammering away at a statment to clear me name well in advance of all ties being cut ready for the day I could tell my version. 

 

It seems a more obvious way than telling 4 blokes on a footy forum to spread the word of me innocence  and hoping theyre reyt convincing.

Generally, I'd agree in respect of DC's motives - i.e. he's determined for this club to succeed.

 

I'm far less convinced of the purity of his motives in relation to Hirst though. It's hard to shake the feeling that his approach to Hirst during August last year had been almost entirely emotional.
