Blunts appoint Heckingbottom as manager


Recommended Posts

Well you can at least say they have a plan. Clear out the deadwood and develop the youth.

 

It's worked at other clubs before (Southampton) and they do have a decent track record of finding and developing young talent.

 

Why it's all come about is that courtesy of Cwissy they no longer have a pot to pee in and it sounds very much like Jokanovic didn't want to go down that route so effectively said "back me or sack me". Looked at it from that point of view Heckingbottom seems a logical choice but as always in football it's down to whether or not it works.

 

Whatever happens it's going to be an interesting period. In a year or so's time we'll be either rolling around laughing or thinking bloody hell, how on earth did they get away with it? Who knows?

 

As an aside, the body language was interesting, a lot of avoiding direct eye-contact with the questioner, looking down and (in PH's case) folded arms, all of which are signs of being very much on the defensive. Can't help but wonder if Slav was knifed in the back!

I stuck with it as long as I could.

 

I started to lose interest after the 98th use of the word ‘strategic’.

 

I realised it was misguided USA speak talk, with loads of words saying nothing & finally called it a day when he said “United fans are smart fans”. 
 

GOODBYE.

That's so funny. I've nearly wet myself. 

 

It's very weird - he said it with a straight face.

 

Does anyone really know of, or care about the pigs outside of Heeley?

I think you’re living in the past a bit mate. Isn’t 28yo Harry Maguire the last decent player their academy produced?

It's a shame they didn't get Brian down, he's good at shovelling snow. I can see him doing it from my window
