    That sums up everything about why I've lost interest in attending Oakwell regularly.

    Why would the situation back then affect your interest in the current team/club?

    Because I think we were building something special. We have thrown it away through our own acts/omissions. At my age, that fills me with a sense of futility in expecting our club to grow and develop. Will that change under the new owners? Possibly. But for now I wait to be convinced.

    Good read that, although I still really dislike the bloke.

    There he is again, highlighting the owners shortcomings. Whining like he did when he was here.

    I'd be interested to know who he holds accountable for his abysmal tenure at Leeds, with a good number of the current team.

    He was doing a talk at college on Friday my daughter was there and said hecky and Patrick were constantly arguing over the lack of contract negotiations and the way the club was going to go under the new ownership that effectively sealed Heckys fate at oakwell

    For me the new management gets the benefit of the doubt until we see what's happening structurally. We've already seen some more longer contacts. But obviously everyone gets to decide for themselves so thanks for the explanation!

    Who?

    Nah in all seriousness, it was a decent read. I reckon there’s some bs in there though.

    “I’d reached the point where, whoever it was, the next club that offered me a way out, I was taking it. I even thought about walking out and handing my notice in anyway.

    It felt pointless me being there.”

    So why did he sign a new contract?

    That might be in his next one, "how it wasn't my fault at Elland Road"

    Possible theory on this. I repeat, possible.

    Disenchanted. Wants out. Under contract, so no departure unless the club agrees. CEO says: "Paul, we will let any approaching club speak to you if you sign this new contract so that we get compensation for losing your services." Hecky signs. Leeds are allowed to speak to him. {Sequel: Leeds do what they always do. Hecky gets some breathing time with the benefit of his compo package.}
