Hurst’s “I detest” quote 12:46 - Feb 9 with 2842 viewspatrickswell

He’s trying to frame it that players blocked his efforts to improve them - to me it just reads that he came in and treated everyone who was already here as though they were mediocre from the moment he got here. He demoralised and undermined his players from day 1. If there is any justice, his next job will be in an Amazon warehouse somewhere. His legacy is a side careering into League One and a ground (as highlighted in George Caulkin’s Times preview of tomorrow’s match) plastered in meaningless motivational quotes and buzzwords.

For all that Hurst did wrong, you cant absolve the players of any blame!

All a bit OTT that.

The players were comfortable for 6 years. Chambers admitted it had gone that way. They didn't like someone trying to break the mould and rebelled against it. Bart threw his toys out the pram because he got dropped after poor performances.

The blame for this car crash of a year can be shared around lots of people.

This has been done to death but what is clear regardless of being treated well or badly by the managers they’ve been equally mediocre for both.

Hurst is no longer here so the right here and right now is the players and getting the right squad in place to bring us back.

Oh the players have been terrible, no question of that. My point is Hurst laid the groundwork for this from day 1. A combination of his attitude/approach towards those already here allied to his crazy transfer business.

I think he lost Bart when he informed him he was dropped by naming the team 90 minutes before a game was due to start. It’s not good man-management, and when you’ve only been through the door 2 minutes, it helps no-one.

I'm with you.

They didn't like him and there's reason for that.

They're not a bunch of children who just decided to play up for the sake of it.

Hurst has long gone and the players wanted a new manager and they got their wish, surely they are still not moping and sulking about Hurst are they?

Time is rapidly running out, at what point do these "demoralised" and "undermined" players start responding to Lambert?

There's a story on the front page.

He is commenting on that story.

It makes sense to comments on stories on this site that are written for this site.

To be fair, one factor in McCarthy's campaign to Hurst's is the former had a superb 'keeper; the latter had to deal with someone who had/has lost all the skills which made him so good - did the outburst come before Bart slid downhill or after?

Coming from a former player like Doig is extremely ironic. Bart should have asked him who he was.

Getting rid of three of our best players from last season certainly contributed

We have no idea what his instructions were from Evans though, perhaps he took the job knowing the likes of Webster and Waghorn had to be sold?

The Nasty Man From Yorkshire's players had us punching way, way above our weight for a long while. If you really want to blame hime for something, blame him for over-inflated expectations about very average players.

This is why I was always "Mick In". Like Lambert, he was a good man manager. The sort of guy that when the chips are down, he'll still have an arm around the shoulder. Hurst was extremely cold, he had none of that. You can have the scientific approach and still be a nice guy also. It pains me to say it but look at Farke; I can't dislike the guy. He is softly spoken but he knows what he wants out of his team. You don't have to be a meathead to get the best out of a team. Thankfully, I think Lambert knows this too (even though it hasn't paid off yet).

There were no instructions. They all wanted to leave!
