Suggesting that Pearce is a problem really boiled my piss. We've been shocking for a long time. Heck has come in and hasn't improved things in any way.

Excuses:
Unavailable players - only really Ayling unavailable from the established group.
Players weren't playing for TC - clearly not playing for PH either...
Not his signings - Well if Orta is the one in charge of transfers, then nor was TC, and he managed to wring more out of this squad at one point.

Not good enough, for me.

But that's my point, I think any manager should be backing the young players. Fine to take them out of the firing line if they are having a bad game but don't have a dig at them in out post match interview.

Heckingbottom has bigger questions to answer.
Having seen the highlights he looked at fault for the second goal, and I'm yet to be convinced by him, but that makes it worse.

If he's not good enough and will never be good enough then it's disgusting to put the blame on him.

It's also come out that he's out of contract so it'll be interesting to see what happens there.

Heckingbottom felt the pressure from Norwich was coming down Leeds' left in the second half. Felt it was a lesson for Tom Pearce today. #lufc

Yep all Tom Pearce's fault :roll:
Am I missing the context of those comments? How is he saying it was Pearce's fault?

All I see is him saying that Norwich attacked him constantly and that he would have learned from that.

When you say something is a lesson for somebody it implies they did things wrong. He didn't say he coped well under constant pressure.

Fair enough, that's a valid point. I'm not sure that he intended to blame Pearce though.

The rolling eyes emoji would rather imply sarcasm and that it was not Tom Pearce at fault! :bear:

He certainly didn't intend to accept any blame himself.

I think he's rolling his eyes at Heckingbottom questioning the performance of Pearce.

Paul Heckingbottom's Post Norwich City Press Conference.
In which he states that he knows that he is right.
I would hate to see what happens when he gets it wrong.
Trashes Pearce.

The fact is he singled him out, like Colin did with Tom Lees.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Twitter classes PH with Neil Warnock for his handling of Tom Pearce.
It is I blame Tom Lees all over again. Poor man management.

Indeed I've kept a low profile over the last week other than the music/racing topics on here for obvious reasons

I suspect you looked very smart suited & booted mate, trust the wedding went well

Well said Noel Whelan, hope to receive my refund in the post this week :)

I've been saying this about our players for many months even when we were sneaking wins

They have constantly cheated our fans & stole their wages

Time for the majority to go, getting rid of them is now the real problem thanks to the idiots running our club

Good judgement no but sentiment yes. I wish all of the tweets had been picked up
so you could see just how disillusioned the fans are with Heckingbotton.
