    There's no doubt it was the correct decision to let Heck go.

    IMHO he should have gone after the Hearts fiasco.

    He really did get himself the sack. Things that were blatantly obvious were just ignored by the clown

    Just asking and curious.

    Would / could he have turned it around?

    Could we do a lot worse out there, now that we are back in the market?

    Was it really fan pressure that pushed the board (rather than the footballing reasons Leanne gave in her conference)?
    Absolutely not a mistake to sack him.

    His teams were inhibited, riddled with doubt and fear and set up to contain rather than have a go at opponents - a reflection of his mind-set.

    I felt a palpable relief when I heard he'd gone.

    1-4 win away from home and, just as important, a performance that's delighted the fans - NO - no mistake whatsoever !

    To be honest I was unsure sacking Heckingbottom was the right idea, I just didnít see how all of a sudden we would improve. Even I have to admit it was night and day the performance today especially Doidge so sacking Heckingbottom was the right decision.

    The mistakes were not understanding his football philosophy before appointing him, not taking him to one side and telling him itís not working and then not binning him 4 weeks ago.

    Itís history now but it cannot be allowed to happen again under the stewardship of this same regime.

    Wonder what PH thought of today's result ?

    Saw it coming and would have happened anyway with him in charge ?
    Set up to attack paid dividends ?
    Players weren't really playing for him ?
    Lucky at last ?

    Bottom line, must be galling for him to see us bag a great away win against our bogey team, and our misfiring striker hit a treble.

    No mistake, he was the master of his own downfall.
    So glad he's gone.

    Exactly. The guys genuinely played with a bit of freedom today. Guys widely castigated on here looked like players. Enough said.

    I thought that Flo's choice of words in his post match interview were very telling, Hecky clearly over complicated the beautiful game.

    WGA should have gone a long time ago.

    It's been obvious for months that he was clueless.

    I don't think he'll admit it had anything to do with him, the man doesn't learn.

    He'll probably point to the fact it was the same players he was using, except this time they tried!!!!!

    Yep. Pretty unequivocal response there. Many thanks to all contributors.

    Someone asked me if my post meant that I harboured doubts and my honest answer would have to be, yes

    Not because I thought Heck was doing a good job, but more because I was concerned about the calibre of replacement that may arrive.

    I thought the players made the effort but that it was mis-directed by Heck. Sadly Iíve seen managers at Hibs who have failed to get any commitment from their players AND misdirected them.

    Yesterdayís result certainly suggested that some of Hecks signings might not be that poor after all, on the other hand Eddie played Hibs in a way that Heck couldnít see fit to do and the result was exceptional.

    Just because you have doubts that we might not hire a good replacement, doesn't mean it was a mistake to sack Heckingbottom though. It just means that we may need to review who does the hiring of the managers.

    We were on course for relegation under Heckingbottom, the atmosphere amongst the support at games was dreadful and there surely can't be any regrets about getting rid of him.

    It's a bit like leaving a job that you absolutely hated, it made you unhappy every day that you were there and you dreaded turning up for every shift. If you move to a new job that you also end up disliking, I don't think it means you have made a mistake leaving your old job, you just need to take more care in selecting a better job in the future.

    The only mistake was that he should have been emptied earlier. Heckingbottom can have no complaints. He was backed financially and given time. He did not learn from his mistakes and criminally underestimated the league.
