Quotes from the Shrewsbury chairman when asked about the possible managerial return of out of work Paul Hurst:

"A lot of things went on which obviously not everybody's privy to. Some things have come out recently, the way everything happened in the last few months before Paul left, clearing his desk before the biggest game in our history."

"There's no doubt interviews took place before that. Things come out in football. People talk. Eventually you find out more and more truths.

"When you've lost that trust, somebody's been doing stuff behind your back for such a length of time, at a really important time for the football club. Nobody's bigger than the football club.

"Paul and his agent negotiated a contract at the turn of the year, which is only 10 months ago, and then he was obviously trying to work on his exit strategy."

“BBC Shropshire have tried to contact Hurst, but have yet to receive a response.”

Perhaps they dialled Doig’s number by mistake.

Don't blame him for not wanting to miss out on an opportunity at Ipswich. Happens at all levels of the game and Shrewsbury weren't exactly transparent when they poached him from us. Also can't fault him for wanting away from the current regime and elements of the fan base at town.

Really hope he doesn't go to Notts County as he will sort them out pretty quickly.

To be fair, he did with Rob Scott when we appointed them so it’s not the first time he has done it, probably did it to us too what we don’t know about


We're on our way back

Hurst never gave his side of the story after shouty left and he hasn't given his side of the story on what the Shrews chairmen said.

Until then, who knows what the truth is.

Did he go on to describe how the conversations went when Hurst left GTFC? I doubt it.

Their chairman was more than happy when he kept them up and prior to their play off defeat.

If he’d have took them up I’m sure he’d have had a different view.

You're a football manager. You're lucky to last 18 months in the job. You'd be foolish not to check
out your options. (You can spoil the fans and some of them still want rid of you!)

I don't blame him.  

It's only the fans that manifest loyalty in football these days...not the players or the managers.

Most players employ agents in order to check out their options, let us not forget.
How long before managers start having them?

Now the chairperson of a club is supposed to have the best interests of the club at heart - obviously -
so....erm.....I don't think I want to continue that particular avenue of discussion just now.
Not while I'm enjoying 3 p(o)ints!

Clubs get punished for tapping up managers. We did. Why should managers be exempt from blame in breaching the rules. It takes two to tango after all.
