The neverending saga of Jamie Walker / no deal, he stays at Hearts (updated)


Recommended Posts

Unbelievably naive from the club here. No club in their right mind would pay decent money for Walker now when they know h wants away and we'll look to empty him. Very poorly handled by both parties.

 

I also wouldn't be surprised if this put Jamie's back up and drove him toward the zombies.

Yes I'm sure that this statement will impact..not...   Putting Jamies back up !!!! really..he turned down the chance to be the highest paid player at the club and I'm willing to bet money is the reason with little words in his ear from his agent.

 

His agent knows the situation, other clubs know his situation and the media know his situation (all before this statement) yet you think this statement will lower his value..come on live in the real world.  This happens with clubs every year yet some don't want to be adult about it

Hearts should have never been needed to bring out a statement like that if Levein kept his mouth shut instead but he does to deflect the attention away from him and Cathro of the complete balls up of last season.

 

Jamie contract situation should have been kept private.

We're dealing with adults here. Has Levein really done anything wrong by disclosing that Walker wants to leave? Why should the club not be honest with this sort of thing.

 

If Levein didn't say anything then Walker was sold he'd be crucified on this board.

True, but I suppose if Walker only had intentions of leaving given his (decent) contract offer, then the club need to advertise his sale somehow. His dad saying it was all nonsense started the social media feud, as he was deemed to be a reliable source.

 

Sort of in two minds in all this now, maybe more inclined to take the club's side given how it all blew out of proportion.

Try and sell him... If we dont get a bid that is worthy then a season in the U20s... 

 

Also i thnk with this news. Its safe to say. Noone is actually sure who is on what at the club.

His name is

It's like an anti heart agenda from actual hearts fans. The fact the club has to defend itself from shite pedalled from its own support is crazy. Lets get behind the club ffs. Too many fannys taking the huff because we are on a bad run.

Totally agree with this.

Hardly a cretin, he'll probably earn loads more elsewhere.

 

You mean Ibrox? Because its pretty clear thats where he's going.

 

I hope he's on ?12k p/w there, might speed up how much faster those *******s die again.

He's not going to be the first or last to leave us. Johnston, Ritchie, Severin, Webster off the top of my head for starters.

To be fair to all involved, how do we know that an incrediblely small raise wouldn't make him top earners.

 

If he earns 3900 and the top earner gets 4000 he only needs 100 more a week.

No doubt he has had his head turned by another club.....

Either someone is talking shite (most likely) or Walker wants to stay at Hearts in theory but can't abide some current aspect of the situation, whether that's Levein or Cathro or what not.

 

As I said I imagine it's someone talking shite but failing that that's the best I can come up with.

Unbelievable. "Drove him towards the zombies". Think he's been well bit and on the turn for a while by the sound of it. Clubs fault though. Obvs

I thought it was widely accepted that Osh was on more than this.

I have no idea what Osh is on mate just Jamie.

 

Allan Preston said that Osh, Rherras and Sammon? were on 7k combined though if I remember right which backs up what I heard.

Hard to disagree with this.

 

If we can't punt him, I'd Osh him. Imagine playing him v Rangers and him putting in a half arsed attempt at a shift as he's counting down the days till he can sign a pre contract with them?

 

**** that.

 

Clean start next season, people who want to play for the club only.

I have to be honest and say that if I was a young footballer for whom my agent had made me aware of offers that could quadruple my current salary, I probably wouldn't sign a new deal either.

That's probably not far from the truth. We aren't going to be offering increases of huge amounts, and especially not to players who haven't really performed for half a season.

Even if it was a modest amount, he would still be highest paid and according to all the ITK folks that was a big reason of his for complaint about the contract. He wanted to be highest/among the highest.

 

You'd think he was earning some sort of pittance. He's doing not bad.

WTF is happening to our support on here,i mean the "Gorgie Fist" wound not  have giving  a flying feck if Walker wanted to leave. :singlefinger:

 

Take it on the chin , move on and live with it.

So there is plenty combinations of how that works out. Although id reckon about ?2.5k for Osh and Sammon and ?2k for Rherras.(although ive prob over inflated Rherras)

 

Nobody actually knows what they are all on.

So you choosing to be negative about the club

 

Well a couple of things if you've missed them. The club is still in the process of developing the youth structure to bring in good players. And building a new stand with better facilities to increase income to hopefully attract better players.

 

Oh and working to hand over ownership of the club to the fans with a good governance structure.

 

You not know any of that stuff?

Gaffe filled press conferences like yesterday, then clarification statements the following day are Romanov esque - we are a gift which keeps on giving for the media at present. Just an embarrassing situation caused by Craig Levein unnecessarily publicly stating that the star player wants to leave the club, completely out of the blue.

 

This is the sort of info which if they want to generate interest and a fee for the player, they should leak it out into the "rumours" pages and onto agents, be a bit more subtle rather than shout it from the rooftops with a megaphone making headline news like Levein. Not to mention he basically completely slated Cathro with some of the quotes from the presser, "he just needs to learn that scottish teams play long ball" oh did he not know that? Why did you hire him then? And he also gave a golden goose of an answer to the inevitable 'note passing' question, "it's a load of shite" (meanwhile video plays of John carrier pigeon Daly on the news, again). Can we expect club clarification statements on those 2 gaffes

Much as I have been and remain critical of the footballing side of the club this is an excellent statement. When we are looking at bringing new players in it's important that they feel they will be treated well and it removes a cloud that could have been potentially hovering over us in some people's minds. We should have released this before the press conference.

Well, there's a turn up for the books. Well played, Hearts.

 

For those questioning the need for the statement, do you think it's in the club's interest for it to be suggested that they offer their best players ?100-200 a month pay rises? Does that make Hearts sound like an attractive place to come to? Or for Walker to leave and for us to be left thinking he was treated shabbily?

No.

 

It was more of a reply that everyone takes the party line and instantly swallows it. As ever, with these things, the answer is somewhere in the middle.

 

And anyway, the club are hardly going to come out and say 'aye, we only offered Jamie a pittance extra and he said naw, so we told him to bolt' are they? Think about it. Not exactly great PR either way tbh.

Utter nonsense.

Not really surprised Hearts have a pay structure that rewards hard work and performance.

 

Just surprised all the ITK experts never talked about it.

Im glad the club made this statement, im fed up with the shite coming from the chavs in our support constantly having a go. Walker wants  to jump ship and they couldn't wait to blame Levein etc. I'll drive him along the M8 if he wants, no ones bigger than Hearts.

Spot on. Hearts fans were intentionally lieing in an attempt to drag the name of the club through the mud.

Oh ffs, Jamie.

How to go about ruining your relationship with your club and its fans in one fell swoop.

 

 

Never has the term 'like father like son' been more appropriate than this. Both as thick as 2 short planks that much is very obvious.

Before anyone has a go at me I never claimed to know what Walker was offered but I have known what other young players were offered. I did take the wrong side but I have never said something I've not known to be true.

 

Good the club have released the statement. Too many people talking shite.

Maybe Hearts are making tough demands on performance etc

 

Walker getting a good offer makes sense as does other players perhaps not so good offers.

Walker or his family have made him look a penis here.

 

If he wants to leave fair enough, if he wants to do it on a Bosman - while shitty, fair enough. But there's no need to be snidely little shit spreading lies that you've been 'forced out'. Be man enough to atleast admit that's you're plan.

This has been blown way out of proportion IMO, and the fires flamed by folk on here claiming to know what he'd been offered and made out to be liars. Hearts have offered him a deal, a deal to make him the highest paid player, and after initially agreeing it he's changed his mind. To me that sounds like he's had his head turned (it happens). Now that's not a criticism of Walker, if he has the chance to move somewhere else for what he sees is best for him and more money, then fair enough it's his decision. All Hearts have done is protect themselves by looking to punt him now and get some money for him and prevent him leaving for nowt.

 

As liam_hmfc has said further up, there are people moaning at us trying to sell him and then there's the people who will moan when he leaves for nothing. You really can't win with some folk!
