    “It’s difficult to not have some degree of sympathy for Paul Hart”

    No it isn’t. This is a guy who took over as Rushden manager after relegation to the Conference, and who blew what was a decent Conference budget on has-beens from the Football League. When we sacked him we were 23rd, second from bottom. No-one expected an instant promotion but to be 23rd with one of the Conf’s highest budgets is poor. Worse than poor in fact.

    With a performance like that, he must surely have known his job was at risk. After a 4-1 defeat to Northwich he was sacked. Take your pay-off and leave you’d expect… after all, if what other job is your contract paid up when sacked for being crap at your job? Not Hart. He tried to sue us for unfair dismissal (I’m not even sure if the case is still running or not). How arrogant is that? We give him a chance back in the game (after failing at 2 other clubs), he fails miserably with us, gets his pay-off and still thinks it’s unfair?

    Sorry for Hart? Sorry he’s got another pay-off, delighted he’s been sacked.
