Ramblings of a Soccer Junky

  Put this one in the "huh?" category
Hearts manager George Burley has left the club after leading them to the top of the SPL...ahead of the Old Firm.

It is understood Burley's relationship with Lithuanian major shareholder Vladimir Romanov had completely broken down. The initial problems surfaced over the club's transfer policy, with players signed without the manager's knowledge.


Wow, so maybe Doug Hamilton isn't the only boss who runs off successful managers when the team are at the top. Could Burley end up at the HDC? I doubt it, but I'm sure Frank Yallop would give him a solid reference.

I still find it amazing that business people--either in Europe or in the US-will make decisions which should be left up to people with better knowledge who they hire for that expertise. But what do I know?
