Graham Westley, as he told The Daily Mail, has claimed that Preston never saw the best of him during his spell at Deepdale with his dismissal somewhat harsh.
He said: 'Preston never got to see Graham Westley at his best.
'I can remember saying 'Graham Westley at Stevenage would do this or that' on several occasions, as I fought for some empowerment.'
Financial constraints must have been in place at Stevenage too?
Westley, sacked in February, feels that financial constraints made his job all the more challenging and was "hamstrung" by this, adding: 'It makes me giggle to think that there is a perception that things 'went wrong'.
'The expectation of promotion that the club set for this season was unrealistic in my eyes, bearing in mind the size of the change, the wage reduction and our budgetary position.
'I felt hamstrung. I knew the answers to problems but I wasn't being allowed to solve all the problems.'
It wasn't easy for Westley, however to be fair he was given the chance to rebuild the squad over the summer and brought in a squad of players that he wanted and the league position wasn't acceptable, nor was the run of form.
Some sympathy will be there for Westley I'm sure but with the club slipping worryingly close to the League One relegation trap door and the signs of change not really showing a managerial change was needed, wasn't it?
