    Alan's first signings

    Great find. That actually justifies the argument here of folk not even letting the ink dry before judging a players ability.

    I know it's a different era, though think of the names that Saints signed from the juniors most notably in the 70s. It doesn't matter what level you have been playing at, plenty of players fall into the wilderness or have just not found that opportunity yet. This Jamie Vardy lad is an ambassador for this type of scenario. Even Ian Wright I remember was playing Evostick or similar level until the age of 22 before Crystal Palace signed him. The rest is history.

    Now reading my comment it should be edited to say 'Willing to give him a chance rather than absolutely destroying him.'

    I've watched a few episodes in the past of the V9 academy that had a documentary on Sky 1. It's a really good set-up. It's great that Stubbs had involvement as a coach at this academy as it has not only gave him first-hand view of these players, it has also opened up his network of contacts down south for tapping out the best players who we would have more chance of signing, but maybe never had visibility of before. Heaton apparently had an offer on the table with a better salary at Middlesbrough, with other clubs at that level interested, though has opted for a better chance of first team football here. He could have a similar impact financially, if not better than Jack Henrys move from Dundee to Celtic. Before jumping on the 'not good enough ship', you only have to look at the career path of the guy who set up the V9 academy to see that their is talent in the lower leagues and its all about getting opportunities at the right time. I am looking forward to seeing who else is in the pipeline. I am pretty sure there is more experience to be added to the squad.

    New Manager Latest Odds

    I wouldn't read too much into whos been shortlisted and whos been linked. Guti for instance being linked, is pie in the sky as far as im concerned. Im fairly confident that the club already had managers in thought, though are sifting through all the applications to see if there is additional candidates out of work. The board still needs to weigh up the best options and narrow it down to their preferred candidiates to take to the next stage.

    I think Terry is used to getting what Jack Ross was supposedly earning annually, over 1 week.

    If reports are true, I think we move on swiftly. We first and foremost have a new manager to appoint and if you don't see your career at our beloved club, thanks for the memories, the goals and your excellent contribution to or championship winning season.

    Did we not have enough of the laptop boys with Murray and Spalding. Not for me Kev. I was just thinking of a name who hasnt been mentioned, works well with youth setups and has had experience at this level. I could well be wrong here on my judgment here. It wouldn't surprise me if the man appointed wasn't mentioned in the media.

    I would take a punt Ian Cathro. I know he never had the best of it at Hearts, though think he may be worth a shot.

    Jack Ross - SMTID?

    He was a former player, had some of the best memories of his career with us and built and restored faith within the club between fans, the board and the players as a manager, taking us back to the top flight where we belong in such a short space of time. Why cant the OP realise that he has an affection for the club regardless of where he is now. Tony Fitz was a self confessed Celtic fan before playing for us. Ask him now and he would give you a different answer.

    Was thinking the same thing. Jacks way of giving a little back to the club.

    Who would you like for next manager

    Reading Tony Fitzpatricks interview today, it seems like they already have someone in mind. I may be reading it wrongly though saying you have already prepared for life without Jack sounds to me like planning was possibly already in motion of who could be our next man, possibly when he was approached by Barnsley.
