    New Manager Latest Odds

    what the frith is the fear of life? I've never heard such a phrase. I don't believe it for a second, but PL as saints boss would be awesome. He is a more than competent manager

    Goodwin Please, Not Neilson

    You would have to ask Baz, he is the one who said Goodwin is not ready. I just agreed.

    Sorry, you don't know me and wouldn't be aware that my ill-feelings are aimed at all humanity-and rightly so.

    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    That's it, Jack was doing us a favour when doing a deal with the PROSPECTIVE owners of Sunderland so that they have to pay up big to avoid a court or tribunal. yes, i see that now. Except, Sunderland DID approach saints after the club had been thoroughly undermined by JR, giving the board Hobson's choice. Thereby potentially limiting any compo on offer. When the deal was floated and negotiated the NOW owners of Sunderland were only bidders and not bound by any rules on who they could or could not talk to and therefor NOT liable for any compo other than what the saints board were corralled into taking. Sorry, but shit stinks, you can swallow your share if you want. Mind you don't get a spasm whilst holding your nose.

    Goodwin Please, Not Neilson

    There is a weird method to the madness of this thread. If we take Goodwin, then alloa have the chance of appointing Jim Duffy as manager, meaning they will have a better chance of staying up, thus relegating a better club. With Goodwin in Paisley, the certainty is that we will be in the Chanpionship season after next and playing against an Alloa side that has already given it their best shot and are spent, so we will at least get a play-off spot. Hard to argue with that logic. Goodwin is part of the St Mirren past, he had a shot and didn't make it. Not every moderately successful Alloa manager is good enough to manage the saints

    Because he won't sign for Ipswich. You do realise that by using a full stop rather than a comma your figures read fifty pounds and 300 pounds?

    But tabled a month ago, in the absence of other offers at the time, it may well have been signed. To be honest, it must be hard to enforce a compensation figure that greatly outstrips what you have previously valued your manager at. in effect, you are asking him to don a pair of handcuffs that prevent him from exerting his right to take his labour where he sees fit unless you get 3 or four times more than you were ever likely to pay the manager himself. Such payments really focus on goodwill and we have heard over the years of players (less so managers) insisting on a hefty fee for a selling club before they agree to talk to prospective new employers. I would hope that Ross would be decent enough to have made that gesture to the club that gave him such a fantastic platform. It's seemingly not all over yet though so maybe he has done the right thing.
