As his Win Ratio is still the highest since McFarlane in the 80s ( willing to have this challenged) he is still, a God in my books

 

Actually and I know there is talent out there.....

 

Can any Fellow Bud give us the managers win percentages since Fergie .................... Now there is a challenge

 

Jack is 44.8% Rae was 40.4%  ,TC and IM and GT were all under 20% after that total guessing

If someone get this right I will donate £25 to a charity of there choice,

 

Lets be impressed.............................

Percentages do differ but so do the amount of games played. If I still qualify for the winning prize, my chosen charity would be THE SCOTTISH AUTISTIC SOCIETY.    Cheers mate.

THIS IS THE LATEST STATS I COULD FIND FOR ROSS, AS THE SAINTS INFO STOPS AT RAE.
TEAM FROM TO GAMES WON DRAWN LOST
St Mirren 10 Oct, 2016 Present 42 18 8 16

 

 

 

 

           

 

 

I have not weighed in on the Jack Ross management opinion before. I heavily weighed in on Murray for obvious reasons, (So I am not just a happy clapper) but these guys, Ross and Fowler, are doing a fabulous job.  (PS I am no relation to either)

In football management things move fast. Managers get sacked while they still have previous manager's players that have not performing for either of them.

I think the statistics for Jack Ross since January, when he did a miraculous job swopping out and in about 10 players, with not too much time or budget scope, or the best window for choice, is the thing that sent us on the road to safety. And it was tight - but that gave us a fresh platform, having learned to win a lot more often and with a better team on the park than for too long.

The transition of the team had to continue too. (It always has to) Players went for money to help the club in the longer term..

We then had a better transfer window opportunity this time - it is still open. So more guys who need to learn to work for Jack and the team have just arrived. Some are old pro's, others younger lads on the way up, and a few in between.. 4 injury's to good players in the squad is an added blow..

Jack has budget constraints and pressures every day, as all professionals do, but he really convinces me that he cares and has ability to move us back to the Premiership.

The Morton result was horrible, but the sending off and the poor performance by our defence were factors, along with Morton's ability to exploit on this occasion. Last night's result was not great, but we are through to the next round, and a number of players in the squad were given a chance to improve their match fitness. This has got to be better than not giving them that opportunity, nor giving the usual first choice players any chance to rest and recover?

We may or may not get a great result against Livingstone - but Let's stop judging the manager and individual payers on one or two matches at the start of the season - as if any of us could do a much better job - I sincerely doubt any of us could.

I am more optimistic about our prospects at the moment than I have been in over 3 years. We will win plenty this season, and we will not be at the wrong end of the table when the prizes are being handed out. Let's fire in our opinions each week, but let's remember that none of the squad, management team or directors are  giving less that they can.  They want the fans to come out in good numbers and enjoy supporting a successful team. 

As always Jack and James will be looking to improve individuals and the team as a whole.. but so long as their is progress, it sure beats what we have been getting the 3 years or so prior to this. We are not the polished team yet, but we will be shinning more as the season progresses too.

Slightly surprised to  see that Jim Clunie was our most successful manager (45.07% win percentage) - better than Alex Ferguson. During his reign, we won the Anglo-Scottish Cup and were third in the league(?). Mind you, he inherited Alex's team and was provided with funds to bring in some good players (e.g., brought in Dougie Somner and broke the then Scottish transfer record with McDougall, etc.).  Then somehow it went bad and watching Saints was no longer a joy to watch and big Jim left for Kilmarnock (where things didn't go too well for him there).

Jack are James are hopefully turning our home into a fortress and teams won't like coming to play us.

 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This. Teams used to love coming to our ground as it was a great playing surface. Slowly that's changing.
