    Goodwin isn't imminently incoming for f**k sake. At least not to the stage it is a 'done deal'. This isn't even speculation, its just common sense. Alloa would have absolutely 100% commented on their website that they'd accepted an approach from St. Mirren. That in turn would have confirmed OK was gone from us and been widely reported. None of that has happened, so if Goodwin is a done deal, we've illegally tapped him up and offered him terms which he's accepted without the permission fo his current club and we are, therefore totally f**ked. Common sense dictates it's a load of shite. Common sense has long since departed this station though.

    If true, Tony is coming out of this way better than Gordon Scott. Tony picked a good one in OK. OK has kept us in the top flight and won over the vast majority of the fans who attend the games. He has been an absolute credit to himself and the Club. A smashing guy who had the courage to take on the shitfest that was St Mirren FC post Stubbs. I believe that with a decent budget Oran will bring the good times back. So disappointing that we appear to be on the verge of losing him. This doesnt make our Board look competent at all.

    Next St Mirren Manager - Merged

    Canny believe the c**t took us from near Championship relegation to being an established Premier League side, our first League Cup final in over 50 years and gave us shite memories like pumping Celtic 4-0, winning the cup double and pumping Motherwell in the Scottish Cup. What an absolute fud he was, I’d have much rather seen us relegated to League One.

    Really? 52 years of devotion and you’ll throw that away because the BOD aren’t telling you why a manager who’s been with us for less than a year is leaving? How the f**k did you get through Jack leaving and the subsequent Stubbs Omni-shambles?

    Think someone needs to have a word with Alan Wardrop after this. He retweeted a journalist saying a statement is imminent about Orans departure, commenting on players about to be signed. Think he enjoys the attention, needs to start acting like a director and not someone playing the role. Makes us, and him, look amateur.

    Christ guys, I know it's been a tough week but can we all just tone down the ridiculous, endless squabbling for a bit? It makes this place completely unbearable. You wouldn't talk to each other in a pub - not sure why you can't just ignore folk you don't like in here.

    Forget all the club legend and hero stuff. Jim Goodwin will be appointed SMFC manager on merit due to the superb work he has done at Alloa. Done an absolutely outstanding job in what last year was a hugely competitive league, so much so that Falkirk went down and Partick nearly. His work at Alloa was not just last year but the seasons before also. His recruitment at Alloa was first class and his man management is outstanding. No suprise that Jack Ross took him to Alloa. A top appointment for us and fairly certain he will push us on.

    MacPherson and Lennon are easily the two best managers st mirren have had since the 80s in terms of what they achieved at the club. If only we could have the stability we had under those two again....

    Why “fortunately?” He is one of only four men to bring Saints a major Scottish trophy, and led us to our highest finish since the 80s, a finish we haven’t bettered since. Wee Danny has been one of our best managers in many years.

    A lot of words, pure speculation of course, repetitive one-sided speculation Your rant does nothing to address the only real fact that we can be sure of. Six weeks ago (yes 6) speculation appeared in the press regarding our then manager returning to Coleraine. As out of the blue as it was the speculation did not disappear. Low and behold, with the job still open, Mr Kearney goes and falls out with our Mr Scott. Now I do not know what happened but that 6 week old story has left me bloody suspicious, bloody suspicious indeed.

    Literally the most important week of the year in terms of signings. Most players contracts expire on 30th June. Why on Earth is the CEO of a club that is actively in the market for signing several new players, away on holiday now of all weeks? He's the guy that has to be out there at ground level trying to bring these folk in! What exactly was he running over the holiday period? We've not exactly been active in any way shape or form in terms of players incoming so far. That is absolutely criminal if he's on holiday this week of all weeks.

    So to summarise the current speculation on this thread: 1) Oran is not leaving at all and it's all shite. 2) Oran is leaving because of budgets constraints. 3) Oran is leaving because he hates the commute. 4) Oran is leaving because GLS will not tolerate him going home at the weekend. 5) Oran has bought a house in Bridge of Weir. 6) Oran has no plans to ever move over here. 7) Oran has to go back home because his wife might be pregnant. 8 ) Oran is leaving because he has fallen out with GLS. 9) Oran is leaving because he has fallen out with Gus. 10) Oran is leaving because he doesn't get to sign the players. 11) Gus doesn't sign the players either apparently. 12) GLS had to persuade the board to sign Oran. 13) The board had to persuade GLS to sign Oran. 14) Oran is leaving because he can't get to choose his assistant. Did I miss anything?

    Just a little reminder to everyone that this poster is actually a fully grown man, who gets his little joy in life from picking fights with other St Mirren fans on this website This has been going on for years without really any point to it all as far as I can see. You would think from his posts he is about 12, but no. An adult man behaving like this season after season. As they say, there's always someone worse off than yourself

    Both sides are clearly playing the f**king game. Neither is blameless, neither is white than white. Anyone demonizing one side whilst beatifying the other is being absolutely played. SMFC's statement dripped of bitterness and resentment. OK's statement dripped of resentment and bitterness to one of two individuals.

    So....... The players, such as we have returned to training yesterday and are under the eye of Junior Mendes. A bounce game arranged in Belfast on Friday night followed by a training camp in Spain next week. No manager and no new signings in the pipeline. Chairman in America. The deafening wall of silence from the club. Even by the standards of recent years this is shambolic and amateur

    Jim Goodwin is my choice. Has done, with Alloa, a similar sort of job to that which he'd be tasked with here. He took a club on a much smaller budget than their rivals and made them hard to beat, while also playing decent football. He's also a club legend which is a bonus. Just give it to him, if he'll take it.

    For a director or senior manager of any company to go on holiday during a shitstorm which is his responsibility to fix, would be grounds for removing him from his post.

    I take your point completely about quotes, etc (I was a journalist in a previous life and we'd never have run anything without a quote, and offering right of reply was compulsory too) - but I think that narrative does seem to be the most plausible of everything that's come out so far. As a human being with a wife and a young son, I can completely empathise with Oran. Hell, I pretty much refuse to even work late any more as it cuts into time with my boy. Hard to underestimate the strain that being away that much would put on your family as a whole. I think what we're seeing is that Oran has reached the end of his safety net - his former school wanted a decision either way, Coleraine had kept the job open but couldn't for much longer. Do you continue breaking your balls for your football career or do you continue with the life that you were basically enjoying just fine before St Mirren started sniffing around last summer? Money and renown aren't everything. My views as a St Mirren fan may differ slightly, as follows...

    Yeah, its definitely 100% Scott's fault that Oran wanted to change the arrangement from last season, sold his house in Paisley, then conveniently decided he could no longer work with Scott when it turned out that the Coleraine job was back on the table. f**k sake, you don't like Scott, we get it, but are you really so blind you can't see that the one person this all works out perfectly for is Kearney?

    Quite a few numpties using this is a chance to have a go at Gordon Scott without knowing what is going on. I did have a laugh at everyone who believed the rumours about Oran leaving at first - no decent sources but it was a good chance to have a go at the club so they jumped on the bandwagon. Oran had a chance to quash those rumours when asked by the BBC interviewer. It would have been very easy to say he has only just left Coleraine for St Mirren, and it is utterly ridiculous to suggest he is going back. The answer he gave was very weak, it sounded like a politician with a well rehearsed dodge of the question.... I think as the facts come out some are going to look very foolish here. How long is it now Coleraine have been without a manager? They are clearly waiting for OK knowing he has been considering leaving St Mirren and going back. I don't blame Gordon for losing patience with the situation now. It looks like Oran is leaving this week. The club have been going about their business as usual and Gary Mac and Popescu will sign new deals tomorrow. Hopefully Jim Goodwin is in as manager soon by the end of the week and we keep building for the new season..... And the drama queens will move on to something else to scream about!

    From memory we were even shabbier than sacking Danny. Didn't we wait until after the last home game of the season to announce his contract (which had a few weeks left to run on it) would not be renewed? He never even got to say a proper farewell and any compensation paid out after we only finished 8th was minimal.

    Absolute nonsense. Astoundingly bad understanding of our history. If it wasn't for Stewart Gilmour there is a very good chance Reg Brealey would have got hold of the club and there wouldn't be a St Mirren or St Mirren Park any more. Overshadowed by picking a bad manager? Away and gie us peace.

    The games planned in Ireland are very close and the support who have shelled out considerable cash still haven't had confirmation we have a manager. Absolutely unacceptable by the people who are meant to be running our club.
