    Aberdeen v St Mirren 16/02/2019

    Schoolboys should respect their elders. What exactly did I say that was incorrect

    Aberdeen v St Mirren 16/02/2019

    Yet again someone on here getting all misty eyed over a glorious past that never existed. We have always had a dreadful record up there. I've been going there with saints since the sixties and can only recall two wins, maybe three and very few draws. Hopefully I get a pleasant surprise today.
  3. If so I hope its announced quickly as I've got other options for that day that I need to commit to in the next couple of days.

    The championship

    Didn't say that. I'll repeat. Better in Premier league.

    Magic has gone..

    I'll always go and always will as long as I'm able but appreciate where you are coming from I do think Scottish football is in a dreadful state due to the power and adoration of the old firm. I wish they would go to England but that ain't going to happen. I know our league would be less well off financially but it would still be more enjoyable than what we have.

    The championship

    Would always rather be in the Premier but we need to find a way to progress in it. A few seasons of just surviving isn't going to bring in the crowds. A successful championship will but we all know how difficult it is to get there after relegation.

    Don't think he did anything extraordinary. I was comparing what we have now with him. What we have now I actually think is a negative influence. Brian was steady if unspectacular. I also can't believe Tony does or is capable of doing the full range of duties. I may be wrong but that's how it looks to me.

    The championship

    For as long as I can remember there has been no spark at board level and that is where the club is driven from. I'm not saying we should have a board that overdpends but we need one bursting with energy and we don't have that. In Brian Caldwell we had a steady if not stunning CEO. I have a feeling his Board would not give him much space as they appeared to enjoy the power. We nowhave someone who if he has a role certainly isn't doing much other than making embarrassing remarks Managerially TH and JRwere a breath of fresh air. Gus achieved a lot but hardly got the enthusiasm levels high. I also tend to think that there is a closed shop feel about the place at non playing levels that needs to be addressed.

    The championship

    Agree with all of that. Since world war 2 our mean average league position has been between 12th and 13th so we are really where we usually are. On that basis a regime that gets us above tenth is I think successful and one that has us below fifteenth is a failure. I actually thought Danny was a poor manager but on reflection he did rather well given the above If we want to advance need to have a better CEO at the helm. Compare Leanne Dempster at Hibs with Tony and it becomes obvious. Likewise on the commercial front the set up seems stagnant and can think no further than having yet another dinner. We have a long way to go but clearly our current structure and staff in post does not provide the answer

    TF is a liability in his current role, not a magician.

    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    Great to visit other grounds and have a good day out. If however it is to pay homage to Jack Ross l I think the individuals involved need to think how this looks to Oran who should be getting support rather than get a message that they all wish Jack was still here. Stop living in the past. Jack left because he wanted to. Oran is going to get more of the same on Saturday when Jim Goodwin takes the plaudits from those who would like him as manager. If Oran saves us from relegation it will far outweigh anything Jack did. Will they then follow him to his next job or is it just good looking smooth talking Jack they have a crush on.
  12. I felt he displayed naivety, didn't seem to be a realist, was impulsive and intellectually and experience wise had an inappropriate background. As an aside and for what it's worth I suspect there was a lot of exaggeration in the book. I also didn't like the writing style albeit I'm sure it wasn't Tony writing it. It certainly didn't seem it was Tony talking to me. Perhaps I'm not the brightest but I found it rather patronising.
  13. Having just read the book I'm now convinced that he is never a CEO in a month of Sundays. Great player, rubbish manager and CEO.

    W7 Fans & Banners

    Why does the club continually pander to this bunch of schoolboys and adults who act like schoolboys. They don't improve the atmosphere. I can't hear them from w2 anyway and theyare a nuisance at away games.

    St. Mirren v The Rangers, 3rd November 2018

    I see in the Times today Graham Speirs singles out Ryan Edwards as always being a poor player including Saturday. I disagree and wonder if Speirs has forgotten Edwards is a Hearts player. Hearts a team that Speirs loves saw fit to sign him. He is a better footballer than the annoying Speirs is a journalist. I remember last year how sorry Speirs was that Dundee Utd didn't get promoted as they were so important to Scottish football. He never praised us at all to the best of my knowledge. In short I can't stand Speirs and just needed to say it.
