  1. No physical likeness to me but around same age and even more cantankerous than Victor. Get embarrassed for some of our fans the way they act
  2. I recall travelling up to Dingwall a few years back to find the game was called off for a waterlogged pitch just over half an hour before kick off. Lot of time and money wasted but it didn't matter as I m a super fan
  3. Reading on twitter that potentially 500 plus fans going down to Wrexham. I hardly miss a first team game home or away but will not be attending this as I don't agree with the format of this competition although if it was a first team game I would be there. People making silly comments about this being like a European tie. I wonder how many of those going down were at Dumbarton for a previous round. I wonder if those who weren't at Dumbarton are going for the football or a night out. No doubt there will be embarrassing scenes as our youthful fans "enjoy" themselves around town. Reason enough to stay away. Only hope they do not tarnish the reputation of our club especially if our colts do well.
  4. As Aberdeen are playing in Europe next Thursday I assume this game will be moved to Sunday 11th August
  5. Tony acting the idiot yet again. Should have stayed on holiday. Why would anyone want to manage us with him spouting drivel in the background. I'd love to be well up the league but let's not beat ourselves with a rod of our own making. Tony should concentrate on doing his own duties to the highest standard which he hasn't done as far as I can see. Leave Jim to manage without needless pressure.
  6. Maybe Coleraine are far from squeaky clean in what's been going on. I take that back if they don't appoint OK as their new manager
  7. Mr and Mrs Kearney are at it. I'm becoming convinced this has all been engineered. But what do I know. I wonder if Orans father in law has been advising them at all
  8. Sorry forgot that Tony walks on water and is such a nice guy. Why would not being up to the job be a reason to get rid of such a god like figure
  9. Fact 1 Oran Kearney is no longer our manager 2 Gordon Scott owns the club and can do whatever he wants if its legal 3 the past is past and we can't change it. We can learn from it but can't change it Opinion 1 We need to get on with preparing for the new season and get a new manager in place immediatly. Forget all the seeking applications stuff. We should know exactly who we want 2 Oran has never been sure if he wanted to stay. His holiday with his family made him see how much he misses them That plus a wee push from Coleraine convinced him that if he could get more time home he would stay and if not he would go. He probably didn't bargain on the reaction from GLS. I don't think he would have got such an extreme action if he did this five weeks ago. 3 Orans statement has a whiff of martyrdom about it. Ie I'm being hard done by whereas I don't think he comes out of this smelling of roses and is trying to deflect blame from himself 4 it is best for him. He can go back to his old life which I don't think he really ever wanted to leave for more than a year. He will manage Coleraine again but may not be held with the same reverence as before 5 I would have been indifferent if he stayed but am happy he has gone. The timing is rotten though. I don't think he will ever be sought again by other clubs of a better stature than NI or the South of that island 6 I wish our fans would stop prioritising having exciting football. OK never gave us that and we are unlikely to get that and stay out of the relegation zone. I'll take defensive football if it means freedom from relegation problems 7 I hope we appoint Jim Goodwin and only if we can't get him offer it to Gus. Jim would be a good committed manager and would satisfy the mindless section of our support who are impressed by someone telling them how wonderful they are and wavi g to them at the end of the game. In short he can hold it all together 8 Another hope based on an opinion. I hope we get a new CEO. I believe this is a huge weakness at the club just now and needs to be sorted.
  10. No official comment yet. I assume whoever runs the Web site is on holiday
  11. Tony should not be going on holiday at such an important time. He should be going during the season. Clearly he cannot be sacked while taking an authorised holiday but incompetence is the stuff of disciplinary action This situation has been rumbling on for a while and should have been nipped in the bud right after the playoffs. If it meant Kearney going then so be it. Incompetent management. I'm not bothered that Kearney has gone. I am concerned about our ability to act sensibly now. We cant undo what is done but we can act to minimise damage. Not convinced we are up to the challenge. If nothing else this does show the need to have a competent CEO. I know the incumbent is a super guy with St. Mirren blood in his veins. That doesn't make a good CEO although some on here seem to think that's what's required. Let's waken up.
  12. I'm not bothered about Kearney going. He is an average manager. I thought he would resign after the play offs as he clearly wasn't fully committed. It's the timing that bugs me. Leaves us scampering around to put a team together. Yet another manager telling the fans how wonderful they are leaving us in the lurch. Remember Jack Ross. At least Stubbs shite as he was didn't kid on he was interested. We cannot mess around recruiting by considering applications. We need to appoint now. Probably McPherson if Goodwin is too difficult.
  13. Totally agree. Perhaps if he spent more time improving how the club functions eg ticketing system he might fulfil the role of a proper CEO. Being a CEO requires a lot of skills very few of which he appears to have. Frankly I'm fed up with him. I know he loves the club. So do I but I would be a crap CEO.
  14. I see that the club are paying for supporters buses on Thursday. I assume the thinking is that all real supporters go on those buses and the rest of us who go every week are not so worthy. I'm not looking for my petrol to be refunded but would rather the club didn't subsidise buses as it sends a rather strange message
  15. Dundee utd have a history of being nasty on line about us. It is shocking that this is on an official site rather than some wee boy having a pop at us on p&b. They are one of the clubs I dislike most along with Hearts, Falkirk and Dunfermline all of whom have been disrespectful to us and therefore deserve to suffer
