    Quality of squad is irrelevant. Neilson got his motivated. OK hasn't yet

    Much as I want Oran to succeed I have seen or heard nothing that suggests he will. Think he may be out of his depth. If his carer break allows him back into his old job at the end of this season I suspect we won't see him for dust. Robbie Nelson has improved united with no new players. We haven't had that bounce. Hope I am so wrong but watching games like today are doing nothing to assure me. Just as well I'm looking after grand weans tonight so won't touch the demon drink. I need one.

    SOME of the facts.
    What are you trying to say, it's acceptable for Kearney to have 34 games, see us relegated and still blame Stubbs?
    Gies piece, a manager is meant to improve the players, have a decent formation and make decent changes when required, not seeing much of any of that, are you?

    I think we are about the correct level as determined by history. Our mean  average position in Scotland since World War 2 has been between twelfth and thirteenth. Sometimes much better sometimes much worse, usually there or thereabouts. I've no doubt we will be relegated but we will come back up. 
    Have to confess when we won the championship last year I was overjoyed but when watching the open topped bus couldn't help but think we were over the moon at being thirteenth of Scottish clubs ie our normal position.  I was also a bit hacked off that we didn't win it in style against Livi and at the games near the end we certainly didn't look like champions. In fact we never hammered any opponents during that season apart from Dumbarton at home. That has simply carried over but into a far superior league. Jack may have won us the league but certainly left us in a poor state which he may or may not have succeeded in changing. We will never know. Stubbs to his credit recognised that but totally screwed up trying to recover from it. 
    We are where we are and it's not a million miles from where we usually are. I never rated Danny Lennon but he took us above our normal level and also got us a cup which did merit an open topped bus. By reverse Stubbs took us the other direction. Twas always thus

    And there lies one of our problems. Robbie Nelson seems to have Dundee Utd back on track but appears to have been scared off us by our unrealistic ambitions. Wonder if that was Tony.  Tony was a great player for us but has failed in all other roles ie manager and CEO. He seems a genuinely nice guy but I fear his influence may, unwittingly, be negative.

    Perhaps the w7 lot should show their solidarity and boycott today's game and catch up on some of their school homework instead . ( some of them are far to old for school and should grow up) Oh for an afternoon of peace from juvenile antics and banging a drum. Just want to support my team and see a victory without being annoyed and embarrassed by a bunch of immature wee boys.

    Fully agree. Hanging on till the window is critical. It is now clear that no manager is going to do much with this bunch of players. The big problem was the quality of Stubbs signings. Maybe just maybe Stubbs got it right about last seasons squad in terms of being able to compete in this league. Regrettably his recruitment was abysmal so the problem didn't get sorted.  I think some of last seasons squad think more highly of themselves than they merit on current showing. They were the players who went in the huff and need to take a look at themselves. S. McGinn and Smith were rotten yesterday I'm afraid and need to get  their acts together.  I always assumed they would cope at this level but looks though I'm wrong. Hope they prove me wrong. If Oran can keep us in the league given where we are now he will deserve legendary status.

    I hope those players who took the huff at Stubbs act more professionally with the next manager. They have gone way down in my opinion and appear to think they are a lot better than  they actually are.  They have a lot to prove.

    But if he came to wave to the fans at the end all would be forgiven. Much more important than getting results. Would bring us all together to share the misery.

    Maybe OK at home as I'm not near them but I move to steer clear of them at away games. I know they are just kids albeit some of them are a good bit older and need to grow up. The behaviour is juvenile and annoying rather than being threatening. Just like a lot of people on here. 
    I love being old and being able to criticise the young from my high moral ground.

    Oldfellow got a reaction from Tommy in Big Signing Happening Now....   
    Regrettably letting Tony anywhere near the business side of things is guaranteed to be a failure. Never understood why we appointed a chief exec who clearly does not have any qualities for that role. I know he loves the club. So do I but I wouldn't be able to do the chief exec job. Frankly I find his ridiculous comments embarrassing. I wonder if the length of contract Stubbs  has was Tony's doing.  Presumably GLS is able to curb Tony's excesses. I certain ly hope so
