    Well Said Tony

    Great post sir

    Anton Ferdinand

    The lad only a couple of years ago went for a fee of £500k to Barnsley. He has been brought up at a decent level and hasn't played any lower than League 1 in England. I have seen parts of his game which is fairly good, then other parts that he either needs improvement on, or he has just been affected by the last management team in place. The other lads who have had little game time need a clean slate also, even the non league players who were classed as not good enough by a minority because of the level they were playing at. I am excited about what OK can bring to this team and breathe the positive effect back in, that was left behind by JR and Fow.

    Welcome Oran Kearney

    Reach for the stars. I wouldn't expect anything less from our manager regardless of it being realistic or not. Your drum that winning mentality into your daily routine you can achieve to the best of your abilities.

    Stubbs' Signings

    Abusing any of our own players is a disgrace. They have been caught in the mix of unfortunate events and when morale is low it's hard to pick yourself up as a team. Hopefully with a morale booster from better man management under OK, these players will thrive and play to the best of their ability and get our season on track, as I feel the players signed by Stubbs are not bad players, he's just didn't know how to deploy them as a unit.

    Stubbs Sacked

    There is every chance this scout guy was hired prior to Stubbs coming in. He seems like he's based on a different country and scouts in other countries. It's possible Stubbs and co were not interested in using an overseas coach and used their own knowledge of down south and their own contacts. Jackson used to be a scout for Blackburn afterall, prior to coming to us .

    Stubbs can go now

    I hope they are selling popcorn at the next home game

    Stubbs can go now

    One thing I never actually considered till now was that the compensation received for Jack and Fow from Sunderland may already have covered at least half of the 3 year deals for the trio.

    I think if it wasn't for the 3 year contract there would be less hesitation here on the managers position. You could also say on the flip side on the basis of only 4 league games it would be unfair to call for his head. It took JR 3-4 months into his season to get results and a formula working, difference being he inherited all of his squad and had time to change in his first transfer window. Would the same length of time be fair to give Stubbs with the recent performances? I am unsure how long is enough time, as he has not only dismantled a winning squad(some departures plausible), though made some poor decisions on replacements, bar a few and not even looked close to being a team to compete for 90mins. We have paid compensation for one of his coaching staff, appointed an assistant, spent significant money on a player who was not seen as ready standard to compete for a starting place and left some of the players from last season feeling they don't have a place in the team, when it's evident to see that they way be every bit worthy of a chance to play Infront of his signings. The failure to bring in early targets, whether they were solid or not seems to have cost him in his plans of building a formula in time for the season to start. Its a costly decision to make. 3 coaching staff on long-term deals plus the fact we paid compensation for one(no idea what that cost was). Would a new manager be able to come in and assemble the same squad and make us more capable of competing? How long will the next guy get? As much as I hate to say it, we will be waiting a very long time to see anything again like we did under JR and Fow.

    Speculation Thread

    Accies paid a fee for Keating's. The lad has barely kicked a ball and has some personal issues that have been documented online. I really don't think we have missed out here to be honest, plus he's unproven at this level.

    Ryan Edwards

    I don't have an issue with signing a central midfielder, as when you take the inexperienced MacPherson and Erhahon, as well as the sparingly used Mcashane into the equation, who looked surplus to requirements, we maybe did need another central player who will push others for competition. My main concern is the failure to find another striker. We are so light in numbers up front. Did we replace Ross Stewart with Brock and not fill Reilly's void? Maybe Cammy will convert to a forward as part of a front two, though this is the biggest disappointment for me. We could improve on our defensive duties as the season goes on, though if you don't have the fire power up top you are not going to win points.

    Ryan Edwards

    From what i believe Edwards is versatile too in terms of sitting in a defensive and attacking role from midfield. I really hope we push the boat out for a striker now. Please!

    Ryan Edwards

    I've got a feeling McShane may possibly be on that list. Not sure if hes injured or not, though not featured much under Stubbs. Cammy MacPherson or Erhahon also may find themselves loaned out. We are in an unfortunate position that probably 3 of our injured players would most likely have moved on if they were fit during this window, so that is 3 places filled.

    Yeah, i think sometimes its about how you set yourself up against the bigger teams and hit them on the counter or at a set-piece. We have competed okay in some of these games in the past, though its mostly how you take your small amount of opportunities and set yourself up hard to beat. The 4-0 8 years ago we won v Celtic was a one-off, or certainly one we won't see for some time.

    I would say if we are left so open to a tanking, like the Aberdeen game, even against the next two teams, it's still fair to judge a teams performance. With all respect to Hamilton, they lost 1-0 to Celtic the other week. Celtic in many people's eyes should have strolled the game.

    Just as well your not in charge of finances. Agree a small small part of it should be used though I'd rather work with cash that's available and use any further funds in January.
