    Check out the sun article posted by buddies1877. It tells you there that he did.

    Mate, bearing in mind this is a Sun story, if what’s in it is true then I do have some sympathy with the Chairman.  
    It looks like had an agreement with OK re commuting home twice a week and now he wants to turn that into a daily thing? Do you think we’d have given him the gig in the first place if he’d asked for that?
     
    Being Manager of a football club is about more than training and match days I’d imagine. Off the top of my head there will be time required for tactical discussions with his back room team, watching other teams play to get a sense of opponents or even scout new players and even just managing the well being of his squad throughout the season and there must be more.
     
    I’m sure there will be examples of people doing this but I just don’t think it works and the club have every right to question that. If that’s led to a falling out with his boss then there only going to be one winner.
     
    Not sure why compo should be on the table. He should get to his f**king work as per the agreement or suffer the fate anyone else trying to pull those in another walk of life would.
     
    IF this story is true.

    If what Graeme McPherson says is true, I quite simply don't think it's feasible to commute from NI every single day and expect it not to have an adverse effect on your ability to perform your job.
    It is a minimum of 4 hours a day travelling.

    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?

    I've yet to see any article which has quotes from any of the individuals involved in this speculation.
    The usual shit journalism.

    Is that the same SMISA you claimed acted illegally regarding a proxy vote you claimed to have submitted?

    Why won't you provide a single shread of actual evidence to support that claim?

    Or as it appears, you got caught lying and shouldn't be trusted with anything you write or say in that case.

    He should have been rinsed months ago.

    Not surprised he will be, just surprised it’s taken so long.

    Goodwin please.

    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.

    When there has been 5 managers in 3 years including himself, I would be taking my time over my families permanent location too. Club also surely knew where things stood prior to him accepting the job.

    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.

    My understanding, from a reliable source, was at the time of his appointment, GLS "wasn't sure" about OK and would "make a change" if it didn't work out. I would have hoped that keeping us up, even by the skin of our teeth, would have made him sure, especially given the improvement in calibre of player he brought to the club. If OK goes, five permanent managers in the three years since GLS became chairman isnt a good look.

    Well said that man. I was ready to post similar after scrolling through pages of school playground comments.
    I’m all for differing opinions and so on, but there’s no need for such childish behaviour from supposed adults.

    I want to read about speculation (hence the forum title) regardless how far fetched, wishful thinking and speculative they may be.

    Any last chance you had at the club, you would be up the road showing your support in the playoffs. Not this fella. Seems like he has all the wrong attitude

    Cody Cooke was one of our most popular players at the end of the season
    Josh Heaton makes sly digs at the club despite still being an employee 
    Easy to see who’s going to have the better career...

    Attitude & Ability...

    When Heaton was dropped and ended up training with the reserves, he took the huff and ended up getting shipped out on loan.

    Cooke on the other hand could have done the exact same but he got his head down, worked hard and proved many people (especially on here) wrong.

    Looking forward to seeing him develop more next season.

    While the Club that pays his wages and gave him his big chance were playing in the playoffs for their future in the Premiership,  Heaton flew off on holiday. Most players with a Twitter account mention their Club now and then. Not the bold Josh. My impression is he does not give a f**k about St Mirren.

    One of Stubbs' biggest failures was not pursuing the clubs genuine interest in Stewart and alternatively wanting to use his own contacts down south and we ended up with Brock-Madsen

    Fair enough.
    It's a weird one, but I wouldn't be totally distraught if Cooke and Mullen were lining up in our first game of the season.
    I also don't think our squad needs major work (or: we've got he spine of an ok team). This might be sheer delusion after the season we've just had - but if you consider Magennis & MacKenzie were out for long spells, Mullen missed a lot, Cooke was slow getting up to speed and then periodically injured (he says)... we just need to add some real quality around the edges and maybe one or two squad players (which is why missing out on Hodson was disappointing.)
    I'm certainly a lot happier with our squad right now than I was this time last year. If we could do some early business on Popescu, MacKenzie and maybe McAllister (or similar) then we'd be in decent-ish shape for the league cup games, at least.

    The system the board put in place for identifying players post Stubbs, worked fairly successful in such a short space of time, when you look at the January window. I'd like to think leading into the summer window we will be much better prepared to bring in players capable of playing at this level.
