    If something has become a legal matter as mentioned today in the papers, surely you can understand the club cannot comment directly to fans until this is resolved. 
    To me, it seems like they have considered decisions, looking at the long term and questioning the managers commitment. They have shown leadership by taking action.
    I lik Oran, he brought that same feel good factor unity that JR did, though whatever happens, the board are acting in the clubs best interests. They may be businessman, though they are also fans like the rest of us.

    He was asked by the media prior to our two playoff games about the Coleraine vacancy and he didn't really deny any interest, or show any sorts of indication that this is where he wanted to be long term. He said at the time, my main focus is these two playoff games. 
    From the newspapers today, its revealed his old PE job is still open for another 3 months and tying that in with the vacancy at Coleraine, you can't help but think he would want to return to that and think the only way he can have anywhere near close to that family time over here, is to ask to commute daily, which i completely stand with board on this one. It is completely unreasonable at club level to have that flexibility. 
    People can compare the commute in duration all they like with mainland ones, though this is completely different and would most likely restrict a lot of the work that is required of a fulll-time football manager. 
    Being a family man myself, I can completely understand OK must be finding it difficult with time away from his wife and kids and respect he is putting family first, though it doesnt seem to have ended in a nice way.
    I think GS has every right to question the manager he employs about long-term commitment. It says that after requesting a daily commute he came to a compromise of a couple of days a week again, though, that clearly showed he would first and foremost wish to travel home more often rather than think to settling here permanently.

    I believe, for once, we are not at fault.
    Oran wanted a year in the big playground. He had it.
    But it finished in May and he should have returned to his Teaching Job and Coleraine FC then.
    No way should there be an additional pay off.
    He done his stint and was paid what he was due.
    Is there an Agent lurking, being a greedy cnut  ?
    Give him feck all, Gordon.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
