    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    A bizarre and unsuccessful appointment.

    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    It's a long term strategy with a potential downside if we get relegated, IMO it would make perfect sense to have a get out clause if GLS feels it isn't working. As for the rest of your post IMO it's irrelevant who got the position but I'd like to make a few points , firstly the newspaper article is ambiguous I don't see a clear indication that OK wanted Nicholl as TD, secondly Nicholl's last successful managerial spell was his first with Raith in the last millennium, third his recent career includes a few appointments as assistant to old colleagues - there's a reason he was available.

    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    It's a long term strategy so yeah five years. I already pointed out the possibility of us being top heavy in terms of managers should we be relegated. Totally redundant post!

    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    Clubs seem to change managers every two years or so these days (there's a guy who keeps a thread on P&B which monitors this and currently only 13/42 SPFL managers have more than 2 years tenure) so if it avoids total squad rebuilds then it's a position that should pay for itself. It would certainly have been useful this summer when we spent over a month in limbo. My worries are the terms MacPerson is getting - what length of contract should he get? I think it should be 5 years - longer than a typical manager's deal but not permanent. Would a contract with no fixed term make him unsackable or would he effectively be on 90 days notice like me? We tend to run with a managerial team of 3 in the top flight and 2 when we get relegated, so if we decide the experiment hasn't worked it might be a cheap get out. Anyway fingers crossed as we move into this brave new world that has such people in't.

    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    Any info on the length of the contract?

    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    Does this appointment mean we’re not replacing Darren Jackson?
  7. I reckon the banner in question was pretty innocuous.
  8. Was the original not by The Crickets (without Buddy)?

    Saints v Celtic, Friday 14th September

    Slightly disappointing to see @ 3:27 a different camera angle that shows #supersaintssteward is in fact a fan.

    Never indulged in a bit of schadenfreude yourself?

    Bitter Rivals: Iran & Saudi Arabia. Three part series on PBS America (Sky 160) about the ongoing struggle between the two countries which started in 79 when Ayatollah Khomeni's Revolutionary Govt (Shia) took control of Iran. In response to these events the Saudi royal family did a U-turn on attempts to liberalize their country and re-adhered to the Wahabi (Sunni) clerics and Sharia Law. Since then the struggle has been fought all over the Middle East, currently most noticeably in Yemen and beyond (present UK Terrorist Threat Level - Severe). An ongoing tragedy.

    Hamilton v St Mirren 22/9/18

    Looking for the same attitude as last Friday night. A point would be OK and keep us above Accies - three would be much, much better! COYS!

    Ten Years After

    I'd take the chance on the flood. I'm sure even the boneheads who remain could devise something better than the current pensions racket. So tame and yet so vilified!
