  1. He'd get us to top six and then get sacked
  2. Livi will be above us if we appoint Neilson. Wrong appointment.
  3. Zero, none are good enough. Wouldn't suprise me though is Jack Ross took McAllister from Derby.
  4. Yeah I suppose getting Livi promoted 2 seasons in a row should rule him out. Doubt he knows much being an ex top level player as well
  5. What, 2 failures?. We need better than these two. Neilson utterly failed at MK. Wouldn't touch him. Pressley getting quoted is beyond belief. Chap Billy Davies's door again. I know not popular but better than anything i have seen suggested. Hearts would have appointed him if he hadn't told Levein he would run the show
  6. Completely agree, Sunderland is the role to take of the 2. Goody may be a bit early but showing all the potential.
  7. Great job for Jack Ross to get. What an opportunity. Wish him all the best.
  8. Adams had been sacked by McGregor at Ross County so the shine had come off. No shame in that as the clown then sacked Jim McIntyre and promptly appointed Coyle ! The interesting bit about this is that Derek Adams is not being quoted for vacant jobs. He'd done a brilliant job at Plymouth and has shown he more than has what it takes. Maybe Adams is more than happy where he is but I would have thought a few Championship teams would have taken note of what he has done at Plymouth on a small budget. I can't quite get why Jack Ross would be ahead of guys like this in England. Jack Ross is totally untested at a decent level.
  9. Funny, I was wondering why Sunderland weren't in the mix for Jack Ross. Perfect time to take over manager role at Sunderland, new owners, new investment, big club at rock bottom, only way is UP. Better job than Ipswich if he got it right. Never for a minute thought Jack Ross would be at St Mirren next season and he's spot on to go to if he gets the right option.
  10. Yes but the minute Levien wasn't by his side he totally flopped. I think he's a bad choice, an obvious one but a bad one. I think he's smug and arrogant also.
  11. As an Ipswich Town fan having lived and worked there and been season ticket holder, couldn't be more delighted if Ipswich get Jack Ross. As a St Mirren supporter all my days its the complete opposite !! Haven't believed for a minute that Jack Ross would be our manager next season, so no suprise. He has the potential to be a top top manager and deserves his chance.
  12. If Ipswich Town offer Jack Ross the job he will take it in a heartbeat. I doubt he will get a better opportunity. He'd be a fool not to.
  13. I think he's sorry to see a talent and young life destroyed by a serious drink problem, that your punishment has no effect on or solution to!
  14. Probably because he has a serious drink problem. The trouble he is getting into in life won't stop probably until he stops drinking full stop. Many people are very thick on the influence and destruction that alcohol can bring to an individuals life.
  15. Well when sitting at the bottom of the Championship in a complete mess, with his record in management I kinda see his point !
  16. He was second choice for St Mirren job. Why would anyone turn down a club like Ipswich to stay in the Scottish Premiership. The more I have thought about it, i'm not sure he will get a better chance if offered the job. As it is I think if he goes we should swallow any pride and go back in for Billy Davies to replace him !!!
  17. Why would they be wrong on that ? Ipswich appointing Ross is a far greater risk than appointing Hurst. Hurst is proven in England in lower leagues and well capable of stepping up to Championship. Ross has won effectively the English Conference if your being generous about Scottish Championship !
  18. I think Ipswich should go for Hurst over Ross. Hurst has done an outstanding job at Shrewsbury and could very well get them into Championship. Ross has in effect won the Conference in England. Ross is untested at a higher level and for me Ipswich would be taking a far bigger gamble appointing him over Paul Hurst. A lot of people getting carried away over Jack Ross also. Lets see how St Mirren perform next season if he still here. Not doubting his achievements for a minute but things can easily change. Paul Hartley, Bill Reid, Robbie Neilson, Alan Archibald are a few who's stock was very high and now they are seen as also rans. Remeber Tom Hendrie also who could do no wrong then along came Premiership and he was out of his depth.
  19. Mick McCarthy and Terry O'Connor left so space for Fowler. Wouldn't be as sure about Jack Ross taking it, 50/50 on that one
  20. Mick McCarthy is an outstanding manager at Championship level in England. 100 times the experience of Jack Ross. There position in the league this season is due to his work ! He has got them to a few play off positions on a shoestring also. Unless Evans is going to invest in the club then I think its the wrong move for Jack Ross on a football basis. Financially for him maybe.
  21. I agree. Its a brutally difficult job with the resources they have. They are a superb club though.
  22. Correct but the lack of transfer kitty is the issue. Expectations of support are high, but no money to sustain them. Hence I think Jack Ross will not take it. Unless Evans is going to invest again.
  23. Lived in Ipswich for 4 years and was season ticket holder also. Ipswich are a fantastic club but if I was Jack Ross, on balance I wouldn't take this job. 5 years ago I would have said bite their hand off. Since Marcus Evans arrived the level of investment in playing squad has consistently decreased to the point where they rely on a superb youth system and picking up loan signings (bit like us !). Mick McCarthy done a fantastic job but was hounded out by sections of the support and I think Ipswich could bitterly regret it. 12 clubs in the Championship now have parachute payments of which Ipswich is not one, so the gap is enormous. Having said that Marcus Evans is a brilliant chairman for managers to work under and maybe he is prepared to reinvest in the club. Also Wagner had nowt at Huddersfield when he started and his talent delivered everything. I think it would be a huge gamble for both Jack Ross and Ipswich. If I was Jack Ross i would do a year in Premiership in Scotland. I knew Ipswich would approach him, not suprised at all, but a very difficult job. Think Jack should speak to Mick McCarthy first !
  24. Jack Ross's way of walking circles round certain fans. McShane, Baird, Reilly all dropped for better players
