  1. Supporters disappointed but that is it, not sacking the guy or questioning his appointment for losing to RC away ? Plenty on here falling over themselves to praise his appointment and now 3 games later questioning the whole thing. We didn't need a new manager bounce, if anything it was likely to go the other way as we haven't been all that great up until our wee run of wins. I think Robinson has been dropped in it a bit as I'm not convinced we would have done any better under Goodwin in the last 3 games.
  2. Seriously we have played Hearts and Celtic who are streets ahead of us. RC on a good run of form away is always a tricky fixture. Our good wee run of form wasn't all that great and but for having a superb goalkeeper we would have lost a good few of them. Grieve struggled badly against Hearts, Main made a difference when he came on with his physical strength. I know Main has been mince but Robinson only knows the Main at Motherwell so its not beyond reason to see why he's playing him atm. I'm amazed that Aberdeen took Goodwin. I very much doubt we would have done any better in these 3 games under Goodwin. I know you weren't overly impressed with the appointment of Robinson as I was too but we really need to give the guy a chance. My gut feel is that his teams are a lot more expansive and attack minded that the sterile [email protected] that Goodwin has served up for quite a while. My gut feel also is that there will be quite a bit of change in the summer with contracts finishing and Robinson wanting to build his own team We are very poor overall and for me I think we'll be 3rd bottom, we are not top six at all despite the delusions of many.
  3. So why did McInnes take him to Aberdeen and Goodwin take him to St Mirren? Now Robinson sees something in him. Or do you know something they don't?
  4. Yep and Main was excellant for him so much so McInnes took him to Aberdeen. Main lead the line in a very successful Motherwell side
  5. We wont be top six we are a mile off, just make sure we are outside bottom 2. Hearts are a stick on for Sat. They are miles better than us. I reckon they will take us apart on Sat Robinson has been landed in it but for me will do enough for us to be well outside bottom 2. What i like about him is that he finds the type of football we have been playing utter [email protected] and the quality of player not what he expected. I think we will see root and branch change come close season and then he will be accountable.
  6. Kinda wondering where that reaction was 5 years back when he signed for Clyde. Where was McDermid then ? We also have a First Minister joining in. Not quite getting Clyde Womens team either, a few months back there was no issue now they are all quitting. The council are also effectively saying that if he doesn't admit to it then he's not allowed into Broadwood as well as holding the same gun to the head of Clyde FC. The whole hypocrisy of this actually undermines the actual offence of rape in itself.
  7. We haven't been that great on our run. Getting over the line with odd goal wins. Sat really wasn't a surprise. Few interesting weeks ahead. Interesting to see how Robinson goes about it too
  8. Think we might be seeing a lot more of Main and a bit less of Grieve now that Brophy is fit. Main put in a good shift on Sat
  9. Pension contributions aren't the best !
  10. No its just me saying i'm not coming on here saying he is a great appointment etc when imo he is the result of no better candidate being available at this point. If JG had moved end of the season i think we would have been appointing better! On your post i very much hope its the latter Anyway glad he's in place for Wed as we have a couple of big games coming in next few days. Be nice to get new manager bounce
  11. Yep i agree and FTOF summed up well. I'm just not on a happy clappy ride with Robinson. My view is "he will do"
  12. Have to say this is exactly where i am on this. You've summed it up really well.
  13. no worries, lets see how it pans out. I'm just not as convinced by him as you and others. JR and JG are streets ahead of him as is Malky Mackay and Davie Martindale
  14. Probably means Main will stay as to be fair to Robinson he is the only manager to get a tune out of Main
  15. No surprise there then. Bet if JG read this he would have a good old chuckle at you
  16. I agree with you. I think you've called this right. He ran away from Motherwell when the going got tough. Doing the same at Morcambe and hardly lasted a minute at Oldham. Having said that we will get a bounce from him for a while and then it will tail off. Lets hope we are wrong
  17. I'd take Grant McCann all day long before Robinson. Really hope we don't appoint Robinson. Of all the names currently listed other than Ross, McCann is by far the best
  18. Wouldn't 100% rule it out yet. Club may come back with improved offer. Depends on his reasons for rejecting it initially. Pity as I think he would have been a really good appointment Way better than a rookie, no matter what their credentials
  19. I agree. He could have used SMFC to reboot his profile over the next 2/3 seasons and potentially get another big move. He is a bright guy and will have his reasons, maybe family, financial etc
  20. That is everyone who stands up to Fergie!
  21. Aberdeen are a way bigger club than St Mirren and Jim Goodwin will take this job if offered it. He will have a way bigger budget, stability of squad and can only go upwards. Great stepping stone for him if he reaches the potential that is being attributed to him. Wonder if he would have been in the running 7 games back ?? Was interested to see how we would perform over next 3 games before really getting exited about any prospects we have. Personally if we can attract Jack Ross or Malky Mackay type to SMFC then I'm not overly fussed. Plenty of decent managers out of work at the moment who would be good appointments and every bit as capable as JG in my opinion.
