    Great news, Jack is not good enough for the top division, seems to have found his level.

    Out the league Cup before our last game in this group is an embarrasment.

    Just reinforces what everyone knows, that the vast majority of the squad aren't good enough for the top flight.

    Both our strikers missing penalties as well, minter.

    He somewhat overstates Kearney's abilities.  Good man management did not compensate for lack of tactical nous.  We had 3 or 4 acceptable performances in his time and a lot of luck with sending-offs in the run in.
     
    Let's face it, the only excitement was generated by our precarious position and the fact that neither Dundee or Hamilton had enough to pull away from us.

    The football was indeed dire and we came within a penalty shoot out of being relegated.
    I appreciate he inherited a clusterf**k of a squad but we had some great players in there for the 2nd half of the season and Kearney could certainly have done a lot more with them.

    Kearney's position should have been utter threat even without all the talk of backroom falling out. The majority of the season we were utterly awful, and our run towards the end wasn't full of massively convincing performances. We survived on penalty kicks. With an awful Hamilton team finishing above us and generally having the better of us. For me, he just didn't show enough tactical or man management skills to consistently get the team looking competitive on the park.

    It's bizarre that Kearney didn't have a replacement for Rice or Nicol lined up for the end of the season, when one had gone, and he must have known the other was gone as well. That suggests that there's been some uncertainty for some time.

    Scott doesn't have a great record with picking managers, but he's backed every single one that he's had in terms of bringing in players. Only Alex Rae hasn't been allowed to sign an entire new squad, and that's because he was already in place and unwanted.

    The ideal situation is Coleraine or another Irish team give us some compensation for Kearney and we move in a different direction.

    I'm surprised that so many people seem to think Scott is the problem. I wouldn't call him trigger happy because he's got rid of poor managers.

    Rae and Stubbs definitely fall into that category, and Kearney is on the cusp.

    Every manager we've had under Scott, bar Rae, has been allowed to sign close to entirely new squad, hardly a poisonous act.

    MacPhersons appointment appears to have worked with our January signings, and it's vital that we have someone at the club with the oversight and knowledge of transfer dealings. Along with another pair of eyes to scout opposition and players.

    He got it wrong with Stubbs, quickly made a change to fix that, and although I don't think Kearney is the right choice, plenty of fans do, but our overall form and performances under him is enough to get rid of him, even without any other background drama.

    Was instrumental in getting us relegated last time, and if he gets the job (if its available), I'm pretty sure he'll do that again.

    My personal opinion is that most of our tactics,way we shape up,subs on and off was all Jimmy nichol decisions,never once seen him do anything without talking to nichol first then making decisions, and people saying it was gus that identified and signed January players ,not Kearney,so strange

    People are overly harsh on Heaton, very few people would turn down a higher wage and the chance to play at a higher level.

    Not his fault the board sanctioned the fee for him either.

    I like Dreyer and think if true he would be a good one to kick on, maybe become permanent? McAllister for me was disappointing in most games and failed to harnass his talent and contribute in every game.
    the bit anout the winning formula is stretching things a bit far, we stayed up in the play off penalty shoot out. Lets not over play it. We will resume one of the favourites to finish down there again, unless/until he really does find a winning formula!

    Always find it amusing when someone replies with a post full of irrelevance!  
    On the point I was posting about, Kearney’s signings being far better than Stubbs’, the indisputable fact I pointed out is that there were 2 Stubbs signings in the sides that won the play offs and 2 Kearney outfield signings, with one of them being homegrown McAllister.
     
    The other indisputable fact is that Stubbs wanted rid of fans’ favourite Cammy Smith and there was a meltdown on this forum from roasters like yourself.
     
    And then Kearney got rid of him!
     
    I didn’t post an opinion about it, just straight facts.
     
    You replied with irrelevance, hearsay and made up fantasy.... none of which alters the facts I posted!
     
    If you intend making more lengthy replies at least try and make them relevant to the points I make!

    What about the first 20, or so, games? 
    I made this exact point many times, good managers can improve a set of players, yet the only reply was they were the previous manager's players and that seemed acceptable.
    Funny that.

    If Tony wasn't a St. Mirren man, he wouldn't still be in his current role.

    His positivity is better suited to a club ambassador role rather than actually trying to run the club.

    Absoulte nonsense. Nothing wrong with ambition. Lots wrong with saying its where we SHOULD be though when it's clearly untrue. 
    In a cheif exec role, coming away with this is potentially harmful to recruitment. 
    Can imagine targets like: Top 4 club you say? You'll be offering out wages to match likes of Hearts or Hibs then.

    Focusing on the last 6-8 games everything I've said is true. The previous 28-26 I'd have said we've appointed someone who has no idea in how to organise a team to get results. Tactically naive, and has no idea how to get the most out of limited players, even if it means shit festing games to get a point. Kearney was utter shite for the majority of this season, to the extent he was totally out his depth, even if his predecessor was worse.

    I'd struggle to agree with anyone who thinks we've actually setup well against anyone. We look out of sorts even in the games we've won, toiling for large periods in games with only ourselves to blame.
     
    Kearney is too stuck on the rigid 5-4-1 formation. Even if one is supposed to play off the striker.
     
    The personal used are far too static for the tactic, and the constant use of playing out from the back to shell the ball forward towards a small lone striker instead of into the channels has caused us all sorts of grief.
     
    We actually look alright when we up the tempo, against Accies Flynn actually came on and carried the ball forward to create. Kearney needs to stop playing Lyons and McAllister together, because they drift out of games for far too long tell McGinn to stay deep, he's fine as a ball player but he's so static that any passes in attack are side to side as teams sit in. Play a bigger striker to feed off if we are continuing to play though the centre backs, as their passing is crap. Give us the chance of a second ball.
     
    Our pressing is non existent for the majority of games, probably because our players aren't athletic enough to take turns pressing the opposition relentlessly throughout the game, to force mistakes in the opposition area.
     
    I've still not seen anything from Kearney from a tactical standpoint that's impressive.

    I think that's incredibly harsh on both of them. I think both have useful qualities. Nazon actually runs at defenders, and Cooke actually attempts to bully people.

    Our strikers haven't been anywhere near good enough this year, however the service they've received has been substandard.
