    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    Impressed by the number of magnanimous posters on here. A credit to B&WA. I, on the other hand, hope Sunderland lose every game next season and get papped into League 2, the tapping-up basturds.

    Speculation Thread

    Aye, mebbes but given a choice between Hayes and a certain trophy-laden young winger now on Celtic's books, I know who I'd prefer.
  3. A few mentions about the need to bring in new central midfielders. Surely everyone realises that Jack is going to announce Wee Stevie Mallan signing back on for the season?

    Dale Hilson

    Davis missed most of the run-in due to injury. O'Brien, while a definite improvement on Clangers, was nothing to write home about. I'll give you Mallan and Loy though. Decent striker still required I reckon.

    Dale Hilson

    Scored two goals last season. Presumably only intended as back-up to Rory Loy when he signs

    Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    Naw he's not. Just called him and got: "You've reached the voicemail for Jack Ross, manager of the greatest football club on earth. I'm not available right now but if you'd like to leave your name, number and short message, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Unless you're calling on behalf of Dundee FC in which case, I've already said no so please f*ck off and let me enjoy my holiday"

    Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    Here's Jack telling Dundee where to get to.
  8. Paul Hartley with Ross Tokely as his assistant. Perfick.

    Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    Once Jack's back from his well earned holiday/bunk-up with Div, would like him to declare one way or the other as soon as possible. Uncertainty over the manager's position is going to play merry hell with our recruitment over the close season so much as I desperately want Jack to stay, if he is going to go I'd rather he did it quickly so we can get on with replacing. Players like Stelios and Harry Davis who are busy considering another season in sunny Paisley will be reading this kind of stuff and thinking twice. Hopefully Jack knows Neil McCann from their media stuff and can get the inside track on just what a basket case Dundee are.

    Stephen Mallan

    Then a few folk on here are wrong. "Lovely" is not an adjective you will often hear associated with Barnsley. Even by people from Barnsley. Having said that, a cheeky wee pre-season tour of Yorkshire would be spot on. Especially a trip at Bootham Crescent for some MacNamara-baiting

    St Mirren Contract thread

    This, very much so.

    St Mirren Contract thread

    Pretty much unheard of for a manager to bring in ten new signings in the January window and for not one of them to be a dud (although to be fair I've seen virtually nothing of the Scandinavian lad). That's an astonishing strike rate and based on that alone, I'd be happy to just wait and trust JR to bring in whoever he needs. Worst case scenario has Mallan and Morgan getting moves to Premiership/some diddy English team and McGinn moving on as well. I remember when Jack brought Stevie McGinn in he was pretty clear that McGinn was too good for this level and we were lucky to have him.
  13. Sure about that bud? End of February we were 8 points adrift at the bottom of the league. Against that background, having to slaughter a couple of diddy teams to stay in the Championship ain't too shabby.

    That Goal!

    Are we saying that today's goal was better than Mallan's masterpiece against Dundee a couple of seasons back?
  15. Some insightful pre and post-match punditry from Greenock's answer to Gary Neville. Oh dear.
