The point is that, I don’t think we can assume if Jack was still here we’d be having a good season.
Last year with a team including Morgan, our best player in recent years, we lost heavily in cup ties against premier league teams. Remember 0 - 5 to Patrick Thistle, that was just last season, and it was live on TV.
The year before, a 2 - 0 win at Dundee was great but we were then gubbed by Celtic in a game where our competitiveness was comparable to this year.
I thought Jack was a good manager and I was sorry to see him go. Although I would’ve questioned his sanity if his response to big clubs trying to recruit him was “Nah, I’d rather stay at St.Mirren”
Sunderland fans see him as a nice guy but tactically naive and out of his depth.
Maybe we would be doing better if he was still here but I’m far from convinced.
I can’t shake the feeling that you could make a strong case for believing that OK and JR are mangers at roughly the same level.
