Next St Mirren Manager

Recommended Posts


Advertise the position, rule out the obviously shite applicants (Dibbles Old Paperboy and Jimmy Calderwood), then interview the ones that are likely candidates. Appoint the person who most closely fits the bill.

My reading of that would be a person of the 'Paul Hartley' generation who hasn't been around the block and is looking for a possibly final payday. Someone with balls who won't stand for any shite, would command respect, and as a younger manager, has something to prove.

There must be people out there who could make a fist of it.

Poxbaird. Thoroughly agree with you. Can you e-mail Messrs Gilmour Campbell McAuslsnd and Marshall please.I am now just sick of things this season. Couldn't even shout on Saturday due to my sore throat. To start with Thommo as a lone striker due to his fitness levels age weather conditions was totally inexcusable.

There were 60 applicants for the Motherwell job.

Given our superb setup at the club I really don't think we would be short of applicants. The training facility and the still "new" stadium facilities would be very appealing to most managers.

I reckon in "normal" circumstances that Tommy would be gone by now. I can't help but feel the club is very close to being sold and that can be the only reason for a lack of action in that department.

Either way he will be gone before Christmas I reckon.

billyg?

Good call for manager. One of our own.

At least this time, he wouldn't be calling for his own head to roll from day 1 in the job.

Or would he....? unsure.png

Actually , I've only done that with one manager , Craig !

Thinking about it , that's wrong as well , 'cos when I heard he may become manager , I was already calling for is head. How right I was ! bye1.gif

I was obviously hoping he would be sacked today at some point. My thinking now is that he will be given until next weekend as we will probably get beat regardless who's in charge. That means we can bring in a new manager that will give the team a well needed lift in time for the Motherwell game.

Probably wishful thinking right enough!!

What about a lack of money?

I guess the BoD need to weigh up the following....

1. Do they believe we will stay up with Craig in charge.

2. If not, how much would it cost to get rid of him.

3. How much would relegation cost the club.

4. Would relegation affect their chances of selling the club.

Of course, we would all agree that punting Craig and replacing him with Jose Mourinho wouldn't guarantee us staying up, but it would certainly give us a better chance. I have said many times, no managerial change guarantees anything, but Sunderland sticking with Di Canio would have been wrong, and there are many other examples - Craig and St Mirren certainly come into this category now, IMHO.

I personally think the BoD must now be thinking Craig's stewardship will see us relegated. His managerial record is shocking, our results are shocking, our home record is shocking, our goals for column is shocking, our inability to keep ONE clean sheet is shocking, his signings haven't worked, his interviews are showing all the signs of a washed-up reign, he played a clearly unfit Thompson in a lone striker role, at home, third game in a week.

If you want to talk about finance - crowds are already dwindling and we're out both cups - Craig's stewardship is seeing the club lose money....

Can the BoD afford NOT to act?

Good points there.

The worrying thing for me is that the fans are precipitating a financial crisis here which could also see us relegated.

I'm not having a go at people - they are free to make their own decisions.

Fans should be aware of all the consequences though before they start punting "passion" and "love for the club" around.

Yes it might seem that dropping attendances will force the board to act but if they have no money then that clearly can't work.

Dropping attendances therefore will certainly leave us even worse off financially.

We may be stuck with Tommy but do fans seriously want us to be stuck with the same players as well?

If people simply no longer care then that's absolutely their right but I hope this nails all this "season ticket holder for 20 years" pish because ultimately fans boycotting games need to know that they will be complicit if relegation happens as a result of running out of cash for new players.

This isn't a simple situation.

It might also be worth asking the following question:

If the board have no money to plug the shortfalls each game, are we risking administration in our attempts to get Tommy out and is it worth the risk?

If it is the season ticket holders, like myself, that are staying away the funds are already in the pot. \\i for one decided not to go to the Saintees game, not only because I am protesting but also because I'm fed up watching the p!sh that's been coloured as football from my team. IF the board don't act to rid us of this dud then it is as if it is they that have decided to kill our club.

In the words of Samuel L Jackson, if we do lose our club that'll be some cold motherf**king comfort my friend.

Some cold motherf**king comfort.

i would imagine that relegation will cost a lot more than binning tommy. Getting rid of tommy, signing another dud and getting relegated would be pretty disastrous. Can Gilmour et al be trusted to make the right decision? Regardless, I'd fancy my chances of getting better results than that old duffer, so how much worst could it beunsure.png

Aye , I would vote for you as manager . .

I only know that you are a Saint Mirren fan and therefore you are likely to get better results than him. .

A bit of passion might be enough to clinch it . .wink.png
