Next St Mirren Manager

Recommended Posts


Calderwood went to Holland but must have fallen out with the directors as he left around a couple of months.

Whenever I have heard him speak he has always been keen to get back in to Scottish football, I remember him claiming people in Holland were amazed he could not get a club in Scotland.

Maybe his image works against him, Scottish football is odd like that, results dont seem to come first. Tom Hendrie is another guy I'm amazed never got another chance with a decent sized club.

No offence to Teale or Thommo but it has to be a fresh face for me - someone who isn't friends with the players and picks players on merit to suit the gameplan. An experienced manager until the end of the season with T or T as an assistant. If we do well he gets the gig. If we go down then consider the assistant.

My problem with Calderwood is that he allegedly bullied a young player suffering from depression. Times have changed and I do not want a bully as a manager.

He was on Radio Scotland moaning about how the club had sold their best striker in the window, the chairman obviously got wind of his complaining and sacked him.

We could do worse than Calderwood. As people have said, he has a history of getting teams safe. That's all we need right now.

In our current state, we need an experienced man who can keep us up. Calderwood fits the bill, even if it's to the end of the season and it doesn't work out. If we do go down then we look at the situation and say thanks for your efforts Jimmy and move on.

Would any new manager be allowed to bring in a centre half or two... if not, it doesn't matter who

gets the job we'll be going down..

we wont bring in any new centre half, the current one will remain until the consortiums shares are sold - why else would he still be there, he is the worst centre half in the league and was rejected by queen of the south as being no good for the second division, clear out needed

Like I said earlier he was a big spender at a time when most clubs were acting like Shirley Bassey wannabees, he did good work with Killie and Ross County without breaking the bank..............

maybe I'm being a bit harsh on him as his record speaks for its self. Thommo is my first choice.

Can't see Thommo getting it mate, you can't party hard with the squad and then boss them IMO.

I know someone who has a history of getting teams safe on one of the smallest budgets

in the league..... We showed him the door...

The Chairman reckoned we would be pushing for the top 6 this year,laugh.png

I'll say it first, oops I mean second, BRING BACK DANNY...whistling.gif

Managers who have expressed an interest: Billy Stark, Jamie Fullarton, Barry Smith, Gary Teale and Stevie Thompson Only Billy Stark out of that list would be an ideal candidate.

is jamie fullarton a manager now?

if they are men and proper competitors then they take it on the chin as valid comment from an experienced and respected senior pro and kick on to prove him wrong

or they are smoked out as not (yet) good enough

A fair point, hopefully Thommo has the measure of them in the sense that they will respond appropriately...all will have 1 year contracts so high risk strategy otherwise.

Calderwood kept both Kilmarnock and Ross County up when they were heading for the drop. And this is without the supposed "massive budget" he had at Aberdeen and Dunfermline.

I don't see any better candidate for trying to keep us in the league.

When your team is shit,, and in the relegation bit,, who you gonna call,, Jimmy Caldy.lol.gif

FFS, if he's that good why has he only managed for 2 months out of the last 3 and a half years...

Can't remember his name being touted much when Danny was punted in the summer, now he's

being seen as some sort of saviour.... He wouldn't be my choice..
