Jack Ross Must Go.

Recommended Posts


Football being football , even if we had won today , I don't think that would have had a particular bearing on the league games still to come. If we had won the Cup I personally would gladly have traded it for 3 points in the league or even 6 points but that would probably be pushing it. .a bit

Bit more context here. Following results today, no matter what happens, we will be bottom of the league on the 7th of April.

Even if we beat Ayr next week - which I think we will - we will still be bottom of the league with 6 games to go.

Those 6 games include these 4: Away to top, away to second top, away to third top and away to fourth top.

The run in from hell.

Well done you can count (4-3=1)

The run in from hell could also be the best days of the season as we are more than capable of winning all these games.

But going from your continual negative posts you will be in attendance, mobile phone in hand, waiting to inform the supporters unable to be there our impending doom.

And you could have simply said we are away to the top four!!

We lost to a team that are in freefall, we have little or no chance of anything but a play off place, woo hop.

 

FS, I don't understand this attitude.

 

Would you have given the boys credit if they'd won yesterday or simply said it isn't matter as Utd were on a bad run? They are a decent side with a number of players too good for this level and yesterday's game was a cracking, open, cup final where we didn't carry the rub of the green we've had in previous weeks. Great chances went begging and a couple of decisions didn't go our way but that's how it goes.

 

Ayr winning makes the gap 4 points, sure, but it also makes it a definite 3 horse race as Dumbarton are also only 4 points ahead and have played a game more. Raith, despite picking up 4 points in their last two games, aren't out of it yet either and we have to play them all at home, where our form has improved dramatically.

 

Then we have our run in "from hell" as described by someone else in another post. Well, even if you believe that the others at the bottom will be playing each other during these games and somebody has to drop points.

 

Win our three homes games remaining and see what that brings us. Then we'll see what points need to be delivered from the others.

 

A couple of months ago we'd have bitten the hand off someone to have a crack at the playoff. That is very much within our grasp and we've played well over the last couple of months so why shouldn't we make it?

He's actually claiming that he knows what positions the current top four will be in when we play them - even though we could possibly play the 2nd top team 3 games in a row, or the 3rd top team. The way you put it is more likely to be accurate as I think it is more probable that the current top four will remain the top four than they will stay in their current positions within the top four (except Hibs, who will stay top).

I would have given credit had we won yesterday but it doesn't change the fact United, on recent form, are very poor. We played pretty decent in the first half and, yes, should have been in front but we were woeful in the second half, as were United so, overall, both teams were poor. I agree a few months ago we would have accepted the play off place and I think that's the best we can hope for. As you say let's see what happens.

Another glorious failure, JR left it too long to freshen things up, yesterday's performance/result doesn't improve my rating of him, still got the same opinion I had on P3 - ninth or bust!

Aye, I've also never been shouting for JR to go, especially at the time this thread appeared but it's reasonable for the people who run the club to assess his overall performance at the end if the season. None of this "playing well" subjective shit, points on the board are all that matters in our position. Playing like Barcelona can come later.

It's crazy people are still posting on this thread (let alone it being created on the 7th of January before he had a chance to replace the absoultely horrific signings that Rae made, that every single one of us were aware were far from good enough) Jack Ross has done a fantastic job since he's been here, at this level he's brought in some amazing players, got us to a cup final, a Quarter final and made us one of the the most in form teams in the league of 2017

The question is what subs would you of made yesterday? I think we played very well yesterday and struggle to see how subs would of added anything to the game. We go again next week, get behind Ross and the team, it's night and day to what we had first half of the season.

On the subs. Really thin bench yesterday with respect to midfield and front players. So not much scope where we needed it.

The cup tied rule has no logic at all and cut our options further. What is the point of it ?

QotS fielded three new players on Jan 7th and two of them made significant contributions that day, they didn't need a month to gel!

You say JR's done a fantastic job since he came here and then in the next sentence there's no-one on the bench who could've freshened up a wilting midfield - something doesn't add up. :unsure:

Finally it's not night and day in terms of league position - we're still 10th.

Wonder why Stelios has fallen quickly out of favour he can play in midfield as well as defence.

Try fresh legs that would of been a start, the players were running out of steam specially in that heat.

Although the result did not go our way I throughly enjpyed the game and the whole day.
Jack Ross is the special one come the end of the season the blind ones will see again. Miracles are real

That remains to be seen but hope you're right.

It's won't matter what happens between now and the end of the season, Jack Ross will be our manager next season. GLS has stated that.

A vote of confidence from the chairman, might as well close the thread then..............
