St Mirren give Barnsley permission to speak to JR

Recommended Posts

Lots of chat regarding this on Sportsound.

Chick Young confirmed no contact with St Mirren (spoke with Fitzy in the past couple of hours) but did his usual "I understand..." and says he expects Jack to speak to Barnsley in the next few days.

Allan Preston was bigging up Barnsley's innovative, new owners and reckoned that if JR speaks to them and sees the infrastructure then he'll want to go.

Alex Rae also involved in the discussion! :lol:

Sky reporting that JR is to have talks with Barnsley. There's a whole lot of bollocks being talked by a whole lot of people , if it's not true !

Indeed . I find it a bit bizarre . Whilst I know Jack is a great manager , there must be other guys with a proven track record at a higher level  that they would consider. .

Jack Ross is not the guy they need. They need a guy with experience of relegation battles. There's a guy managing up at Hampden that has never been relegated as a manager they need him.

Yeah we weren't involved in a relegation battle at all last season. It was all just a dream. :whistle

Have thought for a long time that Jack Ross will bypass Scottish football in his next move. Not sure Barnsley is the right move for him though. Even if they went down to League One, its still a higher standard than Scottish Premiership bar Celtic. If the money is right and the investment in the club is right then he may go. Think he'll want to finish the job at St Mirren though.

If you’re talking about MacPherson then he was QoS manager when they finished bottom and were relegated from the First Division in 2011-12.

Their last 2 managers have been quality, young, up and coming managers and its worked for them. If Ross goes there its a big potential stepping stone for him

This is just a pre-curser for the Summer

Jack Ross won't be St Mirren manager next season. Would be very very suprised if thats the case.

At least we'll get some good money when he takes Magennis !

With English football just agreeing an new Tv contract worth £4.4 billion for 3 seasons, they can afford to offer good wages to bigger names than Ross ( respectively ) factor in the new billionaire owners & I believe the job will go to a well known manager

So why speak to Ross then ?

Yep, good point

Though getting to your point, perhaps if they do make an approach it’ll be because they might fancy an up and coming manager trying to make a name for himself.

Experience with ‘proven’ managers doesn’t always yield results.

Interesting 48 hours ahead?

I agree. Other Scottish manager doing a brilliant job in England is Derek Adams at Plymouth. Time will tell
