Ipswich Town - Permission to Speak with Jack Ross

Recommended Posts

I'm failing to see the love for Jim Goodwin as a manager so far. He's hardly set the Earth on fire at Alloa in the time he's been there. Yes they could still go up via the playoffs but so did Brechin last year after a slightly better than mediocre season.

I'm not saying he's not a good manager and won't go on to have a good career and it does feel slightly hypocritical given Jack came from Alloa but I'd like us to try something different with our next manager choice. We struck exceptionally lucky and picked very well with Jack who was the standout in the lower leagues at that point. There's no-one in League 1 or 2 right now who strikes me as a real opportunity missed if we don't go for them.

Our forum guru HarryFromBath has now done one of his famous 'Notes' on St Mirren and Jack Ross by delving through your forum. He does this before every game, compiling opinions on managers/players/us from opposition forums. Always well worth a read, very balanced and informative. You might even recognise one of your posts... 

What do you reckon? Fair assessment?

I'm disappointed that none of Lookatme's posts made it into the article.:whistle

It is a pretty fair assessment.

Think you're barking up the wrong tree with Jack. He's hopeless and only inherited a fantastic squad from Tommy Craig, Ian Murray and Alex Rae. 

Any one of those three are the sort of forward thinking mavericks you as a club should be going for. Not hopeless Jack.

To be honest mate, I'm torn. Burley's thrown his name in there and I'd love to see him manage us again. Clearly loves the club, gave me some of my best Town memories and speaks so passionately about the job. Only prospective name that's got my heart racing... until now- JR sounds right up our street. It has to be said that our owner's two top 'advisors' are fecking 'Arry and David Pleat... god help us.

Robbie Neilson I could live with but any of McCall, Hopkin not for me.
It's too soon for Jim in my opinion.
I wasn't being choirmaster for Goodwin and agree it's probably too early for him yet. When you've got Tommy Craig as your manager you'll happily take anyone to replace him and we did, likewise if you have Ian Murray or Alex rae as your manager you'll take absolutely anybody to replace them and we did, our problem with recruitment now is the elevated position jack has taken us to. In order to replace him we are trying to recruit someone to take us to top 6. Obviously Jack hasn't taken us there yet but he has instilled that hope in us (again obviously remembering that it's the hope that kills you) Robbie Neilson isn't a terrible shout but I really can't think of anyone who I'd be happy with if Jack left whereas in previous appointments I can't think of many that I wouldn't have been happy with. I suppose we've been spoiled recently. Having said that I saw my first game in 1965 so I suppose I've seen it all before though nobody gets time to build a team anymore either you sacked in a year or off to a better team, but I sound like TT now indeed like TT

I'm feeling a little discombobulated what with all the reasonable, considered, and pragmatic posts on this thread.

Come on, what have you done with the real B&WA members, Div?:huh:

Rank rotten.

His team is...

Defensive shambles.

Missing midfield.

And strikers..don't mention strikers. 

Hasn't a clue.

Relies on the kit man for tactics.

(Is that OK EK)

We've got previous with David Pleat when he was trying to sign Frank McAvennie.

Luton picked up the bill to send a St.Mirren entourage down south with McAvennie, only for him to sign for West Ham instead during the trip.  :lol:

Hopefully Pleat still holds a grudge and will look elsewhere.

It was Lyall who first made him a Hammer when McAvennie was actually supposed to be signing for David Pleat at Luton Town. Lyall met him after the clock had struck midnight at a service station which was closed and in pitch darkness. And picking up the bill were, yes, Luton!

"I'd become St Mirren's top scorer from midfield and clubs started taking notice," McAvennie said. "David Pleat got hold of our phone number and was always talking to mam and dad. Eventually a deal was done between Luton and my club but not with me.

"I had to fly to London to meet David - we were on first name terms by now - but when he introduced me to his chairman, a Tory MP, he clipped me on the back of the head and said `welcome'. I didn't like that and wouldn't sign.

"I was then told by St Mirren they had also agreed terms with West Ham. They had conveniently forgotten to mention that. There were six of us down from Paisley including directors and we were staying in a hotel at Luton's expense but a phone call went in to Lyall informing him of the situation.

"He met us all at Toddington Services at quarter to one in the morning. They were closed, of course - God knows what we all looked like skulking around in the dark. Lyall said he'd give me 10 grand signing-on fee but I was tired and a cheeky blighter and said unless I got #15,000 I was up the road home.

"John phoned all night and the next day flew up on the morning flight and signed me".

I see a couple of paragraphs about the 'lose and you're relegated 'game at Falkirk.

There was something in the air that day because we were bottom with two games left, with  a pretty pedestrian, defensive team, and then this happened. Safe by 4.45pm.

Fully understand Jack has to talk to interested clubs but it is getting very frustrating not only for fans players also it's a huge distraction.  If a , BIG IF Jack stays he should say I'm staying one season guaranteed the club should back that up also with a whole season also.
