Anyone But Hopkin

Bit of an update on where we are with potential manager, and players.

the reason Neilson, Goodwin, Hopkin and seemingly Lambert (yes the coversation took place) have all shyed away from the job is because of the expectations expressed by the board to be Top Six next season (presumably with cheap termination option in contract if not achieved).

now you may feel its only right and proper to have a 'Stretch' target to aim for? However what the board are insisting the new man signs up to is to displace either Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs or Killie..! And the board expects the new man to do that by being ahead of Motherwell, St Johnstone, Dundee, Livi And Hamilton. All to be achieved with the second lowest budget in the league!!!

add to that at present we dont have a team, we have signed(with the greatest respect) an english non league bloke who is an unknown quantity, and Paul McGinn who lets say hasnt set the heather ablaze with news of his signing.

Halkett, and O'Ware, along with Holt  are/were poised to sign, but then Ross went, and they are considering their options, as the new guy might not fancy them? If the board go ahead and can get them, what is the new guy going to think his role actually is?

Reilly, as you know hadnt signed up, he is looking to his families future and Barnet (non league again).. ffs are keen on offering him £5k A Week! To help get them back in the league.

as if things couldnt get crazier the club have been picking Ross's brain this week regarding who to approach next as panic stations have set in. And all this with the additional belief of more than one board member that we could do a Leicester next season!!!

shit they must have been one lucky board when Ross's appointment panned out so well, that luck seems along way off today!

edit: i am sure its been talked about elsewhere, Ross wants Morgan on a year loan, but he will have to have SAFC flying before end of August before Rodgers will sanction it (he doesnt want him going to kick around the bottom of that league)  and of course it will depend on Morgan cracking, or not the first team squad at Shellic.

Now Neilson has officially pulled out of the running (as this poster told you) time to look at who is still in the frame, and who we fancy.

as we know it Kearney, McIntyre, McCoist, Caldwell, Stubbs and Possibly Guti are due to be interviewed with a curve ball name Larsson perhaps a goer or a bluff?

For me Caldwell and Stubbs offer little, i fear if either of those two were picked we would be subjected to watching them and the team die a 1000 slow lingering deaths. McIntyre is a decent shout, Kearney could be a diamond in the rough?

I, along with I would imagine, a number of fans would have deep reservations about bringing Aunt Sally. However imagine the seethe if it was him, and we could inflict a defeat on either Sevco, or their green bigot mates, or indeed both!

if he comes with McDowall thats a very decent prospect. The one that has me thinking the most is Guti... probably like me most think theres no chance, but if the guy is genuine? Along with being a football legend, a proven coach of youth and prepared to walk away from a very comy billet at Real Madrid, to take wind swept, pissing it down multiple training sessions at Ralston, then I would have him in a hearbeat!

he is displaying a real hunger to come here, on a lot less money, with a much smaller backroom team, and prepared to put himself front & centre in a totally different football landscape! I like that, even if its for one good season (make sure his compo clause is f**king astronomical) i would say "It's All Guti"....

Dont understand all the fawning over McIntyre. 

He was terrible at County and was bailed out umpteen times by Uncle Roy.

All about opinions!

uncle Roy has indicated more than once he regrets canning McIntyre & Dodds when he did.  They were County's best chance of staying up, and won them a trophy... yes County won a real cup!

Anyone else get the feeling the selection/interview process has been drawn out a day or two longer than need be to accomodate Hopkin coming back from his Holi-Bobs..?

T.I.S. This Is St Mirren.... from the excitement of multiple champions league winning candidates, to the slowly deflating ballon reality that the next guy will be cheap, and not outshine the board.

prove me wrong lets get the FGF 'Feel Guti Factor' back around the club.

This....

how very small minded, depressing and underwhelming T.I.S. i expect we will now hire someone who's been sacked for being pish elsewhere, because their cheap and can start Monday!

the funniest/stupidest comments on Scott's sky sports interview are the one suggesting "it wouldnt be practical for a Guti or Kluivert to uproot their family to come to Paisley" aye suppose, but i did think these guys were used to pitching up almost anywhere in the world to do their job, and their families have been used to it for years. Sounds more like "we're no paying for their digs"

and the second absolute peach.... "aye it might be great for the support, scottish football and St mirren, but its unlikely " so something/someone that might be all those things to all those people is apparently a bad thing? Is Trump writing his media statements now?
