Welcome Oran Kearney

Quite amusing that a lot of the same people who are saying Kearney should get time were asking for Stubbs to be fired after four games emoji38.png

Of course Kearney will get to Christmas. We could be adrift at the bottom of the league by then and it won’t be all his doing. He’s surely got a free run till January, well under a normal chairman he would anyway.

It’s a tough gig for him. He’s coming into a league he has no working knowledge of, working with players he won’t know much about at a level of football he’s never even played in. And he won’t be able to sign anyone either.

Of course he might succeed, and I hope he does. But I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say that the chances of this appointment working out are fairly unlikely.

Good post Sir. 

Unfortunately, others will make up what they think you're saying. 

And abuse you.

I didn't want Stubbs sacked after 4 games but he was , and I'm more than happy with this appointment.

I really don't get this idea that , if you've not worked in Scotland before your going to be a failure. I could list quite a few managers with no previous experience of the Scottish game that went on to do ok.

I would like to know how you end up with 101%   :P

Add up the 3 totals  62 + 21 + 18 = 101  BUT I suspect you know that..

If you are asking how can the percentages permit this - I suspect it is rounding up - so 62 might be 61.5 etc.

Or it is just Irish Arithmetic

61.6 + 20.6 + 17.8 works perfectly.

I know. It was abysmal. I would delete it, but Andy has already quoted it, so that would be even more humiliating.

I might find a small cave somewhere and become a hermit:ph34r:

Yes, you are getting a bit crabby.

Does he have any coaching badges ?

I think he has one with a Routemaster on it, does that count?

Indeed.

This forum reeks of hypocrisy and irony.

 

Not really. Kearney will need to work with the tools Stubbs supplied and try to fix things. Stubbs clearly brought the hammer to the club and smashed the dream to pieces.

He could just use the knives that half this forum used on the last manager the minute he arrived?

 

That might be true, but we are where we are now. 

Every manager appointment is going to wrongly piss some people off.

By telling 2 injury prone players, who have been injured all season and a player JR relegated to the bench, that they can go?

Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t want Stubbs appointed, I’m glad he’s gone and I did t like his signings.

But this repeated line that he ripped up JR’s team just isn’t true.

Welcome aboard etc. Hope he’s a success, if he’s not we are certainly going down.

 

Looking at his CV I can clearly see why the BOD thought Stubbs was a stronger candidate a few weeks ago.

 

In terms of gambles, this has to be the biggest gamble of an appointment we’ve ever made. This is a guy who’s never worked in Scottish or an equivalent level football before, as a player or as a coach. This is the equivalent of appointing a manager from the junior leagues.

 

Someone like Goodwin or even Thompson would have been far less of a gamble. They also have no full time managerial experience , but at least they know the league and the club.

 

Oh well, long shots sometimes come off.

 

Kearney is going to be stuck with another means team for the next 4 months. So even if he doesn’t improve performances he can’t really be blamed.

 

I guess we can start blaming him if we are still in the bottom 2 come Feb time. If we are I guess he will be for the bullet too. Then we will have another manager working with a group of players he didn’t sign emoji38.png

 

 

 

You wanted Ross out at the start and now you are ringing bells again so that means it should work great. if we go down we go down OK will still be manager this is a long term project.

So you have actually spoken to OK and he told you this personally - top work LPM.

No, but he is well known for not suffering fools gladly. If they dont shape up for him, he'll ship them out. What are you worried about? Ross got rid if ten. His first few months. I expect this guy has a few names on his list already, and none of them are Pike..!

There are now 4 Northern Ireland managers in the premiership that speaks volumes.

If the players start whining about not liking where they are being played, or what formation, this guy will tear them a new one! Expect to see a few swift drops from team.

Or a manager getting to know his team rather than treating them as expendable subbordinates, explaining decisions and getting the club's assets playing for him?

Like i said above what are you panicking about? Ross kicked ten duds as he saw them out as soon as he could, Oran might top that?

Yesterday I was teamed up with Brian Rice at the golf day, and the bloke was top class. He could have hid, phoned in sick, blanked the golf day, but he didn’t. A really friendly guy, who is in the middle of something approaching a shit-storm at his place of employment. It’s easy to forget that these guys, and the players, are human beings. Which brings me onto the human aspect of this appointment. The bloke has family, a successful coaching role and a job outside football. Are St Mirren taking a gamble on Kearney? Of course we are, but so is Kearney. He’s now looking not only at coming straight into what is a pressured job, under a fair bit of scrutiny from all sides, but away from home, family, friends, and he will have a shitload of personal stuff to think about - housing, schooling, his affairs, never mind his new job.

It’s a cliche ‘give the manager time’, but he really does need it, and I hope he is afforded it, it all works out, and hopefully Brian Rice can work alongside him.

Welcome to St Mirren, and best wishes.

That's the front page of the Scottish Sun headline written for them "Oran Just Wanted Mhor and Mhor" said Bewitched!

Shit, I going to have to agree with you.

Apparently if you cross this guy, you're out the door.

Anyone can tell anyone they aren't needed. That's the easy part.

We had people on the forum giving it all "he doesn't suffer fools gladly/has high standards" stuff when Stubbs was decimating last season's squad. 

The judge of a manager is the quality of players who they bring in. Let's hold off the praise this time every time OK tells someone to GTF.

Luxembourg have one Team in the Group stages.

Ulster has one

Eire has one

We have none.

 

So after all the nasty stuff you say about Sectarianism  and Bigotry

 

You park at the door of Northern Ireland and Eire, which last time I checked are North and South Ireland, you are also saying that all the probs that the OF bring are Irish problems based in Ireland .... What a pathetic racist statement

 

Now I know you are thick as feck, you wont actually get what an utter fanny you make of yourself, and you cant remember what you actually print on here because you post so much shite, but your own words make you out for what I took exception to. Your a racist scared wee fanny, hiding under a handle name spouting racist hatred...... You would truly thrive on a Rangers Forum, cause that's all they do.................

Called for you to booted off here, but as a lot have you on ignore anyway most don't see the shite you print................

Any way your back on ignore , I look forward to welcoming our new Irish Manager and I am sure so quality Irish players, you can just spout you hatred on here, until the Mods have enough and boot you off........................

Your The worst Troll on here....................... St Mirren have an Irish manager so GIRUY racist ........................
