As if it needed confirming, our board are a bunch of rank amateur shit stirrers. Jeez they cant even get shit stirring right. What an embarrassment that sorry lot are. Good on Coleraine for calling the shit stirrers on it! Maybe they'll lodge an official complaint over Scott's slanderous allegations?l

COLERAINE FC have today read with disappointment the comments from St Mirren regarding the recent appointment of Oran Kearney as our Manager…

We wish to set the record straight that Coleraine FC has at all times conducted itself in a professional manner, in accordance the rules and regulations of the IFA, and had no contact with Oran regarding the vacancy at the club until it was confirmed he had parted company from St Mirren.

We had interviewed a number of candidates for the position and had been refused permission to speak to another candidate whom we had identified as potentially our new manager.

Furthermore, the last minute cancellation of the friendly with St Mirren was a major disappointment to not only Bannsiders, but also to a number of St Mirren fans whom made the journey none the less to the North Coast.

We look forward with confidence to the start of the Danske Bank Premiership season under the management of Oran.

Did we really expect Coleraine to come out and say "We spoke with Oran 6 weeks before he was appointed and kept the job open for him"

They're hardly going to drop themselves in the shit.

It's a bit of blame on both sides i'd imagine but they definitely sounded him out, although neither OK or Coleraine will ever admit this... better for all concerned to move on.

I guess u can make those guesses gents. However only one chairman has stated he had a replacement lined up in advance!

this makes our club look very, very poor. We a run by a bunch of amateur s on an ego trip! Save for the legend that is Tony Fitzpatrick.

And no need to be so harsh on yourself with your last sentence! emoji23.png

 

In which particular year of primary school did you craft this rapier like banter. 

And you’ve clearly crafted it so well you like to use it as your stock comeback to every single derogatory remark made at you (of which there are many). You’re probably gutted you couldn’t shoehorn in the old mirror “gag” as well. 

What a monumental loser. 🤣

At no time did Scott say he had a replacement "lined up". He said they were prepared. This could quite simply be a shortlist of candidates, or even just one candidate. It doesn't mean they had talked to anyone. In fact it is much the same as Coleraine sending the message via newspapers to say, "Come back Oran, all is forgiven SIX weeks before. 

You really are coming across as a very bitter individual grasping at any straw. I don't necessarily accept what Scott says at face value but I certainly read what Coleraine were saying and there is no doubt in my mind they were telling OK he was welcome. How is that not tapping up an employee of another club?

Here we go again! There is certainly one person who makes our club look poor by association. I leave it to you to work out who that is!

Unfortunately the "ignore" function only works if others stop quoting him. 😒

Sorry bud but the chairman clearly said they had "done their due dilligence" which you can only do with the agreement of the other party. You read it as you wish, all i know is Coleraine, twice, yes twice allowed us to interview, then sign their manager. They were nothing but professional in all this, in fact at the rime they insisted St Mirren had gone about their business in the right way. How do we handle his departure??? With a clusterf**k of a shitstorm!

our chairman decides to dispense with Oran's services, but instead of wishing him well and leaving it there, he comes across as a very bitter ex, who seems to be intent on hounding his ex even though they've found love elsewhere.

Can't blame Coleraine at all for setting the record straight. 

Gordon should stay out of the press and away from his statement generator for a while.

It gives me no pleasure to find myself in agreement with LPM in the belief that the management of the club is becoming embarrassing.

Absolute nonsense. Due diligence can be one sided. It just means they've looked at who MIGHT be the person to go for. Do you really think so little of Goodwin as to think he would be sneaking behind a manager's back waiting to jump on board? And you are still making the assumption that OK's leaving was totally one sided because it fits your little vendetta. The last statement really proves you are still  a sad and bitter individual.

I also noted that you ignored the actual FACT that Coleraine published an open letter to OK basically telling him he had a job.

What i'll say is, i hope we have Jim Goodwin on a watertight contract which has a performance related clause in it. I doubt we have the finances to have to pay compensation to a failed manager and also have enough to pay good players,if he does fail that is.

Washing your dirty linen in public is not a good thing. We have rightly got rid of managers who were not up to the job and in the case of Ross one who wanted to go to better himself, losing a manager who helped turn our season round was not good, and it seems a mixture of blame can land in both camps here, Kearney seemingly having left his options open to return to his previous job and football career and deciding to do just that by way of asking for more frequent travel home which he likely knew we could never allow and us having such a piss poor contract with him that allowed such negotiations to start.

It seems the guys having a go at Gordon Scott for his interview, we're previously having a go at him for saying nothing.

I did notice that, they ask for an explanation and then moan when they get one, i do think he could have done better with his statement though.

I still don't think the interview with Scott was the whole truth. I think we will never know how much of it was but I'm not going to hang all the blame on him while painting the Coleraine chairman whiter than white. I think he too pulled a few strokes.

You got a copy of that letter?
