I might be in the minority here but if Goody goes I don’t want Jack back it was a great ride when he was here and the connection with the fans was second to none. However he left and moved in as we now have it never works when a manager comes back and I’m not convinced he wouldn’t be using it as a stepping stone just to put his name about again im not sure yet who I would like to see take over but for me just no.

If he was able to keep up our present progress so be it.  We have always been a stepping stone for players and mangers, no change there.

What's wrong with that? Would you rather we got someone shite that we would have to sack?

Even if he was working 24 hrs a day to plot Livi s downfall you would expect us to lose....how is 2022 going for you ?

As I say it’s just my own personal opinion had his turn and it never works out when managers come back       I never said get someone that is shite when a club brings in a manager nobody knows how it will turn out. If he came back who is to say it would not turn out shite with Jack

What would the alternative be then? Do you expect managers to come here, exceed expectations and not leave us? Lock them in at Ralston?

IMO Jack Ross would be the best option available to us at the moment if Goodwin leaves and I would happily see him use us as a stepping stone if it meant him doing another good job. 
 

eta: I don’t think JR would even be interested in coming back FWIW. Best case scenario all round for me is if Goodwin stays.

I suppose what we can hope for is that the others that are shortlisted give better interviews than JG. Alternatively I'm sure Mrs Goodwin may convince him for now a quite frankly a stable job far better that going to another club who want success yesterday, more than likely won't be given enough time to turn it round and end up sacked within 12 months.

 

On the subject of Jack Ross, when he left us to go to Sunderland, they offered him a contract 5x what he was offered with us. No brainer at the time. Imo Aberdeen very much another Sunderland, willing to throw silly money about in hope that it works. I shudder to think what ramirez and brown are creaming off them wage wise amongst others.

Decent points. But..if the offer is there and the money is right then I for one won’t blame him for taking it. Aberdeen have up to 18000 or 20000 at home games and have a larger corporate income I would guess although both have been affected recently I would think.

As far as an incoming manager is concerned , should we need one then, Ross or MacKay would fit the bill. Mackay would have the “unfortunate” side effect of knocking Ross County’s bid to break free from the relegation zone.

I agree whole heartedly.

 

Jack Ross left us in the lurch at the earliest whiff of money.  Should James Goodwin depart then Jack Ross would be foolish appointment indeed.

 

Jim is a better human being though, Jim might stay, if he does not then we cross the bridge when we come to it.

More important financially (and a major distraction to a manager and team trying to focus), is that this is a squad attempting to move house/stadium.

no matter how hard you may try, there are always distractions at such a time.

and JG moving his family’s house up there at the same time will be added distraction…. Or he could just slog up and down the motorways or depart for weeks up to a drab hotel.

 

JG strikes me as more sensible than that.

 

unless his wife WANTS to head up there for the sunshine…?  :unsure:
