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.

Sunderland on paper was an amazing opportunity. A club in the lower leagues with an EPL fanbase & big budget that could treble (at least) his wages. It’s highly unlikely any other St Mirren manager over the decades (including Jim Goodwin) would have turned that down. 
 

I get fans being hurt by this sort of thing but we should be applying some realism to managers of St Mirren.
 

Goodwin obviously has at least some interest in the Aberdeen role which isn’t nearly as big a job as Sunderland. If he does go, I don’t see why people wouldn’t take Ross back. We aren’t likely to hire someone else that if he does well, won’t have his head turned by bigger opportunities.

Just wish we had the balls to tell these teams to f**k off .we will never grow if we keep bending over.

Legally we have no choice if there is a release clause in the contract and the fee has been met.

The Dons fans I’ve spoken to would prefer Jim, but they also like to wind me up about Saints. 

Have they got much ammo for that at the moment? We've beaten them twice, are above them in the league, they're out both cups and they've won two trophies in 30 years. I hope you're giving it to them f**king tight!

Going by the amount of effort and airtime people on here are giving this, it's obvious to me that Aberdeen's misdirection and mischief making is working. The players are probably just as distracted by all this nonsense. We have, IMO, two season defining games coming up which may give us a good springboard to go for the heady heights of top four. I hope this is all concluded today and that I am proven right. Then, when Jim realizes he's been played as a patsy, he gees up the troops to push for that dream.

 

ETA:

This quote from the Daily Ranger sums it up:

"Former Buddies boss Jack Ross has also held talks about taking over at Pittodrie, with a number of other candidates under consideration too".

I am more concerned what the impact will be on the players out of contract at the end of the season. How many would follow Goody if he leaves to Aberdeen

Are many out of contract? Off the top of my head it's just Alnwick who will be away regardless of who the manager is. and Tanser, who has an option of another year. The three loanees will be away regardless of who the manager is too.

Yeah I’m a bit underwhelmed by that signing too. 
JG seems to see potential there. He certainly rates the lad. Can't say I see what the gaffer sees, but I support him all the way. His call.

Mind you... If he ties the player to Saints then leaves, I will be less than chuffed.

Why do we need another full back. This just signed new contract as did Fraser last year. So Tanser can't be staying as he only signed a year contract.

Ps is killie oor wee team now. Like we are to hibs under Ross.

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.
 
 
 
 
 

Aberdeen barely get 9-10 thousand at games not 20000!!

Was waters not a Ross signing can't remember when he was here.

Nah it was goodwin. Loaned to us in aug 2019. Jim took the reigns end of June 2019. Looks like he is off so wonder who made this decision. Jim to weaken us, someone else within the club or the next manager ready to step in or the kibble.
