Is this actually genuine re Broonie? If so it’s a total embarrassment. Coach, assistant at a very big push, but potential manager is a complete joke.
Can you imagine trying to convince the Saints faithful to get on board with it? I’ve been resigned and a bit down about losing Goodwin today, now I’m just getting pissed off with it all. The thought of approaching Scott Brown as his replacement is too much to stomach. 

Already been interviewed I believe.  Utter farce.

Scott Brown - I would start to panic now.

Is JG in on it Or what... that would get rid of 2 of his problems...

He's past it at this level and has NO management experience.... hard to believe our board would be that daft

Sounds like another WHOOSH

I can not bring myself to believe this is even remotely true .the fans need to let those who are supposed to be in charge know this is not on.

Only thing I can think is that the board have been upset by the upheaval that Aberdeen have caused us and are trying to muck them about a bit. Brown surely can’t be a serious consideration. Whatever is going on, it’s an real amateur look from the club, if true.

Scott Brown wouldn't bother me. Could turn out to be a decent punt.

A player that loves winning and hates losing, that has won everything in Scotland for years. Scotland International. 

I'd be very surprised if Jim Goodwin knows how to set up a team better than he would.

As opposed to a player that loves losing and hate winning? Part of the Aberdeen coaching staff this season. How’s that gone so far?

Not for me munoz. There are players that you know are smart and will go into coaching. Can you really see this guy being a good example to our young players, working well with the academy,  identifying transfer targets and selling St Mirren to experienced players?  I doubt very much if he could set up a team as well as Goodwin or any experienced manager. Brown would be a disaster. If we were going up the player coach route I would go with Shaugnessy but I don't think that player coach is the way we should go .

Goody's first match at Pittodrie ?

As the Dons celebrate another dude who left us for them.

Only Six Quid for the Programme.

Will probably still be a sellout edition.

Maybe he will won’t be the main act 😙 a certain manager with lots of SPL experience is unemployed at the moment

Get brown so far to f**k. 

If the club think this is a good idea they don’t have much ability to temperature check the fans. 
 

Smacks of another Misty-eyed appointment from those on our board who like the green & white. Same mistake as Stubbs. 
 

Hopefully this doesn’t come to fruition.

There hasn’t been much evidence of this so far (ST fiasco, Kibble fiasco) so going for Brown fits into the recent MO of the club.

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. 

Your reply is somewhat short on detail.

 

You appear to mis-remember the shitty events that lead Jack Ross to clamour for the first big pay packet waved at him.  You seem not to recall or have neglected to reference Jack attending the interview with Ipswich before hot tailing to the now Tory controlled land of the largely unemployed that is Sunderland.  His hasty appointment as boss of the English low league outfit was so hasty that I recall very clearly our board of directors not given given the common courtesy of a "heids up" from greedy Jack the utter back stabbing arsehole.  Also it is fair to say that the arsehole has not achieved much since dumping us in the shit has he?  It is a shit manager who cannot achieve mediocrity with the resources available at Hibs.  Remember the theft of our captain and the plundering of a number of other players from our club?  With all that he made a c**t of it.....yes lets have him back, f**king bra f**king vo (slow hand clap to emphasise the stupidity of the Jack Ross arse lickers).

 

Jack Ross is an arsehole.  People who vote Tory are arseholes and people who are unable to remember being taken for a c**t are destined to be life's victims.

 

So to sum up, Jack Ross can f**k off.

I'm getting the impression you don't want Ross back Tom, am I reading you right

You can say it’s short on detail but for me the most important detail is this. Practically any St Mirren manager when waved a carrot such as the Sunderland (or Ipswich for that matter) job, is very likely to take it.

Try applying the logic to yourself, if you managed a promoted Scottish championship side (that you didn’t necessarily support) and was offered a role from an English club with EPL history & aspirations that could in theory financially secure your family in 3-5 seasons, would you not be tempted? 
 

As for not achieving much. Yes he struggled at Sunderland but so has every manager since & a few before. Poison chalice as they say. He got Hibs their first 3rd place finish in over a decade & to two cup finals. He lost his job on a poor run not dissimilar to what Goodwin had earlier this season, I personally think it was very harsh.
 

The signing St Mirren players. He has a duty of care at any club he manages to sign the players he think will do the job. In the past St Mirren have signed players from clubs previously managed by our at the time gaffers. It’s part of football.
 

When names like Scott Brown are being mentioned it really hits home for me just how much worse or more risky the next manger could be than Jack Ross.
