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.  

Oh Bazil, the mans a prick.  Don't dress it up, face it.

 

"try applying logic"  your being an arse.  Why?

 

Don't turn into an arsehole in order to defend a man who stabbed his chairman in the back at the earliest opportunity when he got a whiff on currency.  Behave yourself now.  

 

Oh and just tore-iterate, the mans a prick.  The man of course is Jack Ross, a pricks prick.

Lee Sharp also gone as well.

Guessing compensation must be closer to £400k then.

Was there not talk yesterday of Langfield going with them too? That would be more bad news. He’s done a great job with Alnwick and Hladky. Lyness has been brilliant cover too and Langfield looks like a good character to have around the place. 
Hopefully our Board and Tony can get the replacements right.

He is taking on the game today apparently, so must be staying.

I usually get more bothered about losing quality players than managers and coaching staff but I’m surprised at my annoyance about this.

Goodwin has steadied the ship this Season no question albeit it took him time to stop being so stubborn.

I’ve been a critic of him in the past as he can come across like he is some sort of tactical genius when he in fact is often the last person who sees what needs to be changed.

That said for him to go at a time where we really do seem to have found a formula that works, he legs it. Shit timing for the team and it’s concerning whether or not it disrupts our good run.

Aberdeen sacking Glass came at a bad time for us and I thought they would have gone for someone with more experience.

I guess we should be excited about who we can attract. Let’s hope our recent form and prospects attract decent quality leadership. 
Goodwin will always be held in high regard at the club for what he has achieved. 
Thankfully we still have more than decent coaches at the club who can  see us through until the next Fergie arrives. 
Marching In.

Ah well that's that then, I suppose overall he did a pretty good job of managing our club, luckily for him the people who's making the decision up in Aberdeen have very short memories the performances we were producing for months before Xmas was absolute chronic but to his credit he turned it around... 

Anyway no good lucks from me I hope he makes a total cnut of it.... Adios..

Be surprise if it as much as that considering he only signed till summer 2024 

Maybe it would have been better if the Dons had beaten us last month at home  :rolleyes:

Notice you didn’t answer my question though on if you’d have taken the job in those circumstances? 
 

How exactly is it different from Jim Goodwin today as well or should we just hire managers that will not leave for bigger opportunities & more money? Good luck finding them. 😂

Hi, my name is Matthew Muir and I am studying journalism at City of Glasgow College. 
 

I have published an article about potential candidates for the St. Mirren job, if any Buddies would be interested in reading. 
 

Thanks :)

Danny Lennon and Kevin Thompson are non starters in this race.

Don't think Danny Lennon nor Kevin Thomson would be in the frame.

Many fans believe Lennon underachieved with possibly the strongest squad we ever had. And since he left he has hardly set the heather on fire nor been considered for any other jobs above Clyde..

Kevin Thomson is inexperienced and has proven nothing yet. His team may be top of the League but has a budget greater than some Championship clubs.

The same could be considered against Scott Brown although for some weird reason this is gaining momentum. Nothing beats experience and Brown need two years at a lower level before being considered in my opinion.

I am surprised that the sheep have went for JG but they have so we move on. Now for the next chapter. Who's next? I don't know but I hope this rumour that's gathering pace about the animal Scott Brown getting a chance is well off the mark. He's a disruptive influence that I would never have wanted in our playing staff let alone dictating the character of the whole team.

I thank Jim for what he has done for the club and I’m very sad to see him go.

The one thing  don’t do is wish him well. Had he gone to England or somewhere else I would have. However, he has moved to one of our competitors so I hope he loses every single game and gets sacked before the start of next season.

Well done getting published. The article is titled 4 managerial candidates to replace jim, then comes up with 5 names, is that because 4 wouldn’t be popular and only one would?
