A lot of opinion and not a lot of fact.

The facts are he essentially rebuilt the team in Jan 2017 and kept us up, added another significant amount of players in the summer, followed by another handful of players in the winter to ensure we went up. All targets achieved.

For starts you have Paul McGinn - our POTY as only a decent signing.

I'd also argue 20 goals Gavin Reilly was pretty inspired and Ian McShane with some of the most assists in the league as pretty inspired also. Decent signings for that level.

Both Ross Stewarts as you say are now playing every week and doing well. 2 more good signings in hindsight no longer at club thanks to Mr Stubbs.

Stelios scored some important goals in his time. Where would we be without his double against Hibs in March 2017? Decent signing for that level.

We've yet to see the best of Mullen - he was signed as a project player. Done well in Championship without scoring a lot of goals. Was hardly given a run of games last year and still ended as our top scorer.

Your point about playing 5 games is bizarre - the like of Hilson and McCart were signed to fill gaps... as we know the likes of them came in and done a job when asked. That's the point in having a squad...

Let's not forget OK had Gus M holding his hand during the window to bring in the players you mentioned either. By your own rather bizarre judging process surely Lyons, Dreyer, Duck, Corbu, Musek, Holmes, Ferdinand and Lyness all fall into only the decent/poor/or strange 'less than 5 games' category? Not so impressive when you look at it without bias.

 

Alan Stubbs gave both Ross Stewarts about as much game time as Jack Ross did whilst being at he club for a shorter period of time. Jack Ross was the one who dropped Reilly after signing Mullen. Gareth Wardlaw once kept us in the premier league with about his only goal of the season... does he count as a good signing because it was an important goal?

McCart I think played 1 game, possibly two, as did Hill, as did Buchanan, as did Donati, almost half of Jack Ross' signings hardly played for him! Hippolyte signed for us after promotion to the premier league was almost certain... money well spent?

Maybe Jack should have signed Mullen on a 5 year deal so that we can get the best out of him in years 3, 4, and 5?

Jack this, OK that.  f**k off.  Neither are our manager now and neither is going to be anytime soon. The only thing we need to worry about is how Goody is doing. So far I'd give him a seven. Came in late, Inherited f**k all from OK and built a team that at least looks well organised and difficult to beat. Needs a bit of polish upfront. I'd say we are comparable to Ross Jack's first season team around the start of the transfer window. We had stopped losing every game and resembling the keystone cops, and with a few tweaks and signings,  began to find a goal threat. 

If we can start scoring goals, then I think we'll do alright.

Intellectual addition to the discussion.
