Thread: If Thompson Loves United Like He Says He Does

    If Thompson Loves United Like He Says He Does

    Then McKinnon will have his jotters on Monday morning.

    Get a real manager in and not the bargain basement dross we have endured for the past 2 years.

    No money to sack and pay compo to a club for their gaffer.

    Itíll be sack then a replacement not currently in work.

    We couldnít even temp St Mirrenís gaffer if we wanted to.

    And whoever comes in will only get backed on a one in one out basis.

    I wonder what he thought of that performance from the top tier of the ET stand? Hope he can see all the empty seats.

    We dont need anyone in or out imo. We just need a manager who can get the best out of them.

    ST is a disaster but he's backed Mackinnon this year.
    Whatever faults ST has and they're plenty he isn't responsible for Mackinnons inability to manage the players.

    Spanked money backing Sackie and Mixu too, but he's the joker who appointed all three

    He did appoint all three but it's Mackinnons inability to manage that's the problem.

    My criteria for backing a manager appears to be far different from yours. It looks to me like Ray had to identify players then go cap in hand to get them. Once he was into the luxury section, he had to ship players out prior to getting the likes of Fyvie in.

    Backing the manager to me is, here is a great big war chest so go and get your luxury players! However, that in no way excuses what has come to pass since!

    Difference of opinion Chick which is fine.
    For me I don't think it would matter who Mackinnon brought in he's not the manager we need.
    Another Cathro maybe?
    Full of theory but no man management skills.
    How much longer can we allow him on charge?

    Like many have said, on paper that squad would look good for the bottom half of the top flight so there is something missing.

    And i think you may be right in comparison to Cathro. They have both done very well at youth level in the local area with some of what i believe to be some of Rays shining lights breaking into the team now. Ray then did well at Lochee, Brechin and Raith, but all of a sudden(ok for a while) looks out of his depth!

    To be blunt he's on course to take relieve Brewster as our worst ever manager.

    This isnt having a go and is just my perspective agree with what you are saying but Ray has looked out his depth for 9-10 months. Before that it was bedding in. We are still bedding in apparently. His Arabzone interview is a disgrace again. Deluded and dangerous.

    I wanted him to succeed - i just cant see where its coming from. He seems stubborn like mcnamara and cathro and as inflexible in his philosophy as them.

    1 up top with 2 holding mids and 6 defensive outfield players and we lose a goal to a part time team at home after 4 minutes.

    Classic

    I personally think he has done that - its a division below afterall.

    Dont see that as having a go, just adding to the argument.

    Although i was willing to give Ray time to gather his own squad, there was plenty for me to moan about along the way. Playing players out of position, changing the team each week, shelling the ball to VDV from out of the sun and persisting with Fraser, out of position. Then some of the performances were shocking! Thankfully United have ****ed my arabzone account so i cant hear his excuses for now!

    So yes i wanted him to succeed, but all i see is a capable squad with the same old mistakes being made, and that only comes from one place!

    What pisses me off the most is when we got near the box 1st half today, its like they were back at the warm up, "hey, your ba, hey nice football, hey your ba, hey nice football" but nae GET THE BAW IN THE FECKIN NET!

    For me there is only one candidate for the post - tomobola Mixu

    Didn't play erskine most of the season. Seemed to have dropped him because he signed pre contract in Jan. Then suddenly erskine is playing in the semi at hampden.

    Every time we found a winning team and seemed to have turned a corner he would mess things up.

    He cared a lot which was good but he was truly terrible as manager.

    ST wouldn't pay or couldn't get a decent manager - we got Mixu and went down.

    I really believe an average manager with that group of players would have kept us up easy

    So to sum up we have a chairman who is unqualified for office and has bankrupted our club, a manager who is out of his depth, and because the chairman has bankrupted the club, no money to pay off the manager even if the incompetent chairman wants to.

    F uck me what a mess.

    Next it'll be Willo in the Hall of Fame

    We are a joke. Ram is right. We need to start with the Chairman. He needs to feel the heat on the street. He'll soon find a buyer when he can't walk through the Ferry without stress.
    Sorry to say this but desperate times call for desperate measures.
