    You’re basing your judgement on Jack Ross on 90 minutes?
    Ok. That seems fair.
    What about our manager lying down to Celtic & SEVCO... every game?

    Jack Ross used to be my choice to replace McInnes when he leaves and I would still be happy enough with him but Steve Clarke is starting to become a better option imo.

    If we’re judging managers on one game, then I’m choosing the 5-1 humping by St.Johnstone

    McInnes has beaten all of our choices...Clarke, Lennon and Ross. Please somebody say Murty!

    The OP is a pretty stupid comment to be honest.
    Ross takes a struggling team that were miles adrift at bottom of Championship to 8 points clear at the top 1 year later.

    That doesn’t matter at all,if you are only going to pick a replacement who hasn’t lost against McInnes you would be better saying something ludicrous like Brendon Rodgers.

    Still not sure about Jack Ross. Neil Lennon was my choice when I was convinced Del was on his way but I am certainly seeing the difference Steve Clarke is doing to what was a dreadful Kilmarnock side. He has impressed me a fair bit and I wouldn’t mind him being the manager at Pittodrie when McInnes departs.

    Similar to when McInnes took over our hot seat. McInnes has done a tremendous job here.

    Ross needs to prove himself more than championship level for me. They were routed in the league cup too.

    McInnes has zero pressure of the link with the Ibrox job this time so hopefully his thoughts and preparation ahead of the game are more professional than the last 2 efforts.
    Absolutely no excuses now...We have the better players and if utilised properly then a victory will be forthcoming. The balance of our team has to be spot on for bigger matches and this is generally where McInnes fails himself.

    Ross would still be my first choice to succeed McInnes when time happens and think another couple of years at Saints will only enhance belief that he could do the job here. If body language is anything to go by yesterday, he'd be particularly keen to see if he could walk in the giant footsteps.

    Do we have the better players though?
    SEVCO players DEFINITELY have a better big game mentality.

    I'm sceptical about Ross, nothing to to with yesterday, but I've seen it too many times, a guy has a nice purple patch over a season or so, is touted as the next big thing, gets a job with a bigger club, quickly reveals himself to be just another plausible mediocrity who found himself in a virtuous cycle for a while. I'm not saying that Ross is certain to be another, but there are 10 or 20 of these for every guy who comes close to delivering on the hype. Same thoughts apply to Clark. They still might be the most attractive options if we were looking for a manager, I'm just glad we're not.

    Yes, I believe we definitely have the better players. I agree we lack the big game mentality though and that is a lot to do with McInnes. He doesn’t show real belief in his players and try’s to overload the team with defensive players to stop the opposition. I also acknowledge that a few players generally go missing in these games or always play dreadful. We know who they are but since our manager keeps playing them then we will always be up against it. Shinnie etc must get the confidence knocked right out of them when they see some of the players around them keep gifting during these matches.

    Let’s see how good Ross is next season when he is up against us again. I wonder if he will keep playing players who underperform in these matches or does he adapt his team to give it the best chance of getting a result.
    I am not convinced yet by Ross but will certainly keep an eye on how he gets on.

    Sounding like he could be heading off to Portman Road and taking on the Ipswich role. ........

    Reliably informed via another football manager to get my mortgage on him going to Sunderland. 10/1 on Saturday morning. Now 4/1 and on the BBC gossip column.

    Not as clever as we thought if he takes on that basket case of a club.

    Ye think ?
    given what he`s done at Dumbarton then St Mirren , surely he could go to Sunderland for the routine 3 months . Get sacked with a Milliion quid pay-off . and then come back and take Falkirk / dundee Utd / Dunfermline /Partick Thistle / a.n. other into the SPFL " Premier " league. For fun ?

    Heck, he could buy a " diddy " team and do that for fun ?

    ( Sevco should be available for A Poond soon enough ? !! )
