Thread: Jack Ross

  1. #1

    Jack Ross

    Linked with Barnsley. Saints will only win league by 20pts now if he goes.

    Barnsley would do well to get him.

    Fingers crossed.

    The way Iím feeling at the moment though Livi have more chance of winning the league than us

    Be interesting to see if he goes. Barnsley bigger club and play in better league but me be wary after looking at other Scottish managers who went down south. Neilson at MK Dons a recent one who failed.

    Can stay here, get promotion and see what comes up in the summer.

    Either way, St Mirren will win league.

    Man o' War, your short, direct style of posting is very much appreciated on this board, but on this occasion your strive for brevity has caused you to overlook the words 'try to.' I'm sure you will identify the obvious omission?

    United's only hope of promotion is via the play offs.

    Everyone knows what the team needs to be doing - the players have been drinking at the last chance saloon for a few months now.

    But there really can't be anymore excuses for not being ready and organised.

    If he's on £1,200/wk at St Mirren I reckon he'd be on 10 times that at Barnsley.

    Signing so many players in January has caused this to be more difficult than we might imagine, especially with a new manager just in the door. So, unfortunately, there are loads of excuses for not being ready and organised. IMHO, this is exactly what's been wrong with us since the turn of the year.

    If I was Jack Ross I'd give It a swerve and wait. If he gets St Mirren the title then he'll get a bigger job than Barnsley. Although If he's on 1500 a week he could quadruple his wages so that'll be on his mind too I'm sure.

    All we can hope for Is It ****s them up and we somehow capitalise.

    St Mirren are winning the league, key injuries at a terrible time has killed our hopes of 1st

    If Ross did leave them James Fowler his assistant would just take over and it would be continuity for them, he has been a manager at QotS on his own and fine a decent job and will be playing a part in the success along with Ross

    We just need to concentrate on getting 2nd then doing all we can in the play-off ties, then we need the fans to be right behind it whether you think we can do it or not is not impossible

    Unless Ross takes him with him....

    lets face it even if ross goes and he takes fowler with him we are still playing too much catch up.

    it would take a monumental collapse for us to catch them and even then we would need to find some sort of form to do so.

    we need to focus on securing 2nd, finding some form then go from there. if we manage to get anywhere near saints come end of april then great if not then we can feel confident we can go up via playoffs due to the form we had shown in the later part of the season.

    no point looking at saints when the gap is pretty big. focus on 2nd for the time being. make sure we dont end up in a similar position to last year were we needed to play 6games in quick succession to go up.

    for the record i dont think ross will go.

    Take it one game at a time.

    how much know how do you need to turn down the Dees?

    I donít think ross winning Scottish championship will give him better opportunity than this

    Look at neilson example. He promoted hearts and got them to third. He only was offered mk dons in league below.

    English prem is a mega money league. Their championship is big. If offered would be very off for ross not to take it and want his staff with him

    Obviously interested then.

    From that article does seem that they want him and he is interested in move.

    Canít see McCarthy would leave Ipswich for a more relegation threatened club IMO.

    Good appointment for both club and manager Iíd say if he does move.

    Will make little difference to United if he moves - St Mirren have won the league.

    Sadly, I think United have still to hit rock bottom with more draws and defeats to come ( hopefully I am proved wrong ).

    Each of the 3 managers appointed over the past 2 seasons were given the remit of getting United promoted, anything less than winning the play offs will be a failure in terms of job remit for this season.

    United need players on the pitch who don't like losing, won't accept defeat and will fight for the ball on every inch of the pitch and give 100% to their manager. We need winners in the team, players who play to win.

    What we don't need are players who give up and play like a bunch of school kids - and we have a few of these in the squad.
