Thread: The gaffer

  1. #1

    The gaffer

    Simply question folks , should he stay or should he go ...?

    If you think his time is up then who would you replace him with. Remember itíll need to be somebody that can work with a low budget
    Our poor crowds and possible lower final league position will have a knock on effect to next seasons finances

    I'd go for McIntyre and Dodds to replace Naysmith if the club have any ambition of getting to the Premiership.

    The very fact we would need to honour (pay off) the contracts of GN and presumably his assistant would also impact budget wise. I don`t see any progress under GN. He talks a great game and I think he comes over really well in interviews but the product on the pitch is pretty awful.

    Im 50/50 re the managers future but one thing is for sure, if Dumbarton get relegated its going to be one seriously tough division next season.

    If he does go I reckon Dobbie would be a strong bet for the hot seat.

    yep deek next manager has dobs name wrote all over it ,but as pointed out above low crowds ,and everything on a downward spiral at queens under our current leadership ,if we go any further in a backwards direction ,i can see us losing alot more fans ,so we are at a point ,either go for it and get to the financial safety of the spl or end up back at square 1 bounding about the lower leagues as a part time outfit ,after the success queens have had since turning fulltime i cant see the fans turning out if we take any backwards step anymore and could result in the end of queens .

    I think Gary has to go. Apart from a few good games he hasnt done anything. His signings have been poor, his team selection doesnt make sence and for such an experienced defender he cant organise the defence. We only play well when we are 2 goals down or if we start well and go 2 goals up we always crumble. He has had long enough to prove himself.
    Mcintyre with Dobs or Lyle player/assistant for me. Jim bringing the experience and Dobs/Lyle beeing attacking minded players could bring the flare we need. Mon the south

    Heard from a good source that Pep, Klopp and Mourinho have been short-listed if we stay full-time!

    Club canít afford to change manager so more of the same next season in a tougher league.
    Rather depressing for our centenary season.

    Be careful about asking for a change of manager as there are few promising and affordable candidates out there so it would be best instead to give the team our full support starting tonight against the Bairn's. These dwindling crowds are simply not sustainable for full time football and if you are a fan of the club these are the times where we really need to show just what it means to all of us. Mon the South.

    An excellent post Spike and something that we should all be mindful of.

    Changing the manager is not always the answer, but changing the way the manager manages might be a better option.

    Clearly, accepting a leaking defence and a young inexperienced goalkeeper is unsustainable for any club, and Naysmith should be actively encouraged to be looking for a replacement in that particular department.

    One other point I wold like to make is that 2018 / 19 might not be our Centenary season, - it might be seasob 2019 /20?

    Alternatively, of course, there is the option to make the most of both seasons to maximise the potential revenue streams.

    You are correct Mark, the Centenary season should be 2019-20, but 2019 is the Centenary year.

    I was also asking previously about what season should be the Centenary one.
    Queens first match was in August 1919 but were founded in March 1919. Of course, the club didn't play in the Scottish League until 1923-4.

    ODB - thanks for the confirmation, - which still eaves the potential to spread the impact over two seasons as 2019 is clearly involved in two Scottish footballing seasons.

    I accept that 2019 is our Centenary year, - but it would be madness to ignore the opportunity of extending it over two full seasons.

    Yes indeed Mark. The whole thing could be turned into quite a profitable venture, stretching throughout 2019.

    Yes indeed. The management team, half of the players and the BOD.
