Thread: Mike Martin - do the right thing please

  1. #41
    We dropped points to a bunch of guys who donít count football as their only job.

    When that starts becoming less than unacceptable, youíre on a slippery slope.

    I've probably asked this before so apologies in advance.., but do the chairman an bods actually go to the games. If so, surely they can see what everyone else does and find it unacceptable and unlikely to improve. If we're not careful John Hughes might be the only option left and even he might turn us down...

    MM should be apologising for not sacking him In the summer for free. Horrific decision. We could've had David Hopkin or Stuart Mccall In.

    Still free:

    Jim McIntyre. Owen Coyle. Yogi. Jim Duffy. Robbie Neilson.

    They all at least know what's expected at our club.

    I'm all for stability but that will only come when the right person is in charge of the team and sorts the footballing side of the club.

    To be fair, you are giving me the fear with those options...

    Apart from Neilson, he'd be right at the top of my list, good manager at Hearts (failed in England but so did Levein and McInnes)

    We need stability with a decent manager

    Defender scores from 2 set pieces then a counter attack against a really poor side.
    Another set piece goal from a defender against the run of play. Only seen the Alloa provided highlights, but we could easily have lost 6-0 on Saturday!

    If you really want us back in the top league, then action has to be taken sooner rather than later, or its another season doon!

    Do you really think it's possible to build a championship winning team, almost from scratch, during one summer transfer window?

    To be fair Terry that's exactly what Jack Ross did last season, putting together the bulk of his team in the previous January transfer window which subsequently got them out of a right hole and kept them up, with the same team then going on to win promotion.

    Know what you're saying and agree but we're going to have to put up with seeing poor football and loads and loads of set piece goals for and against us, it's indicative of the league we're in unfortunately.

    My biggest gripe is that we have the players to be a step ahead of the rest but like most other posters we don't have the manager. I honestly don't think the players respect him.

    In a word, yes!

    It's certainly easier than the clown is making it look

    So not what I was asking at all then.

    Fair enough, I think it's too much to ask.

    What's also apparent is that employing a manager during a season is a big mistake, especially for the man in question. Fans don't have the patience for it. I'd like to hope if Csaba doesn't get a sensible time frame (not that the are any sign of this) then the best thing to do would be caretaker until the season is finished.

    Yes. Robbie Neilson did it. Jack Ross did it.

    I accept that we are gonna see poor football, but if we had a manager worth his wedge, then we have the players that are a step ahead of all but one team in this league. But yet again we are a good on paper side because of the manager and his relationship with the players!

    The worst thing for me is i have seriously lowered my expectation of our abilities, but we aint even good enough to meet that expectation!

    Someone else replied saying Jack Ross did it but then explained that, actually, he didn't.

    Fans of all clubs are like that
    I donít like shabba but if he got us promoted I would be quite happy to kiss his ass

    True but not all fans are like that.

    That's a bit disingenuous TTT. The point I'm making is that Jack Ross completely overhauled an ailing squad in a single transfer window and with little to no further changes effectively then won a championship and a half thereafter. The point is that it CAN be done in a single window. If the window he rebuilt things in had been in the summer rather than the January window the result would have been the same. FWIW though, I'm not convinced punting CL is the right answer either as I have stated on other posts. We can't keep punting, punting, punting. BUT, at the end of the day it is a results based business..........................

    Ross made 12 signings in the summer of the last year and 5 in January. Only Davis, McGinn and. Smith from the previous January window played for them for the bulk of last year. Pretty much to the number, exactly the same number of signings/players from last season, as us this year.

    We beat St Mirren at the start of last season, just as well he never got punted after that then.
