Foran and esson are you smoking crack that'd be the worst combo in history I'd rather a chimpanzee than that pair of clowns

A chimpanzee smoking crack would have more intelligence than anything you've ever posted.

:amazed: put the crack pipe down , Ally McCoist ffs .

 

McCoist, he's so fat we would have to double the width of the tunnel for him to get pitch side.

Besides, no thanks. He's a has been in football, but now a world champion pie eater by the looks of it.

McCoist was offered the job years ago and turned it down due to our location.  He didn't do a very good job at Rangers even when they were playing part time sides every week.  If he wasn't great with a team that was always on the front foot, I wouldn't fancy our chances with him in charge of a side that could possibly (should we stay up) be under the cosh most weeks.  He seems like a nice enough guy, but he wouldn't be my choice.

Jack Ross or Darren Dodds for me both understand the game. Would also take Peter Houston in a heartbeat but he might be a division above by then.

Darren will have done his chances no harm by taking lowly Brechin into the championship by beating Alloa in a penalty shoot out.  I watched the last few minutes of normal time plus all of extra time and penalties on Alba.  Very enjoyable, and either of these teams, on current form, would be a handful for us in the Championship.  Get darren Dods back to the Longman I say.

Not a bad shout at all.

Unfortunately I don't think there will be a vacancy if the Blazers are allowed to stay

So it's been confirmed that a short leet, and hence a vacancy, actually exist?

Would be very happy with any of those 3-can't see jack ross leaving St Mirren to manage in the same league though..

Is Paul Sheerin still at Arbroath?

Foran will be in charge next season, I don't think the club are even going to issue a statement.

I'm afraid to say so but I think you're right too - more likely to see the departure of the 'bad apples' than Foran :(

The only football manager to have a worse win record than a certain R Foran

Was reading in the courier that Maurice Malpas may be interested in the General Manager post..

Could see a lot of discontent if RF is still in charge next season - protests,etc. We need unity & harmony (as well as kerping majority of current squad, of course..)to have a realistic chance of promotion next season - which I can't see us having any of the above with RF still in charge

I reckon that will be the case too-who knows! Suggested Barry Smith on another thread-working part time at east fife just now,did a decent job getting dundee promoted,I seem to remember.

Definetly NOT McGhee-or Butcher! Wouldn't mind Hartley...will have a point to prove after being given the boot by dundee. Noticed big Darren Dods is doing well at Brechin-big step up from part time though.

  Barry Smith  Dundee in the season 2012-13               had a premier league win rate of  11.54%   

which is worse than Richies whose win rate is closer to 17%. However in his defense his Dundee team may not have been prepared for the SPL as the were only promoted after Rangers went into Administration.

Fair point - the 3 names quoted above would be better..

Jack Ross

Darren Dods

Paul Sheerin

Although we will be stuck with RF, I fear. Maybe there will be a left-field choice that none of us will see coming..I would even rather have Malpas, despite his poor record as a manager..

Think the point about Dundee being ill prepared to play in premier league is valid - I just thought that Barry Smith knows the championship & would be looking to get back into full time management. Also annoys my Wife when I suggest him as she is an East Fife fan (as well as an ICT one..):lol:!

STV Sport has Sheerin the favourite to take over from Foran.
