  1. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    Absolutely nothing we've not known for a long time. I'd have thought that the US job would be more attractive than all but a handful of national management posts in Europe.
  2. Friendly Next Month

    It's not remotely idiotic, if he thinks that winning this otherwise meaningless fixture might have the potential to help land an interim manager he doesn't rate, the job on a more permanent basis. Real idiocy would involve overriding such a context in pursuit of a puerile notion of patriotic loyalty.
  3. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    No he didn't. Obviously, his English was better than that of people like Barry Ferguson, but he was still far from fluent.
  4. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    Good point about the failure evident in losing to Georgia, before touting McLeish for the job.
  5. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    It's true, but it's not unique to Radio Scotland. You also get it with the main UK Networks' coverage of major tournaments. If an ex-player digs out a stat, or shows some other evidence of research, he's roundly mocked. I think there's maybe a wider cultural point somewhere about our players not valuing thought or learning, but I'm maybe overreaching a bit there.
  6. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    To say "he failed" isn't to deny that of course there are many variables beyond his control. In the task in front of him though, he did indeed fail. Your facile logic would mean that we're not allowed to say any managers have ever succeeded either. And we're not unbeaten in a year. We're unbeaten over a handful of games, one of which was against a half decent side.

    Chic Young actually did this the other day when someone mentioned Klinsmann. It ignores the fairly obvious point that if we were using nationality as a precedent, the one thing we'd definitely be ruling out would be going Scottish.
  8. Bigger Change Than Just The Manager?

    Yes, but he was drawing a distinction between those "deemed Scottish" and those who might otherwise be sensibly considered Scottish. I don't especially agree with him on the subject, but it's an absolutely valid viewpoint and your attack on him misfired. I'll not require any luck here, thanks.
  9. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    What? If sincerely held, that's one of the most bizarre views I've ever encountered.
  10. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    It was such comments that I was referencing.
  11. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    My greatest fear here is Lambert. He's as thick as shit.
  12. Bigger Change Than Just The Manager?

    Absolute rubbish.
  13. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    "Real football men"? Oh sweet Jesus.
  14. The Queen of the South Thread

    Yip, Glenafton would have been terrific. It's incredible that such an essentially simple process can cause such difficulty.
  15. The Queen of the South Thread

    Bloody Hell. They truly are imbeciles. Are the six and nine not underlined, to avoid just this confusion?
