  1. Absolutely this. it may be difficult in his first season as he will have to deal with the dross you already have signed up. But give him a season to build the squad a bit and you’ll be laughing to the title. The only thing I would be concerned about is your full time status. I am sure there was hints that this season coming may be the last season of full time? Maybe I picked it up wrong. McGlynn has done well with a hybrid squad so it’s not all that bad. With a fair few more teams full time now in league one, I do think full time is the way out of that league
  2. Kevin Thomsons could be if he is offered a full time contract he can go. Same goes for any other part time team manager, I’m sure ray McKinnon had this clause when we got him?
  3. If McGlynn did stay then he’d always have the DG thing hanging over his head. Whilst him moving on means that he’s not always going to be associated with that signing. A fresh start is probably what he wanted, a step out of the way and into the background. I don’t blame him for moving on but I would have liked him to stay for another season or two. but hey, football managers moving to different clubs happens almost weekly nowadays so it was going to happen to us at some point
  4. I’ve heard he’s off to st mirren, league one is way below his level. Bene is slowing up and league one would suit him, Spencer would be a cracking signing for them tho
  5. With such a competitive league next year, regardless of play off results, I’m not sure who is going to win your league but McGlynn will certainly have you there or there abouts with the play offs as a second chance of going up. I am sure we will pass each other come the end next season so all the best folks and if the pars do go down please make sure they stay there

  10. Fear of possible further backlash from some fans and the added bonus of extra money, but if a no brainer for JMcG to move on. Hope he stays tho
  11. I’d take a one year deal with the option of another year if we make the top four. Gives us the opportunity to part ways should we fail to make the play offs again next season
  12. I’m sure Sim said in his interview that DG was looking to play abroad and not in Scotland?
  13. With the pictures all over social media of the meet the players and cup trophy, today is just not the day for this clown to speak out.
  14. I don't think the BoD have made a decision on McGlynn yet. The goal this year was to finish top 4, although unlikely, it is looking like we wont make it. It is only when we have confirmed ourselves as out of the top 4 that the BoD will make that decision. The cup win may just sway them to keep him for another season but I don't think we should offer anything more than one season, if anything at all. As said by many others, the market is looking like very slim pickings. The choice of all these other duffers other clubs have tried isn't exactly setting the hedge on fire. McGlynn could still be the best we can get. I cant see any other championship manager jumping ship to us, league 2 managers aren't exactly top picks either and league 1, well we are really only looking at Petrie who is linked to every full time position but never moved for whatever reason or Ian Murray at airdrie. He could be a shout if they don't make it through the play offs but doubtful he would move if he managed to win them. Next season really is going to be crunch time but i am so glad we got out of league 1 when we did. My fear was that we would end up how Falkirk are just now.
  15. Partick thistle were sitting 5th (I think) in league one with 8 games to go. This was a shortened season but they did go on a fantastic winning streak to win the league. Anything is possible
