Ditto. 

I don't think McGlynn will walk, he'd have done it by now. I also suspect he'll have the backing of the board. Can't punt McGlynn without the remaining board being held to account and walking also, which, for the moment, I don't think will happen. Any reshuffle will happen in the summer imo. If we don't go up then I reckon McGlynn will call it a day and it'll come out that it was his decision 'took the club as far as I could' more so than 'the aftermath of the DG saga was too much to handle'. 

For the remainder of his tenure and this season I'll get behind the team and that includes McGlynn. 

Couldn’t have put it better. 👍🏼 Let’s get behind the team for the rest of the season.

What about big Jim and his denial? Wind your neck in twat.

I don't give a shit about the rubbish you post on here , but at least have the decency not to have a user name related to a former manager who would be disgusted to have anything to do with you.

I see there's talk that Sean Mackie is free to leave Hibs. I know we're not restricted to just signing former players, but he looks like the kind of big, physical full back that would do well in this kind of system.

I think McGlynn will go at the end of the season. It's clearly been a huge misjudgement to say the least and no matter what happens next it'll clearly leave a big mark on what can only be described as a stellar legacy with the club. Twice we've been in the doldrums and twice he's dragged us out by the scruff of the neck. The whole incident is hugely disappointing, and it's clear he knows that. 

As mentioned on the k107 twitter spaces, I think a more important question just now is how do we change the structure at the club. It's all well and good to say "McGlynn out. Sim out. Sim's crony's out" but then what are we left with? Any structural changes will likely take months if not years. For now, I'll happily get behind the team at the Partick game. 

I don't believe that any of the people involved are bad people.  I think there were multiple failures in the system we have which culminated it us making the worst possible choice with a staggeringly bad financial outcome.  There needed to be more people in that boardroom pushing back on Sim. More folk saying "how will this be perceived in the community and by sponsors?". 

I think the question needs asked about why we need a CEO in a club of our size? Especially if they're seemingly going to mislead sponsors. While it was never going to be perfect, I appreciate McGlynn at least making the effort to talk about the situation. I'm glad it wasn't just "statement and no questions" but rather that he'd take questions over the topic. It's a hell of a lot more welcome than our directors who we'll hear from once a week, which is when we go live on facebook for the Super Lotto draw.

Because it's not more important what he's done off the park, this is all about his ability as a football manager. 

His comments today were absolutely shit, he's admitted he had a major hand in the signing which makes the mental gymnastics over the past few days to try place all the blame on the signing on Sim look a bit ridiculous. His talk of having a wife and daughter so he understands just make him look more ridiculous, because despite that, despite the public outcry by the Raith fans he still chased Goodwillie, a rapist. 

Raith will quite rightly get a shed load of stick, and hopefully miss out on sponsorship while they continue to laud a rape apologist. 

Oh f**k off ya townie c**t

Of course, this will never be forgotten about, and for me there’s a lot more questions to be answered from the BoD.

After hearing McGlynn & Benys interview it does give us a wee bit, but not much of a clearer vision as to how this all gradually spired out of control. Yes ok, McGlynn approached the board but as you can hear him explain him nor the board did not anticipate this reaction. 
 

Back in dec when these rumours had been circulating, and emails has been sent from fans/sponsors etc. These emails were not reaching McGlynn &managment which I can understand, if they were, I don’t think we would even be talking about this subject right now.  
 

Surely our fans can see after being here how many years, he wants the best for the club as he always has. 
 

As for apologising to said victim, I obviously completely understand. I feel he certainly did firstly touch on it, but also feel he couldn’t direct or name for legal reasons etc.

Some amount of gymnastics to come to that conclusion like. 

 

John McGlynn signed a rapist.

Talk of McGlynn leaving or not at end of season?

For me it comes down to the football, if it weren’t for events of last couple of weeks then our form in last 10 games or so would be getting seriously questioned and scrutinised far more than it is.

’If’ he can get us performing again, winning games and us having a decent fist at playoffs then I’ve no real issues with him still being here next season, if we plod on as we currently are then he would have to go, we have been regressing all season despite adding to squad.

Whatever happens, will always be held in huge regard from myself for his hard work and dedication.
