My preference is for Paul Smith to take over McGlynn's mantle, but the status quo is fine. If Both go then I would expect a meh appointment followed by lower half of the table mediocrity.

Same as last time when he left

More annoyed about Spencer leaving than McGlynn, I must say.

However, let there be no doubt that the way the board have handled this has been grossly incompetent. I feel with these clowns in charge we'll be doomed whoever our next manager is.

 Cancel the statue.

That is a bit of a shit show from the Rovers, to be honest.   

Things were going too well up until December :lol:

Whether or not you think McGlynn is the right manager for the Rovers, the fact that the board haven't been able to keep him from leaving for a club in the division below is absolutely damning. 

We'll get nothing, but yet again we're crying out for transparency here. Why couldn't we compete with Falkirk? Are they offering more than the club think McGlynn is worth? Is it about budgets? 

Some of that might be "commercially sensitive" and what you might want to keep in house, but once again this board haven't earned the right. They're still hugely in deficit after the Goodwillie debacle. They've now lost out on a manager who was in situ. Explanations and plans are required.

If Raith Rovers cant convince John Mcglynn to stay at the club, then that is an incredibly worrying sign when it comes to who else they could - particularly when he has left to join a club who haven't kept a manager for a whole season in the recent past.

I'm not hugely fussed for an explanation. If it was taking a big uplift in pay and an extended deal then I'm happy he's away as the last 6 months warranted nothing of the sort.

Get the advert oot and start recruiting. We've not got the worst squad in the world so I refuse to believe we are not an attractive option for someone. Who tho, f**k knows!

Totally agree. We might disagree on whether McGlynn should stay or not but what is now unfolding is absolutely shambolic.

I do think there are some good options out there that would take us forward but I have zero faith in our board to make the right call.

Funnily enough what I've heard is it's nowt to do with McGlynn's salary but a disagreement over the playing budget which has taken a hit for next season.

I still largely blame the board here but McGlynn helped make us a pariah and has now fucked off. Club legend status is now officially revoked.

Yes, we have to move on. There was certainly good arguments for not renewing his contract to begin with. I just wish now that we’d gone down that route, announced it pre-Killie and he could have had an amicable send off and we could have the new man in the door already.

Oh dear, another John Sim interview/statement imminent ti explain this. 

'McGlynn left cause we couldny play our star striker, who is a nice fella, an its all everyone else's fault.  Ma baw, and if you aren't happy, bugger off and watch one of the other 41 teams'.
Probably about sums it up if he does make an announcement.  ;)

Whoever the PR person is at San Starko needs to ensure a microphone is never in front of Sims face again.
Club needs to move on from the PR disasters, and won't while he still gets a voice.  Unfortunately, money talks.
