That you just back from the stadium? 👀

No, there's nothing football-orientated that I know of planned for this week, or at least nothing that I'd be involved in.

I posted yesterday that I expected some sort of interim announcement this week but I doubt there'll be any real publicity for it. A few lines on the website and then let whoever comes in get on with it.

I remember we once had a striker who fancied being a manager. Got a job at the Shire. Think his name was Ferguson. Wonder what happened to him?

The worst decision ever taken by FFC.  Told when he applied that they wanted somebody more experienced. One of the great what if's !

Miller and McCracken as interim managers.
Huge gamble by the club . once again no thinking behind Sacking RMc . if both are leaving their present clubs then its going to be them both as new management team . does it surprise me No . total clowns running the club

The last two experienced managers have been excellent right enough.

Can you name a realistic shout that’s not a gamble?

I agree with your last sentence.

Every appointment in football is a risk.

If McIntyre got football playing like how he had us in the championship he'd be a success at this level, by all accounts done very poor at Dundee though.

When you look at things in hindsight did St Mirren not sack him and say he will never be a football manager.

Wouldn't be overly convinced if this was permanent, but I'm glad to see two people coming in who know the club well and have some kind of attachment to it. I hope it works out and hopefully they will be able to instill some passion into this bunch and create a link between the team and fans again.

This could be the most sensible thing the board have done for a while. 

If they get off to a good start then they can have the job until the end of the season and see what develops!

Happy enough with this intern appointment, would like to think there is a view to making it permanent should results work out. But two experienced players, should bring a wealth of knowledge, coming from out with the club also is a bonus as it means they aren’t going from player to manager at their own club.

Anyone know why it is only on an interim basis? How long is interim?

Is it a try before you buy? is there a takeover going on behind the scenes? Do they even have someone else in mind?  Hopefully the press release will shed more light.

Would have preferred someone like Darren Young but will get behind a Miller McCracken combo.

It must be untill the end of the season, why would Miller leave Livi for a 2-3 week gig.

Already excited for you lot getting carried away after a couple of wins, changing your avatars and creating nicknames for Lee Miller, before wanting him sacked this time next year. It happened with Hartley and it happened with McKinnon.

In theory even if they arent at the start of a glittering career, they should improve things for us. Ray and the playing squad had veered off down a wrong path. This should allow a reset with no focus on loyalties to certain players.

That said, making an interim appointment like this at any other club might make the fans discuss long term plan, the board must have someone lined up who is out of contract in summer etc... Not us though. This is just another blind flail at the pinata by them.

By f**k I hope it works because I would hate to see the magnificent big b*****d hounded.

Oh, and player manager as soon as the window opens. Miller would torture defenders in this league.
