Head coaches. Do they have someone in mind for manager?

No, they will be managing the team.

The Falkirk Herald report on Wednesday speculated about someone else coming in for recruitment and there were comments made about a new football structure. It would seem logical then that someone else will be coming in, possibly in a sort of Alex Smith-type role.

What an absolute shambles.

Appoint two complete rookies as interim managers, despite them leaving employment elsewhere. Bizarre to start with.

Invite applications for a permanent manager and tell the press about the high number and calibre of applicants.

The interim pair easily beat a pub team and a slightly better pub team followed by a garbage performance and underwhelming draw against a team who had been struggling in recent weeks. They get appointed ‘permanently’ but really only until the end of the season.

We need to win this league!

Utter joke.

At least it's only until the end of the season. Another bizarre decision. First test of any note whatsoever last week and we were absolutely brutal. Should have at the very least been conducting a proper interview process. They're just hoping that this might lead to some kind of result tomorrow which will take the heat off them at the AGM.

I think this is a shocking decision tbh. I haven’t seen anything new the past few games and I think if we lose tomorrow they will be getting it tight. There was no rush to make them permanent. The torys getting in and now this. I am at my wits end! I hope they prove me wrong!

The cynic in me reckons this was their intention all along as it's the cheap option, but they had to keep up the pretence of a proper search.

Like when they announced 100 applicants and gave PH the job who didn't apply?

They didnt even come close to doing the pretence well though. Big Lex strrikes me as having the mind of a child. No patience... The plan might have been like you said but the big slug couldnt wait and had to put it out there. In keeping with the clear theme of them thinking we the fans are thick

For those thinking we were going to get some messiah in just wasn’t going to happen. The most unattractive club considering the toxic, poisonous situation between fans and those jokers upstairs. Sorry M&M you are  both being used as puppets, just bloody hope you both show a pair and demand that you get change in the transfer window, without it you will be lambs to the slaughter with this set of so called players.
Part of me wonders if this has been announced pre January as a telt to the players. This is who you are working for like it or lump it. Its the only kind of rationale I can stretch to if I was to really try for one.

Can’t put it any better myself. As much as I want these pair to do well, this is a scandalous decision considering what’s at stake and the timing.

Is John Park still about?

Christ, this is mental. Wish them both well, but what a complete and utter mess yet again. Lex has clearly taken the Oliver Hardy role, so I guess AT will be Stan Laurel.

After all that has gone before, and Ollie’s recent blah blah blah, they pull this stunt.

As I say, best wishes to M&M, but those answering to them (the players) might be the smaller issue compared to Stan and Ollie upstairs.

Mental response to this on the club’s social media.

We have the ownership and team we probably deserve, to be honest.

I’m close to being done. 

The usual sweetie wives and "COYB disaponting to looose to Aidrie but we go again next week!!!" brigade out in force lauding this as some kind of masterstroke. I truly despair.
