The big question is, of course: Will Aidan Keena be fit for any proposed restart? A lot of Bairns seem to be pinning their hopes on him, for some reason.

Also, there is not one snowball's chance in hell of Sammon being up for 2 games a week (& a few others as well). Anything other than an 18 game season would be madness.

“For some reason”!!!

The reason being our other forwards are really bad.

I don't quite get the Sammon statement, he has not really done much with us but I've never really considered that to be a fitness issue. He is arguably the fittest in the squad despite being one of the oldest.

I would have preferred Presley as DOF - good eye for a player 

He would certainly have his eye on the managers job. A lot more than what many perceive Holt does. Pressley is an egomaniac and I would jump at the chance to get back in the dugout.

Agree, we’ve looked woefully short of fitness in most games, we should be running over part time teams so hopefully this is addressed. I see Connolly was fit but has now picked up another injury, shame as fully fit he’s looked a decent player. As commented Keena is seen by many as our saviour, just hope he hits the ground running...

Saviour? No....Better than what we currently have had to endure? Absolutely

Keena has yet to prove himself and should therefore be classed as an unknown, a gamble.

He's fit for his age but looks utterly done after a short run of first team starts.

Signed a lot more dud than gems though. His ratio of success in the transfer market was abysmal with only a handful being any use.

Holt hasn't even been interviewed according to the papers. Four man shortlist of Pressley, Robinson, McIntyre and Wright.

Seems an easy link for the press/bookies to make. Heard a podcast mention him as one of the favorites but didn’t mention the fact he’s current our DOF.

Kilmarnock are suckers for a Sevco connection, but even that can’t extend to Fat Sally.
Reckon Holt might be closer to it than many think, but if he or McIntyre is chosen over Wright, then they too have a questionable hiring process.

McIntyre made an absolute hash of things at Dundee and must be a questionable appointment. 

If they don't go for TW from that 4 then liquidate them now.

Mccoist only quoted as an exe Killie player I would think. Could be why McIntyre is the favourite too even though his recent record is poor.

I can only presume that Wright is bloody awful in interviews or you'd think he'd be a complete no-brainer.

Agree, just had a look at the SPL table, ten points separating bottom seven clubs, any worthy board would go for an experienced manager with SPL experience & knowledge. Guessing Wright would be the preferred fit with what he’s achieved with SJ......
