I didn’t think of it like that but actually, that’s a good point.

Disgusting really.

There’s so many chiefs  led by a committee of the msg and their pals , who on agreement with our investors in America  instruct the board and their crew who pass on the advice to the three managerial staff and the new head of development who set it out for or 20 full time players who ask corzo what the shape is until we take the field against Hartley and his faither in laws team of part timers who go over their team talk in the boozer after training on a Thursday night and then hump us ! Meanwhile the boy from Camelon watches on from the sidelines wondering why he didnae  just stay wi the juniors.  Seems as if there’s something far wrong so maybe could do worse than ask Alex Totten for his input just to simplify things 

I’ve never understood how he hasn’t been more involved on the football side of things.  He must be watching the whole situation and wondering why he’s still even there!!

He's a former coach with the Foundation who was doing coaching elsewhere and then returned to work in the shop initially. I think he always saw that a starting point for getting more involved in the professional game. 

He's been watching the opposition and doing video analysis alongside his "day job"  for a while now; I think it was BPM who first mentioned it a year or so back. When Gary Holt arrived he began working fulltime in the football side, hence why you would have seen the club advertising for a retail person not that long ago. 

The role itself isn't unusual. Alan Maybury picked up various people from his contacts with Stirling Uni who did the same job, usually students who were studying for Sports degrees at the Uni.  They were considered part of the club, travelled on the team bus, came with us on preseason trips and could often be seen haring down the tunnel at halftime to show the manager what they'd picked up in the first half. Or fulltime for that matter. Graeme McArthur was the last person who did some of this but he left when we got relegated to League One. 

Different folk have been doing this kind of role for a while, under different managers, but they've usually worked in the background so most fans would have been unaware of them. So I was a bit surprised to see Liam named in the interview. 

Edited to add - I don't see anything wrong with someone feeding information into the coaching staff, which I presume is all he's doing just now. It's up to those who've played the game professionally to decide what they do with that info. Corrzo will certainly have various qualifications but he's never played at the level that Holt, McCracken or Miller have. 

BSLM - “Alright Corrzo, was really impressed with the way you sold the customised name and number with that away strip - what you doing on Saturday ?”

Corrzo - “Well, due to Covid the club shops shut so should be free”

BSLM - “Excellent, we need you in the dugout to help us mastermind a defeat of Forfar”

Corrzo - “Nae bother BSLM, I’ll even bring my iPad”

Mr nice guy Miller has pretty much dropped this guy in it. Every club has guys like him behind the scenes for f**k sake.

That’s why no interview was released on Sunday and whatever has been agreed with M&M and then the staged theatrical interview ( which was simply appalling) this guy for no reason has been booted black and blue without one hearsay of what his role actually constitutes.

Yep debunks the theory of how nice a guy Miller is. Apparently screwed over Houston and now another guy to try and save his own skin. Get him out the club!

You're actually spot on, anger having subsided. It's not this no mark's fault he's being asked for tactical input from PT Barnum's finest and named by P45 bound Miller. 

Still hopefully the new boss has a full clearout of everyone whether they have a nickname or not.

With his recent history of ill health I would expect he wants feck all to do with this shambles.

Another thing that annoys me about that interview is the talk of “hard work” and “it’s the key to everything we do”.  Of course it’s important but surely the players switch off hearing this all the time.

There are times to express yourselves, time to take the sting out of games, time to fight. 

I’d say decision-making should be the central theme, though I suppose actual footballing ability helps with this.

The idea that having 2 managers to share blame isnt enough, and they need to not only acknowledge that they have further spilt their role, but use that to further divide the blame is cringe. Anything not to take responsibility for their own failings. Dont recall Corrzo getting any credit when we went back to basics and beat Clyde the other week.

Flailing, embarrassing stuff.

Getting away from what was said, I thought Miller looked under pressure and severely stressed. McCracken looked haunted at one of the other recent interviews. These guys aren't coping which might explain why Holt is stepping in, but that now puts them in an impossible situation. If they get us up, people will assume it's because of Holt. For their own mental health, they need to step down but I can understand it's not easy to walk away from a wage so the club needs to make that decision for them.

It's a hard road for both of them if they want to stay in football. Will need to grind at a Stirling Albion or similar for minimum wage after this job and hope you catch the eye of a full time club. I think they can both see a career slipping away.

Anyone else concerned that with three ( maybe two) of our key ( better than the others) players needing scans, why on earth are we still waiting one/two weeks on ? FFS some of the most important games coming up, but can’t we get these scans accelerated, or privately paid for ?

( just noticed same point on other site)

That Lee Miller interview......how many managers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Shape, shape, shape....ffs. ‘We change our shape to suit the opposition’

What??? I mean, this is 3rd tier, we’ve the biggest budget and we’re top of the league. Just set up a consistent 4-4-2 and dominate. Just don’t confuse players by asking them to perform in a different way each game. Largs mentality, quickest way to failure, proven time and again.

We will be in this division next season.
