I could be wrong but I can’t remember Motherwell or St.Johnstone having such a process for their last managerial appointments. I can’t think of many clubs our size that have an open application process Most seem to know who they wanted. We actually have a full time member of staff who’s been in position for ove 4 months now and we’re sounding out people as clearly we don’t have a clue who fits the bill. 
 

The last time we a manager Yogi sounded willing to be asked but instead we appointed M and M. There are good managers out there who would take the job but not apply. To get these guys though we have to go to them and make them feel wanted. Not sound them and amongst possible others and ask them to apply. 

To be perfectly honest if you're too up your own arse to put in an application for the role why should we want you as manager. Hartley was headhunted and never stopped going on about it. Most clubs I imagine will do the same process as i've listed they just won't make it as public as we have. But in our position we're better off making it public as we're so far away from the Motherwell's of this world right now.

Tommy Wright applied for the Motherwell job and they chose Graham Alexander instead as far as i'm aware so they did have an application process. 

I want someone who's hungry to manage our club not someone who has had their arm twisted and isn't fully in it. If that means we get 100+ applications and 90% of them are shite so be it. The other 10% can be the shortlist and we select the best from there.

Daily Record which obviously you take with a pinch of salt but they've most likely got the shortlist bit right.

I actually have sympathy for whoever gets the job as they are on a hiding to nothing from the off. Highly unlikely we get someone with a proven track record so they have a job on their hands winning us over. No matter who gets it, we as a support are resigned to the fact that it's highly unlikely our board are going to get it right. Same with unknown players coming in, before they kick a ball we will have them branded as shite. It's not the supports fault it's just the way things are at our club just now.

Had some time to marinate over the comments attributed to Gary Deans, and I have to say my mind is a bit blown....

Not just a "leak" from the club, but the actual chairman who.... Revealed a players medical issues which hadnt been made public, slated a player of the clubs ability, alerted the Scottish football world to the impending availability of a contracted player... Cant remember what else, but really.... This is quite mental isnt it. It shows where we are and how we are run as a club that we discussed the merits of what was said on here for a wee while and dodnt really step back and go "what the f**k is this guy playing at?"

I'm not convinced this conversation ever took place tbh.

There is that, and to be fair to CC52FFC, some way to go out if thats the case emoji23.png

There were too many specific details for it not to be true. Also a few in the knows on here piped up backing the information when it was posted.
