What's the appeal of Stuart Taylor other than he's a bit of an unknown quantity?  
His record isn't exactly great and he's been closely associated with serial failure Paul Lambert over the last few years.  
What am I missing? 


Brilliant coach, what the club are looking for.

Spoke to one of his ex-players (Limerick) and he was full of praise for his training methods, motivation, hunger and man management

it's still the same BOD though so ultimately it will fail and we will remain utter shite

I have been told Taylor will be head coach with Grant as asst

Would be more than happy with that. Probably explains why Dick and Hetherington are rumoured. Good experienced assistant.

Far too positive for this thread.

Like the sound of it.

He sounds perfect but I'm feeling you have some secret undertones

Any coach who can take a player and make them 0.1% better than what they currently are will be streets ahead of what we’ve had for 2 years plus tbf

Aye, the worry there is we have a DoF setting the squad who wants to talk up the likes Mark Durnan, who with 0.1% improvement would still be 99.9% donkey.

I think I'd prefer it the other way round if it has to be them. Not convinced by either though. This just smacks of a calculated punt . Probably on the word of Holt who hasn't exactly covered himself in glory of late.

Dixon , , Durnan,  hall, Connolly, telfer all signed their one year deals in late July last year so maybe that's why they haven't been released yet.  The rest contracts are either about up or happy to get out now.

The available data shows all players contracts expiring either 31 May of 2021 or 2022 (Mitch, Miller, Alston, Morris and Keena).

Correct. If a manager was to come in and want to keep any of that list then we are in for another year of pain.

If the new manager comes in and decides to keep the those that aren't on it then the same rules apply. Hopefully there will be another exodus in the coming days. The thought of the likes of Miller, Hall, Durnan, etc playing for us next season is nauseating.

That’s really sad news. Started at Gairdoch didn’t he ? What a striker in his prime. RIP John - taken far too soon.

Does sound encouraging (with the caveat that most of McKinnons favourites would probably say the same about him and his methods)

While I agree they aren't an exciting prospect, all manager appointments are a calculated punt.  There's no guaranteed success out there for the wages we pay.
