Any particular reason you think that? Considering he totally fucked the job the first time around.

He’s an absolutely dreadful manager.

 

He has just left Queens Park

Alloa living rent free in your head

One of the absolute worst cliches on here.

Genuinely nobody gives two, nay one f**k about Alloa, in fact I quite like them as my big pal from uni is a diehard.

I’ve got a feeling one of Hall/Durnan will survive the cull along with Dixon, Telfer and Connolly. Possibly short term deals for the injured pair. 

Would love a couple of the 2 year deals to be mutually terminated into the bargain.

Agreed, would be too good to be true getting rid of both of them. I wouldn't mind Dixon, Telfer and Connolly staying. Gary Miller and Alston won't be going anywhere as nobody will be stupid enough to pay them anywhere near what we're probably giving them.

Most won’t be too disappointed

You need to get on the Facebook page mate, Sol Campbell then Ray McKinnon, ooft!

Aye because this page is at the cutting edge of managerial nuggets.
 

Campbell was just a shout, not a ringing endorsement. I get the McKinnon detractors but we’re a club in the middle of league 1, some folk should adjust their expectations.

I get we're taking a new route with the DOF but I really don't understand why we're making these decisions on players without the new managers say so.

Unless they've already been picked and we're just following due process...

Managers having to play players they never signed never goes down well especially when things start going south. Look at Marseille with Olivier Ntcham.

The Morton/Alloa games were the killers for him. Yes, the league 1 campaign was going awry after a decent start too. 

I think there’s unfinished business there. He probably wouldn’t make it to two years with us again but I think he could get us out of the division we’re in.

I get your point, but let’s not forget we’ve endured  a brutal three seasons with players better suited to basketball, shop window dummies and Sunday pub football get togethers.

Well, I have recalibrated my expectations radar to its lowest frequency, and yes, there’s a blurry but distanced Ginger God just about making an image, and yes, there’s a shadowy figure that might even be Paul Hartley, but it’s so low on the screen, it’s hard to be sure. Definitely no McKinnon though.

What you telling us here Banta? Reading between the lines Durnan will be on the list, please don’t let us down 🙏🏻 
We keeping anyone that’s out of contract? Be quite happy not to but expect we’ll keep a few.

100% our recruitment has been shocking and I think a director of football is a good idea in order to change that and take some of the pressure off the next manager, allowing them to focus on training and setting the team up correctly. But I don't agree if the manager doesn't get the final say on the players he has to work with and set up as a team.

I see where your coming from but do we really want to keep any of this lot ? I would say three maybe four I’d talk to about one year deals, the rest can go.

I would be more worried if a new manager came in and kept a majority........

True but I'm more concerned about it becoming the norm going forward with future signings.
