Other weaknesses: no plan B, an over reliance on video analysis, poor at making substitutions, too reliant on his own favourite players to the detriment of others, poor signings (especially loan signings), awful record in play-offs.

Sounds like he should fit right in.

By the way, what is this 'play-off' you speak of?

So much for the inside info the announcement was being made on Thursday !

Nothing more than attention seeking.

 

It was Thursday here in Oz when it was announced.

Not that I was never going to renew my ST, although the thought did cross my mind a few times. But with this slight whiff of optimism, i'm up at 5 in the morning, reading this nonsense and champing at the bit  to get it, my auld boys and the new kit. Amazing what a new "manager" can do. COYB.

It’s a lot easier to give time, as a fan, to a guy who has proven success. 

Not a diddy who came from American women’s football, or a guy who who put the cones out for Mcinness, or a pair whos subsequent careers have been hairdressing and estate agents. 

 

Absolutely this. 
 

it may be difficult in his first season as he will have to deal with the dross you already have signed up. But give him a season to build the squad a bit and you’ll be laughing to the title. 
 

The only thing I would be concerned about is your full time status. I am sure there was hints that this season coming may be the last season of full time? Maybe I picked it up wrong. McGlynn has done well with a hybrid squad so it’s not all that bad. With a fair few more teams full time now in league one, I do think full time is the way out of that league

Wonder what the ST figures will look like next season, already seen a few say McGlynns appointment will make them renew having decided not to. Think the recruitment will be a big factor for some people though.

I do agree, might even coax a few back who haven't the last few seasons. If he gets us playing with an identity and a bit of heart the PATG numbers will shoot up too.

The early appointment of a manager is a good starting point.

I'll give McGlynn plenty time if there is evidence on the park of a cohesive unit, effort, teamwork and the knowledge we will actually be competitive in matches. All have been missing for a good few years now.

Arrived last night at Tenerife airport to a WhatsApp message showing FFC twitter update of McGlynn and Smith being announced, excellent start to a wee week chilling in the sun. Not getting ahead of ourselves but feels good to have people at the helm who have a bit experience and seem to know what they are doing. Well played the board for the professionalism displayed in these negotiations and the lack of leakage.

p.s when do they ST’s go on sale

This is meant in a friendly manner HSW.  I have noticed your recent contributions on here are way off the scale.  Maybe you should take a break, it's going to be a long summer.  We must be much of the same age going by some of your memories of early 70's games.  Chin up.

I have always seen HSW as a comical character from his mantras about Phil Rawlins evil plan to destroy the club & buy it for peanuts , asking advice on H&S from ARCO, to playing with a sweeper in 2022, to FFC going part time next season with 13 or 14 full time contracted players on the books but i feel he has really jumped the shark with this Leakgate nonsense.

He needs a long break like EdiBairn is having.

We lost so many goals through McCann when he played last season, he’ll be a back up imho.

That looks fine, but are you sure about Morrison, I just feel new has a better cross into the box and is a better one on one finisher 😁
