Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Is there anything to suggest Rutkiewicz would be a success? I get he’s done a *decent* job at Stirling but has it been any more than that? A consistent mid-table League Two finish for a couple of seasons surely isn’t where the bar is for a manager just now?

I think he's a solid appointment, has done a good job at Stirling. Some of the other options look outrageous. I've still got PTSD from our Yogi Hughes era but other options like Kenny Miller or McIntyre surely can't be better than him?
McIntyre is proven at this level. However, I'm not a fan of "going back " when it comes to managers.

Under our current circumstances I think it would be a massive risk.
Think he’s done a decent job with Stirling and they seem to be giving Kelty a run for their money but it’s a big step up to full time management.
I’ve met Rusty on several occasions and he’s a great guy who speaks well about football. Under different circumstances, I’d be excited about him getting the job. Bottom of the table without a win though? It would be a significant gamble.
IMO, we had our chance in the summer with a clean slate for a Rutkiwicz, Mark Fotheringham, Kenny Miller type appointment.

This now needs a manager of experience.

I'm sure it's going to be Big Chipper just got a feeling.

I don’t know enough about their squad/budget etc to know if they should be doing better or if they’re overachieving. He’s been in charge for three years now so he must be doing something right.

I’d agree he’s probably not the right pick but would like to see how he coped at a higher level.

John Robertson giving DAFC Board a hint so thinly veiled you can see its knickers. If you’re not getting Petrie, get him in the door:

Quote

 

Asked whether he would be keen on the Dunfermline post, Robertson said: “It is irrelevant because they have not asked.

“I am not going to go out there and say ‘I want this, that and the next thing’.

“People know who I am and they know where I am.

“But they have to be hugely respectful and do things the right way, that’s all I am saying to it.

“I am not touting myself out there. That’s not for me. That’s not the way I am.

“I am an employee of Inverness and until anyone tells me differently, they will get everything I have got.”

You can forget Petrie. Ain’t happening. The chance to get him was in the summer, not one third down the line whilst we sit at the foot of the table.

The Robertson interview is basically a “if you want me, come get me” statement.

I'm a bit uncomfortable with us going to get anyone unless the applicants are truly dreadful, we went to get Grant and that didn't work out well.

Robertson may be experienced and able to steady the ship, which is what we need for sure, but beyond that he's not achieved much more than AJ or Crawford managed in their spells here that said by all accounts ICT don't have two bob but I feel this appointment has to show a bit more promise than purely steady the ship imo. I don't envy the task ahead it's a huge one, if Petrie is unavailable.

He finished above us in this league and so that's good enough for me. 1 and a half year deal with an extension clause if playoffs are achieved in that time. Get it done

Ship steadying is all I'm after at the moment tbh.

If Robertson came in and got us any higher than 7th I’d happily let him have a crack at it next season.

Didn’t do us any harm.

That's true and his win % is decent at most of his clubs which is always good to see.

I just wonder if the German euro could lead to a manager agreeing to deliver more than staying up although that has to be the first objective. A win today and over Queens and Hamilton this quarter I feel is a must.

Oh for sure, I think any manager that keeps us up is likely to have next season to have a proper go.

True, but McGlynn is held in very high regard right? I don't think anyone loves or hates McIntyre either way.

There were some who for his first season back weren't happy with him and called for his head on a near weakly basis.

While I certainly wasn’t one of those people I remember at the time being a bit sceptical about the merits of appointing McGlynn for a second time, mostly for “never go back” reasons. We beat Dumbarton 5-1 in his first game back and all feelings then subsided.
