According to a boy at STV we had a bid accepted for Ojo but he turned us down to go to Hibs.

Both clubs bids were accepted according to reports.

I would imagine financially both deals will be similar so now a straight competition between Heckingbottom and McInness.

Imagine a manager living off the successes he's had! Maybe we should freshen things up so we can finish 8th and 9th again every year?



The league cup win was 5 years ago I think we should let it go. Few second place finished should hardly mean he is untouchable

Over the moon at the extension purely for the joy of reading the twitter meltdown's of all the "f**k Milne, Kingsford, McInnes Et al." troglodytes.

This whole love in for del for finishing second is ridiculous, he can’t lay a glove on Celtic. He never gets his tactics right, dit’s back and invites pressure onto us. He is living off a league cup and a few second place finishes. Del has been great for us but giving him a new deal is the wrong call by Milne and co. There is also support for del from the cheerleaders because he turned down sevco. We will be lucky to finish 4th this year.

 

 

meant p&b obvs.

Not too sure on the lad given the reports but sounds like he's a decent player.

Hopefully a good signing for either club.

I expected McInness to get another 2nd place last season given his previous record.

I think he will restore 2nd place this season as I can’t see past Celtic winning it again.

I love your type of “support”. See these “few second place finishes”, it’s actually four in a row to be precise, they are achieved from four seasons of utter consistency. I’m not sure who people like you want to replace him, but you should be very, very careful what you wish for, because we would probably not be able to afford, or attract, Guardiola.

Through out they seasons we had a mix of no rangers, Dundee United, hearts, hibs. Then last year a decent rangers and we finished 3rd with a baw hair. So I think “ utter consistency “ is a bit of a stretch more like a perfect storm

Out of interest, who do you want to replace him?

There are some managers doing such a disastrous job (McLeish with Scotland for example) that you just need to sack them and then worry about who their replacement is afterwards. Its pretty obvious that McInnes is not an example of this and if we're going to get rid it should be with a clear plan of who we are going to replace him with, someone who will be a clear improvement. Who do you think we could realistically attract to the role who would fit the bill?

I understand that, and I’m not saying he has done a bad job ( maybe coming across a bit harsher than intended ) I said earlier he has done a good job considering the state we where in before he came. He has won us a trophy granted and the second place finishes have got us Europe and most of his signings have been on the money. I just think some of the fans treating him like a messiah is a bit over the score. I wouldn’t have gave him a new deal but I do agree we neee to have a clear plan. I think Gordon strachan ( I know he is at Dundee ) proper experienced manager and got a raw deal at the national side.

Have you thought about going to watch Hibs?
They like to freshen things up regularly, they’re the best footballing side on the planet, and you don’t have to worry about getting parked at Hampden.

We've had a "mix of no Rangers, Hearts, Hibs, or Dundee United" because they weren't managed as well as we've been in recent years..Hence why they've disintegrated or been relegated. Around 2012/13 aside from the Jambos financial problems I would say us, the Edinburgh clubs and United were in in similar positions...the difference being we've had management thats transformed the playing squad, kept hold of our best players and not ran at the first sign of a bigger paycheck. All while winning a trophy, reaching finals and finishing high enough in the league for european football five seasons in a row. Not to mention finishing above a club with 6x our budget for two years in a row. I'd class that as consistent.

I think this might be your issue tbh. Not one person on this thread is treating him as the 'messiah' or anything close to that. Pretty much every regular poster on this thread this season has had regular criticisms and complaints about him. The only 'over the score' comments here have been yours ramping up how much you think he has failed every time you post, you started off quite reasonable but trying to downplay winning trophies and regularly finishing second is a bit silly. People calling you out on this doesn't equal being part of the 'McInnes can do no wrong' brigade.

Regardless if they where mismanaged or not they where still not in the same division or really weak so we never had a proper challenge for the coveted second place
