Same with Garry Bollan at Forfar a few months back, cant remember how they got onto the subject, possibly just the League 1 promotion race this season.  Anyway he got them promoted in 2017 and was then miles out of his depth with them in League 1,  Got pumped 6-0 off someone, can't mind who, and got the sack.  This came after a very poor run of results too.

The pundits, mates of Bollan of course. were giving it the 'he got your pishy, diddy club promoted, how fucking dare you sack him'.

The media's relationship with footballers and managers in Scotland is stark contract to other countries IMO.  Up here they;re all pals and the hacks try their hardest to get their pals into jobs.  Elsewhere it's story after story about how fucking shite a player or a manager is, and they (usually rightfully) campaign to get them sacked or dropped from the team for someone clearly better.

 

I don't think it's an exclusively Scottish phenomenon, although it's very prevalent up here.  There's a wee group of managers in England that are on the merry-go-round of

Appointed > Generally do abysmally > Sacked > Take a break from the game > Start appearing on Goals on Sunday / Sky Sports News > SSN then links them with jobs > Appointed > ...

Rinse and repeat.

Ah the Sam Allardyce/Neil Warnock/Alan Pardew/Steve Bruce formula.

Replace McIntyre with Hughes, County with ICT and Tom English with Alan "Biscuits" Preston and you've got the exact same scenario with us from 2016.
Or us with McNamara in 2015, and the c**t didn't even manage to win us a trophy

I remember that, he got us promoted so we should be grateful, despite a huge list of issues:

Getting relegated in the first place
An abysmal cup record (losing to Linlithgow in a replay after being 3-1 against 10 men in the first place, losing to Formartine)
Lack of plan B and avoiding making subs
Bottling league 2 title
Changing our approach to go more defensive when cruising to the title
Falling out with players
Bizarre karaoke rendition of we didn't start the fire
Set for relegation from league 1.

Since leaving we have managed to survive relegation and are all but certain to be in the promotion play offs. How many of the Sportsound team even know that? Richard Gordon probably and Jim Spence but it wouldn't surprise me if the rest didn't. They'd probably struggle to even name a player.

Richard Gordon gets a bit too much credit. He's as clueless about lower league football as the rest of them.

Maybe. It probably helps him that he's surrounded my morons so sounds better by comparison.

There was folk on Radio Scotland (probably Chick Young) calling for Paul Hartley to get the Hearts job when Cathro got sacked.  Same goes for the ones calling for Barry Ferguson to get the Rangers job, despite being sacked by Clyde a few months earlier.

Tonight - a long debate on how the team that routinely pump everyone else, win all the trophies and have much more money than everyone will rebuild and ensure they are stronger next season.

When has Sam Allardyce generally done abysmally leading to being sacked?

I was all for Barry getting the job, they'd be straight back down into the seaside leagues without all the liquidation stuff.

I read on the League 2 forum that they didn't even mention the result of Clydes appeal last night.  A decision which greatly affects the league season at both ends of the table not even being mentioned is pathetic.

I'd imagine they were even aware of it happening.

Micky Stewart talking sense again, how many years does it take to stop rebuilding and have a nucleus of players you can trust to go forward.

Yep, the old Jim Cornette story again - 

'I used to think you were a dumb fuck, but so many dumb fucks have come along since, you've moved up the ladder without doing anything'.

Chick Young calling for Jim Duffy to be considered for the Scotland job is the one I always remember. Can't remember if it was before or after he got punted from Morton but either way, f**k!
