To be fair, Chick Young was touting Jim Duffy to replace McLeish and Strachan as Scotland manager.

He has turned around Ross County with a limited budget . Imagine what he could do elsewhere

Wot?  If Hughes wants to sign a guy on £5k a week he'll be allowed to.

He's won two matches, and as mentioned below they don't have a particularly limited budget.

Wee bit of a stand-off between jack ross and Kenny McIntyre there! 
Pretty uncomfortable listening to be honest. I was close to preforming an audio version of Homer's reversal into the hedge.

Insisting McIntyre let him finish only to talk all over his next question. Demanding to be treated with more respect while treating McIntyre with very little. Not a moment he'll look back on with pride I hope.

Richard Gordon needs to realise he's commentating on radio channel. He just stops talking for a couple seconds after saying something like "flashed across goal" and expects the listener to guess what's happened.

Was it a sacking offence ?

( Did McIntyre not ask Ross if he was worried about his job ?  Was it  worse than the Lennon interview  ? )

Did the ball flash across the goal?

It was such an easy question to bat away if he wanted to, something along the lines of what could you have done better with the team. This is what fans want, or at least what I want, interviewers asking questions of managers that are out of the standard “how do think the match went today?”. But Jack Ross showed the problem with doing that, in that the manager gets all stroppy and it could end with the interviewer being banned by the manager/club. Not  a great fan of Kenny McIntyre but Jack Ross was an absolute arse.

Given the name of the commentator, you'd hope so.

And his desire for more respect is even sillier when you consider that he really only gets the respect as a head coach that he has because he's relatively articulate, sometimes wears a suit, and is better looking than John McGlynn.

He's a made-for-media coach who has increasingly little to back up his self-regard.

I hear you re the standard questions etc, but I actually don't give a toss what the manager says after a game. It will either be anodyne rubbish which has been repeated dozens of times before, or a rant in the heat of the moment. None of which really matter.

Anyone who's seen my posts on McIntyre in this thread already, will see an echo here - he's not my cup of tea at all. He's almost single handedly reduced Sportsound to nothing better than the advert ridden drivel that you can listen to anytime on Talksport or Clyde. Any presenter who covets Twitter as the court of popular opinion as much as him, can get in the sea. I get that the BBC isn't above derision, but it used to have standards. Not when he's about it doesn't.

If they ask this the manager 1 ) cannot answer yes or not , 2 ) might be asked to explain why the match went the way he thought it did

If the manager does not want to give the answer required he will not

This Killie supporter is extremely grating. 

Another supporter making an arse of themselves tonight - a Dundee United one this time. 

Again it would be helpful if Sportsound stop interviewing these people like club officials.
