Even though it's the Sun, can't see them publishing that without a good source. Any unbiased fan can say he's worked wonders for Killie and transformed the feelings of folk attending Rugby Pugby from fears of relegation into joys of potential European outings next season. Hope he translates these skills to the unenviable task of making Scotland not shite.

Question is, who takes over and attempts continue what Clarke started? Should Alex Dyer be given a shot, or should someone else come in instead?

Much like Billy Brown I suspect Alex Dyer is a great no 2 , the soft touch when compared to the hard manager , to go from one of the boys to the boss is very difficult see Brown , McCoist , McCulloch etc etc 

Im sure Billy Bowie will ask the right questions of SSC re his successor

Alex Dyer all day long

On what basis?  Is he tactically astute like Clarke is?

I think we have to undertake a proper selection and interview process to get the best person available, not rely on sentiment, as we could end up with another Gary Locke scenario.  

I am clinging to the hope he's stringing the SFA along and is going to tell them to 'xxxx off" on Monday morning.   Sadly I don't believe this will be the case and he will be gone by Tuesday. 

Hopefully he finishes with a win against the Orcs tomorrow and reels in Gerrard again.

On the basis of continuity of success. Until he failed I think he would be the sensible appointment. Also, a new manager is going to struggle as the players have been coached to a level above their ability.
Dyer has the respect needed to influence the players.

In my opinion.

It looks more and more likely though. I'd love AD to get the job. Clarke was an assistant for years and made a success of his first management post.

Fair enough - we'll agree to differ.

Hope you are correct.   

The SFA have acted with no respect for us in this matter when you consider the importance of tomorrow's match

Have you read Baz's comments on the Killie forum?

We could still have continuity, a la Clarke at Chelsea, without necessarily appointing AD as manager.......

3rd or 4th place makes little difference, hearts aren't beating them in the final.

Besides I've a sneaky wee feeling that Killie will win tomorrow....

David Moyes for me

 

Another experienced manager that had success in England and then fell away and be hungry for re-establishing his reputation

 

no thanks to any current manager in Scotland or the usual suspects as will be trotted out by lazy media

Moyes won't come to a team of our size. We need to be realistic here. However, I nearly chuck the radio through the window when Off the Ball were talking about Danny Lennon or Jim Goodwin for the job. f**k right off. Sportsound is going to be painful listening in the coming weeks as they try to get their mates the job.
