Surely the likes of Falkirk SHOULD be looking at him?
 
If you were him would you give what is apparently a very good job to manage Falkirk?

Depends how good his off the field job is and how desperate he is about getting into full time football. They're hardly an ideal candidate though as they'll no doubt for a full time side anyway be on a shoestring budget.

Whether he'd be interested or not is one thing but you'd think they would looking in his direction! 

Side note - would be a wee bit funny if Queens Park stick it up them next season as well.

Should the BBC giving prime airtime, and the leading story on their Scottish football sport page, to a racist to come on and "clear his name" with a completely half arsed apology that was more like a self promotion to tell people how good a coach he is, be worthy of a place in here?

Felt very off centre considering the current atmosphere in football as a whole.

Scottish 'Sportswriters' nominating a guy who has only started four games this season for Young Player of the Year shows their total ignorance of Scottish Football

Patterson's started eight games this season IIRC - 3x Europa League, 3x Premiership, 2x Scottish Cup. Played 14 games all in, a total of 862 minutes.

It's not enough to get him YPOTY, and he shouldn't be on the shortlist, but it's not like he hasn't played a game of football either.

It's a two horse race between Doig and Turnbull for the award.

Is this award only open to players in the Premiership? Just wonder if there is an equivalent or the scope could be widened to take into account young players tearing up the lower leagues like Scott Allan*.

*Before anyone says anything one of the BBC Sportscene pundits said Allan was one of the best young players in Scotland. Forget her name though.

It’s a good question, I don’t know if it’s just Premiership players. I also don’t know if the writers are supposed to take into account performances outside the league competitions - I assume they are since Clarke got a nomination for manager. 

Wonder if there will be some consideration given to having a Best Young Scottish Player award that includes non-Scottish based players too. They might think about it as the game continues to globalise and English teams continue to sign the best young Scottish players.

do Dundee still have the casting vote?

Aye, but by the time it's sent in they're on to the next motion. See the source image

I'm pretty certain a lot of other countries do this.

On Petrie's Montrose, they were one of the best drilled teams I've ever watched, very reminiscent of Steve Clarke's Killie. They might miss out on promotion again, but I've got a feeling Petrie will be a Premiership manager at some point in the next few years if he decides to give it a go full-time.

 

This is maybe for another thread but I said it at the time Ross County were in the market for a new manager after Kettlewell, former player Petrie should be given top consideration, along with his former County back team, Iain Campbell & Tony Bullock.  Instead we ended up with John yogi Hughes ffs! Thankfully, we only gave JH a contract to the end of this season so we will hopefully empty him and go back to Stewart Petrie in the summer.

I'm getting a bit fed up of players refusing to rule things out. 

I wouldn't refuse to rule out players refusing to rule things out.

Just heard an English commentator say "Brendan Rodgers becomes the first manager to win both the FA and Scottish Cups.."

I remember a certain red nosed chap from Govan winning both trophies. Aw not pwoud, not pwoud at all...
