Yep. Wants no more to do with it, supposedly wants out of football altogether but we can't afford his asking price (thanks DFCSS).

Bennett is still listed as a director at United

Do you think McInnes went from Saints to Aberdeen?

Aye forgot he flopped a Bristol.

Calderwood is the only one I can think of then. Derek Adams when he went back to County.

So United need third party funding to get T.W.If that is the case they can't be in a position to offer him the budget required to replace wee Jackies misfits !

Or maybe the third party doesn't want money to be taken out of the transfer kitty so he has offered funds.

For all the talk of lack of subsequent success for managers who move jobs within the Premiership, it's sobering to note Saints have a solid record of managers turning down bigger jobs in the top league - and then utterly imploding.

  • Back in the 1980s, Alex Rennie turned down a job at full-time St Mirren about six months before triumphantly leading us to successive relegations and the bottom of the senior football leagues.
  • And in 1999, Sandy Clark rejected overtures from Hearts just so he could finish the job of relegating us single-handedly.

Dont think Tommy is in that category of incompetence. Although, if he went to Utd and relegated them it would be a splendid variation on your theme.

You need Terrance Butcher for that level of trolling.

When was the last time a manager who moved between top flight clubs was successful? Cant think of one recently anyway.

That's not to say it wouldn't work but I would be just as happy happy with Mixu, or Irvine.

Craig Brown saved Aberdeen from certain relegation and signed McGinn, Hayes and Reynolds. That's about it. Quite good for a bumbling oaf.

What a peculiar irritation.

Is there a punchline to this peculiar patter?

On the subject of Fleetwood Town its possibly a bit surprising Graham Alexanders not been mentioned with this or the Motherwell job so far

Not convinced there would be any need for a poll tbh, Callum Davidsons been considered TWs successor since he was appointed his assistant
