I still think I would like to see Hammell be assistant to whomever we appoint.  Assuming of course it is NOT Hammell himself that is appointed.

Quite enjoying you clarifying that you dont expect Hammell to be appointed assistant manager to himself haha

i am fucking ragin' for Lasley.

He'd have walked into the job this time. Given it was stated he was being groomed and was too inexperienced despite interviewing well the last twice what a kick in the baws.

You'll never get experience if you're never given a chance.  Multiple clubs, way way bigger than Motherwell, give folk their first chance at management and there's loads of them who make a success of it.

I've got a good feeling about this.

I adore Stevie Hammell but it's hard to argue this isn't a cheap/lazy option.

Best of luck to him, obviously. 

Perhaps the other candidates were not up to much and the Board thought they like what Stevie is doing / saying. I am sure if there was a better option we would have gone down that road. 

Maybe we are not that attractive an option 🤷‍♂️

I'm with Desp, tbqhwy.

Easy to pitch it as a risk, or lazy, but with the context of the nick of the place at the moment, whats required and what's expected, Hammell is a good choice for me.

Is his lack of managerial experience a risk? Yes.

Do I think there was some kind of top tier candidate applying? No.

Is Simo a similarly huge risk? Yes.

Is some c**t that you've never heard of really able to come in, recruit and sort it before the window closes, which in reality is what is required right now? Probably not.

I'm into it, particularly the bit in the statement about a club wide plan for playing folk, that's class.

Every great manager started somewhere.

One thing I’m confident about he’ll have the whole team pulling in the same direction …. which will be nice for a change.

He is undoubtedly tuned in to the support. As for addressing the issues  with the squad he’ll have better knowledge on day one than anyone else.

Now give him as much money as we’ve got left and let him go shopping for defenders Flao.

Who was the last club hero appointment that worked out in Scottish football ?

Ally McCoist, IMO

All of our managerial appointments end in tears - it comes down to what happens in between.
