You probably just try and get some temporary continuity and re-evaluate things in the Summer, surely?

You won't be near relegation regardless, so (presumably) giving Aberdeen some compensation for a player with zero managerial experience and almost no sideline coaching experience to be your new manager on (presumably) a multi-year deal (why else would he bother?) seems a fair old risk to be taking when you could just muddle for a while copying what Goodwins been doing and seeing if any interesting managers apply/show interest over the next few months.

Either that or you chuck your money at trying to get McInnes.

I'd be on board with that but that would probably be wholly depending on what league Killie are in come the end of the season.

Seriously have you not got a bird to shag 

Well shes about 7 months pregnant just now so I'm probably best not too at this stage, tbh.

Would it be a shock if he had a release clause in his deal allowing him to leave for a top flight club while they remain out of it? He'd likely jump at the chance too. Better team in a higher tier in a better position.

I mean it's all one everybody wanting Jack Ross back but what if he's not in the least bit interested?

What if no-one who truly fits the bill is interested and you're left with Jim McIntyre, James McPake, Stephen Glass and Kevin Thomson to pick from?

You going with one of them, or you thinking 'f**k it' and taking the risk on Brown?

Rumours flying around JR has knocked us back already 😂. Who knows what to believe now, all sorts of rumours have been going around all week. 

As for Brown, I'd just rather it was someone with a bit of know how and experience who has had a bit of success in this league. Even if it meant poaching McInnes off Killie. We are on the cusp of a really really good season,  3 or 4 defeats on the bounce because an inexperienced manager is cutting his teeth wouldn't go down well and we'd all go into panic mode if the bottom 2 closed the gap. That's not to say an experienced guy won't lose the first 3 games either. I find the shouts for McGarry nearly as bizarre tbh.

Congrats RG. Plenty more XG on the way for you then (expected gagging with shitey nappies)

Why is this unacceptable? Its not like we're trying to sign a sex offender.

Any mention of folk not wanting Brown because of who he is, is just totally misguided.  I don't think I've ever heard too many bad things about the guy aside from on the park. 

He's generally quite well thought of off the field isn't he?

It's the inexperience mate never been a manager.  Can he hold the respect of the dressing room  never mind the fans. It's a huge gamble do you think this experiment is worth it?   If so I'm surprised.

No it’s probably not a wise move. The boardroom is rumoured to be a shambles tho so I am not surprised.

A untried manager is the bottom line for me. Go to YouTube listen to his interview's  does that inspire the dressing room that's my number one concern.  If Goodwin is taken the many of our back room staff we should be ( extremely  ) worried.

Will it make a difference.  For me it's about experience  nothing else. Huge gamble. 

Kevin Thomson isn’t happening so go to sleep mate. 

He had a bigger budget than Brooks at Gretna ffs.

I've been very impressed by names St. Mirren had linked with so far; Think you well may come out of this much stronger. Paul Lambert, Derek Adams, people with actual experience and decent success in past. Contacts they have will be extensive.

If went for Scott Brown, he would be determined to succeed, I think there is a manager there. I know not popular as a player, but as a manager I would not bet against him being really good.

Again, will have well handy contacts. Can see him to better if fiocuses on manager only, rather than player/manager though. 

All better than Ross IMO;

Surely the Brown stuff is just paper talk, the Record just desperate for an Old Firm angle. 

The reason I wouldn't want him is a lack of experience. Nothing to do with him as a person, the guy is a winner, he's very hard working, will have good contacts in the game. Now, none of that means he'd necessarily be a good manager, but he's not someone I'd be protesting against. 

I reckon it's all moot anyway. I will be astounded if Scott Brown is our next manager.
