He needs a good summer and a good start to next year in order to win back the trust of some supporters. Our problem has not been sacking managers too soon, it’s been not sacking them soon enough. Neilson is going to be given a few months of next season then the next person is going to be playing catch up with the players Neilson has signed. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it. We have no excuse for that as the past is very recent and we’ve already repeated it twice. Personally, I think you guys would be mad to sack Neilson. He took over in the October international break and you've accumulated 54 points from then which matches Ross County. He's signed a fair few players in January but that market is quite tough as you're invariably having to gamble on players who have issues and it was pretty clear that your squad needed something to even have the chance of going up.You guys got a lot of help even getting to penalties in the first place but the truth is that you were a few kicks away from the top flight. He's the first competent manager you've had since you've been down IMO. If he's got a full pre-season, I expect him to do much better in a summer market and have a squad that hits 70 points which no one else will get close to. Dundee will obviously be the second biggest wage bill in the league but the squad starts with zero and the new manager comes in and has to start recruitment from scratch so I would be pretty surprised if we even hit 60 points tbh. There's then no one else really obvious who looks like they could sustain a challenge with Inverness and Ayr losing key players and then Dunfermline cutting their cloth, maybe someone has a great summer. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
