Next Scotland Manager

Recommended Posts

Surely he's not on 15k a week?!
I know, seems unlikely but Sportsound all but confirmed this was the case (English, Stewart and someone else, maybe miller all silently confirmed this)

If the SFA and Celtic/Rangers were both interested in a manager, what's the likelihood that the SFA would back off and give the big team first dibs.

If they were both interested in the same manager then Rangers and Celtic would be able to blow the SFA out of the water financially.

Aye, obviously; it just occurred to me that it would never be an issue as they'd back off sharpish rather than upset anybody important.

Wait, would The New Rangers still blow the SFA out of the water? They must be about broke by now, surely. Haven't been keeping track.

They get 50,000 people about 20/25 times a season, the SFA get it about 4 times if they're lucky.

Just noticed this from 3 hours ago: https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1126097/Steven-Gerrard-salary-wages-net-worth-earnings-Steven-Gerrard-Rangers-news

Headline: "Steven Gerrard salary: How much is Steven Gerrard paid? Net worth and earnings REVEALED"

Body text: Gerrard’s salary as manager of Rangers has not yet been revealed  :lol:

If Div could introduce one of his word filters for every time someone refers to "Scott" Gemmill, that would be lovely.
The man's name is Scotland Gemmill, people.
Agree but surely he's referred as Scot, not Scott; but should be Scotland. Just saying....

Clarke has been slashed to 1/6 with McInnes now at 11/4

So Clarke and McInnes have essentially just swapped odds? I get the impression that no one knows anything.

McInnes still favourite with William hill when I checked this morning.

Manager markets are pretty terrible for being very sensitive to folk placing money somewhere as opposed to the bookies being ITK. Usually not worth reading into unless it’s something ridiculous like caixinha suddenly becoming clear favourite for the rangers job etc.

Nobody betting on next manager markets has the first clue what’s going to happen. It’s entirely guesswork. It’s a ridiculous market which involves no skill whatsoever, and provides bookmakers with free money. The smallest bet makes a massive change in the betting. Clearly Derek McInnes was mentioned on Sportsound or something the other week, so some idiots (the kind who take their opinions from what Biscuits “Alan” Preston says about their team) put money on him.

They were largely dismissive of Scotland Gemmill, so his odds are drifting. Next week, he’ll get a mention again and will close.

Strange. It's almost as if the bookies odds are changing based on the amount of money being placed on each outcome, rather than the actual probability of either happening.

Can they just announce the racist and Gemmell already and give us all peace?

Bit harsh. Has kept his team riding almost as high as realistically possible domestically for 5 years. I think the national job might prove beyond his abilities though.

We clearly want someone with major Championship experience, and for some reason it "has to be" someone Scottish.

So I presume the SFA are just waiting until after the Women's World Cup to appoint Shelley Kerr.

Agreed that he's done a great job at Aberdeen, but the idea of appointing him as Scotland manager seems Levein-esque. There are definitely better Scottish candidates than McInnes.

Surely this week we'll hear something?

Clarke is up in front of the SFA either Wednesday or Thursday for his comments on Steven McLean, the outcome of that might give an indication.......
