~The Sixth Sense~ Hamilton Academical 2019/2020 Thread

Recommended Posts

How a club as shit has Hamilton managed to avoid relegation is beyond rational explanation.
 
By finishing 10th or above or by winning the play- offs to keep so called big clubs in the Championship. Hope this helps.

Well let me explain then -

2014/2015 - finished 7th

2015/2016 - finished 10th

2016/2017 - finished 11th. Beat your mob 1-0 over 2 legs to stay up & keep you down.

2017/2018 - finished 10th

2018/2019 - finished 10th

Couple of questions:
- How much faith do you guys have in Rice for next season?
- Does anyone think Canning would've kept us up?

I do still have my doubts about Rice but I'm not sure if that's because it's not his own squad, and he's still pretty inexperienced as a manager so I'm willing to cut him some slack.

I don't think Canning would've picked up 19 points after the break and if he did, it wouldn't have been as entertaining as the fashion Rice usually managed it.

Sill unsure about Rice but give him the benefit of the doubt. He was astonished that the only midfielder we have that can pass the ball is 17 and weighs 7 stone.

I reckon we would have only got 5 or 6 points under Canning.

Nee signings are vital but cant be worse than Phillips, Smith, Penny, Bloomfield and Sam Kelly !

You can only really judge him properly until after next season,  providing he's allowed to bring in the players he thinks will fit into his style of play.  I doubt we'd have got over the line with Canning.  It just wasn't working out, with the majority of our players looking like they'd chucked it working under him this season.  Also, the majority of our fans were sick of Canning also and were crying out for him to go. The atmosphere around the club had turned a bit toxic. They've now brought in a manager who brings a different philosophy to his and wants to play a more adventurous attacking formation which it's much more easier on the eye.  We're not going to win every week as admittingly it can leave us a bit open at times when playing against the teams with much better players but I'd rather we take his approach  than Canning's boring snoozefest tactics.

A nice cheeky £1,250,000 in the bank as well. 

Any chance you could use some of that to have a football pitch at your stadium?

Heard on a podcast that you’ll have Kieran Anderson training with you this summer. Scored almost 50 goals for Camelon Juniors in the EoS League.
Aye was mentioned a few weeks back. Decent player at EOS level but nowhere near good enough for the step up to Premier League.Wouldnt be surprised if he went to Falkirk.

I had been saying for some time that Canning had taken us as far as he could. Football was crap fans turning against the club and a pretty toxic atmosphere. he had to go and should have went at end of December at the winter break. This would have given the new manager time to work with players for a few weeks and avoided the squeaky bum time at end of season.

 

Rice did well and apart from getting shafted by the blue half of bigot brothers our home form has been decent.

 

Rice now has a huge rebuild job to do, Imrie, Ziggy and Kilgannon away and a good few others will follow, mainly the dross that Canning signed. I like the idea of bringing in the youth BUT they need to have some experienced guys around to talk them through

Oakley v Livi came from a corner but the ball did bounce around a wee bit. 

Imrie v St Mirren came straight from a Keatings corner.

If we had kept Canning it would have been us down automatically and Dundee in the play off with St.Mirren safe.

McIntyre signed I think 10 players,Kearney six or seven and Rice one so the guy did a better job for me as he was still lumbered with Canning's dross and had to play some of them to help us over the line.

Looking forward to the summer and hopefully a few coming in with a decent pedigree rather than being proven correct about most Canning signed.
