Thank christ Smith is gone,the first decent act the committee have done for a few seasons.The second decent act would be to get somebody with experience.

I feel for Smith.A decent guy but it’s a results business.I wish more fans would get behind the team instead of the criticism I heard on Saturday.The players hear and I am sure it affects them.I would like to see an experienced player manager but it’s going to be a tough find with the window closing at the end of the month.I would like to see the hardcore fans get behind the club at Coatbridge.The football club is one of the few positive things left in the City so we must all try our best to make sure we stay in this division.

Smith had experience at Dundee, Alloa, Aldershot, East Fife and the Rovers just wasn't a great manager although Brechin have been on the slide since the Championship season so not all down to him the rot was already there.

Thought this might happen after Saturday. Not nice to see anyone lose their job, but League Two sides have to be ruthless in this scenario now.

Sorry to here this but it was just not working out. Problem now is he signed all our players over summer so who ever comes in will have little or no scope to sign players

Seems a bit bizarre. Smith was extremely lucky to get a job after the shambles at Raith, but you should have punted him when it was confirmed you were relegated rather than waiting 3 games into a new season when it looks like he's not been backed financially. Instead he's now assembled a squad that a new guy will have to run with after Smith clearly wasn't backed due to having to play himself and name himself on the bench.

Based on your lack of options, you'd be better served with a player manager now IMO. You'll probably try and go for someone like Gary Naysmith - or you might even give Jim McIntyre his last chance like you did with Smith. Canning would be a decent shout

Barry is a good, honest guy and did well at Dundee and East Fife, but possibly made the wrong choice to take over at teams on the decline. Sadly football is a cruel game and the "results driven business" term is more than a cliche when it comes to clubs struggling to meet the often unrealistic aspirations of supporters with the resources available...

Just a reminder that the Shire play at Falkirk Stadium and not Ochilview for next season.

And a wee reminder to yourself chum ....If we are relegated from League 2 we would drop into the Highland League .  " THE SHIRE " are in the Lowland League . Sorted that for you now off you pop back to the bedsit surrounded by all the old posters on your 4 walls out of "SHOOT " magazine . Thanks for taking part though .  It was truly a delight for us  that you chose to share your vast  football knowledge with the GANG .

I said this the last time as well. I love the guy but there is no way Charlie King should be considered.

And Stevie Campbell should be gone as well. He has been part of the last two management teams who have been failures.

^^^^^^ agree Steve Campbell should go  NOW .  Love King but wouldnt want him near it if it went tits up . Need experienced head in charge .  Caretaker wise Shagger , Hill and / or McCord  could hold the fort until we take a breath and find the right man

No chance that will happen.Its a pity Naysmith took a job as Loans Manager for Hearts as he would be ideal and knows the lower league's well.

Definitely needed before it's too late.  Brechin need to stop the free fall into the HL.

Naysmith who almost managed to relegate a full time team from the Championship despite having a 40 goal striker! And that's the issue with people wanting an experienced manager. If you're a decent experienced manager you almost certainly don't want the Brechin job. Part time clubs IMO are invariably better going for somebody who they see as having potential, rather than managers who have failed previously. People like Barry Smith. There are exceptions of course, but at our level 'experienced' managers can tend to be shite.

Well lest some thing has been done before it's too late. Bit who do we get in ? Give it to stevie full time ? Or maybe shagger ? I know I always say this but Charlie king ? ?

Think we are needing someone with experience and not a rookie to get us out the mess we are currently in, but as has been said, there isn't much going about. This appointment absolutely has to be the right one
