The Brechin City 2019/20 Thread

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

Smith was backed to be actually! Slow international clearances, a couple injured and one carrying over a ban led to him having to play a couple.

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. 
Did a good job at East Fife and won the league aswell.Never had the best of times at QOS,they have struggled with managers last 5 plus years.

The reality is, every experienced manager that’s appointed at this level has some kind of failure on their CV and has been sacked from somewhere. You only have to look at the current part time clubs Paul Hartley (Falkirk), Mark Roberts (Ayr United), Gary Bollan (Forfar), Jim Weir (Sacked a few times), Ian Murray (St Mirren), Jim Duffy (sacked more than Jim Weir), Jim McInally (Morton) and Danny Lennon (Alloa)

When we found ourselves in a similar position a few years back we appointed Dick who was seen as a safe pair of hands to sort out the mess out and looked at us now, I think Brechin should do something similar but not sure who is available and who would take it. Good luck anyway, hope you get the right guy.

The reality here is that Barry's recruitment has been pretty poor and all left pretty late which shows a real lack of preparation for a new season. He should have had some business tied up early doors and had other potential targets addressed before the season ended. The last 2 managers have been experienced and look at what has happened. 

Lets be honest here, we are never going to get relegated so why not give a younger manager a chance to progress new ideas into the squad, a new vision and work towards progression for this season and next. Yes, a difficult time for the club but we are only 3 games in. The team is so low in confidence it's unreal, stevie c should also go

Its the only consistency that they have had recently!

Bit of an arrogant statement for him to make maybe thinks a white knight is going to ride in a Massey Ferguson to save the day.

I'm sure I heard a Berwick fan say that last season.

Sorry to disappoint you but Barry resigned .  He did the decent thing . 

Mutual agreement it says - most football resignations nowadays involve manager choosing between being sacked or resigning - get's the same pay off as it suits everyone for him to resign.

The current squad that is there is more than enough to get up the league. 32 goals conceded so far after 10 games says it all and lack of fire power. A fresh face with different ideas and training methods may inject some life into the lads. A different attacking formation should be at the forefront and am sure a few gems are kicking about the east of Scotland/junior leagues which may benefit in the short term. 

 

The lack of strategy and shape during games games has been embarrassing and that’s nothing training can’t sort out with the right coaching. I fully believe with the correct appointment they will shoot up to mid table over the next few months.

Pathetic to be on football forums looking for bites.

This is a serious platform.
