Herd is a cert. Believe the Rose not  inviting applications.

He's been at two recent games at Prestonfield, including yesterday.

Tin pot football club another manager loses his job after a season and a bit He’s trying to build a team after the last manager lost his job Herd will get the job and will get sacked 16 months later 

So you think being 11 points behind after 7 games is an acceptable start bearing in mind the games rhe Rose have played so far.

Early in the season plenty time to pull it back ,Do you think a good manager would take that job knowing he’s got limited time to turn it around and it’s not his squad

Linlithgow Rose will still be an attractive job to a lot of decent managers.

The Rose still have to play 7 of the current top 10 so would be surprised if Ferguson turned things around. He seemed to be very negative away from home.

What games have you watched?

It's a pretty good squad and IMO almost everything that's gone wrong has been tactical. Against a team that's still bottom of the league we were effectively 4-6-0 for stretches and it unsurprisingly finished 0-0, for their only point so far. That's emblematic of Ferguson's approach.

On the basis of the 5 games I've seen this season plus the games online last season I didn't have confidence that he would pull it back. He didn't seem to realise the problem. The advantage of making a change now is that the position is still recoverable; in a few weeks time it probably wouldn't have been.

I think potential managers will look at that squad, watch highlights from the Haws and Spartans games and be licking their chops. If they're worried that only taking 10 points from 7 games, 6 of which were eminently winnable, will put their jaiket on the proverbial shoogly peg, then this isn't the club for them.

**  Brown Ferguson leaves Linlithgow Rose **

The Club is disappointed to announce that manager Brown Ferguson and his coaching staff of Steve Kerrigan and Myles Hogarth have been relieved of their duties and leave with immediate effect.

We would like to place on record a sincere thank you to Brown, Steve & Myles for their dedication and commitment throughout a very challenging period, particularly off the pitch and wish them all the very best for the future.

The process to appoint a new manager is underway and we will provide appropriate updates as and when we can as that process progresses.

First team coach, Craig Donaldson, has agreed to run the team on a caretaker basis commencing with tomorrow evening’s home fixture against Musselburgh Athletic F.C.

I don’t get that quote. If the club is disappointed at getting rid of the management team, why did they sack them in the first place? 

I do wonder about Linlithgow as a club.  A couple of seasons ago, management team were unceremoniously ditch after a hurriedly arranged committee meeting, minutes after they were thrashed 6-2 by Musselburgh Ath. Yet, had they won that match they would/could have been sitting at the top of the league. 

The time of being ‘World Beaters’ in the East of Scotland (previously Juniors Super League) has well and truly disappeared for Linlithgow, but their committee still think otherwise.

The appointment of BF was one that appeased all. Unfortunately his style of play wasn't great and didn't always bring out our strengths.

I do agree with you that we have to many living on past glories.  Thankfully we also have enough who realise the challenges ahead.

Whoever gets the role has a good nucleus to work with. Something we didn't have in recent times.

I've only watched your highlights but your defence is garbage and should give shawsy the goalie Jersey. Yous need to go 4-3-3 with stowe and docherty wide on the 3. Your boys are saying coynes not got 90 mins in him regularly so you need to replace him

At least they didn't copy and paste another clubs statement just changing the name...

I agree with your post in terms of their 'status' truth is that so many teams are inspired coming to Prestonfield and many of the new teams don't carry the fear factor that a few of the big teams did.

Commenting without knowing anything else that may have happened, it is the latest in a long line of managers who were or had a good record going there, were in the middle of a rebuild and have been unceremoniously dumped.

Danny Smith returning yesterday would clearly have made 1 or 2 in that committee wish he was still there. 

Smith or Herd for me if it hasn't already been decided

Can't see Danny going back at the moment. Herdy the favourite

I think everyone’s disappointed as BF was very likeable and had a bit of class about him. We just weren’t doing it consistently.

His tactics make for a good cup team but we need a winner that can take us to challenging this league. Tranent and Penicuik are showing the way and there’s still time to chip away at that.

Would be happy with Danny or Herdy. Both won silverware at this level already.
