We're not sacking him are we? 😂

Nah would have happened. Looks like he's getting Wednesdays game now and Id imagine the weekends as well. 

Feel for him, but cant see any way he turns this around. The lack of heart from the players since Alkmaar has been shocking.

After the league cup game in Livingston just like when he was sacked at Hibernian right after making the league cup final then a loss in Livingston.

What is your problem @ArabFC The lad asked what the rumours are, he was told what they are. Obviously have another one of these posters that doesn't like other opinions or folk to answer what rumours are.

 

You're correct. My 'problem' is rumours in general.

Why circulate stuff you know in all likelihood is crap? Maybe you made it up yourself. I don't know.

How many people on this thread posted Ross was gone in the last 24hrs? Did they know? Nope. They just  went for a 50/50 in the hope of being seen as 'itk'. A rumour is born.

Opinions on the other hand are great. Crack on.

My opinion is that we should stick with him for now, and I get red-dotted to shit for it because I'm defo in the minority on that one! Do I care? No. It's actually quite illustrative.

As an outsider looking in, I was amazed by the lack of fight more than anything else. The one booking was an accidental clash. Not one hard challenge put in all day. Changing the manager won’t change that attitude. 

Yes it would

Who'd have thought a dressing room containing Tony Watt would develop problems? 

Watt and Mulgrew supposedly not liking Ross.  Surely a fight between the three of them over who gets to look in the mirror first each day at training?

Looks like Ross is going to survive the day.

Good to see the club setting standards. Wonder how many it would've taken for an immediate dismissal.. 12? 20?

I’m sure time will tell.

Thank you.

I don’t think any Arab should be red dotting another Arab for expressing an opinion on whether or not we should keep/sack a manager.  Arsehole behaviour if they are.

Am I right in saying that's basically the same defence they had in the Championship?  Minus that big bald lump who's name escapes me.  Combine that with probably the worst manager in the league in Jack Ross, and you're in trouble.

No. Different goalkeeper, 2 different cenntre halves and a different left back. The right back is the same as the Championship winning side.

But the right back from the Championship shouldn't be getting a game over Freeman who's a far better option. All imo of course.

Using the like or dislike feature of the forum to indicate dislike of a comment = arsehole behaviour?

All about opinions I guess 🤪

I hadn't commented until then. As said a poster ASKED what the rumours were, I told him what the rumours are. I also said it may be shite.

Knock yourself out, crack on red dotting rather than speaking about it. At least you have written a reply rather than a childish "I don't like that " red dot.

You possibly are in the minority, but this is a forum if no-one posts rumours the whole fecking  site near falls on its arse.

Have you not been one of the posters talking about how crap and a total liability Eriksson was even though you hadn't seen him play and were basing it on rumours that you may or may not have made up to be ITK? If not then sorry I may have you mixed up with another poster.

Most of the posts in the last 24 hours saying Ross was gone were other clubs fans posting links to him leaving Sunderland and Hibs.

My take on it is that there is a player led revolt over something or other at the club, that is clear for all to see as they are not playing for him and he looks shell shocked. In this there is usually only one loser which is the manager. If he goes though the players undermining him win. Although I'd be happy to chip in a few quid along with a few others to get shot of half the squad no matter how talented, or how well they did last year. The attitude shown by the majority of the playing staff is piss poor, out of order and basically sticking two fingers up at the fans who effectively pay for their lifestyles. There are a few exceptions, but not many.

The.only other explanation is Jack Ross is shite and needs to go before we potentially find ourselves any further adrift at the bottom of the league.

Do I think he is completely shite? No I don't BUT he has made mistakes and still hasn't been able to kick the slow, one-paced, directionless, no shots, no creativity pish football we've been served up when not chucking it ( AZ at home excluded). He has said though that that is not what he wants, so is that on the players? The players though are weak, timid, responsibility dodging cowards and something needs to change sooner rather than later or we could be set with a loser mentality for the season and in big trouble.

Quite agree, but one thing in Smith's defence he is the only one who appears visibly angered and annoyed by what is happening and seems to be letting team mates know it. The rest jusut head down shuffle about staring at the ground.

Yeah if you’ve got a different opinion then state that opinion.  Anyway you’re obviously a sad individual so I’ll simply stop responding to you.

I mean it would generally take more in life for me to deduce someone is a 'sad individual' other than them simply utilising the 'like' or 'dislike' function to indicate their 'like' or 'dislike' for a post on a football forum, but whatever works for ya! 😂
