I admire the boy for naming himself after one of the Raith's managers. Although i feel i must point out that the stupid f**k couldn't even get that right.

Yeah that's how I picture your reaction.

That would be my reaction, McGlynn is worse than McPake.

I don't disagree, which makes him more of a favourite to get the gig.

Nelms is some boi.

That was more effective than anything Numan could sell.

Lads, it's time to buy in. Buy into a manager together for the first time since we all bought into Barry Smith in the Defiant season.

We're away to McPake the f**k out of the Championship next season:

I'd be happy with McPake and someone experienced beside him.

How anyone can slag or slate the appointment of James McPake, with Andy O'Boyle as first team coach, Jimmy Nicholl as assistant and Gordon Strachan as overseer beats me. That's a massive coup for a side heading into the second tier of Scottish football. 

I'm delighted with it!

Think you're making things up there Spud. I was accepting of him at the time because of some of the other names linked but I wasn't 'screaming' for him at all.

No idea what you're trying to get at tbh considering you want the joke figure at Kashmir!

Does strachan do anything other than perform his duties as professional wedge reciever?

What is it Strachan is supposed to do MvOnDo?

The context of the posts are important. The first post is after it'd leaked he got the job. The final three for the job were Jim Goodwin (Who you'd note was my preference if it was just one on their own when you go through my posts), James McPake (With Strachan, Nicholl & O'Boyle being his backroom team) or Kenny Miller.

I would still be delighted with McPake having been picked with that complete backroom set-up as was mooted. Andy O'Boyle is now the Head of Elite Development in the Premier League down South, Strachan was originally mooted as having more involvement and well, the idea of Jimmy Nicholl supporting McPake was absolutely 'delightful' if the alternative was Kenny Miller. That backroom team fully supporting a rookie manager would still be a coup!

As you'll note from my posts at the time - At not one point was I screaming for him to be signed - No matter how you to try frame it.

Why?  Even if he did have the skills to develop into a good manager (which IMHO he doesn’t) he would still have had to learn on the job.  We needed a manager with experience to get us out the Championship.  Simple as that.

For clarity I have never met Da Bomb, never spoken to him on the phone or had any communication with him, electronically or otherwise.

Jimmy Nicholl as assistant was a much better idea on paper than it turned out to be. I originally thought Strachan would be more hands on. And Andy O'Boyle would have been a massive coup on his own not only for his coaching reputation but also for the contacts we'd have been able to tap into.

I thought at the time that a successful team built around McPake would have been better than Goodwin on his own or Kenny Miller. Goodwin was by far the best option if it were just on his own but as he's proving at St Mirren, I don't think we'd have been a 100x better than we are now if we had him.

The manager I wanted last time round was Weighorst or Duffy (And I said at the time I expected to be slated for that shout) IIRC.

At least he was justified a job in some way working with NI, Rangers and St Mirren relatively recently whilst Mackay come in off the back of coaching St Johnstone's 20s and then that spell part-time managing Stirling. Nicholl may have been competent and playing a part but there's only so much that could do if the manager is so much out of his depth. Inclined to think he was good at his job for what it's worth but that's a guess, we had some horror shows last season but we never had a 5 game run as bad as this.

The O'Boyle and Strachan stuff was pretty disingenuous from McPake and the club, they knew what they were doing and were careful in the language they used knowing that it would create a misleading narrative.

Who would want to take on the wee team in Dundee? Its only a matter of time before admin 3 (It was never our fault)

Sad thing is , you may be correct. But then again who knows. I didnt expect to fly back from Perugia and find out we were 24 million in debt
