Rebuilding the Team

I think Hunter, primarily being a fan like all of us, was able to see what the majority of us saw regarding how McInnes had us playing. Was eye bleeding at the end and he was devoid of ideas. He was found wanting.

Yeah. And sounds like Hunter had McInnes’ card marked very early on. Might have helped if he’d printed something at the time, to be fair, given he wrote a column for the EE but we all know how that rag operates.

Not rocket science but McInnes is almost a microcosm of how the Weegia operate. Looking after each other. Ironically (or maybe not in actual fact) similar to the Masonic society.

Cant help thinking we’ve missed a massive opportunity, in finally binning McInnes and then appointing Glass but time will tell.

I can't get my head around this defence that has been put together for the season. It's lacking so much quality and depth it's scary. 

Considine - Don't like speaking bad of the lad but getting on a bit now and may not have the same quality.

Gallagher - Good signing, solid.

Gurr - Who the fuck even is he, played 36 competitive games and h's 25.....

Devlin - Pointless even discussing his quality's he'll be injured by September. Cannot understand why he has a new deal, shocking.

Ramsay - Seems a great prospect, 17 years old we can't be relying on him 

Mackenzie- Another young lad, 21,  but should be starting to cement his place in the team

 

Shambles man. Midfield and attacking positions pretty well covered, few dinosaurs in Mcginn and Hayes but still got the quality. 

Tough season ahead unless we sort out that defence.

This is the main worry for me. He cannot seriously think that defence is going to be fine until at least January? I know Gurr is an unknown, he could be amazing but his stats are not exactly a glowing endorsement.

The only thing I’d take you up on…

Devlin won’t be “injured by September”. 

For the simple reason the cunt won’t be fit by then.

Considine - As a left sided centre half, he’ll be decent enough. He showed not long ago for Scotland he had the quality to do a decent job. Probably not able to be the LWB role he was played in at times, but not likely to be there in Glass’s formation. Think he’ll be fine till the winter window at least. McCrorie whom you’ve not mentioned I would not be surprised if he grew into a role alongside Gallagher.

Ramsay - were not relying on him, he is the 2nd / 3rd choice cover for RB and will get occasional opportunities.

McKenzie - should be starting as our left back of choice. Adequate cover with Hayes able to slot in there if needed.

 

The risk in defence is CH cover. We go into the match tomorrow without any recognised cover with Gallagher suspended. Sure he’ll be back for next week, but a signal that we will be stretched if we do pick up injuries / suspensions as we inevitably will do so. We can’t rely on Devlin. It’s why I think we will move nearer the end of the window (unless there is a youngster that could step in and cover)

That's pretty much my take on it although I think he'd have got a bit longer than 12 months (but not too much longer).

Plus he could get away with not winning with us. There was no expectation in the press to do so, never mind our own fucking board. So his future career prospects weren't harmed by regularly finishing second in the league and cups. 

At sevco, not winning a trophy (even though at that point they were still well behind Celtic budget wise) would certainly seen  him labelled as a loser. I think he'd have gotten 18 months to 2 years and if he hadn't delivered at least one trophy in that timescale he would have been bulleted. And his dream of once again managing at a decent level down south lying in tatters. Although as it turned out, staying 2 years too long with us has pretty much achieved the same result anyway.

Did Gerrard not just finally win a trophy last season?

He got 3 years

How long did they give Caixinha who took the permanent job on that McInnes would have had?

He's always done well managing in Mexico.

As I said, I think McInnes would have been given 18 months to 2 years. At that point, sevco were still operating on a relative shoestring compared to Celtic so I really cannot believe that DM would have won them a trophy. 

That they started to make inroads on Celtic and eventually overtake them under Gerrard I still think was more down to Celtic appointing Lennon on the cheap, who truly is a buffoon., rather than any great genius on Gerrard's part

Proofs in the pudding, how many clubs have came in for Gerrard ?, after winning his first title, doing well in Europe?

nobody, not one team.

Seemed okay, swore a lot, but had some fairly obvious incorrect memories of the Dons.

All over the place on dates and events.

Particularly the Derek Hamilton bit.

Don’t mind Hunter but he does go on a bit and tends to just go off on tangents. Overall it was a good podcast though and enjoyed it, the 3 lads seem to speak a fair bit of sense, they will need to cut it down a bit of doing it every week as 3 hours was a long listen.

I see Tyler Mykyta and Kevin Hanratty have been shipped out to Formatine on loan.

Maybe not ready yet to push on into the first team, but will be a good experience for them and also free up a space in the squad to take in another player

Sadly have to agree with this, albeit you can’t downplay Gerard/Beale’s role completely.

The door was left ajar (personally I feel deliberately) and they cantered through it.

I thought he got the Derek Hamilton Hun game timeframe correct - 78 was it not? 3-2 victory?

What a game that was, 2 late goals to send them fucking cunts homewards, to stink again.

Aye he's on the bench. Just got the bad news that I've been left out despite us naming 12 subs tonight.

Ah ok. So John Greig got sent off in 78 but this was a different game. 

Whatever happened to Derek Hamilton? Seemed to disappear soon after the league title triumph in 1980.

Stayed with us until 1983!! Only played 34 matches for us in 5 years but joined St Mirren and stayed 6 years there, was in their SC winning side in '87

I was saying a couple of times on here this summer it would be great if Glass could bring even one of Ojo, McGeouch, McLennan and Kennedy back to life. Those four being the four I deemed to be the deadwood in the squad (i'll not mention Devlin as he's not registered yet).

I'm not counting any chickens but it doesn't look like we'll be paying Ojo up his contract (or subsidising a loan for McLennan) in the next couple of weeks anyway.
