You in general are the most raging person on here by distance. You can tell how upset and rattled you get over the comments on here. Save yourself the hassle and don’t bother.

I don’t have glasses.

Yet posters claim I don’t get it or don’t care, which is it? 🤷🏻‍♂️
 

At least the specs might give you an excuse for being an adult fanboy virgin

Could be in serious trouble by the end of October. 

Certainly need to start looking for a contingency plan in case we're in a relegation battle at Xmas. 

The GWT will be in and Samuels arse won't even touch the pan.

I agree that a relegation battle could well be on the cards based on the results but I can't see Glass being sacked.

Yeah possibly, depends how bad it was. If it was naive as what we're watching then I'd have my doubts. 

But the difference is that an experienced manager is likely to have a track record from somewhere to give people hope he might actually be able to turn it around. 

Like it or not, a rookie manager has to get off to a good start.  Our guy just keeps saying he's going to keep doing the same things and that everything is an easy fix with a bit more practice. 

But he's just starting to sound a bit stubborn and foolish. 

Do you think he made the right call bringing in an inexperienced backroom team? 

The backroom staff that Glass brought in are not inexperienced. Gunn and the new head of recruitment are in their roles though.

Russell, Brown and Henry aren't inexperienced? 

Which clubs have they coached at before? 

I know Russell has his coaching business and has trained a few individual players, had a gig with the English strikers for a short period. But has he been employed by a club full time as a coach before? 

Henry worked at Atlanta 2 for a wee while. What else has he done? 

Brown's first senior coaching gig?

I'd call that a pretty inexperienced backroom staff.

You'd like to think they wouldn't let it get that far and would nip it in the bud.

Aye nobody said it was gonna be a bed of roses, but likewise Cormack and Glass were talking about exciting signings and trophies in the cabinet.

They never mentioned anything about going on the clubs worst run  since Ebbe. And nor do I believe that this is part of the plan of transition. Cormack didn't expect this either. 

You're trying to rewrite the transition that was sold by the club and make out that this is a few bumps in the road. Deep down you know its bollocks as this is not a hurdle in the road, but is actually abject failure. 

The plan failed. Let's move on.

But if we had an experienced manager like Alex Neil, you would be ok giving him more time?

An experienced manager like Neil wouldn't have recruited anywhere near as badly as what Glass has done. Now there was for sure a big rebuild job on our hands and I'm not saying that Neil would have us up challenging at the top but on the other hand, he would certainly have us taking care of the likes of Coonty and St Mirren with the budget we made available to Glass. We'd be comfortable in about 5th place and with a system of play bedding in and looking forward with optimism to the rest of the season.

Right now there's absolutely nothing to be positive about

I know we won't do this but surely we should be looking at someone like Brian Rice as an assistant? Carved out his career as an assistant and then when he went to Hamilton his remit was all about developing youth. Yes they ended up relegated but they were due relegation for years. If purely just for that fucking abomination of a pitch.

Assistant to Yogi. They’ve worked together before. 
Good shout.

I’m just of the opinion that the hypocrisy on display is utterly hilarious. All this talk of not wanting a Scottish football old boy and giving a new young manager a season or so to get bedded in disappeared after about three games. Now people want the manager punted and shite like John Hughes or Neil Lennon in charge. It’s fucking depressing.

11th place? A bet? Why are you avoiding it?

Yeah that would've got the fans onside, telling them you're planning to be shite and go on a shite run.

I think at very best we’ll be 5th, and at worst 9th.

Could be famous last words, but I can’t see Ross County, Livi or Dundee amassing more points than us over a season.

Bottom line is you've got to get results whether you are a rookie or not. 

I'd suggest it's not a good idea to go on a nine match run without a win at any time in your managerial career.  There's not going to be many supporters of any club jumping with joy at a run like that. 

It's our worst run in eleven years and he had a relatively straightforward run of games to navigate in that period, Qarabag aside. 

Making blatant mistakes and being stubborn about defending them won't help him much either. 

He's got to get himself out of this quickly or he'll be sacrificed, regardless of how big a pal he is with Cormack. Glass will know this himself. 

And the only way he will do that is by picking up a few wins.

There's nothing wrong with Cormack wanting a new young manager in principle. But it has to be the right new young manager, and if that had been Glass then fair enough regardless of whether or not he was Dave's mate. 

But it's clear that Glass isn't up to it. So why continue down this path. 

But your attitude comes across as "Well fuck you all this is what you wanted, so we're all just gonna have to see this out to  the death".  But that's not necessary. 

Dave made a mistake. Why not fix it? Or would you destroy the club out of spite.

I'm guessing the reason they didn't say it, wasn't to keep the fans onside, but because they weren't planning on being shite.

What is the best way to get rid of a manager?

They say to turn on the chairman,

I think it's unlikely he will change things before next summer
