Managerial Merry-Go-Round

Recommended Posts

Kevin Thomson will lead Kelty Hearts in their first season in the SPFL after he was named successor to former Rangers team-mate Barry Ferguson.

The 36-year-old leaves his role as a Rangers youth coach to take his first job as a manager at New Central Park.

With the appointments being announced the title of this thread has become very apt. I don't think there are many Pars fans that will be happy with that.

I agree .I would be happy. Manager of Alloa they get relegated from the championship now manager of Dunfermline and they hope, he will get them promoted out of the championship. I would not hold my breath.

What a bizarre appointment. Peter Grant must give a bloody good interview. Surely they'd have better options open to them than him? They'd be better off giving a chance to a first-timer (as Saints have done successfully several times now).

That's Dunfermline and Ross County both made what seem to be awful managerial appointments in the last few days.

Elaborate please.

Self explanatory. Whilst other teams employ known failures ,Saints either by luck or good judgement have given a chance to guys most of whom have no experience ,hence no failure and have mainly not failed at Saints.

He kept them up his sleeve in case nothing better came up.  Presumably something now has!

To be fair I think Celtic suspected that but had to go along with it as they had no other candidate.  Unless they can pull a surprise appointment of some standing Gerrard can look forward to a second league title.

Obviously self explanatory in your own mind,  however I thought you had names in mind , rather than a generalisation. 

Was hoping for names , which could have opened up a discussion. 

However , I'll leave it at that. :roll:

Rumours kicking about that Howe's family refused to come up to Glasgow after the recent events of petrol bomb attack and trouble in George Square... wouldnae blame them if there's truth in it

On another note CD getting quoted as 16/1 for the job ... was only a matter of time before his name was gonna get thrown in when "bigger" clubs are looking for managers

Rumour that talks with the latest Celtic managerial candidate are already in trouble.  He has been offered a bus pass as part of his salary package but he wants one for his wife as well.

Plus a biscuit tin of Walkers shortbread.

Italian Serie A managerial upheavals is mental.

Loads of teams changing managers. Conte goes after winning the title! Pirlo goes after getting Juve into CL on last day.

Roma, Napoli, Fiorentina, Sassuolo, Sampdoria(Ranieri) all changing. Probably more

Seems John Hughes had his eye on a job at Celtic when he turned down the offer of an extended Ross County contract, not Dundee Utd as reported on Sportsound.  Quoted as favourite to take on the Colts' team in the Lowland League.
