    Who Will Replace Caldwell?

    If we can get IMc back its an absolute no brainer for me.. If we cant then i for one have absolutely no idea who we should be looking at.. All i can say is thank **** the old board is back because god knows how much time GC would have got under the previous one.

    Caldwell Sacked

    Got to disagree, someone who knows the Club is a big advantage and who also relates to the fans straightaway is huge . A Mcall/ Doolan partnership would be good , both know the League and the players, McCall is a coach we know who can improve players ( Shankland, Rose , Mcdaid etc ) and with the transfer window closed maybe McCall would help some of our players step up . If we’re looking longer term and utilising the Academy, I think Stephen Craigan is worth a shout , he helped bring players like Hastie , Cadden , Campbell , Turnbull etc through to the first team at Motherwell. Going back to Archie isn’t going to help us unless it’s just as an interim appointment until the “ takeover “happens , if it actually does .

    Annual Accounts....

    You get a reduced parachute payment in the 2nd year. We got £500k last year and £250k this as we finished 11th and County who finished below us got £300k, they would have got a further £125k if they, er, hadn't actually gone straight back up by not f*cking everything up like we did. Assume Caley would be similar in parachute money to County so only £125k last year.

    They were given a parachute payment but a year before us. They came down a year before us

    No previous baggage thanks - I don't think the cosy appointment of an ex-Jag should be considered - should be someone with no ties to the club & a proven track record. Whilst Caldwell has rightly been shown the door, the players need their collective arses booted up and down Firhill Road until they realise they have a job to do - it's been on the slide for nearly 3 years now & they should be punted/replaced in January if not up to the challenge.

    Any reason that you think they might?

    Annual Accounts....

    The question I would ask would be: Is our budget for this season now set at break even given the Celtic cup tie and the cost associated with a change in management?

    If I was eligible to ask just the one question at the AGM that question would be along the lines of "Can the Board guarantee that within the next 12 months the Club will not enter into any binding contract with Glasgow Warriors RUFC ". edited to add this is a question I would've asked weeks ago and bears no connection to posts elsewhere on this site.

    McCall also had to deal with what was at times a chaotic board. we nearly went into admin, partly through the money that had been lost through the Campbell and bone fiasco and he pushed for Dundee to give us more money for Harkins and Falkirk for Twaddle which prevented this. McCall was forced to work on a non existent budget that nearly prevented us from making any signings one season think we only signed Ian Flanagan because billy Allan paid for that player. McCall himself took a wage cut that season as well

    True, but almost every candidate mentioned has at least one dismal failure on their CV, and few can match Archibald’s achievements. Most St. Mirren fans, while conceding Lennon was treated harshly, don’t remember the brand of football played under him too fondly (and in a pre-playoff era he finished 11th at least once, maybe twice (Archibald’s lowest top division finish in 5 seasons). He did win a cup, but other than that I don’t see how his record is objectively better than Archibald. Those who talk about how exciting McNamarra’s team was must only have watched us at home. I recall so many dreadful and utterly tedious away games even in the Championship season (Hamilton, Falkirk, Airdrie, Dumbarton away yielded 1 point and one Thistle goal iirc). I’d be happy with McCall though. He didn’t achieve what Archibald managed, but inherited a far worse team. He’s also the only one mentioned who’s achieved anything of note in the last couple of years. So, Archibald or McCall for me, with a preference for the latter if only because he will be less divisive and will probably get more time and leeway from the fans if it doesn’t start going well immediately.

    McCall or Lennon for me - If we could get Strachan i would take him but i think that is outta our league and he is probably happy with his cosey number at Dundee

    It was Jackie Mac who started our season with a genuine 4-2-3-1. If anything Archibald shored us up and led us to a double figure league win. Would you be adverse to having McNamara back too?
