I think he could do better. Aberdeen maybe? Or Hearts or Hibs. Surely one of them will be coming soon.

He's very much in the situation that McInnes was; successful in Scotland, initially did okay in England but the club's mess caught up with him. I think he'll still be highly rated.

Maybe Caldwell just has to convince them that he was unfairly treated by his last club. New board, budget slashed. Sacked when he was on the brink of League Cup glory. Sure he could make a case.

I never quite understood what he did to get the Sunderland job to be honest. he won the championship for St M, but that isn’t a huge achievement. Archie did more in his first few years, the Ross County guys won the championship at the first time of asking, Martin Canning arguably achieved more over a longer period. Strange how some managers are perceived

PowerPoint presentation swayed it perhaps?

It usually does die naturally, but becomes resurrected when someone posts on it, asking other people not to post on it, which usually ends up with people posting on it, then other people posting on it too.

Hope he's good at gardening.

Bet he's got all the kit, read all the books and thinks he can garden using his own ideas, but the place is currently an absolute mess!! Grass on the shed roof and plants growing in the trees but it'll all come right soon, he's still aiming for gold at this year's Chelsea garden show.

maybe he's given his tulips an envelope each and asked them to write down the other ten tulips they'd want beside them in the flower bed

I doubt GC has a future in football management, and it would be nice if someone took him aside and explained this.

I took him aside, he could have gave me the answer i wanted but decided to go with it his own way lol - Gary knows best lol

Well. At least Caldwell actually won some games after the January transfer window.

Just a shame he only ever won one league game before a January transfer window in his entire tenure at Thistle, losing 10 and drawing 3.

Point per game required this season to avoid relegation: >1

Points per game required this season to avoid play-offs: >1.1

Points per game acquired by Gary Caldwell 2019-20: 0.4

Points per game acquired by Ian McCall for Thistle in 2019-20: 1.14

Points per game acquired by Gary Caldwell in his entire Thistle tenure: 1.125

The best thing Gary Caldwell can say about himself in management is that he's mates with Scott McDonald.
