Looks like McGhee hasn't got it. About to cry.

 

Seems certain it is Burley.

That means Burley will be back at tynie in his role as national coach at some point fairly soon , that could be quite interesting :)

Great news. Think all you need to run the national team is a good rapport with the players and a little tactical nous, both of which Burley's got in abundance. We'll soon find out if the rumours about his lifestyle are actually true...

I hope he gets it!

 

i also hope he comes to one of our games to watch some players and does the half time draw so we can show our appreciation for what he did in his all too short time here!

Are you sure? As I mentioned a couple of weeks back, Micky Adams left Colchester: I can see him beating Davies to it, to be honest.

It's not that I don't think he'll be able to do it.

 

I think he'll miss the day to day involvement club football brings.

Fair enough!

 

I actually think he will be pretty decent, he has always struck me as getting the best out of average players. Ipswich being a prime example.

I agree if he does well and a big club comes in for him i can see him jumping ship.

I agree.

 

I'm just not convinced he would have went for it had he been at another club.

 

A lot of politics at Southampton this season, He could be using this as a stepping stone ala Mcleish.

 

We'll see.

Burley will use this as a stepping stone to come back to Hearts like Smith.

George Burley. Wouldn't have been pleased had it been one of the other candidates. Certainly not Souness or Burns.

 

Frail to manage Hearts till May and Mark McGhee to be Hearts boss then for me please. Doubt it but would be nice.

If the SFA haven't put some sort of condition in place that means he is charge for the long term then they really are an absolute joke.

That will make him excatly the same as Smith and McLeish then.

 

To be honest, I don't think you can look to far ahead, will he jump ship. The guy has to be doing well for it to happen, deal with it does, however, if he is the best man for the job appoint him. No need to over complicate the appointment for me. That goes for Hearts also.

 

Think he'll be a good appointment. Been about a bit, seems to know how to motivate players and I think in someways that's the most important thing at international level.

 

The players are generally the best the country has to offer so getting them motivated and up for it, is the main thing. Whilst tactically he seems sound.

 

Decent appointment, better than the Burns or Souness option for me. Whilst, he has achieved more in managerial terms that a McGhee.

 

Would imagine he will jump at it due to the situation at Southampton at the moment.

Would rather have seen Souness get it due to the fact he woulds have had no transfer kitty to screw up. Just pick the best available players. No ifs ands or buts.

Burley second best to McGhee. If McGhee had agreed to leave Well right away he'd have got it, no doubt. Burley probably glad to leave the sinking ship SS Southampton.

 

Keep the hospitality room well locked up.

Excellent news. Best manager I witnessed at Tynie.

 

Good luck George. It is a distant memory the good times you brought to us!

Best of luck to George if he takes the job. He was able to influence the team and change tactics during a game when he was with us and he's had all sorts of behind the scenes nonsense going on at Southampton.

 

I do hope the SFA have done their homework on this though i.e. I doubt he'll move his family home and I have heard scurrilous stories that his fondness for a drink or 2 has got even more pronounced in the last 2 years.

Don't think it is all that great an appointment, i feel he has only gone for it because his butt was half way out the door at Southampton. Would rather have McGhee as i feel he would be willing to put more hours into the job and would be more likely to play on form non OF SPL players, i feel with Burley we will see more mediocre Championship players with Scottish grannies.

 

Best of luck to him though.

Watched an interview on Sky when I got home from Motherwell with McGhee and he did not know that he had not got the job from the SFA it was Sky who told him, typical of them.

 

The interviewer was trying to get him to slag the SFA but he said that it was probably an agent that had told them and he had been tied up preparing for the game tonight etc, just generally making excuses for their ineptitude.

 

That is so that once they find George ****ed out of his brain some day they can go back and get Mcghee.

First manager since Andy Roxburgh not to have an Old Firm background (Vogts had Burns explaining the need to play Celtic and Rangers reserves from the minute he walked through the door). Will be good to have someone coming in with a fresh eye who is likely to judge players purely on talent and not be taken in by any half-season wonder that gets a handful of starts at Parkhead or Ibrox.
