What's Jim Jefferies doing just now?

It's maybe clutching at Straws but I wouldn't be unhappy to see JJ and Bill Brown back on a short term contract to steady the ship until someone like Tommy Wright, Stephen Robinson or even Robbo  becomes available.

I don’t know the length of his contract but I can’t see compensation being a massive issue.

Last time we hired JJ, he went on a run of 15 games unbeaten then started losing and was hounded out the door as a "dinosaur" and "yesterday's man"

Levein is in the exact same position now.

I wouldn't say no, especially if he could find someone who has been places and done things to join him.

Can we maybe get someone new in? This place is obsessed with ex managers and players.

Short term place holder. JJ might be up for it.

True. Unfairly hounded out.

 

We did switch off in the last dozen games in the 10-11 season but before then had opened up a near 20 point gap in 3rd spot. 

 

How we’d take that now.

Doubt JJ would do it now.  (Which is obvious). 

 

Had two great spells which we’ll always remember and he’ll settle for that too.

He's a PHM and one of those who maybe just couldn't say no in our hour of need. Probably just wishful thinking. Even if it's just until the new year.

JJ was hounded out by Vlad not the fans!

 

By the way JJ is a winner who likes to play attacking football.

Levein on the other hand.......

Jim would come back in a nano second to fill the void until the end of the season.

Much more of a hearts legend and let’s not pretend leveins managerial cv contends with big jeff either because it doesn’t. 

 

There’s that glaring big hole in leveins cv of having never won feck all......

As a caretaker, I'd be happy.  Would be fascinating to see how well we would go.  Have to say though that if he pretty much had the full squad to pick from, it would make an unfair comparison with levein who hasn't had that luxury for a very long time now.

Not imo if he was in a caretaker capacity.  We'd just hope for a good permanent appointment asap.

Would be the perfect caretaker until the end of the season at the latest. Everything always seems right with the world when JJ is in the dugout. I remember the relief I felt when Romanov finally appointed him and it's no coincidence that we won something and reached another final shortly afterwards even if he wasn't there anymore.

I wouldn't want him in as manager, however, he'd my choice to replace Levein as Ann Budges advisor on football matters.

This.  He built most of the crucial pieces of the squad that Paulo won the cup with (including bringing Rudi back).

If we are going down the caretaker route we would be as well appointing Locke or Daly for the short term.

JJ as DoF and Robbo as manager. That'll do me.

Would happily get him in as a potential temporary Director of Football to help Ann with her unease about replacing Levein, recruit a new manager and possible long term DoF (DoF being more of a back seat admin job, contracts etc) 

 

I think he is probably a bit over the hill to deal with coaching the modern players with all their social media depression and statistical shite etc. Austin would probably give him some tactical chat and show him an iPad with some analysis, JJ would punt him on the first ferry to Belfast within 10 minutes. You never know though, could be that’s what’s needed.

Said for a long time that JJ should've been given the DoF roll when Budge came in. Guaranteed we would not've signed the amount of players we have done and no stupid long term contracts. He would sign the right coach for the team. On the current situation....I'd let Gary Locke take over with Gary Naysmith in as his assistant, maybe Steven Naismith on board in some capacity. Watched the Si Ferry interview with G Naysmith last night, reckon he'd jump at the chance.

Smith's right boot

Any new man should be in place after hibs, even maybe Aberdeen. 

 

Not to give CL more time ( although it does this) it's to protect the new manager, if in his first few games he lost to hibs and then Aberdeen put us out the cup we'd literally be back to certain  fans screaming that there is no way back for him and for him to gtf.

Poor try at trolling.

You’re still giving him more time.

I would like the DOF to be someone who understands the modern game and has progressive ideas. Much as I love JJ I don't think he does. I'd certainly have him in till the end of the season if CL left completely with players he knows and trusts in the managers role. Coouldn't be any feckin worse than it is.

Nah, I could just I imagine  the reaction, if that in the first few games in charge the new guy got beat of hibs and emptied in the lc.

I like JJ but selective memory at its best on show.

 

Similarities with CL: Left under a cloud and took players with him, got grubbed away from home (Motherwell 6-0?), nearly got us relegated with an expensive squad (maybe CL will get his chance).

 

Second stint both had a good run curtailed by injuries leading to massive anti climax.

 

If only CL had won the cup.

 

We had a great season under JJ but it wasn’t all wine and roses.
