meant to say Irish Coach. Like Cathro he's presumably well regarded and not just at Hearts. When Cathro left I think he went straight to Wolves who seem to be doing ok with him in the background. McPhee was also part of the Mexico 2014 World Cup Finals backroom team before coming to Hearts 

 

Obviously we're not doing well just now but if he is removed I have no doubt like Cathro, he will pick up a decent job

Cathro was our of work for a year before he got a job at Wolves when they were promoted.

I found this article that says Macphee wants to be a manager, but also indicates that he’s more of an analyst than a coach.

His computer says Sean Clare is the ultimate footballer.... I think it’s time he upgraded the software.

Austin is from Kirkcaldy   :facepalm: 

 

On another note, I've heard that he's not that well liked (no idea how much truth is in this and it's only what I heard, but the same source told me about Cathro before he was sacked so have no reason to doubt them) by the rest of the players, he's suspected of being a mole in the camp and running back to Budge with everything, but because if his contacts, and Budge's lack of football knowledge, she thinks he's some sort of golden boy for her, when it's clear to see that he's a waste of a wage. 

 

I've heard from Don Cowie that mcphee is very well liked and respected by the players. I look at our international players who are away (Whelan, Meshino, Smith) and they seem the better ones so would expect mcphee to be the same. O'Neill is a god in Northern Ireland and could get any assistant he wants but has had him sat beside him in the dugout when his team has been very good. Haircut needed tho but last season half our goals were from naismith and the other half from corners & freekicks and levein says he does the penalties which have got us to the semi. something not right tho with on and off the pitch

I'm sick of hearing how well liked Worzel Gummidge is with players.  This is sport not a personality contest.  I know Mary Poppins does not give the slightest shite about winning football games but it is the be all and end all and our results since he came in are ****ing atrocious.

Who took the credit for the East Fife penalties?

Not defending the guy in any way, nor trying to make-out that he's better than he showed with us*, but it's my understanding that Cathro was quietly working his way through our severance package for a year and - as soon as this was finished - he started employment at Wolves. There is a huge difference between this and being "out of work".

 

If he'd taken another job in the meantime he'd have lost-out on the compensation from Hearts that he - no doubt - felt was his due.

 

(*Although I suspect he's fine as a behind-the-scenes, tactics-and training geek, but absolutely not as a head-coach or manager...)

Of course that’s how it works, I was hoping they would employ him earlier to be honest for that reason. We have him a 3.5 year contract so it might’ve saved us money? It’s semantics, he wasn’t working. Wolves probably didn’t need him and hired more staff when they were promoted.

Could he coach them to take penalties in normal time as we’ve missed more than we scored. Cowie also said Cathro was popular.
