Very much so. Certainly a clear statement from him that he views football from a different lens than Levein.

I can’t help but feel if we were 3-2 with Levein in charge, we’d have went conservative, we went for the throat today which I’m pleased about, good show McPhee.

Yeah, I was kinda worried that he was/ is the type of guy that over complicated things..

 

But he was bang on the money today, talked the talk to the press , but his team walked the walk today. 

Superb, but gotta carry it on, Eiropa League teams don't piss about in the league, get a run going now

A little summary of what was different to a levein team/setup would be good to her for someone who missed the game!

2nd half was great but first half was a shambles and yet more examples of trying to reinvent the wheel. Well done today for the 3 points and for keeping going when we got in front. No thanks going forward tho as the manager, we need someone else. Keep winning and scoring goals and you’ll change my mind however.

Wonder how big an impact Donald Park has made, he was leading the way in training up at St Andrews.

When in charge he's won four out of five. 

 

If he keeps winning, how can he not be given the job?

We were at home against a very weak side.  Absolutely not getting carried away.

Too many defensive errors, need big Halkett and Souttar back now.

Big if though, esp when Daly & Fox don't seem to be rated by some at the club, according to folk ITK

Exactly. Everything you say is spot on but I don’t think my mind will change I really don’t want him as manager.

Yeah I agree. I have said many times, any manager that gets a tune out our squad will do very well. Budge was correct when she said that we have assembled a squad capable of doing more even with the injuries we had. Well done everyone today.

Well done, Austin. Glad to see we're in safe hands.

 

He also screams his heart out on the touchline, always like to see that even if it makes no difference.

I don’t want him either but if he went on a 4/5/6 unbeaten run winning games in style, I’d be willing to give him a go.

Football management is not rocket science. You win games, you get a job. You lose games, you lose your job.

He'll need to keep winning first. 

It was only St Mirren at home. Not trying to take anything away from the win.

Players in their correct positions, forward passes, 4411 formation, clear tactics and he was demanding the team go forward at every point.

 

Just listening to Sportsound, Alan Preston clearly doesnt like MacPhee. Was giving him it tight before the match and has nothing good to.say about the win today.

Great that we won today but we still need perspective (we were playing St Mirren) and we need to think about the bigger picture, and for me that’s not with Austin as manager.

I still think Berra must play beside Smith with the options we have atm. Doesn’t cover individual errors but even accounting for making us weaker at RB it’s still better.

Still thought the football, especially in the first half, was dreadful. This was against terrible opposition. Still, well done in finally getting us a home win in what has been a disgraceful episode in our history. Let's build on this

He was harsh about the whole club before the match, saying there was nothing good just now and that includes our youth set up.

Definitely. That pairing works better and should be used going forward IMO.

So why wasn't he doing that as assistant manager?

I wouldn't be going on his interviews to be fair.

Yup, even when the fifth went in he was urging the players forward.

He was very scathing about the club, I thought he sounded bitter. Maybe something has happened with him and the club?!

Probably because his role as assistant coach was to train the players the way the manager wanted to play.

 

He has still along way to go to convince me he is the man for the job but he can only do what his job allows him to.

Preston is a naysayer of the first order.

He got the starting 11 massively  wrong last week at Hampden.   
  
Good to see him make changes today and dropping Clare completely and set the team up to play attacking football. 
 
Credit where it’s due.

I’m not giving any Hearts manager a pat on the head for delivering what should be a run o’ the mill victory against shite like St.Mirren at home. 

 

Austin MacPhee’s not the answer.

NVM just read it was about Preston.

 

Trying to be as vocal a mouthpiece as Stewart.

I didn't catch the pre-match interview, I saw the one during the week.

 

So thanks for the heads up, maybe he is just trying to distance himself from the previous manager?

 

Talking about Allan Preston not MacPhee

Maybe, or maybe he knows things that us lot don't. 

He was pretty scathing, with justification. 

Like others have said though, just keep winning games,  and everything else will fall into place.

If he keeps winning he keeps the job, it's that simple. 

Time will tell. 

 

I don't think he's the man for the job either but we can't completely rule him out just yet.

Come on CT, we have just pumped a team 5-2. No praise at all? Yes, we should be beating St Mirren, but recent form suggests it probably should have been closer. If you were there, you cant help but see a huge difference in the way we played. 

 

If a new manager had got that result today would you not have praised them?

Whether fair or unfair, there’s no chance he’ll get the job full time as he’s tarred with the Levein brush.

 

Budge knows it’s an appointment that needs to get the fans onside, not one that would  turn in an instant as soon as things go wrong.
