Predicting that Ann will panic after Saturdays debacle and will approach Motherwell to speak to him in the next 48 hours . 

Not saying it's a good or a bad thing but can see her going down this route .

The reason I say panicking is because there has been ample time to make an approach if he was on our radar . 

Hes made it clear he doesn't want any dialogue unless he is first choice . 

I think she will now panic and make contact fairly quickly with him .

Don't think she will panic.  Very important to get the right people in but who are they.

 

Wish I knew.

 

Seems to me that all of the potential candidates have a significant record of failure.

 

Very concerning.

He may well become first choice as our other first choices become non choices.

The slightest bit of due diligence will result in Robinson being 100% ruled out

Won’t matter if we get the right man. I’ve been on Facebook and Twitter and apparently Ann Budge has destroyed our once proud club. Irreparably. End times.

Agreed. If she was the panicking kind, Craig Levein would have been ushered out the door a long time before he actually was.

If we have time restrict ourselves to managers already in Scotland, he would be  the best choice.  
 

if that is the level of our ambition, though, and we are not casting our net wider, then that is very disappointing, and just shows how incompetent our recruitment personnel are, especially after the time we are taking.   Both this time, and last, where we suddenly realised the best person for the job was the interviewer.

We're already in a relegation fight. However we're only just past a quarter way through the campaign and, imo, it is better that we take our time and get this decision right. The way the league is at the moment, if we get the right guy in then we have plenty of time to steadily move up the table.

His team, on a shoestring budget, have been pumped far less than our team, with the 3rd/4th biggest wage bill in the league.

 

Who knows what he could do with better players.

Motherwell are doing ok but nothing spectacular. They've lost 6 out of 14 league games and got put out of the league cup by us at home when they played pretty poorly. 

 

On the plus side, their recruitment seems to have been pretty good since Robinson went there and he's developed a few good young players too. 

 

It's a mammoth task to transform our fortunes just now and I think I'd prefer someone with more experience such as Warnock, even if it was only until next May.

I’m starting to think (for different reasons) some of our targets have been unrealistic. Robinson would almost certainly want the job.

I don't know what Robinson's record is like compared to Levein's assuming you are talking about win percentages etc. However with the budget Robinson has had to work on in comparison to Levein's and the money Levein has wasted on non event signings I know who I would rather have .

The hope with young managers is they will continue to improve. Levein was in the worst run of his career and had no prospect of improving imo.

 

Couple that with vastly different budgets and comparing their overall records is basically pointless.

. this is the problem with lack of leadership, the void leaves too much room for discussion.. when we appointed Robbie Neilson there were similar doubts, but the club were clear an decisive and the fans accepted it and got on with it.

 

this “process” just comes across that we won’t know what or who we need, we’ve all formed opinions which will ultimately be held against the new manager unpess

its Stendel or Warnock who have had near universal support.. 

 

if we waited 6 weeks to appoint a Stuart McCall there will be meltdown, you’d be lucky if 1 in 10 thinks that appointment would be a good idea

Possibly. Don’t get the Robinson hype myself. Very much the Tommy Wright, Gary Holt, of this season imo.

He barely registers on my whelmometer. Handed his arse by Jack Ross yesterday. Not saying tat should rule him out but all this, "Done a good job on a budget" stuff isn't enough for me. Who's to say he could do the same with more money. His recruitment has been better than ours but that's not saying a lot. The definition of meh for me. Would, probably steady the ship and have us playing better but long term we need and deserve better IMO

I agree that if we wait 6 weeks and appoint McCall questions should be asked but if that happens there will surely be good reason. 
We are only three weeks into the six week period though so patience required for just a bit longer. It’s a bit like Xmas, waiting to see what you get!
