Hope so

 

 

The players should get a chance under the new guy, I know they have all been shit but a change of style and formation with proper coaching will do wonders.

Harsh on Andy Kirk imo.

 

Highly respected as the 'best coach' at the club by many. Can't see him getting the boot to be honest.

 

Sceptical anyway, seeing who the OP is.

Maybe some will be demoted rather than punted

Thought I read that Stendel was just bringing in one assistant and would assess his further requirements once he was in position.

Like other posters, that seems a bit harsh on Andy Kirk, who along with John Rankin, seems to be quite highly regarded.

Want the rest of them gone though,

Although I'm not too sure if MacPhee is more suited to the SD role or not..

Which would make sense and seems like a bit of a compromise.

He has quite possibly just used JKB to help him decide those that warrant being booted!!

Not bothered who stays or who goes. Don’t know much about any of them. How good they are. What they do every day. If the players like them. 
 

surpeised about Kirk.

Plus the cost of moving on & bringing in players.

The Board, who are culpable for the debacle of the malaise & piss poor first team, had better have plans to pay for these costs

Best coach at the club isn't that hard just now. 

 

We do need a massive clear out and get the best people we can even if it means getting rid of guys like kirk who played for us.

No John Rankin ? 

If true this is great news as it’s needed Tbf

all this talk of 5 year plans etc .. it’s now ripped up and in the bin 

genuinely think Stendel will rid the club of every bit of negativity and defensive mentality and get us back where we belong playing a brand of football which hasn’t been seen in a long long time ... time will tell But Xmas has come early for me

That’s going to cost us in compensation!

The hundreds of thousands that have been thrown down the drain in the last 3 years! 🙈

Aye right, not a chance, he won the reserve cup, has the team 2nd, plays youth academy players and has nothing to do with the starting XI that would see him get sacked. Why do folk think we're dying to pay more and more people off when we can't even fully sack Levein 🙄

I'm not naming my source but she told me Stendal was our man 3 weeks before the paper talk. 

Listen I haven't been to a pub in a few years. 

We don't have one in our village

Didn't Andy Kirj win the reserve Scottish Cup last season.

 

He is the only real success out of them all.

 

I personally won't be that happy if Kirk is launched. The rest of them I am not really that bothered.

Euan Murray? Very vocal today on Twitter. From Bermuda no less  covering the Hero Challenge. Only target and has taken the full course to get him. 

 

Easy to say the whole lot will go, but I expect at least one to stay,  Kirk. 

 

Keeper coach always has a chance to survive but hopefully not

After that  performance today other than Michael Smith I won’t be disappointed if anyone from the top to the bottom are removed! Absolutely disgraceful performance/attitude today. Onwards and upwards

My tuppence ha'penny worth.....

It's said that Stendel is allowed one of his own assistants for now. My thinking is that we can't afford all three right now so his second assistant will join up in the summer. Wage-wise we'll have to pay off all the others (i'd keep Andy Kirk though) and Stendel will need a budget for January. He'll also need to see the full squad first to determine who stays and who goes. The ones on the shortest contracts will likely get told to leave, less compensation than long contracts. It'll take about two years to right the wrongs of Levein and his failed side-kicks. Don't know the financial side but we might have to get rid of two players at a time. I'd go McLean and Wighton to start with, the two wages may get us a decent goalscorer. Then a bit later on, White, (Hickey's too  young to be in every week and maybe Garruccio'll be back by then), and Clare, purely because he looks uninterested half the time....and on it goes, Mulraney and Damour etc.. Certain players worth keeping are Smith, Halkett, Naismith and only a few others. We'll probably see more of Cochrane and MacDonald from next season but others like Walker, Dikamona (and even Damour) might be worth keeping depending on what Stendel thinks and if he believes he can improve them. The goalkeeping situation is a nightmare, not one of three of them any better than the other. Be interesting to see when Souttar and Washington are back and the system he puts in place.

Seat belts on folks, it's gonna be a rocky ride!

Keeper coach has failed to improve any of our goalies in his time.

A total clear out means exactly that - total clear out. This is exactly what was required, no survivors. I wish all of them the best of luck and thank them for trying. But we said heads must roll and the axe has fallen.

I've been having a think and two things have occurred to me.  Firstly, it's only right that Stendel has coaches he's confident with.  If he's not able to bring three with  him, some of the incumbents will stay and he'll be assessing them.

 

I suspect these guys just do what they're told and are not responsible for the mess we're in.  Not MacPhee though.  While he's currently behaving with great dignity, he has to go.  Tarred with the levein brush.
