brilliant 

 

Hearts should have announced this on April’s Fools this place would have spontaneously combusted.

I've never been ITK in my life, but if I was and I decided to post it on a football forum, I'd absolutely expect about a third of folk to call me out and think I was talking shite, a third to be eating out my hand and the last third to be highly sceptical but polite.

 

Nobody has yet done the usual fishing though, eg:

Re new manager -

Will the majority be ecstatic?

Will the the majority be cautiously accepting?

Will the majority be raging?

Will the majority be baffled?

So people want Duncan Ferguson, with zero managerial experience bar a few games, but turn their nose up at Mcinnes 😂

Exactly, don't know where all this has come about Ferguson.

The Logan deal adds more credibility to the potential McInnes appointment.  They were very close at Aberdeen I believe.

So the ITKers who said Neil would be the new manager were right!

The people clamouring for Duncan Ferguson are just missing a bit of passion and playing for the shirt. It's been far too long.

 

I'd prefer McInnes to Neil but I'm not fussed. Just give me someone with a bit of something about them that can command a dressing room and set a team up positively.

So, there's two available that we are aware of at the moment. Derek McInnes and Alex Neil. 

McInnes kept Aberdeen up there for the last few years. His team was better a few seasons back when they had Adam Rooney etc in their squad. He signed some decent players and only a few failures and hasn't been allowed to sign as good quality as before due to cutbacks at the club. he wanted Liam Boyce and never got him. He wanted to take Gary Mackay-Steven back to Aberdeen, he never got him. And now we've got Shay Logan, yes, initially on loan but he wants to stay on and sign a contract with Hearts if he can. Quite a McInnes connection to recent signings.

Alex Neil. Helped turn Hamilton into a steady Premier team (wish these fkrs would get relegated, shitey support and stadium)  and he did quite well at Norwich at first with a fraction of the budget of the big English clubs. Knows Joe Savage from his time with Preston. In terms of keeping Hamilton steady and managing okay at Norwich, i'd say Hearts were a good in-between option, a challenge to get Hearts back near the top. Norwich weren't expected to challenge the Man City's and Liverpool's of this world, Hamilton are happy avoiding relegation every season so a tempting challenge seeing as there's really only the old firm to get near in Scotland. 

I don't know.....either of them would be up for that challenge i think. If it is one of them then they've got a lot of mess to sort out.

Added fuel to the fire is McInnes in the press stating that he'd get back into management if the right job came up. I'm guessing he may have been sounded out already and the newspaper articles are paving the way for an announcement once promotion is secured and Robbie can bow out having achieved the promotion he was employed to get.

We have tried an up and coming coach, we have tried a foreign coach with a different style of play. The media hate them up here and it's sad to say the players don't respect or respond to them, maybe because they are of the same  mind set as Kris Boyd. Unfortunately a good old fashioned reliable Scottish face will be our best chance of getting our players to put in a shift.

Amazing every man and his dog......what a load of rubbish spouted in that post

 

Figures have been given and it is under 5% stopping subs.............given you don't contribute then you'll not be part of that anyway

 

Good to see you have a list of twats from your vast experience of life and football knowledge just in case anyone at the club needs to refer to you for advice

My problem with McInnes or any of the Scottish merry go round managers is their fear of the OF. Stendel didn't have that fear and this is something we need. Play each game as it comes no matter the opposition.

Sadly true.
We tried to break it by appointing Stendel.

The arseholes in the west didn’t like it but it’s alright if the arse cheeks do it.

Let's get back as close as we can to the Old Firm first before we start worrying about that.

 

Just being in front of Hibs and Aberdeen would be great for starters.

I get infuriated that if we, or any other team, do something like bringing in a foreign coach or trying different methods the press jump on it. If the OF do it they are praised for being visionary. Think of the abuse we got in the Romanov era for foreigner in the team. I don’t remember Rangers or Celtic getting that abuse when Advocaat and O’Neil had their starting line ups with one or two Scottish players at most in them. 
I’m sticking with my long term opinion that the majority of the media in this country are uninformed scum that are best ignored.

It's probably still in the top pocket where it struck him. 

Lennon was never going to be up for an academy award for his performance that night. The way he went down in stages still makes me laugh when i think about it. And all that to take the heat away from his own fans who'd attacked Zlamal. Comedy gold.

Wasn’t quite what the OP said. Was more like he’s graciously decided to step aside for the greater good of Hearts. Using Hendolad as his spokesman to the fans and now wants to be known as Rob or Bob because he’s reinventing himself.

I agree that foreign coaches in the past have been better with the old firm but what you’re missing is stendel’s record against the poorer teams was shit.

 

I would rather beat the teams who we should beat and take a scalp every so often against the old firm, ideally in the cups like we did with JJ.

Not against Neilson he hasn't and his star is rather on the wane, particularly since he doesn't run the football club from top to bottom. 

 

My Mrs has a season ticket I've watched as much of Aberdeen as I have Hearts, frying pan into the fire.

 

Would be an abysmal unimaginative and ultimately flawed appointment. 

 

Prepared to take stick, stuck my neck out on the signing of Mackay Steven as a player who was either hot cold or injured, physically or mentally. 

 

Unfortunately I know a good deal about the Sheep, eye bleeding. 

 

Same words people have used about Neilson and they want Mcinnes to replace him.

 

Its incredible 


What incredible is given our plight we’d turn our noses up at a manager who finished in Europe every single season he’s managed in Scotland. 
 

a manager who unquestionably restored aberdeen to being the third force in Scotland after decades of being a laughing stock.

 

we are the laughing stock now, we are a complete ****ing joke.

Yep, Killi tried something different with that Italian bloke. You get players that have never left Scotland moaning to the press that they don't like the training etc etc. Scottish football is a joke.

I used Stendel as an example of managers who don't crap their pants at playing the bigot twins.

Agreed but I bet if the media are moaning about it, then there are players in our squad doing the same. Lazy, half wits.
