I get what you are saying but getting above Hibs is setting the bar too low.

 

Normally yes, i'd agree. But right now it's only the old firm above them (i know it's always a temporary thing with them) so as it stands at the moment, that's the target for next season. If that's achieved then that's the time to start thinking about further ahead.

Seems unlikely Budge would have said to Neilson he’s getting sacked before promotion is secured 

I would think the conversation was more like " we both know you are done and I don't want to sack you so maybe better you leave by mutual consent, what do you think Robbie? "

Sorry not ITK and don't know him well enough to be so informal.

Going foreign would be another huge gamble imo.....there have been so few successes of foreign managers in Scotland.

 

Scottish football is weird place and the chances are if you’re from overseas you won’t be in the job long.

Do you know the name of new manager? I am not asking for it - just if you know who it is.

If you don't know, how do you know it is not Ferguson?

You did not mention this in your OP. Why?

Well seen as i stay a few streets away from big duncs dads house also happen to be friends with him and his family due to his father being a major sponsor for the local amateur team  i played for .Its just a rumour dunc will never be back in the scottish game after what happened to him with the sfa so anyone who says otherwise is a liar and i call them out

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. 

Old Firm never get criticised as it would upset half their readership and the profits the get from them. Hearts are an easy target so get it in the neck more often than not. Look at the furore over the Lennon coin incident and going back to the 80s and bananas being thrown at Mark Walters (Hearts fans were quite rightly criticised for that however Celtic fans did the same a week earlier and there wasn't a peep from the media about it). It's the same whenever any of the smaller clubs get embroiled in sectarianism. It's why sectarianism is rife here as no one has the cajones to call the Old Firm out on it or do anything about it.

Don't know. Most of their foreign managers have had a rough time of it. Dr Jo Venglos, Wim Jansen, the Norwegian a few seasons back, Paul Le Guen at old Rangers. Dick Advocat got a bit of a hard time as well at times. The press want Rangers to have a British/English connection, Celtic an Irish connection. Fine with the likes of Souness, Warburton, Gerrard and O'Neill, Lennon, Liam Brady and Brendan Rogers. The rest of us haven't a hope in hell and should apparently be happy with our lot.

Spoke to someone very close to our manager last night.100% a new manager will be appointed for next season.Rob has acknowledged this but mutual respect will see him get us over the line this season.I believe the new manager has already identified changes that he wants made and promises have been given to allow this to happen.

 

I said the other day that I hope once he leaves and the new man is in charge that the awful names our manager has been called will stop and people will realise all he has ever wanted is the best for Hearts.Hes such a nice guy and very loyal.This hasn't ended how any of us wanted but it is what it is.Lets just get the league won and let him go with our thanks and respect.

Although budge is mainly to blame for bringing him back (anyone who watched the games last time around and wanted him back knows nothing about football), he's not done himself any favours by the boring football he's played and his lame excuses for the dreadful performances.  He's just annoyed the fans by blaming everything and everyone bar himself.

Well, he had a good mentor. He wouldn't really know any better.

Plenty yes over the 8 years he was there. 

 


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.   

You really need to take a closer look at Derek's career at Aberdeen. 

 

750k a year that doesn't work with Directors. 

 

His team scored 30 goals in 30 games. He can't or won't change from his style. He has hindered young players development stubbornly holding onto players who are misfiring. 

 

He squandered millions holding onto McKenna and Cosgrove when they could have went for double. 

 

His record in the transfer market collapsed when Rangers Hibs and Hearts recovered financially. 

 

He was mastered and schooled by both Neilson and Levein, two who have been pilloried for years but yet knew how to beat him. 

 

And this is who you want. Beyond the pale

Quite possible, mate. Savage has not got off to a great start looking at our January transfer business. 

Indeed he hasn’t, that’s why I’m concerned at the comments that he may be involved in selecting our next manager.

Always gets me when people think that non OF clubs losing in Glasgow is down to “fear” or “mentality” rather than the £millions gap in quality of player they’re able to buy. 

 

Do you think certain managers just come along and whisper something in a players ear to turn him from a £150k player into a £9m player overnight?

I've just sent this out to a few folk, it just tipped my m8 I go to the games with over edge. 

 

I better tell him the truth.... In maybe an hour. 

 

My rangers brother says it will end our alliance and my celtic m8 said he'd do well if given a chance.

He is sporting director - if he isn’t involved in decisions like next manager what is he getting paid for ?

But you’re happy for a manager who craps his pants against the likes of Hamilton and St Mirren?

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.

The structure was explained as the sporting director would be an equal to the manager and not in charge of him. What sort of set up would see you recruit for someone regarded as the same level as you?
