Looks like he’s about to be sacked from Stoke. Connections with Savage so would imagine he will be touted for us after a few more defeats.

No thanks he’s bobbed about down there for the last 10 year and done nada

You can't really compare managing in the Championship to our MM League.

He took Norwich to the EPL and Sunderland promoted to the Championship last year.

He's who we've been waiting on for ages, IMO.

Would certainly take the heat off the Board before Thursday. Could also take Naismith on as assistant to save money.

Why not? 

Wage demands for one thing, he’s currently on 28k a week, and there is no way he will undersell himself that much to the point where we could afford him. 
He is also an experienced manager who will not accept being dictated to by the board of amateurs running Hearts, so this will rule him out of even being considered

That would be my choice. Both men would have to agree but they should be asked.

No decent experienced manager will accept the failed previous guy foisted on him.

Any competent experienced manager will 100 % insist on his own staff

He's already got Savage and McAvoy here as well. I think he'd take it regardless of the cash on offer. A decent crack at Europe with a patient board or another stint in League One.

My mate works in Tescos, I’m not tempted to join him for the bantz 😊

He isn’t getting £28k anywhere else now that he has left the bet365 money house. We could probably afford to pay him close to half that if we were sure he was the right guy. His management team are already here so that would save on pay-offs.  I think Neil has been the Savage/McKinlay master plan all along. Naismith was just a holding plan. Time will tell

Need to push the boat out and get him signed. No point in wasting money on experiment after experiment. If not, our 5 year plan will become a 20 year plan.

He'd maybe join you for the bantz if he wasn't for off a millionaire.

Don’t forget they were at Norwich at the same time so could be buddies?  Gives Naismith the chance to do his badges without also being the main man.

Only drawback will likely be family all based in England.

Sorry I do not agree . I think we have some good players and I do not blame Savage for how poorly we are playing

He is the very last man who should manage our club.😳😳😳

 

if we want to prop up the incompetent Savage era and the three clowns currently in charge he’s your man.

 

He’s failed BIG time down south and he should be rewarded with our club.

 

A total non starter!

Before this clamour reaches a crescendo, this is not going to happen 

Neil will most likely be in another job before the current board even considers Naismiths position

A vast improvement on what we have, but the board won't be interested in fan sentiment about the current manager. We're merely customers ready to be replaced to them.

He has also done very well down south at times and he knows how to manage a football club . I actually think he is the perfect choice right now and I think he would have an impact straight away

Is he better than what we’ve got ?

 

Yes.

 

But it would also mean Savage keeps his job a bit longer.

 

Deal until the summer would probably suit both parties right now.

He's never on 28k a week.

Are we not into our 3rd 5 year plan already?

We need rid of Savage, McAvoy, Forrest and Naismith.

 

With Neil 3 of the stay and Savage further bigs himself in to our club.

 

It’s a no from me. I’d go McInnes.

 

One thing is certain we need change (not just whatever title Naismith has) and an experienced manager who doesn’t do vanity projects.

Those turning their nose up at him, it would be interesting to hear who they think would be an improvement.

 

Every time Hearts, Hibs and Aberdeen sack a manager they are linked with a few attractive (usually unrealistic names). The end appointment is usually underwhelming.

 

Alex Neil is still a young coach but has experienced a lot in the game. Promotions with Hamilton, Norwich and Sunderland.

 

Arguably his stock is still higher than Scottish football, he’d still walk into a job the upper ends of League 1 in England.

 

If Naisy keeps suffering the same cloud and lack of optimism from the support as Neilson did then we’d be mad not to consider him into the new year.

As I believe the players are not the problem , I do not have an issue with Joe Savage . I would launch the other three though

Aye, a 6 month deal that involves him moving  house to a job that pays multiples less than he was earning before sounds ideal....

 

He'll need to held back while he counts his pay off for that opportunity!

 

This type of post just highlights the gulf between ambition  and fantasy.
