Not 100% accurate, but take your pick. :hammer:
Half that list is out of date! Baikie's now at Lithgae, McGonigal's been & gone at Berwick, Mixu's still at Hibs & isn't Hughes at Blackpool? :lol: :lol: :lol:
No financial regulation, no corporate governance, no enlarged divisions, no summer football, no single ruling body, no new cash, no integrity. Behold the 'bright new dawn' for Scottish football,

This is possibly the worst suggestion yet!
1 Why?

2 Your suggestion is.
1. I didnt want that big hairy twat Pressley as a player and I sure as f*ck dont want him as a manager. He is a c*nt. A rookie c*nt at that. But the Craig Brown suggestion really takes the biscuit! If you think the football is bad now then why would you want him anywhere near management decisions?! Im pretty sure if you looked under boring, negative and desperate in the dictionery then Craig f*cking Brown would be there as an example.

2. I have none. Id rather poke fun at peoples hilarious suggestions.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

1. Nothing wrong with a big hairy twat, if fact can be very useful, therefore not a valid reason for not being a manager.
We Craigie has the best winning record of any Scottish National manager (McLeish excepted) in the past 30 years. As a lot of folk on here seem to put great faith in a certain managers history I thought I would throw wee CB name into the hat

2 Fair enough, don't know why you picked on mine then :wink:

Only one man for the job. Latapy. Bring back a smile to the club's face and he has so many contacts. It is a no brainer.

What size of a players ego thinks that you can, pull off a strip and pull on a suit and manage a top flight football club. Any manager worth his salt starts at the bottom, 2nd or 3rd division, like a levien or a o neill. I'm sure there are exceptions, but not many. For me its like a trade you simply have to serve your time.

Problem is that for every O'neill and Levein there will be a dozen plus managers who will never make the grade. The problem is getting the right guy period. Remember Coyle and Hughes had their first experience at Falkirk and neither of them were failures. But same goes for rookie appointments in that majorly they could end up unsuccessful (Eamon Bannon, Derek Whyte).

Why would Russell give up the extremely handsome salary he's paid at T&T for the pittance offered (in world football terms) at Falkirk ?

He and Hughes fell out about a year ago. No chance

What about looking at Jim McInally, he took a shoot outfit like the Shire and turned them around in one season. Who would have thought they would be challenging for promotion a season after they were bottom of the diddy league :hammer: :hammer:

Given that he is paying players more than 100 quid a week then its no surprise he turned them round. The players were on a tenner a game before hand. His squad is miles better because he was allowed to bring in better players.

His record at Morton in the 1st was terrible, and he had a reasonable budget there.

I know I wasn't backing him. My mate is a Ton fan and despises him beyond belief. Just pointing out that he's hardly performing miracles at Shire. Its simply down to the budget.
