I know many Managers (in my working life) that were grade A arseholes but were still in a job because they got results.

When did you work with Mark McGhee? Obviously a few years back given the 'they got results' comment...

Pretty much my view. Every squad needs a few additions every year to keep it fresh and address weak areas but not too many. You don't want massive overhauls that disrupt continuity with new faces taking time to settle in. Continuity/cohesion and stability are vital, but as OTF says you need the right players. Look at St Johnstone under Wright. Not everyone's cup of teaincluding mine, granted, but they got the right players in for them  and their squad was settled for years. Look what they achieved.

Like , many I too was hoping to see some kind of change in the right direction last Thursday but saw no evidence of that. His brand of football isn't easy on the eye but as long as it yields results results, fans will go along with that. When the results don't come then thats a different matter entirely.

Well you had 3 new players playing last week how many do you want before its considered a massive overhaul

Well, based on the performances since the turn of the year, we needed 10 new signings. Each for outfield positions.

Alexanders problems are not his attitude or his jumpers, really who cares about that? Its that he sets up his teams not to lose, but sadly they aren't good enough to do that. When we go behind, we have absolutely nothing to offer in an attacking sense. The biggest issue is that for some reason he doesn't recognise this and keeps attempting the same rubbish over and over and over again.

And now based on the summer comings and goings, he is expecting us to pivot a counter attack with zero pace. God help us.......

I actually thought the brand of football had changed towards the end of last season and on Thursday, in that, we played the ball on the deck a lot more. We were just so painfully slow at moving the ball around, it was easy for Sligo to retain their shape and defend. When anyone tried to zip a pass quickly (Morris/Spittall/Slattery) the recipients first touch let them down badly.  Maybe thats why GA was reverting to hoofball in the first place?

I agree with the refresh thing. Continuity of squad and selection is the hallmark of most successful teams. We have had precious little of either in recent years.

We’re doomed under the command of this imposter. He needs to be told to GTF now.

Absolute laughing stock under this clueless clown . Problem is he’s in bed with the clueless photographer larger clown who appointed him and is everyone’s friend because he’s a well fan. 

small little club mentality has stuck this time 

He goes now or they will both drag us down and empty fir park in a matter of weeks 

 

European tour your having a laugh - couldn’t beat a pub team over two legs.

There's no way back from this,he needs to go.hes assembled a squad that can't defend,no ability to pass there way through the opposition,no pace,no width and no goal threat.give him his nice little pay off and chase him before he does anymore damage if it's possible.

If he's still here on Sunday and the 'Well Rejects  XI beat us I can only imagine the scenes.

This humiliation will live long in the memory.

Could another manager get more out of this squad? On the basis of tonight, I'm not so sure. The club have allowed Alexander to assemble a squad incapable of creating chances or defending properly. In midfield,  not sure Spittal for O'Hara is an upgrade. Is Maguire better than Donnelly? Morris looks as slow as me. 

He has to go but frankly whoever comes in is inheriting a dreadful squad...

He should be making his own way home - and I don’t mean to Lanarkshire.

I think a new manager would at least instill some confidence in the players and bring new tactics...GA will never change unfortunately and the players have absolutely no confidence or ability under him. At what point do you say enough is enough?.  after 12 losses?...already happened...after being kicked out of Europe with the poorest performance over two legs in living memory? lose three goals without response home and away to a league of Ireland side?...dropping players in form and sticking with out of form players with no confidence?...signing players who already look absolutely out their depth. He has signed a deal until 2025 and sacking him is going to cost the club a fair whack when the rest of his team is sacked along with him.

If Burrows/Board don’t act after tonight, the form of 2022 has shown that this disaster will continue, and it’ll be their positions on the line as well. They have to do the right thing and hit reset now.

I'm not saying don't sack him. I'm saying simply sacking him won't save us. I'm suggesting we need to sack him and sign 5 or 6 players. Far from easy at this stage of the season but that's what is required...

Sack Alexander who is on a contract until 2025 and his backroom team will cost in excess over half a million? we dont have that money to burn and have money for 4-5 new players and a new manager and his backroom team as well.

Which is why I don’t expect it to happen.

I was prepared to give him a chance but  after watching that pish tonight he has to go now, those tactics and refusal to change will  get us relegated, so for me feck the cost and get him  to feck, what's the cheaper option sacking GA or the cost of relegation, get him to feck.

I don't disagree. Just telling you what I think needs to happen for us to have anything resembling a functioning team. Sacking Alexander may seem a slight improvement in player's morale and a slight bump in performances but it won't solve the major problems....

There's no way the club would have handed alexander and his team longer contracts without a back up plan,if they need to sack him the money will be there,no way would have put ourselves into a position where we're stuck with a failing manager.

I’m still of the opinion he will be given a few league games. Relegation would certainly cost the club more but without a game even being played yet, and given the fact they trusted him enough to keep in in the summer it would be some u turn. Relegation is never a certainly regardless of how often it’s stated, at this point it’s certainly not positive, but it’s not bottom two with two games to play either.
