Until tonight I tended to agree that Alexander would stay, even after last week. Not what I wanted but realistic. But the lack of any sign of a new approach tonight makes me think the Board cannot afford to keep the faith.

I honestly don’t see the board removing him between now and Sunday, he will get the start of the league campaign, whatever anyone thinks IMO.

However I think he’s past the point of no return with the fan base now and if we have a poor result against St.Mirren then the knives are going to be well and truly out for him in the first home game a week on Saturday. I think we could well be looking at a repeat of that May ‘07 2-3 St.Mirren game under Malpas. Listening to his interview on Radio Scotland it sounded like he was getting verbal from at least one Motherwell fan, so much so that Al Lamont apologised and asked him if he was okay to continue at one point.

Someone has just pointed out that our colts team beat Sligo Rovers 4 years ago...

That's correct.  Maybe we should have played our colts tonight

Coyle’s his mate, he’s never going to criticise him.

Coyle's a prick.

Nevin clearly hasn't seen us recently either if he thinks there's nothing to worry about

I think another manager could do a better job with the same players. 

Couldn't agree more

We look like s team that needs some fresh ideas on the coaching side. Maybe we could actually bring in a coach to work with them or have we used the staff budget on Performance Therapists and Analysts?

All these pals speaking up for Alexander reminds me of the uproar regarding Hibs and Ross. The vast majority of Hibs fans had had enough of Ross....their boards at the time  were very similar to this one......but the media were aghast. As were fans of other Clubs, including ours.

But in truth the fans are not fools and know what they are witnessing week in week out. They know when it is time to act. As fans of Motherwell, Craigen and Faddy are much more in touch than the likes of Coyle and Nevin.

I think we used it up bringing in more of Alexander's old crew this summer.

We've just been easily outplayed by a team lower ranked than us over two games,we never even laid a glove on them,nobody pissed off by this result is dilusional.the writing is on the wall already,if you think this team will turn up and get off to a good start on Sunday then your the dilusional one.

Real world facts, ie results, show that in modern times Scottish sides often struggle against teams from Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and even Wales.  No one should be surprised but if a Scottish teams draws one of them next season we'll get the same pre match bravado and similar results.  Scottish fans need to wake up and smell the cheap own brand coffee.  

As for our start to the season I've made no prediction, I don't have the clairvoyant powers like you obviously do but I've been around long enough to know that sometimes the last result doesn't determine the next result.

If Motherwell win are you prepared to break an egg on your face?  Of course not.

Alexander getting pelters and rightly so. I want him out the door asap but the players wearing that jersey were an absolute disgrace. No fight , no skill and quite frankly majority should never play for us again but I know that is impossible. I am just raging after that

Sligo have gone full time since then and obviously improved, we sadly have not, Motherwell were utter dross over 2 legs and have been since December.
All the signings since then have been underwhelming or just rank rotten.

I'm not going to defend Ross but Hibs didn't get any better, in fact they got worse under Maloney.

The new manager has them eliminated in the group stages of the League Cup as a prelude to the new season.

Be careful what you wish for.

And when Alexander is gone sooner rather than later will you be breaking an egg on your face? of course not.

Are you serious, have you watched us from last year, anyone could do better than a couple  wins from the turn of the year, be realistic

I've made my position clear.  I judge him after 11 league matches.

My prediction is that our next result will be a win, loss or draw.  Your prediction is that we will definitely lose.

There is no comparison in positions.

Your position of defending the undefendable is embarrassing and you predict either a win,loss or draw on sunday,do you do the lottery numbers ?

But they tried. No-one will ever know if Ross would have turned things round either. Would they be in any better position now if Ross had stayed.? But the Club and the fans decided enough was enough.  It's that old question..."How long do you wait?"

Will we be in a better position if Alexander stays for six months/a year? I don't believe we will. He has shown nothing in the past six months to convince me he can change for the better.
