I think Sunday is far from a free hit myself. We should be looking for a good start to the season and St Mirren are going to have a tough season. If we lose these winnable games we will go into the tougher ones under real pressure.

a free doesnt mean we shouldnt be looking to win it but it does mean we are not under the intense pressure we would have been had GA stayed the atmosphere would have been utterly toxic , if we went a goal down it would be utter poison

Craig Levein anybody?
I was thinking this earlier.
He's actually got quite good patter as it turns out as well.

And he’s probably the experienced ‘head’ that would benefit us just now.

Its unlikely though, as I’m sure he’s involved with one of the highland league sides as some kind of advisor on a full time basis.

Hammell and Kerr to take the team on Sunday.

We could do worse that start both of them.

Hammell would still be our best left back even at 40 years old.

Glad it's not my job to appoint our next manager as there's no obvious name popping into my head.  Given the timing, we can't really afford to take weeks over it but at the same time, an appointment we need to get right. Tricky balancing act...

Have we ever gone into to a new season looking for a new manager having not played a single league match before?

Guessing not. Pretty unusual situation for any club, I reckon. Be interesting to see the names that get suggested by the media. It won't be any of them, but it'll be interesting...

Huge appointment.

Someone with experience of making do with what's available (like an international manager) would be ideal.

Levein would be a great shout I think. As would Strachan if he was interested in managing again.

If there was an ex well player with the credentials I'd be delighted for them to come in but I can't think of any other than Lambert. In fact he's been out of work for 18 months, he's probably a decent shout. Ipswich binned him after he got them relegated and wasn't looking like taking them back up but he's got a load of experience and has a connection to the club. He needs a success somewhere to get a big job again so maybe we're the place to do it....

Paul Lambert is a good shout which I would have no problem with, big Dunky Ferguson another but imagine SOD's reaction if we got Patterson on loan?.  My leftfield appointment is Darren Fletcher being assisted by Faddy.

I had a quick look at previous well players who are now managers. Lambert was the only one I could see out a job.   

Difficult to say , always is.   

Don't mind taking a few weeks to get the right person and have someone like Hammel look after things for a few weeks.

Anybody that doesn’t play 4-3-3 !!!!!

Levin's 4-6-0 carried about as much goal threat as we do at the moment so could be a good fit.

Pretty much my view Greg. No obvious candidates at the moment.

The vacancy has arisen when there are no obvious candidates available. It’ll be interesting to see if the Board look for experience or are willing to give a young upcoming coach a chance. 

Big Dunc would probably go terribly wrong but he’s the one exciting name that springs to mind. Maloney and Thomson may express an interest. Lambert probably doesn’t fancy a return to Scotland.

Since we won't be paying compensation  we need to look at who is available just now. 

Duncan Ferguson

Paul Lambert

Claudio  Ranieri

Any of them float your boat???

If he has walked with a contract running until 2025 he deserves huge credit, I would not do that in his position.  Credit also for the closing comments, gone with a bit of class.

Ally MacLeod was probably the quickest out the door into a new season that I can think of, up until today. If only Hammell could do a Davie Hay.

I think the mutual consent thing usually includes an agreement on compensation. He seems to have initiated the conversation, so I doubt we've paid him and lucketti off fully, but the communication from both parties suggests things were a bit more amicable than punting him with just his bfh.
