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.

And the fact he’s a fud. But I wouldn’t say that to his face.

As far as pundits like faddy and craigan go, nope. It's easy for them to spout their opinions on what we're doing wrong, knowing they're not on the hook to do anything about it. Neither have done anything to suggest they're capable of managing at any level. Craigan was great with the u21s, but that was a once in a blue moon crop of players, and a whole different ballgame compared to the senior team.

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.

He's made the smart move. He built it, but looking at that squad in action over the last two games,  he must've known it was only a matter of time - because they're shit, or because they're not playing for him. Or maybe both. Leaving now saves his reputation possibly taking a battering over the next few months.

Given that Faddy's getting his UEFA badges (and his stated interest in coaching/management), I wouldn't be against having him in one of our coaching roles - but I wouldn't have him anywhere near a manager's job at this point.

Right now I'm more curious about which role GA fills at St Mirren.

Kevin Thomson anyone?

That would be my choice. He is a winner having won premier League titles with Rangers. He was also part of the Rangers side which reached the 2008 UEFA Cup Final. Say what you like about Old Firm players but winning is expected and drummed into them. Knows the Scottish scene. Worked as youth coach at Rangers. Took  Kelty Hearts job when Barry Ferguson  left to join Alloa. Under him Kelty ran away with their league scoring goals for fun and conceded the least goals to. This would be a step up sure but he has proved he can set up a team and win games.  Also proved he can step into a club and hit the ground running.

It’s still a hell of a leap from Kelly Hearts to the Premiership.

Keep googling my way through experienced mgrs out of jobs . Martin O’Neill hasn’t managed for a few years and don’t suspect he would take this type of role but we’d benefit from someone of his calibre and experience .

I’ll put my wine down now

Did he not also have a huge financial advantage at Kelty? Easy way to con yourself into a job at a decent club

Big Dunc would be great fun, might go wrong nit it would be good fun. 

First player to play against us in a cup final that has ended up managing us? 

 

Maurice Malpas might lay claim to that honour.

Thank god fans don't pick managers, some of the shouts on here are just ridiculous and wild. In fact almost every single one mentioned so far. Some on here are definitely on the sauce celebrating GA going by the nick of these suggestions

I saw him at the Motherwell pantomime a few years ago, so he'd fit right in.

Malky MacKay would be the most experienced and most successful manager we could hope for but there would be major barriers to overcome to appoint him. Would he fit the club ethos given his history?

 I suspect compensation would be a major issue and is Motherwell a step up from RC these days?

He would have the Craig Brown quality of steadying the ship and may actually be able to take the team forward. Would be a major risk from a PR perspective.

I have no idea who next choice of manager should be  it shall be a bit left field as normal and not going to lie most of the names mentioned fill me with dread.

I would have loved Alex Neil but sadly he is at Sunderland but something along those lines will do for me.

I don't have one as there is no point. The clubs directors will pick the most appropriate person from those interviewed. I just hope they choose wisely

I'm sure he knocked us back a few years ago, not 100% on if it was an actual job offer or the chance of an interview.

Dick Campbell has done a great job with Arbroath as of late but not the most exciting of appointments due to his full track record, however I would fully support Uncle Fester if he was given the gig.

The club have knocked back the likes of Valakari and Van Der Gaag previously while we were fighting relegation, saying it didn't seem to be the right appointment for that situation at the time, essentially we may see an out of the box decision seeing we're at the start of the campaign.

I don't actually know who I'd go for, Dundee managed to get a guy who managed in the English Championship which seemed like a bit of a coup, names like Kenny Jackett and Nigel Adkins are unemployed at the moment.

Who ever gets the role has some job at hand.
