Easy to say now but what forward planning was there when the supporters identified the problem months ago yet everyone on the board it seems sit like the three wise monkeys. It's almost mid November and the team need proper leadership ASAP not in another month or two.

Agreed, should have been done sooner and we could have and should have moved on by now, hopefully winnae take too long tae get somebody in.

Ron interviews very well I thought, Leeann has had her views shot down I reckon, I think she would have got rid of them weeks ago, Graeme Mathie, nothing to write home about,they all agree that we are in a desperate situation and lots of work needs down to get us out of it. GGTTH

Graeme Mathie is the interesting one - his one is worth a listen - although it sounded at one point suspiciously like he was highlighting fine sporting margins and "luck". Hopefully that's just the emotional attachment to PHB and RS because they worked so hard to make it a success and ultimately didn't.

What I've learned from nearly 50 years of watching football, rule number 1:

The team that scores the most goals wins, and everything else is just chatter.

Mathie was the most concerning interview for me

He speaks well so I can see why he got the job but to say he didn't see The Dud getting sacked is beyond me

Also take some responsibilty for the recruitment

All good positive interviews.

I've no doubt the club recognises that we need good recruitment in January. Naturally it'll be up to the new coach but a good half dozen need to be onto their agents to leave in January.

Have only read the transcript, not listened to the interview in full - did he really say that? (Obviously not "the Dud" bit but the rest?)

Doesn't sound like a new manager appointment is imminent....
By the end of the month says Ms Dempster.

I’d be surprised if someone isn’t appointed before the Motherwell game on 23rd, no massive rush before then with the international break coming. They have to get this appointment right, 2 out 3 have been successful appointments so I have a bit of faith that they will.

Mathie's interview was definitely one to cause concern. It was like he was trying to claim we'd been unlucky in a few matches. It's worrying if someone in a football position can't see that we've been rubbish all season. I don't expect him to come out and say that, but please don't insult the support by hinting at we've just been unlucky with 'fine margins' drivel.

I liked what Gordon and Dempster had to say, even if I think the club should know by now who to go after because this should have been in planning weeks before they got rid of Heckingbottom as they knew it was coming.

Unlucky that we didn't get a decent manager and some players who were up to winning some games maybe

Well, I think results wise we have been a little unlucky and fine margins and all that. However as you say we've been playing shite and when you're playing shite these fine margins invariably go against you.

I get the impression Mathie will always try to paint a positive picture of things. What he says behind the scenes will probably be very different - ultimately he’s been part of the decision making process to sack Hecky, so he knows it’s not all down to bad luck.

Big/little Ron said:
That is all going to come together in the strategic plan that we hope to have completed by the end of this year. My goal is to present it to the board by the end of December and then share it with our supporters and shareholders at the start of next year.
Do we think this means the AGM will early next year?

likely given the notice period required and date we’re on now. I’ll bet around Mid January J.
