Harsh. Seems he's doing a good job with the laddies?

I've head from folk with connections apparently May is not that well liked by the players in the development squad.

So be it. His job is to help produce talented young footballers who have the mental and physical strength to play the first team. I'm sure he is none too bothered if the development squad players like him or not.

He's a dour, torn faced git.

I like him.
He is indeed a dour, torn-faced git but he seldom praises the development squad when he is in the dugout during their games. A case of modelling himself on a certain manager, perhaps?

I've seen very little of him, what I've seen I don't like.

After listening to his dour and negativity, matched with the way we played in the last two matches, he'd be gone. I don't want a coach like that around the club managing the young laddies. The guy has a very negative aura about him.
But he’s doing a role he doesn’t aspire to, and doesn’t want.

Judge him on what he has done in the role he is there for.

That's my view too - he keeps on telling us he doesn't want the job - he's a fish out of water.

Seems a bit more successful in his real job, and I don't care if anyone likes him.

For a man who is the guardian of our future generation, I'm surprised he played Sean Mackie last night for the whole 90 minutes when the youngester was clearly out his depth and toiling badly. Even when all the subs had been used he still kept Mackie in the same position even although he looked clueless in that position and was having a torrid time.

The laddie is moved around a bit in the development team. Earlier this season, when we played up at Dundee in the lower leagues cup, Mackie was playing right midfield (almost diametrically opposite to his "normal" left full-back position) but when a defender was injured, he reverted to his full-back role, and played well. The development/reserve team were unlucky to lose a goal in the last couple of minutes.

Young players often learn more from the bad games than the good, May knows the lad so must be confident he has the character to grow from the experience.

Let’s hope so . I’ve only see him play left back for the first team and I was very impressed .
Best crosser since Tortolano .. decent pace .. tallish .. strong and I rate him .

I do as well, he’s got all the attributes to be an excellent full back.

Whose up next for the slagging off?The kit man?
Funny you should say that.
Tam McCourt is a waste of a wage.
Every week he's seemingly fit enough to get a place on the bench and yet I've never seen him get a game.
What's that all about.

He's neglected the pitch for too long.

Last nights team wasn’t negative. Two strikers and gauld in behind. Players played crap in seconds half. Work rate and desire wasnt there

Went to see him at a St Pats question and answer session at the Hibs club,put my hand up and asked him what soap powder he would recommend.Got a laugh.
