You're so predictable, 1981. I've read AJ's interview and can't find much wrong with it. Did you expect him to say we were rubbish and deserved to lose the game? You seem to have an almost pathological hatred of the manager, so much so that you actually pounced on his post match interview before it was released, no doubt thinking you were very witty in your OP. You have every right to feel angry and disappointed by our poor start in the league, but your constant persecution of our manager does you no favours.

Interestingly, Huddersfield' s manager said in his post match interview on MOTD, that he has now given the same interview in the last 7 games - his team has played well and created good chances but failed to take them and ended up losing.

To say that only one team looked like winning it is pointless, because, even if true, the other team did win it.

Those after match interviews are also pointless, because obviously, the manager will attempt to defend his patch.

But even in the privacy of the dressing room, he can hardly speak a bit harder, because many of the shortcomings are his own fault.

Every manager who gets sacked, probably feels hard done by, that is human nature, but it is, as has been said so often, a results based business and poor results are why they lose their jobs.

Tough as it may seem that is the nature of the business.

It wasn't the best game yesterday but we were the better team and looked like the team wanting to win the game.

individual mistake has cost us again.

I don't think we are far away either tbh, we could win the next to game and be sitting in the top 4 its that tight.

It’s a tough call to make. We have dominated games but our finishing in the final third has been poor, on occasions the ball has not broken for us and lots of good defending has denied us.

The managers substitutions are also baffling. To a person yesterday in the stand we were saying Martin (albeit good on the ball all day) had ran out of steam. He is dispossessed and Queens solitary shot on target all day hits the net!

The management team watch training all week so you would think they would know who is fit playing better and who deserves to be in the team etc. With the pool of players/talent we have at our disposal we should not be at the wrong end of the table.

Maybe time is running out for the management team. The Board may decide to give them another couple of games to turn the season around. There is no doubt about it an SPL play off place is looking increasingly unlikely.

No, I'm not. I merely pointing out that their manager admitted that he's saying the same thing after every game on a weekly basis and is obviously frustrated by it. I'm sure AJ would like to change his tune, too, but he can hardly do that if the results and performances are similar from week to week.

As a matter of curiosity, how did you come to the conclusion that Huddersfield are over achieving whilst the Pars are under achieving?

How can something be pointless, when it's true. Would you prefer the manager to publicly berate his team for not pressing home their territorial advantage?

Those after match interviews are also pointless, because obviously, the manager will attempt to defend his patch.

I'm sure AJ would happily not bother with those after a defeat, especially at home, but the club obviously requires him to give them.

But even in the privacy of the dressing room, he can hardly speak a bit harder, because many of the shortcomings are his own fault.

Unless one of the players comes out and tells us, we cannot know how rough his tongue is in the privacy of the dressing room.

Can't argue with that, but it's also true that clubs who regularly change their managers are statistically less successful, though of course, that's a chicken and egg situation.

You must have been a good defender GG, because you seem not to concede many points without resistance.
Quite right too.

Unlike yourself, I don't know the stats for clubs who change their management, but I've got to assume that they have Boards who have made the decisions in the belief that change was needed.

Otherwise, the number of times it happens would mean that clubs are full of directors with poor judgment.

Slightly better in the first half, gifted them a goal. Then, again, failed to show up second half while having a comedy show in defence. A better team than utd would've scored 5 or 6.

Managers who do that are usually deflecting any criticism away from the players.

If AJ came out and said that, it wouldn't make the pain of defeat any less for me, even if it was honest and true.

I would agree with you 1981par. It should have been a comfortable 3-0 win. Up front the pars have been ineffective and at the back we have given away easy goals. First job seems to me to be to tighten up defensively at home. We are not winning games at home so at least stop losing games. 0-0 draws will do at this stage. I personally dont think the squad is good enough to win promotion this season. Better teamwork is needed for sure and that would get us into the playoffs.

It's always good to hear someone being completely honest, 1981, but perhaps AJ is being sincere as he sees it, even if you obviously don't agree with his views.

What I would say is that the manager of any football club is in the best position of knowing all the facts and therefore able to make the most honest assessment. Some managers will be completely honest, others will try to shift the blame....

I don't know about Jose, but I've never once heard AJ accept any fault for poor performances.

I'd have more respect for him if he occasionally admitted some things he got wrong.
Saturday's subs coming on with no warmup time e.g.
Or last week's being bemusing to most spectators.

But he can't open up too much, or he could talk himself out the door.

He should know he is safe though, as we can't afford to pay him off, so a wee bit honest realism would be nice and maybe endear him to some who are always on his case these days.

My honest opinion is that he must get a win on Tuesday or it’s time up I’m afraid, the season is becoming lost and the fans are rightly becoming more and more frustrated with the standard of fare on show, especially at home

They might not be scripted, but I'd imagine the manager might ask to look at them beforehand and any he did not wish to answer would be taken out. This is fairly common practice throughout football.

Incidentally. Not one Pars fan I’ve spoken to since Saturday has backed AJ, everyone I’ve spoken to has said they want him gone.
Even some of his backers on here are changing their tune, and finding it more difficult to defend him.
I have backed this BOD since they took over the helm, and I’ll still back any decision they’ll make in running our club. If that means AJ staying, then so be it.

The interviews on parstv are just to round off the highlights.

No offence meant, but they are just not ever going to put the manager under pressure by asking anything too awkward or embarrassing.

Just a tepid wee rounding off of the package.

Need to get Tam Cowan or Cosgrove in if you want searching questions asked.

Careful not to put words in my mouth Stevie. I didn't say AJ refuses to answer any or some questions he doesn't like. I was just making a general point re managers. Some are very clear on what they are prepared to discuss post match. Jose and Fergie are two, high profile managers, who spring readily to mind. I'm sure there are plenty of others.

Also, as EEAP alludes further up, if you alienate a manager by asking too many awkward questions, you risk losing these interviews altogether. I'd be surprised if it's in AJ's contract to give them.

''They often ask good questions but AJ just gives the same answer, need to defend better, score goals, put wins together blah blah''

What would you expect him to say, Nick? The questions tend to be much the same every week, tbf - just dressed up slightly differently. If we lose a game, as we did on Saturday, because we conceded poorly defended goals and failed to convert any chances, what exactly can the manager say?

If he made some extravagant claim, which was palpably untrue, we'd all be on his case....... He tells it as he sees it and you're still not happy.

You've obviously never heard interviews where the manager has cut the interview short, with a parting shot along the lines of "I told you I wouldn't be answering any questions relating to....." It's understandable when the interviewer wants to stray off the game and asks about a different issue. Jose's particularly good at that, but he's by no means the only one.
