Has just been made favourite at 6/5. The shortest price anyone has been so far. Please, please, no. Not him. Please.

Petrie was backed to around 1/2 in the summer. I wouldn’t read too much into this. Small market, so small bets make a big difference in terms of odds. It’s not any kind of inside info.

Kenny was on The Open Goal Podcast talking the job up a storm which will have resulted in a fair few lumping on him so that`ll be why he is favourite.

Im sure he has been or will be interviewed but I really dont want it to happen.

They base these on the amount of bets received on a candidate. If I were to lump 20 quid on Craig Levein (16/1) you’d probably see him shoot right up the table.

Hopefully, in reality, he is just being interviewed out of kindness and wonmt be considered if they have already interviewed John Robertson. We really cannot be gambling our season on a Sevconian mouth piece that has managed 7 games his whole career. Would sooner have Yogi and Rice in ahead of him.

Why is RM getting blamed this , He got abuse for appointing PG,then he got abuse for not sacking PG , then tyres were slashed, then when he did sack him after 11 league games he now gets pelters by holding interviews for new replacement.


I don't want McArthur to leave our club but the amount of ****€ written on the pages no one can blame him.

I also hoped in the summer that when Grant was bookies favourite, it surely couldn’t be right. He’d be bad, the board wouldn’t be so daft, probably just Celtic fans tipping him up and putting a wee bet on…..

I’ll admit it’s the rovers job that scares me about Yogi. I never particularly liked him before that anyway but I’m honestly starting to think he might be an option if the alternative is Kenny Miller. The thing is with yogi, he doesn’t have a job so give him it til end of season and reevaluate then. Same goes for Jimmy mac. Either would be streets ahead of Miller.

I think that is important that the board appoint a candidate that will get the fans on board and allow the new man a fighting chance. Another PG style of appointment will not achieve that and a lot of the names being bandied about are in that category.

The amount of managers getting scoffed at is incredible. We are bottom of the championship i doubt very much we are going to end up with Mourinho or Klopp.

Levein - get us out the mire no doubt - scoffed at
Yogi - one bad job - scoffed at
Dick - didn`t keep an already relegated Pars up 20 years ago - scoffed at
Kenny Miller - has only managed a handful of games -scoffed at

I actually fear regardless of who comes in they aren`t going to get any time.

Suppose it`s how you view hits or misses. I`d say his only real miss was the Rovers. Hibs at the tail end, Hartlepool already pretty much relegated when he took over. Inverness unbelievable job.

Btw I personally don`t want Yogi but folk need to realise that the state we`re in means that whoever we end up with is going to have a blotch or 2 on the CV somewhere.

From wiki

Falkirk
Hughes landed his first managerial job in 2003, when he and Owen Coyle were appointed co-managers of Falkirk. Coyle subsequently left Falkirk to join Ian McCall at Dundee United, leaving Hughes in sole charge. He then guided Falkirk to promotion to the Scottish Premier League in 2005.[6] As well as maintaining their SPL status for four seasons, Hughes led Falkirk to the 2009 Scottish Cup Final.[6]

Hibernian
Hughes was appointed Hibernian manager in the 2009 close season.[6] He led the club to Europa League qualification in his first season in charge, as they finished in fourth place in the SPL.[7] Poor results at the start of the following season, however, led to fans jeering their own team.[8] Hughes left the club by mutual consent on 4 October following a 2–0 defeat against St Johnstone.[9]

Livingston
Hughes interviewed for the Swindon Town job in the 2011 close season.[10] Hughes was appointed manager of Livingston on 14 February 2012.[11]

Hartlepool
After nine months at Livingston, Hughes moved to English club Hartlepool United.[10][12] He took the job when the team were in the midst of a 20-match-run without a win.[13] Despite an upturn in form that earned him a Manager of the Month award, Hartlepool were relegated to Football League Two.[13] Hughes publicly stated his desire to remain at the club, but he was sacked on 9 May 2013.[13]

Inverness Caledonian Thistle
Hughes was appointed manager of Scottish Premiership club Inverness Caledonian Thistle on 4 December 2013 on a two-and-a-half-year contract.[14] Soon after this appointment, Hughes led Inverness CT to their first major final after beating Hearts in a penalty shoot-out in the semi-final of the 2013–14 Scottish League Cup. Inverness drew 0–0 against Aberdeen in the final, but, after extra-time, lost the tie 4–2 on penalties.

At the beginning of season 2014–15, Caley Thistle`s excellent early performances led him to receive the award of SPFL Manager of the Month for August.[15] He followed this by also winning the award for January 2015, as his Inverness side continued to impress.[16] In April 2015, Hughes led Caley Thistle to their first ever Scottish Cup final after a controversial 3–2 win over favourites, Celtic, and at the end of the month he was shortlisted for PFA Scotland Manager of the Year.[17] On 3 May, Hughes was announced as the winner of the managerial award, ahead of Ronny Deila, Derek McInnes and Robbie Neilson.[18] Further success soon followed as he guided Inverness to a highest ever league finish – 3rd place, and with it, a milestone debut in European competition for the club.[19] The accolades continued, with Hughes winning the SFWA Manager of the Year award, to complete the managerial `double` for 2014–15.[20] He led the club to their first major silverware with a Scottish Cup final success over his old club Falkirk in May 2015 to conclude the club`s most successful season.[21]

Hughes left Inverness at the end of the 2015–16 season.[22]

Raith Rovers
Hughes was appointed manager of Scottish Championship club Raith Rovers in February 2017.[23] The club finished ninth in the Championship, and were relegated to League One after they lost in the play-offs to Brechin City. Immediately after the game, Raith announced that Hughes and his assistant Kevin McBride would be leaving the club.[24]

Ross County
On 21 December 2020, Scottish Premiership club Ross County appointed Hughes as their manager until the end of the season.[25] He guided the club to a tenth-place finish in the Premiership, avoiding relegation, and he left at the end of his contract.[26]



So the highs are pretty high but the lows are pretty low! I can think of far worse candidates but would still prefer John Robertson long-term

plenty to consider. Do we go short term and "limp" to end of the season with a short term appointment and again look to rebuild next summer or do we look for a long term appointment now, give new boss 6/7 weeks until Jan to assess squad and look to back him and pay up contracts etc for anyone who is assessed by manager that they wont be part of his plans.

Regardless of what happens off field which presume will now be next week lets see if the clear the air talks have cleared any lingering issues and we see a unified squad tomorrow who fight for 90 minutes and grab the 3 points.

Hughes is a slightly better version of Peter Grant.

Puts his philosophy above the team, anyone remember him forcing his Livingston goalkeeper to play it short? Despite his fullbacks being marked? Absolutely bizarre behaviour.

He did do well to win the SC with Inverness, however it was with a very good squad put together by Butcher. He seems to have good short term success, but his transfer dealings seems to leave allot to be desired.

Getting back on topic, I can't see any reason for Kenny Miller to get anywhere near the manager's job. What experience does he have? Seven games with Livi, was it? 🤣😂🤣

're John Hughes, if John Robertson doesn't want it, we could do worse. As da no 1 has posted further up, his CV is hardly the worst among the prospective candidates. Yes, he committed a cardinal error at the San Starko by calling out his underperforming (and arguably overpaid) squad in public. I imagine being a 100 %er as a player himself, he expected his players to display a similar commitment. When they arrived on the Monday morning in their fancy cars, with not a care in the world, after a 5-0 mauling at Love St v fellow relegation strugglers, St Mirren, something snapped in his head and he gave that ill advised interview on the club website.

Of course, the players were unhappy about that - the truth hurts - and effectively downed tools. They really should still have been able to save themselves against a mediocre Brechin who established an unwanted negative record the following season in the Championship.

If Robertson doesn’t want it then Yogi is probably the best of the rest. There is no way Petrie is taking this if we are in a relegation battle.

Need a safe pair of hands at this time so Miller and Petrie are both risks, Yogi enough experience to fit the bill at this moment.

If fans accept this season is now an avoid relegation job, then that’s something Petrie should achieve and his status with us would only increase and set him up well for the next season.

If fans expect us to qualify for the playoffs still minimum then he would need to give it a miss.

That being said, he doesn’t want the gig anyway.

I don't doubt you, Grant, but d'you not think that might be down to Levein managing a higher calibre of clubs? Apart from Hibs, Yogi has largely managed "diddy" clubs.

e.g. Winning the SC with ICT is a greater achievement than winning it with Hearts or Dundee United, in my humble one.

Kenny Miller talks a good game on the Podcast but seems a little unlikable - just cant put my finger on it

Clearly Journo friends are helping him out and planting his name. TBH i was a little surprised how much he knew about us and the players etc clearly researched well or likely `briefed` well by researchers and friends

‘Hughes is a slightly better version of Peter Grant.

Puts his philosophy above the team, anyone remember him forcing his Livingston goalkeeper to play it short? Despite his fullbacks being marked? Absolutely bizarre behaviour.

He did do well to win the SC with Inverness, however it was with a very good squad put together by Butcher. He seems to have good short term success, but his transfer dealings seems to leave allot to be desired.


Think this is a perfect summary of Hughes. Couldn’t see him making it a success with the Pars.

John Robertson for me and, despite the issues, wouldn’t mind seeing Petrie at EEP. Would definitely have the fans support.

Sacking a manager who went 12 games without a victory is never the right decision?

You’re on your own with that one.

There is this entitlement fans think they have though that we should be up there challenging all the time, we aren’t a big team anymore, we haven’t been for a long time, this is our level now, we have to accept it, give managers time to build their own team and implement their philosophy if our fortunes are to turn, but…we have to bring the right manager in.

We’re a mid table Championship side, Grant blew his trumpet too much and couldn’t even achieve that.

“It doesn`t matter who gets the job, the bar has been set, no wins in 10 or so matches ...your bumped.”

That’s a perfectly reasonable standard for me. Nearly every single manager of our club won inside 10 games, those that didn’t were miserable failures.

Grant got 12 chances to win a league game. Only Kenny failed to get a win in that time.

Let’s not claim grant didn’t get time. He got far too much time, and that’s why we’re bottom with whoever comes in not having a chance for weeks to get better players in.

That's one extreme to the other though. Grant coming in blowing his own trumpet and talking about automatic promotion helped him dig his own grave, especially considering people weren't keen on him in the first place. You can't come in, say that then not win in 12 games, or look like you have no idea how to set a team up and expect a lot of leeway.

If the next guy comes in, tempers expectations a bit, says he wants us out of the relegation places and then to build from there, that's a message that probably buys time, especially if he says it might take time and calls for a bit of patience.

You'll always get a minority of numpties that will want someone out if they don't hit the ground running but most fans will probably be fine with it.

My choice would be Dick Campbell and/or Stewart Petrie. I think supporters would embrace these guys being ex Pars. Dick Campbell won’t take any nonsense from below or above him and that’s what we need just now.

On the subject of Kenny Miller. Would it really be the worst thing in the world if he was to be appointed? Strikes me as being an intelligent guy and that PR wouldn`t be an issue. Playing career that should command respect and doesn`t seem to have a big ego. Not denying it wouldn`t be a gamble appointing a relative newbie but can`t think of an appointment that wouldn`t be a gamble - what guarantee of success does Robertson bring? Also, whoever is appointed needs to be cut some slack. Nobody is going to turn this squad into world beaters and I can`t see all that much changing in 12 months until the new man gets his own players in. Pep, Sir Alex and Klopp all started somewhere.

Which part of the stadium were these gents hid... err I mean sitting in, parsfan 97?

If Kenny Miller gets the job, I hope, like all Pars fans, that he's an unqualified success and has all us doubters eating humble pie. I can't escape the feeling that a hiring a man who has managed a team for a miserly total of 7 games is a huge gamble for a club sitting at the bottom of the table, without a win in 13 games.

Surely, we want to maximise our chances of staying in the Championship ( the promotion ship has long since sailed) by appointing a manager with a proven track record in the game.

Giving the job to Miller is akin to hiring someone who can barely write his own name as a school teacher.....

Given where we are and at one point were even further adrift on sat afternoon we might aswell give the new guy until the end of the season at least and if we go down give him the start of the following season. We`re in terrible shape and too many players will be impossible to move on in jan and some are contracted until the following season and might not have relegation clauses!

Any points on the board between now and January would be a bonus and then lets hope he can bring a few players in and if they improve the team and we look better thats pretty much the best we can hope for regardless of league position.

The players we need in January wont be cheap if we can even find them at all.....

I cant imagine many managers are will come here on a contract until the end of the season or sign on for longer knowing they will be gone if we go down so we might as well stick with them.
