Another one bites the dust

Well thats McCulloch been punted by Killie.

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/foot ... r-11270669

Roy McGregor seemingly listened to the discontent of the Ross County fans and punted McIntyre

Who can see Pedro lasting beyond Christmas over at Sevco

Is Alan Archibald on a shoogly nail at Thistle.

Meanwhile Canning confounds everyone by still being in his job.

Its a funny old game

Archibald will soon be wishing he had taken the job in England although Canzo may just give him a lifeline in 3 weeks time

If Martin was ever going to be relieved of his duties it would have happened after Annan and the 8-1 Celtic farce or 5-0 Partick or,
Well anyway as we all know it's hypothetical as no matter what,it won't happen.
Accies as a Club are nothing like these teams who fire their managers as these teams have actual ambitions to progress on the pitch whereas we are happy to tag along under the 'give youth a chance/community Club/save our junkies/pub team banner.
Make no mistake,WHEN we go down we ain't coming back.

You are almost certainly correct, at some point we WILL get relegated because consistently competing in a division where your home support is half that of the next least supported team is hugely difficult. Again you are correct being promoted back again is very difficult as Hibs, St Mirren, Dundee United, Falkirk etc.. have proven (although I remember similar sentiments last time we were relegated under BR).

So there is a possibility that we will slide down the divisions and look back at the last few years and our most sustained period of top division football as halcyon days. When / if that happens you can look back at your role with fondness - moaning complaining and talking down the club at every opportunity.

100% correct.

It's also almost 100% certain that at least one of the clubs who have sacked their manager will finish 11th or 12th. And if we went down that path it could well be us.

In August, we did well: we played 4 league games, won 2, drew 1, lost 1, points = 7

In September, we didn't: we played 4 league games and lost them all, points = 0, but with a much tougher fixture list, playing 3 of the current top 4.

In October, we have a decent chance again: home games v Motherwell & Partick, aways to Dundee & Ross County. Points to be won. Let's see how this month works out.

I am really struggling to see where we are going to pick up points soon, even with the next 4 fixtures

Motherwell playing well enough and Louis Moult will have a field day against ourdefence

Thistle seem to playing fairly well just not getting the breaks. Archibald will be under severe pressure if he loses this one, which may give them the dge

Dundee blowing hot and cold, mainly cold, win against Hearts may give them confidence

Ross County new manager giving the team a boost, players out to impress him

Maximum 2 points out of 12

Its a good job Killie are pi5h
