Will, Will?? What's all this Will?
We ARE struggling and have been for months now. Even the most level headed realisticly minded supporters have figured that out now.
The manager may have the poorest budget in the league, but that is no excuse for the BOM to keep him now, unless Championship football, (or lower) is what they want for the Club.
There is a singular lack of ambition, given the results in 2016. I doubt that there is a poorer managed outfit in the Premiership
Don't really want to see a humiliation on Hogmanay, but, like many of you, I'll be there in more hope for a positive result, than the last coouple of months.[/quote]
We all knew another season in the top flight was always going to be a struggle. The league table is the only measure and the constant move to quote some other stat to suit an agenda is just nonsense. Canning kept us up last year, despite whatever the statos on here preferred as their stat of choice. Canning has us in the fight with 3 or 4 other clubs this season but again that doesn't suit many people. But I am content if the 'poorest' manager with the 'poorest' players overseen by the' poorest' board, with the 'poorest' budget keep us the top flight again.
Why are these better managed clubs not all leaving us in their wake? Why is one of them below us? By what measure is 3 points off 7th a crisis? Why is Killie getting done 3 nil to hearts the sign of a much better team than us after we went down 2 1 at Aberdeen?
This board has brought us only the second period of sustained top flight football EVER (and I think the first one was in a top division of 18)- so by what measure do you think they want us in the championship.
