  1. Cardoso is costing us too many goals

    The pitch was largely responsible for that goal last night. Ball came off the surface like it was made of rubber.
  2. Just what the doctor ordered. We had a spell in the first half when we just blew them away. We need to find the confidence to play like that for longer periods. John was pure class 1st. half, Dorrans controlled the game easily. I'd ease McCrorie in rather than replace Cardoso.
  3. The beginning of the end!

    Should be the end of the end. Pedro is a complete clown who has wasted a fortune on shite players that are guiding us down to the bottom half of the SPL. I fully believe there is a rift because the few decent players we have can see right through him, and they care enough to tell the dud to his face. Of course there will be trouble.
  4. Pedro: Time to go?

    Got you. I was thinking it was December *facepalm*
  5. Pedro: Time to go?

    So there was no extra investment when we first came back up. How would that work, because we certainly didn't have any dramatic increase in spending after the Jan window, meaning that any 60% increase didn't occur until after Warburton was canned. It would mean we expected him to succeed in the SPL with zero extra investment compared to the championship. I'm really keen to find out the reality of how much we actually paid for Pena et Al, and how much they are being paid because outwith Morelos they seem to be either low calibre or troubled players. Either Pedro is doing the job with his hands tied behind his back financially or he is an absolutely terrible judge of players who mistakenly believed these guys were good enough.
  6. Pedro: Time to go?

    So, we paid less in the year ending Dec 2016 than in the year ending Dec 2015?
  7. Pedro: Time to go?

    I don't understand these accounts at all. It says we were paying more in 2015 for players than in 2016, yet King's bullet point says 60% increase to 10M. Or am I missing something?
  8. Pedro: Time to go?

    Figures I can find suggest 36M for them up to Dec 2016. I can't find player costs for us?
  9. Pedro: Time to go?

    How do you know the exact wages of these clubs?
  10. Pedro: Time to go?

    I'm beyond that. Couldn't give a fuck about this decent man suite. He's a con man who has cost us a fortune. The way he acts is making out we are all fools, and then there's posters on here defending his Mexican record. People that are a step nearer to some influence, and they are posting utter shite. Any idiot can see this guy is a total dud.
  11. Pena

    He is a skillful player no doubt, but his lack of fitness is an utter joke at this point. He's also painfully slow.
  12. What Need To Change/Remain?

    I think it would cost over 1M to get rid of Pedro and 1M to get McInnes. Then we have the problem of Pedro's Portuguese and Mexican players. I doubt we'll get anything back on Pena, and maybe a few hundred grand on the others. Hopefully Morelos will stay. We are looking at 10M investment, minimum. The board need to accept they've fucked up with Pedro ASAP, so we can start a proper rebuild with a real manager.
  13. Pena, Candeias and Hodson

    We stand to lose 2 million bucks if we let him go.
  14. Dave King

    I don't buy this theory at all. Occam's razor says that the board have made a monumental fuck up with an utterly shite manager, nothing more nothing less. You're saying that IF we have spent 8 million compared to St Johnstone and their ten bob team, it makes no odds as it requires more to catch them. I'm saying the board could reasonably expect FAR better for this kind of outlay. I'd also get our players are on well above the rest of the teams' wages. I just think Pedro is a terrible manager.
  15. Pedro: Time to go?

    It's pretty important because if Pena was 2 million, I'd have to question the integrity of those involved in the transfer.
