  1. 1. Is Ally the man for the job?



Recommended Posts

I don't think the board can afford to terminate his contract even if they wanted to.

I'd expect it would cost something north of one million pounds to let the management team go.

Every pound will be a prisoner at the moment but if results continue to go the wrong way then it becomes unavoidable.

If you could have a chat with our manager what questions would you ask him , as I'd love to know what he see's that we don't .

1. Why does McCulloch get a game at centre half

2. Why is McLeod always shunted out wide.

3. Why does black get to take free kicks when nearly all his attempts are pathetic .

4. Why do our players look so slow and always take too many touches on the ball or turn back instead of taking a man on.

5. Why do we create so little . (Probably answered that myself with number 4)

6. Why did Kyle hutton gets new contract.

7. What does McDowell and durrant do , surely the 3 of them can't agree with these tactics and team selections.

See this is why Smith is the perfect example. You can be mates with the players and friendly with them, but at the same time you need to show them exactly who the boss is. Gazza always said Smith was the best manager he worked under, he could to him for anything, but it didn't stop Smith from giving him the boot in the baws he needed at times.

McCoist needs to do the same. But he's just not capable. I'd have forced they players to stay on that pitch at full time yesterday until every fan at Ibrox had left.

What Nicky Law did yesterday too was a disgrace. He should be fined and made to apologise for that.

Won't happen though - secretly, McCoist has probably consoled him for the torment caused...

This I'm afraid was the Problem with big Ham and Egg when he took over.

When JG took over he was Friends with the whole Team he managed and it was a recipe for disaster too.

JG was hard as nails and strict as fuck on the Pitch but couldn't take that on as amanager.

The pals act needs to end and Fucking Gullane Sands should be introduced to these Slackers.

I'm sick to the Teeth of it now and contemplating not returning until Mcoist and his cohorts are gone.

Its breaking my Heart to say that as its the only way Mcoist will be removed.

Been watching this now since we came back from Admin and the Soul has been ripped out our Club by the antics of this Management Team and players.

No discipline a lack of fight and ambition and failure to recognise what this club means to the Fans.

I understand your anguish, but what's the difference between staying away from Ibrox until

Ally goes and staying away until the hedge funds go?

For what it's worth I'm beginning to accept that Ally may not be managerial material, but I'd be very reluctant to see him depart just now. He's the only real link we have left with the past and I trust him to do his damnedest to resist any moves by the Board to sell players or downgrade Murray Park in any way. Let's sort out the club's ownership problem first. Get the right people into the Boardroom. And then think about the football management side of things.

After the blatant incompetence shown by the manager, throw in wagesgate and sharesgate, fans being treated with contempt and wasting of resources........we are to apologise for wanting the perpetrator removed ?

There are now stories doing the rounds that no reductions in wages have been applied, if this is also true it makes Wallace's position untenable too.

This better be fucking bullshitt my good man.

For the sake of Mr Wallace.

Ally McCoist should be judged on the present as a Manager and not on the past.

As a Manager he has benefited through both the shares he was effectively given and the remuneration package he accepted that was out of all kilter with where the Club was sitting financially and league wise at the time. This would perhaps be palatable (just) if he had shown he was capable of delivering. But he has failed to do that. Yes he took a pay cut (with caveats) but even that pay cut as drastic as it was still represents a level of payment that is worlds away from where we are.

Football wise his management has been turgid. Yes he gained the promotions. But what should have been spectacular was brutal. Achieved through Big Spending against teams that his personal salary would likely enough have covered their wage bill. The Ramsdens Cup performance was a disgrace.

He has the Club over a barrel. Simply as things stand it is very difficult for the Club to get rid of him and the rest of his assistants in our current financial situation. The Club is looking for a fresh cash injection. They would probably need a similar cash injection to fund paying off McCoist. Which brings us to Green. McCoist should be grateful to Green for effectively giving him the initial package that has placed him in such an impregnable position. Now the Club needs money Green is back (apparently in the picture) and our poor footballing performance is once again according to Ally- Greens fault.

FFS both these guys have profited hugely out of Rangers- they are the ultimate profiteering tag team. I agree with Ally on one thing- I too am sick of the side show. The performance on the side of the pitch is pathetic. Trying to blame yesterday's defeat on Green and bringing Sandy Jardines name into that argument was a leap of crassness far to far.

Is Ally McCoist going to be remembered as the man who bled Rangers dry. I sincerely hope not- because already I am beginning to have difficulties reconciling the great memories I have of McCoist the player with the man I see on the sidelines.

Ally is the equivilent of replacing the teacher with the class clown. How was anyone ever expected to take him serious. I feel bad for saying it, but ally knows he is finished with football if he walks...but that time is here.

Thanks.....that's the first I've properly laughed since yesterday!

If he demands a pay off package then he should never be welcomed back at Ibrox again. Look at Le Guen who refused his severance package despite being owed 2 years wages and he wasn't even a Rangers man.

McCoist has already made MILLIONS through our plight and continues to bleed the club dry despite it being painfully clear that he isn't up to the job.

Reasonable OP followed by the expected 'look at me, I tell it like it is' no airs and graces, salt of the earth crew.

You have to laugh at people that think being a smartarse (repeatedly) at the expense of a Rangers legend is reasonable.

Rangers legend or not, the people that pay thousands following their club have a right to give whatever opinion they like on McCoist.

It's easy to give an opinion without being abusive or childish or a smartarse. Even the most critical opinions. Very easy.

That by far should be his primary concern just now, he will not turn this team around but he can turn the fans hostile which would be a very bad thing to see. Better to say goodbye and have done with it than get caught in a corner and try to fight against an ever increasing backlash of fan emotion.

Legend as a player, shit manager. But as mentioned by folk earlier, still not a Cunt so pack that in please :P

To be fair he does deserve to be treated with dignity and respect he has earned that right as a player and through the difficult time in admin and in the lower leagues. He should never be treated like we would treat a tim. I think Ally time is up and for the love of the club I hope he does the right thing and realises he cant take this club any further and addresses the fans and explains why he is stepping a side all will respect him if he was to do this NOW.

I would hope it is for the sake of our sanity, several people who are said to be in the know have promulgated this thesis, along with another that says there are no wage cuts only a deferment, it is something that needs clearing up along with Brian's "bonus".

As you are aware the chap who is alleged to have raised the matter of Brian's bonus now claims he has no idea what the outcome of that was.

From SoT.

COLIN: "No way. We were very firm that we did not support him and wanted the 200K bonus repaid. I think it has been but never 100% sure how or if it was part of something.
