Definitely the best appointment they could have made, will be interesting to see how he fares with the blazers at the RFA.

I still would have preferred Moyes

Far more tested as a manager at a higher level

Really? Tested and failed I'd have said. I'd rather have a manager on the up rather than one doing the rounds. He hasn't been able to hold onto a job for more than a year since leaving Everton. Surely there's more to management than just having a had a job at some good clubs once? He doesn't seem to have been able to adapt his style in the last decade in order to get the best out of a team, with his early PNE and Everton success now very much the exception. I'd be very underwhelmed if I were a Tims fan with them being linked with him. I'd rather have Lennon.

Clarke has had experience as an assistant at Chelsea and Liverpool and had a degree of success with West Brom, before he got the tin tack after a poor start to his second season.

The job he did at Killie was nothing short of remarkable. He inherited a team from Elbows McCulloch who were one of the poorest teams I ever saw grace the field at Pittodrie (the fuckers still got a draw against us that day though) and who I think most folk had tipped for relegation that season to a team who finished in the top 6 last season and finished 3rd this season and all done with a far smaller budget than us, Hibs and Hearts and lost one of their best players to us at the halfway point.

I hope DM was at least spoken to about the role as he deserved a crack at it also, but the appointment of Clarke is one of the few decision the SFA have made in many a decade I have agreed with and I think he was the standout candidate, with our DM not far behind IMHO.

The best chance for Moyes for Scotland boss was just after he left Man Ure with something to prove, but sadly didn't happen.

St Mirren sack yet another manager as expected.

And even less surprisingly in come Jim Goodwin
I have a sneaky suspicion that he might step up to the mark and take St Mirren to the lofty height of mid table mediocrity
Steve warm his seat up
