Brrr freezing today, thought we did okay in bits of game, but defence still looking shaky.
Big improvement today from McGinn (thought he was miles off pace at Perth), Cosgrove led line well & was a continual menace to Saints.
St.Mirren actually played quite well & arguably deserved a draw, great penalty save by big Joe.
Hard fought 3 points.
M.o.t.m Cosgrove.

As soon as a chairman starts picking the team the club is fucked.

Same scenario as when accountants run businesses Kow

Both correct but with provisos;

If the chairman can't communicate with and question the manager, the culture is wrong.

In the case of a manager being incompetent, the simple questioning of him may be enough to expose his inadequacy, particularly if his insecurity makes him take it the wrong way, an insecurity rightly held. Thousands of fans can often see reality better than the shit manager can and a chairman by nature has skills which most of us "ordinary folk" don't have so there is no reason why he wouldn't be able to see it too.

Accountants running businesses is more clear cut (as a concept to discuss and define).

The "model" of many successful businesses includes a "triangle" of three people at the top of the "pyramid", a Managing Director flanked by two "employees", the Sales Director and the Finance Director. That's simplistic I know, as there are operational, logistical, HR, legal, administrative and other requirements which can be represented at director level but the bottom line is that without sales (bringing the money in) and financial management (making sure it's not pissing out the back door), the ship's fucked.

The M.D. normally comes with either a sales or finance background. If he's too tight arsed a bean-counter, he will inhibit revenue. If he's too oriented towards sales without understanding the value of fiscal prudence, it will die a totally different death.

It's going to be a 5 nil humping.

Didn’t see the game, just the highlights, and that was my take, thought we looked terrible defensively. Don’t see Wednesday being a fun evening.
