It does make the Scott Lindsey appointment even more baffling though. Because if it wasn't because he was a cheap option then what the fuck were they thinking?

Continuity?  I guess it you think our last season finish was respectable considering the state we were in that summer, you might think that with a more stable foundation, better opportunities for recruitment that if you keep the coaching situation as consistent as possible you stand a chance of going a few steps better this season.

It probably felt like  a safe don't rock the boat appointment.

Is anyone else feeling nervous that we are flirting with Morris and may lose out on both him and Artell?
yes...

but I don't think it gets leaked unless you are confident.

assuming we are the leakers

If that happens then so be it i suppose. It sounds like Artell was ready to go and Morris has come back and said he is keen. Fingers crossed it's either of them

Picaretta now tweeting ‘once a red always a red’ with pictures of him at STFC. Random timing

Yeah, also reading between the lines on various places and a few assumptions on my part - but I get the impression Lindsey was given the credit for ‘managing’ McKirdy who is a character to say the least.

I dunno at what point we knew we were going to sell him but if it literally wasn’t until the Hibs bid then you’d think he would have been our talisman again this season and would needed to be treated the same off the pitch as last year.

Admittedly a lot of guess work and filling in the blanks on my part

Have we ever had an internal appointment that was even remotely successful? I can't think of one.

Michael Skubala would be a good profile for an Assistant Manager.
Especially technically and with the current STFC model. Would fit right in.

If Jody Morris seems/ed an unrealistic target but now appears to be "the one", no reason why someone like Skubala couldn't be part of that senior coaching set up - but only if Town are serious about developing youth.

Would definitely be the right type of "speculate to accumulate" style appointment.

You know I started writing a closing sentence that referred to the Gorman appointment but then deleted it.
