Honestly can't get over the position we're in. How the fuck has he not managed more than 2 league wins since December.

30 league games so far. 3 managers in charge. 4 wins between them.

W/D/L of them all:

Levein: 1-5-5 (11 games, 8 points)
MacPhee: 1-1-3 (5 games, 4 points)
Stendel: 2-5-7 (14 games, 11 points)

Cunt has 3 more points than Levein with 9 more available to him.

Whipping out the excel tables now because I've nothing better to do.

All managers managed to gather just 3 points from the 5 teams above us. Levein did it in 5 games. MacPhee in 2. Stendel in 7.

Pish. Utter pish.

By the split, Levein will only have been in charge for a 3rd of the season. Yeah he signed shit players. Yeah he ruined the morale in the club. But fuck if he's to blame for Stendel managing only 3 points from 21 from the bottom half teams.

Struggling to see how anyone defends him now. If it's any other manager they're being absolutely hounded.

He's not doing a good job but I find it hard to blame him for the run of losses when he first got the gig and we took weeks to even bring in his backroom staff Monty Oh Well No excuses for how shite we are now though Monty Ooh

Levein has had complete running of the football side for about 6 year now, you can’t just say “he was only in charge for a third of the season”.

What he’s put in place doesn’t just leave when he does, he hasn’t even left either!

Yeah have to keep in mind what he’s inherited but there is just no defence for him now. It is absolutely brutal.

There isn’t even a style of play either. This pressing thing just never happened. Players just look confused. The 6 up top chasing games every week isn’t the sign of a good manager, it’s what we would do.

1-3-3 since his whole backroom staff have come in and a full window to recruit, admittedly under restrained circumstances. But he got rid of a load of players and brought in new ones and still only managed 6 points from 21, dropping points to the likes of Kilmarnock, St Johnstone, Hamilton, and St Mirren.

5 points from his first 7 games. 6 points from the next 7 (with the full backroom staff and his own players).

I like when we consistently lose goals cos we've got 8 players up the park and then some cunt lumps a ball over the top of our centre halves.

Fed up with this pish about how hard he's got it.

Every manager that takes over a team at the bottom of the league has got it tough. If you're not up to it, don't take the job Vlad Shrug

Same. We were 10th when he took over though. Any manager we brought in would be expected to improve results, and he hasn't. At all.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still hopeful we'll stay up, maybe via the playoffs, and I wouldn't be against him staying manager after a full summer and preseason. He's been shite though.

Every manager has come out after the game saying the same thing.

Hertz are an easy touch playing this daft grape press. Fat Cunt

A lot has been made of the one in, one out thing. That is how most managers in the league have to operate. He got a 200k striker out of it and plays him left midfield. He knew the score when he came in and just hasn’t got going at all.

Cunt just had to beat St Mirren and we'd be above them Daniel Jos

It's actually so frustrating. Can't blame the results around us. Huge game, all he had to do was win. Totally bottled it.

Budge and Levein will have been desperate for him to fail. Mind her pus after we thumped Hibs. i think that attitude has filtered its way right through the club.

The players clearly havent taken to him. We got no honeymoon period when he came in which is usually a given when a team is so chronically underachieving. Order of blame for me is Levein, Budge, the players then Stendel.

Problem I've got with giving Stendel a big portion of the blame is that these players are clearly gutless cowards, and have been all season long. Maybe his tactics are a problem but I blame the players more. This is a battle and these cretins aren't up to it, that's the bigger problem for me.

Whose job is it to motivate gutless cowards? Think Jefferies would stand for it? The manager isn't just a tactician, he's meant to manage the players as well.

He seems to have motivated them for the three games prior to last night.

We were just totally out fought last night, was embarrassing how much more they wanted it. They were fucking shite though and even if the players had raised it 5/10% we’d have probably won it.

I don't disagree with that argument, and I'm not absolving him of any blame, but this attitude is coming from the very core of the club and has done for at least 18 months, if not longer.

Wasn’t at the game last night so can’t comment but I’ve not really had an issue with the fight in most games. We’ve had some decent come backs so I think the desire is there.

Problem has been so many goals from a simple long ball and falling behind in just about every game. Pretty sure we haven’t won once from a losing position this season.

The set up is all wrong.
