He’s never going to get sacked after a promotion, should never have been appointed in the first place.

He is like the manager equivalent of Walker. Was great in his first spell, quickly went off the boil, done fuck all better since leaving the club but then was given the job again because he used to play here.

You can see it already - promoted this season and finishing lower-mid table during his time in the Premiership. 6th, 7th and 8th written all over it.

I honestly think we were in such a bad way it was a logical appointment. I don't think they could risk getting a Stendel equivalent in.

Managers returning to a club rarely works out.

Whatever goodwill the Hibs game gave him is wearing pretty thin now. Conceding soft goals on a weekly basis, going to pieces against any half-decent side in this joke league, it really does not bode well for next season.

The amount of goals we're conceding against very poor opposition is a massive worry.

Should have been emptied earlier as a player - should be emptied now as a Manager.

We should have the cigars out strolling this league. The fact we're not is down to him. His persistence in playing his mates is costing us. Berra and Walker are sadly past it and should be binned. He won't though. Monty Oh Well

Na it wasn't the time for a gamble. Signing a guy who's won the league twice is a sound approach.

Problem is we have been very uninspiring and I think it's what most folk feared with Robbie. I just see him as a guy to get us out of the Levein shadow and then we can move on once we're an established Premier League side. It's hard to say how much of the performances are due to Neilson or the current situation and some of the cunts left over from the Levein reign.

No quick fix here unfortunately.

He isn't getting a tune out of these players. Even when we win it's slow, pedestrian football.

But we can't keep punting managers midseason and asking the new one to work with the same players the old one brought in. It doesn't work.

You’re not going to move out of Levein’s shadow by bringing back a Levein disciple to lead the transition.

Genuinely depressing to consider that I've spent around a third of my time on this planet being irritated by Robbie Neilson's presence.

He needs to stay for just now, but we need to stop playing the dead wood like Berra & Walker.

I hope today is a rocket up their arse for the rest of the season, but I doubt it! Monty Oh Well

I find it strange you see Neilson as the guy to get us out of leveins shadow tbh.  It’s exactly the opposite of what I see happening, surely if you want to put that behind us you get rid of the players and managers that seen us put in that situation, not sign them up again.

Not on board with the idea that Neilson was the only sensible appointment to get us out the championship, it was just the most convenient for budge.
