If, BIG IF, I take over, who should ve my number 2? New person or seasoned coach?

I'm looking at a 4 man dream to run the whole show:

George Easton as Chief Executive, John Lambie as Director of Football, Big Wull as Manager and Davie McParland as First Team Coach.

If you want a number 2, there are many posters on here who are full of sh*t. As discussed earlier, my dog Wee Dug must be a prime candidate for that.

And mind the ref years ago 'tiny warton' i think his name was

"Tiny Wharton" - a giant of a referee in every respect! ! 

I remember a game at Firhill with Wharton as the Referee.  A Thistle player in possession passed the ball under pressure from an opponent who had a "fly" kick at the Thistle player after the ball had been passed. Although play had moved on Wharton had let his eye linger for a moment on the two players and saw the little kick. He dropped back and without stopping the game said something to the opponent. End of incident and the opponent played a very clean game thereafter. 

It emerged later that Wharton had said to the opponent "Mr (surname) I saw that. Do anything like that again and you will be off. Do you understsand? 

The player replied Yes Mr Wharton! 

Those were the days!

Now the player would probably reply with something like "F*** off,  ya fat "f***in' dobber," and his manager would defend him by saying the referee singled him out unfairly for unduly harsh treatment, while ignoring much worse from  players in the other team.

Had a good chuckle yesterday when I read about Danny Lennon's pre match team talk ... he said to the Clyde players "you lot believed in Santa Claus for 8 to 10 years, so go and believe in yourselves for 90 minutes"

Tonights team talk. "Get a couple of early goals, our confidence is high so keep pressing up the park. Word will get to cove and falkirk and their bottles will crash.  We will be top of the league tonight, I 100% trust you all...now go out and do it" then send them out to go top of the league.

As my teamtalk predicted, we went top of the league! And falkirk and cove's bottles crashed. However.....if we win the league I think 'my hat in the ring for the next manager/coach' my be flung out the ring!

I have noticed that performance has improved dramatically since you started to do the team talks. Coincidence ? I think not 

Thanks Dick Dastardly. I just try and keep them somple and obvious really. Wish I could do the team talks...maybe remove the 2 assistant managers for me?

We have a Manager, Assistant Manager, Goalkeeping coach and a stats / training coach.

It's hardly overkill is it.

My friend manages a youth team in Germany and has more staff than that.

Then again, the Germans treat every playing level as they would the top.

Maybe that's why they're so good.

It only takes one Cook to spoil the broth as regards awarding Thistle a goal when the ball crosses the opponent's goal line.
