The Brechin City Thread

I would like to think the board would be looking at a similar appointment to Kirk and Simmy. Contacts in the Dundee and surrounding leagues to snap up some gems kicking about that would strengthen the squad. 
 

Whilst Price and Weir would be an obvious option I am not sure that would be a like for like management team and no trophies in their spell at Elgin….. yes kept them in the league and a few play offs but not out of the league

 

Rumour mill for the early front runners, Maurice Ross, Gav Price, Phil McGuire and Kevin McNaughton

Based on what exactly?

Similar situation to when Kirk got the job. Did a great job with under 18 squad at St Johnstone, recently retired pro who played at top level and has a good understanding of Scottish players and game. Given the team spirit that we have I believe he would help the lads push on.

I agree - this season is vital for us to get back into the SPFL and I don't want to take a punt  on a newbie Manager

McInally has had seven attempts at playoffs in his career and has never gotten through them. Even if he gets you the title, he's the last manager you want in the playoffs.

Should just use the compo money and go get mckinnon from forfar. Yeah they are not doing great just now but he's a good manager with experience and his style of play is not much different to kirk maybe abit more attacking if any thing and he  loves the glebe

I have no doubt Ray is a good manager but let’s be honest he’s not setting the Heather on fire at Forfar with 1 win this season in the league and a bit or unrest in the changing rooms. Not sure he would fancy the travel.

The club is not exactly cash rich so it needs to be the right fit. Another younger manager who has the desire to get the best out of the squad and be resilient in defending the title would be my pick.

Announce Darren Dods 

He is currently Assistant Manager at Cumbernauld Colts who are sitting 2nd top in the Lowland League. He'll get a Manager job somewhere but not Brechin again.

Gavin Price had run his race at Elgin but the slide was mainly down to difficulty in recruitment for various reasons. He was one of our most successful managers and assistant with Jim Weir. He was well liked by all at the club. He has experience, knowledge of the HL scene as well as Tayside, Angus etc. He will also bring finance to the club. There are obviously loads of different candidates but I think it would be very short sighted of Brechin to dismiss him as a candidate, if he is, just on his last season at Elgin.
