    I obviously hope he does well and i'd be happy if he was appointed but i think you're miles off with the comment about going through stuff mate.

    He will be under pressure like he's never experienced at Celtic and the size of the job will be a shock to him. It will come down to how he handles that side of it because there is no doubt he's a top coach.

    Eddie Howe done and dusted by all accounts. Don't know if we have to wait until the stock exchange is open to announce it or not so might be Tuesday.

    If true delighted with that.

    Thought it was a pretty good performance last night and with more cutting edge we would have doubled the score line. A lot of decent football played and Falkirk weren’t allowed a chance to cause any real problems.

    Turnbull was excellent again.

    No announcement today despite the predictions. Got a feeling we'll be waiting until the end of the season.

    I wouldn’t mind him taking over after the end of the season, but it would ease a lot of the fans concerns if we at least knew he was definitely taking the job.

    If we can get Elyonoussi for £5-6m would you take him?

    It’s a yes from me.

    If we can get more consistency from him he would prove a bargain at that price.

    Yes but don't see Southampton accepting less than £10m

    We won’t pay that for him.

    I know. Hence I would take him at £5-6m but don't see him leaving for that

    Yes, but he’s on £60k a week at Saints so that will be an issue. He’s been a bit inconsistent this season but still been one of our better performers and we’d have been even worse off without him.

    He's a player i'd keep but probably too expensive.

    Might not be a player that suits an incoming managers shape or style though.

    The way this season has gone the result today almost seems inevitable, but we have played well in recent weeks and have looked a lot more organised.

    I think we need a performance from Edouard to give us a chance of getting a result, otherwise it will probably be similar to previous matches against them with us playing well but not making the most of territorial advantage.

    Would be happy with the same starting eleven as it was against Livingston.

    Predictable outcome and the nature of the defeat sums up the entire season.

    Plenty possession and chances with nothing to show for it and the usual poor defending at the other end.

    There are players who are good enough but who are currently in the wrong movie, but there are others who shouldn’t be in the movie at all and should be shipped out in the summer.

    More so than at any other time, we need some character in the team. With Brown on his way out we need some guys who won’t accept poor results in the manner that many have done this season.

    But Browns there now and he’s accepted them this season.

    I wouldn’t say he has ‘accepted’ it.

    Also, one season out of ten suggests he has done more than enough not to be tarred with the same brush as most this season.
