    For various reasons we either didn't want him or he wasn't interested in coming at the times when there was a vacancy or potential vacancy so the possibility has never got past first base.

    As we are just six points behind them with a game in hand and there is currently no vacancy I think we can view the speculation as entirely that - let's see how they, he and we do over the whole season.

    They're now only 2 points behind Hearts, with the same number of games played.

    St Johnstone are only 3 behind Hearts and are going great guns


    The combined income of both clubs is probably smaller that that of either Hearts or Hibs, so they have to be applauded for how well they're doing.

    They do and St Johnston's position puts our last game against them into some perspective.

    According to Clarke he had a brief phone call with Petrie back in 2010 but it went no further than that:

    https://www.scotsman.com/sport/steve...hoice-1-826973

    I'd have been very surprised if we'd managed to appoint him back then to be honest. His next post was assistant at Liverpool before going on to manage West Brom, Reading and Villa. Pretty sure family connections helped Killie to land him (think his family are Killie fans) but it's proved to be a brilliant appointment. He's got massive experience with many clubs down south and will likely move on to bigger things again.
    Clarke dodges a bullet in 2010, I doubt he would have been able to have the same success as he is with Killie given how shambolic and amateur we were as a club then and in the proceeding years.

    Hopefully there isnít a vacancy for a long time yet, but if/when Lennon leaves Clarke would be my choice as a replacement.

    His background in football is fantastic, he is a smart Football manager. Is he a great guy to listen to post match? No. Is he about the most boring guy you might see on TV? Maybe. Does he have an ability to get the best out of a group of players who might be average? I think he is proving that he can. From his TV interviews I canít work him out but he is clearly a very good man manager. He is doing an amazing with the resources he has. Would be quite happy if he ended up our next boss if we needed a new one for whatever reason.
    Completely agree.

    Iíve let my mind wander to who will be our next manager over the last week or so and whilst he ticks pretty much every box I really struggle to look past how boring he comes across. I wonder if itís maybe his lack of charisma thatís made it difficult for him to get a better job down south.

    He has done an absolutely unbelievable job at Killie but I hear him talking and I just canít understand how someone with such a monotone voice can possibly inspire a group of players?! I just donít get it but heís obviously doing something right.

    I started to wonder if itís maybe a touch of the Terry Butchers and heís the right person for the right club at the right time or maybe heís got a brilliant assistant who is the real brains behind the operation but heís had good success at other clubs so heís obviously just very good at what he does.

    I dare say I could stomach his boring post match interviews if he had us winning every week.......

    Its interesting because I like Lennon and his honesty, he wears his heart on his sleeve. As a fan itís nice to hear a manager tell it like it is after the team fail to show up. He talks like a fan and we all lap it up because he is a Ďwinnerí and wonít take failure. How many times does that get said amongst us? Reality is that no manager ever doesnít mind getting beat. The only difference is how that gets put across to the press.
    What someone might say to the press and how they perform as a manager are two very different things. Steve Clark is obviously proving that point right now.

    Tommy Wright has really sorted that Saints team since they got that serious doing from Celtc.

    More money, higher profile, better route back to English football and the honour of managing your country.
    More money maybe, honour definitely but the others I'd say he's best staying where he is.

    Should have been appointed Scotland manager, easily the best manager in the league since he took over at the pie palace.

    Since being promoted St Johnstone have finished above us in all but two seasons (the season after being promoted, and last season) and have won the Scottish Cup, same as us. No excuses for not being better than them.
