Bad blow. I was hoping TC would be the next to pick up the reigns at the PBS when Plan F wraps up.

:agree: Same here. He tried his best at Hibs, and while I wouldn't be mad keen on him coming back at all, I certainly wish him well.

The Directorate of Sporting Charleroi and Mr. Tommy Craig have reached an agreement so that it resume for the core pro sports this Saturday.



After several days of discussions and reflections, Tommy agreed to initial an agreement of 1.5 years as coach of the main RCSC.



Tommy advantage to know our club, our players and our league and that had left good memories in our structure.

First impressions of Tommy at RCSC.be :


"I'm very glad I saw offered the post of coach of the RCSC.

I thank the Directorate club my confidence and hopefully we'll have better sports results quickly.

I have the advantage of well-known strength and I think I can improve outcomes with this group by working hard.

Was it Katie or Simon Brown that said Tommy Craig was basically 'in charge' at Hibs when JC was boss?

So you're saying that Collins only won the CIS cup with a Mowbray team that was managed by Tommy Craig? :devil:

It's an arguable position to hold. :devil:

Just remember - whatever was going on at ER while Six-Pack was around, Mixu was reckoned to be a mjor improvement....

.... for a while, anyway. :rolleyes:

I see his command of the English language doesnae get any better. Maybe he was eating an apple during that interview.

Sorry - you're right enough about the Celtic result, but I don't reckon Toamy as a coach. Charleroi are going to need all the luck going with him in charge.

IIRC Six-Pack bailed on the 20th December, we drew 1-1 with Celtic on the 22nd, then we lost 3 in a row - Kilmarnock, Rangers and St Mirren, all 1-2. Mixu came in for the Scottish Cup tie against ICT, which we won 3-0.

At least, that's my recollection. Toamy never won us a game.
