    What would Heckingbottom need to do...

    to get those who want him out back on side.

    An improvement in the style of football?
    A derby win?
    A couple of exciting signings?
    Beating Killie to get to Hampden?

    Or is the situation completely unsalvageable in the eyes of some?

    Assuming that means a resignation, why?

    He's got credit in the bank from his work between February and April, which turned a potentially disastrous season into a decent one.

    1. Fast flowing attacking football, with a cutting edge.
    2. Take the fight to the OF
    3. Win far more than we lose using the style outlined in #1
    4. Inspire and connect with the fans in media communications.
    5. Sign the players we actually need.
    6. Sign players with pedigree at playing at an international level that we feel lucky to get.

    That would do it for me.
    All of the above is 'IMO'

    Win games against decent sides. Be a bit more positive.

    Itís really, really boring.

    Heís not coming back from this.

    Nothing is unsalvageable. However, I think it has went too far. He has completely taken us back to the team we were when we got relegated. He is passionless, has zero personality and look totally incapable of turning it around. Unacceptable.

    He's lost the fan base, as Pretty Boy said elsewhere, very rarely does a manager come back from that.

    He lost me after the 6-1 defeat to the huns. It wasn't just the result but the performance was really poor too. The man talks the talk but it's results that count and we've shipped 11 goals in our last three games. He's apparently been well backed by the board so I think they'll give him until the end of the season.

    Find a player like omeonga,who carried us into the top six last season.loved that guy!!
    Play allan centrally,that would give himself a fighting chance.

    Drop mallan for a bit,see if he gets a reaction.

    Sign a centre half comfortable on the ball.

    Try a 3-5-2 formation.

    But what if the fanbase are wrong? I sit among them week after week and have come to the conclusion that most of them haven't got a clue.

    How long does he live off a half-dozen games against mostly bottom 6 opposition for?

    After the game today on the way home, my daughter said she couldn't remember the last time she had come away from ER buzzing after a great entertaining win or game. Hecky has to start entertaining us or he'll be out the door pronto.

    if he had tried being honest with the support instead of feeding them bull5hit about a high pressing game and increased fitness levels.

    This for me. His signings are poor, his football style poor and his playing our best player out of position is a joke. Oh and take that big huddy Doidge with you when you go.

    The style of football is abysmal. We look unfit. We dont win enough 2nd balls in midfield. The defence is a disorganised shambles.


    Improve sharpish or change it. Dont let another season fritter away into midtable pish

    Not put Vela in Allan's position would be a start. I'm generally a "happy clapper" but that was utterly incomprehensible.

    There is nothing he can do.

    Today felt like championship under Stubbs. Soft goals and a team that doesnít seem to believe in itself.

    Talent is there, just not performing which comes back to the head coach.

    He wonít last long - football is dreadful and pedestrian - hate punting managers but Iíd consider it now. Bottom 6 football easily.

    A draw at home to a team who have always gave us problems over the years and heís not coming back from this is madness.

    Some folk are going over the top with this result imo, and Iím sure it would be the same if we have had the start Aberdeen have had and Hearts and Killi and St J all traditionally been the better teams last couple of years. It happens, we need to improve I know that as much as the rest of fans but calling for his head after 3 league games is wrong again imo. Some folk have never taken to him and I fear never will and canít wait to put the boot in and try get him out.

    The players turned it around themselves after they were released from Lennon's oppressive management "style".

    Heckingbottom more or less admitted that when he told us that he just played who was available. Hanlon and McGregor weren't even training.

    If he did some cartwheels up the touch line and told a couple of jokes in his interviews would it be more acceptable to you

    So is that a bigger indictment of the players than anyone else, or Lennon or both by that logic?

    Yep talks a great game but it's obvious he's seriously underestimated the game up here.

    You could drive a bus through our midfield now and that was the area that we needed to strengthen.

    Resign. Sad to say but he just doesnít seem like he has it. Seems a nice guy but he keeps asking ďdo you know what I meanĒ in interviews and I honestly get the impression he talks a good game but is incapable of doing it. Also get the feeling he is more like a coach and a friend of the players. He doesnít inspire the fans and, going by these performances, I donít think he inspires the players.

    I don't think you watched us in the Championship under Stubbs, in that case...

    We believed in ourselves, but we did ship a lot of soft goals under Stubbsy.

    Decent football and decent results.

    Unfortunately, I don't think our manager has the desire to play decent football and we don't have the personnel to play his long ball/sitting back game, so he's stuffed.
