This is becoming some sort of obsessive mantra for the Stubbs detractors now. Never mind how utterly devoid of context it is, they'll keep repeating it. Pathetic behaviour.
No, it's just a hard fact. He failed to get us promoted out of the Championship twice - regardless of who else was in it and what condition they and we were in. In fact I think those who refuse to recognise this cheapen his wider achievements rather than give them their due place. He also won us the cup, magnificently and legendarily, regardless of the opposition we faced and their and our relative strengths and weaknesses.
No manager is perfect which is why those who love Stubbs and hate Lennon beyond all reason and those who love Lennon and denigrate Stubbs beyond all reason seem incapable of acknowledging their respective weaknesses.
I'd have him back in a heartbeat because while he was clearly incapable of putting together a team and style of football suitable to getting promoted out of that league, he did actually put together a team and style of football which would have been well suited to the Premiership. In fact I think the cup run and win - in particular the teams we beat along the way - demonstrated that.
Who's missing from our list of recent managers to have a pop at from the front page of threads still? We've got our Scottish Cup winning legend and new manager well-covered now.
Probably time we brought Big Eck back-up for a kick in the baws?
Yes is last year in terms of wins was shocking. Obviously had the Rangers job lined up and did not care a **** about us. Always thought the Latapy incident was manufactured because we could not meet his wage demands. Remember the Tank!
