Ange Postecoglou

“I can’t believe we may have found a manager more arrogant than Strachan,”  Maxie.

“Growth Mindset innit,’ ” Nick McDonald.

“Reading that gives me hope that he will do well for us if given the job. All year we are asking for unproven youth talents to get a shot in the first team so why all of a sudden do we not take a chance on a manager who is unknown,” Kierso.

“Because a youth player can be taken off if they are having a bad game or not as ready for the team as we hoped. If this is a mistake we are stuck with it,” Buggerlugs.

“But does he know Glasgow?” Martin McGuigan.

“This is nauseating. It’s a simple game, play the best players in the best position. Keep them fit and motivated and discipline them if they step out of line.”  Ach Well Foley.
