It looks like it's going stale for McInnes. It happens to most successful managers in Scotland and he's had a decent tenure. As much as Aberdeen have humped us in recent seasons, the only players that the opposition had to be genuinely fearful of were Jonny Hayes & Niall McGinn. Previously there were others, but they two have been constant (Hayes obviously left and came back) and now they're both past their peak. They've a donkey of a striker that has the occasional purple patch and some of their other mainstay quality players are also aging in Shay Logan & Andrew Considine,
The attempts to freshen up the squad haven't usually worked either and the likes of Hernandez, Ojo & Main haven't delivered near enough.
The squad needs an overhaul built around the likes of Lewis Ferguson.
They'll still be fine for another season or so, but McInnes arguably hasn't really solved issues that have plagued Aberdeen for a few year now.
