  1. 4, he was relegated the year we signed him. Must be some kind of record.
  2. Sharp for how good he is has had a huge struggle since day 1 with how rooted to his line he's been and his distribution, shot stopping has been brilliant but a lot of situations caused by him not having confidence to come for almost anything. He needs a lot more football. Dieng was very good for us and dominant in the air, he was far ahead from where we were at the time. He didn't really get the credit he was due because we were such a shitfest and the atmosphere was to scrutinise absolutely every detail as we were so desperate. Some of the critique he got was a bit silly and I'd feel quite comfortable rating him as one of the better 'keepers I've seen and comfortably levels better than someone like Parish who was well liked IMO.
  3. It also de-escalates the stake of the first vote so people swithering would be much more likely to go yes given there's pretty much nothing at stake at that point.
  4. Or go the other way and give them the freedom to be as vindictive as possible to 'up the ante' before the 'real' vote. Confirmatory referendums only really work if everyone acts in good faith.
  5. I think you'll be disappointed there. Some may be punted for a few months but the same characters usually emerge.
  6. Winning it gives him some perceived security of not having to fight one for a while and it being a bit messy bringing the vote back, I think that could work against him today and a bit of a 'f**k it, this is our chance' attitude comes into play. Tories are generally absolutely ruthless and love a leadership ballot. May only survived so long because it was a really bizarre situation where it was immensely difficult for any alternative candidate to emerge who could come up with something realistic to be passed that was near palatable to their base without ending their career. There's little Boris can offer them right now that they can't get out of a bit of horse-trading in the leadership ballot. They can probably use Party Gate to hide a fair no of other scandals attached to the cabinet.
  7. He was never officially announced by Dundee for what it's worth.
  8. Am I imagining things or did McKinnon not start talking about how great it was that Benedictus was a natural left footer when he signed? Seems a nice enough guy but if I understood that correctly and it wasn't just him misspeaking, that should really horrify a board.
  9. Sweeney is a good defender at this level despite the horrific goals against column. Could see someone coming in for him this summer.
  10. In all fairness, I think it's pretty harsh to take anything from when you get one of these good academy players as their first loan move. It's always a bit of a shock to the system for them and then usually the test is if they go out again how they cope. Can see it a bit with Daley-Campbell right now. He's very clearly talented beyond the squad but has also looked very raw and very late. He was dropped last week (played on Sat in midfield with our covid issues) and as good as he looks, I don't think there are many teams in the league where he'd turn up and get much of a look in right now.
  11. How many tickets can we each buy on general sale?
  12. Aberdeen are a very oddly run club right now, McInnes was holding things together and he's left a big void and they seem to have just replaced that with a few buzzwords and don't really know how to run things. Cormack seems a tad obsessed with making big statements and branding which is great but it's been to the detriment of the football side (e.g. appointing an unqualified manager who pledged โ€œfast, attacking footballโ€). It's like his decision making is to impress people and 'excite' rather than actually get the basics there. Personally think when boards start pledging on what style of play a manager is going to play etc, it wrecks everything. It's probably lucrative and too big an opportunity for someone like Goodwin to actually turn down but I genuinely think that the next manager could be a disaster appointment depending on how board have them operate.
  13. We've bought an old house up that needs a lot of work and have a very big DIY job on our hands. Right now, there's two fireplaces being knocked through, frames going up, rewiring, and a full redecoration (including kitchen worktops, doors and some rejigging). A lot of new stuff for us to take on (aside from electricals and skimming). In all of this madness and decisions to make, she's become absolutely obsessed with purchasing skirting boards and dedicated about 75% of her time stressing about this point and getting annoyed that I'm not giving it adequate attention. For what it's worth, they are mostly wood in pretty decent shape and would be madness to replace!
  14. It is a thing in leagues with squad registration rules. On a match day, you have to nominate the sub keeper on the bench.
