The Famous Aberdeen - Season 2020/21

Recommended Posts

As I have said for years - his name should be Scott Shite. 

Hope his relationship with the *** hordes is as positive as Ricky Foster's was.

For Aberdeen's needs at this moment, I'd rather have GMS than Scott Wright.

I've never been a fan of Wright in the slightest....rarely scores, very poor assist record, and perma-injured.....and now he's added complete dickness to the list, he's not really went up in my estimation. 

Surely you can see how effective hes been this year despite not racking up great numbers? Take our equalising penalty v Celtic as an example, without him bursting past three players and sliding it through to hedges, we dont get into that position. This wont show up on goal/assist stats but it was the most difficult component in the attack. he brings an x factor which is so hard to defend against and looks to be improving all the  time. 

having said all that, a move to the **** is stupid as hes not better than Kent/Arfield/Aribo/hagi/Roofe/Morelos and therefore gets nowhere near their team. It also means hes a ***, which renders him unable to have a peaceful drink in his home city, which is nice for him I suppose. 

he will be a massive miss for us, but if we can get some cash for him, we could maybe get Watkins back (if fit) or someone else who fits the mould of a technical attacker who can break down a banked defence.

I think you just have to accept that you got it badly wrong with Wright this season and move on.

I'm afraid that half a dozen decent performances in around 5 or 6 years doesn't make him an Aberdeen legend in my mind.

No-one called him a legend.

He's obviously a good player that we will struggle to replace this month, if we even get to.

Seems a tad bizarre to keep Woods on

It does. Maybe Cerny is not coming back.

Good for him if he's getting a move to finish his career as a first pick but if we are planning on carrying the three senior keepers for the second half of the season it is a very bizarre use of the budget.

I will believe the Mcinnes stuff when I see it. Has all the hallmarks of absolute drivel.

The only thing that has me thinking it could be true is we were told there'll be signings in January. Nobody mentioned folk leaving for others to come in like we usually would.

Otherwise inclined to agree.

Well, it could well be the case that there is tension between the manager and Dave C over this window. I'd be surprised if there wasn't.

Someone has then just taken that and run off with a wee fiction I suspect.

Can't say I agree with the clamour for McInnes to be sacked on social media at the moment.

I appreciate that fans are bored. He's been here for nearly 8 years and we've clearly plateaued, the football has been shite a lot of the time, Rangers are out of reach and worst of all, we can't even attend the games. I wouldn't even be completely against him leaving at the end of this season or next if he feels he's taken us as far as he can. However, given that no other non-OF manager has achieved the points totals that he has for even more than 1 season, I would be very surprised if we dramatically improved for a sustained period of time, at least domestically. It is worth noting that there have been more misses than hits in terms of managerial appointments amongst the biggest clubs in the SPFL in recent years as well as at our own club going further back and whilst Cormack has been very impressive in terms of improving things off the park, there's no guarantee that he or the rest of the board have what it takes to identify and recruit a successful football manager.

This isn't a "Remember McGhee" rant but it should not be forgotten that Derek has raised the bar at the club both on and off the park compared to the set up that he inherited and the vitriol he's receiving does not sit right with me. With McInnes we have a safe bet for 65-75 points, a couple of semi finals, maybe a shot at a final and through a couple of rounds in Europe if the draw is kind. If improving on that is the expectation for a new manager then I would expect that we'll be looking for new managers every 12-18 months going forward.

I'm not saying we shouldn't be more ambitious but I'd be wary of us finding ourselves playing in the Betfred Group Stages after hounding out a pretty successful manager because things were getting boring and we fancied a change.

Just shocked our Canadian friend hasn’t added to the speculation given his stellar predictions success rate recently.
