Wouldn’t surprise me. It’s been clear for a long time that may leaving was part of the plan for this transfer window. Said it on your thread, it’s just the best thing for all parties.

 

Just media saying it, no idea how much trust you put in them.

Our chairman has confirmed the deal initially broke down to his agent, who refused to file the paperwork at the last moment and tried to get more money out of both Saints and Aberdeen.

Don't know exact details but he's also apparently said we've paid half of the severance deal you had agreed with May, to get the deal done.

As much as it fustrates me to think that we've just replaced a hard working decently skilled May with Main (the less the said about his skills etc.), I feel like both will score similar amounts of goals at Aberdeen, but crucially Main will be paid considerably less for it.
Weird to think that May was probably the most exciting and most hyped up signing the clubs had for a while yet all he'll be remembered for was his effort...
Sadly he's the definition of a flop and whats worse is I think he'll score goals at St. Johnstone and make us feel terrible about the whole thing.

What this says to me is that Derek, for all his blustering about players having the mindset to win every game doesn’t
1. Actually have that mindset
2. Given attacking players to do so can’t actually play them as attacking players.

Mirror, mirror del......

Surprised how quiet it’s been. Didn’t necessarily expect anyone coming in but was sure some people would have been loaned out or Gleason finally getting punted.

Can punt Gleeson anytime, doesn't need to be in the window. I'd expect we're doing the "decent" thing and letting him recover frrom injury before binning him. Makes no odds to us, we'll have to pay off him anyway.

If Gleeson is released now he cannot sign for anyone else until January so would expect him to be at club until at least then.

He's a great example of how players aren't simply good or bad.  They react differently to managers, team mates, systems, home life.  I was delighted when St Johnstone appeared to have found a young player with real talent and hoped he'd re-discover it at Aberdeen.   I now hope he can give Saints fans something to smile about.

Well no, some players are simply bad. Jerel Ifil for example...

Nope, he's right. Certainly within Scotland anyway. If released outwith a window you can't sign for another club until the next window opens, hence the flurry of releases by clubs on deadline day.

He would have to be a free agent before the window closed to allow him to sign for another club before January.

Hi Dons fans. Have written a bit on McInnes and the Dons here in this piece, hopefully you don't all shoot me down, it's just my humble opinion from afar. Let me know what you think?

Agree with most of the sentiment on him. I am not anti him at all and too early to judge this team yet, I think we could be fine.

However, on your point about being top 6. If we miss out on Europe and do anything silly in the cups that unrest would get nasty quickly.

What you have written is rational, therefore has no place whatsoever on a football fans forum.

Fair enough piece to be honest.

The main issue for a lot of fans is Derek seems to be getting more cautious as the years go by. Killie weren't exactly in top form and we played out a terrible 0-0 draw. Derek then complained about some of the players in the press and said he felt too many of them were happy to accept a 0-0 draw. They didn't play any different to the previous three or four games. His tactics are often the issue but he fails to address it.

Managing professional footballers is a very difficult job (particularly when there is high fan expectation) but I think Derek McInnes has done really well at Aberdeen.

I think he has done a very good job. Fans are quick to complain Killie finished ahead of us alst season whilst also ignoring the fact we finished above the new Rangers twice after they were promoted. Their budget dwarfs ours.

He has done a very good job, I find some of the stuff said about him mental. Everything has a shelf life obviously but I don't think we're there yet at all.
