The Famous Aberdeen - Season 2022/23

Sure I read the **** have a big name friendly before the restart, possibly a German team? Reminds me of couple of summers ago and they played games like that while the Dons faced Huntly or similar. Needless to say the **** were at a level in the first game and blew us away

Apparently we are looking to bring in Dacres-Cogley at right back. Negotiating with Micky Mellon to get him now, rather than just a pre-contract. Hopefully, we get him as we need a more experienced player there. No idea if he's any good though?

If league appearances on Wikipedia are to be believed then we aren't bringing Dacres-Cogley because of his vast experience in comparison to Richardson.

However, lets pray he's a better defender.

You know for sure we’ve no games lined up in the next 2 weeks?

No, but things have went very quiet with regards any announcement of any games and can't see the point of deliberately keeping stum about it.

However, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating when we come to play the gruesomes in the first two games back. 

We'll soon know how well they utilised this enforced break by using their performances as a measure.

Dacres-Cogley seems like an upgrade?

Perhaps a worry he seems to worse this season than last, but hes still ~average by your 5yr standards defensively with a great season in that regard for Crawley recently. While Richardson is/was always below the standards you should be hoping for defensively. Maybe a decision made his on the ball/attacking stuff would make up for it though?

Surprised Richardson's attacking stats are that good tbh. Defensively on a par with one of the training ground cones sounds about right. 

Still to be convinced that he has potential. Think he shows some on occasion. But he's not ready to be a first choice rb for a premier team and we need a starting rb urgently. Looks like the boy's an upgrade.

Ignoring his defensive liabilities, he's been unlucky.

He makes very good runs but the opposition are happy to leave the ball with Stewart. It's too awkward a ball for Stewart to play so he's found himself thirty yards out of position.

Early on, Scales was hitting this pass. Teams sussed Stewart's lack of ability on the ball out very quickly.

Saying that, when he does find the ball in space his crossing is poor.

Agree he runs into good spaces. looks bereft of confidence near or in the opposition box. He’s squandered a few decent chances by being too hesitant. 
Stewart is probably the next weakest link, for me.
He does have some really good games though.

Agree on Stewart.

"Defended well" is not enough if you are pushing for third in the league.
