I don't think many people on the forum would disagree with you barry, and certainly not with that statement. I wouldn't say he is deliberately letting in goals, but I don't think he has this "pride" in getting a clean sheet that some keepers do- like when you see a team coasting 5-0 and they let in a late goal and the keeper is raging because he's lost the clean sheet. Not that we're away to start battering teams 5-0, but I don't think Bain would be bothered if we lost a clean sheet. He's just dreaming of a summer move to Plymouth or some shit

Arvid Shenk is German for Neil McCann.  Run it through Google translate if you don't believe me.

Also Granny Danger is German for senile old c**t.

Languages are fun.

Bain looks like he's just going through the motions for me. Not deliberately making an arse of things, but not particularly trying his hardest either. 

In his first season especially he looked happy to throw his body around, going for crosses, really straining to make the difficult saves etc, now he looks like he's in full self-preservation mode and doesn't really give a shit about keeping the ball out of his net. It's a shame for a player to waste the talent that is clearly in there, but you have to ask what's made him like that. Is he just genuinely a selfish headcase, or was it the working environment. Be interesting to see if he suddenly reverts to 2014-2015 form over the run in.

Bain is a w**k. He, more than many, have let Hartley down big time this season. He played a major part in costing the guy that salvaged his career his job and he doesn't care, in fact, he's glad of it by the sounds of things.

Bain has been a poison to our club this season and it's no surprise the fans turned on him when it became abundantly clear he doesn't care if the ball hits the back of his net or not.

Kindly show some respect to our new manager after all he is an inductee to the dundee hall of fame and a dee-fiant hero.

Hilarious reading. The main factor in Hartley's failing, the only factor in fact, is Hartley.

Poor signings.

Poor tactics.

Poor man management.

Poor Paul. :(

Sounds like a title for a sitcom. Hartley moping about being shite at stuff, everything going wrong. Burning the toast, stubbing his toe, slipping on a banana skin. He doesn't talk, he just becomes increasingly miserable until it finishes with a close-up of his pus for one final weary sigh and slump of the shoulders. A jingly theme tune comes on as the end credits roll.

Poor Paul.

Another thing about Hartley's departing statement is the fact that he said he has left us in a far stronger position than when he joined us. What he neglected to say was that under his guidance we were/are headed straight back to where we were when he started.

Aye he looks like he's wanted away all season. 

 

There's been a few goal's this season where I got the feeling he'd have thrown his "tat sleeves" on it last season. 2nd against Hamilton and the 2nd against St Johnstone recently. 

I would find it hard to believe that you can actually half heartedly attempt to save a ball.

It makes no sense to anyone, 

Let's face it he's had one great season , one half decent and one bang average.

What does that make him ?.

A one season wonder?

I'd watch that. Thank you.

I think you would understand a bit more if you saw him regularly.

His first year wasn't just good in the way that you get some overrated mediocre type bottom team 'keeper who gets some plaudits from uninformed journalists for a couple of camera saves (i.e. Ali Al Habsi), it's been a massive change to his whole game. I've never seen a 'keeper going from looking so outrageously confident (pretty much coming for absolutely everything) to what he looks like now. If you compare his Aberdeen games in the first year to the one the other week, it's a totally different guy. The gulf in quality wasn't some sort of marginal fluke, he was miles ahead over a fair number of games for a while.

I don't give a shit if he argues with fans or whatever but the fact that he feels the need to suggests he's maybe not made of the right mental stuff to handle a club with this sort of pressure. The first time shit has hit the fan, he's went winging on social media and acts like a sensitive little bitch who is angry because their boyfriend has forgot to send a kiss in a message.

He's spent his senior career as the golden boy and now his career is at a crossroads.

I'm personally overjoyed to have a gentleman with style and a pride in his appearance back in the dugout.

Hartley looked like a burst couch chucked into a Mill o Mains communal drying area by the end there.

Be interesting to see what physical approach McCann takes, also. Will he be a dugout-leaner or a technical area patroller?He may even choose to run the show from the tv gantry, as that's where he's most used to watching the match from.

Well, it's not exactly unrealistic that if he'd lost the dressing room, the players decided not to put in the same effort.

Or have you completely missed what's been happening at Leicester?

Good article in the Scotsman about Hartley's signings. I wouldn't completely agree with all the ratings but it's not far away and clearly highlights what went wrong.

I think Craig Fowler has nailed it. Hard to disagree with any of it.
