Out of interest who was the last Aberdeen player to do well for the national team?

This is what always gets me when the manager is targeted.  Granted, McLeish seems to be quite happy to settle for a 3-0 defeat in a must-win game, which is poor enough, but 11 players on a football pitch being this bad can't entirely be blamed on the manager.  There isn't one of them on that pitch that deserves to escape criticism.  

Exactly, they only have a couple of days with the players and ultimately these guys should know how to do the basics correctly, unless they're completely thick of course which is entirely possible.

Imagine being McTominay and going back to Man United getting slagged rotten because your national team got pumped by Kazakhstan. 

Then they find out you can't actually get a start against Kazakhstan.

Fun facts: Kazakhstan's record wins in the UEFA confederation are 3-0 and 4-0 respectively, both at home to that other bunch of abject permadiddies Andorra. 

There's still time for a new one to be set.

This is painful, they aren't even hanging on - an absolute embarrassment. Davie Provan explaining that 'this was always going to be difficult' probably the lowest point of the past 80 minutes. 


To be fair with this threadbare squad packed full of mediocrity why on earth should we expect to turn up and win this match?

Maybe if he'd done that in the first half...

Think we have learnt that English premier league players are much better than Scottish premiership, guys we used to have like Hutton, MacArthur, Morrison (Whittaker in his Norwich days). People saying guys like Jason Kerr etc are morons. People over the years who have said that we should be playing guys in the middle of the Scottish Premiership are just so far off the mark.

I kind of agree but in my opinion the level of call offs would never have happened under Strachan. Tactics seem wrong half of the time . Seems not to be a great team spirit also which also lies at the managers door also.

But your correct players have to take responsibility to.

To think Gordon Strachan was hounded out

Let's not start that nonsense. Just because McLeish is a disaster doesn't mean Strachan was the answer.

This 2nd half has been an absolute stroll for them and McLeish has done absolutely nothing to impact the game with his subs.

Death, taxes, and folk on P&B trying to pin a dire Scotland performance on Scott McKenna. 

When it should be Graeme Shinnie.

Nae luck Dons.

Oh, don't get me wrong, McLeish is far from blameless.  In fact, he probably deserves the majority, but it's like a 51/49 with the players rather than the usual "get the manager to f**k" and then being surprised when the same shitebags are shitebags under a new manager.

Cannae wait for the inevitable narrative if we don't turn this around.  Can probably write yourself a bingo card now.

"They're ranked x places below Scotland"
"Embarassment"
"Lowly Kazakhstan"
"x of their players are going back to their jobs as butchers/bakers/fluffers in the morning"

When really, it's just going to be another example of why we've got this superiority complex against nations like this.  They are not the diddies they used to be.  Technically, they're clearly at least as good as us, and probably better.  If they're diddies, so are we.

This just isn't accurate at all. tim.png.4ea88a84a76e7b4e0436e366ac9fbaf4.png 

Kazakhstan's record has been awful, because they're not a good side. There's no superiority complex about it. A third seed side should not be losing 3-0 away at the fifth seed side. It's a simple as that. You can dress it up as a superiority complex if you want, but it's pish.

They are the diddies they used to be and they will not take any points from Russia or Belgium, you can take that to the bank.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm really looking forward to the immediate turnaround in our fortunes that'll come as soon as we sack the manager....
