I think AFC would like to win things if possible, but only if it isn't too much bother and doesn't involve any actual work.
If not, they are quite happy doing just enough to keep the common fans off their back, enjoying their big days out, sipping champagne in the directors suite, and enjoying the status which comes with being big men at the club. That's why Milne loves McInnes so much, because his mediocrity allowed him to live a largely hassle-free existence for close to a decade.
Incidentally, I don't think that is the attitude of Cormack who seems to actually want to do things, but I think he's in the minority. I suspect that if anything, those who have become quite comfy at the club doing bugger all will likely be working against him to maintain the comfy life.
