 There's no doubt May has not reached anything like top form whilst here, but there is a player there. 

 

Is there a player there? I've seen nothing to hint at this. He can't even control the ball.

No, just that in Taylor Reynolds at the back and Hayes Rooney McGinn up front you got the basic format that Derek builds his 4-5-1 around (with Hayes extra energy disguising Mcginns not giving a shittedness).

He is refusing to change his preferred style but has not / cannot recruit the required players to reimplement it.

May is a victim of that to an extent for sure. But then the relatively expensive post injury gamble that he was/is combined with the variety or non crowd pleasing traits (the gaming, the hair the whole grunge thing going on) doesn’t help either. Perfect storm for Stevie and I’d warm him against thinking Derek will eventually mould a team around him. Think Maclean was bought as a deep lying midfielder to ping long passes? Was he fuck.

Haven’t seen anything to suggest we will win this, or even score a goal. 0-0 bore draw.

Joking aside it really is worrying, I can’t remember an Aberdeen side as toothless in attack as we appear to be at the moment and it genuinely is difficult to see where the goals will come from. Probably have some of the worst attacking players in the league in cosgrove and May and Derek refuses to start Bruce. Hope I’m proved wrong but I’ve lost faith at the moment.

Who's going to do goals for us tomorrow?

Is McInnes going to do tactics or same old shit?

Wilson? Is he alive?

Wilson needs to produce in the 1st half or bruce needs to be in early. Before the 70th minute. May needs to make sure everyone is properly hydrated and has a fresh towel.

3 points is a must today.

Have to say that what with the fucking International break and the lack of creativity in the last third, apathy is already beginning to set in for me this season.

There's already a thought in my head as to whether or not I can be arsed going today to watch us keep it "tight" and hope to sneak a win on the counter attack.

Del has to let loose the hounds and attack these fuckers (especially at home) to win over those fans who are making rumbling noises otherwise the rumblings will get louder and louder.

One point is no fucking use today - that's what the bottom six do to try to preserve their status in the Premier League.

Fucking win today Derek

Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple - Bill Shankly.

Sticking to my "not bothering leaving the bar if May is starting" plan.

 

I encourage others for their own sanity to do the same.

 

C'mon McInnes you thran sleekit cunt.... do the right thing.
