According to UEFA, the org that would be the arbiter of whose football sucks the most, Scottish football is mediocre, and fully 9 places above Iceland in terms of not sucking. 

 

I don't watch any Icelandic football, but I suspect that's accurate.

Unfortunately for Arnason it was him that sucked.

What he's basically saying is that he's shite at dealing with high balls

 

Semi Final :

  1. Fails to deal with high ball for first goal which led to the handball and the goal
  2. Fails to deal with the high ball after the McKenna miskick
  3. Fails to deal the the high ball for the third goal

Seems to be a common theme.

What is it with players not being as good at a "favourite club" in their 2nd spell?

 

Jess, Arni, Mcginn...there's probably more Dons who weren't up to scratch upon their return.  Anderson's the exception perhaps.

 

I can think of other examples at other clubs: even Thierry Henry managed one goal in four appearances when he made a few cameos for Arsenal at the end of his career, Fowler, Joe Cole and, err, Maradona!

 

Sentiment outweighs practicality.

Including Jess is a major faux pas.

 

He was tremendous in his second spell.

Scored some stunning goals and basically carried the team.

Probably only due to his efforts we avoided relegation.

Remember getting horsed at Rugby Park with the Dons fans chanting ' we only have one player'. Sad times but what a fucking player.

 

Loved a performance against the Huns as well.

I know, I threw him in as a "controversy grenade", due to the mood I'm in. Probably too much coffee. With hindsight, the team he re-entered was not as good as the one he departed.

Back on topic:

 

 

The game here is mental, a lot of people on here have been complaining about our long ball tactics this last season, so yes, Arni ain't wrong.

What a fucking kick in the balls that day was. He played like a hero up until the madness as well (Cruyff turns on his own 18 yard line). A right stab in the belly.

Ach well.

The world outside Scotland makes me love the scottish game more and more. Good solid 10's of thousands transfer fees; no frills - good honest solid realism, with a squeeze of hate and a smidge of daring to dream.

 

The Dons are a joy to support.

think he was on the Bench for 5 games then was never seen again.

 

Got Closer to the team second time round than Neal Cooper did in his second spell at the club.

I can take those type of comments from a player coming to Scotland for the first time but if he didn't like it when he played in England or when he played with us previously then he can't go whining about it when he signs another contract up here and knows exactly what is coming.

Returning players aren't as good in general really because we usually lose them when their stock is at it's highest, or almost there.

They return more often than not (on the cheap) when they on the way down the hill.

It's pretty obvious why returning players aren't as good, especially in a club like our case because we are a club operating on the cheap & scraping about looking for players based on hope rather than ambition.

I was all for Arnason returning as a defender, based on his performances there with Iceland. He had a few great games for us & a few howlers but no real surprises other than why he was left on the bench so often when he was clearly a better option than AOC. Guess that was down to a combination of his attitude &/or fitness but not sad to see him go now.

McInnes better find a decent CH as cover/competition for Devlin just in case he's not fit or doesn't cut it.
Another season of Reynolds & AOC as options is frightening.

Bit harsh min. He was excellent that day along with David Winnie.

Just shows you how good a team we were back them when that cheating cunts had to rely on an own goal to beat us deep into extra time. Fuck rangers.
