He does make the wrong decision an absolute mental number of times.

I think the big question is how does a promising player like him who was outstanding in a tough away game like midweek look so poor at home against the bottom club (albeit a cameo appearance). Has McInnes’ influence not had the desired effect on him unlike the U21 Scotland coach? Is he not as good as we were hoping? Or has he not got the right attitude and thinks he can saunter through the game?

I see O'connor the same way I see Wright. They are both talented young players full of potential but they are being let down by management. They both need plenty of game time regardless of form, 4  or 5 games in a row and where possible on from the start. Coming on 5 - 10 minutes here and there heaps pressure on a young loone to come on and change a game in our favour. Derek doesn't tend to change the team if we are winning so the young guys generally are coming on having to make an impact. We need to rest some of the so called experienced players like Logan and Ferguson for their own good and to let the young guys find some kind of form.

I hear what you're saying son, but Connor is a shit ton better that Wright.

One crap game (amongst a team filled with shit performers) does not an all of sudden useless cunt make.

He's a terrific special wee prick.

I think McLennan will prove to be a bit of an enigma. He'll do stuff that will have you on your feet either in joy or dispair. Yesterday was dispair after being on your feet in joy during his midweek cameo had any of us been there.
You can coach a player but a lot of the decision making is down to the individual. McInnes didn't make him make slack overhit passes or make him run down blind alleys and lose possession. McLennan himself has to learn as he's got bags of ability, but i don't really think he knows what to do with it. Not sure the management do either to be fair.
I don't think he's a winger, that's for sure.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

I disagree with your comment on the level of ability of the two players. There is a reason why McInness has been reluctant to put Wright out on loan and why teams like Ipswich have shown an interest in Wright. Its just that McInness is not playing these guys enough and the team don't play in a way that both of their attributes will shine through. What Connor has over Wright is his upper body strength and general physicality. Doesn't make Wright any less of a talent just needs to be played in a different way. Both talented and will contribute to the team if given backing by the manager and the support

Wright is too attacking a player for Mcinnes as is Mclennan, he wants them to be Like Gallagher and be good defensively. You don't play regular in a Mcinnes team if you cant put a shift in defensively. I think Wilson comes into this category also, thats why he will never put out an attacking team that takes risks offensively and that is why we desperately need a change
