You reek of someone who has been a total disappointment to their parents/partner and wants everyone else to fail.


Ha ha ha. Cool come back.

However I never want ANY of our players to fail. Even the ones that are poor to average at best & I said as much. Yet another repetitive happy clapper retort from you.

I on the other hand have indeed disappointed many folk but none that I care about.
You sound like someone that satisfies many. Catholic school boy aye?

The correct summary of May would be, He has been pretty chronic for a large part of his time here but the last few games he’s played pretty well.
End.


I still maintain the slight possibility that it was known May's recovery was an up to 2 year process. Preston weren't willing to wait and invest in his recovery, we got him cheap as a result and on reasonable wages since we were taking a chance on nursing him back. He's 100% within 2 years and we get 2 full years of circa 2015 Stevie May....hence the 4 year contract.

Almost makes sense (although there "May" be simpler expkanations).

Are we struggling for goals!? Seems we are doing alright in the scoring department. Not great but certainly not terrible.



We are absolutely struggling to score goals. If it wasn't for St Mirren and Hamilton games it would barely be a goal a game.
A few games lately we've hardly even had a shot on target.

Aye so take away some of our goals and we'd barely be on a goal a game? Good logic.

Sorry....The post evidently wansn't phrased in a manner accessible to the hard of thinking.

£400k is cheap for a striker.
Maybe it was known that he would take time to fully regain fitness.
Maybe he is still on that journey
Maybe he's about to come back to form.

....and before you say "that's not likely" correct, I even said that; but it is possible that maybe he was signed as a rebuild project and we wouldn't have gotten him otherwise.

It's equally unlikely that Preston would sell a fully fit, in form striker for less than half what they paid and that same striker would take a huge wage cut to come to us.

One might think that there was a conversation around how long it would take to get him back to full form and fitness and a decision made.

I don't think there's any chance that a club would buy a player, shelling out their highest transfer fee in quite some time, with the expressed intention of spending 2 years rehabilitating him, much of which involves playing them in the first team, in the hope that the end result 2 years later resembles Stevie May 2014. I mean, there's taking a risk and then there's this.

I agree.

However there is no doubt in my mind that the club knew at the time of signing May he was not the same player that left St Johnstone and would need some time to get back up to speed and (hopefully) back to his previous level.

It just hasn't worked so far. But he's been relatively effective in the last few games. But he really needs to start regularly scoring goals. At the end of the day that's why we bought him.

Is it?


As his main function yes. I don't doubt McInnes saw him as an upgrade on Rooney in that he thought he would score a similar amount of goals but also link the play better and be a more effective team player.

I'm pretty sure McInnes imagined he'd have scored far more than 5 goals 16 months into his Dons career.

Probably agree but at least my reasoning gives an outcome that doesn't have the club making an utter cunt of it.

I agree that in reality it is more likely that we made a cunt of it, but unlikely as it may be....I still hold onto the belief that my highly unlikely turn of events could be true.

It's a valid point.

So are you saying that there isn't an issue with us scoring goals?

How is it a valid point?  It's fairly obvious if you took goals off us it would reduce our goal a game ratio.

In general, we are struggling to score.
There have been 2 or 3 games where we have scored some goals.

The rest have been painful, negative, defending performances where we haven't looked like scoring.
That's how it's a valid point.
