If he goes to Englandshire, he goes with my best wishes and a massive thank you for his service to our club.

 

If he goes to the Huns, he can get to fuck just like the other Rat who soiled himself by going to the dark side

it's encouraging that the west coast media absolutely despise Aberdeen again. It means we're doing something right.

 

it's just a shame that Shinnie and McKenna gave them something tangible to complain about.

the only way scottish players playing up here get the big money move is if they do it in an international.

 

well shinnie horsed that one.

 

plastic pitch or not, that was a complete shambles.

 

i do think it would be fairer that if you want to participate in uefa or fifa tournaments, then you have to have the ability to provide a grass surface to play on.

If he's going to the huns then aye I agree


If he's doing anything other than penning a new 3 year deal with the Dons then I don't give a fuck.

Is anyone genuinely that worried about losing Shinnie, or is it more to do with fear/lack of faith in McInnes's ability to find a replacement that can be as influential 'some' games?

In all seriousness when you average out Shinnies influence in the side it is pretty much that. Average.

Some bigger results this season have helped boost his appreciation for some but they are discounting some truly awful games as a result.

He goes he goes. He stays he stays.

Not worth our biggest ever wage that's for sure IMO

Probably a bit of both

Regardless of his limitations he's a positive influence on the team and works tirelessly for the cause. That level of energy and attitude isn't always easy to replace

I certainly agree with that side of things.

That said. Similar could have been said regarding Mackie lol

My point is. Yes losing him is an inconvenience/pain in the arse but far from end of world/cause for back to dreaded bottom six standards.

The main thing for me is that he is nowhere near justifiable of our highest ever wage. We could replace him easy enough for that kind of deal/wages (if we have faith in McInnes in doing so)

People generally get a bit concerned if the club's better players are leaving. That's pretty normal I'd say.

There's also the unknown factor about who will come in to replace the leaving players. People just worry that the team might be worse but these things can work either way

Integral part of our team.

Should be keep at all costs IMO. Build a team around a captain like him.

Well big Andy not exactly the heartbeat of our team but he's an important member of the squad. I think he gets overly criticised at times. He's not perfect and (like all players) he makes some mistakes. He rarely lets us down though.

He looks like Jorge salcado from narcos series 3. The head of security guy with the lovely wife.
That’s reason alone to keep him imo

Good management would be giving him a second chance, in midfield today at the expense of quasimodi mcginn who for some reason has escaped any flak

Correct.

I agree

 

A motivated Shinnie in midfield will run through walls to make up for his mistakes in the first game. Good management would be to let players make amends for their individual mistakes and not destroy their confidence given it was a poor team performance. I admit that Shinnie isn't the most technically talented midfielder in the squad but if you want to bring motivation and hard work to the midfield there is no one better in this current Scotland squad to lead by example in the middle of the park.

Cracking idea.

McGinn has been fucking awful in several games under McLeish, why should he be given so much slack and yet the media drongos are all out to slaughter Shinnie.

Having said that is San Marino the kind of game where you need a Shinnie type in midfield? Ideal for him would be when we play much stronger sides. Like Kazakhstan etc.

Good point. Kazakhstan type games is where we should go all defensive.

Try and hang on for a point.

Exactly.

We were naive going against such a top outfit without shoring up the midfield better, just played far too open.

Scotland boss Alex McLeish has told Graeme Shinnie to "stay mentally strong" following his Kazakhstan nightmare. Alex you are a fud. You could and should have played him in following game in midfield. Don't come out with platitudes in the press and drop the guy from the team.
