It shouldn't matter if it's his natural position or not, he should have the intelligence to realise he needs to not dive in as much and give referees the easy option to book him.


His role this season is different to last season, with Jack gone. It's one of the reasons his card count is raised ridiculously high. We have much less of the ball which leaves him chasing it all over the park.

Shinnie's getting booked more because Ryan Jack isn't in the team.

Try not to be a fucking simpleton. It's hard, I know but make an effort. I thought it was fairly clear but I will try a little harder for the simpletons.

Shinnie is getting booked more because he is chasing the ball all over the park. Why is he doing this? The simpletons cry....well because we are not as good at keeping possession of the ball as last season. Why might that be? The simpleton ponders....well maybe we lost the midfield player who's job it was to retain possession. Ah....could be....

A quick glance of our possession stats over the past two seasons shows very little difference in our average keeping of the ball. Last season is obviously going to be higher given we were playing very well, but not so much higher as to explain Shinnie being carded every other game. Try again fucknut.

Not sure at what point the 3 game ban will kick in? But he can't be far off it.


he needs four bookings for his next ban - hopefully he can reign it in for a couple of games and hell be fine

And to add...

The cards aren't as a result of chasing anything. They are due to his constant careless fouling

He could take up the "extra workload" if there was any without fouling so fucking much and he wouldn't get the cards.

It's false logic to link jack leaving to shinnie's yellow cards - just a string of assumptions

According to the red final, 11 of his 16 bookings has been for his first foul, which if true is a pretty alarming stat and shows an obvious bias against him.

I thought his yellow on Saturday was soft and possibly his first tackle too.

The Pittodrie pitch is playing its part.
Much more difficult to recycle and retain possession on that surface.
Our groundsman needs to be replaced.

For me it's a major flaw in Shinnie's game.
He must have the sense that he's now a target for refs, but he seems to lack the discipline to control his game better and reduce the amount of cards he gets.
As you say, it's crazy for someone so vital to the team.


He just doesnt have the footballing brain to play midfield.

He got carded at Celtic for snapping Hayes (fair enough) all he had to do was not jump in. Hold him up and wait for cover.

I dont know why he does it.

Brown or that other dirty bastard McHugh (Motherwell) never seem to get penalised that early tbf.
