Don't rate the guy and have felt he overstayed his welcome halfway through second season.

His tactics are a joke and he never holds his hands up and says "I got it wrong".

If he is still here next season mediocrity will remain.

Stats speak for themselves 3 seasons and his acomplishments are fewer the ebbes.

A much maligned manager who improved the club each season he was here, 2 cup finals and 2 european qualifications.

I think this is becoming VERY f*ckin boring topic.

Nice FIRST post regarding the issue though zzzzzzz

3rd in the league, chasing Europe, still not happy. Whilst we're there, lets sell Pittodrie and fold as a club. We're a club never good enough for the fans.No matter if JC won the treble, people would still have a go at him.

3rd in the league. Poor season? Yeah we should be top every year! Pffffft

I must admit that he's got the tactical know-how of some of the eejits I see "coaching" kids' teams, but he's steadied the place and there's no ready-made replacement waiting in the shadows, is there?

Hands off Martin Allan!

We're crying out for someone like Rico, Bisconti, or even Tosher to put a right f*cking coorse streak in the middle. We get bossed around too easily. We're f*cking pushovers.

C'mon, you serious?

For all his flaws - there are a few right enough - we've been progressing fairly consistently over the past few season!

The fact is - at the current level of investment the first team squad is receiving, we're clearly punching above our weight so JC has to receive credit for our position in the league. We're three of four half-decent players from really making third place our own yet the Board will not provide the finances for these players! If it's frustrating for us, how do you think JC & JN feel?

I like JC, but to be fair, our best performance this season was when Jimmy Nic was the man in the dugout against Killie.

Agree with Robo though, boring topic, we're covering old ground and it's just going to be the same group of us arguing back and forth. :rolleyes:

Attendance falling speaks for itself i think.

More worry that no younger players coming through again so if we dont get into europe we cant afford to buy our way through next season

Yep sack him!

3rd place in the league and chasing Uefa Cup is a dreadful thing to have to live with. I, for one, hate it.

Bring back the cup finals and qualifying for Europe by default not by right and also the relegation dog-fights. I love em!!!!!!!!

Progression and consistency is something that is not for Aberdeen Football Club.

The players that have made the biggest differance this season were there before calderwoods reign of boredome.

Anderson, Hart, mackie and tricky ricky.

Sad to say but saturday was a one of the few times i have come away from pittodrie satisfied i had seen an entertaining game

Pardon me for having ambition. Third, for the moment in what has been a strange league this season. MANY games won this season where we have been the poorer side. The cups, dinna get me started, his record in the cups is the worst of any AFC manager.

In spite of being third, crowds are pish, because JC fools very few of those who have stopped going.

Boring topic? Should be the only feckin' topic!!

As far as the crowds issue goes, we're missing maybe a thousand fans, that's not Calderwoods fault. Aberdeen just doesn't have a great support, and never really has.

To quote an oft used phrase on here "You can only piss with the cock you've got" and as far as money, and crowds go, that's what we're doing.

So
1. who's going to replace JC?
2. will they do any better with the current squad?
3. will they miraculously get £2.50 extra to spend?

JC is far from perfect. He gets things wrong. Shoot me if I ever make a mistake eh?
We are better, stronger, more resiliant (= we win lucky). One crappy performance and it's the old "Taxi for JC" routine.

What the f*ck will make you happy?

As much as i don't like Calderwood you can't argue with Results which being honest is what he is judged on. First season 4th - great season, second season 6th disappointing imho, now the 3rd season we are 3rd and we thought 4th was the best we can get. Lets be honest we are sh*te to watch but difficult to beat thats what Calderwood has made us.

One crappy performance - sorry to repeat myself but here's JC's thoughts on our last few games.

Dundee Utd scathing, worst performance of the season, calamitous defending
Kilmarnock didnít deserve a draw, we looked lethargic
Rangers didnít turn up, very poor defensively
Motherwell we carried our luck a bit, not playing at our best
Hearts pitch was not the best but we tried to pass the ball
Falkirk Disappointed, we were very poor

So you enjoy the days of relegation dog fights. Support St Mirren or Dunfermline then if you aren't satisfied with the Dons.

It has nothing to do with JC fooling people, its fans who support their club thru' the bad and currently THE GOOD!!! We're 3rd in the f*ckin league for f*ck sake. Get a grip you absolute f*ckin moron. If you're unhappy with the club being managed, then take a look at our last few managers and league positions. Bit of common sense you felopian tube!

It has become boring simply because there has been 913,574 threads about this.

I would love us to be back in the relegation dog-fight, never challenging for a European spot!!! Give me that over 3rd place any day.

Use the f*ckin heed you balloon!

A crappy result then. God you pessimistic buggers acan be so pedantic at times :rolleyes:


Ok you rather we play silky skilful football and get relegated?

In July would you have been happy with 3rd, 3 points ahead of Hearts and still a remote chance of 2nd?

Stats for you:

Season 99/00 Finished Bottom Points 33 Goal Difference -39 Goals For 44
Season 00/01 Finished 7th Points 45 Goal Difference -7 Goals For 45
Season 01/02 Finished 4th Points 55 Goal Difference +2 Goals For 51
Season 02/03 Finished 8th Points 49 Goal Difference -13 Goals For 41
Season 03/04 Finished 11th Points 34 Goal Difference -24 Goals For 39
Season 04/05 Finished 4th Points 61 Goal Difference +5 Goals For 44
Season 05/06 Finished 6th Points 54 Goal Difference +6 Goals For 46
Season 06/07 Currently 3rd Points 57 Goal Difference +13 Goals For 46

Consistency and stability was what was required after the shambles the club was in when Ebbe went on his merry way.
That's what we have got in the last three seasons.

Scottish Football will probably not (in our lifetime) have a league with Celtic and Rangers in it that any other can win.
So if you guys seriously think that chasing for third is not good enough you're talking utter pi$h.

The performance on Saturday reminded me of when Ebbe was in charge. Hopefully it is just a blip.
I get the feeling that some of the posters on here would rather AFC didn't qualify for Europe so they could come onto forums and bitch about it!

Himmin, who mentioned relegation dog fights?

As I said pardon me for showing ambition.

As for results, Queens Park, that was a beauty.

Bit harsh, but have to agree with the sentiments.
The old "Myth" that AFC have the most fickle support in the land is proving to be correct.

Performances aren't exactly beautiful, but the league standings suggest that they are at least effective.

For a change of direction here, for everyone that comes on with the 'JC's the problem' posts, what about they expand and give us their recommendation for an affordable and realistic replacement?
Who in their right mind would want to manage this club at this point in time?

Yeah it is a bit harsh, but it gets the point across. I'm fed up arguing the cause when we're in 3rd place, and still we have moaning bastards in our fans.

Look back at the years when we were struggling at the bottom of the table, now people moan because we're fighting for UEFA Cup. Je-sus. Does it not get a bit boring?

Conclusion - No matter what happens with Aberdeen........some of our fans will NEVER be happy.
