It's been touched on a few times above. The squad isn't that bad but the manager doesn't have the nous to get the most out of them. Surely some of the players have now stopped listening.
It's all relative but look at the guy at Chelsea. Didn't change much personnel wise, but tweaked things a bit and they're up near the top of the league having completely turned around the way they play and their attitude.
It can be done but if it isn't, then next week and the rest of the season doesn't look too flash.
McInnes couldn't complain he hasn't been given a fair go.
This sums up some of the utter shite posted by people on here, somehow drawing some sort of parallel between us and Chelsea
Everyone went mental but calderwood was right, our supporters have unrealistic expectations. Posters complaining about us not making the group stages yet rangers did despite easier games and a bigger playing budget. This is somehow McInnes’s fault though.
The lack of ticket sales for the rangers semi is pathetic too, people not going because we might get beat. What a shit support.
You really didn't read what I said, did you? The first part in bold is related to the situation at Aberdeen and I felt Chelsea were were a good comparison to look at, and I did say it was all relative. My point was that Sarri has already turned around basically the same squad that Conte could get very little out of in his final year. Players stopped listening to him, his message was not getting through, he lost the dressing room, whatever. I draw this parallel with the situation at Aberdeen because it appears there is the core of a good squad there but McInnes has lost them and is not getting the most out of them. A new voice may turn things around.
To directly compare Chelsea to Aberdeen is of course, ridiculous (I didn't do that). As ridiculous as your interpretation of my OPINION.
