Scott Wright looks a lot better in the little game time he's had. Much better in a central position.

Lol
You think we should have put Burnley out and that was a bad result?

Where did I say should? I said winnable, big difference. If Shinnie scored his chance or stevie may makes contact with the cross he gets then that tie was utterly winnable. That tie came down to small margins and the fact that we went into both games with a useless lump like Cosgrove up front set us at an immediate disadvantage. That came down to piss poor recruitment this summer and last.

I cannot believe Millertime is continuing to champion Calderwood.

I've said it before and no doubt will say it again. He needs to be banned from the football forums and only given access to the pub forum.

His knowledge of football is atrocious, whereas his knowledge of treatments for a burnt back is superb.

Stick to what you know mate.

P.s. looking forward to this year's Christmas album.

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.

Never argue with an I D I O T . They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Which players are not listening to McInnes and which ones has he lost in the dressing room?

It’s nothing like overpaid primadonas at Chelsea spitting the dummy. A shite analogy.

There must be some explanation for the all too familiar crap first half performances, especially in big games. DM must either not be preparing them properly (firing them up) or the players have heard it all before, know that it won't work, switch off and take the field lacking in confidence.

No

We went out of THAT the because our defence couldn't handle Sam Vokes or Chris wood

That could never be described as winnable tie

Our star player that we want at least £10million for was beaten quite easily for the equaliser at Pittodrie, people seem unable to grasp that despite being a shite English team Burnley are better than us by a distance.

The team as a whole never seems to impose itself. They concede ground, play too deep, punt the ball up the pitch rather than have the confidence to play it around. When is the last time they went out in a so called big match and took the game by the scruff of the neck from the start? There's a deep-seated problem at the club which the manager is either part of or cant fix. Either way its the beginning of the end for him.

Suspect it's familiarity to an extent. Can work against things
