I think people are getting worked up over nothing, the whole idea of the model is for it to be sustainable, obviously this season has been a disaster but there's a good chance we'll make decent money that will see a good amount reinvested back in to the side.

Yeah we just need to make sure he is held to account re the sustainability model

And despite this, we still spent over 400k on a player in January 

Yes and another reason there will be no transfer cash. It'll be out of contract players were talking to 100%

Would like to think the reason JG wanted the job was because he would be offered a decent transfer kitty 🤔

Agreed.

If not and JG / Aberdeen do not have a quality transfer window I shudder where we are headed.

If, and only if, our deterioration continues I for one would be expecting Cormack to go.

A very big season ahead for our team and him, no doubt about that.

Sorry disagree. 

Considine is not the answer, he's had his time, he's made good money out of Aberdeen and this is definitely the correct time to move him on. 

Every organisation has employees on higher wages than others, that shouldn't be a basis of wanting or getting more money, it has to be balanced out with what you bring to the table now, not what you were capable of a few years back. 

Agents leaking stories and contract details to try and shame or "blackmail" clubs into paying more needs to stop, maybe more clubs need to "make a stance"!I have no ill will to Andy Considine and wish him all the best but at the same time have every confidence he will not be missed. 

Love how Miller isn't happy with the club releasing details to the press but is happy for his opinion to be printed by the press and plastered on social media.

I think what the club offered Considine was spot on. Back up defender for a year and pathway into coaching. Clearly he’s very highly thought of  and could have been a very positive influence bringing through younger players. However, it was Andy’s choice not to accept that so we part ways. Bottom line. Absolutely no need for agents, the club  or Miller to discuss publicly.

I’m assuming those saying miller was not correct, believe DC & JG are doing a good job in their respective posts

I think it's more relevant to ask did Considine's agent do a good job when the details were leaked???

I dont think that is of any relevance! the piece was written around the very poor stewardship of AFC under Cormack, Glass and now Goodwin and its fair to say all three are horrific.

Of course it's relevant - the Considine situation arose from someone with a big mouth trying to "shame" AFC into paying more or offer more.

I have absolutely no issues with the club responding to that. 

The Cormack/Glass situation has and always will be a shocking part of our history and I still don't buy Dave subsequently saying Glass wasn't first choice.

I agree with the part about no need for agent to go the press, certainly no need for the club to put out a petty undignified response but re Miller, he’s not an employee and is well within his rights to speak publicly. 
 

it would be odd if his opinion was sought and he didn’t give it. 
 

I happen to agree with all his points. The Considine saga was handled very badly by the club and I think if Goodwin had his time over he would deal with it differently. Niavety on his part and I think in his rush to be seen as being strong and ruthless in getting the rid of the dead wood he has made a real error of judgement.

As a businessman Cormack knows his way around a balance sheet.

However as a football man he is never going to find the right balance.

Completely out of his depth and his egoistic,  I am always right approach is never going to work. 

Until he sells up we are going to remain in the doldrums he has significantly helped to create.

Aye. Gunn should be fired too.

He looks more like a tramp than a high ranking football director. 

Feck me what a laughing stock Cormack has managed to make us in double quick time.

He knows what he needs to do then... spend the money to get a winning team on the pitch and the fans will be a hell of a lot more positive.

2016/17 season, we didn't win any trophies but we were playing entertaining, attacking football. Scoring lots of goals. Reached both finals and could and maybe should have won the Scottish Cup (Kenny McLean argh). There was so much positivity around, people were enjoying going to games and being entertained.

Professional football is after all an entertainment sport, keep the fans happy and all that negativity will disappear.

Due to the clusterfuck of the past 2 seasons though and without the lure of European football, we're not the draw we used to be. The only way to entice good players to choose us over the likes of Hearts will be to offer them substantially more money. Get your hands deep in your pockets you shiny toothed gimp.

What does he expect though? 

He made big noises last summer about investment and strategy and we flopped miserably and finished in our lowest position for over a decade.  90% of last years signings are out the door already, many didn't even last the full season. 

Cormack for all his bluster has pretty thin skin.

Goes hand in hand with a massive ego, and the fact that in appointing Glass, he showed that he's a complete fantasist. 

A dangerous combination.

Aye sorry Dave it’s quite hard to be positive when we finished 10th with the 3rd biggest budget in the league. Get a decent team on the park and everyone’s mood changes.

easy fix.

Reduce the budget to match those at the bottom end of the table and we're punching around our own weight.

I don't know what the official wage budget is but there is a wide gap from what Cormack was selling and what he put out on the pitch. There is absolutely nothing stopping him from bringing in young talent to flip. There is no fifa fair play. Just pay your people and your taxes and you are good to go. He hasn't provided that seed money to close the gap. So he's either a liar or delusional. Coming from an American here. We must have taught him how to sell at a used car dealership.
