I don’t think he will be off just yet. Cormack will give him until the summer. If we don’t get Europe then he will be away. 
we are five behind hubs with a game in hand. 
don’t get me wrong. I want him gone as soon as possible but I just don’t see it happening

There is no joy in it. It's a necessary outcome. The guy has built up the club, and is being pushed out before he dismantles his own work entirely. It is what it is. 

He's flinging shit at the wall, and has been for a while, and its nae stickin'.

 

Hopefully he still has a decent career, it just won't be at Aberdeen, unfortunately.

The situation we find our club in has fuck all to do with Bobby Sands😉.

I reckon we will part ways in the Summer.

We will limp our way to the end of the season and hopefully Derek will walk.

A doubt we have the players fit enough to challenge third now especially against a good hubs side😂😂😂😂

that game in hand is Celtic away=nil poi

Never been one for Bobby Sands patter. A noble man who died for a noble cause.

 

The song is a good wind up though, I suppose.

As long as the new manager is already lined up & gets good opportunity to see what is required for next season (which is a fk load) then it doesn’t really matter if McInnes goes now or at end of season. Just as long as the plan is to get rid.

very little will change with that side he has assembled with him or anyone else in charge for rest of season.

Third is gone, fourth will be a struggle but achievable so just plan for next season

Kick him upstairs NOW, and let his contract wind down.  

We have ex-players on staff with experience at the highest level who can take over till Summer, but this needs to have been the last game McInnes is in charge of at Aberdeen.

With so many players likely to be leaving, how can they wait until the end of the season. Looks like another Eddie Turnbull style clear out is on the cards.

You're an idiot. 
 

No point in rewriting history, he's been a very good AFC manager. The last 2/3 years have been brutal in terms of football, and in terms of the fans being hopeful for silverware or Europe. 
 

I want him to do well. I really do. No personal grudge against the guy, he's just clearly too stubborn, or incapable of changing things to make us better. 
 

I despise the shite he speaks at times, I despise his idea of how football should be played, but I think he's a decent enough guy, simply earning way too much for the job he's doing. 
 

I dunno, when I heard his interview before the game today, he sounded desperate, not a trait I'd normally associate with him. I genuinely feel sorry for him, but in some ways, he only has himself to blame. 
 

The end of an era for sure, and I hope our next move is ambitious and we don't revert to type. Keep clear of the Scottish old boys, and I think fans would be interested. 

Spot on.

I now think his time is rightfully up, but it’s not how I’d want it to end for him.  He’s been good for the club (we can’t dispute the improvements to the club), and I don’t doubt the love he feels for AFC (I think he is genuine when he says that).  But he is clearly bereft of ideas.

I'll always be grateful for what he gave us in those first 4 years, but continual and accelerated decline since has been difficult to watch.

I also think we should part company in the summer but there is too much stuff going down this weekend for him to survive beyond Monday.

He won’t walk. And he probably has enough credit in the bank externally to get a semi decent gig elsewhere,

But, he’s DONE here.

Agree entirely. Actually feel a bit gutted about it ending this way but the time has come

Red TV with virtually no post match analyses... just said, that's it from us, and pulled down the shutters.

I hope to god we get someone in with a set of fucking nuts, because McInnes' 'safeball' against the 'big' teams has basically numbed me to the inevitable cowardice he displays. 

I want to cheer us on as we have a go... it's hard to cheer on a team that has basically curled up into a ball until the battering stops. 

 

Derek McInnes is a narcissistic charlatan.

His first few seasons he had all or majority of Huns/Hibs/Hearts/Utd in the Championship.

We have a massive wage budget. Rising year on year. At £9m pa currently I believe. By far the 3rd highest in the league.

Last 2 seasons we’ve been papped to 3rd by Killie and Motherwell. Embarrassing.

He’s overseen a holiday camp/ boys club atmosphere. That’s why the players have been on side so long.
 

AFC is easy street. Big wages and a jolly. Banter at training with very little actual quality coaching. How poor are we at corners and crossing? Horrific, seldom beat the first man.

How poor do we start matches? Zero tempo, sluggish, losing out to second balls.
 

No style of play. Pass it sideways between the back, then 5 yard pass into midfield and then back to the defender. Repeat process then lump forward.

Cormack Park has compounded easy street for the players. Now even more of a holiday camp. No coincidence our form has been shocking since CP opened.

A quality coach/manager would use those facilities to hammer home professionalism and properly coach and improve players.

We will see exactly the cretin McInnes is once he’s finally gone. Mark my words.

Third place is definitely gone now as we have to go to Parkhead twice later this month and even against the current Celtic side that's two surefire defeats. Hibs will be well clear of us after those two defeats. No goals in 4 games is embarrassing on top of the 4-1 humping at Ross County. 

I think even McInnes must realise his time is up here 8 years is a long time. Too long. We are clearly going backwards and I'm pretty sure Cormack doesn't hold him in anything like the same high esteem that Milne did.

McInnes did a good job and deserves respect for restoring a bit of pride. He hit a glass ceiling within his own mentality and his time is up. Cormack needs to put the issue to bed and allow McInnes to leave with what he’s due.

Some of the vitriol is unkind.

Winning games by luck and 0-0 draws, beaten by teams like Livingston, Ross county,  freezing when playing the old firm, tactics inept, signings diabolical. Never admits he’s at fault.  Biggest patter merchant when interviewed.    Get him out now Cormack whatever it takes.

Yup. He deserves to go with dignity. Some folk going way over the score with vitriol.

Would seem logical. Only thing I would add is we will most certainly be aiming to cut costs going into next season. Cannot imagine that new manager is going to excite the fans.

Don't get me wrong reckon Derek's time is almost up but have a strong suspicion that we are going to be underwhelmed when a successor is announced 😲

I think Cormack Park has shown him up really. He moaned about it for Years and told us it would be a game changer, but in reality we have actually got far worse since it opened our play has been terrible and the injuries have went through the roof

Yes, he was good for the club, but in the last 3 years he seems to have lost any edge he had to begin with. Ought to have won more during his time here.
