Gunn is very lucky. He gave the majority of players new contracts. That is my understanding the prawcess.

Gunn is a textbook example of the Peter Principle.

How can you put someone on their last warning when the reason they screwed up is because they are in no way qualified? Hiding to nothing and bad management. They should hire a proper and respected DOF and Gunn can learn whilst doing his previous job.

Hopefully we replace him and get a proper DOF in who was actual experience in the role

Whilst not necessarily experienced in the role, perhaps his replacement is a regular poster on this very message board. 

Imagine going into contract negotiations with a potential new signing knowing the exact wage they were currently on and what wage they were looking for. Knowing what bonuses to offer. Not only this but knowing what wage his maw, his maws hairdresser and his maws hairdressers maw was on. What a position of strength that would be. 

Step forward ..

DM being replaced by a rookie should never have happened and i can only assume no one on the board had any say or the balls to say it was an absurd idea. 
 

As Kelt has said, DC now needs to leave the fitba decisions to folk that know about the game. He has set us back and probably ruined Glass’ career, in this country anyway. 
 

Experiment time is over for the moment Dave. Sort it fucking out

Harsh on Glass on here. On a human level it's a hard heart that couldn't feel sorry for the guy on Sunday. Always came across as a decent person. Who says his career is over? Armchair experts on social media? Give us a fucking break. I for one hope he comes storming back someplace else.

You mean in a low tier.  Learning the trade kind of a way to be ready in case a decent job come up?  And with potential shown in said decent job  - man management, ability with budgets, youth progression, god forbid actually winning something - then to be considered for what some might consider a big job?

Like that you mean?

I'm sure we all hope for great success in Glass' future. 

He just shouldn't be trying to learn how to Soccer Manager at Aberdeen at this point in his apprenticeship. 

 Hopefully he can get a gig at some USL outfit, where the pressure to know what you're doing is far less, learn the role, and then... as you say... come storming back.

The lad that was at Atlanta 2 with Glass then Collison has gone off to manage a usl outfit, can't remember his name off the top of my head. 

I think Glass might end up on Atlanta's books again, coaching youths or something like that. After that, who knows but I don't think he's a manager, might forge a coaching career like Cathro has done.

Whatever he does, good luck to him.

Never wanted him, but he seems like a decent bloke who was just in the wrong movie.

Experiment time is over for the moment Dave. Sort it fucking out

For the millionth time, how is putting an ex player in as manager an "experiment"?

It's not even an uncommon thing for Aberdeen, let alone other clubs in Europe, to stick an ex player in as manager! Willie Miller and Roy Aitken both come to mind within seconds, and neither had ANY management experience prior to coming in.

You've got Zidane at Real Madrid, Rooney at Derby, Inzaghi at Milan etc etc

It's not even like we took him straight from playing to manager like a lot of sides, he's got experience managing Atlanta A and B sides. 

An experiment would have been if we appointed a woman as manager, a completely unknown foreign manager nobodies ever heard of, or appointed that Octopus that predicted the football results at the world cup a while back.  It's definitely not an experiment to hire a guy who played for the club a while back that was working as a manager elsewhere.

That's a bit unfair. There was a lot of things wrong with Aberdeen during his spell, but he had us playing good football in spells and we dropped a LOT of points because of experienced, internationals making shocking mistakes that nobody can legislate against.  He did a few  things right at Aberdeen, but couldn't get the side to break down sides that sit deep. 

We outplayed Rangers and Celtic in numerous games and should have won a few of them had it not been for refereeing decisions going against us. Not saying he should still be manager at Aberdeen, but I think he's got potential to improve and become a competent manager elsewhere. Likely at a lower level than Aberdeen.

Clubs normally appoint recently retired club captain big character types don’t they?

Glass is one of the strangest appointments ever.

What level do think Aberdeen are at , if he had got Joe LEWIS  out the door we would have been at least 9 points better off

Of all the things being said about Glass on here over the last year you think suggesting he might not be cut out to be a manager is unfair?  You must have 90% of the forum on ignore.

Each to their own but I just dont see any leadership qualities there whatsoever. And he's 47 or something like that so if he's going to develop those skills he's got his work cut out

Willie Miller, Roy Aitken, Zidane, Rooney

Leaders and winners. Big characters. Instant respect. 

Stephen Glass, a leftfield experiment that was doomed to failure from the start. 

I get what youre saying about performances, they werent all bad. Most of them were bad enough tho. 

I dont blame Glass i blame DC for making a stupid appointment.

We've signed some defenders and a striker, lets wait until we sign some creative players before we start sucking the guys cock.
