Bit of a harsh assessment. You don't have a decent career in football like he did, by being a wimp. 
 

The reality is Dave Cormack offered his mate a job he wasn't qualified for, because he thought he saw something in him. Glass, like everyone else would, seen an incredible opportunity to start a potential career in management, and took it. As any sane person would do. 
 

Knowing his inexperience, Cormack should've insisted SG hire at least one experienced coach. Clearly he didn't, as we have a coaching staff of rank amateurs. 
 

 

 

 

Consi, lad I agree with you but Dave Cormack is not a 'football man'. He would not have the actual knowledge nor experience to know that this was a necessary requirement. I wrote about this when Glass' name was first mentioned for the job. HIs only credentials seemed to be that he was a pal of Dave and played for Aberdeen. That's it.

He played more games combined for Hibs and 'Crombie Sports! 🤣 (who?  yeah I know) than he did for AFC.

He's the worst managerial appointment in the club's history.

Despite the exciting start, it's getting hard to argue otherwise. 

He can't see what's wrong and even if he could, I'd doubt he can't fix it.

You do know that Davie Robertson played for the Dons before Rangers? I’m beginning to wonder.

Do I actually need to explain myself? Surely not

Hayes, McGinn and Ojo are officially done with Aberdeen imo. Unbelievably poor. I can't believe we paid fee for Ojo.

On another note, most likely mentioned elsewhere but teams just seem to score with virtual every shot on target against us.

Our defence is utterly appalling. Individual calamities everywhere. 

The last time I felt this disappointed with Aberdeen was under McGhee. A lot similarities currently with that time period.

Irrespective of what your thoughts are on McInnes, I don't think it's any coincidence that since the moment Cormack arrived at the club our league position has dropped lower and lower.

We were a much more attractive proposition when McInnes initially departed and now I imagine potential candidates will think twice about joining us.

a new manager in after the inevitable sevco humping would be the way to go .
as for a hun type manager, am ok with one with a massive chip on his shoulder about the new club.
in other words an other angry sir alex type will do fine.
 

ah what am i sayin, ,just join the highland league

Okay, in your world. Let's pretend Aberdeen are sitting 4th bottom having lost 17 games out of a total of 9 played. Except we are awarded 51.5 points per for a win while everyone else gets just 3. We would currently be sitting on 105 points, that would be a record points haul despite having 27 games left to play. 

Sounds like a lot of pish? Yeah but you started it. 

Fit?

😆

What an awful evening. We looked utterly hopeless. Glass needs relieved now the experiment has been a complete disaster.

It all reminds me of when we had Paul Hartley dragging us through games to scrappy wins.

Unfortunately, we don't have Hartley picking up goals for us and we have Brown trying to manage a shambolic defense while trying to direct play forward - mainly failing as we struggle to even have shots at goal.

There's an 11 in that squad somewhere.  Other than Ramsay having a go, they all look shot confidence wise.

Would like change to happen early doors next week but won't be surprised if there is nothing coming from Cormack any time soon.

Fun fact; 

He was a teammate of my old mans at Crombie sports. That's where he met my mother, as my Grandfather was a club volunteer, and he brought my Mum to a raffle night, and the rest, as they say, is history. 
 

Even then my old man thinks he should get punted. I think he might well be the worst appointment we've ever made, on paper as well. Having said that, I don't hate him like I hated McGhee. I just feel sorry for him. Truly. We'd all have said yes in his position, the blame doesn't lie at his feet. 
 

We all knew the credentials were patchy and it was as clearly nepotistic appointment, I think we were all so relieved for change though that we were willing to look it over and give him a chance. 
 

DC needs to do the difficult thing now though and cut the cord. Our next 6 fixtures really could leave us in the mire.

Why on earth does he keep persisting with Hayes and Ojo in attacking roles?

It became obvious after The Raith debacle he was out of his depth, no authority over the players or his amateur touch line staff.

Surely his “CV” made it obvious? 
Most of us saw this coming before it even started.

There did seem to be a flicker of hope in the early games this season but your right as soon as things went tits up we got what most deep down expected

I think there was a surprise factor in the early games as we were a bit of an unknown quantity. 

We've been well and truly worked out by everyone now though.

Nothing positive to say about that game tonight.

I just knew when a large amount of the away end were singing about Griffiths being a sex offender he would get the last laugh.

We are very much in a relegation battle and things would be much worse if we hadn't had a couple of wins to start the season.

Glass has to go, wtf was with having Watkins on the touchline for over 5 minutes before bringing him on (during this time Dundee scored their 2nd) and what was the point of bringing JET on 6 minutes into stoppage time?

 

Griffiths was always going to score. Free money

Watkins needs to play from now on. Looked superb when he came on.

Agree with some of what you say but not it all. I’m being brutally honest not harsh. I can’t prove it but I told everyone at start of Glass’s appointment he would fail immediately and I have been proved right. He was brought in as Cormack’s poodle to do exactly as he was told. If I heard the story once from Glass’s lips that he managed a £20 million player in Atlanta, I must have heard it a hundred times. This is what Cormack really wants. MONEY. He wants Glass to take local loons that cost nothing and sell them on for millions. Look at the stadium plans. Wants the Council tax payer to pay for a new stadium so he doesn’t have to. And what about shifting the game KO today to 6pm? All to make money from Americans. Doesn’t give a shit for the Aberdonians. I was going to go to that game today until Cormack changed the KO time. Cormack and Glass are American interlopers. They should go back to the US. Bring in Davie Robertson, there’s a true Aberdonian that would kick some ass.

Fuck off
