Glass ain’t in charge of the recruitment, no matter what he says. He’s a “head coach” on a 12 month rolling deal.

Gunn as DOF should be the guy getting the grief. He’ll be doing the negotiations, so if we have failed to get any deals over the line that’s on him.

Cormack has a lot to answer for as well. He’s got no clue about the footballing side of running the club.

Gunn needs to be replaced. It’s a key role and it needs an experienced person in it

Manager is an even more ‘key role’ that needs an experienced person in it. 
That is the first priority that needs changed. Simple as that

Especially after saying he wouldn’t 🤣

 

There’s a shit ton of sympathy being shared for him tonight. Excusing him & blaming all but him. 
 

Amazing how soft in the head/heart our modern day support is. Fkn millennials 🤣 

Its unbelievable. The new DC and Glass era seems to have developed a hardcore of fans who just trot out excuse after excuse after excuse on their behalf.

Cormack, Gunn and Glass are all out of their depth here. Only debate is which one is worst?

Cormack 100% to blame here. 

Other guys have been over promoted and are guilty of being a wee bit too smug for their own good since they've achieved fuck all yet but Cormack is on the hook for it all. 

It's his philosophy, his leadership structure, his appointments.

Cormack and Glass would be in significantly better positions if Cormack had got a real DoF in instead of Gunn. Someone who knows what they’re supposed to do as DoF should’ve been the minimum requirement for the job

Ok I don’t dislike him as a person.

I dislike him as a manager & he should be 4,000 miles away from Aberdeen, co-incidentally the distance from Atlanta to Aberdeen.

Cormack can poke his prawcess up his hole & take his puppet show with him.

This poor window is just the final straw for the shitshow they’re running.

He's not the manager, he's the Head Coach.

He's also not involved in the transfer negotiation prawcess. That's done by Gunn and others on the board. Glass just says I'd like him, him and him. Up to the board to get that over the line. For which they have failed. 

The only thing Glass deserves flak for is not getting a team capable of consistently winning on the pitch.

Do you all not for one minute think Glass would like a better quality of player to choose from?

For me, he's been let down as much as the fans have been.

The buck stops with Cormack & Gunn.

For youth to flourish they need to be playing alongside quality and experience. Given the money available I’d have expected at least one more signing and someone with that quality and experience needed. What we don’t know is why targets are saying no (given there are so many variables).  Concerning. 
 

Here’s hoping big changes come in the Summer. 

Aye in the boardroom and dugout

Cormack’s dream of 15k ST’s rapidly disappearing. Only winning the Scottish Cup will prevent lesser sales than recent years. So get the fuckin thing won.

It’s great to see that Gunn is finally getting pinpointed for his part in this structured shitshow. His appointment was up there with Glass’ in terms of it’s idiocy and ineptitude

Why did they down tools before 11pm?

Still an hour to go.  Deals have been done at the last minute plenty times before.

I'm not that disappointed by the window tbh.

We offloaded Hernandez, Gurr, Samuels, Longstaff and McGinn.

We've signed A 20 year old Dutch lad and an American youngster with supposedly a great deal of potential + we've added Adam Montgomery on loan until the end of the season.

I'd rather we signed no one than sign players for the sake of it. The summer is when we should see the club makes serious changes to the squad. This was the first look at what the recruitment team is striving for.

 

We lost Hedges as well, but you are right the folk that left contributed, apart from Hedges, are no loss whatsoever. Our squad is still too imbalanced for my ( and probably everyone else's) liking, as having one fit forward that can score is a bit of a nightmare waiting to happen. We also have little to change things when we invariably go 1 down and  need to break down 11 behind the ball

Be lucky if its 5,000. Many only renewed because of the pandemic and felt they had to support the club.

I doubt many will make the same mistake this summer

Remember the q and a he and Glass did late summer? 

Trotting out the 'do the supporters not realise that we can see where the squad needs to be improved as well?' line.

Agree. Cormack is ultimately to blame as his appointments are dreadful. Gunn appointment is probably even worse than Glass.

I hadn’t put decent money in for a few years, wanted McHun out. Backed em heavily in summer (in comparison to the last 5 year) but won’t be making that mistake again. A few Angus the bull teddies here and there for little local boys and that’s the lot

The amatuerish handling of recruitment by whoever is in charge of our club is bad enough but these people have also the responsibilty of finding us a new stadium,  what a bright future awaits us all. Maybe Cormack Park is the answer it could be adapted to accommodate 4000

They really need to have a rethink on how we operate as a club- cormack talks a good game but appointing Gunn been a farce. Win the Scottish cup? Not a feckin chance

Agree with the comments about Glass being let down by Cormack and his wee lacky Gunn.

Imagine him negotiating FFS?! 

Where Glass carries the can is for the shite results. 10 defeats in 22.

7 away in the last 9. 
That’s on him.

This poor window is Cormack & Gunn. 

How can we  have such an unbalanced squad still FFS? 
Incompetence from folk who are not fit to do the job by the looks of it.

Recruitment has been shocking since Glass walked in the door and in turn since Cormack has been here, it has not improved. 

Half his signings left after only six months, Samuels, Longstaff, Gurr, McGinn(technically his signing as he extended his deal). The JET is horrific and was signed off the back of a couple of goals against us, Declan Gallagher does not fit the way he wants to play, so has yet to do anything. Ramirez, Bates, Brown & Watkins(when fit) get pass marks and would probably do better in a better team.

All we can hope is that Vicente is absolutely unbelievable. Polvara is miles away and Montgomery is on a hiding to nothing and isn't actually very good either. 

This was Mowbrays first full window although I feel he definitely had a hand in the Samuels/Longstaff loan deals, Polvara likely an Atlanta recommendation, Montgomery is clearly a panic signing, maybe brown had something to do with, so Vicente is maybe his only proper signing. 

 

Anyway a few free signings will no doubt be kicking about, Snodgrass just released???
