I'm not worrying about it. All I said was that it was a balloon comment.

What goes on behind the scenes is irrelevant to any debate about the publicly-uttered comment.

McInnes made a management mistake. Not a big one, not a significant one but an amateur one.

Which isn't surprising given that it's football management we're talking here.

The reason why McInnes is getting paid over half a Mill this year is a bigger debate. Being paid for his management skills as he is, and as it's our money going into his pocket, I think it's right that we start to ask questions as to whether he's worth it?

I don't see the man as being worth anything more than thanks for your service now fuck off. He is using us and we (Milne) has allowed him to use us.

Edit: Back on topic, however cheap he is or might be, I hope Sam turns out to be good recruitment. His record hardly screams it but it's been less than 120 minutes and AFC are badly screaming out for a big capable unit up top, as we always have been since god knows how long. I loved when he had a dig at Brown personally. Brown's reaction was funny too.

Going by his interview he signed what was put in front of him without much negotiation. I doubt he is even in our top 50% in terms of wages.

Happy enough with this. he's definitely earned it and it protects us a wee bit.  I'd rather see GMS sign, but know that's not happening.
