That's McInnes clawed back some of the £750K. I'm reckoning Milne will be thinking it was worth it this morning.

If nothing else, the compensation payment if he leaves whilst still under contract will be pretty substantial now, no?

He's been on the £750k for almost a year now with around 18 months or so left on his contract. There may or may not be a release clause specifying what a club would have to cough up to secure his services but if not the balance of his salary remaining would be the usual starting point in negotiations, though in practice i think we would be doing well to get £500k.

However just cannot see right now who is going to be wanting his services in the near future. EPL clubs I would say are beyond him, just not a big enough name for them to be interested. The Ipswich job that Lambert got a few days back is probably the level that might be interested in him....the WBA job will always be one he gets linked with if/when it becomes available but they are going well right now with promotion a target and if they get back up to the Premier League it again becomes out of his reach.

All in all I think we are "stuck" with him till his contract runs out. This season hasn't been great (though starting to improve) but he has enough goodwill with Milne and the board that even if we were to finish 8th as we are at present his job would be perfectly safe. He gets his hands on the new training ground in the summer (W.A.N.K.S/unexpected delays permitting). A decent summer recruitment and better start in the league next season will be expected....if he does then a new contract offer will be forthcoming around this time next year. Whether or not he would sign it I have no idea. A similar start as this season and I think he would need to win one of the Cups to get an extension offer.

I highly doubt we'd force a manager change during construction of a new stadium. McInnes has been heavily involved in the promo, would be surprised to see him canned before he gets to use it. Leaving for another club is different but I suspect he missed the boat on a 'bigger' club and mid table championship is probably his best bet.

Milne paid McInnes over THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION last season.

Any word on when you will back this up with some evidence?

I don't need to back it up. It's a fact. As everyone who is close to Aberdeen knows.

I'll remind you again soon.  Hopefully you can find some evidence one day.

Why hopefully? You enjoy having your cynicism, your ignorance and your stupidity exposed? Weirdo.

To help you save face. Plus I’m genuinely asking for evidence.

Another day, another Championship club looking for a manager.
How long before McInnes is quoted for the Notts Forest job  :dunno:

Honestly don't think any of the Championship clubs that consider themselves "Premier League promotion contenders" even give McInnes a second thought. He is not a name that would excite their fans, he's already had a shot at Bristol City where he was at best underwhelming and isn't known for getting his teams playing an exciting brand of attacking football.

His best chance would be at Championship club trying to avoid relegation.....Rotherham, Brentford or the like. Ipswich was one where I thought he might have a chance but they went for a "usual suspect" in Lambert, who has by all accounts been disastrous and looks like he will get them relegated before February is out. In which case the job could be available again fairly soon.

To be honest TC I wasn't rerally suggesting that I believe McInnes was a serious contender for the role BUT it's winter break, the red tops in Scotland are keen to create stories and I'd be very surprised if they didn't start trying to link McInnes to any vacant Championship job.
I honestly beleive that Steve Clarke might be a more serious contender and more acceptable to their support. Possibility that Clarke might be starting to think that he has built his stock up considerably and starting to see his team break up (Jones to THEM, Stewart back to Brum and Brophy getting linked with Leeds Utd).
Does the lure of staying back in his native Ayrshire outweigh any desire he might have to move back south of the border again ?

Don't know, just thinking out aloud  :dunno:

Wholeheartedly agree that Clarke is a far more viable option. Is a far bigger name than DM down south and far better reputation. If an offer came, even from an EFL 1 club, I think he would jump at the chance.....purely by reason he moved south to Chelsea in 87 and all his career was down south till the Killie job came up. Up here I think only ourselves, Hivs, Hearts and Celtic would be jobs that would attract him (no to sevco for obvious reasons)

If he does indeed lose those 3 players this month then I think Killie's season is probably fucked but he would still have them finishing 5th or 6th.

They said that about Derby County but he knocked it back. Haven't been paying too much attention but last time I looked Forest's finances and off field set up looked in a similar league to Sevco's.
I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

Martin O'Neill confirmed as Forest manager.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?
