I think KFP may have been referring to Gleeson with the comment not Stewart.

Stewart went into January as one of the SPL best players who, iirc, scored 8 and had 14 assists to his name, for some reason he comes up here is played on the wing and struggling to make any sort of impact, due mainly to our manager not knowing how to get the best out of him.


Stewart was playing 10 recently and was just as shite then as he was today.

No way has he been shit in all his games for us, but he is no fucking winger and not a defender.  It was a strange signing for us, he certainly is a talented player, but I doubt it will happen for him with us no matter how much he wants it.

He should have stayed with Killie

Personally don't remember him playing there for us, absolutely certain he's been out wide every game I have seen.
They will never forget you till somebody new comes along.

another thing, the 3 behind the striker should be interchangeable.

If Stewart can beat a player and find a pass from the 10 he should also be able to do it from wider.

Wasn't he more of a wide player for Dundee?

I am referring to Gleeson TC, not Stewart, as DeeDon has spotted.

Although, having said that, I'd still play Stewart over May every day of the week if he was playing beside, or just behind, Cosgrove, and not out wide. Stevie May has had more than enough opportunities and hasn't taken them, it really is as simple as that, he's not produced the goods and Cosgrove has 7 in his last 6 without May in the team ( I think ) so I don't see how dropping May has any bearing on our poor home form.

Agree with that. Cosgrove plays better with someone beside him, the fact that it was may is kinda irrelevant because he just needs someone along side him.

On the game, have to say, I thought we played pretty poorly, (from the 20 mins of REDTV highlights). Could have and probably should have scored more but then again, the huns should have put a few more of those chances away. They sliced through our midfield and defence with absolute ease. The chance where morelos got booked for diving, I think consi was lucky there. Had his arms all over him, regardless of the dive. Another player might have got the pen.

Consi's missed header towards the end was bad, but I also think mckenna should have put it away.

Still, way better than midweek, although it'd be hard not to improve on that shit fest. Glad we're still in this, hopefully they remember there is nothing to fear down at snake mountain.

Honestly don't get what you guys are seeing in Stewart that justifies him getting a place in the side. He was no kingly bad in his first spell for us and is every bit as bad now. I'm not saying he's bad....he was great for Killie and Dundee....but rank rotten for us and apparently even worse for Birmingham. As I've said....some players just don't suit certain teams' and he doesn't suit us.

McInnes can take the blame for this....he likes players up front to press defenders and track back whenever necessary. That's never been Stewart's game. He's also slow and horrendously one footed. Oh and predictable.I was horrified when we re-signed him despite his Killie form and have seen nothing to change my mind ever since. Once he was 8n the door obviously I wanted him to do well but just cannot see it ever happening for him in Aberdeen. I dread to think that he will be handed a 2 or 3 year deal, he keeps getting picked now whereas at least in his first spell when he did nothing hec was dropped for great chunks of the season.

I wrote Forrester off by mid August as a dud. I'm hereby writing Stewart off as a dud for us....but he might be great for someone else.

They broke on us 3-4 times the whole game, mainly when our set pieces broke down. They certainly did not cut through us with ease.
Morelos was a clear dive and never ever a penalty.

Strange thing is I’m not that fucked that Cosgrove will miss the replay.

As I said, this was only based upon the 20 mins of RedTV highlights, but it looked like they did break more than that and our defence was all over the place.  A competent team would have despatched those chances.

He played up front as a striker for Dundee and played through the middle at Killie.

He did play wide on a number of occasions against us for Dundee, but he played a lot through the centre too. But, you're right, the 3 behind the striker have always been interchangeable under McInnes and that is where Stewart (and Wright and to an extent GMS) really struggles. Yesterday, McLennan played almost the whole of the game (that he was on for) in the centre, which is really unusual. On Wednesday, Stewart played a huge chunk of the Hamilton game in the centre (and did nothing). Neither got close enough to Cosgrove when he was winning the flick ons (neither did McGinn). Stewart clearly has ability on the ball but he needs to be that little quicker in releasing it (a prime example near the end yesterday when he dithered for ages on the ball - when he was through the middle - allowing a hun to nip in with an easy challenge. That said, despite having a poor game, I thought he tracked back quite well (for him), and I understand why McInnes wouldn't have trusted McLennan to do similar (McGinn's tracking back yesterday was excellent, with a number of well timed challenges).

Overall, we probably did enough to win the game. The McKenna header in the first half (great ball from Stewart) should have been directed down the way, the Considine effort(s) and the McKenna follow up as well as another couple of scrambles that didn't fall were enough to get another goal on another day. The Wilson sub was too late in the day for me, and I'd like to have seen May on for Stewart for the last 15 too just to change things up a bit. I think that was our chance to get through to be honest, but we'll go into the game with a bit of confidence nevertheless. I thought our back 4 was very good yesterday, and Shinnie put in a great shift too. Brilliant from GMS putting himself in a dangerous position in order to win the penalty. McGinn would have wimped out of that.

A tourist wanders into a back-alley antique shop in San Francisco's Chinatown. Picking through the objects on display he discovers a detailed, life-sized bronze sculpture of a rat. The sculpture is so interesting and unique that he picks it up and asks the shop owner what it costs. "Twelve dollars for the rat, sir," says the shop owner, "and a thousand dollars more for the story behind it." "You can keep the story, old man," he replies, "but I'll take the rat." The transaction complete, the tourist leaves the store with the bronze rat under his arm. As he crosses the street in front of the store, two live rats emerge from a sewer drain and fall into step behind him. Nervously looking over his shoulder, he begins to walk faster, but every time he passes another sewer drain, more rats come out and follow him. By the time he's walked two blocks, at least a hundred rats are at his heels, and people begin to point and shout. He walks even faster, and soon breaks into a trot as multitudes of rats swarm from sewers, basements, vacant lots, and abandoned cars. Rats by the thousands are at his heels, and as he sees the waterfront at the bottom of the hill, he panics and starts to run full tilt. No matter how fast he runs, the rats keep up, squealing hideously, now not just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to the water's edge a trail of rats twelve city blocks long is behind him. Making a mighty leap, he jumps up onto a light post, grasping it with one arm while he hurls the bronze rat into San Francisco Bay with the other, as far as he can heave it. Pulling his legs up and clinging to the light post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of rats surges over the breakwater into the sea, where they drown. Shaken and mumbling, he makes his way back to the antique shop. "Ah, so you've come back for the rest of the story," says the owner. "No," says the tourist, "I was wondering if you have a bronze Rangers fan."
