But that's just a slogan though isn't it? I'm pretty certain that McInnes is buying players that he believes will be as good in their position as Joe is in his, it just turns out that they are not. It is very difficult to tranpose Joe's abilities as a goalie to an outfield player. He's just fantastically good at what he does (I'd argue the best in the league). There aren't really any attributes of Joe's that you think "if only Nial McGinn had those attributes he'd be amazing" for example. You could look at Shinnie and say "if every player had his work ethic, aggression and leadership" then we could look for those in potential recruits. Joe is just ace at one-on-ones, shot stopping and dealing with crosses which are largely useless in the hands of Curtis Main.

No, for me Lewis is class and the standard he sets in goalkeeping should be the standard we look to bring in for any position in the team.  I'd also be happy if Shinnie was used as a marker for quality of our signings.

Easier said than done though in the market we trade in and we shouldn't just be signing players to make up numbers like we appear to be doing this summer.
