  1. There are as yet undiscovered tribes in the Amazonian jungle who knew Stephen Glass was going to be the next Dons manager.

  3. There is a ridiculous notion that persists in some peoples minds that because someone was a hard player or a horrible bastard on the pitch that that somehow how makes them more likely to get the best out of players as they will somehow knock their own attributes into them. Often its the very attributes that they showed on the pitch that makes them unsuited to man management and I say this in direct response to those who would tout guys like Brown as just what the current squad needs to give them a good boot up the arse.

  7. Logan’s time at the club should never have ended like this. Cormack has got to address the Brown/Tonev/Logan race issue. Just because Shay is no longer on the scene doesn’t mean the issue has gone away. Whether that’s with Cormack addressing it in person and/or getting Brown to do it, something needs to be said. Hopefully there are mitigating circumstances regarding Brown’s role in that, that we are unaware of. I’d really like Brown speak up on this as soon as he arrives. it’s a great question for Cormack whenever his open mic night is!

  8. Yep as Rico alluded to above it looks like Shay has worn the red of Aberdeen for the last time and is away to Hearts on loan until season end. I'd like to thank him for his outstanding service during his 289 appearances for us and I'm sure he goes with our collective best wishes.

  11. Grow up. We don't need to be told to get behind a manager, we're not fucking morons. We can objectively look at a situation and call out the glaring issues that present themselves. We don't have to blindly support every single decision in some partisan unquestioning manner. Glass will get everyone's support. There's nothing that he's done wrong.

  14. Christ boys, the guy hasn't even started and already he's being slated. I personally think it's a ballsy move bringing in someone like Brown to assist Glass knowing the blowback there's going to be. Don't get me wrong, I've hated Brown as much as the next guy but if he pulls on an Aberdeen shirt he'll have my full support. I was a supporter of McInnes although I accepted that since the end of the year the time had come to try something new. I'll support Glass 100% - if he doesn't work out then he doesn't work out but thank Christ in my opinion we didn't hire someone else like John Hughes

  15. And there we have with what really pisses me off about the way an element of our support view Derek McInnes. That is a very all emcompassing statement. I struggle to comprehend that any Aberdeen fan can't see the benefit of the McInnes era. If you meant the latter stages of McInnes term then you should have made that clearer Tup.

  16. Yes and no. I’d compare brown to aitken so yes, but that was aitken supporting god. glass to willie Miller??? Miller was as much, if not more of a leader than aitken. What the fuck does glass bring???

  17. I understand what you are saying. We have decent players who would compliment good players. I get that. But these players have been producing nothing of late and I’d be inclined to freshen the squad up. We will anyway, just curious to see who actually survives. With a new guy coming in give him a chance to make it his squad. In regards to McLennan, I’d rather see what Ethan ross can do. I disagree with Ferguson. I don’t see him improving significantly under us any more. He needs better players to make him better. Replace him with Campbell or Jackson Irvine for example and it’s a new

  21. Look if we can win against Celtic in Glasgow with Higgins, Buckley, Morrison, Muirhead, Rutkiewicz, Foster starting one should be winning more often than we do in this neck of the woods!! It was my 24th birthday that evening we won at Parkhead. Couldn't believe we also broke their 77 game undefeated home record too.

  22. I took it as he's meaning go to Glasgow to try to win games, simple as that. Cormack also stated that there is a clear philosophy now about how we should play too. There have been times we've had the players to win in Glasgow but the tactics have appeared to be shite, the very defensive sit back and absorb until we eventually lose a goal. I don't think Cormack (who is very American in his thinking) is happy with the on the park product and believes we should entertain the fans and try to win every game. With our budget we're capable of more wins than we've had, although I agree injuries do pla

  23. Eh? Are Celtic reaping the benefits of Scott brown's coaching? What are you expecting? When do you ever hear of the good work of a youth team coach? The point is that Robson was brought in/kept on with the idea that he would progress with us. If he's being overtaken by a player with little or no coaching experience then we should look to remove him from the payroll. It reeks of the lack of planning at the club. If Robson isn't good enough to take on the assistant role at this stage then he's not going to be. The whole point in having Glass is that it's a planned, "internal" appointment. Brown

  29. I wouldn't bother. The moisture needs somewhere to go. Just get tanalised timber and be done with it. If you don't do it the way Tom suggests, it's best not to bother with it. Wood will happily get wet and dry out again if the moisture runs into the slab (or slabs?). A DPM could result in the water getting trapped. Screwing the timber to the slab a good shout. I'd recommend concrete screws, they're fucking ace.

  30. If yer going with concrete put the DPM under the slab so it stops ground moisture at the first hurdle and protects what is the main structural layer. You can then fix battens/ posts etc into the slab without damaging it - DPMs should never be fixed with nails etc as these lead to tears effectively making it useless.

  31. Think we need a bit more info. Is the shed bolted to the slabs or held down by its own weight? By slabs do you mean paving slabs similar to those used to make paths, and if so were these laid specifically as a based for the shed or were they there as a patio? Is the area around the shed flat, or are there any slopes falling towards it? My initial thought is to move or carefully dismantle the shed and put down a minimum 150mm thick concrete slab with suitable Damp proof membrane on 50mm sand and min 150mm sub-base/ well compacted hardcord. If you want to insulate it put minimum 50mm P

  35. This is basically an invitation to start throwing around random guesswork, which I'm reluctant to do because I'll freely admit I don't know how the relationship works. All I'm saying is that a lot of this - the Hernandez signing in particular - doesn't make much sense if you take it at face value. If you do take it at face value then we signed a Venezuelan international for an almost club record fee - a signing that was utterly out of step with every other signing our manager made in the eight years he was here. He was then frozen out the team, even behind Logan who had already fallen ou

  36. This makes no sense. If Gallagher was put in for "non-footballing reasons", then why wasn't Hernandez? Gallagher was actually one of Atlanta's better players last season under, funnily enough, Stephen Glass. At least, according to an Atlanta blog I read. Also, what benefit is there to Atlanta in us enjoying one of their coaches? If he's a massive success and a big club in England come in for him, you think he's going to turn that down to go back to Atlanta?

  38. Stephen Glass it is then. Would not have been in my top 5 choices, but I am not the person who gets to decide. Initially thought it was very underwhelming and disappointing, Cormack's puppet if you will, but having listened to both interviews ( Glass & Cormack ) and hearing words like " Mentality " and " Driven " and statements like " Trophies in the Cabinet " then there's no denying that they at the very least, talk a good game & want what we want.

  41. That's not what I meant, poor choice of words, sorry. I mean, he will likely not have any grudge to hold against Shay, whereas Shay will not be likely to forgive and forget.

  42. I think Neill will take a break for a couple of months & get a decent club in England in the summer. He’ll still have a relatively good reputation down there, that someone the size of an Ipswich/Sunderland type of club will appoint (not them as they have new managers, but that kind of stature). He’s not even 40 yet & in the main done well. He’d see it as a come down to come back to Scotland so early.... maybe after another failure he might not have a choice, but he will just now. Brace yourselves for the Cormack selling of Stephen Glass next week

Bilbo Baggins, or whatever the other red card lads name is, could have been a straight red for second challenge but second yellow so fair enough. Goldson should have had a card probably red, for his petulant stamp and kick. Prague boy should have had a red if his comment was racist and should now receive a long ban too. Whoever gave him a shoeing in the tunnel, however deserved, should also now be charged with assault by Police Scotland and receive a red card and subsequen

  45. If this happens, bear in mind it was proposed by The Rangers and backed up by cash bribes, then Scottish football can GTF as far as I'm concerned. Everyone is against it. They can't find a single chairman in the league outwith these two corrupt teams who backs it. So they wheel out some senile English bastard who's in charge of the Brora huns on Sportsound. The mannie gave it his full backing, seemingly completely oblivious that he was being used for propaganda purposes. AFC silent on the issue. Disgusting. Scottish football has fallen to pieces, torn to shreds by greed and chea

  46. The results since new year are to say that he wouldn't turn it around. He had nine chances to improve things and it didn't happen. Why would giving him more time be more positive than trying something new. Trying something new being a concept that he seemed incapable of comprehending as he churned out snoozefest after snoozefest.

  47. Is it really fair to say Stephen Glass “knows” Scottish football? He hasn’t played here since 2010, has never managed here, and appears to have spent a lot of time out of the country since 2012. Having PPV access to games on TV doesn’t necessarily mean he “knows” Scottish football. I don’t get the clamour for an inexperienced manager with a very poor record. Let’s see how he is doing in 5 or 6 years if we’re looking for a manager.

  48. It’s nice to see you still care KGB! couldn’t agree more. Roy Keane being a prime example. The days of that have gone. Football has moved on. we need a manager that has excellent man management skills, that the players will run and work for every minute of every game and respect. Add in a couple of coaches to help that side of it out. I’m all for a something different. A younger manager cutting his teeth with new ideas and no fear. Similar to what Gerrard has done at Rangers. There was huge risk with that appointment and although I personally can stand the guy, he has done a great j

  50. Easy for fans of any club to say that when it comes to players signing for their rivals. Sol Campbell springs to mind when he signed for Arsenal. Death threats, called Judas etc. The cold hard fact was Spurs offered him about 75k a week, whereas Arsenal offered him 104k per week. £3.9million a year or 5.4million a year? Pro football career lasts about 15-20 years depending on your position and injuries but at the same time it can be ended with one bad tackle or an awkward fall in training so you go where the money is to make sure you are set for life. Sad fact is SEVCO and the Tic can
