  1. Yes.He swears by taking cold showers regularly.Says he doesnt feel the cold as much.Asked him "but does it not therefore make you more sweaty in warmer weather?"........not according to him While Im here,carried on a bit more with the East Aberdeenshire coast walk,mentioned above by walking to stonehaven via Crawton where the last of the Puffins were at before disappearing til next Spring.Awesome place for the cliffs alone,and also for the amount and variety of birdlife.Bonus sunset at Stonehaven later

  3. When Milne was still at the helm,I wanted shot of McInnes at least a season before now.I'm as bored as anyone of the current style of football. But,he has shown that he can bring together teams that can be entertaining to varying degrees,and compete reasonably well in competitions. Not due to managerial or tactical nous IMO,but the ability to attract a good standard of players that either click as a group or they dinna.He doesnt seem to know whats needed to suit a groups of players that isnt working. Why am I prepared to give him another chance? Because I think since '16/'17 he's taken the easier option of grinding out results,without testing enough whether a current squad would benefit from trying something more attack minded.So a bit of pressure might,push him out his comfort zone,and freshen the thinking.Depends how forceful DC is with it,and how McInnes responds,but worth a try IMO before an expensive change. I dont think the players enjoy the current style either.
  4. Always better to evolve by your own means,and he should have done so more than he has by now,but aye,am prepared to allow McInnes adjustment to the alleged new football philosophy,and how DC goes about imposing it if signs of improvement arent there.
  5. Aye,...but if we cant afford to sack him,Covid doesnt make any difference RST Also agree with most of what Kenny says.If McInnes didnt think lumping the ball to Brucie was a good idea,he could have nipped it in the bud early on,if not worked on it in training. He was asked post match why he started off so slowly,but avoided answering by talking about the Huns instead.
  6. What little positives there were - Hernandez might not be as unpromising as he showed last season.Edmondson looks more than a physical specimen,could be useful.Like to see him with Anderson or (preferably)mcGinn alongside. Other than that,we'll need to do more than repeat the same old,same old if we want to entice myself and others to want to get to Pittodrie regularly
  7. Usually takes us going behind for McInnes to do something,hopefully revert to DCs demand of attacking football ..... Edmondson warming up...
  8. fluffed that last post(Corrected by Tom)...though I cant see an Edit button? EDIT - Ah I see it now under this post,but the option must disappear after a certain amount of time
  9. Brucie,Hayes,McGinn and Kennedy buzzing about the box could be interesting.Not confident though,will also take a draw. 2 - 2 (McGinn,Considine)

  11. Its a fair comment.He did well for us,decent goal to game ratio,but maybe he was overshadowed by Joe Harper at the time.I only saw him in the flesh a few times.I think he got a lot of his goals by scavenging around the box rather than wonder goals,and his play maybe suited a more European style of football? Re the topic. Agree with most of what Ten Caat says.Thought Kennedy was far more refined than McKimmie,though I cant recall seeing him play anywhere else in defence,but possibly did with Falkirk? Buchan was a fine player but cant find a place for him with Willie in this team To boost the Current squad - Kennedy at right back,Miller knocking McKenna into shape,and MacDougall alongside Sam to see what they could do.Last ones tricky,thought about Hayes or Bumper on the wing,but need a bit of class in the middle with Jim Bett
  12. Shearer and Harper or MacDougall.
  13. Dyou not think a 75%(25% with whites) fatherless home rate is OTT?.Not to take anything away from the tough job single mums have,but it was incentivised(and taken advantage of) back in the 60s/70s for political gain in the US(the black vote,so I believe).Studies do show that children fare better from a stable 2 parent household.If you look at the background of those commiting crime,absentee fatherism is a common feature https://www.theguardian.com/society/2001/apr/05/crime.penal I hear what youre saying about SJW uncomfortable comments,they spout truths even if theyr a pain in the arse.As long as it remains verbal,good luck to them. Violence on the other hand,nah!! Weve got high profile figures in the US saying they stand with the protesters.Will a young loon listening to that,and watching the looting too,not think that's all he has to do to get him what he wants. Its a slippery slope If Elders statistics are correct,and 13 % of the population are the source of 50%of the crime,then there are going to be a disproportionate amount of black arrests.So youd think therefore there would also be around a 50% death rate at police hands as a result,but the stats say otherwise https://www.statista.com/statistics/585152/people-shot-to-death-by-us-police-by-race/ So is one problem that black deaths may be being highlighted more by the media,or whoever? for whatever reason? I don't know.Am sure there are Hispanics and Asians criminals who have suffered similar fates,but without,or less outrage
  14. Am usually a bit meh about guys coming back,esp at Jonnys age,but in his case I'd make an exception.Sure we could squeeze a good year or two out of him yet
