  1. While I don't agree with everything Dave Cormack says or does, the boy has put money into the club, not only helping fund the training ground but also steering the club through a pretty rocky 12-18 months due to covid and then giving the manager funds to invest in the team afterwards. He's also tried stuff with the merkland which has proved popular. If we're calling for him to go after that then I don't see why anyone would ever want to take us on.

  2. The whole link up with Atlanta was his doing and so far it's been atrocious. Although we can't really get rid of him now that he's named the training ground after himself.

  3. I have no time for him from his support for the Atlantic league through his constant carping about restrictions during a global pandemic to claiming that after an exhaustive search a development team manager from the MLS who just happened to be his mate was the best candidate he has completely called things wrong. I would like him to go if I am honest but financially I am not sure club will survive him going so suspect much like Glass we are stuck with him.

  4. I thought the way Dykes pulled his hand away was pretty telling but fortunately they had blurry mobile phone quality video footage that made it impossible to overturn. I agree VAR ruins the game though. Every time someone scores a goal now a little part of your brain is telling you to hold on a minute because there might be some borderline foul somewhere. It's completely undermined the biggest appeal of football which is the raw immediate reaction to a goal being scored. Prioritising technical accuracy over entertainment is just daft.

  8. According to former director Andrew Little DC and his American pals are into afc to the tune of 20 mill. It's hard to say he's not put his money where his mouth is. Glass was always a gamble (and it doesn't look a good one at the moment) but it was his to make. Unless we get caught up in the relegation dogfight you would think, as cormacks man, glass will get the season but we don't really have any previous form to compare to. Maybe he will be ruthless

  10. Obviously it's Cormack's fault for hiring Glass, but really what you want from a chairman is someone that invests money and he's done that to be fair. Most chairmen are clueless when it comes to the actual football bit so that isn't a fatal flaw necessarily if we can tombola our way into the right manager. If he refuses to sack Glass then that will be different but it's starting to make Cormack look bad so I think he'll do it out of self-preservation if nothing else.

  11. Thumped 5-0 and 4-0 by Rangers. 4-0 down to Celtic before half-time, and various other tankings. Taken apart 3-0 by Motherwell at Hampden. Taken apart 3-0 by Motherwell at Fir Park (twice). Taken apart 3-0 by Motherwell at Pittodrie. Embarrassed 4-1 by Ross County away. Embarrassed 4-0 by Ross County at home. Hosed 3-0 by Hamilton, who have beaten us a remarkable amount of times. Walloped 5-1 at home to St Johnstone. Fola Esch won their first ever European game against Aberdeen. Scored once in 10 games last season. Scored just 36 in 38 games. It's a poor run we're on but the hyperbole is laughable. I presume you mean Calderwood. Not sure I would class that as recent, but binning him and McInnes were not the wrong decisions.

  12. Fair comment. In Clarke’s defence, these last few games we look like we have turned a corner and made a bit of progress. Unfortunately I don’t think we are in the class of a Sweden, Norway or Czech Republic therefore we will probably end up being beaten in the playoffs. I would still question some of Clarke’s tactics at times. The other night we could all see Fraser was making nothing of it and it was crying out for Patterson yet he waited until about 10 minutes from the end before making the change. Also bringing on McGregor for Hendry, just to drop McTominay into defence looked a pointless sub when we were desperate for a goal and taking off Billy Gilmour when we needed to keep the ball at the end was a strange decision. From the outside, he certainly seems to have fostered a good bond between the players though and no one can deny they are willing to fight for him. Dykes is also an upgrade on a number of those who were given a chance before him (McBurnie, Brophy, Shankland, Burke, Fletcher). He may not be world class but he is a threat and must be a nightmare to play against. Arguably the best goal scoring threat since Kenny Miller.

  13. The good thing about Moldova is that it's the first of the two fixtures. The double header does seem to throw up a few difficulties for us. A big first fixture and we struggle to match that in the second, as if we've already done the hard work. A poor first fixture and we are a bit shaky in the second. It must be a difficult psychology for the manager, it's not really like anything else in football. A European game is two legs against the same team, which gives it the air of a single game. It's almost like we have to treat each game in a double header as a single fixture, where it only counts if you meet your objectives in both.

  18. I got up early to watch this match. Was fucked off with it all and turned the tv over with 5 mins of the game left... I was not expecting that score when I saw it later on.

  19. Have to disagree Haar. Don’t think either goal was contentious. As Rico says Last nights was rightly given and 2nd on Saturday should never been disallowed in the first place.

  20. Just like 1700 dirty smelly bigots singing about Irish terrorists deemed acceptable but an impressionable thirteen year old launching an empty plastic bottle is worthy of such a furore

  21. Love the way Pirate broadcasting of TV is deemed unacceptable for an owner of a premier league club but being involved in state sponsored murder and terrorism gets a pass.

  22. Maybe a handful of match of the day highlights per season. Usually only if there's a Scotland player kicking about. Often check to see if Scotland players are getting a game or not too.

  24. Yep, that's what fitba is all about. At least they're not trying to hide it. I don't get why people even watch that pish down South, it's pathetic. Although it won't stop Scotland trying to follow in its footsteps. I'm guessing that if nobody walked away with Ashley in charge, a Saudi dictator won't be a problem.
