  1. Goodwin hasn't failed at Aberdeen. He like Robinson should be judged with his own squad. The comments on Robinson and Goodwin since they took on their new jobs are just laughable.
  2. No selection dilemma for me. Grieve has offered way more than Brophy and with Main in his current form then 2 decent strikers. I think Robinson will bring in another striker in the summer window. Robinson also know how to get the best out of Main. We are paying too much for Brophy who I know has been injured quite a bit but hasn't justified the outlay. Not convinced he ever will. Personally I'd offload him if we could.
  3. Ok nws, lets see where Conor Ronan is in 2-3 seasons time and we can decide who was right 😀
  4. Probably to get a decent fee for him. It wasn't with the view of him being Wolves first team material. He's 24 also ! Been out on loan all of his time at Wolves and will be again for any time he stays on that contract. Yes he is a decent player at our level but I'm sure we will find a replacement
  5. So lets just see where he ends up over time. Bet its not at the level you have him. Aberdeen are League One and Hearts are bottom end of Championship ! I grew up watching Fitzpatrick, Richardson, Abercromby, Bone, Stark, Lambert and more recently McGinn and McLean. They are all way better than Ronan. Your also way over the top again in your condemnation of SR.
  6. 100% correct IMO. It really is laughable. Conor Ronan is League One in England and no higher. I've seen 76 of the 92 league teams in England and some 3 and 4 times. Followed Ipswich Town for 4 years as season ticket holder and he'd never have got in the Town teams I watched. Still follow Ipswich and he wouldn't get in their first team. Not the slightest bit surprised that McGrath is not getting a start at Wigan I remeber the bull after Adam Hamill worldy
  7. Maybe get top 6 that way ? What is wrong with Carson ? We are current not very good and that was the case under Goodwin which Robinson is paying a heavy price for. Bet he can't wait to get players in who he knows well and can improve us

    VAR Poll

    Referees won't be hiding with the introduction of VAR. I would doubt there is a top level official who will be against VAR. VAR makes a referees job way easier. Glad its was voted for as would have looked a right diddy league if they didn't. Astro in the top league is bad enough !
  9. Every game under Goodwin was a bloody hard watch. We are nowhere near the side we were last season. I feel sorry for Robinson at what he inherited and where he wants to be. Get over this season somhow and then root and branch clearout over 2-3 windows. Lets just sit back and watch how Goodwin does at Aberdeen !!
  10. RC are top six because they have a better manager than Goodwin. Mackay is who Aberdeen should have appointed
  11. The players need their backsides booted but Robinson is the wrong person to do it. Ran away from Motherwell and left them in a mess. Preserved his rep from season before but was taking them down. He's going nowhere atm so we better just hope its not another Stubbs but it has all the hallmarks.
  12. We have been utter junk all season. We were a better team last season. We won against as poor an Aberdeen side as you will see. We fluked a win at Hibs. But for Anwick we could have been 2 or 3 down at half time versus StJ. The chances missed by United were a disgrace too. Motherwell battered us an finally scored in last seconds. How Aberdeen appointed Goodwin i'll never know. I stated at the time i wasn't convinced by Robinson appointment despite the vast majority on here welcoming it His man management for me is hugely suspect, flies off the handle and irrational. He has had one good season at Motherwell and that is it. For me though we need to get over the line this season. Allow him to get his own players in and then really judge. If Goodwin had stayed I'm not truly convinced we'd have beeen a whole lot better but we'll never know.
  13. Well the one thing I like about Robinson is his passion. I noticed the abuse he was getting Saturday and its a complete disgrace. It doesn't matter a jot what your earnings are nobody should be subjected to it and it is maybe about time we had a few more police about during matches to stamp it out.
  14. You'll be happy if we get 3rd in the league and 2 cup finals?
  15. Somebody mentioned Tait had been signed for another season. I was hoping not as I think we have seen the best of him. Motherwell saw the best of him 2 seasons back ! Maybe as a squad player but that would be it for me.
  16. So what kind of results did you expect in the matches outside of RC and Dundee ? His start is not dreadful and there isn't enough in the performances of the team to question why he was appointed that is why I criticised your post which I did read carefully. I also made the point that I think the same set of results would have happened under JG
  17. We have had 2 winnable matches under Robinson, RC and Dundee. He's at 50% win rate for me. It would have been no better under Goodwin. The abuse of Robinson is a total joke. We can judge him next season when he has his own players in.
  18. Ronan is league one in England and no better. Jones is a wasted talent who is steadily working his way down the leagues.
  19. More importantly for me is that its not his achilles injury again
  20. 100%, would love us to be top 6 for all the reasons you list and others but just don't think we are good enough. Would love to be wrong though but just can't see it happening.
  21. For me its an important game to put a further distance from the bottom 2. Lose it and the gap between us and Dundee is 7 points. We lost a 10 point gap after we lost to Dundee at home ! Top six I agree total delusion.
  22. Yep the one I remember they were down to 9 men and we huffed and puffed to get over the line
  23. Supporters disappointed but that is it, not sacking the guy or questioning his appointment for losing to RC away ? Plenty on here falling over themselves to praise his appointment and now 3 games later questioning the whole thing. We didn't need a new manager bounce, if anything it was likely to go the other way as we haven't been all that great up until our wee run of wins. I think Robinson has been dropped in it a bit as I'm not convinced we would have done any better under Goodwin in the last 3 games.
  24. Seriously we have played Hearts and Celtic who are streets ahead of us. RC on a good run of form away is always a tricky fixture. Our good wee run of form wasn't all that great and but for having a superb goalkeeper we would have lost a good few of them. Grieve struggled badly against Hearts, Main made a difference when he came on with his physical strength. I know Main has been mince but Robinson only knows the Main at Motherwell so its not beyond reason to see why he's playing him atm. I'm amazed that Aberdeen took Goodwin. I very much doubt we would have done any better in these 3 games under Goodwin. I know you weren't overly impressed with the appointment of Robinson as I was too but we really need to give the guy a chance. My gut feel is that his teams are a lot more expansive and attack minded that the sterile [email protected] that Goodwin has served up for quite a while. My gut feel also is that there will be quite a bit of change in the summer with contracts finishing and Robinson wanting to build his own team We are very poor overall and for me I think we'll be 3rd bottom, we are not top six at all despite the delusions of many.
