#announcesomeone. Just because I maybe then have some confidence in the ITK people and we will have something productive from 481 pages 🙂

For me. I expected transfers to take time just because we no longer have cash to splash and we had an awful season on top of what ever conspiracy theories people want to add on why a player would join x vs us. 

This thread isn't about the transfers... but the memories, friends, and enemies we make along the way ❤️

Is Aberdeen "Far North"?

If so potentially Sam Cosgrove (ST) or Scott Mckenna (CB)? We've been linked with both in the past.

Aberdeen do have a Europa League game tonight, so it'll be interesting to see the team later. Cosgrove is out injured, but you'd expect McKenna to start.

Not forgetting There is no money coming in from the gates for the foreseeable future to pay wages it wouldn't surprise me if it was left to the last moment...if at all

She has worked with Ronald Koeman before at Everton, he personally headhunted her.

Could be off to barca in that case. Or she could just be getting sacked 😅

 

EDIT: and I see someone has already posted this, fml

I think it was at Southampton where she worked with Koeman. She was fitness coach for youth teams and he promoted her, then she went to Hull after he left. She then joined us at the end of the season before last.

Hope she doesn't go as I have a bit of a crush on her 😍

Koeman took her from Southampton to Everton with him I think.

If we're after Shankland and Sanogo, that would certainly lean me towards thinking we're going with 3-5-2 for the long haul.

Think our formation was 3-5-2 / 5-3-2 in the recent friendly (so I read). Didn't someone else on here suggest Warnock would opt for this formation also, as it'd lessen a complete squad overall vs opting for his favoured 4-3-3.

At this point - with the squad how it is, the types of full-backs we have and the first game around the corner - I'd be surprised to see any formation but this. Either that or 4-3-3 with 3 primarily defensive CMs.

    • Yeah the fatigue thing cant be used as a mitigating factor as every team in the league is dealing with the same schedule, some with a couple of extra cup games earlier in the season and some with more than just 2 international players. Yes we have a smaller squad than some but we also have players in the squad who aren't getting minutes which is the managers decision. Fatigue management is just another facet of management and if we start to lose games because of it that's on the management team.
    • I think some of the players today looked fatigued, in my opinion. NW not picking certain players, not making substitutions earlier or even using all 5 allowed substitutions (recently), will further fatigue certain players as they will have to continue to play on. Howson, McNair, Dijksteel, Saville and Tav have all played over 1100 minutes so far this season. Only Brentford have the same amount of outfield players (5) as us, to have played over 1100 minutes. So although we both agree we are in the same predicament as every other team, our circumstances in terms of player numbers are certainly different. Regarding your other points they are well made, but I'm not sure why you have made them when the original discussion was regarding player fitness and how I thought it played a small part in today's performance.
    • Reckon we can get this lad to swap sports? He knows how to finish and isn't bad with the ball at his feet! Could play him up top! 😂  
    • Robert’s had 218mins playing time and I go along with what someone early stated, the less he plays the greater his status.  Roberts is not the saviour because the team needs a lot more then any single player can bring to the squad, unity, creativity, belief, communication.  Equally NW has managed to create a team that is hard to beat, but on the other hand, find it hard to win.  The league is not easy and we all know that a month can see a team flying high and drop 6 or 7 positions in a blink of a eye.  Lets get to the half way mark and then judge, but I feel upper mid finish.. 
    • Good Idea, I'll update the next few rounds already up then carry on from now on
