Fan’s View: Aberdeen 2015-16


Is Aberdeen prepared for the season ahead?

Yes, we’ve kept our best players and added three more whilst the European campaign has given us early match sharpness.

What signing are you most looking forward to seeing?

Graeme Shinnie. One of the best (if not the best) left backs in the country and has shown his versatility by filling in comfortably at right back and central midfield.

Aberdeen’s Key Man?

Adam Rooney, his goals are crucial.

What is Aberdeen’s weakest link?

Goalkeeper. Neither Brown or Langfield are reliable enough so hopefully Ward can build on the good performances of the early European matches.

How would you rate manager Derek McInnes and can he improve upon last season?

Without doubt McInnes is one of the best managers in the country and I am delighted that he extended his stay with us. Going another round further in Europe, a better cup run and pushing closer to Celtic would be an improvement.

Is there anyone or any club that you are worried about facing and could cause problems for the Dons?

Without getting complacent, NO!

Inverness have lost some key players, Dundee United have sold their best players with no proper replacements and it’s too soon for Hearts to get close to us.
