    Missing the point a tad.
    Should we have kept Arnasun and played deep so he didnít get exposed?

    Yes if we were to play a team with Messi in it. I hardly think Arnason was the reason Iceland defended so deep.

    Probably not but we shouldn’t have left him so exposed in the semi final.

    He rightly takes a lot of grief for that game but he has been made a scapegoat to let others off.

    As Michael Stewart pointed out after the game for the 3rd goal O’Connor lost the ball on the wing and left him one on one with the striker.Obviously he should have done better but even a 34 year old Willie Miller would have struggled if he was left in that situation.The only difference being Willie Miller would have rung O’Conners neck for doing so.

    I wouldn’t refer only to the semi final game.

    Again, you’re missing the point.
    The discussion was how he did well in today’s game (against Messi and co) and I pointed out that it suited him, because he doesn’t have the legs for it and could sit in.
    That would not be accepted by Aberdeen by many in here.

    The worst thing about the world cup is all the casual fans who happen to see an unusual objectively entertaining game (like Portugal-Spain last night) and then bitch about the other games nae being as exciting. Aye, we already ken fitba's nae that exciting a' the time. If yer nae invested in something then it probably will be boring to watch.

    I wouldn’t refer only to the semi final game in regards to O’Connor either.

    The both of them weren’t good enough for us last season but at the end of the day one of them is playing at the World Cup and the other one just signed for Bradford City.

    O’Connor had as much poor performances as Arnason did if not more but didn’t seem to get dropped when he did.

    That wasn’t because he was a better player it was because McInnes liked him more.

    I’m not muddying the water with O’Connor.
    Just because Arnasun is playing in a set up tat is so defensive, relying on luck to scrape a result doesn’t deter from the fact that Arnasun’s legs are gone and he’s not able to play for Aberdeen.
    He’s gone, time to move on and hope Devlin comes back strong for Aberdeen.

    Good to see it getting penalised.
    Our inept refs let Christophe Berra away with it every week.

    You are right to an extent,the problem is McInnes sets up the team to protect the likes of O’Connor and Considine because he knows they will struggle if we are set up to attack teams.Thats why we play with 2 holding midfielders and 1 striker even against the diddy teams.

    You could say like Arnason both Considine and O’Connor aren’t good enough for us if we want to improve,2 of them are gone,Considine is still here and O’Connor would be if he wanted to.It isn’t because those 2 are better than Arnason it’s because McInnes likes them and didn’t like Arnason.

    A manager shouldn’t be picking players on the basis of how much he likes them on a personal level.
