    Out of 10

    So, now that this season has basically frizzled out, with two games left to go against the Edinburgh teams, what is your marks out of 10 for the season, and why?

    I would say a 5.

    Disappointing start and end to the season, a little excitement around December when we thought maybe Cosgrove could play a bit, but reverting back to the standard cr@p near the end again.

    Tactics are shocking, trying to stop other teams playing, rather than us playing our game (not sure exactly what our game is though).

    Signings have been dreadful to say the least.

    Best bit of the season was Lewis signing a new deal. That tells you how bad the season is in my opinion.

    Because that's how many games I've enjoyed at Pittodrie this season.

    I can't even really remember who it was against, although I'm going to say Hibs.
    What I remember most about it was saying "Phew, where did that performance come from" to someone at half time.

    I’ll wait & see where we finish.

    In a “league of budgets” we should be 3rd.

    If we finish 3rd, then a 6/10. Par score.
    If 4th, then a 5/10.

    2nd would’ve made it an 8/10
    2nd and a cup a 9/10.

    So we’ll be a 5 or a 6.

    For entertainment... lucky to get a 2/10

    Stand alone: 7

    Big picture: 3.35627922

    I'd rather be in Europe for lots of reasons but maybe missing out will give the club a kick up the bakey it needs.

    At face value cup final, semi final and finishing 3rd/4th it should be pass marks but given the turgid football for me it's no more than a 3.1415926 (a Killie one preferably)

    This season is undoubtedly a step in the wrong direction in terms of where we are in the league points wise and an enormous step in the wrong direction football wise so no more than a mediocre 5 the same as we get from many of the players. I could understand the eye wateringly bad football if the results showed it worked but it evidently doesn't.

    Miss out on Europe and this will downgrade to a 4 for underachieving compared to budget.

    The season isn't over yet, so not quite ready for assessment.
    Although whoever is doing the due diligence before signing new players should be shot / fired.
    That can happen right away.

    We definitely should not be signing anyone who is injured, carrying an injury or has just come back from a major injury. It hasn’t served us well.

    Its a 6/10 from me.

    A cup final and semi is always pleasing, and the emergence of some young boys has been pleasing too. Agree with most that the football on show has been poor. We seem to get worse to watch with every passing year under mcinnes.

    Personally dont care where we finish, a bit of a longer break might be good for us.

    Key summer for the club with such a high turnover of players expected. Feels like the end of a cycle, and although I don't expect us to get every signing right, we do need to get 2/3 key positions filled properly.

    I am happy to give mcinnes another season, as i dont see any viable alternative and he does keep us competing deep into the cups and the right end if the table, however, if we see another season of poor football and little progress then i would be inclined to make a managerial change to freshen the whole club up.

    The thing is you don't as League Cup starts two days after Europa League

    Each to their own, rather a trip to Rijeka than Ross County for the third time for me

    It's a p1ss poor 3/10 for me.
    Been following the dons through thick and thin for about 45 years now (think I was about 7 or 8 when I took in my first match) anyway i have never been so bored and frustrated and basically meh with the shambolic football on show for most of this season and part of last, it's pretty much consistently eye bleeding stuff and we are regressing at a helluva rate.
    Actually make that a 2/10

    Do we honestly think that we even deserve to be playing European football next season? I don't
