It's difficult to be happy about this season. That it ended with a win completely failed to paper over any of the massive cracks, which is probably good news in terms of the mooted summer revolution. None of us expect World Cup stars to make Aberdeen their home after South Africa, but change is needed throughout the squad, and the board of directors must back the manager's ambitions with at least some cash.
McGhee has been refreshingly honest since the season ended, telling the fans via the club website that he will be sweating blood to put things right. But it is still confusing how a team that qualified for Europe last season can replace a purportedly worse manager with a supposedly better new man and drop from fourth place to ninth in a year.
Still, the good news is that Mark McGhee has a reputation as a one-season wonder, so if the season just past represents the peak of his tenure at the Dons then we have an exciting drop down the divisions to look forward to.
