A quiet week in the People's Republic of Aberdonia, unless you count the links between our current manager and our previous manager with the now-finally-vacant Scotland manager's position. Mark McGhee is ruling himself out this time, which will mean a sigh of relief for the Dons supporters who believed those bitter Motherwell fans when they informed us that he would leave as soon as the first available job turned up.
Four months would have been extraordinarily early to jump ship, but considering the leaks he's found in the Pittodrie trawler's hull in that short time, he may have been tempted to hoist himself up the flagpole and see who salutes before the good ship AFC sinks further than RBS.
Meanwhile, former Dons chief of defence staff Jimmy Calderwood is being touted for a sip from the poisoned chalice. There are worse candidates, for sure. In fact, are there any better?
