The feud continues
It is not a surprise but the news that Nick Blackman has followed Craig Brown to Aberdeen has got to be a sickener for Motherwell fans. The striker grabbed ten goals for the Steelemen in the first half of the campaign but he will be giving the Dons fans hope for the rest of the campaign.
Blackman is suffering from a virus and may not be available for the Dons at the weekend but with a lot of big games to come, that won’t be an issue. The hat-trick at the weekend by Chris Maguire lifted the spirits of many Aberdeen fans but they are already prepared for the exit of the hit man. Blackman may be able to step in until the end of the season and offer Aberdeen fans other reasons to cheer.
It has been a good day for Aberdeen fans with the capture of Fulham midfielder Robert Milsom. The midfielder may not have had too many first team appearances at Craven Cottage but a number of loan deals has seen the player grab a fair bit of experience.
These deals will further enhance the recovery of Aberdeen under Craig Brown as new signings are always likely to give a team a lift.
As for Motherwell though, new boss Stuart McCall has a lot to do to prove he is an SPL level boss and to raise morale at the club. McCall has already voiced his disproval at being unable to compete with English non-league clubs but surely he knew this before he agreed the deal at Fir Park.
