Jim Goodwin has accepted Aberdeen fans’ rage following another loss, but he has asked them to direct their rage at him rather than the players..
The Dons could only muster a point at home against bottom-of-the-table Ross County, and the Irishman was disappointed to see them fall further behind Hearts in the Premiership table race. Goodwin was satisfied with his players’ efforts and praised them for giving their all despite being unable to break down Malky Mackay’s tenacious defense.
When their teams are winning, they are pleased with what they are seeing, but when they are not scoring, they are quick to let you know..
At the end of the game, our supporters are clearly disappointed and frustrated.
“I hope it’s not directed at the players because they put in a lot of time and effort. I’m guessing it’s more aimed at me, which is part of the game we’re playing.
“We were all walking around with our heads held high, getting lots of pats on the back because we were playing well 10 or 12 weeks ago. We haven’t picked up enough points since the World Cup break, and I’ve been in the game long enough to know how it works. I’ve also been in the game long enough to know how you get through it.”
Despite his team’s five consecutive losses, Goodwin insists he will not panic.
Instead, he wants fans to band together with their players to help them improve..
“I certainly won’t panic as that reaction at the end doesn’t phase me as I believe in the players and my staff. “I believe in the vision that we have at this club, and if you look at where we are now compared to last season, we have made progress,” Goodwin added.
“Probably not as much as some people would like as there is a real lack of patience in society now. Everyone wants instant success and returns, but the reality is that the opposition always has eleven players..
We gave it our all today, but it wasn’t enough to get the victory we needed.”
