Pars Shambles Proves Size of the Job
- Updated: April 29, 2012
RUSSELL Anderson branded the Dons a shambles after their second-half capitulation to basement boys Dunfermline.
The 33-year-old stopper believes the club needs a shake up from top to bottom after another disastrous display.
And the former Scotland star reckons gaffer Craig Brown has a big rebuilding job to do in the summer.
Ando said: “When the Pars scored we went to pieces and were an absolute shambles.
“It shows you just how big a job the manager’s got in the summer. It’s asking an awful lot of young players to come in to this team.
“When Dunfermline scored they got a huge lift and some of our players disappeared.
“We capitulated and didn’t have anything to come back at them with.
‘That’s a sad indictment of where this club is just now.
“Where we are now isn’t acceptable for Aberdeen. We need a big change.”
Fuming Pittodrie chief Brown slammed his side’s defending but refused to question their attitude.
He said: “I’m angry and disappointed. The game was there to be won.
“We dominated the first half and part of the second then committed three horrendous defensive errors.
“Dunfermline deserve credit for scoring three goals but we deserve criticism for defending so poorly.
“But no-one can fault the attitude – we just made a number of mistakes.”
