Craig Brown: Signed off at Pittodrie with victory

Niall McGinn's double sealed a 2-0 win over Hearts to keep the Dons' top-six hopes alive and Brown, who will move aside for Derek McInnes after next weekend's game at Dundee United, left the field to a warm reception.

Brown said: "I'm not an emotional guy but it was nice.

"They always applaud the Aberdeen manager up the track at the start of the game and I always acknowledge it. But going back at half-time if you're not winning: 'Get it sorted out Brown,' they tell you.

"But the support to me since I have been here has been fantastic. I'm grateful because it has been consistently supportive, even when you lose a game. Today was very pleasant."

McGinn scored 10 minutes into each half but Brown felt the scoreline should have been greater, Josh Magennis with two efforts ruled out for offside.

"We have played better than that this season and we have had I don't know how many 0-0 draws (six), and in many of these games we were far more accomplished than we were today," he added.

"Niall scored a couple and we had two chalked off for offside which were onside. I have looked at it on the tape.

"I wouldn't like to think that if it came to goal difference, two wrong decisions go against us. I don't normally complain but I think it's justifiable to complain when they are wrong, particularly if you win.

"We are pleased there is still an outside chance."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
