Barry Robson: Aberdeen midfielder is recovering well from knee surgery

Robson had been expected to be on the sidelines for another couple of weeks following minor knee surgery last month, but the 34-year-old is poised to return to training in the next few days.

"Barry is knocking his pan in to get back for the Partick game," McInnes said. "He's working hard and he's probably a wee bit ahead of where we thought in terms of his physical state.

"He is back running again and looking strong and powerful. There's not been any setbacks since the operation and he has given himself every chance.

"At the moment I'm not going to count him in for Partick but I certainly won't rule him out.

"We'll have a better idea by the end of the week once he starts doing his twisting and turning and striking the ball.

"Hopefully he'll be back with the first team proper in the next few days and we'll see how he is. At the moment he has every chance."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
