The implications may be inconsequential. They may be utterly alarming.
Here from the Aberdeen FC site:
BREAKING NEWS | Aberdeen FC is pleased to confirm that Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty have elected to remain at Pittodrie
I thought it must be a spoof. Sadly – see http://www.afc.co.uk/news/9551.php#.WULf6saQ17o – not.
What on earth went wrong from yesterday’s Aberdeen statement saying both had been cleared to speak to Sunderland, all financial matters between the clubs having been settled?
We awaited a proper explanation from SAFC. Is this it? ….
Sunderland statement on McInnes…
