  1. Not so sure on the scoring part Agree though our defending at set plays is very poor. Responsible for at least two against United and the one against Alloa.
  2. I prefer the term 'niche' but that's life I don't get to see the Dee regularly so that may colour my view. I agree with others above who said he should have come and taken a cross ball a couple of times on Friday but there was nothing that horrible. He picked some cross balls well at other times. I don't think he's God's gift to goalkeeping but I don't see it as a priority compared to someone composed who can see and exploit a bit of space.
  3. Can anyone think of a bad mistake Hamilton has made so far this season? He has six clean sheets from nine games ffs. No-one's perfect but there is no way the keeper position should be a priority, he's fine and with a bit of love and confidence can only improve.
  4. Agree with some above that McGowan massively steadied the ship on Friday. A lot of the match was end-to-end pinball caused largely by our young team failing to retain the ball. Heads gone everywhere in a rush to try and get the deficit back. Was crying out for someone willing to put their foot on it and McGowan was that man. In hindsight he should definitely have started for his experience alone. I said several times at the start of the season that those expecting us to win this league were going to be dissapointed. We have issues in the air at the back but much more significantly we're a brand new team full of young faces. We should make the playoffs and with a couple of additions next year will be competitive, regardless of the league. There will be a couple of minters like this to suck up in the meantime.
  5. Famous Three Kings will have it on but I'm trying to find somewhere better. There used to be an Aberdeen supporters pub in Earl's Court but I think it's gone. My boss is a very keen PT supporter so I'm hoping he'll have suggestions when he gets back from hols tomorrow.
  6. Niche probably but any of you good people planning on taking the derby in down in London? If I can't be at Dens it would at least be good to be among God's chosen people. Best regards
  7. Ah you see that can't be right, he had 100% signed for us the week before! Or was that a clever ruse? I've lost track as well.
  8. See we're hot again, who have we signed? /Checks thread "FFS"
  9. Presume by this you mean source of erections.... Sounds a bit much to be true tbh.
  10. We clearly need a body or two still but anyone in a stooshie over this is as daft as anyone getting a Championship winners tattoo after watching us pump Raith. If it's going to be done right it will take time.
  11. Some players need a boot and others need a cuddle. Twill be forever thus.
  12. I find the idea that we wouldn't want Stevie May bizarre to be honest.
  13. Probably a journalist for the Ranger that will then report on "speculation trending on Twitter that Cummings is training with Dundee." i could write it for him... "One fan even reached out to the player directly to demand answers. However there was no sign of the player at a live session this morning and the rumour is that (furiously tweets) St. Mirren are also interested. Blah, blah , pish, pish etc." Jason if you are signing I'm delighted btw.
  14. I think Hamilton will be our lot keeper wise and it will be fine. We need a striker far more than a keeper Have to agree with what others above have said about our chances. Those expecting us to go up this year will be disappointed in my view. The best we can hope for is to establish a stable and developing core ahead of a push next year or the one after. I'm personally completely fine with that. I think finally getting our shit together again on the playing side is a lot more important than going up first time. Doesn't happen in one window. Takes years. Still. I've been wrong before.
