  1. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    Shinnie's performances have been much more variable this season than in previous campaigns, although I'm not necessarily convinced that it's contract-related. I thought he was excellent against Hibs and Rangers, but you could be forgiven for thinking that it was a different person wearing his shirt today and against QotS - this might be because there is more emphasis on his ball-winning and his combativeness (his strengths) against the former, but more on his ability to create and unlock (not his strengths) against the latter. In all honesty, I probably underestimated how much Shinnie would miss McLean, who was not only a technically gifted midfielder but one who had more strings to his bow and, as good as Ferguson and Shinnie are capable of being individually, just offered us a different dimension in midfield to anything we have in the squad now, especially against deep, packed defences. Gleeson is the type of player you might want to bring on when you are defending a narrow lead with 20 minutes to go against top-six opposition, but I don't think he's a player you want to be turning to when you are drawing 1-1 at home with the team at the bottom of the league with a full half to play. Everything he did seemed quite safe and conservative, but it just further emphasised that we are missing a McLean 'type' in the middle of the park.
  2. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    There's no hiding from that - dismal performance and really poor result. Credit to St Mirren, but they didn't even have to do anything special to take something from the game, which is the most frustrating thing. So many bizarre decisions and brainless mistakes, typified by Cosgrove at the penalty. Mackay-Steven unfortunately looks a very pale shadow of the player he was pre-injury, although he was far from the only culprit today. That makes it just one win in our last six at Pittodrie, and that was against lower league opposition.
  3. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    That's the last we'll see of Hoban, I fear. Clearly a very serious injury - screaming and obviously in absolute agony.

    So, anti-independence voters would unite behind anti-independence candidates, regardless of other issues and concerns, simply to defeat pro-independence SNP candidates. But it's the SNP and pro-independence voters who are obsessed with issue of independence at the expense of everything else. Right, that definitely makes sense.
  5. Peep Show

    Oh yes, the Bible. And I wonder what the Bible's view is on you doing it - in the shower, and in the garden centre, and up the bum. I mean, that's all right, is it? That's in the Bible, is it? Or do you think that's maybe not in the Bible?
  6. The Bethnal Green Schoolgirls

    I think it is possible to be both a victim and an offender, and that her repatriation and potential rehabilitation would be a more potent weapon against terrorist narratives than the alternative of abandonment. I'm also aware that her unborn child didn't make her decisions, and shouldn't be needlessly condemned for them.

    Oh well, that's all ancient history now.
  8. Peep Show

    Anybody been listening to Podcast Secrets of the Pharaohs? As the name suggests, it's a podcast by two guys dedicated to discussing and analysing every Peep Show episode, usually between 60 and 90 minutes each in length. I think the hosts could do with being a bit more jovial at times, but it's not a bad listen, even if some of them are a bit on the lengthy side for discussing about 22 minutes of content. Still, I thought I'd give it a mention as some of you might want to check it out. They are currently up to S2E2, Jeremy Makes It, and release a new episode every week. Sound quality is quite poor between S1E1 and S1E5, but improves after that. Similarly, if any of you are fans of The Office (UK), you might want to give Wernham Blogg a listen if you haven't already, which is a similar idea and I have quite enjoyed.

    People like fast cars, they like females with big boobies, and they don't want the Euro. And that's all there is to it.
  10. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    What an honour for our boys to be playing against this legend of the game.
  11. Aberdeen v Queen of the South

    Considine is definitely our best centre-back in the opposition box. McKenna, for all his many other strengths, could learn a thing or two from him at attacking set-pieces.
  12. Aberdeen v Queen of the South

    I have to say, for someone apparently so lazy and finished for the past three years, McGinn doesn't half get himself heavily involved in a decent amount of Dons goals in his time on the pitch. First half was really dire stuff, and looked like we hadn't learned the lessons from Stenhousemuir. McGinn's introduction changed the game, and Cosgrove's goal for 3-1 knocked the stuffing out of QotS. In all honesty, 4-1 probably was flattering and the penalty is a poor decision, but pleasing to get through and with some goals to spare.

    If one thing keeps me going politically, it is undoubtedly the thought of P&B on the morning after a Yes vote.

    Can't stand Wilder, so that's a pleasing turnaround.
