  1. If we had the power to re-write history , would any Dons fan want to swap the outcomes of the two 11th of May games ? Winning the title at Ibrox could probably never be topped on the domestic front. But , for me , the European trophy trumps the Premier League title.....even clinching it in a decider at Ibrox.
  2. A player who lives out of a campervan alternating between the respective carparks at Pittodrie and Cormack Park , depending on which is the next day's workplace. And his mother must have been artificially inseminated with the defrosted sperm of Joseph Montgomery Harper, Steve Archibald , Mark McGhee , Eric Black , Eoin Jess, Hans Gillhaus , Duncan Shearer and Adam Rooney.
  3. Could be an instinctive striker getting a shot off quicker than most other players would be capable of. Might be deflected on the way in , but even the keeper might have saved it , if there wasn't a deflection it could still be said to be a good finish/good striker's goal. Just not as aesthetically pleasing as an undeflected finish.
  4. Cosgrove useless......blah blah.....Sale of Goods Act....blah blah.... not fit for purpose....blah blah.... Birmingham kept the receipt
  5. If he’s a Kenny McLean type , then that’s exactly the sort of player we’ve needed since McLean left. More than any other position.
  6. Still one of the finest footballers I ever saw play. Graceful almost balletic. And about as much use in a 50/50 challenge as your average ballerina
  7. Scott Severin. I didn’t hate him before he came to us , as to be honest I’d hardly been aware of him.....but within a few games for us I was already rating him very highly. And , to me , it simply demonstrated just how far we’d fallen below Hearts in the pecking order in that he just about instantly became our best player but had only been a bit-part/fringe player for them.
  8. You don’t remember correctly , if you’re meaning goals for the Dons. He scored only one with his head which was a late winner at Brockville. And his only other goal was a shot from the edge of the box at Ibrox.
  9. It’s quite simple really. Hibs take no more than one point from their next 3 games. Not entirely unrealistic seeing as they’ve already lost to the Hvns , Livvy and the Saints this season. Meanwhile , we win our next two , including the game against Celtic which we win with own goals by the strangely lethargic Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths. We then go into the second last game against Hibs at least point ahead of them and beat them 1- nil with a controversial penalty to clinch third place. Ref Willie Collum reminds himself of the cliche about decisions evening themselves out over the course of a season and duly awards us a penalty during the warm-up when Niall McGinn stubs his toe on Martin Boyle who is merely practising his diving routine. Boyle gets a straight red for his part in the incident. We then go to Ibrox on the last day with no pressure and give the Hvns their first league defeat , winning 3- nil with goals from Paul Wright , Oooh- Aahh Van der Ark and a Jim Bett free kick from 35 yards.
  10. Can’t argue with that. I think they need to recognise the strengths and weaknesses of the various pundits. Willie Miller , for instance is , in my opinion , decent as a co-commentator but absolutely hopeless on OAM. Sometimes when I’m at Pittodrie , I’ll also listen to OAM and on countless occasions there’s been some action that Willie just doesn’t bother mentioning. I know they seem to come in for a lot of flak, but I actually think Allan Preston and Billy Dodds are both pretty good on OAM. For the most part they’ll only pipe up about the game they’re covering when there’s an appropriate incident. And when there’s a goal they don’t waffle on before telling the listener which team have scored. The female who does the games at Inverness and Dingwall is possibly even worse than Chick Young as far as getting round to stating which team has just scored and what the score is now. Heather Dewar usually takes so long telling us about the tieam lineups that almost inevitably she’ll be interrupted by someone reporting on one of the other games.....(not Willie Miller) Pat Bonner doesn’t have any strengths
  11. Debatable. The more games we go with our players performing poorly and the opponents being fairly comfortable against us , the more I’m thinking McInnes was actually a miracle worker getting this group to fourth place in the league.
  12. Adams never looked like scoring. The one time Fraser put in a decent cross , Adams made no real effort to get on the end of it
  13. Several Scotland players were decidedly average as footballers tonight
  14. Well, something made them change their mind. Maybe the ref told them he didn’t fancy the long trek to Perth from whichever hovel in Strathclyde/Lanarkshire/ Renfrewshire/ Ayrshire * he came from. But it seemed an awful co-incidence that the venue was changed after St Mirren made it clear they weren’t happy with Muirton. * delete as appropriate
  15. An example of the Dons being shafted by the Central Belt Football Establishment. Shortly after the draw for that semi was made , Muirton Park was announced as the venue. An eminently sensible and obvious choice , being pretty much equidistant to Paisley and Aberdeen. A wee bit closer to Paisley , actually. But St Mirren complained , bleating how unfair it was that their fans had to travel so far for one of their rare appearances in a semi. So,of course , the SFA duly obliged by changing the venue to Parkhead ....about 10 miles from Paisley and about 140 miles from Aberdeen.
