Hold on.

Both Aberdeen and UEFA's websites have us at home next Thursday night. 

Is that right ? I thought the ties had been switched ? 

Someone better tell Derek as he thinks we're away next week given the interviews he did last night.

I think the fact Chikhura use the same stadium as Dinamo Tbilisi for European matches means it will be switched.

UEFA.com still have Gabala v Dinamo Tbilisi as happening in Azerbaijan next week - so one of them will be switched, and all the talk was it had been pretty much confirmed it would be Chikhura.

5pm UK time - hopefully Premier pick it up, as no timing clash with Sevco.

They will be given their recent scalps include Turkish and Israeli opposition - and playing technical players in hot weather can be a problem for us.

I had a feeling we'd lose a goal last night and the fact it happened so early at least dispelled any notion of hanging on for a 0-0, which would have made for an excrutiating last 20.

Cosgrove is at least there for the chances, and despite the glaring misses in both legs, still has 2 goals to his name already.

I thought the rest of the side were relatively efficient, with Ferguson and Campbell both doing very well considering the worries over the young midfield.  Is Lingman 'worth a look' ?

 

 

Reading the Heikkinen interview in the programme last week he was saying the players in Finland get paid nothing. I'm guessing by that less than £1k/week.

A wee £75k bid plus loan until January is a fair shout on a speculative basis. He has another year beyond that before being out of contract. He may well be one we keep an eye on for the next 6-18 months.

Just back from Finland today and away to Georgia on Tuesday. Uefa don't make this easy for fans traveling.

Good the game on later on at night as weather is in the mid 30s during the day. This team has beaten a few decent team so tie isn't going to be easy.
