A manager setting up in a good way and calling it luck just because they adapted to circumstances is poor form. There was plenty of other things to criticise Derek for and same goes for Jim. 

Calm down. Derek got forced in to a formation change that worked wonders. Same for Jim today.

Revised my score to 0-2, unless Killie go down to 10 men, in which case 0-1.

Glad to have got that spectacularly wrong. And against 11 men! :thumsup2

Killie were terrible. Shocked by how poor they were. Taylor was particularly poor.

Can't disagree with this and yet Taylor has scored 3 times as many goals as all of our strikers combined in 8 matches.

We really are dug meat.

No, was telling you to calm down because your post was patronising.

I just said I thought it was poor form and explained why. Not sure why you took it that way but up to you I suppose.

Matty Kennedy in centre midfield worked out surprisingly well. Coulson and McCrorie were also very good. Kilmarnock continually gave away possession of the ball so cheaply.

That was much, much better than I was fearing. If it had ended up as five or six, I don't think Kilmarnock could have had too many complaints - we were miles ahead and completely controlled the game in the second half. 

It helped that Kilmarnock had absolutely nothing about them from open play and, to be honest, looked like a Championship team. But you can only beat what is put in front of you. 

I was critical of Ramadani after Hibs, but he was imperious today. Dominated the midfield basically on his own, always aware of his surroundings and made great decisions with the ball at his feet. Watkins was good foil for Miovski, so credit to Goodwin for throwing him in. Besuijen, Kennedy and Hayes all had very effective games. Coulson was also outstanding - the third goal might have been scored by Miovski, but it was all about his determination and ingenuity. Pleased for Stewart to get his goal, too - he has been a bit up and down since joining, but I do think a successful Aberdeen team in this league will benefit from having a centre-back like him.

Some of our movement off the ball was especially pleasing to watch - Kilmarnock made it easy for our better players to shine at times, but it is hopefully a sign that we are beginning to come together more as a team.

If anyone finishes below that Kilmarnock team, they’re getting relegated.

Worst team we’ve played in the league by a distance.

Dons played well too though. 

United will have their chance to take that mantle next week.

Went along to this as trains to Elgin weren't running. Aberdeen were decent enough but jesus Killie looked really poor. Can't really think of any positives for them. Coulson looks a player and Duk had the defence on toast when he came on.

Yes, Killie were poor but I thought we played really well. Pleasantly surprised. 

I like Coulson but I really can't see us keeping him.

 

And f**k knows how Hayes managed to avoid a yellow for his retribution 'tackle'.

You never know, we lost 4-1 at Pittodrie earlier this season and then won 5 out of the next 6, killie could do the same.
