Aberdeen Back where it all began

  1. Good luck for the new season mate. Be good to see the ugly sisters dethroned so I'm rooting for you. If there's one thing I've learned over the years tho mate it's never, ever bet on Falkirk.

    No safe bet with the bairns since Lee Miller was top goalscorer and that was not yesterday

    Just like last season our first game at home to Rangers turned into a blood bath, For them at least. Forced into starting u20 striker Klein due to a knock to Storey and Rooney not quite fit in time payed of in the 10th minute as we took the lead, Niall McGinn soon made it 2 and Diego Poyet had us 3 goals ahead right on half time. Vico & a second McGinn goal had us 5-0 up before Waghrn grabbed a consolation for the former league leaders.

    Last season unraveled over a few trips to Dens park but we just managed to leave them in the past here with a 89th minute winner and last club goal from Jonny Hayes secured the 3 points. Dundee showed enough here to suggest they will cause us problems once again as the season goes on.

    This must go down as the craziest day in the clubs history. The plot begins a few days earlier just as i was preparing to fly out on Scotland duty West Brom put in a offer for Graeme Shinnie which i rejected having already lost Shay Logan. Shinnie was not impressed and demanded a move claiming he would rather rot on the bench and see out his contract than play for me again forcing me to put him up for sale.

    This opened the flood gates and the players voted with there feet. Jonny Hayes & Vadim Demidov rejected a new contract the following day meaning they would have to move on now or let go on a free next summer. Demidov did the job he was brought in for and to get £325k back for him is good. Graeme the Snake Shinnie is off to the Championship with QPR in a deal for £1.4m. First of my heartbreaking moves was Andy Considine. Last summer he broke into the top 10 all time club appearances and would have reached 7th maybe even 6th but with all the youngsters joining the club looking for first team action its in the teams interest to move him on after 381 games. Jonny Hayes was the other player i wanted to keep. He may have just hit 30 but i had no plans to move him on and even offered him a new deal that he rejected forcing a move. £2.2m from Crystal Palace is nice but with poor squad depth i'll have to reinvest the money on first team players

    On the other end of the scale is Petar Zanex. I've never herd of him in real life or seen him in the game but his stats and price are incredible for a old man. If my u20s develop then his 2 years at the club will be perfect while they develop into first team players.

    Craig Gordon is back in the squad but with no football in over 6 months he probably wont push David Marshall out of the no1 spot. Ollie Burke's chances of forcing himself into the right wing will have to wait as he is out of both games injured. Lots of players 1 game away from a ban so we'll have to be careful and use subs in the right places to protect our players. Callum Paterson's signing means we have 3 Dons in the squad.

    Doesnt this just reek of the kind of game Scotland love to loose? Maybe were saving it till Malta but we were in a strong spot once Leigh Griffiths opened the scoring only for Sporting Lisbon striker Spalvis equalized just before the break. It was however only 2 minutes of stress as Grant Hanley immediately put us back in front before the half time oranges. Second half was quiet. Didnt plan to shut down the game but glad we scared ourselves into it and got the required result

    Its hard to think of the last time a Sell out was treated to such a grate game & result. Before kick off we were delt a blow with star player Darren Fletcher banned and we almost made an abysmal start but thankfully Slovakia's goal from the kick off was disallowed. In turn we got the first actual goal from Matt Ritchie in the 15th minute and as soon i began thinking of tactial changes to shut the door a bit Ross McCormack made it 2-0. Leigh Griffiths had the stadium bouncing with a 3rd right after the break and i considered that game over and shut up shop. Adam Nemec had other ideas and 7 minutes later it was back to 3-2 and all we could think was he we go again! but NO! this is a different Scotland, different team spirit and our fresh substitute right back Ikechi Anya burst forward and it was 4-2. Leigh Griffiths ended the game with his second and our fifth at the end.

In other words its down to Scotland and Slovenia and the latter just lost in Lithuania. Our final two games go like this


    Wk 9
    Malta vs Scotland
    Slovenia vs England


    Wk 10
    Scotland vs England

    Slovenia's trip to Wembly could see the top 2 decided going into the last game if England do us a favor.

    Excitement was in the air for the big debut fest at Pittodrie. Over 20,000 fans came out for the Ross County game and would be going home happy after Myles Storey, filling in for injured Niall McGinn got his first of the season. Chance after chance was missed before Hernani got his name on the score sheet on his debut. Not a bad way to announce yourself to your new fans.

    This was a very upsetting result. I was not expecting a win but after being ridiculed by there boss Michel and taking the lead thanks to young brother Pogba scoring a O'G it looked like we were on our way towards shutting him up. Sadly the French side ran over us in the 2nd half waltzing to the first 3 points of the group.

    This is more like it. Thought with the form and big games coming up i had to rotate players in the next two games for Roma & Hearts at the end of the month. It was a regular player, at the moment Storey who gave us the lead and Norweigan midfielder Lundermo still fighting for a place in the midfield with Sandro's arrival imminent. Poyet put the icing on the cake with 10 minutes to go and put us in the Semi Finals

    Youth came through against Dundee but this was a step to far it appears. But lets look at the positives. I got to give them a good dressing down which will inspire them to avoid the same leaky performance against Roma


    Europa League Match 2
    Aberdeen 3-1 Roma
    Aberdeen Back where it all began-6-roma.png
    So here is our best result in the save so far. Wouldnt go as far as say we dominated but we did outperform the Italian in every area of the pitch, Won the second balls, made them uncomfortable at every area. We broke down the Italian after only 15 minutes through Adam Rooney. Only a few minutes later and still suffering the shock of going behind we put them 2 behind with Hernani returning from injury for his 2nd goal in his 2nd start for Aberdeen. El Shaarawy looked to have get Roma back in the game with 2 minutes before the break but anyone who's been at Pittodrie will tell you how loud the home crowd get at moment like this. When the team needs a boost the 12th man is right behind them and it worked here as Kenny McLean made it 3-1 going into Half time. Far less exciting 2nd half. Catenaccio vs Catenaccio produced as expected a red card for Poyet but was never made to thrill not that we wanted or needed such thing and were delighted to get this massive result for the club. Extra £300k in the coffers for the win not to mention hope in the group and a new level of expectation back in the Scottish game

    Can the high of a Roma win last 8 months? It sure pushed us to this win against Hearts. Myles Storey must have seen Niall McGinn return to training and chose this week as his coming out party, Rare any of my guys score a hattrick never win a Inside forward. One of the goals came from youngster Adam Frizzell who added his first Aberdeen goal to his first Aberdeen assist and Rooney made it 5 as we head off to international duty

    We may have dropped points twice but still sit 3 points and 7 goals clear at the top of the SPL. This really puts our droped points in perspective. I should not have overlooked Hamilton up in 3rd place and should be very upset that we lost points to bottom placed St Johnstone. First match after the break however is a trip to Parkhead to see where we really stand.




    Europa League

    Everyone's tied on 3 points so not sure where we really stand just now. We'll just have to take it one game at a time. Having said that we should have a much clearer picture after our double header with CSKA.

If Aberdeen beat Roma then Scotland can beat England. And look we did!!! I even dropped all players on a final yellow card since this game was a dead rubber. Amazing stat of the game was no yellow cards over the 90 minutes. Next biggest shock was we were the better team and got the only goal a Robert Snodgrass special in the 64th minute was enough to tame all 3 lions. 5th win in a row for

    This is the result we've been waiting for. A very even game between the two top sides in the country inflicting on them there worst home result in this save, Paris SG beat them 2-0. Myles Storey kept his spot after a hattrick last time out and he broke the deadline. The game went quiet untill the 60th minute when £1.5m Brazilian signing Caiuby got sent off only 15 minutes after coming on as a sub. Celtic fought bravely but ran outof steam by the end and in the final 5 minutes Kenny McLean scored twice to secure this massive victory. Celtic wont have to wait long for revenge as we play each other next week in the Betfred cup

    We thumped them. Treated them like they were Kilmarnock to be honest. First half was gold. Criminal that there was no goal from Rooney. Second half was more even and quiet and i was just starting to rack my mind for me having a 0-0 draw in this save, For the record we drew 0-0 with Inverness of course in September last year.

Ryan jack gave us the lead after 3 minutes with Rooney making it 2-0 just before the break. Celtic came back into it in the second half but there kids just couldnt find a goal and Cameron Smith made it 3. He added a 4th and McGinn a 5th at the end to secure a momentous result.

    Im sure a certain reader will be unimpressed with this result but it was over by half time. Aaron Muirhead's O'G got us on the way. Lots more own goals going our way wonder if its our pressure were applying on teams? Adam Rooney scored a spectacular volley right on half time.

Both sides began making subs thinking about the game in 3 days time when amongst the confusion Robert Snodgrass struck the 2nd Scotland away goal of the tie and the match winning goal.

    By shock do you think Iran or Guinea will sneak a draw or win from a game? Senagal vs France 2002 comes to mind. We were playing football during lunch break at school when a guy in the house next to school shouted the score out his window and we all stopped and applauded. Poor guy probably thought it was his greatest achievement

    We've never played USA at a world cup ever in fact. The last World cup in 1998 we lost 2-1 to Brazil, Late own goal. Drew 1-1 with Norway in "the battle for 2nd" then got humiliated as usual in the 3rd game 3-0 by Morocco.

    Little bit of history. In 3 of our last 4 final group games at world cup we've shot ourselves in the foot. 1998 is above, In 1990 Dons legend Jim Leighton fumbled a shot for Brazil's only goal and in 1982 Alan Hansen & Willie Miller ran into each other to let Soviet Union save a draw

    99 Games before this and only the Roma result gave me more satisfaction. Rooney gave us the lead towards the end of the first half but it was the second half where we exploded It all began with Anthony O'Connor heading home from a corner then a Own goal from old Brazilian left back Maxwell, who im sure i signed as a teenager in CM01/02. Thats how old he is! Niall McGinn started an amazing month personally by getting the 4th. Wifred Bony got a consolation but this was the end of there European campaign

    This is heartbreaking for 3 reasons. A Draw would have put us in the last 32, 2 we saved our subs to be fresh at the end and we should have been the fitter quicker team in the last 20 minutes, 3 We had a 2 goal lead twice including going 3-1 up with 20 minutes to go. All this without mentioning that the French side scored in the 92nd minute and hold a head to head advantage so if they beat CSKA next time and we loose to Roma were out.

    This was the first of two games i simply had to play u19s due to burn out. One of the starters Alan Granger had a interesting 15 minute run out. He opened the scoring after 6 minutes, becoming Aberdeen's youngest ever scorer before making a terrible challenge less than 10 minutes later and getting a red card. We had to drastically alter our team but Niall McGinn once again showed why loosing Hayes was not the end of the world. Dundee almost fought there way back into it with 2 goals in the last 5 minutes but we held on to get a tough fought win.

    Our gap is down to 5 points but we have a game in hand over Celtic who should be more worried about Rangers and amazingly Hamilton only 3 points behind. Dundee & Hearts fill out the top 6 while St Johnstone continue to look like the worst team in the league but Falkirk are not far ahead. Mark McNulty still leads the golden boot race. Rooneys 4 goals at Partick had him up to 2nd with Griffiths

    Gutted with the St Etienne result. I never expected to be in the fight to qualify but now we are that result hurt. Its in our own hands so to speak. Not sure if we'll play 11 men behind the ball. 10 in the box but if and probably when we loose qualification is still possible is CSKA can get a result in France.

    This was my favorite game, Well not my favorite but the one i laughed at most. Rangers utterly shit the bed. A bad performance would have been enough however they did everything possible to loose this game. Striker 1 a 37th minute red card for Julien De Sart Red, Striker 2 Red card for Andy Hallidy, 3 With 10 minute to go Aiden Wilson went of injured meaning they finished with 8 players. Back to back Cup wins and we are still unbeaten in the Betfred cup

    Utter humiliation. But thanks to CSKA winning in France we have amazingly made it through to the last 32. Amazing to see that happen from this group and on the back of a 7-1 defeat. some what amazingly Rooney gave us the lead before Dzeko scored 5, made one of there 6 goals. We did put on the kids once we went 3-1 behind and CSKA were winning 2-0 and tried to attack so even at best this would have been a 4-1 defeat i think.

    I am now in the season of resting players and its about to show. It started fine With Matthias Klein setting himself up for a run of games with the opening goal after 6 minutes. St Johnstone equalized with there first effort on goal and 10 minutes later Chris Kane scored his and the teams 2nd goals from there second and final shot on target to secure a huge win in there relegation a battle.

    We had to get a result after two defeats on the bounce and we came close too but we once again shot ourselves in the foot. Rooney put us ahead but at 13 minutes when Hearts equalized it looked like this was going to be a goal fest. Not much else happened till wing back Petar Zanev got sent off and left us in the lurch and hanging to get our first point in 3 games

    A brilliant fight at Pittodire. Celtic smell blood with our team faulting. Rooney got the opening goal and only goal of the first half. Leigh Griffiths pulled the game level right after the break. Celtic didnt take there chances and a quick fire double from first McLean and then Rooney again got us across the line despite Holzauser scoring a consolation at the end.

    This is the pits! Falkirk took the lead right from kick off for the Bairns but quickly Matt Klein equalized. At this point you would have expected to go on and win well and about a hour later sub Miles Storey put us in the lead but our lazy last 10 minute defense let in another points depriving goal and just to end the year on a utter downer as Diego Poyet got sent off. Might be his last game someone outbids our low buy out fee.

    Rest of the league had 2 weeks away while we only got 10 days. Still it didnt show in the come from behind win against Partick who took the lead through Stefan Scougall once of Livingstone. Kenny McLean and Hernani goals had turned the match on its head by halftime. Lundemo and Vico had the game won as the hour passed while Partick got another back from the penalty spot

    Our pals from Govan not quite recovered from the cup final. Callum Patterson from right back gave us the lead with the only first half goal. Rangers were not over ran here and for once it was our energy and fitness in the final 15 minutes that forced a own goal from Wes Fotheringham and young striker Matthius Klien, who i rejected a £6m bid from Man City for. If there bidding that much for him as a sub then there is no way i'l lever sell him. Stewart Milne may have other idea's

    This was ugly All was going well with Diego Poyet putting us ahead before half time. Nothing worth reporting went down till the 85th minute when Callum Patterson decided it would be a great idea to give away a penalty which Stewart Murdoch put away, No Mystery there Alibi fans. Things got worse as on loan West Ham forward Luka Belic put Hibs ahead with 1 minute to go. At times of pearl your captain is needed and Ryan Jack stepped up deep deep into stoppage time to rescue a point. Only saving grace was Celtic dropping points tonight too.

    After spending the last few weeks flirting with defeat today was the day it actually went down. A worth draw looked to be on the cards after first half goals from Jai Quitongo & Kenny McLean. villain of the month was Callum Patterson and he earned his cape and evil giggle by getting sent off with 13 minutes to go. Plenty time for The son of legendary Jose to score a 2nd and give us our first defeat of the month.

    Still very little in it at the top. If Celtic win there game in hand there will be four points between the top 3. Hearts are probably too far behind but are the form team of the last month as Craig Levine wins manager of the month t end his first year in charge. Dundee and Hamilton hold a comfortable gap to the top 6 places with only Hibs in a strong enough state to chase them down. St Johnstone under Ray McKinnon look even more likely to be automatically relegated but with nothing between 9th and 11th its still all to play for.

    Aberdeen Transfers

    2 youths and 2 loans to make up for the loss of Myles Storey. I tried to add quite a few players from across Europe but there was always a stumbling block usually wages.

    Out
    I've made a brave and bold move to accept a bid for Myles Storey. He was having a great season with 10 goals from 33 appearances but over £2m for a player that was in and out of the team and had 18 months left on his contract was always going to be accepted due to out money ball for youth mentality.

    A terrible window for Celtic who loose Scott Sinclair and Nir Bitton without replacing either player. Think i Overpaid for Fernando Rey but like all our youth they have potential to be better than any current player. Ali Msakni may be ready for the No1 job too soon for Jordan Archer's liking. Motherwell championship cheat mode Louis Moult never really worked out so £450k for a player who scored 1 goal all season was good work.

    The now familiar packed Pittodrie used to only happen for nights like this. Despite our good form against bigger teams this gets real and i had to use under 20 players Grangier and Frizzell. We got off to a great start with Rooney getting the only goal of the game 13 minute in. We went on to dominate the game but using experienced players to support youth players perhaps took away our chances of winning by a bigger margin. Delighted with the home clean sheet.

    So it all comes down to the final day at the top and for the play off spot.


    For the Top 3
    Celtic just need to win at Hearts by a winning margin no less than 6 goals less than Rangers to secure the title
    Rangers must better Celtic's result
    Aberdeen need Celtic and Rangers to not win and we must beat Dundee at Pittodrie


    Hearts, Dundee and Hamilton need a result themselves. Split by 2 points and only two of them will be in the Europa League qualifiers.


    At the bottom
    St Johnstone are down. While Ross County need a better result than Inverness CT to get out of a play off tie with Kilmarnock, St Mirren or Motherwell.




    Raith beat Motherwell to the title on goals scored, Dundee United were almost in the relegation play off down in 8th!

    Jeez! I never noticed that there turnover had been so big in less than 2 years. I thought we wer bad!

    Thanks Celtic. We made the best of a bad situation and sneak into a champions league spot. That was the target for this season but i had no plans to finish behind Rangers who i think surprised us all. Celtic's side never recovered from selling all there players and the question is will Rodgers be around to work on rebuilding the squad for next season.



    While at the other end ICT finish 11th

  34. Sorry I'm celebrating the Rangers win lol, Told you helicopter Sunday usually ends up in direction of Govan lol, You must be aiming to win the league next season and hopefully grab a group stage spot which will be tricky.

  35. Great european run but looks like it cost you the title. Very close though and i'm sure after the euro run, with your newly improved reputation you can sign one or two new players of higher quality and push on next season and win the league

  36. enjoying following this. agree with neavie about the benefit of the euro run vs how it cost you in the league. a few years back I would always do a hibs save and I found that sacrificing the league for the sake of a good Europa league run normally paid dividends in the long run thanks to the money!

    Your so close to getting blocked haha. Rangers winning the title is the absolute pits! Disaster for us up north.

    Agree with Neavie & Battman. I think it was over £2.5m in prize money alone never mind the 3 games we sold out Pittodrie for. Early days of the transfer window suggests that if better players are interesting there asking for money thats about double of what we can afford

    Big job for Austin up top as they look to copy Rangers everyone behind the ball tactic. Still cant be mad at any team playing CM legend Mark Kerr. Only player missing from there strongest 11 is Bob McHugh. In the build up to this gme we lost a 3rd starting defender as Callum Paterson gives our world cup squad a scare joining O'Conner and Zanev by missing the final game of the year.

    Scotland

    Rangers defense helped turn there mediocre 1st season to history as they win there first title in 7 seasons. Celtic can consider 3 a disaster as was there last month of the season. They were worse than us and thats saying something. After a stunning start to the season where we were quickly 8 points clear failing to win the League is very disappointing. The end of season form proves my thought that the Europa League played havoc and without that run we'd have won the league but i would not trade that first Europa run for the world, just need a stronger team to try do it again next season. We got 75 points, 2 more than last year and lost 9 games again so no progression at all really. Hearts & Dundee secure the Europa League spots. Inverness finished 11th after a season long battle while St Johnstone were as bad as they looked.


    Championship winner Raith join the top flight next season. Livingston & Morton swap with Alloa & Ayr in League 1, Cowdenbeath & Stirling go up and replace Queens Park & Albion Rovers go down to League 2. Hawick RA lost there relegation play off to highland league side Brora so we have another team from the north in the leagues.

    Real Madrid just sneaked by defending champions Atletico Madrid to win La Liga. Barcelona were in the fight this year just behind. A further 20 points back Valencia got 4th spot 1 point ahead of Villareal
    Arsenal won the league with 90 points comfortably clear of the Manchester teams. Chelsea beat Tottenham to 4th by a point and Leicester are in Europe once again finishing 7th. Crystal Palace & Middlesbrough and last years Championship winners Derby go down. Newcastle finish in the top 10.
    Bayern by a miles once again. Dortmund, Leverkusen & Schalke in the champions league
    Wow a sudden change of the guard in Italy. Roma & Napoli finish ahead of Juventus in the title race. Juve finished 2 goals clear of Inter to sneak into next years Champions League. Wonder where we would finish in this league???

    Emir Dilaver outplayed big money replacement Callum Paterson but neither wing back was as good as the player they replaced sadly. Money was the winner over club success. Shinnie not so much but i never appreciated Shay Logan for behind as good in FM as he was. McGinn and Rooney reach important stages of there careers at Pittodrie this summer. McGinn enters his last year of his contract at 30 years old i will accept any decent offers if they come early in the window and if his contract demands are too much he could end up on the transfer list. Rooneys situation is not as desperate. He has another year on his contract but again i'd listen to the right offers. Mathoho brought the composure i expected at the back. We just need a long term partner. Might come from the u20's but time will tell. If Hernani will be a star if he can learn how to stay fit.

    I would have just reloaded it till the top 3 finished the same way. Everything else is not majorly important in the long run. Killie fans have a right to be angry but you have to draw a line somewhere.



    Celtic finished the season loosing 2-1 to Rangers, 5-1 to us and a draw at Hearts. Not to mention the thrashing we gave the in the cup. They've just been abysmal in the transfer windows.

    After our pre crash game i even considered playing back up players but with match fitness a issue i went four our best team. Our best was not enough in the first half as it was coming to a close the Africans took the lead through Ramadan Sobhi gave them a shock first half lead. WE had a far more attacking look in the second half that gave more chances to both teams but it was man of the match to be Chris Berra who headed home the equalizing goal before Matt Ritchie gave us a lead we were never to loose. We did however loose big game player Robert Snodgrass for the rest of the tournament with a hamstring injury

    This must be a shout for game of the tournament. It all began in the 3rd minute with Ross McCormacks push for the golden boot began and he doubled his total just after the half hour. The American's couldnt keep up with us. The very American sounding Aron Johannsson pulled one back before Emerson Hyndman who played against us for St Etienne last year equalized in first half stoppage time. Ross McCormack chose the 52nd minute to become the first player not called Steven Fletcher to score a hat-trick since 1969 With the game back and forth our normal lead forward Leigh Griffiths got his first of the competition to make the game safe before captain Michael Bradley made the last 5 minutes nervous.


    Two stoppage time goals for Belgium secured both of our places in the last 16 where we will play either Spain or Brazil. Pick your poison!

With all that in mind the performance against one of the best teams in the world is not much of a shock. Crystal Palace's Benteke scored the only goal of the game.

    Dont let the stats fool you. Spain whooped us in the first half and at 2-0 up they had kept us to 1 shot off target. They clearly relaxed in a second half we bossed but could not score. It seemed every 10 minutes De Gea was turning a Matt Ritchie effort over the bar. So the dream is over but getting this far is beyond what i and the nation expected. It was a tough road through a qualification group that was far from a convincing win in the play-off against a stronger Poland team to even make it to Russia.


    Looking at 2020 9 players will be over 30 and how many will be in shape to play in 2 years time?




    Next up is the First ever European International league. For those like me who know nothing about this it is basically aimed at removing pointless friendlys. Here's how the next 2 years will work out roughly

    As you see it is linked to Euro 2020 qualification


    I'll try keep this short
    Euro 2020 qualifying will have 10 groups, 5 groups with 5 teams and 5 with 6 teams with the Nations league final 4 teams guaranteed to be in the groups of 5. 2 qualify from each group.


    Now this is the explanation for the playoff spots. Basically it looks like we'll play it by ear and worry about it if we dont finish top 2.


    "Each Nations League division will be allocated one of the four remaining UEFA Euro 2020 places. Four teams from each division which have not already qualified for the Euro finals will compete in the play-offs for each division, to be played in March 2020. The play-off berths will be first allocated to each pool winner, and if any of the pool winners have already qualified for the Euro finals, then to the next best ranked team of the division, etc. If in any division, there are fewer than four teams which have not already qualified for the Euro finals, the play-off berths will be allocated to the next best ranked team of the following division, etc.
    The play-offs will consist of two "one-off" semi-finals (best-ranked team vs. fourth best-ranked team and second best-ranked team vs. third best-ranked team, played at home of higher-ranked teams) and one "one-off" final between the two semi-finals winners (venue drawn in advance). The four division winners will join the 20 teams which have already qualified for the Euro finals. This means at least one team from each Nations League division will qualify for the Euro finals"

  49. Pre Season 2018/19


    Last summer didnt go to plan then this summer so this year i spent much more time bidding for players and offering contracts than risking missing out on players. 8 Youth players are signed up. Some hard cash went to Motherwell for there best youth prospect and another Aussie star from the FFA center of excellence. Looks like we'll be playing a lot of youth players next term having reviewed the squad Garnager at 16 is almost as good as my other left backs and Klein, keeper Ali Msakni, Ross McCailey and Callum Dickinson have been receiving multiple bids off big English & European teams so they will get more playing time.

But this is about the future. A player who once commanded £4.3m. At 27 its time to man up and put in a shift for us. With no clear u20 player in the position he'll get his chances.

    Linked with Rangers in the real world the Spanish player has never put together a great season despite his stats and with the depth we have in attacking midfield he wont get away with poor performances at Pittodrie. This move was done as Kenny McLean was getting offers from down south and i was set to loose him till he rejected Wolves twice.


    7 Youth players join. Martin Neil from Motherwell cost £500k, Juan Prieto was almost £50k the rest were free.

    Out
    Huge Profit again but its pretty much all on Diego Poyet moving to Werder Bremen for his £5m buy out clause and former Hearts wing back Callum Paterson. Had no desire to sell but with more than double my money back in one season i couldnt say no. The rest was center midfielder Fede Vico. He wanted over £10k a week and that would be tough to justify for a starting player. £2m back from a free signing is good work for 2 years work. Huddersfield is his new home. Squad players Danny Rogers, Bogdan Mitrea, Danny Rodgers, Franck Ross, Robbie Mutch and Daniel Harvie move on for around £500k and we release 12 players on a free. I tried to sell Sandro but no cash offers came in and he left on a free while another old player Petar Zanev youth players Scott Wright (Killie) and Alen Brtan (Partick) are loaned on on the promise of first team football.

    Looks of regression on Rooney & McGinn now in the 30's and down to 3* we'll be looking to get a fee out of them in the next 12 months and push through there replacements.

    Far more depth than before. Can see at least 3 of these players breaking into the first team before long.

    Only certain change right away is Thomasson coming in for the departed Poyet. Jullien, Jota, De Preville & Klein will all be getting there chances this season while Granger is going to get his chances as will Dickson & Ali Msakrni and probably others.

    A tough and even first half with only a Matthias Klein goal splitting the teams. Aberdeen came alive in the 2nd half with Klein's 2nd and a late goal from Adam Frizzell should have the tie to bed before the 2nd leg

    Give the Belgians credit as they came out swinging and took the lead on the night through Gedoz. The game defying goal came in first half stoppage time through Lundemo before Jota seemed to settle the tie just before the hour. Brugge were not done though former Middlesborogh striker Jelle Vossen got them back in it again but soon after Frizzell and a o'g settle the tie

    Adam Rooney must be wondering how he's going to get his place in the team back with Klein in this kind of form

    Run out for the back up players. Alex Ronningen got his first Aberdeen goal and Cammy Smith reminds me why he needs to stay involved in the squad

    Not a disaster of a result. 16 year old wing back Alan Granger's goal gives us a shot in the 2nd leg and with our record at Pittodrie i'd rule out nothing yet. Actually i take that back im raging with this result. We battered Schalke before they scored there 2nd goal

    Where did this come from. Very worrying result that smells of the past 2 seasons all over again

    This was a poor performance from us that cost us our first chance of being in a champions group.

    Nobodys perfect and nobody's lost all 3. I think European matches are effecting us and the old firm.

    We've moved up to a 3rd seed team. That will give us a easy group right...... Ok so no Roma this time but 4 solid European teams that are all capable of beating us and no walk over games.

    Yet more first team stars are on there way from Pittodrie Hernani joined with injury issues and only played 25 of 50 games due to injurys so despite being a obvious starter i was not turning away a huge profit after one season. Jordan Archer was settle in my Scotland squad but was clinging onto the No1 jersey at Pittodrie with Ali Msakni at least as good as Archer just lacking the experience i would like. So premature or not he'll be getting the gloves as we bring in Mariano Barbosa on loan as a back up and nothing more.


    Expect some free players to join the squad in the near future as the players rejecting me get desperate for work.
