Aberdeen Back where it all began

    Good start in Europe, Awful result against Celtic, Still unbeaten in the Betfred cup

    The first game of your youth takeover and its a very positive start. Two second half goals from Nick De Preville was enough to see off Dundee who brought over 2,000 fans up the road with them in a very impressive performance.


    Aberdeen 2-0 Hearts

    De Preville kept up his scoring run with the first goal in what was our 5th game in a row that was on the TV. Adam Frizell made sure of the points before the break as our minds moved to European adventures.

    A sad night for the Portugese team trying to get back to there glory days of the 2000's. This would not be the day as a Ryan Jack double in 3 minutes before De Preville kept up his habit of scoring and scoring often. It went quiet from then on as Braga probably began thinking about getting home an we moved onto the Celtic game but not before defender Christopher Jullien got his first Aberdeen goal.

    What happened here? I hope this is not going to be a vicious cycle of Aberdeen and Celtic trashing each other in alternate years. The match was pretty close as a contest till we had to go attacking in the final half hour where Ayoub & Scott Brown made this look even worse than it was.

    We did not have long to dwell on the Celtic pumping and nor did we waste any time doing so. Lundemo and Klein had the match in control as early as the 17th minute but the joy was not to last as Klien broke his arm and is set to miss the next two months

    September & October Fixtures


    I forgot to update this last month so your getting two for one


    Squad
    Ross McCormack is gone. Another long term injury will be the end of him. Ryan Fraser will challenge Robert Snodgrass for the starting spot on the left, Liam Cooper takes over from Berra at CB and having never called up Naismith in my first two years he looks set to start in McCormacks place

    Not often you see such a demolition in a home international. Leigh Griffiths picked up where he left off with the first goal as Snodgrass set bout keeping his place in the side while Steven Naismith trying to keep his place in the squad scored his first goal in over 2 years for Scotland. 4 goals clear at halftime. Lafferty pulled one back but was far too little far too late and Naismith grabbed a 2nd in the second half


    European League Div C Match 2
    Scotland 3-0 Lithuania

    This would be to decide the group. Or so you would think. Even with Griffiths injured his back up Johnny Russell scored a hat-trick in first 35 minutes. Snoodgrass & Naismith added one each and the final 40 minutes was a exercise in saving energy.


    European League Div C Match 4

    This was by some distance our toughest game so far and that was all sorted by half time. Craig Cathcart gave the Irish a shock lead in the 9th minute. We were not taking this lying down and Jordan Rhodes equalized and just after half hour Callum Paterson now of Newcastle scored his first Scotland goal. Naismith scored either side of half time to make the score look a bit more normal

    All hail the benched Adam Rooney as he hit the back of the net 3 times in the second half. With Klien injured Rooney did start here and did enough to hinder Klein's immediate return to the team once fit.

    Falkirk gave us all we could handle and almost some more after John Baird gave them a shock lead. Kenny McLean pulled us level quite quickly but the bairns did not fold and it was another hour of attacking and breaking them down before Adrien Thomasson scored the winner with 10 minutes to go.


    Rangers 2-1 Aberdeen

    What a mess of a performance we put on. Lewis Grabban put the champions in the lead and we never looked threatening until Ryan Jack got physically threatening and got a red card 3 match ban for his troubles. Give us our due's as Adam Rooney pulled us level not long after but from then on Rangers looked the more dangerous and Grabban got a second with 15 minutes to go and ensure a second miserable trip to play the Old Firm in a row.


    Europa League Match 3

    Is this Rooney making a run on the golden boot? Very little happend in the first half. No goals and few chances till Rooney gave us the lead but less than 10 minutes later Bilbao were level through Aketxe. But with the top of the table on the line we kept fighting and it was Adam Rooney who's 2nd of the night and 5th in the last 2 Europa games set us up for a famous win to go with our stunning 3/3 start

    Our starting players were knackered. It was suggested i gave 4 players time off to recover so i gave almost the whole team the day off which may have had a lot to do with only 6,371 fans showing up to Hampden for this Semi Final. The only goal of the game came from Marius Lundemo fresh from his first Norway cap to put us into our 3rd final in as many season

    Celtic drop some points and the gap is now down to 4 points at the top with the rest of the top 6 not far off if either of us go into a dodgy run. In fact the league has yet to really settle down apart from the top 2 and Ross County at the bottom 4 points adrift

    Same here I find when away at e.g Motherwell going on the counter helped but at other times it just puts even more pressure on what is probably an average Aberdeen defence given its attack mindedness with it usually containing Shinne, Taylor, Considine & Logan lol

    Bottom of the table Ross County shouldnt have been a big obstacle, History would say otherwise with our record against the highland teams. A strong team was on show and our 3 lead forwards Jota, De Preville and Klein grabbing a goal each.

    A huge game in Portugal with qualification on the line. We started nervous and gave up the first goal right before half time. Behind at half time i used a rare shouting technique to try and get the team going. At this time we needed our stars to come forth and make a impact and Jota pulled us level. With 10 minutes to go youngster off the bench Adam Frizzell looked to have scored his most important goal for Aberdeen so far until we went all out defense and gave away a penalty which Pedro Santos knocked home to just keep Braga in the Europa League just!

    Dundee made a strong start and took the lead with James Vincent. This began our come back and it started only 3 minutes later with Matthias Klein tie the game. Amazingly despite both teams attacking proneness there was no more goals till the last 20 minutes when Klein's 2nd goal put the boots in to a tired Dundee team with old man McGinn scoring the 3rd before Ryan Jack in stoppage time with an assist from the cross bar made it four!

    Well we seem to loose a game at Dens park every year so why not get it out of the way now. Defeat was the last thing on my mind When Klein opened the scoring on the half hour but Etxbeguren's equalizer right on the break changed everything and when Ryan Hardie ended his goal drought we were beat in the league for 4th time this year.

    This was already must win after getting pumped by them early in the season. We made a quick start with De Preville giving us the lead after only 3 minutes. Our second from a corner was nodded in by Eric Mathoho. The second was a que for Celtic to implode Mikael Lustig was sent off before the break and right after the half time oranges Matthias Klein scored the 3rd and that was that. Moussa Dembele got himself sent off before the end to rule himself out of a few games to help our cause no ends.

Dundee lead the race for 4th but to early to pick winners in that race with 10 points reaching back to 10th. After that Hamilton and lost at the bottom already is Ross County 8 points from a play off spot.

    These games are automatic 6 pointers these days. Youngster Callum Dickson opened the scoring early in the second half. There was a keeper making his debut for us. On loan Mariano Barbosa sure found a way to make an impact by scoring the own goal that brought Rangers back into the game with 15 minutes to go. My Aberdeen team then went all out attack. we couldnt afford to loose more points to the Old Firm and thankfully with time running out captain Lee Wallace returned the own goal from 10 minutes earlier and give us a huge 3 points considering how the rest of the month went.

    Blink and you'll miss it. 3 Deals were wreaked by work permits not being accepted costing me a new right back. I sold 3 back up players, 2 from the very start and bought a Serbian u20 player who went out on loan immediately

    Deal was agreed a long time ago. Too good to sit on the bench or u19 team he'll go out and play first team action




    Out
    Sadly it was time to move on from the team of 2016. I was thinking of moving on Anthony O'Conner and Fulham came in with a late christmas present of a £2.3m offer. That was accepted and laughed over. Decent player for us but no way was he worth over £2m. Also leaving was Niall McGinn. Lost his starting place in the summer to De Preville and with his 31st birthday coming up it was time to move him on after 246 games and 79 goals. One more player left back up u20 right winger Ian O'Brien never broke through in his 2 seasons at Pittodrie only playing 1 game and if your not starting for the u20s then what future have you got?


    Now only remaining players are Adam Rooney, Cammy Smith, Ryan Jack, Scott McKenna & Kenny McLean

    We locked Celtic down. Could have and should have won it, god knows we had the chances but since we hold the lead this result suits us more than them.

    What a match and a come back that would have made Dundee proud. Former Don Ash Taylor led Hearts to a 2 goal lead but the former Dons boss maybe wrote off the current back up team too soon. Kenny Mclean and Ross Macauley got 2 goals in a minute to have us level for the break with McLean scoring the winner in the final 10 minutes. Might look at a stronger side for the latter stages.

    Another day another annoying defeat. A bit insulted to have let in 4 goals after being level at half time Valencia struck early in the second half to go 2-1 ahead. After that we had by far the most chances. Frizzell especially guilty of missing chances and Vela twice struck us on the break to effectively end our knock out run before it ever started

    Just when it looked like the Europa campaign was going to cost us more points a thrilling stoppage time exchange saw us loose and gain 2 extra points while Rangers were beating Celtic. Klein had us in front from the 34th minute till the last when Sam Nicholson looked like he had saved a point for Hearts but like in the cup Kenny McLean was on hand to break hearts hearts.

Partick make a stab at at top 6 spot with Hibs trying to hold of the chasing pack. Hard to see either Ross County or Hamilton getting out of there current situations.

    Injurys caught up with us and we stagger into the international break with whats left of our squad. One player coming back was Jota who joined the strikers Klein of course and Ronningen on the score sheet. Hamilton have shown sparkles of life and with Levein they have a shot of getting out of the play off spot.

    Celtic power through March like ourselves with 3 wins. Rangers draw 2 and loose 1 and are out of the title race and should be looking at Europa League football next year.Dundee & Partick have long since secured a top 6 place while Hibs will need to match Hearts to guarantee the final spot as a Hearts win will see them jump a Hibs draw on goal difference. Ross County 11 points behind, 14 points all year will be down soon. Hamilton have at least a chance of catching up with Raith and Inverness CT

    The Polish make an abysmal start to the group loosing to Iceland and things did not get better' Leigh Griffiths got the opening goal early on but it was not long before Millik had Poland level and heading towards half time we had a fight on our hands. With that Robert Snodgrass put us ahead right before half time and Griffiths struck a penalty with 20 minutes to go to secure a winning start.

    Hampden had been good to us in the last 18 months and we manage to beat a self abusing Celtic to reach our 4th domestic final in a row. The match was always going to be a battle with the league possibly on the line at Pittodrie in 4 days time. Scott Brown did the most Scott Brown of things and got sent off after 39 minutes handing us the game. De Preville had already dragged Sanko to shreds before opening the scoring right on half time. the second half onslaught never materialised but with 10 minutes to go Jota did what Griffiths did not and scored a penalty to give us a return trip to Hampden to defend our trophy on the 1st of June

    Gap is 5 points, basically 6 with our goal difference advantage.That could all change at the start of May when we play Celtic. Rangers are more threatened by Dundee in 4th than worrying us at the top but are not quite out of things yet. Hearts did sneak past Hibs into the top 6 and Hamilton close on Raith who were once on the verge of top 6 are now struggling to keep a resurgent Hamilton and the play offs at arms length.

    If ever there was a banker here it was! 6 minutes in and we were a goal up through Frizzell and you would expect nothing else but a comfortable win. However as every Dons story seems to go 2 minutes late David Amoo scored the final goal of the day as we slumped to our 3rd home game in a row without a win. At the same time Celtic were mounting an amazing comeback against Dundee to tie us at the top.

    Here we go this is the game we have got to turn it around and in the first half the guys did everything possible to ensure we failed again. Ryan Jack getting sent of after 18 minutes was just what we needed. he could have asked to get the rest of the season off rather than costing us this match. Then my least favorite reliable player Emir Dilaver scalded me for not selling him as he and i wished in January scored a o'g to put Dundee ahead. Would we have come back? we'll never know but i messed around with tactics too much and never looked like scoring so Andrew Shinnie's 88th minute goal was insult to the injury my team has put on me

    The dominant performance that will happen one week and the next we'll be abysmal. Thankfully this week we were dominant. Jota broke the deadlock and with Klein injured Alex Ronningen stepped up to double our lead. The second half never turned into much but Ryan Christie ended a poor first season with the final goal of our treble season.

    Darren Fletcher wins his 100th cap joining King Kenny Dalglish as the only two players over 100. If all goes to plan his 103 and record breaking appearance will be against England at Hampden in Spetember. But back to the game. The first half was tough as you would expect but Iceland were a different team in the 2nd half and we rolled over them to win with ease.
