Aberdeen Back where it all began

  1. Decent start domestically not so great in europe bud.
    Do you use OI like me (close down strikers, weak foot wide/wing backs) or juat leave to the assistant ?

    Iam playing a deep defensive line, short passing and into space , sometimes closing down, higher tempo and with low crossing, My players are praising the playing style considering its Scotland lol.

    The writing part of the story takes so long. Every year i start with great ambitions but quickly revert back to shorter match reports and less updates just because it takes so long

    I usually try and base it around a 4-2-3-1, never used to have a AMC till i seen the success Klippy was having with so i'll almost always have that tactic as a start but then as you say it has to be played with to counter what the opposition will do. Not done as much reading on the site this year but i've not seen the word plug and play mentioned.

    We sign Brazilian wing back Mario Landi on a free , Always pays to go through the Brazilian and Argentine released players to find some gem's. Sadly i miss out on many of these players due to work permit and now have this problem with European's However we overcame this to pick up Zoran Rakic from Partizan


    Out
    A Club legend Adam Rooney was moved on after failing to make a appearance this season and hardly any last year. Still he played a huge roll in the early days and we wont forget. The other was set to play a huge roll. Vojtech Franc was slowly starting to get more appearances but became the first player to demand Champions League success which is obviously not happening any time soon so rather than keeping a back up player on a false promise Livepool's £12m will make up for the European money were missing out on.

They did replace them with Inverness's best 2 players Lewis Vaughan and Liam Polworth as well as John Souttar and Rangers back up Ali Crawford. The other Major transfer out of the SPL was Jai Quitongo after spending almost 2 years on the transfer list he finally got his big move. Celtic beef up there squad while selling off a few back up players.

    We seen one of the most boring first 90 minutes in this or any save. Both sides had chances but it felt more like a warm up than a cup final. Extra time belonged to Aberdeen however Klein scored two more goals to add to his record total and a 3rd Borja Garcia goal secured the treble treble and second unbeaten Scottish season

  33. End of Season 2020/21


    Scotland


    Last season i said our record of 32 wins would be nearly impossible to match. Well so much for that. Still not hit Celtic record points haul so that plus Hearts 132 goals in one season, our best is 125 and finally Celtic's 25 wins in a a row are the three records we will have our sights on for next season while keeping our amazing unbeaten run going. Were now at 78 SPL matches and 97 games overall in all Scottish football competitions without defeat. The 78 league run is the second best in European history behind Steaua Bucuresti's 106 game unbeaten run from 1986-1989 although we dont have a commie government controlling our players. Paul Hartley can consider his first full season at Celtic a success as he matched Brendon Rodgers best season total points with a weaker squad. Rangers, Falkirk and Hibs had there private battle over the Europa League places. Hearts were the final team in the top 6 and had a great end of a season. Dundee were not good enough for the top 6 but too good for bottom 6. Partick were also stuck in no mans land but tied with Raith who finished the season on fire pulling well clear of the other bottom sides. Inverness tied with Morton on 29 points but Morton's significantly worse goal difference had them in the play off spots which proved to be vital as Motherwell thrashed them in the final. while Ross County went right back to the Championships.

    Hamilton are another team returning to the SPL winning the championship comfortably leaving behind Dundee Utd, Kilmarnock & St Johnstone but not Dunfermline who suffer back to back relegations. Berwick avoided following them thanks in large part to the league's top scorer Bob McHugh. Forfar won League 1 and are the only team coming up from there this season while Queens Park and Hampden return to League 2 finishing 1 point clear of bottom spot and then won there play off game to survive. The most dramatic league by a long way this term was League 2. The two remaining promoted sides Hawick & Brora fought out a season long battle for the title with Hawick taking the trophy home. Elgin City fell out of the league loosing to Vale of Leithen

    Only 8 Dons players. This is because they used Frizzell as a right winger. Which he was until this season rather than a striker possibly costing us 2 spots. Joe Dodoo got on the left wing as i couldnt keep one fit but that will be different next season Trust me! Then Musonda at Celtic was far better than Ryan Jack in the midifield. Strangly it was back up player Henriksen not starter Roca that got in the team of the year.

  34. Pre Season 2021/22




    A summer that can only get 10/10 when it comes to keeping players, buying players and sorting out contracts. On the flip side we had to gamble on stocking our side up with a stacked first team, lots on loan and a overflowing under 20s including a few players without work permits.


    A very strange summer with far more players leaving than joining. The EU ban is causing chaos to my transfer plans but we picked up a stunning French midfielder on a free and possibly the best regen DR in the save at almost double the record fee for a Scottish team.

    Our only major signing of the summer He's been on my "unrealistic" short list for years and when his team Mainz were relegated a realistic fee of £21.5m was the buy out clause but the expected offers from Bayern and the like never came and we had a unchallenged run at him. Thankfully the usual twats at the work permit office must of had a day off as we add a 3rd career player to our defense. IF We can convince him to stay long term at the end of his contract in 2026! Buy out fee is £60m

    Out
    5 regular starters from last seasons team move on. Last years record transfer Calum Chambers goes back to England with Southampton with our £11.25m immediately returned with another £4m to come over the next two years. His right wing man Isaac Pereira had £8m buy out clause that he was unwilling to negotiate so he moved on to Napoli. For £1m less the man that i expected to change the teams fortunes around Serge Gnabry went back home to Arsenal with £7m almost covering his medical bills. Most controversial move of the summer was long term captain Ryan Jack. He had a awful season compared to the rest of the squad and felt like he had not grown with the squad and its time to give others a chance. Jack can at least say he's now in the top 10 for overall Aberdeen appearances with 399 and still has a good few years to go down south and prove himself. Former starting player Christoher Jullien. He had sank to the depths of being a squad player so £4,5m cheque from Sunderland was enough to turn my head. Final major player on the move was Oussama Tannane. Never broke into a starting spot and with other wingers coming back from loans another £4m total return was not to be sniffed at. Two youth player's i couldnt get into the first team and was not willing to sign contract extensions were Karl Sveinsson & Miroslav Hora. One went to Dundee the other went to Real Madrid.....

    The first half was a real worry as the Scottish players still seemed deflated from Scotland going out of the World Cup qualifers but quick burst seen goals from Macauley & Garcia got us on the way and a late strike from Lozano secured a goal from each of my attacking midfielders with Klein rested for the big game with PSV

    Never in doubt. I've had tougher SPL games than i've had with PSV this season. They even opened the scoring with a o'g as if there own performance was not poor enough

    Celtic played a extra game to make the gap seem respectable. If Partick win there game in hand they will be 2nd! Hearts and Hibs tied in 4th with Hearts led by Louis Vaughan looking far more impressive. Bottom 7 cast adrift but you would think if Rangers got a decent manager they may fly up the table. Klein's rest days has contributed to his fall to 3rd in the scoring charts

    Take it away Laura Goodwin


    If Rangers are to return to the top 6 it wont be with Paul Lambert who was sacked, understandably so after this abysmal start to the season. He worked miracles to bring home the 2017/18 League title in his first full season and kept bringing them into Europe despite lagging behind Celtic & Aberdeen

    This was where our champions league campaign was supposed to end for the year but miracles do happen as the following 90 minutes showed. Stalemate in the first half was good but not what we needed. I was looking down on all Juve's key players and hoping to get a lucky break for the first goal before totally shutting up shop and that moment of luck came in teh 51st minute from Lars Skutelis, Klein's back up to most of you. Juve never looked like a team that had a good half hour to save there season and that was decided when one of there better players on the night Jorrit Hendrix scored a O'G to secure our past into the last 16. Only question was did we finish 1st or 2nd. I had given up on top spot due to Arsenal playing PSV but more on that later

    Fresh from a huge night of action in Italy this was yet another potential bannana skin that we got round without much issues. It also clashed with my birthday "in game date" so the least Klien could have done was struck home a 88th minute penalty to get the party started sharpish, Not that there will ever be a birthday party as my Mum banned me from birthday partys after i was a disaster at my 6th party and there was never another one after that, even though that was in 1993!

    After a very busy month in the SPL our gap is at 13 points having only dropped 4 points all season. Celtic are in a lonley 2nd spot with the capital teams fighting for 3rd. Partick may be running out of gas and Rangers under new leadership might have shut me up and the top 6 looks kind of solid already. Motherwell and Inverness are starting too look lonley at the bottom and seem to be the worst two sides in the lead. Klein is back in the golden boot race after getting a few games this month

    Transfer Window




    Aberdeen
    Two u19s join
    Aberdeen Back where it all began-1.pngAberdeen Back where it all began-2.png


    Busy window in the sales category we had a busy one. The midfield overload problem is over. We sold Fernando Rey to Barcelona £7.75m and Markus Henriksen to Inter £11.5m will give our youth players a chance as well as getting a great return on players that were rotational. We also sold back up wing back Mario Landi. £3m for a player thats been in the medical room all season is good for me! We also lost u20 RB Ryan Dingwall who i thought was signed up but clearly was not and Man Utd got him for a steal at £575k.

    PSG need to go away. Now there breaking the £100m mark bringing in Thiago Maia from Barcelona. They then spend £56m on a player we were once in the running for for FREE, Gui! Another crazy transfer with links to me was my Scotland Left Back Andy Robertson joining Chelsea for £28m, possibly reaching £38m One more then our first star midfielder Diego Poyet moved from Germany to Liverpool for £22,5m




    SPL transfers
    For once it wasnt all about Aberdeen's deal. Rangers managed to spend almost £10m. Where was this money for Paul Lambert? Another piece of good karma involving Aberdeen as a defender we sold to Dundee in the summer for £275k has just joined Man Utd for £5,75m

    First 3 seasons saw little progress. We were always 2nd at best but eventually Rogers left Celtic and lost all there good players bit by bit, Rangers never improved we got a bit better every year and eventually got enough money and players to be ahead of them. I have to admit the run has taken even me by surprise as the game gets smart to your tactics ect. Thing is except Hibs and Celtic for the most part every team has had a glaring weakness thats made them easy to beat. I expected at some stage either Hibs or the Old Firm would beat me just with the law of averages but so far so good.

    Klein takes a major Dons record with his 137th league goal against Hearts he is now the clubs record league scorer. He only needs another 25 to overtake King Joe Harper as the clubs all time scorer in all competitions

    That wasnt the only record going in February. The late equalizer against Celtic equaled the world record for unbeaten league matches then in the final game of the month we broke the world record to move to 107 league games unbeaten. The best ever

    This was a crime! I've how this game remained scoreless for the final 88 minutes is one of the great mystery's of this game. We hammered them in the first half but Chelsea had the better of the 2nd half. No away goal is bit of a ball breaker but i have faith that when we get them back to Pittodrie we can knock them out

    This was a game i worried about. Right after a European game with the world record so close Celtic came closer than anyone to finally beating us at what would have been the most heartbreaking time but someone upstairs was looking down on us and especially Ross Macauley who saved the day. Celtic did manage to protect a record of there own that we were hunting down we were looking for our 16th win in a row but fell well short of Celtic's 25 in a row

    Were top and having our best league season ever. Hearts & Hibs are doing there best to keep up with Celtic for 2nd while Rangers & Partick looking good for top 6. The bottom 2 teams are so bad it will take a miracle for them to move up the table. The golden boot race took a major hit as Griffiths is set to miss a March after missing most of this month with a injury.
