  1. Just pointing out semi-finals haven't always been at Hampden; St Mirren (Celtic Park) - after they complained about Perth, presumably it was too neutral? Dundee (Tynecastle) Dundee Utd (Tynecastle) a few times Hibs (Dens) Dundee Utd (Dens) a few times Dundee (Tannadice) Hibs (Tynecastle) St Johnstone (Tynecastle) Bit tougher to do it since the Taylor Report but even then they could use Ibrox / Celtic Park / Murrayfield if needed. Playing the like of Morton or Motherwell at Hampden is crazy.
  2. No they haven't - been to plenty Semi-Finals at Dens, Tynecastle etc. IMO Hampden should be for Finals only, would make it more of an occasion. I think we'll be lucky to sell 7 or 8 thousand for this game. The McInnes years have taken away the novelty factor of Semi Finals & Hampden so spending the guts of £100, and an entire day getting to neutral Glasgow, for a guaranteed defeat will have limited appeal I reckon. If I thought we had a 10-20% chance of winning it might be different.
  3. Thought Cosgrove was the worst but there was a lot of competition, looked like we've taken up walking football now. Felt sorry for McGeouch and even Campbell looking up and seeing absolutely no movement ahead!
  4. Once the current 9 in a row circus is past I wonder if even Celtic & Rangers fans will start losing interest. There must come a time when it's as boring for them as it is for the rest of us?
  5. If I was in BoJo's position I'd grant a 2nd referendum just now, it's their best chance to win again and kill it for good. Leaving it for longer increases the chance of a Yes win IMO.
  6. I'll watch the 2 on BBC as I still believe you need 2 teams to make a football match, other than those at the game how many people actually want to watch Rangers v Stranraer??
  7. I thought Campbell was OK but yes, even if everyone was fit we'd lose tomorrow. However hardly any midfielders are fit, and it's hard to tell what formation we're playing a lot of the time, so sadly this will be a humping. We'll be lucky to cling onto 4th, let alone 3rd, by New Year when you see our fixture list this month.
  8. For a support who are British, to the point of being anti-Scottish, they seem delighted with their 54 regional titles. I've never seen them campaign for a UK League.
  9. Anyone can look tremendous in a training exercise against 11 cones. We gave a masterclass in how NOT to play against a team with better players. Ever since Van Dijk we've been allowing Celtic centre-half's to wander up the entire pitch at walking pace unchallenged, surely it's time to try something new next time!?
  10. You'll get 6 at Pittodrie and Easter Road pretty comfortably (and I know Celtic drew at Hibs).
  11. No, it was crap, Hibs played a bit when we first went down to 10 men but generally it was poor stuff all round. Between today and the last home game v St Johnstone I can't believe how bad Scottish football is right now. Although I've seen Hibs and Livi play a little bit of decent football on TV recently so maybe it's just Aberdeen games.
  12. Based on our "effort" v St Johnstone (and new injuries) & record at Tynecastle he could well get one in the League Cup Q-Final if he is still there by then.
  13. Finishing above Rangers twice was punching above our weight but I get your general point. This is his 3rd shot at rebuilding since his decent team broke up, looked encouraging against the Georgians at Pittodrie but worrying signs that we're slipping back to how we played last season. Maybe we'll see Bryson one day and he'll improve the ability to control and pass a football in midfield. Last night the Croatians were simply better at controlling, passing, dribbling at a decent tempo. We would probably have released their number 8 when we was young for being "too wee"!
  14. 1991 in the Premier League / SPL or whatever it was called at the time. Hearts have thought about it a couple of times since and Aberdeen might have had another chance 3 years ago if we'd had a Goalie in the 2nd half of the season but that's about it.
