2 Wins from 2 and by all accounts, sounded like a shaky start but took control after the 10 minute mark. Very difficult away fixture overcame and we can now look forward to welcoming Dundee, a game we should comfortably overcome.

Added bonus, the vermin Hun bastards lose at home, Ryan Jack got sent off and the only negative with it is that it was another verminous pricks team that won there.

I am Aberdeen bound tonight for a good friends wedding tomorrow, shaping up to be a good weekend  ;D

Aye, nothing spectacular but a win at Dingwall following a win at Hamilton cannae be bad.
They've hardly been happy hunting grounds for the Dons.

Good turn around. Shay loves a goal against them, think that's 6 of his 12 goals are against county  :o

How did May play? Very surprised he started, but the bench was a very strong one, which isn't something we could really say last season. Great to see. Three points, huns and ryhun jack lost. Not a bad day all in all!

Aye, nae the best of records at either of those grounds, so have to be pleased with last 2 victories, might take a while for team to gel but so far so good.

ANother good win for us today after a horror start. I am happy for us to grind out results whilst the new players get up to speed with how we play and try and bring their own skills into the team. COntrast that with the shyte being spouted about Hibs, first season back in the top league and already certain of a top 6 finish and potential to challenge near the top, and here was me thinking the league ran until next May.

I do worry about us at the back though, not convinced we have a great central pairing, be good to see if we could try and sign someone better before the window shuts, but have a feeling our business is done.

I think that's the key, the team needs to gel and we can't expect perfect free flowing football. Both accies and county away are banana skin games and places we've dropped points recently, good wins and over time performances will improve!

Stevie May did a sublime move at one point just on the edge of the box. Very bergkampesque.

Utterly brilliant May!!!


Also may I add , Maynard made some nice moves too.He is going to be a good player for us.unlucky not to get a goal and a penalty by the looks of it yesterday.I like him.

Looks like 2-1 was a relatively fair reflection of the game, although that o'Brian guy has some shot on him. Second one in particular he was very unlucky with (thank goodness). Agree about the centre half pairing, it seems weak and I'd say most of them efforts /goal came from someone at the back not doing their job properly. Consi was very lucky towards the end that O'Connor was lively and did enough to put his opponent off.

May seemed to have a lot of nice touches and linked up with the players really well, so that's really promising, especially only after a few days training!

Great to see some options coming off the bench too. I know I said it earlier in the thread but for the first time I can remember we have serious depth on the bench.

Off the ball read out an email from a hibs fan which went on about how great they were and finished by claiming their biggest problem at the moment was Easter Road not being big enough, the evidence seemingly being their 17,634 opening day crowd against Thistle (about 2800 empty seats)
Cosgrove & co then prolonged this and even added fuel to it but all parties handily forgot the 8,135 home crowd from the midweek cup game (about 12300 empty seats).

I'd like to think the fan had their tongue firmly in their cheek but I suspect not


I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland

Nice to hear the lads giving an honest account of the game on redtv. Logan accepting fault for their goal but he more than made up for it in the end  :thumbsup:

Sounded like we were in charge after about 10 minutes onwards, although i was listening mostly to Red TV  ;D

Some hit from O'Brien at the end though, unlucky not to score.

Just watched the highlights and post match interviews.

Stevie May is going to be a great signing.

Rumours going around that May has one testicle tattooed green, the other white.

I'm sorry to break the news dd.
