I would agree with Brown 2bh.  Hibs are balanced, solid, creative and clinical with a manager that is tactically astute and fearless.  If they keep that team together for next season I may even chuck a fiver on them for the league.

I remember all the hype about how Hibs were world beaters before we played them at Pittodrie and absolutely hammered them.

I see no reason why we can not put them in their place again on May 5th. :thumbsup:

The way they played us off the park last time?  No Maclean available?  That's 2 I can think of.

Brown will be basing it on the fact Hibs tend to give Celtic a game, whereas Aberdeen and the huns generally wilt in front of them.

Hibs are a decent team and in Lennon have a manager who has less respect for the OF than McInnes.  On their day they can give anyone a game, but equally so can we.

This is a very offensive post, as all crap quotes that seek to distort reality are.

Either you don't understand the game or you want to see AFC in a better light than we deserve.

For a start, nobody was saying they were world beaters in December. Some of us watched them for three full consecutive games in a row, twice on the telly against the OF and then at Pittodrie. There is no doubt that they were hugely impressive against teams we can't get close to and were unlucky not to win BOTH games. We got them at a good time and it was telling that they were pretty exhausted and ineffective in midfield that day.

But that wasn't even the story of the game. It was a rare and sublime cross by McLean and a glorious cutback by GMS for the first but the early goal wasn't even the story of the game. It was an Ambrose fuck up that sunk them quickly followed by some shite goalkeeping that gifted GMS twice and at 3-0 before HT, game over, before we drew the 2nd half 1-1.

If you see no reason why we can't beat them again, perhaps you might explain how they, and others can compete against the OF and we can't? What are the qualities that I'm missing in our journeymen squad?

Hibs were brilliant against Celtic. And they humped us last out. So let's not substitute reality with what we want to be the case. We would need to see a hunger and desire in these last few games that has been sadly lacking the whole season if we have any realistic aspirations of second place. Rose-tinted spectacles aren't going to paper over the cracks of McInnes and his band of wage-thiefs.

Sorry if my opinion offends you.
I am an optimist and always believe that Aberdeen will win their games.
All the media talk before our game at Pittodrie claimed Hibs were the better club.
I have no idea why our players bottle it against Celtic and The Rangers.It is a mind set thing.
I will give you that Hibs were awesome against Celtic and they fully deserved their win.
I fully believe that when Aberdeen play their top game they are a match for any team in the Premiership.
We do need more quality back up for the squad for next season.

These last 4 games will prove if I am right or wrong. :wave:

Really? Hate to say it, but no points from Rangers or Celtic this year when almost everyone else has taken something makes me question your statement.

Sorry Lencarl. Good on you for wanting the best. Don't we all but we are humans and therefore it is inevitable that we will have different outlooks, attitudes, beliefs and opinions.

I don't give a fuck what the media say. Results are all that matters. Their opinions are just opinions too.

Who knows how we will finish the season. I'm naturally optimistic too but as far as 2017/18 is concerned, I think we have overachieved and have performed like shit most of the time.

Yet it's strange that we all believe we should be taking points from the Tims and (to a much lesser extent) the Huns. I agree with Rocket when he says:

I think we have overachieved and have performed like shit most of the time

I actually think the squad we've assembled is really poor this season. Worse than Hibs, probably somewhere between Killie and Hibs. That's why I'm really surprised by the level of expectation that fan's have for our performances against the better teams (I'm going to include hibs in that so as not to dwell on the "points against the old firm" shite as if it should have any relevance - points against better teams would be more appropriate, with Limassol etc included). Based on our squad, I'd say that we should be winning our home games against the huns and hibs (and hertz) and getting in the region of 3-4 points against the Tims). Anything more would be unrealistic in my opinion as we're really not that good. Outside our first 11, perhaps 13 players, we're way off what we should be. If we're missing one of our influential players (McLean, Shinnie or McKenna lets say, Christie earlier in the season) we should immediately revert to underdog against any of the top 4 at home. 2 players, we're looking at about Hertz's level and 3 we're a mid-bottom-six team.

The thing about McInnes is that there are no surprises generally. He gets the team to perform at the level they should perform over a period of time with little variance (the odd really shite game, the odd really good game). I don't expect the sort of run you might get from a more inspiring manager. He's very technical and very cautious in approach to the game, and leaves little room to chance. We've come from behind to win just 3 times this season (although a bit harsh as we've had numerous clean sheets too). He's built a squad this season with glaring holes over last. The first 11 is decent, probably better than hibs, slightly worse than the hun post-January, but take any decent player out of that (I dinna mean swapping Arnason for O'Connor) and we're fucked. Look to the bench in any individual game and we're fucked. I don't think we have any right to expect to finish second this season, and I think it'll take a huge effort to do so. We need to keep everyone fit (McLean already suspended for Hibs I think?) and I don't think that's likely. With our squad, I think third would be about right if we were looking at it objectively. 3 home ties might just help us out though.

Quote
Former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard, presently a youth coach at Anfield, has become odds-on favourite with bookmakers to become the next Rangers manager after Ibrox chairman Dave King was spotted at the Reds' Champions League semi-final against Roma on Tuesday.

Gerrard will NOT be the next Sevco manager.
The media never fail to amaze me with the crap they come out with.

Steven Gerrard in talks to be Rangers manager. Talks between all parties are to be on-going, but SunSport understands a deal is close with director of football Mark Allen leading the Ibrox delegation.

No chance this is true. Why would they appoint a guy with zero manager experience. It makes no sense but it is Sevco we are talking about I suppose

PS Maybe the Admin chappies could move this post to the 
Dirthy Filthy Hun Scumbag Vermin (deceased), liquidated & Green abondons ship thread to discuss should this crap come true. :wave:

Ally McCoist on The Rangers manager job
Quote
“But, listen, it doesn’t matter who gets that job, you can give it to anybody, you can give it to Guardiola, Mourinho, Steven Gerrard.“If they don’t get the money to buy better quality players they’ll continue to finish second behind Celtic. “That’s the bottom line.”



When have The Rangers ever finished second behind Celtic? :confused:

I'm sure that Celtic will improve with a better Rangers team. Also the whole of Scottish football will improve with a better Rangers team.
The whole of Scottish Fooball including Celtic would improve without these minkers in the SPFL. :thumbsup:

McLeish said the other night on Radio Clyde that it would be a disaster for Scottish Football if the huns didn't finish second. 

Still trying to work that one out to be honest...
