Dons vs Hamilton - wed
« on: February 25, 2019, 09:01:10 PM »
We've done quite well against Hamilton recently, I hadn't realise how well until I looked in to it.  Won 4/5 (drew the fifth game) and three of the recent wins we didn't concede a goal. Hamilton haven't won in the last 5 away games and haven't scored a goal in any of those games. However, we've not won at home (in the league) since December, so swings and roundabouts I guess. I can't see that happening us keeping a clean sheet tomorrow, but we should have enough to win. 

Ball did enough to keep his place imo, so I'd be surprised to see him dropped.  I'm not really seeing the point in GMS at the moment, i'd say ditch him for McGinn, at least he's doing more than not.

We need to win this won and end this poor run of home form.

If he drops GMS then McGinn will come in who can be as equally as shit, but it may give GMS the boot up the arse he needs.

I think he will go with the same line up from Saturday and hopefully we will see Stewart get off the mark in a league game.

3-0 Cosgrove, Stewart and Ferguson.

Message to fans who will whinge and scream and shout themselves hoarse at the first misplaced pass: Fuck off and don't come back to Pittodrie. Your negativity helps nothing and your inability to process emotions like a grown-up is far more likely to have a negative effect on the players than a positive one. You're part of the fucking problem. I'm not clearing McInnes entirely but our away form supports the claim that we play better away from our horrible cunt fans. Entitled north-east wankers.  :hammer:

It is indeed yet another bizarre post from a bizarre small man.

He did get one thing right though; there are a lot of pricks up here who feel "entitled", mainly because the oil industry saved them from their true worth being found out.

The suggestion that home form is adversely affected by the crowd isn't worth arguing with. He doesn't understand that many football fans are fucking idiots and that the few particularly negative and ignorant ones who project their stupidity aren't representative of the majority. The emptiest vessels always make the most noise.

There is also a suggestion of resentment and jealousy. Even as a schoolboy in the 70's I was embarrassed by in your Glasgow slums. The affluence of our region is detested by the wos, Tam Cowan being a particularly bitter example.

Still out fae last night perhaps?

I think that over the past few seasons the dons fans have been quite positive. Our home form over the last few seasons - if it has anything to do with support provided (which is what is being suggested) - would back that up.

Weird time to be complaining about it.

This is a game where we should be looking to win comfortably and hopefully run up a few goals as Hamilton are pish. Normally I would hope we do not make any changes to a winning side however I would probably look to bring McKenna into the team to give him game time ahead of the Tribute Act in the cup. To accommodate him I would either drop Considine to play McKenna alongside Devlin or move Devlin to right back and drop Ball. Although Ball did not do anything wrong on Saturday I would not want him to be at right back if at all possible on Sunday. Giving Devlin a game at right back tomorrow would at least allow us to see if that will work ahead of Tribute Act. Still trying to switch things around work wise to see if I can make it to the game tomorrow.

Nah min my boss is sound.

Since everyone's apparently desperate for an explanation you can have one. At the last few home games in particular my enjoyment has been severely diminished by a combination of lacklustre results and aforementioned wankers sitting in close proximity. We're all aware of the general rule of thumb which states that you're never more than 6 feet away from a fucking bell-end at a football match but it's been particularly bad as the recent poor home run has gone on.

It is indeed yet another bizarre post from a bizarre small man.

So which part is it that you disagree with? Do you not think that negativity coming from the stands can have an adverse effect? Do you think that a good backing can have a positive effect? You said it's not worth arguing because I don't understand and then you almost back up my point by confirming what we already know that "many football fans are fucking idiots". ??? You got your dig in about how I'm a small man but I'm unclear as to what it is that you disagree with? A small man would've banned you umpteen times by now :)

Where's the suggestion of resentment or jealousy? From whom towards whom?

3-0 Dons Stewart McGinn Ferguson

I might be in the minority, but I'd either play a back 3 or drop Devlin. His distribution has been awful all season. I thought he was excellent, defensively, before injury but from day one he reminded me of Reynolds who's passing has always been suspect too. I think it would be very harsh to drop Considine and Devlin would be a significantly worse right back than Ball due to the fact that he's not great on the ball. I think we'll go for a back three of Devlin, Considine and McKenna with Lowe and McGinn playing high on the flanks. However, that is only because I think we'll be doing that against the hun, and so it'd be good to get some practice in. I'd prefer to play McKenna and Considine with a traffic cone at right back (Ball deserves his place after the St Johnstone game).

Devlin on the bench, GMS not in squad at all. Looks like a back four with ball at RB again and McKenna and consi in the middle.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

Aye, just got it sent to me:



Odd one having Devlin on the bench and surprising to not see GMS at all.  I know he's been shite, but still, surprising.

Looking at it again, it could also be 3-4-3:

Ball consi McKenna

McGinn shinnie Ferguson Lowe

McLennan cosgrove Stewart

You’d think GMS must have a knock if he’s left out completely.

Lowe off injured  :hammer:

Not playing particularly well.  We had one excellent chance, but Shinnie took it instead of leaving it.  Would have been a certain goal

Some goal from Hamilton, although Consi shouldn't have let him have a go at it. Seemed to assume the ball was going out.

We've had our fair amount of chances but just not able to put them away.  Stewart really unlucky with his header against the post.

Fucking dire performance. Bizarre goal to lose, Lewis I can only presume thought it was going over the bar as he made no attempt at all to tip it over.....it was deffo a cross not a shot but Hamilton to that point had most of the territory anyway.

Improved last 10 minutes of the half but FFS sevco walloped this lot at the weekend without breaking sweat. As good as Shinnie was on Saturday he's been as bad tonight. Ferguson totally anonymous....so far only McLennan, McGinn and Ball getting pass marks.

Big change in performance required 2nd half

Id say Stewart is playing well too.  Whatever he has done has created. That ball to McGinn was sublime.

McInnes's message in his pre-match interview on North Tonight was the need for the fans to be patient. We all want the three points he said. Strange that he chose today to focus on the fans. Against fucking Hamilton? Pathetic.
