Dons vs RoPs 2nd leg
« on: July 16, 2019, 10:37:14 AM »
Whilst we got the win, conceding an away goal really was amateur.  Hopefully the it was just first game cobwebs that needed to be blown away.  Still still a fully match fit Dons side wipes the floor with them, but we can't afford to have any concentration lapses.  Be interesting to see if Ojo or Brophy are fit / start.

Hopefully this isn't some sort of whoosh moment here Manc, but Ojo isn't eligible for this game and Brophy is a Killie player as far as I am aware.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Fuck sake Manc.  ;D

I've still got two tickets for the home end going if anyone's travelling up without tickets? That includes Brophy.

Donsdaft Jnr has sent in his first report, Alan Whicker he's not.

Arrived in Finland, shitload of trees.

I believe the Foundry Bar are showing the game.

No idea if that is a decent pub.

So how many of our squad are out because it's a plastic pitch? ???

Wondered the same thing. Taylor play ahead of Devlin? McGinn doesn’t usually do the plastic I think? I doubt Bryson is risked.

 Home of the Foundry Bar Reds,inc the shaved ape....just to warn you


 Must admit though,there should be a good atmosphere.Drove past it on my home during an earl k/o Euro tie last year,and we'd just scored a goal. A fine rendition of Stand Free ringing down Holburn St as I went past

Ha, was texting my killie mate around the time and he'd come up in conversation! Proof reading  :hammer:

So back to the topic of my original question  ;D  Has Bryson been confirmed as fit for this one?

Foundry will be heaving i would imagine, probably a few bars showing it.
  I would imagine Devlin & Bryson would miss out with artificial surface.

Was talking to a Cork supplier the other day, and he's said that you're going to start seeing a change in the quality of plastic pitches. He said NL have banned the rubber artificial pitches (haven't checked this yet) and moved to Cork which provides better impact resistance for players. I doubt this has it yet, but be interesting to see if uk follows suit.

Experienced this in the states, I certainly refer the cork and not as 'sticky' as the rubber.

Anyway, anyone got a score prediction since the threat is for the match. I expect 3-0 us. Main, Gallagher, and Ferguson.

Been confirmed that Devlin and Leigh are both out already for this one so we already going to have the joys of Ash Taylor starting. Even with the bombscare at the back we should still have enough in the team to see off RoPS who really are a rotten side. Would think we will not be as attack minded as we were last week which might not be a bad thing now.

Oot
Work
Mad dash to Tron
Flat
2-1 McGinn and Wilson.
