I'll be there on Thursday but didn't renew my (2) season tickets.

It's going to feel a bit flat after Europe, especially if we return to the type of football we saw on Sunday.

However, we've had 3 good home performances and we may well blast five past the Croatians on Thursday.

5-3 anyone?

Embarrassing stuff. To play against such a shite team so cautiously was a disgrace. It flattened the fans and the game was a waste of everyone's time and money. We deserve to be papped out on Thursday. However I will love it if we turn it around as the wild celebrations from the Rijeka players and fans (including an OTT fireworks display) was also an embarrassment from them and will hopefully bite them on the arse.

At home games at least you don't hear 'One Derek McInnes' being sung much now and if it is it is very low key.

From what I see and hear I think most people are fed up of what is happening with the team over say the last 18 months.

I am also led to believe that Season Ticket sales have dropped a good deal this season and also the renewal of the DNS thing has plummeted also, make of that what you will.

I renewed my ST, but I admit to not looking forward to this season and not even bothering going on Thursday night.

I was going to go Thursday night, leave work early, 200mile drive up, watch game, food, 200mile back hame, get in around 2am and get up for work 6am Friday. But after that absolute pish on Sunday, I think i will just stay at home and watch on RedTV.

Hun. I'll be there, as I am without doubt the biggest fan on the board. I could actually get Stevie May with my loyalty points and still have enough to get Steven Gleeson in to the game on Thursday, which is the only way you'll see him at Pittodrie again.

If it had been anybody other than HNK Rijeka regardless of the first leg score I'd have been there for my 20th European evening at Pittodrie.  I've not yet had said refund confirmed by LNER in having to make a split decision where making Chikhura Sachkhere match inside a taxi from Berwick-upon-Tweed was concerned.  You see didn't want adding towards the stress I felt on morning of match when finding train got cancelled.  £350 is a lot of money regarding this disabled guy.  Already paid £184 beforehand on match brief, travel ticket, accommodation, hence each goal that night cost roughly £106.80!!!!!

I have 1-1 on coupon.  James Wilson Anytime Scorer.

Don't be confusing Gent with Genk (Genk were formed by the amalgamation of one of our old Euro adversaries Waterschei with Winterslag around 30 years ago)..................Gent are nowhere near the level of Genk and although I agree that our chances of progression are unlikely, should we manage to pull it off then it's an eminently winnable tie. Although another performance like Sunday's would result in a horsing

Fuck sake. Be as well starting Considine up front over Wilson or Main.

Had Cosgrove been fit, starting May alongside might not have been a bad option at all. We were at our best last season with those 2 in partnership throughout December....we scored a fair few goals in that period
.
Wondering who will be on penalties with no Cosgrove? GMS was back up option for penalties (and actually May was on them and hadn't missed, but got dropped when Stewart got brought back and Cosgrove inherited the job). McGinn probably?

Confirmation of Cosgrove being out here.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49324014

We should not be going with Main as his “style” of football will see him booked or sent off in Europe. See Stockley for evidence of that. He is also dug shite.

Would rather we went with Anderson or May along side Wilson. Agree with the rest of the team.

Think we are fucked anyway as cannot see us getting 3 without them scoring.

In
Bus up and hopefully a couple of pints
Y
Bus back to capital
2-1 McGinn and Wilson.

Imagine this was one of those McInnes moments, where someone is unlikely to play, but they then go on to make it, and we still lose  ::) I wouldn't put it passed him by the way.

We can't go with Main again, not on his own, we most definitely can't go with Stevie May, I am still at a loss as to why this fraud is still at our club, so really only leaves Anderson & Wilson, if we are persisting with the 1 Striker, if not, would probably like to see Main & Wilson partnering each other. We will need some sort of brutish player up front, with a more technically astute player beside him, be that Anderson or Wilson, who knows.

If Cosgrove is absolutely out though, and this is not some sort of tactical media mind games, then I fear another goalless Aberdeen, for the 3rd consecutive game.

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.
