In for this one, but not looking forward to it. Probably wouldn't have bothered if I didn't have an Season Ticket.

Looking for a big reaction from the players on Saturday, but they are usually screwed due to the tactics of the bearded one.

I'll go for a 2-0 win through 2 Sam Cosgrove penalties.

Not seen anything to suggest any of the long term absentees will be back so other than Considine in for Vyner I cannot see there being many changes to the line up for Saturday. I would like to see us going with an extra forward and play Anderson up beside Cosgrove but just cannot see McInnes changing from 1 up hoofball we have been playing. Hibs seem to have steadied the ship a little so this could be a harder game than it would have been a few weeks ago. If it was not for the fact I have a season ticket I would not be going to this as most of the games I have been to this season have been brutal to watch due to our style of play and I cannot see it being any differnet on Saturday.

Fair play for making the trek up to the game this weekend, but I have to agree I cannot see McInnes changing his style for it.

McKenna could be in the running for this apparently although I suspect discretion will turn out to be the better part of valour and I think at best a bench place will be the outcome. Consi definitely fit.

Hibs have been God awful all season but getting to the League Cup semi plus drawing with the dhims will certainly have boosted their confidence. Given our horrendous form and decimated squad I don't think a draw would be a disaster in this one, save for Motherwell perhaps being able to put a bit more daylight between us if they win their game.

1-1 (McGinn)

Another team on a dross run of form, their Manager was touted as being sacked less than a fortnight ago.

Therefore, McInnes will set us up defensive and hope to hit them on the break. Home or not.

2-2 ( Cosgrove Pen, Considine )
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.

Anyone going along to the protest before hand? Saw something on twitter about it, but nothing more.

We won't win this one, but can see us fluking a draw.

First chance to Hibs, good save from Lewis apparently. If anyone gets a stream, can you please share it.

While St Mirren currently lay claim to the lowest number of shots in the Premiership so far, Derek McInnes' side are second-bottom with just 56 shots in their first seven games.

No shit sherlock.

There should be now FFS. Absolutely atrocious stuff.

Curtis Main better get papped in the reserves and Bruce Anderson needs to take his place in the Squad.

Hopefully McInnes can give Main a lift back down the road when they both fuck off.

Dreadful performance although amazingly once a goal and a man down it did improve somewhat. However Hibs could and should have been 5 up before Cosgrove equalised, that they weren't was down purely to rank awful finishing by Doidge. Looks like we dodged a bullet last season when we had our offer for him turned down. Even then....Kamberi should have won it for Hibs late on.

Main I'm now writing off completely. Tries hard (too hard today) but just not the quality we require. Ferguson must cop a hefty club fine for getting sent off needlessly with a shocking challenge 30 seconds from time. God only knows what our midfield will look like against Motherwell in a fortnight. Gleeson, Campbell, Hedges and Gallacher? Logan was shockingly bad yet again. Vyner isn't great at right back but surely a better bet than Logan in his current form.

At least the international break hopefully gives us a chance at getting some of our injured players back. Doubtless Devlin will return injured from Scotland duty and be out until after the January break (how fucking bizarre is it that, at best, our 3rd choice centre half is in the squad).

McInnes oot!

 Just back.Missed our goal because I couldnt see us scoring  ::). Doesnt hide the fact at how ineffectual we were though. Both sides were amateurish in the first half.We were predictable,either punt to Cosgrove,or get it out wide and ping in a hopeful ball.Neither Ferguson nor Campbell convince me that theyre ever going to have the nous to influence enough of a game.Barely saw either of them.
    Was wondering how we could use Gallacher since he's here.Maybe someone to break up play and add a bit of energy to the midfield ala Willo? Alongside a cool head,like a fit Bryson etc? Ethan Ross,i would like to see what he could do with a run of games. Main? maybe trying too hard due to lack of service? ...maybe just a donkey like.
    Should have been 2 or 3 Hibs though,but we Doidged a bullet with their striker.Good old Sam making the most of the scraps he got.He's also pretty nifty with his feet when the balls not in the air,wish we'd try playing through teams a bit more when the punts obviously arent working
   Better than expected crowd,decent Hibs support,shit game.Only positive the return of McKenna

 side note  -  be interesting to know how many goals weve scored because we had to get a goal,like today,and how many weve lost or been closer to losing because we decided to manage a game

Well, another shit show and bizarre how we only started playing after Main got sent off.

International break coming at a good time, as others have alluded too, it'll hopefully mean more bodies back.

Lewis Ferguson has sadly shown to be the overrated flop I have said many a time that he is. Only now he's not getting the goals to mask it, hopefully folk wake up to it now, I am not disputing the boy could become a good player, but right now he's showing his inexperience and simply put, is not good enough for an Aberdeen FC midfield.

Away to Motherwell next, who sit 4 points ahead of us  :-[ a defeat there and well, we have Celtic after that to put it right  :eek:

McInnes oot.

Well we played our get out of jail card, but boy that was a hard watch.

You know the sort of day you are going to have when you see Curtis Main line up alongside big Sam and we were pretty much garbage. To be fair to Main he did run around a lot, but I don't see anything other than a carthorse. Sam just keeps on scoring, but some of his all round play is poor, a couple of times he did some decent work only to put the ball out wide to the wrong player, which was frustrating in an afternoon like today.  A great header for the equaliser though

We can only be thankful we got that point as they really should have given us a doing. They do pass the ball around well though, but they were let down badly by that striker Doige? who we tried to sign at some point.

I'll take the point, but boy we are terrible and I heard that McInnes didn't do the media interview after the match, which I found strange.

Never mind Brexit, I just want dexit

I wouldn't have said we started playing after Main got sent off, we were still shit for a good while after he went, but we put a good fight for the last 10 minutes.
