Dons - Dhims - Sun
« on: October 23, 2019, 08:19:42 AM »
Not the team we'd like to face after the surprise victory down at Fir Park, but we're always going to play them at some point. I really hope DM doesn't resort to type and try to contain them. It never, ever works.

The team should go into this with confidence. Let them play!

Celtic have not looked great this year and here we are again, despite injuries, if we have a go you never know. We had a go at Motherwell against an in form team above us in the league, why not have a go at home this weekend? We are not expected to get a result so why not have a go? (one of the reasons so many now dislike DM.)

Anyway, we won’t have a go.

0-3. No scorer.

Would love to think we would go at them like we went after Motherwell but just cannot see McInnes changing the habit of a life time and expect us to sit in with us inevitably losing when someone makes a mistake at the back. Not paying £50 for train so giving Sunday a miss might watch on tv.

Saw a stat on twitter that we need to get 3 points from the next 2 games to avoid having the worst start under DM. But oddly enough, we win both and we actually got to having the best  :dunno: funny game, football.

 Deeks probably still recovering from the over positive performance at Fir Park.Be nice if it was a turning point for him but wont hold my breath


  A meek performance in a 1 - 4 defeat.   Og for the Dons

Wouldn’t say that makes it a funny game, I’d suggest it shows how consistent we’ve been under McInnes.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

No, I meant more that this seasons has been perceived to be a terrible start to the season.  Completely agree that it shows how consistent we've been.

Win the next two we are 6-3-2, 21 points.

Season 17-18 after 11 league games we were 8-2-1, 26 points.
Season 15-16 after 11 league games 8-0-3, 24 points.

My bad, hadn't realised I'd missed the out one of when posting that. Regardless, we're almost on par with where we usually are.

Realistically I think we will have 16 or 18 points after 11 games. Out of curiosity -

19-20 - 15 Points after 9 games
18-19 - 18 points
17-18 - 26 points
16-17 - 18 points
15-16 - 24 points
14-15 - 19 points
13-14 - 20 points

We must be due a result against them so why not Sunday.

3-2 us Sam, Hedges and a Wilson screamer with the last minute of the game.

I just hope we give our all and try and play football and forget about the usual containment which never works.

L.A beat me to it, but was about to highlight the error of your ways Manc.
Season 15-16 was a crazy season, we had 24 points after 8 games, lost to Hibs in League Cup, proceeded to pick up only one point out of the next fifteen, go on a decent run of form and end the season with 3 points from the last 18 available.

Crazy crazy stuff.

Aye I am confident we will get something out of the game on Sunday ana. Might even be the full 3 points. But Considine must not be played at left back....Forrester will tear him a new one.

The only downside if we do win is that come season's end, we might find that those 3 points hugely contributed to helping sevco win their first ever league championship. I pray that doesn't happen.

May as well continue on from my negativity pre-Motherwell! That turned against me abruptly, fingers crossed for the same outcome.

We will get pumped 3-0 and put up as meek a fight as you're likely to see  :thumbsup:

Tims come back from behind to win. Hopefully they've exerted themselves and will be tired on Sunday   :-\

I backed Lazio at 13/5 in-play midway through the first half so that result wasn't what I was looking for! But I'm not sure that they'll have any tiredness from over-exertion, rather the confidence they'll get from beating a Serie A side and the manner they did it will help them going forward.

It's 11 v. 11 at the end of the day. Lazio are just above mid-table, as are Aberdeen. They've lost twice in their league. So have AFC. The likes of Hamilton, St Mirren, Livi etc. would tank the likes of Sampdoria, Genoa, Spal etc. because Scottish is better than eyetie so it'll be ok on Sunday.

There's a flaw in that critical thinking path I feel. The assumption may be its weakness.

I actually think Livi might have a bit of a chance at beating one of those sides at home. Purely on the strength of their pitch being the worst in the whole of Scotland. Of course they would ship 6 or 7 minimum in the return leg in Italy.

Celtic winning was probably the best result for us. It isn't usual that they would lose 2 in a row no matter who the opponents were. I think theyve picked up a couple of injuries as well. Still confident we can get at least a point on Sunday.

Agree with your point, them winning is probably what was required.  That said, we're our own worst enemy. Play to our strengths and there's no reason why we couldn't get something from this. Feel oddly confident  :-\
