Comfortable win for Cove today. Like last week, a howling gale which meant one keeper couldn't get over the half way line and the other couldn't help but kick it out for a goal kick but at least we didn't have pissing rain this time. Just baltic, the two coldest matches I've ever attended, in consecutive weeks!

The first was direct from a corner but the second was sublime skill by McAllister to get past his man and drive it into the danger area. So refreshing to see an honest team. They're a skilful bunch and they play with great heart. Wish the stadium wasn't so fucking cold though. Roll on the spring and summer.

Cove’s win today coupled with Edinburgh City’s draw with Brechin leaves them 8 clear with 11 left to play.

Hun drop 2 more points at St Johnstone and Stevie May scores his fifth in 9.

Looks like the huns league season has gone to shit, much like our own, any chat of Getrard for the sack yet or is Europe keeping him alive, much like our cup win at Killie giving DM some relief?

Interesting that May is scoring, has he topped his aberdeen total of goals yet in his return to st Johnstone?

Gerrard and the whole Ibrokes backroom team were awarded new 4 year contracts only a few short weeks ago. If we think it's an expensive business to punt DM/Doc....those cretins in Govan have got a problem likely 4 to 5 times the size of ours if they want to punt Slippy et al. So I can't see their board taking any action for the foreseeable future. Even in spite of the orc hordes who are starting to turn on them in numbers. It's hilarious entertainment for everyone else looking on though. Especially as by this time next week, they could be (in a perfect world) left with nothing but their pride to play for.

As for May......if I'm correct he managed 8 goals in 61 appearances for us. Since returning to St Johnstone he has 7 goals in 22 appearances. He took a lot of stick for his lack of goals for us. But him and Cosgrove got a run in the side between October - December as a strike duo and in that period we picked up a load of victories. Cosgrove was the one scoring all the goals....but I could live with that. They were working effectively together. I'd still rather have May than Main tbh. But right now.....I'd rather have Main in the side than Cosgrove

Big win for St Mirren last night @ Motherwell.
Just watched the highlights on BBC. Remeber being impressed with Durmus at last game we had in Paisley and in the brief highlights of last night he looked like a handful again.
They zare now six points ahead of Hearts with a superior goal difference
They'll go into Saturday's cup tie with confidence high.
Think right now I'd take a replay at Pittodrie

Sevco should be 2 up in Braga. Horrendous finishing from Kamberi then Kent.

Braga defence makes ours look positively watertight

Hoping that the Braga attack can somehow make up for their defensive frailties but not convinced. FTH

Third of the way through it already and no goals but will be astounded if this finishes nothing each.
Unfortunately as TC says Der Hun are creating chances and you'd think they'll take one of them ::)

Huns missed a penalty just before half time. Decent save from the keeper but a piss poor attempt from Hagi.

The Braga left sided defender Silva is a total bombscare. I'd genuinely prefer to have Ricky Foster in my side than this imposter. Can't see the game finishing 0-0 but sadly it's sevco I expect to see scoring

Celtic knocked out 3-1 by Copenhagen. All 3 Copenhagen goals the result of horrendous Celtic defending, worst being their firs with Simunovic making a total dick of himself. Even so they pulled it back to 1-1 with 7 minutes to go and should have just regrouped and waited for extra-time. Why the hell don't they defend as comically against us ffs?

Can now envisage sevco actually drawing Copenhagen tomorrow. What's more...if they do I think sevco would beat them. Horrible horrible thought that der Hun could end up in the last 8.

Hearts do us a huge turn by walloping Hibs. Thoroughly deserved and Hibs should have had Scott Allan sent off at the penalty he gave away. Also should have had McNulty sent off first half for stamping on the guy with massive facial birthmark....hopefully the Compliance Officer gets involved and bans him tomorrow which would rule him out against us.

Surely Celtic will also do us a turn against Livi, even with it being on Livi's horrible plastic pitch. I doubt Motherwell will falter at home against County but although I think we will turn Killie over yet again, a point wouldn't be an absolute disaster.

Ah well. At least Sevco got beat. Slippy G might be on his way out soon!

Mourinho's gutless wonders let Kenny McLean off the hook tonight in the penalty shoot out. Brilliant result.

Liverpool just taken to the cleaners on their own patch.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

Stunning keeper fuck up cost them. He was shit for the second and third goals too. Only got themselves to blame. Wijnaldum as good as won them the tie and then Klopp subs him off? Bizarre.

No 'todays' but BBC have been showing FA Cup rewind the last couple of weekends

the first 2 episodes are on Iplayer now (currenlty on the 2nd bottom row of the page)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b006xv04/the-fa-cup

Love old school FA cup football and watching John Barnes in his Watford days is a joy

Oh how I have missed watching football. Final game of the day is Real Mallorca v Barcelona. Not the same without fans but better than nothing.

Watched 2 Aussie Rules games over the last couple of days.
One played at the MCG to complete silence other than the players voices/ refs whistle etc.
Another players at the smaller Geelong stadium but they either played crowd noises through the tannoy system or dubbed it onto the TV coverage. Whatever they did it really made a difference to the point I thought they had opened the stand underneath the TV cameras.

Few suggestions that the crowd noise could be used at EPL games. I really hope they do and the same with the SPL when it returns
