i wonder if they will ask for 3000 volunteers or if 800 of those will just happen to be Polish supporters?

Celebrating achievement is fine.  The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.

Is your astonishing ineptitude at picking winners in the Nailed On doubles concept in the betting thread a symptom of your knowing fuck all about fitba or is it an indication that you lose in most things in life?

The only people who say we are all equal are those who are less than average.

Celebrating achievement is healthy. Resenting high achievement is the preserve of those who can't achieve anything but fuck all.

Why do you need to name a training pitch?

Many will disagree, I just don't think ANYONE needs to be put up on a pedestal.  Same goes for things like the Queen's honours.  We are all equal.

No idea on the line up, but he will definitely bring Ferguson back in and I would imagine that it will be Bryson that drops out. 

Would personally like to see Vyner start at Centre Back, alongside Considine. McKenna isn't settled, personally feel that until the Transfer Window closes, and we have confirmation that he has removed his Transfer Request ( Not sure if it's automatically binned in the event that we rejected it anyway ) then he should be dropped from the 11, certainly don't feel that he's our best Defender, his current form would back that up, that for me, goes to Considine at the moment.

Don't think we'll win comfortably, I actually think we'll come back from 1-0 down at HT to gain a point, Cosgrove converting a Penalty.

Kilmarnock 1 vs 1 Aberdeen ( Cosgrove, Penalty )

With McInnes talking about Wilson being the new Christie I would expect Wilson to replace Bryson if he is out injured and Ferguson to replace either Gallagher or McGinn. Personally I would also drop Ojo to play an additional attacking player as I do not see the need for a defensive holding midfielder against Kilmarnock but no chance McInnes will do anything like that.

Hopefully the game is better than last 4 and we can get away from the hoofball we have been playing and get the ball on the ground and play with pace. Not sure I could stomach a whole season of what I have watched of late.

In
Lift over and hopefully time for a beer
Away end
Lift back to the capital
2-0 Wilson and Hedges

I guess the question would be then, if you don't name a training pitch after a club great, then what or who do you name it after that supporters can relate to?

"The Donna from the back office pitch" would mean diddly squat to the fans.
As there is not an infinite amount of pitches, the "honour" should surely go to someone who is well associated with the club,?

Cannot agree with the "not more important than anyone else" comment. The team of the early to mid 80s were part of something that will never ever be repeated in our club's history. Indeed under the present conditions...…...I doubt we will ever see a Dons side win the League again never mind a European trophy. As such, they deserve special treatment. As should every side that wins us as trophy. With the ever increasing financial advantage the arse cheeks hold over every other club in Scotland, provincial clubs winning trophies will be as rare as hen's teeth.

I agree Consi deserves some sort of recognition for his long service, but that can wait until he has retired. It's doubtful we will ever see "one club men" at the top level of football ever again.
