    Can we stop with the personal attacks before this even goes anywhere? I thought we got rid of that a few weeks ago. I really appreciate the chat and banter here, and certainly appreciate differences of opinions. I talk shite much of the time, and I acknowledge that! But it doesn't need to get personal, not necessary. Take that elsewhere.

    I much preferred the old system which was home and away ties, winner takes all, with no seedings. Groups diluted the competitive element, and this dilutes it further. Everyone needs to be guaranteed the income to pay their OTT player salaries is the reality.

    An enigmatic man who had a very enigmatic team and some really enigmatic performances! Fondly remembered on the whole I'd say, RIP Ebbe. When you look at the lineups in the original post, if that Dons team can beat that Celtic team then there's no reason we can't beat them twice in a week now. Ebbe would lose Sunday's game 42-0 and beat them 7-6 next week, before getting scudded off one of the Edinburgh teams in the final.

    Shame. Seemed like a gentleman. Had a great team for about ten games once. Gets a lot of credit for a fairly mediocre record. Brought in some imaginative signings (had a lot of backing), and had some of the best and worst performances of our recent history.

    Its worth mentioning that McGinn had his best goalscoring form when he was playing up front for us. He chips in a reasonable amount of goals from midfield but goalscoring hasn't really been his main role since McInnes came in and he started playing on the wing. Legend is over-used these days but as there is no fixed criteria I think its up to individual to decide who qualifies for it themselves. I think McGinn will always be a memorable player. Perhaps if we had won a couple more trophies and had some good european runs this team might have some players we could class as legends.

    Didnt see the game but listened in. Should have had them buried in the first half alone.Right to think we would eventually make the break through in the second half if we had kept it up,but sounds like we ran out of ideas or self belief too easily. If we can learn to write off games like this and persist with how were playing,hopefully we'll eventually work out how to get through teams like todays. Work in progress. COYR

    Shankland was given leave of absence from the Scotland squad last night because his wife had a bairn. He will no doubt be back for Saturday. If the bairn's head is anything like the size of his, I feel sorry for his wife, she'll be suffering today.

    A good summation, totally agree. Especially the last bit. Since Strachan left, there seems to be a concerted effort to get Scottish based players involved. I wonder if they recognise that folk were losing interest in the Scottish granny championship no marks were getting a bit tiring. Good to see. The nation's league actually seems to have helped us in that regard. Also, it's good to see at least one or two stepping up directly from the u21s. It's never really been a route to the first team in the past.

    3 products of our maligned youth system involved tonight, plus McLean, shankland and mccrorie. Not bad. Come to think of it, was O’Donnell one of “ours” as a boy too?

    I think that's a very simple view. I would also argue that anyone voting for Biden is an imbecile. But then that has to be weighed against the perceived "shame" of not voting at all, which would be my position if I were in the US. Anyone who votes in that American electoral system is validating an anti-democratic sham. Whether Trump's speech had a touch of Idi Amin about it or not is largely irrelevant. In four years he's been largely - not completely - curtailed in anything he's tried to do that could be described as dangerous or pyschopathic. He's mainly held back by his own incompetence and lack of attention span. I don't see that changing with age. He's no Hitler, he doesn't have the ability. He's not even Steve Bannon. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that he's just a distraction that draws people into the minutae of his every utterance and throws up fake culture wars and arguments that take attention from the real issues.

    I’m calling it: anyone voting for Trump is an imbecile. His performance on the White House balcony the other night had a touch of Idi Amin about it. He’s a dangerous psychopath who will get what he deserves soon enough.

    It was Considine alongside Anderson in 06/07 at 19/20 years old that qualified us for Europa League under Jimmy. I think Anderson leaving the following season forcing the more regular inclusion of Diamond on the right and the signings of Mair and more so Mulgrew the season after, hampered Considine's development. Was around that time he seemed to bulk up lose what pace he had, before being shunted to left back. I think when he moved back after Mulgrew went to the Tims, he struggled against the better teams. Was almost nailed on for a few seasons he'd give away a penalty occasionally combined with a red card against Celtic. Sometimes people remember only that Considine; and not the dependable CB/LB we've had for the last 7-8 years since he improved his positional play and concentration. No doubt in my mind that Considine would have played at a higher level than Diamond did, had he left to England. Never really got why managers seemed to trust him at times then not. That said likely be 4th all time by seasons end and if he keeps playing for another couple of seasons could end up 3rd behind only Miller and McLeish. Good going considering some of the opinions I've read about him over the years.

    Premier Sport got all Celtic and Rangers games in the cup. Disgrace to sell it that way but that's the SFA, looking after the interests of two clubs only.

    I think that at some point you'd have to stop buying midfielders and accept that we can't have all the midfielders available in the league. Campbell is a fantastic player, reminds me of Shinnie, but we simply don't need him. A midfield three of Ferguson, McRorie and Campbell would mean ditching Wright or nullifying him out on the wing. It would be exactly the same as signing McGeouch in January just because he was available, overloading us in one area with little added benefit/improvement at the time. If we signed Campbell, then it'd have to be in place of Ferguson or McRorie, not as well as, but that wouldn't happen under McInnes. In reality, we'd see Ferguson shunted further up the pitch and revert back to the uninspiring, but hard-working, approach to games that we were looking like we'd finally got beyond. I'm guessing it's just agent talk to get a better offer from Motherwell or to try and stir up interest down South anyway. I think that we should be taking Ferguson to one side and having a word with him though. In my mind, Campbell is working harder and imposing himself on games more regularly than Ferguson and he needs to step up his game if he is to remain the "number one" midfield prospect in Scotland to build on his young player of the year from last year (McRorie also looks to be having more of an impact too). He's playing wthin himself at the moment in my opinion as Jack did for about 18 months around about Ferguson's age, and he needs to step out of that and start dominating games and opponents (instead of just winning "clever" free kicks). The game against Motherwell the other week should be the kick up the arse he needs and if he wants a big move down South then he needs to be better than the rest. Scoring penalties won't hide the lack of influence he's having too often in games. Like Jack, he's a very capable lad and projecting his/Jack's potential at his age, he can do better than the huns if he applies himself. I think Jack is a great footballer, but I think he should see going to the hun as a failure, as it would be for Ferguson.

    If we could get Campbell for something resembling sensible money then this is a no brainer for me and exactly the path we should be following. Buy up good young talent, proven at Scottish level, develop them further and sell them on. Imagine Fergie, McRorie & Campbell as a mid field three in our league. It would however spell the end of possibly two of McGeough, Ojo or Campbell.

    If we have turned a corner with our style of play then we simply must get rid of Main. Not as bad as I thought and gives you 100% on the pitch, but we are never going to build the club if we are happy with that Main as a standard of player.

    Good header from Watkins for his goal. Hopefully he starts to gain confidence from that and scores a few more. Could have clearly have been ahead by more, but their keeper did well.

    The whole thing is a loser's charter. Lose in one, you drop into the other. Celtic should be out of Europe having lost to Ferencvaros. But no, you get rewarded for losing these days. What a fix. Total crap and not in the spirit of cup football at all.

    County are not up to much this year, if we play an attacking line up we should win with a bit to spare. I'd like to see us sign a defender as soon as possible. Hoban can't play every game apparently, and we have no decent back up.

    Gavin Masterton loaned them something like £10m. It would have taken them 100 years of trading to pay it back. Also loaned the huns an astonishing sum of nearer £100m. He should have gone to prison for that nonsense. 'Sir' David Murray should have been sharing a cell with him. Epic fraudsters.

    Barry Nic Deek and Darren Young Derek Stillie?? Rickie Byrne Gary Dempsey Craig Brewster Stevie Crawford Was Scott Thom(p)son not with them at that time too and of course managed by Mr James Calderwood. Hard to think they were paying more in wages than us at the time, worked out well for them in the long run though...

    No point in losing 1-0 without looking like winning at any time Might as well lose by having a go I'm not one for normally having a go at them, but tonight I feel justified.

    Okay, so I am late to the party with The Cure, have to be honest and confess I had no idea who they were! But someone in my company had this on and I was digging it right up until the guy started singing, however, it grew on me considerably and it's easily the best 50 seconds introduction to a song ever. So much so, I have now cut it and made it my phone ringtone
