  1. BBC article here, although missing some of the info in the EE piece. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-55766510 The suggestion was that the hotel would be knocked down and that the council would consider relocating businesses to other locations, such as the extreme sports building. Photo (hopefully attached) of where the EE think it will be.
  2. I think the debate over a city centre v Kingsford location has been done to death, and I'm sure most of us if given the choice would prefer to stay put. But the club - rightly or wrongly - have always looked at it from a business perspective. They say having two separate sites adds 100s of hundreds a year into the cost, if they have to buy the land that adds more, I'm guessing no feasibility study has been done to determine if the location even works. The club are already struggling to raise £50m for Kingsford - I think they'll need a lot of convincing to consider another location. I
  3. Unless the land is being offered up for free I don't see what's in it for Aberdeen. Already have planning permission at Kingsford and building at beach will be no cheaper than there. It's Labour, they have a history of making of cooking up plans that look good on paper but delivering nothing.
  4. Nah I think we're past that now. He beat Rangers three times in Glasgow in the 2018-19 season and it didn't stop the increasing number of fans wanting him out. Once you've lost the support, you've lost them. I don't even think making the Scottish Cup final would save him. I think you would just find many fans saying it's the best way for him to leave having won the cup.
  5. I don't think the Hernandez signing has had much influence over the ability to sign others. Especially when months prior to that McInnes had the chance to sign strikers but instead opted for Curtis Main. Since finishing below Kilmarnock (a poor season where the decline was evident) he has had three transfer windows, and in Scottish terms has been handsomely backed. Summer 2019: Ash Taylor, Curtis Main, Craig Bryson, Ryan Hedges, James Wilson, Funso Ojo. (Loans: Greg Leigh, Zac Vyner, Jon Gallagher). January 2020: Dylan McGeouch, Matty Kennedy, Ronald Hernandez Summer 2020:
  6. I said at the start of the season I felt this would probably be his last season in charge, and felt he probably would leave in summer. I think we're at the stage now where that has to happen. And that's the first time I've ever called for him to go. Finishing fourth behind Kilmarnock was poor, but the three wins in Glasgow over Rangers papered over the cracks. We were poor last season and he went and spent big in January, and had another big transfer window in summer, and yet he still hasn't turned it around. I'd let him see out the season because the next appointment has to be
  7. I'm not too sure about an Atlantic League, but would love to see some sort of Atlantic Cup in place. Either straight knockout or two-legged affair with the Scandinavian & Irish teams. A cup final jaunt to Gothenburg anyone?
  8. But then you essentially get punished for being successful. Can just imagine us winning the cup and getting beat in the EL qualifiers, only for the side who finished fourth getting European football until Christmas because they had easier opponents. Think the new European competition will be great for clubs like Aberdeen. One that qualifies for the EL qualifiers each season but struggle to make much headway. I've argued for years though there shouldn't be qualifiers. Make it a group stage from the off. Inverness qualified for Europe for the first time in their history after winning
  9. Third/Scottish cup winners this season go straight into the Europa League playoff round (unless something mental happens like the winners of the champions league don't qualify for Europe or something). Win and we're into the EL group stages. Lose and we're into the Conference League group stages. So third/winning the cup is massive this season.
  10. I don't know a huge amount about Sporting, but how many of those missing players would have started tonight? Aberdeen had eight players missing earlier in the season who had to isolate and couldn't train. They came back and won six games in a row. Sporting were weakened, but they were still huge favourites tonight. The players who played tonight have been training. They've also played pre-season friendlies - beating a Spanish La Liga side (granted that was with their full squad). Do people actually take rocket seriously? We put on Scott Wright, but attackin
  11. Harsh to suggest we were too defensive or didn't have a go. We saw plenty of the ball in their final third, the decision making was poor on almost every occasion. Considering we had Kennedy, Devlin and Cosgrove missing - the line-up was pretty much what we will likely have at Ross County on Sunday. The only key decision was dropping Wright for a more defensive minded player in McGeouch. But I can totally understand the reasoning for that. We were going into the unknown, didn't have a clue what their line-up would be, hadn't been able to watch them, were away from home against a huge name
  12. A lot of good performances. As has been pointed out it was made a bit easy for them. But, was good to see two fringe players Dylan McGeouch and Scott Wright both stand out. McGeouch playing just ahead of the three-man defence dictated everything. Quite often we're slow and ponderous when trying to play out from the back but he was good at constantly keeping the ball moving, switching the ball from side to side, picking out Hayes and Kennedy out wide, and also coming forward with the ball too and trying to pick holes through the channels. Likewise, Wright was good at coming deep and l
  13. Don't think he was fit enough. He was only on the bench at the last minute last week. May have only been earmarked for 45 minutes tonight anyway.
  14. McGinn a doubt Bryson injured Ojo suspended Considine & McKenna back.
