Definitely need a result here. Livi are only 4 points off and have a game at County which I expect them to win. With well playing celtic, you'd expect the tims to get a result too.

 

I really hope may doesn't continue his scoring form from the weekend. Be interesting to see what hernandez's involvement will be. Surely must be a starter if the fee being touted is true.

 

Good luck to those going, can see this being the typical shit fest against them. The agricultural Derby.

 

Out

Bed

Might watch this if I'm up

Day off

2-1 dons, McGinn and Ferguson.

Hoping we can carry even more of a threat than we did on Saturday, because we carried a threat, but given we will see more of the ball, I am hoping we maintain the same intensity and show more guile.

 

This comment from the BBC pretty much epitomizes what I hope from to see from us on a weekly basis!

 

Aberdeen were all tigerish intent in Saturday's Ibrox battle, snapping into tackles and defending as if their lives depended on it. If they had left with all three points, it wouldn't have been an injustice. That level of performance, though, is required more consistently and not just against the league's heavyweights.

 

As we have all said time and again, we have the Players to be performing much better than we have been, we need to see it week in, week out though. All that slight ease of pressure will only come back with an inept showing against St Johnstone.

 

I remain hopeful that we will brush them aside, and finally get back in among the goals.

 

 

Aberdeen 3 vs 0 St Johnstone ( Cosgrove x 2, Hedges )

Really think we need to drop one of 3 in middle to allow us the extra attacking option we will need to break down a St Johnstone side who will sit in deep. They have managed two 1-1 draws with this approach so far against us. Would agree with team suggested by Elgin other than dropping Logan who played well on Saturday plus I wonder how fit Hernandez will be considering he was only half way through preseason in Norway.

1-0 Kennedy.

The question is, which of the three to drop? McGeouch hasn't been any better than Ojo in recent games, but I think he is probably the better player, so I'd retain him.

 

The issue is that McInnes probably doesn't know which one, and so will keep them both in the team until one makes sufficient errors.

 

Also, we're good enough to beat St J with three holding midfielders, but it's just that it will be incredibly boring to watch. The worst situation will be playing all 3 but still winning in a stuffy 1-0 game. McInnes will feel empowered to continue with the 3 because of points won.

Definitely a game we don’t need three holding mids but has the manager got the stones to bench one. Gallagher has an impact against the huns when he came on but I’d really like to see mcginn or hedges in there.

 

Lewis

Hernandez Devlin McKenna Considine

Ferguson mcgeouch

Kennedy mcginn hedges

Frank mcdougall

 

 

Please. Sad that we are back to Considine at left back.

Not a hope in hell Devlin will displace Taylor from tonight's starting line-up, unless you are aware of an injury to Taylor that I have overlooked. Big Gash has been consistently good since getting into the team and was one of our best performers against sevco.

 

Where there might be a change in defence is Hernandez starting at right back and Logan replacing Consi at left back if we go with a 4 man defence. However I think we will go with a 3 man defence to allow a more attacking set up, with Hernandez being utilised as a wing back.

 

Lewis

Taylor McKenna Considine

Hernandez Ojo Ferguson McGeouch McGinn

Kennedy Considine

 

Wouldn't be at all surprised to see Kennedy score against his old club and May returning the favour

 

3-1 (Cosgrove, Kennedy, McKenna)

I know Considine is capable of covering a couple of Positions, but I am not so sure Striker is one of them  :thumbsup:

I don't think he would ever drop Ferguson, no matter how bad he plays. Ojo and McGeouch will make way if he was to drop one, but I look forward to being surpsied.

Interesting line up, pretty happy with it but obviously I’d prefer mcginn over Gallagher. Still, not complaining!

Well it is performing. Unfortunately shittily. St Johnstone by far the more dangerous side up till now and well worth their lead. Taylor off injured, Devlin on.

 

Get this sorted Mcinnes

St. Johnstone the only team playing any football and fully deserving of their lead. Can see Hernandez has some skill about him, not sure about the rest of his team mates though...

Same shit different day. Sideways, backwards, and long ball. Nothing creative and (I've only been watching 20 minutes) I haven't seen us create a chance or a shot on goal. Not even seen play in their penalty box.

McGinn on for Gallagher which is correct decision. Very poor first half.

Just done some research.  Fourteen points from our last thirty six available.  Just ten goals in those twelve games.  What is there to look forward to??

Fair enough. I will add, very disappointed in McGinn Hedges and Kennedy today. We had 3 creative players together on the field for 45 mins and little was created. I really don't see Kennedy bringing much different to Wilson or McLennan so far. Cosgrove was piss too which isn't abnormal. Something is seriously wrong.

 

The draw with Rangers was 'easy' since nothing was really expected and we were happy to simply defend. But today's another game where it's clear we are hopeless in attack.

I'm curious to know our record since we went with Cosgrove as our permanent starter in attack. That's when we committed to the shite predictable long ball garbage when our ball playing/passing style was better than most. While Cosgrove has scored, how has it impacted our play and the team record??

No goals in 4 games and no goals from open play in 6. Failure to address the lack of creation in the middle of the park in the January window was criminal.
