Great result, especially being 1-0 down.  

 

Clique Cliché time, but at this stage of the season it's results that matter.  A win at Killie, which is a place we've struggled at in recent years, is a sign of progress from earlier in the season.

 

Another two for Miller, will only create interest although it'll also increase the pricetag  :thumbsup:.  If the lad's got any sense he'll stick with Aberdeen for another season or two at least.  He's been around enough so early in his career, it's no surprise to see him hitting top form now that he's settled into the club as well as living in Aberdeen now.

Just back (sic)

Really enjoyed the match tonight, well worth the √ā¬£20 and the jumped up steward upset we dared to stand for longer than 2s after the goal.

 

First half we were terrible. Zander all over the shop, Mulgrew unable to go forward or seemingly pass a ball to a aberdeen player and mackie and foster clueless on the right.  Killie got a lucky break for their goal after a wicked deflection, but the could have had 2 or 3.  We created little but managed to force a number of corners and Miller scored from one with what looked like a back heel flick after Mulgrew finally worked out how to kick a ball.

 

1-1 at half time certainly flattered us, but we came out guns blazing in the 2nd and for a good 15 mins were pinging the ball around beautifully.  Great 2nd, Miller header from the corner of the 6yrd box after great work by aluko on the right.  After that we could, and probably should have scored more, with aluko guilty of passing up a great chance.

 

Killie then put us under a lot of pressure for the last 15mins but only created a couple of decent chances.  We looked dangerous on the break but had the linesman to contend with.  One move in particular Miller played Aluko in from a position that looked perfectly in line only for the flag to go up.

 

Could well have lost, but managed to hold on in a pretty entertaining game all round.  Aluko and Miller were superb and McDonald and Kerr continue to impress in the middle.  Severin was solid and hopefully doesn't have a bad injury as the rest of our back line, esp zander and foster, were generally woeful.

 

Vital 3pts, above the LSC and about time to get something off the tims at Pittodrie

Just in the hoose ten mins ago.

Called it right at 2-1 for us, but as usual it is never straightforward.

Got a bit of a pasting posession wise in first half, but remarkably according to the killie stats on the electronic board we actaully had more shots on target than them.

First twenty mins of second half we were superb. Big difference with Kerr pushing forward from the middle of the park.

Agree with GS that defensively we looked vulnerable but Killie had nothing much up front.

Ref did his best to spoil a good game and called a number of thing wrong, not least of which by not showing their little Moroccan a 2nd yellow for a blatant dive.

All in a satisfying night......christ knows I've sat through somew howlers over the years down there, and delighted to leave with the three points tonight

Quick reality check:

 

Hearts have Killie at Rugby Park, then Caley at Tynecastle

We have either side of the old firm at a time when our defence is starting to look shaky.

 

Hearts will be 5 points clear of us by the end of the month.

 

Good win tonight though.  :thumbsup:

 

 

Killie will beat Hearts, you heard it here first  :thumbsup:

GS is that really you?? ;) Thats a very positive post, keep it up  :thumbsup:

 

Chuffed with the result, kinda wish I'd gone now, but oh well, gave a good big cheer in the bar I was at  :thumbsup:  It does concern me though that the defence sounded woeful in the first half right before we play the gruesome twosome  :(

 

But a great result ! Lets hope we get something from the Oirish imposters  :thumbsup:

 

:ultras: :ultras:

Stoney, Al, GS and anyone else who was at the game. Who was your man of the match?

 

Prob has to be Miller given his two goals, but very good performances from Aluko, Seve and Mark Kerr particularily in the second half.

In all honesty the football we played in the first 20 mins of the second half was as good as I've seen us this season :thumbsup:
