League Cup QF v Helen Mirrren


Recommended Posts

Massive game on Tue. Might be inclined to freshen things up a bit and start with Hayes but not sure who I would leave out. The obvious answer is Clark but when we went to two in the middle on sat we lost out a bit to Dundee. Vernon needs to get in on the goals as looks short if confidence but as the Dunfermline game showed we are a poorer team with out him.

 

Got to keep the momentum going and surely just by the law of averages if we get through we are due a semi final win.

Agree GS, I think we need to keep some consistency. Hayes deserves a starting spot after his goal, and by the sounds of it played really well when he came on yesterday. Clark sounded like he was pretty anonymous in the first half so would probably be the one to drop.

Yeah, Hayes deserves a start, he's been unlucky to have McGinn and Fraser playing so well in his position. I'd like to see us play the formation we had when Hayes came on, the othodox 4-4-2 with Hayes and Fraser out wide and McGinn up with Vernon. Although could see some changes, Naysmith, Milsom might come in and likes of Fraser might get rested. Would like to see Smith get a longer run out too, or even McManus

Aberdeen have played St Mirren 15 times in the league cup, but only once in a QF, in 1989 when we won 3-1 thanks to goals from Mason, Bett and an own goal.

In the 8 games played at Pittodrie we have yet to lose, with 6 wins and 2 draws.

The biggest League Cup game against St Mirren came in 1955 when the Dons won the League Cup 2-1 at Hamdpen in front of 44,000 fans:

Going to miss this one on account of needing to pay money to get in and having other things to do.

 

I thought Clark was largely pretty good on Saturday so I'd stick with the same team again if possible. Chances of some youngsters getting in aboot the first team probably not great? Would like to see McManus get a game.

This is now no longer the case. In. No longer going to the County game.

Out, first League Cup game I've missed this season

Got to head off south early doors on Wed morning, so just no time I'm afraid.

Hoping for comfortable victory (although any victory will do given what is at stake)

We simply must beat the semi final jinx sometime

 

Here's hoping it is this year :thumbsup:

Oft!

 

Reckon I'd take a win over Helen and a draw in Dingwall if I had to choose.

 

If I had to choose, I'd pick 2 wins  :thumbsup:

 

They are now usually the played last weekend in January with one on TV. I think they were changed from midweeks games to try and increase attendances.

 

26th/27th January next year.

 

I'm gonna miss both.

 

FUCK!

Aberdeen have reached the QF stage of the League Cup 32 times, winning through 21 times and getting knocked out 11 times. 

Our last QF was in 2010 and saw us beat Falkirk 2-1 in front of less than 7000 fans at Pittodrie thanks to a last minute winner from Hartley.

The full record includes two legged QFs, replays and second replays and reads:
