Lots of long balls, crosses into the box and dangerous corners.

Simple stuff that we need to learn how to cope with...

Didn't expect a game with 2 managers who play non-football to be particularly entertaining did you?

Stonewall that the sheep will win with a header off a corner or a free kick.

When i saw this was tonight, i thought, low scoring bore, probably 1-0, more than likely to Aberdeen

SSB's still don't get much value for money with regards goals at home, despite the improvement this season!

Just my opinion but I don't think we need to learn to cope with anything.

The first team are less than six months into a completely new style of play. To call it a work in progress doesn't even do it justice. As a project, it's barely begun.

Whether anyone likes it or not, this is the way football is going. In a couple of years United are going to be well down the road of playing quick, dynamic, passing football. So much further on than at present. Where will teams like Aberdeen and Hibs be? Better at closing teams down and playing 'effective' football? It will no longer be enough. Just like when Scottish teams play anyone semi decent in Europe, that style of play will be shown up for what it is - an outdated relic from a bygone age.

Long may McInnes, Butcher and co have 'success' playing that way.

Exactly it's a result business silky fitba is braw when you're winning games but we've not been recently and no playing silky fitba either. Will settle for a couple of boring 1-0 victories in our next two games. Get our confidence back then the silky fitba can return. :-)

The sheep can mix it a bit and are more than a decent side. :blue:

You and me both. Long way to go though.

Check the match thread on their board. We played pish...dreadful performance again...but a win's a win.

Of course they're going to be happy with that. Let them. It's short termism.

At the back is their strength, Reynolds pace and experience like Anderson, attacking certainly isn't their strong point, especially at home when they have to break down teams

Are you really gutted though? home win, draw or away win, none were a great or bad result for us

After seeing Hibs the other day i expected a narrow home win tonight, the annoying thing is if we had turned up against them from the start we'd have beat them comfortably

As for our game with ICT i reckon it'll be a draw

Listened to most of the match on the radio at work and the commentator was struggling to make it sound exciting,both teams should have had a penalty and Clangers should have been sent off apparently.

I will say one thing about McInnes,after the defeat at Celtic Park with the 2 very late goals he said they had to learn to play right to the end of the game and they have certainly done that recently with lots of late goals to win their matches.

United look very good going forward and do play 'the right way'. However, I think it's a bit unfair to say Aberdeen play a long ball game. We probably have the best passer of the ball in the league with Ryan Jack and he is complimented by Flood, Robson, Hayes and Pawlett. Decent midfield for Scottish fitba. Our strengths are in defence and midfield, whilst yours is definitely attack. If anything we are not direct enough.
Hibs are garbage and ruined the game last night. If you can hold on to your players United will be a force next season. Don't think Robertson will be there for long though: best full back in the league IMO.

The LUCK of the devil!
What was it, less thaqn 2 minutes gone & Clangers clanged.
Now, and this may seem paranoiac but ain't, had that been us (it wouldn't tho cos we would have defended it better) we would have been a golaie sent off & 0-1 at home in the 2nd min.
Did you see Clangers when he got up from the inciident, waving the yellow card for Heifer diving cos he knew he'd phukd up, he felt as guilty as phuk. It was a stonewall penalty!!!

So Aberdeen win 1-0 with an 87th min goal. OK there was the inevitable ball-to-hand-hand-to-ball crap at the other end but Aberdeen would have been playing with 10 men for 88 mins.

Now I'm a great believer in the Bounce of the Ball, aka Lady Luck, & at the end of the season you'll have had your fair share of good & bad luck. But as of 11-Jan-14 we must have about 90% luck coming our way.

P.S. Great post # 9 by Trap Six btw. Like.

I've often said to leave football finances to the board room but I hae ti question where Aberdeen have found the money for this team. Most are very experienced players who were down south, or at least linked with moves, flood apparently left us for around 1k more pw (rumoured), Robson would still command afew grand, mcginns new deal won't have been cheap, the list goes on.

Hope the board up there aren't trying to buy a way into Europe to try pay off debt and fund this team, risky business, particularly if your a Scottish club. Seem to remember the Aberdeen board coming out a few months ago to say it was all fine and the debt payment was sorted but in saying that apparently everything was fine with Rangers up until the day they went in to administration if you believed their board.

Any hoo ah that matters is there above us, plenty fitba left to be played though. A wee bit of form and the table will always change quickly in the premiership this year.

So this is your latest excuse for Aberdeen's fine form.

Were you saying the same when Eddie Thompson kindly splashed the family to win the Scottish Cup against a first division side-? No, didn't think so chum.

Just accept that Aberdeen's wages to turnover ratio is circa 60% as per the recommends iron and we can all move on from your misguided rationale min ;D

We are a bigger club, so naturally it's all proportional.

Aye.

What in phucks are you gibbering about? :? What money did Thompson "splash" to win the Scottish cup? What a daft jealous knob you are.
