    This is definitely the best one, Donstalk is virtually dead and the hat is full of zoomers. Although some of their classic threads are hilarious.

    Things have been going pretty well on the park. Forums thrive on complaining. This place was jumping in the good ol' McGhee era

    I agree, finishing ahead of SevCo who reportedly spent about 15 times what we did in the summer, following our transition losing Hayes, McGinn and Jack from the midfield, actually means we had a fantastic season (in the league).

    But a pretty disgraceful one in the cups

    The only realistic target for silverware. But second is a bigger prize to many

    Walter_Sobchak. What a man
    Totally agree - I lurked for a while and signed up in 2010. Though I was never a prolific poster, the footy and especially the off topic forum were absolutely brilliant then.

    Your band / album world cups etc were always good Termie min.

    Though Walters eloquent and detailed analysis of what he was going to do to each fine young (or not so young) filly on WYOWYN was definitely the highlight - I used to log in just to see what descriptive gems he would grace us with each day - absolutely hilarious 😂

    Such a shame they were lost from classic threads - finer works of online literature you’d be hard pressed to find 😂

    PAC min, let it go, Motherwell felt our @rse twice and got to both finals, fair do’s, however it is a discredit to the players and most importantly the fans to say we were disgraceful......we are what we are......the 2nd best team in the country on a spending level of Hibs/Hertz and totally outwith the ugly sisters.

    Theres the issue. Since winning the league cup (with a favourable draw but a cups a cup and goes in the trophy cabinet)

    Bottled St Johnstone at Ibrox "let it go" (was talking about not seeing a double for a long time in the Alex Smith thread, prime chance)
    Bottled Dundee Utd semi "let it go"
    Bottled Dundee at Dens at first hurdle "let it go"
    Beat by second tier Hibs at first hurdle "let it go"
    Beat by a poor newly promoted Hearts at first hurdle"let it go"
    F@cking disgrace v Celtic "let it go"
    Did nae bad v Celtic in the final. Folk harp on about it and its brought up in defence of McInnes. Benchmarked for some McInnesites
    Bottled Motherwell at first hurdle this season this season "let it go"
    F@cking disgrace v Motherwell "let it go"

    We can only realistically win cups. A very poor pigs drawing and 7 times and losing once at home and still coasting the league last season is proof to that. We are more than capable of a cup but they seem to be our managers kryptonite.So how long does second is better than a trophy and shut up about the cups mentality go on for. I'm f@cking sick of it. Coming second to a team we have a miniscule to f@ck all chance of catching is not bad and credit wheres its due but its not the be all and f@cking end all. Its accepting failure

    Folk are having a go at Alex Smith on his thread. He bottled one huge game and that cant be denied but that list above is f@cking atrocious. We could have and should have had 3 finals at very least if we had the correct mentality installed

    So no I wont let it go and I'm sure this subject will rear its head again

    You genuinely need to chill loon, TFI and AC aren’t playing tomorrow which gives me scope to cheer on Hive and I’ve f@cking let go a long time ago....still passionate as ever though in a realistic manner.

    LC.....well gubbed, not before beating Hamilton away.
    SC......well gubbed(a puckle of players missing)not before beating ST Mirren, Dundee United and Kilmarnock(eventually).

    Totally transparent that yourself and good chum do not rate our current coach.....schoolground nicknames are the giveaway, however, let it go, cognitive therapy might help....maybe not, regardless, I’ll buy you pint tomorrow when I visit Norman at Dyce who host the final if you pitch up.

    Fair enough Motherwell was second hurdle, shoot me

    Even with a weak squad we should not be getting our asses well and truly handed to us by a poor Motherwell in a semi. Especially as the second best team in the country

    I don't hide the fact I don't like him and since I lost all respect I have not tried to hide it. I have credited him when due. Hibs at home and Celtic away being two that stick out. At least I am consistent with my dislike for him

    I will be pitching up tomorrow actually. Tri-generation affair too as my old boy fancies it. Hope the weather is like this

    No its not.
    how many times do we have to go over it?
    The league cup defeat was disgraceful. Louis Moult was the big difference that game, add in a not so convincing game from Lewis in goals.
    The Scottish cup I half expected, not because Motherwell are a better team than us, but because our squad was extremely stretched. Losing your Captain (main driver of the team), your main playmaker and creativity player, a defender who had played in every game of the season and two wingers who were doubtful in the week to make the squad, let alone the team. We started well in that game and a calamity of defensive errors costs us badly.

    Nice of you to mention that we were the only domestic team to beat Celtic at their home since Rogers took over.
    No other fxucker managed it.
    Surprised you noticed it with your whitewash fixation.
    But also don't understand why your interested in the league, 2nd means nothing and you said we have no chance of winning the league.
    Maybe your thoughts are we should put all into the cups and disregard the league.
    Did you love the Ebbe season when we were bottom and got to both cup finals?

    Yet we were in 2 finals the year before.
    So have been in 50% of the finals in the last two years.

    I would love to win it all, we should want to win every game we play in, but in football, that's unlikely to happen.
    There will be games we lose and draw in.
    Success is winning as much games as you can and hopefully that contrives to bringing in silverware now and again.

    Nae doubt.
    Maybe the club should run a sweeper as to when you'll move on.
    the club could make a fortune although take a long time to realise the raised funds

    Good that you are going, due to the choo choo situation we have changed plans, we will be there though and having banter with both coaches accordingly, as per.

    Fingers crossed for the Hive against the “foo muchers” 👍

    “hurdles”......the only one I’m worried about is the last one at M/R today in the 2:50......need to fund the weekend and all that🤞

    1- it is the issue as second is clearly more important to many

    2-League cup was a bottle job. Even the reliable Lewis was at it

    3-The Scottish cup was absolutely unacceptable on every level and to use players missing as an excuse is nae right. Motherwell are ****e and we should be able to beat them with half a team

    4- I was the first person to mention the last time the pigs were beat at home and the date and team on the match thread and then followed up by crediting the team and the manager.

    5-The Ebbe comparison is another one of your stupid things to post as I'm not saying that I would want to come bottom as we are well past those days. We have a good team that is more than capable of winning a cup as our league position shows. We have had a capable team for a long time. We didn't take advantage of the Ronnie the Roaster days. Prime opportunity. Even Lennon wasn't too keen on Cups.But we fluff our lines continuously in these games. (along with a hell of a lot of bigger games in the league).

    6- good maths but what about all the other f@ck ups in cups in his tenure. Also that LC final v the pigs was one of the worst experiences of my Dons days. Beat before a ball was kicked and ragdolled all game. A f@cking disgrace. But I suppose we were second in that tournament so it cool. Second is where its at

    7-I don't think we will win a cup under McInnes and he will be to blame. So aye this will be brought up again. I'm not going to sit back and accept second when there is a huge potential on the park. Not a f@cking hope. With a bit more balls in certain games I'm more than sure we would have won another trophy at least. the old saying "heid first" should be our mentality and should be painted on the walls of the Pittodrie hallways so the players are ingrained with it

    Thankfully I saw the “Big Picture” and the last hurdle was navigated as I hoped......fair night last night after watching Woodside/Cove and another fair day today is on the agenda cheering on the Hive.... thank you very much BetFred.
