    Itís just a happy clappers dream about having more points at new year.
    They donít want to hear about any other opinion other than their blinkered view.
    The Scottish cup is our only chance of getting a trophy this season but the excuses coming out already about how often we have won it etc are cringeworthy...we are supposed to be the 2nd top team in Scotland so unless we capitulate again against Celtic along the way I fully expect us to get to the final. If we donít then that is failure.

    Until we get to the europa group stages, I'll be disappointed deep down.

    We should be better than we are and as fans , have far more ambitions.

    This. But I`m already fretting about how that will affect our League position given the "threadbare " squad , and the extra games !!

    In all honesty I donít think we will be worrying about the Europa league group stages

    The last lineup to get beyond the group stages (or indeed even get into the group stages) had Darren Mackie and Langfield in the side vs. Dnipro:

    Not sure that adventurous signings are the answer.

    Totally different scenario in those days as we only had to play one round to reach the group rather than 3 or 4 rounds nowadays.

    Even then, we would have been out if Clangers had not transformed into Zoff for 90 minutes in the away leg.

    Aye Red , but I`m a Happy Clapper Heck . We nearly made it this year despite being " in transition " !!

    Mixed feelings watching the Cypriots do so well. @Usual ifs and buts . But,...( !! ) our team that finished the Scottisg Cup Final would have done it. So ALL we need to do is replace Johnny Hayes now ?!!...........................Easy, eh ?

    That team of misfits masterminded by Calderwood subsequently got out of a group with some big sides in it, e.g. Atletico Madrid. The big difference between the competition then and now being the summer qualifiers, favouring clubs with bigger squads, with more foreign internationals in them.

    I'm still hopeful.

    If you are talking about last season then what about the league cup. We limped out at the second hurdle this year. You don't seem to be mentioning that. You are hellbent on talking up the points situation and not the current

    I will bet you we will end up worse off this season.Since our great start which is a huge factor in being second. Our current form is pointing to it. W have huffed and puffed against sh@te at home. Partick and Ross County we won but we weren't great. We have also been outplayed by Motherwell and lost, beaten by a much better team in sevco at home, drew 0-0 with Hearts who were full of kids. Hibs is the only shining light performance. All that in the last two months. What about away. Hamilton draw(aye but it was the pitches fault),good win v Killie, pumped by sevco, nae great v Dundee, St Johnstone got battered and was a good performance, and schooled by a pedestrian paced celtic who could easily have upped their game but didn't have to. (but I suppose that's acceptable)

    Its totally up and down. Two very good performances since the pigs destroyed us at pittodrie. What happened to the early form

    That form will not sustain second place. Not a chance

    Im not looking forward to St Mirren either. They are probably better than some of the teams in our league. But im sure if they knock us out it will be ok as we have more points than last season

    but got papped out the league cup by lower league opposition Hibs at the first hurdle.............

    then we got knocked out of the Scottish by Farts at the first hurdle

    But i suppose because we had the same points as we do now this season that was also a success. You must have been pulling your hair out at the fact we had less points at new year last season. Talk about abject failure(even though we got to 2 finals)

    Also to be noted in 2015/16 we finished with 71 points despite having more at new year than 16/17 where we finished with 76(which correct me if im wrong is a club record in the 3 point win days). So your points fascination at new year is bizarre

    New year, same old ****e, by same old posters.
    It’ll never change.
    I’ll leave you guys to get your pleasure belittling our club and ignoring anything positive.

    Wish you all the best for the new year and hope the Dons go on to better things

    I don't think we're so much a team in transition as we are a team that is currently less than the sum of its parts. I get the feeling that McInnes signed certain players purely on the basis of reputation without having a particular system in mind. May, GMS and Stewart are very good signings on paper but I still don't think DM has a clear idea how they all fit together. McGinn will hopefully bring more balance to our attack.
