  1. I missed the last 20 minutes but at least for the first 70, I think Kent was a fair way ahead of anyone yesterday and that second assist was special. A timely return to form.
  2. Good comparison ! McInnes was a popular player at WBA and his name comes up everytime the Baggies have a vacancy.
  3. I'd imagine some on here may look suspiciously on fellow Brexiteers, if they like the wrong kind of cheese 😄
  4. That is standard and a given. Do they play with full backs or wing backs ?
  5. For Brexiteers, wasn't it Johnson who did the blinking ? ps. the term Brexiteer sounds a bit French !!
  6. Must be time for McInnes, surely !
  7. I hope we lose the habit of giving the opposition a clear and early site of our goal. It's happened in the last few games and we won't keep getting away with it. I reckon Aberdeen will start out of the traps by pressing us higher up the pitch than usual and look to make hay from what they hope is another sluggish start by us.
  8. There are many different things you can take or ways to read into this ban, beyond simply breaking rules and being banned. An extraordinary event in Washington and you can choose to look at it in isolation. In that case, Trump lost an election, doesn't fully accept it, refuses to go quietly and encourages base to act. Base do what they did and it provided images that you'd usually see in Central Africa. It shocked the USA and the world. You can also look at why things have reached this point. Why Trump's base are politically active to the point of being up for what they did. To cut to the chase They really want what they were promised 4 years ago (Drain the Swamp) Democray isn't working for them and doesn't represent them as per what it says on tin. They still believe in Trump and can't see that he had no intention of draining swamp. They prefer to believe that he wasn't allowed to, but here is the thing, in the case that he does try they'd be right. However he had no real intention to do so. Like Obama with Change, it was an election slogan, no more. US Democracy is broken because the two parties are in bed with broadly the same interests who have bought and paid for it. The general narrative that will be peddled is from a simplistic view formed from the isolated event and not the deeper more fundamental reasons. Locking up the rioters of last week won't solve things, nor will time, as Trump leaves Office. The underlying issues will return and I think the real economic hardship coming down the road is what will trigger them. As Forlan said, the fire has been lit and is still burning. I'dd add, the sparks had been increasing for many years now. That doesn't mean they will be able to revolt successfully. It is far more likely that a militaristic and dystopian reallity will dominate. The infrastructure for such counter measures is increasing. After the Great Depression in the 30's, very generally, the elites had to give back to the masses. Now, the elites feel as though technology and various circumstances allow them to keep taking. US Democracy in it's current corrupted state is under attack and the people on both sides of political divides have good reason to be unhappy with it. If they could see the bigger picture and if not come together, at least direct their cumulative protests towards the only place that will significantly change their lot. For the Left, forget political correctness and look at the political system. For the Right, forget Trumptown like politics and look at the political system.
  9. It's their biggest rivalry although for banter value, it'd be good to see Cove Rangers put them out of a Cup. I think it's fairly obvious that they do more than register as a rival to us and have done for decades, including the 80's prior to the Simpson tackle. -------------------- Aberdeen have seemed to be very mediocre in the League this season but other than their 2 defeats to us, they have only lost ONE game out of the other 18. Outwith the OF, McInnes has again got them to a level that is significantly better than the rest, with Hibs the only other team in remotely the same postcode. Very consistent but in a very grey tone. In other words, today is a significant hurdle to get over. More especially with the players we have missing. Last week was a pivotal win. Today is about starting the downhill side the right way, in one of our most difficult league fixtures. -------------------- By my calculations... - Morelos is one booking away from a suspension. If booked today, he would miss the Hibs (A) game. Could be significant if Roofe isn't back by then. - Re. Hibs (A) Hibs have 3 players one booking away from suspension. Their best piayer at Ibrox the other week, Newell and their 2 recent Scottiish caps, Hanlon and McGinn. If booked against Celtic, they´ll miss game against us. Had their game not been moved to Monday, I reckon they may have missed a different game (if booked v Celtic). - Rangers have scored the same amount of League goals as Aberdeen and Hibs combined (57). - Aberdeen have conceded the same amout of league goals to us in 2 games, as we have to all teams in 22.
  10. Liked and respected Old Bob, intelligent, informative and played with a straight bat.
