McInnes proves point with second win over Celtic

789

The clean sheet record had to go eventually, so I’m pleased it went to a good goal, not an error by Fraser, which would have been harsh on the big keeper.  Having already recorded Celtic’s, then Scotland’s league clean sheet record, the British and European records were within touching distance, but that is now a matter for next season.

Months ago, when Virgil van Dijk first suggested we could go through the league season without defeat I said we were not nearly consistent enough to achieve this.  Ironically, last night’s defeat came after a sustained period of consistent an authoritative performances, in the league.

Aberdeen will have lots of reasons to wonder where there team might go now, having beaten Celtic twice in a month.  Amid all the newspaper talk in 2012 that Celtic needed their soon to be liquidated opponent, a few of us suggested that what Celtic really need is an opponent, and that Aberdeen, playing to a captive audience in a wealthy city, were the most likely candidates.

Manager, Derek McInnes, knows he does not have the resources to compete over a league programme, but he has proven a few points:  he knows how to beat Celtic and his team are the best of the rest.

If Aberdeen can cope with the vagaries of trips to Easter Road and Victoria Park next season, four games against Celtic will take care of themselves.  Let’s hope Newco Rangers don’t nip in and buy their best players with that non-emergency £1.5m loan.

The immediate challenge for Celtic is to get back into winning form on Saturday.  League Cup finalists, Inverness, will come to make up the numbers.

    All this talk of Lord Tyre has reminded me……….

     

     

    Lord Tyre and me have previous. When I lived in Washington I kept up to speed with events back home through Twitter. I came across the judge on there when he would post photos of his famous ‘mullet’ haircut. He thought it was the greatest haircut in the world, a very vein man is Lord Tyre. Anyway he assumed himself to be the King of the Mullets. So I would taunt him mercilessly about it on Twitter till he blocked me…………

     

     

    Oh Mullet King Tyre, I miss trolling him from D.C.

    You.

  8. Surely all you No guys must be severely embarrassed about Johann Lamont’s comment last night:

     

    “We’re not genetically programmed in Scotland to make political decisions”

     

     

    We’re too wee, too stupid and now not genetically programmed to make political decisions, what an utter ass of a politician.

     

     

    So our unbeaten record has gone, disappointing but not unsurprising. Now Lenny is the time to start experimenting with line ups to do better in the CL than we did last year. Biton must be given an extended run and Leigh too.

  10. Missed the game last night due to great gig at the barrowlands.

     

     

    Was VVD red card correct decision or does NL have a point to complain?

     

     

    How did the buoys play?

    You have inferred that a No voter = a Labour Party supporter. An error of logic.

  19. sixtaeseven - Gardez la Foi, DAM 5 ! on

    Has anybody elsseen the new Scotland away strip?

     

     

    Dear, dear, dear – who sanctioned that?

  20. Afternoon, thoughts on the game, after avoiding the score to watch on Alba !!

     

     

    at first look I thought it was a red card, given Thomsons being the ref never getting any benefit on 50/50 calls.

     

     

    for the goals , after defending well just before HTwe were starting to get too deep and allowed Aberdeen to have a pot shot and a cross into a dangerous area 2-0 down when we needed to keep our shape and push further up the park to make HT

     

     

    2nd half we deserved to get a 2nd goal , again i have seen penalties given for the hand ball again 50/50 not going our way.

     

     

    one of those nights were we didn’t get the close decisions , !! some say we never do

     

     

    So we move on and try to win our remaining games and wish Aberdeen every success in the cups. A ensure we beat them next time

  21. I thought we played reasonably well last night , losing vvd , although I thought it was the correct decision was a blow to us . Mcinnes and his team will mount a challenge but against ten men they didn’t get things all there own way . Mcinnes will end up at snake mountain , and I thought the lad pawlet was thems material too , he goes down faster than a Saturday coupon . We battled hard , the record is gone ,the league is our and that’s the big one . But one thing that did bother me was the hand ball , that would have been a penalty for any other team . This needs challenged ,because we all know what’s ahead for us when there back
