    After the last eight games the Dons have played = eight wins and eight clean sheets, four points above Celtic in the league although Celtic have two games in hand after taking a winter break to play in a pointless tournament and coming home with injuries to two of their most influential players.

    What say thee.?

    During the last 100 years Celtic have never won a league title in a year ending in 5.

    Also they are sh*te this season :grin:

    Aberdeen have won the league in each of the years "Back To The Future" was set, 1955 -1985 - (2015)?

    It's an omen i tells ye.

    Have the referees and assistants been issued with new rules this season, to ignore off-side
    when Aberdeen are behind late in game.
    The run of clean sheets got slightly soiled by the concession of three on Saturday.
    Could be worse only one visit to the laundry.

    Minor hiccup, will only spur us on for the next run of wins.

    Minor hiccup is one way of putting it, another way is that Aberdeen have nearly reached
    their season points quota. So its normal results from now on.

    Just because we lost to a better Dundee United side on the day doesn't mean our season will peter out, means Celtic will have to be more on their toes now as Aberdeen have nothing else to play for.

    Not really one for blaming referees but some of the decisions made from that useless (unt Steven Mclean today were terrible, especially Rooneys perfectly good disallowed goal and Ciftis winner which looked offside to me. All in all Dundee United were the better team and deserved to go through to the final where i hope they lose (hate the pikey phucken jutes) to either Celtic or dare i say it The Rangers

    One good thing to come out of todays game was the new loan signing Donervon Danials who scored Aberdeens goal and had another cleared off the line moments later looks to be another quality signing by Derek McInnes.

    Onwards and upwards COYR.

    I am sorry for you as you need to go upwards very soon. two league draws and a cup
    defeat all in a row makes pity disturbing reading. I have no dislike of Aberdeen and it
    would be nice to have a challenger, but i doubt it.

    I am afraid no dons fans have appeared on here since Sunday, now I am aware it is a long way to have to walk
    home from Glasgow (how far do the roads actually go ) and with the lambing season in full swing, sure nobody from
    that part of the Country could get away from the sheep for a month or so. Is that the reason for no communique from
    the sheep land?

    Have you never followed your team up to Aberdeen?

    I have said on a few other threads that i think Celtic will win the league at a canter and will more than likely win the treble. To be as close to Celtic as we are considering Celtic were going to have the league sown up by Xmas is a huge achievement by a diddy team.

    Nice result tonight against St Johnston btw. sheepy.gif
