How many people thought as the game progressed 'I've seen this movie before'

Agreed, no question we were playing nice football, but the same old story of not being clinical Or making the most of opportunities in final third

I was glad they got the red card at that point as knew that was game over, As I could see it getting nervy them launching things into box in injury time If they’d thrown centre half upfront, McInnes made wrong choice of lone striker as the boy from Leeds put himself about , gave them more of focal point

Still, 3 points , job done , on we go

Yes, thought it was following a familiar path. Great start, little impact on the score, fading throughout.
Pretty much last seasons team with one addition.
Need some new spark in the team do take us to a new level.
Delighted we won...and lets go on on a run.

From kick off first half it was 15mins before they had anything of note in our half.Aberdeen will not be a fixture we will be looking to for taking something off the Scum and hasn’t been for a while,on a positive note only one more league visit up there left.

Three points is the main thing, but the fact the gaffer and Kent both said afterwards about avoiding a repeat of what happened there last season I guess that explains the caution.

Nobody can have watched that without feeling a sense of deja vu and a bit of dread about what lies ahead though.

Aberdeen were awful, as they normally are, imagine having a season ticket to watch that.

One nil is a precarious lead in any game, with our recent history up there, it was doubly so.

It was a lot nervier than it should have been.

But it is three points, I just wish they would think of the traumas they put us through.

Onwards and upwards
I had that thought for sure, but it wasn’t the same as before. Never saw aberdeen scoring today.

While I thought we were comfortable.We really should be killing shite like this off.Make the game even more comfortable bring players on to give them game time.While we didn’t look in any bother today one slip and they are back in it.First game and a victory so onward and upwards.

Don’t know why we would expect anything different ... same personnel... same problems

that said I’m delighted with Balogun ... and hope we get a couple in the door that have a winning mentality to straight into the team

I was nervous the whole second half, probably more than it merited but we have been stung so many times in the past up there.

That said, a 1-0 lead away from home is nervy for any team when the oppositions only chance of scoring is a set piece, we are no exception.

Serious question, I never watch the tims but when they are at Pittodrie do Aberdeen play a back line of 5 with a line of 4 in front of them all 30 yards from their own goal line?
In the first half that was disgraceful sight to watch.
As we have not conceded so far in pre season i was convinced we would the longer the game went.
That seemed a very long second half.
Glad its out the way with 3 points.

Me.
We saw the two Rangers today . First half high press high tempo Rangers. Second half ’sit off them Rangers ‘. Seems bloody obvious to me in which half we were more likely to piss away a goal. Luckily it didn’t happen. I suppose with little personnel changes this was always possible. Hope we strengthen and hope we learn from this. Delighted at the theee points but on another day.....

Not going to lie

I was nervous from about 75 minutes on......when Kamara was chasing their boy band winger I thought wouldn't it be just like us/him to leave a trailing leg at the edge of the box and give away a penalty.....

Should Rangers have had a penalty in the second half?

Let’s be honest it was the same movie only this time we never conceded. Play like we did in the second half in other games it will come back to haunt us.

I didn’t see it, listened on radio and last 20 certainly felt like we’d been their before. Wish we could have put them away in the first half hour, those that saw it might say different but it sounded (even Willie Miller) like we should have had the game done by then.

Unless we can get a 2 goal lead theres little doubt that we are going to watch this scenario most of the season, in complete control however always just a slip away from dropping points.
it's the scenario from the last 2 seasons
