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

Think its the commentators curse as well. Crocker going on about 1-0 being nervy and that Aberdeen could come back in it at any time. That would normally jinx us but not today.

Like last season you find yourself shouting at the telly “change it” around the 70 minute mark......

the front three aren’t closing the ball down quickly enough (this is my biggest bugbear with SG) as it allows them to get the ball wide and crosses into the box (every game at Rugby Park since he’s been manager)

All last seasons issues are still under the bonnet imo - who comes in if Borna’s injured, if we are pressed high we don’t have a formation or the personnel to counter it.

We need a mobile/aggressive forward to take some of the load from Alfie .... from 70nins on he and Hagi were offering nothing.

That said, His decision to play Alfie deeper today was a great call, too many times against Aberdeen he gets pushed up tight to their big central defenders and he gets lost in the game

Since Warburton was our manager we’ve played nice football but at times we look toothless. Can’t help but feel the way we set up has to change, at least against teams who sit 10 men behind the ball and set up to defend for 90 minutes.

We play too wide in my opinion. Get the ball out wide in these games and then it’s Barisic or Tav swinging crosses into a congested area aiming for Morelos who’s 5’9. Hit and hope stuff a lot of the time. Same story for way too long now

That was exactly what I was thinking. Considine made the last few minutes a little easier by getting sent off. I just wish we would get that second goal and make life easier for ourselves.

We fail to kill off games again one goal lead is too slender as we can easily concede a goal if we are to win the league we need to score 2 or 3 goals before we put we take the foot of the pedal.

Second half was pretty deja vu.

Just thankful we saw it out and didn't f.uck it up again.

We really need to be more ruthless and clinical.

I thought we strolled through the game in 2nd gear, never really felt worried apart from that corner.

Disappointed we didn't get the 2nd goal to kill it off earlier but delighted with 3 points.

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.
Then boydy had a dig at his brogues ...that was about as much danger we were in all day haha ..agree we should of punished a poor side ...given there was only 1 football team on the pitch ..good away win but we need to be ruthless

Play like this at our peril. The sheep offered no great challenge but any team can hurt you on a set play. We need to get that two goal cushion.

Time and time again last year we failed to kill teams off and it left us very little opportunity to give youth or squad players any opportunity of a run out. This was very much the same. Its a good 3 points though which is the main thing but yeah I had some deja vu.

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.

Me, but i thought we handled it well in the end

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
I totally agree about nice football, we are still wanting to take too many passes, and are still reluctant to shoot from distance. Our Goal came from a quick break and no extra touches. Hagi I like due to him being prepared to hit from distance and unexpected angles. I still don’t understand Stevie G for not insisting on distance shooting. We’ve been guilty for years of over playing passing football, especially, when you’ve got eleven parking the bus.

Funnily enough, I’ve never thought this in my life, unless it’s a movie I’ve been watching.
I despise those silly metaphors.
Sorry!

To be honest I didnt think Aberdeen looked like scoring in a month of Sundays.

If they are happy to sit back when they are losing 1-0 at home then that is their problem.

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.....

The issue is we were in full control of the game.

We need a better bench we have but it takes time

Let's be honest it was like watching an old movie. I really don't know if our management team have learned anything from playing this lot. Abergreen are a very poor team. I was disappointed with the performance. FACT.

This ... We need to start killing teams off , this will kill us as the season goes on, I thought I was beginning to watch a rerun of last season at times.

I never wanted to say this but it’s time for Morelos to go, looked disinterested today, and over weight, the uncertainty could have an impact on other players the longer this goes on.

I think everyone had the fear quite honestly. Yet we’ve come away with the full points

1st half - guile, creative and enterprising.
2nd half - insipid, lacklustre and pedestrian.

Aberdeen were awful, but their subs made a difference, we failed to react to a poor 2nd half performance. Happy with win, but think we all know we are still a bit short.

Not for me, if the game was still going on McGregor wouldn't have a save to make still. That was as comfortable a performance as you could get. Could have had a couple more. Aribo was scoring bar a brilliant clearance too.

We should take confidence from that today, as we do have a tendency to let those types of games slip away

100% OP.

even though Aberdeen were shite, I fully expected them to get an equaliser in the 83rd min then us to be all over them trying to score a winner but it not coming and dropping 2 points.

we need to be putting teams away properly and clinically for a couple of reasons:

1. we will drop points
2. It’s so hard to watch
3. It’ll let us get subs on to rest the first XI
