You're a realist. Won't go down well with some on here.What?
That scrimmage in our box 2nd half was one lucky bounce away from us dropping 2 points.
We pass the ball about in our own half way too much with no notion of going forward.
First game and all that, hoping we improve but there was definitely a bit of deja vu going on today.
That's clear to see. Anyone saying otherwise is clueless.Because after we scored today we lapsed into the same bad habits as the last two seasons. We were fortunate today..... May not be so on another day.
We need to keep up the same intensity when we go 1-0 up.
Totally agree, the same folk saying "we won, why the negativity" will be the same who come on here if it finishes 1 1 and slaughter the team.That's clear to see. Anyone saying otherwise is clueless.
Do you think we’d have had the same result had the sheep fans been there? I’m not so sure. Kents goal was well taken. However we seemed to let them back into it for a spell.because it was incredibly similar to what we've seen before, surely anyone who watched us must realise this?
People moan because they canI have seen a lot of folk ripping into players saying they were slow, off the pace etc. Also people having a go at using one sub. Why not? People need to mind this the 1st competitive game we have played in months. Personally I thought it was a good performance throughout.
Lets worry ooooh and dont enjoyI hate posts like this ! Yes we won and yes the 3 points are welcome but the game today was very similar to a lot of last seasons, dominate possession then score then let the other team come at us which ultimately cost us last season. People want to see signs of improvement, this is a piss poor Aberdeen team minus their 2 strikers but we didn't kill them off, might not be popular but the tims would have skelped them today and thats the worrying thing.
Positive confirmation bias?If it was similar to what we've seen before, we'd be winning most of our tougher away games relatively easily. We could have been better going forward but we still created enough chances to win the game easily, won the game relatively easily and that's even before you factor in the unusual circumstances of it being our first competitive match in around 5 months. It absolutely wasn't a struggle but people are going to convince themselves it was, spout it in threads like this and then let their positive confirmation bias take over and see that some people agree with them.
We've seen the flaws of this team over and over, and for me this is one we got away with. Need to be better.Totally agree, the same folk saying "we won, why the negativity" will be the same who come on here if it finishes 1 1 and slaughter the team.
Sometimes you need to see past the result and look at it objectively. That lot go on and win that game 3 nil today, as hard as it is to say. We on the other hand, let the game drift and gives the opposition an opportunity to nick a undeserved draw.
We need to be better than winning and losing due to fine margins.Positive confirmation bias?
Isn't that what you've done?
Aberdeen never fluked an equaliser so it was a good result?
They fluked a goal last season so we were pish and not good enough?
Imo our team is far too structured, which means if the game went 1 1 we wouldn't have went all out to get the win. I still back the manager but sometimes I wish we could put teams under more pressure to make mistakes.We've seen the flaws of this team over and over, and for me this is one we got away with.

Well put, totally agree.Imo our team is far too structured, which means if the game went 1 1 we wouldn't have went all out to get the win. I still back the manager but sometimes I wish we could put teams under more pressure to make mistakes.
Look at our results at end of last season we never scored more than 1 or 2 goals each game. Today was exactly the same and eventually that will come back to.bite you.
We know it's not!! But fitness, and match sharpness wise it is!!It's not pre-season, in case you missed it, the season proper started today.
I'll take the points.
Did you enjoy our performance today?
Did you not read what i said ? Of course i enjoyed the result but that doesn't change the fact that all the bad habits that crept in after xmas still seem to be there. Hopefully there are a couple of decent signings to come that will improve things because today showed that we need improvement if we want to topple the tarriers.Lets worry ooooh and dont enjoy
What a life you must have
No offence, but this is the type of clichéd post that rips my knitting. Do you not think, if we could have scored 3 or 4, we would have? Hanging on? They didn't have 1 shot on target. If you look at the performances at Pittodrie and Rugby Park, we lost them due to extremely poor game management. Mccoist said it this week - we need to defend better. Far better Rangers teams have been beaten at Pittodrie.But that’s my point. Aberdeen were terrible today. Why not be ruthless and try to score 3 or 4? Why are we happy just to pass it sideways and backwards in the 2nd half? When you leave it at 1-0 the opposition only need one chance and for me, our attitude was all wrong.
We’ve seen that 2nd half performance before. I guarantee if you go back and look at Aberdeen in December or any of the rugby park games the performance once we went in front will look similar. If we continue like that this season will have a similar outcome to the last two. I just wish we would look to kill games off by scoring 2 or 3 rather than hanging on to 1.
Exactly how I feelI’m delighted with the result. I said beforehand I’d take a win in any form given previous results at Pittodre. However, there was a touch of déjà vu about that game. Totally dominated the first half, tried to protect a lead, and almost coughed up a goal against a team we dominated. Maybe today isn’t the time to moan, but we need to address our shortcomings if we are to win this title.
If it was the 3rd game of the season I’d say must do better but it was the first , always a tricky game , more so away at aberdeenI have seen a lot of folk ripping into players saying they were slow, off the pace etc. Also people having a go at using one sub. Why not? People need to mind this the 1st competitive game we have played in months. Personally I thought it was a good performance throughout.
