We’ve had some arsehole draws in Europe early doors before the Europa League etc

 

Red Star has to be the standout. We were drawn against them in the CWC preliminary round in 1996, when we were supposed to be the seeded team. Red Star had won the European Cup 5 years previously. We went out on away goals.

That another Maroon team Paulo Sergio managed?

 

Aye. I think Cluj won at Old Trafford in his time but he was otherwise unsuccessful. 

 

They've won 5 Romanian titles in the last decade or so. Good going up against Steaua (sp) and Rapid Bucharest. Their benefactor hates paying transfer fees but instead ploughs his dough into the wage bill. They've attracted some pretty high profile, out of contract, players over the years from home and abroad and the policy has served them well.

 

If they get past the Tel Aviv club they'll give Celtic a lot of problems. Assuming the hooped d's also get through.

Rangers got lucky again in the draw, they were unseeded and got the 4th seeds from the 5 options.

 

Dodged Wolves, Gent and Legia Warsaw.

These teams always seem so much more organised than our sides. A team that finishes 3rd/4th in almost any European league must be delighted to draw the scottish teams in these rounds.

Not a bad result for Aberdeen to be fair. Means next weeks tie will be competative too which can only benefit us on the Sunday. A grueling1-1 draw and extra time would be ideal 😁.

Hopefully we should win comfortably.

 

we’ve got to hope that Leigh is fit enough to play and that we can put the tie to bed early enough to be able to take him off and keep fresh for the Sunday.

with our defensive injuries, I wonder if we’ll sign another defensive player.

Thought Aberdeen played fairly well, it was backs to the wall stuff for the Georgian team the entire match, penalty was a shocker.

The penalty wasn’t obvious, but the correct call when played back.

For all the negatives re Killie going out the Dons in a good position, bet that don’t make Twitter. Does that mean other pub leagues exist, come on English peeps you are quick to get stuck in when a bad result.

Don't like them much but Aberdeen are the only genuinely Scottish team left in Europe.

 

Travelled up to Glasgow from ThatEngland on a train yesterday just along from a noisy group of four drunks who got on at Lockerbie and were singing along to a playlist of, ahem, folk songs celebrating the two Rangers clubs and their cultural affiliations. The railway polis watched them from a coach away but did nothing. There was another, quieter bloke, on his own, wearing a 'Hull Loyal' polo shirt. He at least, the drunks established, was going to the game. They weren't.

 

The point can never be stressed enough. To use the evil two as the focus of Weegie-bashing is to miss the point. They are a poison on society and football throughout  Scotland and even further beyond. I'll never welcome either of them winning in Europe because of the coefficient.

I think that is 

             Cosgrove

McGinn Hedges Gallagher

          Ojo  Ferguson 

Leigh McKenna Considine Logan

              Lewis

 

Hope they win, and also it is a tough match that goes to extra time and penalties, and they are all knackered. Selfish.

Stevie May is on the bench.

He’s always looked like a carthorse in the limited times I’ve seen him. But 20+ goals in his first full season and he’s now scored in his last 5 games for Aberdeen.

I was always jealous of Motherwell, ICT, Ross County, Killie when they bring in a player who score ridiculous amount of goals.

I suppose Haring was/is ours.

And Cosgrove is Aberdeens

I can't understand this Cosgrove.  He seems to see the net then kick the ball into it.  Sometimes he heads the ball in.

 

What's that all about?

Great result for them. Cosgrove is limited but he is an absolute unit, can finish and is very hard to play against. Critically he stays on his feet which is what Uche needs to learn.

They scored a few decent goals but that teams keeper and their defence were all over the place. I hope Halkett, Berra and Souttar would prevent most of these types of goals from happening. I'm not panicking over tonight's game.

Cracking win from the Dons. Hopefully a kind draw in the next round. 

I do not like Rangers and Celtic, but outside of them two *swearwords* and Hibs, I want Scottish teams to do well.

Up until the Hibs league cup quarter final last year Cosgrove was god awful. He got hooked at half time in that game and I seriously thought I'd never see him play for Aberdeen again. He obviously got the message and sorted his game out as he's been on some run since September 2018.

apologies for my ignorance, I only really pay attention when Hearts are involved. 

 

that is a list of fairly decent teams. Maybe time to give Cosgrove a rest on Sunday.

That's a dull one.

 

Really hard to get to the group stages for unseeded teams, although seem teams you would have half a chance against.

Definitely, he was awful against us at Tynecastle and should’ve been off. He had only scored a few goals before they signed him so credit where it’s due to him and his coaches.

A lot of gushing over Aberdeen on this thread. :lol:

 

So far, with the draw everyone's had, everyone bar Killie has achieved expectations. This is where it gets tough though. Rijeka will want revenge on Aberdeen, Midtjylland will be a very stern test for Rangers, and Cluj could also be very tricky for Celtic.

 

Also, should Rangers and/or Aberdeen progress to the playoff round, both will be unseeded so there's a high chance they'll have an even tougher draw, with some real heavyweights going in at that point.

 

Rangers fans are probably kidding themselves on if they think they can make the groups again. I think the draws they got last year were very fortunate.

Absolutely, we’ve achieved what we should have in Europe this season.

No embarrassment from us.

By seedlings, we should be knocked out this coming round, but I think we will give ourselves a chance against Rijeka.
