  1. I don’t disagree, but charging makes it even more of a hard sell.
  2. Personally I think it should be free - try and encourage folk to go along, especially when there’s no 1st team matches. I suppose they’re trying to cover the costs of playing at the stadium, but I think getting folk in the door for free will pay off longer term.
  3. Works for me too. I may actually manage to make this game now.
  4. Thanks for this but someone has booked dinner tonight - for KO - so I’ll not be watching, catching the odd update on the net will likely be as much as I’ll manage. Hoping for a win, would take a draw. Home form has been good and Sevco’s form has definitely dipped so reasons for optimism. Much will depend on our ability not to lose an early goal. COYS !!
  5. Not a bad idea. My son is heading to the game tonight with three of his pals - none are Buddies, but students from around the UK who enjoy football and miss watching their own teams while studying in Glasgow. I’m not saying a scarf would be enough to get them going along on a regular basis but it wouldn’t do any harm. as has been mentioned by others, a stirring performance, a few goals and a home win would probably do the job !
  6. Anyone recommend a bar in Manila where I can maybe watch this match ?
  7. Love reading this thread and seeing how the ladies are getting on - not too shabby it seems. Shame the club doesn’t highlight their results or fixtures on the home page. Any reason not to ?
  8. And the drum has just entered the stadium !!
  9. Well, thankfully no ticket issues, but will take Nate of the warnings for future. naebdy here yet though ! Saw two of our buses arrive and they were greeted by an extremely large police presence - searching them. unbelievable. and totally unwarranted. COYS !!
  10. Big shout out for the folks in our ticket office - I phoned back on Tuesday afternoon, bought two tickets and they arrived the next day. See you at Pittodrie ! COYS !!
  11. Well, the ticket office did call back, on Friday afternoon while I was tied up, but they did call. Twice. I phoned today, bought the tickets and should receive them in plenty time for the match. Postage, £3 or £8 !! Frightening. Only two tickets as my son and his friends couldn’t confirm til the end of the week - too late to get tickets mailed. Not expecting a result but hoping for a good performance and perhaps even a goal or two ! From what I saw of the Celtic match Dons looked good going forward, with slick fast passing but still look vulnerable at the back. I’d like to see us start with Main partnering Ayunga up front.

  12. Surprised to find I’m more up for this match than I thought I’d be. (pre- season blind optimism) The league cup performances weren’t great and I’m not sure the manager has decided what his best starting 11 is. Or the favoured formation. However I think we will play better. Ayunga looks like he’s capable of scoring a few goals Bacchus looks a player and Strain can cross a ball So putting the managerial sideshow aside It’s the first league game of the season and, as has been pointed out already, a win could see us top the table. if we score first we will win 2-0 or 3-1 COYS Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. My niece signed for the first team recently and is absolutely loving it. There was a piece on her in the DR a few weeks ago, with my Dad too. Good to see them getting more coverage in the press but would like to see more on the official site. I think they’ll do better this season than last. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Still waiting for the ticket office to call me back … Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Ridiculous. I live north of Aberdeen and have to get my tickets from our ground in Paisley. Madness. I have phoned but, like every other number you call these days they are experiencing higher than expected levels of calls. Left a message and waiting for someone to call back. Need them to post the tickets too as no way I’m driving down to Paisley to collect ! Can only get for me and my wife as my son and his pals can’t commit yet and probably be too late to have them mailed by the time they can make a decision. Clubs really are making it difficult for folk to attend games these days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I thought we played ok against Arbroath and on another day, IF we had scored first, I think we could easily have eased to a 2-0 or 3-0 victory. Obviously that didn’t happen though … Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Had a terrific shot from well outside the box in the 2nd half too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Well, I actually quite enjoyed watching that. Obviously took the foot off the gas after scoring the third, and their goal, which may have been offside exposed shoddy defending but was well taken. The only disappointment for me today was Reid, everyone else got at least pass marks from me. Even Olusanya, who I think will become a player for us once he gets up to speed. Standouts for me included Ayunga, Baccus, Offord, Strain and Taylor, when he came on. I am well aware who the opposition were, and I’m not saying I’m suddenly optimistic about the season or anything, but I am definitely less pessimistic about our season opener against Well. COYS !!

  20. Yes, definitely a much better performance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Ayunga looking like a decent striker too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Really liking the look of Baccus. O’Hara too, but I already thought that from his time at Well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. So I’ve decided to fork out on ppv and watch the game tomorrow. By all accounts we were absolutely honking against Airdrie but I’m hoping the players will give a positive reaction to the rightful criticism that was levelled at them from supporters, manager and media. Surely we can’t be as bad again. Surely …. COYS !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I’m pleased you’ve got a ST, along with more than 3k others. I live in north Aberdeenshire - ST was going to be a wee treat for myself and a way of putting some more money into the club - I only manage 2-3 home matches a season plus away trips to County, Dons, Dundee and Perth. Unfortunately , I don’t feel like giving the club the extra funds right now. That may change. Yes, I’ll be buying dinner ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
