St Mirren v Aberdeen Scottish Cup Quarter Final 29/2/20

Recommended Posts


Saturday night. Under the lights. Cup match against the team 4th in the League. The opposition have sold out their allocation. Our ticket sales are going well, I hear, and after last night's win against Motherwell will probably go even faster. Made sure of our 4 today. COYS

I remember it well went to every match that season but he played a weakened team in that quarter final and only changed it when The Good Doctor scored his goal.

A treble would have been so much nicer than a double.

The same negative tactics that win us the First Division and Challenge Cup in the same season

We have played Aberdeen 3 times this season they have been poor every time.

We should have won 2 and drew 1 imo in those 3 matches.

We were terrible against Motherwell twice earlier in season but then were much better last 3 matches will Aberdeen be similar and be much improved v us Saturday.

You are right about one thing there should be goals there were 15 between the teams last quarter final matches.

I've kept a holiday back for the replay after a boring 0-0 just in case.

I think they'll be goals. Whilst we are scoring now, we are ever more slightly suspect at the back.
Big feckin pressure on McInnes and his team to get to Hampden.
Could work either way for us, Goody has to get us on the front foot from the off though.

Hoping for early goal in this one. Fear a 0 - 0 bore draw and replay up there.

Sincerely hope not. Hitting them, hard, at home is the best chance we have of making the semis. Dons are on a really bad run, and we should be up and at them right from the start, just like against Well in the replay (and keep it going in 2nd half).

 

They are a big physical side, but with Jakubiak alongside Obika up front we should be able to cause trouble for McKenna and co. And McCarthy and Famewo continue to look solid at the back.

Just need to hope that Waters and Hodson play better than the first half last night.

We do already have a full schedule of matches coming up thick and fast, the last thing we need is another replay. Get it done at the first ask.

 

COYS !!

Plenty pressure on McInnes and his team for this match. Hope they crumble under it.

it'll have been a long time since a few on here have been looking at a big semi..?
Will they know what to do with it?
 

True, but nothing wrong with my memory.  :(

Hopefully no more needless penalties against us with 3 given away in our last 3 league games.

 

I will be calling you Stato from now on Turra. Hadn't realised that but I am admittedly slow!

I am sure the players will be up for it and give 100% even if our Manager doesn't give a feck about the Cup.

Incidentally , we could have won the Cup in 2006 if it wasn't for cheating Gretna..

 

They'll certainly care more than you appear to Shull. Pricky will be there. Or at least he'll claim to be.

Saturday night kick off won’t suit everyone but let’s get as big as a support in as we can - team deserve our backing and we can be positive on a number of fronts.  We have best keeper in the league and the spine of our team is looking good - Two centre half’s are solid, Foley and Cammy are doing a power of work in the middle and Obika finally has a partner up front that is bringing the best out in him. Still think we are a bit dodgy defensively on both flanks but hey ho can’t have everything.

Free hit for us as all the pressure is on Aberdeen to progress. Durmus has been a key man for us in recent games and if he plays well I think we can win this. A semi final trip would be magic so let’s do this ...... COYS !!!

Another 12 hour deluge forecast from about 1am Saturday morning. Big test of the pitch and surrounding drainage again.

Is this a sign? 

Do we play better on a wet pitch?

Can you explain why a team that has been shit for majority of season deserve our backing? Surely it is a personal choice to go to game, get ripped off and freeze to death during it or watch it in the warmth on tv somewhere.

Personal choice yes you are right - think you may be better suited to following one of the ugly sisters right enough ........ go fill your boots m8 😀
