I think ‘unhappy’ would be an understatement as to how some fans, both Aberdeen and Dundee, will be feeling at this moment following the announcement that the game at Dundee will now take place on Saturday.

This had been scheduled for Monday but the club confirmed in a statement on the Official Website that as much as they ‘fully understand the supporters frustrations with the situation’ it was mutually decided that playing this on Saturday and not Monday would be best, and better serve our chances of ending the season strongly.

International call-ups also dictated this, not to mention the fact that playing this on Monday wasn’t wanted in the first place! A date at another stage of the season was looked into but it was decided wasn’t possible.

‘The Club did investigate whether the game could have been rescheduled for a later date but with the league split happening next month, finding an alternative date would have been extremely challenging as we have seen with the Dundee versus Celtic game having to be moved.’

The statement went on to highlight that as much as most would have ‘preferred the Saturday TV slot of 12.15’ to begin with and as a result more can now attend the game it’s also known that some will now be ‘unable to attend the match and others will have had their weekend and travel plans disrupted.’

All tickets remain valid and full refunds will be given if necessary.

‘Any supporters who have bought a ticket for the Monday night and are now unable to attend will get a full refund. Please contact the Pittodrie ticket office directly to facilitate your refund.

‘All tickets will be valid for those who can attend.’

These refunds aren’t really going to do much to compensate those who might have arranged expensive travel plans and/or booked accommodation or taken time, which might involve loss of earnings, from work will it!

Football seems to be a law unto itself sometimes….

Back to the footballing matters Montenegro trialist defender Milos Milovic is understood to have earned himself a contract at Pittodrie having impressed Derek McInnes during a trial although the 19-year-old obtaining a work permit could be problematic?
