I told you, I told you, I told you! Okay, maybe that’s something for a playground rather than a football website. But anyway, I told you! Well, forget the 5-0, it was half right. Finally young Sone came up with the goods and silenced the arrogant Arabs.

It’s funny, or maybe not when you think seriously, how Aberdeen are struggling to keep hold of the players we currently have, when clubs considered pondlife in the premier league like Birmingham can give these players like Sone away without even noticing they’re gone.

Undoubtedly we’re all hoping Pittodrie is Aluko’s stepping stone to great things, just like Alex Ferguson’s story. However, in the short term we will all be hoping to keep hold of him as long as possible! Here until January at least, he and we have the option of an extension to the end of the season but there is, according to Steve Bruce, no chance of a permanent deal. But if his ability is the key to a cup this season, Sone may just go down in the record books as another soul to grace the Aberdeen shirt.

His goal on Saturday is by far one of the classiest seen at Pittodrie for a while. The effortless nutmeg was capped off with a cool blast past the helpless Szamotulski.

Looking away from Sone for the moment at least, it would be interesting to have seen had the following game been a league one if Jimmy Jimmy has fielded the same, or at least a similar starting eleven. The finest football of the season and a brilliant win, maybe some key players aren’t as important and influential as we think?

I don’t think many people in the SPL have been substituted with half an hour to go and still been the only contestant in the man of the match competition. That performance should seal his place in the starting eleven for just now at least.

What was that about rubbish scouts?
