It’s been a different sort of season for the fans this time around, only five out of fourteen encounters this season having been kicked off on the traditional 3pm of Saturday. Today’s clash with Falkirk will be the 6th out of 15 and the midweek cup game with Inverness will make it 7/16. No-one suffers really apart from the fans and in football nowadays, we all know where the fans are in a football club’s list of priorities. And on the subject of facts, figures and fans, well done to Gretna for smashing the record of the lowest SPL attendance ever against Caley Thistle on Saturday.

It’s fair to say we were quite frankly whooped in Athens, Panathanaikos giving us a lesson in finishing, defending and how to con the referee. But all that’s behind us now, in the past, gone, forgotten. And we can only look forward to the mouthwatering schedule ahead of us.

He was only on the park for 5 minutes, but new boy Sone Aluko certainly brought some interest back into the game in the last few minutes. With Darren Mackie ruled out for todays game, and up to the next five, Aluko must grab his chance with both hands and stay clear of the physio room. Talking about injuries, Derek Soutar is still out and so is Jamie Smith.

Last year it was a clean sweep over Falkirk with three wins out of three and hopefully, no changes this year. After a poor performance, the Dons normally come out all guns firing and brush the other team off the park, a version of bouncebackability. That’s my justificiation for my blind prediction of 4-0, to the Aberdeen.
