the same decent squad struggled to create any chances against St Johnstone on Saturday when we rested two first team players and had one injured. I though it was insane to have McGinn and Rooney on the bench and leave us with out our starting front 3.
 
Play the staring 11 against Ayr and Hearts unless we have injuries.


We looked worse when then two came on.

McInnes' pish formations don't help.

The 'they can manage, they are professional footballers' argument is stupid.
We have a decent squad now, this is the sort of game to use it in.

  

Correct


Still say you won't get the best out of Storey playing the Mackie role until you sort out your AM to feed him.


Did Mackie have a role???

Having lost 4 domestic cup games in a row and it being almost 2 years since we beat Hamilton in the league cup quarter finals I'd say fielding a weak team would be a baaaaaad choice

 

Unless we only pick under 20s players. Then they can win the League Cup, Youth Cup and Challenge Cup treble

I was giving him the benefit of the doubt! :zoomer: Storey playing on the last man's shoulder, turning/pinning back the defence and running onto a perfectly weighted pass or knock-on between the defence and the keeper is what I meant.  Don't worry if you don't recognise the above scenario it hasn't been seen for a while at Pittodrie but I'm told it is still allowed.

 

Think Stavrum, but without the Linesman's flag.

Haha aye. I do recall this happening in the past, my memory hasn't gone yet ;)

Ah Arild, he loved a good offside stray

Rooney

Storey

 

This team should be capable of taking care of Ayr Utd. Use the squad, that's what it's there for and keep the team fresh for the Hearts game (wish we need to win to get a solid start to the season).

Maybe we should rename them StorA and StorB so there's less confusion?

4 4 2 please

McGinn to start- unless Hayes is back we don't have enough creativity - we need one to start- he can always come off at 3-0 round about halftime

So 5 matches tonight and 4 upsets.

We've lost our last four domestic cup matches.

We must be on our guard tomorrow and need our freshest players on the pitch ready to put this to bed early.

This game is actually really big for us, defeat in this would be a really bad start to the season.

 

Play two up front, get Burns in the team and Storey.

 

Full strength team required.

I'd go:

 

Lewis

 

Logan O'Connor Reynolds Shinnie

 

Burns Jack McLean McGinn

 

Rooney Storey

 

5-2 Dons but with us being pegged back to 1-1 briefly. Stockley to score off the bench. McLean to do something half-decent.

600 away tickets sold. Decent numbers considering it's midweek and in Ayr.
