They checked passes id ,tickets abot 30 yards from the (overmanned) turnstyles I was in the queue 20+ mins before anyone check I should have even been in it, Could have check covid passes at the top of Merkland road and then you could walk straight doen to the turnstyles and in.

Im actually gald it was 5665 - at 10k would have been chaos at 20k people wouldnt be in yet 

I went in the DD stand and it was fine. There was multiple queues to be ID checked and get the wristband before you then joined the turnstyle queues.

Sounds like the SS / Merkland access was more restrictive.

My mate had commented that the queue down the merkland looked to have cleared by kick-off

I'm sure they'll take feedback and improve.

Didn't think it was that big a deal getting in last night

Tell that to the folk queued all the way up to King Street. That wasn't me, I went in the Park Rd entrance. Waited 30mins to get in. Could've been quicker, and that much is obvious when you see a supervisor running up to checkers telling them to speed up and start moving diwn the line and checking instead of waiting for Joe Soap to approach. 

Like I said, it's the first time so going to be teething problems, but they need sorting if they want to get more fans in whilst there are restrictions.

1st real game so always going to be slightly slower, will definitely get best practice very quickly

Had to queue for 40 minutes on Merkland Road part of the problem was lots that were in the 7-7.30 slot turned up early, didn't help that the turnstile didn't open until 6.35. Good job it was a fine night wouldn't want to be doing this in December

May be condescending, but can't argue with 5-1.

Aberdeen/Hacken/Wien/Briedablik are unseeded obviosuly.

The team list wont be confirmed until next Thursday late at night, and obviously the mini groups late Sunday night or early Monday morning but at the moment the QR4 opponents looking like this.

AS Roma Ita 90.000
Tottenham Hotspur Eng 88.000
FC Basel ** Sui 49.000
FC København ** Den 43.500
Viktoria Plzen ** Cze 33.500
AA Gent ** Bel 26.500
Anderlecht *3 Bel 25.000
FK Astana ** Kaz 22.500
LASK *3 Aut 21.000
Feyenoord ** Ned 21.000
Qarabag FK ** Azb 21.000
FCSB ** Rom 21.000
Maccabi Tel-Aviv Isr 20.500
PAOK Thessaloniki Gre 20.000
AEK Athens ** Gre 19.500
Stade Rennais Fra 19.000
Partizan Belgrade Srb 18.000

There is teams in there we COULD beat albeit hardly any we could realistically EXPECT to beat. Encouraged by the list though as its not impossible unlike previous years. Aberdeen v FCSB (Steau Bucharest) for a play off in the Conference league would be decent. You get Roma or Spurs and its game over mind. They would be the only two I would give us no chance against. Yeah I know we did well v Burnley but different quality of player at Spurs.

I'm hopeful that Hacken and Wien/Breidablik are presenting almost our best chance of getting to a play off round in recent seasons.

Out of that list, Spurs , Roma and Rennes are the only obvious avoids. Steau Bucharest and Qarabag would be ideal though.

I'd fancy us v Qarabag.

Worked in Baku 2 years ago and went to a few of their games including CL qualifier v Apoel Nicosia and EL group game v Seville.

Would LOVE to go back there under normal circumstances.

Was some 7 or 8 months there.

Use to work Monday to Saturday, but Friday was always a monumental stramash straight after work, mostly with Aberdeen guys with a moderate sprinkling of weegies and guffs.

One Friday, during grand prix weekend, was in this bar wi nae windis, so had no idea it was actually light outside.

Bar staff had to phone one of the guys from work, saying we have on of your lot here but he doesn't know his name or where he stays. Was fucking 7.30am.
Quick snooze, in office absolutely spangled by back of 9.

Fantastic times.

Read on Twitter last night a suggestion that our match v Dundee Utd might have to get shifted as, if we get through to the next round, and I think, assuming we visit Vienna in the first league there’s the possibility of a fixture clash with Rapid and Austria Vienna both being scheduled to play at home on the same night. Anyone any idea if I did read this or if I dreamt it?

If Rapid Vienna and Austria Vienna are both at home on the Thursday (needs Rapid to lose (cos they are champions league) this week and AV to win) then one of them will need moved.

One game goes to the Tuesday OR

One game goes to the Wednesday OR

One tie has the legs reversed.

Hopefully the Bredablik win and it doesnt matter

Looks like full crowds allowed there? One end looks full. 

Hopefully Icelandic team can sneak it at home on Thurs.

Rapid Vienna  knocked out Champions League and now playing at home next Thursday in The Europa League.

If Austria Vienna get through I wonder if our game will be changed ie home first leg, away 2nd leg?

No away support so could maybe play them on the same day? Prefer to be away first leg so hopefully thats possible.

Can they not just play one game on the Wednesday?

We could potentially have a full house on the current dates if the dentist is true to his word (unlikely I know)

Absolutely (although maybe not full) and I'm sure the club will be pushing to maintain the away leg first if it comes to that.

Hopefully Breidablick win tonight anyway.

Would prefer the Austrians.

Easier game I'd say. Finished 8th last season.

Also possibility of the away trip.

Nae sure to be honest. Uefa might have some shite rule in place regarding no other European games clashing with Champions League or some tripe.

There were some Europa and Conference games on Tues this week but obviously that canna happen next week with us playing Sunday.

One game early and one game late in Vienna on Thurs would work if no away support maybe? If not one tie might be switched and likely Austria Vienna v us since the Rapid game is "bigger" being The Europa.

Aye.

Will be some incentive for us going into the second leg.

mcinnes didnt get many QR3L2's at home.

Sociedad and Kairat? 2 out of 7? (i'll class Burnley as QR3)

We will definitely still be unseeded so it will be a tough draw, albeit increased opportunity to get a lower seeded side
