It's a 5 hour flight min.

Nae a trip around the world on a tandem cycle. 

You ever thought of offering your services to the club as a sports scientist? 

I'm sure they will be very interested

It’s not just a 5 hour flight though, is it? It’s all the pish before and after.

No but I spent years on regular long haul flights.  This flight isn't that big a deal. 

5 hours and 3 time zones is nothing to worry about. Would be different if they were flying from the States to Aberdeen or the far east to Aberdeen but they'll be back the same night that they leave.  

Then they will have 3 full sleeps before they play Hearts on Sunday. 

The exertions of the match may tire some but the flight won't have any impact whatsoever.

What pish before and after? 

I assume they are chartering a flight which will take them straight back to Aberdeen. That's about as low hassle as you can get. 

We really molly coddle footballers far too much these days.

Seriously min? 

They'll get on a bus at the stadium and be chauffeured to the airport where they will show their passports and get on their charter flight. 

They'll get a bite to eat, watch something on the video screen and probably have a wee nap before arriving at an empty Aberdeen airport where they'll get straight through passport control.  Then they'll go to bed and have a wee lie in til lunchtime on Friday.  Then no game until Sunday. 

They'll be fine.

Pish like rehydration and replenishing electrolytes lost after strenuous exercise. Physiological disturbances in achieving this occur at high altitudes (as a frequent flier you must be aware that dehydration is pretty much the commonest side effect of air travel). Also flushing out high serum lactate is inhibited. 

Pish like lower oxygen saturations (your average plane pressurizes to a level equivalent to breathing the oxygen at 2 miles above sea level). Any injuries ideally receive oxygen at sea level concentrations at worst to optimise recovery levels. Hyperbaric oxygen improves healing time even more)

Pish like disturbing circadian rhythms.

And having to recover for another match 2 and a half days later......involving a fairly lengthy bus journey, albeit at much higher comfort levels than in a chartered aircraft.

Stuff that no one gave a shit about in the 80s is now standard practice. Resulting in players of a much higher standard of fitness

Aye they'll have to make sure they are rehydrated but that's easy during/after a 5 hour flight.  It's 4 hours to fucking Mallorca from Aberdeen on your holidays. Nobody considers that a long haul flight. 

You're totally over egging the effects of this flight.

So the breidablik manager thinks brown is a bully, then he should have kept his big Icelandic  moo shut when lambasting Aberdeen’s tactics in the first game.    Keep on bullying broon and kicking ass as long as your playing for the dons.

You must be flying Buddy Holly airlines

I go from Glasgow or Edinburgh. 2 hrs 30 tops. 15 minutes more from Aberdeen.

You and I aren't athletes. You aren't running 6 miles plus, some of at full pelt and them jumping on a flight 2 hours later with fresh bruising and muscles full of lactic acid

The flight is only part of the overall effects. None of which are conducive to the players performing to their optimal levels 60 hours later

They'll have a lie in on the Friday. 

Those who played will probably get the whole day off. The ones that didn't might be in on the afternoon for a bit of light training. 

Then a good night's sleep on the Friday night. 

And then there will still be the best part of 2 days before they play Hearts.  Saturday will be pre match prep as usual. 

And they're playing against Andy Halliday, nae fucking Cristiano Ronaldo. 

I'm not saying that those who travel and play 90 minutes won't be completely unaffected but we're talking about young, fit guys. And I'm sure the manager will mix the starting line up for the Hearts a wee bit as well.  We've got a squad of 23 players.

So after all that you are now admitting that it will have an effect on the players. Lol

I'm saying the effect of the travelling is being completely over exaggerated.

Aye I forgot that travelling across 3 times zones twice in around 36 hours, with a 90 minute game in between where the players run in excess of 6 miles and then fly home with any injuries picked up in tourist class pitch seats and with disturbed sleep patterns causes absolutely no adverse physiological effects whatsoever....

Let's break down what you have said:- 

▪︎ Travelling across time zones - they will be there and back the same night, so not long enough to get used to a new time zone. Makes no difference to Sunday. 

▪︎Having to play 90 mins of football/run 6 miles - That's their job. 

▪︎ Go home sitting on seats injured - is that not a risk with EVERY game we play? Players get injured sometimes. It happens. I think plane seats are more comfortable than you're average coach seat anyway. 

 

Stop writing Glasses excuse book for him ffs :banghead:

Much as I like the whole Brooner attitude thing, it can’t be allowed to become a one man panto either, at least not in a manner that is detrimental to the club.

Scott Brown: After leaving Celtic, the Aberdeen midfielder wants to 'prove you all wrong' again - BBC Sport

Good article.  I particularly liked the following quote:

"I was never one to run and get a strip from other players. 'Please, sir, can we swap shirts?' I've never done it. I wouldn't speak to them in the tunnel, I wouldn't help them up off the floor if I fouled them, I wouldn't speak to them after the game. That was my way of getting through. No respect,"

I'm really, really glad we have him here.

An absolute arsehole on the pitch.  Hated him for it when he played for Celtic, but everything you need in a captain in your side. 100% focus on winning and his own side, none of the bullshit. 

Proper captain material.

Got his bit in about Logan. Bided his time after the tweet by Logan when Brown signed.

Great interview 

Rips logan too

"I took a bad touch and he's just lunged at me, nowhere near the ball, smashed me and then I got the ball smacked off the back of my head from whatshisname... [Shay] Logan... or whatever he was," Brown recalls. "He smacked the ball off the back of my head and did a runner as he usually does.

"All the crowd were cheering, so I got back up. 'Here we go again, nice and fresh'. It's just something I do. I get hit and I get up and go again. I enjoy the fight.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had/have absolutely no problem with Logan showing disrespect to Brown and Celtic opposition in that game in 2018.

We could have used more of that in our squad throughout the years.

I'm not into revisionist history.

What was good then is still good today.
