Aberdeen 3-0 Celtic
View attachment 82293
Celtic made it a game for the first half before one of the least likely of scorers center back Silva put us ahead. With Celtic trying to go more attacking Greek God Stelios quickly had us 2 goals clear and with the game over Paulo Alexandre put the game to bed to secure our 8th Treble on the bounce. If we are still here next summer we could have done the treble treble, or treble treble treble. Im not sure haha


End of Season 2034/35

The Aberdeen title is our weakest defense in a few years as we stunningly lost two games. The squad is getting old and the youth graduates have been abysmal at best so a decline from now till 2038, or when i leave is to be expected. Celtic were safe in 2nd for most of the season but Rangers needed a late charge to rescue 3rd spot from Partick while Hibs under Craig Malcolm look as good as they did in the Neil Lennon days, he left 8 seasons ago. Morton & Falkirk were not far from the top 6 both under new managers will be looking at getting back to the top 6 next season. Heart first manager change in 15 seasons saved them from relegation but a 8th place finish is well below what they should be doing. Mothwell dominated the bottom 6 games to pull clear of any relegation danger which saw Forfar go down and Hamilton in the play offs with Dundee also returning to the SPL

Just noticed the Champions League final was Grangier's 800th game for Aberdeen meaning he's played more games for Aberdeen than anyone EVER!

Man Citys sad domination of the league continues win even Man Utd unable to keep up. Sunderland came agonisingly close to a champions league spot due to Arsenal dropping to 7th, Liverpool 9th and Leicester 14th!
Same story in Germany as Leverkusen win another title and are followed up by other youth producing mega powers Schalke & Dortmund and Bayern drop into the Europa League. At the other end Stuttgart are one of the biggest teams to get relegated in any league
Roma nicked the Serie A title from favorites Napoli by 1 point. Inter get the final Champions League spot while right on there tails were AC Milan and Juventus who go into the Europa Leauge
Atletico Madrid keep up there record of a major title every season with the League from Real Madrid. Bilbao & Villarreal are in the champions League with Valencia 5th and 6th place BARCELONA

Our odds hit an all time low. Top 4 is as expected after the end to last season. Partick are underpriced down in 8th while Dundee are as high as any promoted team has been in a long time.

Jamie Oyarzun is set ot be the starting wing back as Haskin gets into his 30s. Henrique may be in his last season starting ahead of Paulo Alexandre if he starts to drop off and Manea has the impossible task of taking Klein's No9

Dundee are still best of the rest but the teams are all bunched up. Celtic found a few wins and are up to 7th as Rangers take there place in the bottom 3 with Hearts and Partick. Two of those teams fought on the final day for 3rd spot!

Champions League

A very slow start at home to Napoli seen us drop a point and go right on the back foot before a routine win against whipping bots Dinamo. We'll need to get a result of some sort in one of the games against Man Utd or we might have to think about Europa League action

Celtic in a far easier group have made good start and might take our spot in the last 16!

A friendly and another easy win in the group

The Dons are further clear than i can remember being New sides Raith, Motehrwell and Dundee's ability to make transfers has them in the top 6 with Celtic having won less than half there games. After the start Rangers & Hearts have made its obvious why they had to change managers

Champions League
View attachment 81818
After a draw at Old Trafford we turned the group on its head by beating them in Aberdeen while Dinamo stun Napoli and are in pole position for a Europa League spot. In Match 5 it looked like a 92nd minute equalizer in Naples had cost us top spot until Dinamo extended the unbeaten run to 3 group games and left us in pole position for top spot.


The 0-0 Draw at Windsor park ruined our perfect record but locked down our spot at Euro 2036 then with several changes we pumped Azerbaijan.

I will be joining Dundee Utd but starting up another story on the story's page and hopefully running it side by side with the Dons save which with all the youth coming through especially my son made it impossible to walk away.

Not sure how i'll get on with this but time will tell if i have enough attention to do two saves side by side.

We were in tatters for the first half hour and when Grangier got a red card i conceded in myself that it was over. However we came out in the 2nd half and were the better team and were certainly unlucky not to pull back more than 1 goal. That goal has us set up perfectly for the 2nd leg

A dire game where we had a extra man for a hour but couldnt make it happen. Tactical mistakes on my side i can not deny that i really think i left it too late to go all out attack and cost us a semi final spot.

Last full season for Matheus Micael & Jose Henrique who now at 34 will be on a sharp downfall. Grangier is also 34 but will not be getting rest. Elsewhere Pesce had another great season and Langdalen showed he might be good enough to take Pesces spot in years to come. Evensen also stepped up for Grangier when required but no danger in a change there.

Group Phase

Match 1
Scotland 1-0 Greece

Prior to kick off i had totally underestimated the Greeks. They have 3 players valued over £30m and my player of the year at Aberdeen Tsaousakis is only 3rd on that list. We played to our defensive strengths and after taking a early lead shut down the Greeks who have the talent to join us in the last 16.

Match 2
Slovenia 0-1 Scotland

Highway robbery at the Stadium of light. Having dominated the game, the Czechs didnt manage a shot on target in 120 minutes but it came down to the most dramatic of shoot outs. We missed our first penalty and nobody else did till the final Czech Penalty sent it to sudden death. Thats where it got even worse as the Czechs missed two in a row and we had the penalty to win it only to miss it ourselves. We would not score again and Pokorny put us out earlier than i would have expected. I wouldnt expect many changes in this squad as Grangier is the only starter over 31 while McIlroy had become a bit part player.
