Aberdeen Save 2022

Champions League Final 2045

From Signal Iduna Park


Thats right! Dortmund qualified for their first final in 34 years and it happens to be at their own stadium, 3rd final in a row without an English team involved too

Aberdeen 1-0 Dortmund

A very tight final where the home advantage helped Dortmund but couldn't get them over the line as the DOns with a 7th Champions League in a row and our toughest win​

Aberdeen 3-1 Real Madrid


We have completed the game on the Club front. The tie with Liverpool was lucky to go our way but after 2 terrible efforts in previous trips to this contest, we deserved this one.​
End of Season 23

SPL - Winner

13th title in a row and we won our 22nd SPL title to finally overtake our times as a runner up but were still 33 wins behind Rangers leading the way. We had a perfect first half of the season but after losing that perfect record we slowed down losing 3 more games as we rotated. Behind us, the top 6 were all split so much that we could have put the flag in the season after the split. Celtic & Hibs both jumped last year's Runner-Ups Rangers however all 4 get into the Champions League with the rising league coefficient. Dundee Utd and Hearts will be the Europa League hopes while Queens Park's reward for being champion of the bottom half is a spot in the Conference. Ross County is now a bottom half team with Hearts getting their act together after some close calls in the last decade. Motherwell's yo-yo situation remains with their relegation fascination. St Mirren who had spent 15 seasons top 7 and or in Europe are in the playoff for the 2nd season in a row. St Johnstone made an immediate return to the SPL as Cove fell flat on their face at the end of the season again and again fell apart in the playoffs

St Mirren 4-2 Hamilton

It was closer than last season but after losing the away leg a 3-0 win at home keeps them in the top flight

Allan Campbell is back for his 2nd stint at Ross County. He is in his 5th SPL job and has yet to make it through 2 full seasons.

Dundee Utd returned to Europe reaching the Europa League last 16
Hibs fell in the Europa League Playoff round
Queens Park's first adventure into Europe matches Hibs reaching the Europa League Playoff round

Squad Review

Squad GK.png

Bit of trouble with the No2 spot but Ajayi is still the solid No1

Squad DF.png

Langton & Krajcek have locked down the wing-back roles but less secure is the spot next to Cummings who himself is away to turn 32 and no clear future CB at the club to play with or replace him.

Squad MF.png

Wingers were the stars. Piepenbrock steps up in his 2nd season making it harder for Calder's path into the starting 11. Petkov's spot is slightly safer and after scoring the winning goal in the Champions League final was my star of the season, out with a certain striker. Alvarez, Zon and Jacobs are all on an equal footing splitting time in the middle, Jimenez is demoted to 4th choice and Martinez has repeatedly asked for a move to Argentina but every time i talk to him to accept his decision he just says he's happy to say despite me being happy to let him go.

Squad AT.png

MacIver outdid himself destroying the SPL scoring record and his own scoring 72 goals in 52 games. Craig statistically was the 2nd best forward but Dujakovic plays the harder game and has a far better Ave rating. Teenage Tomas Hernandez made a great first impression

Season 24
Aberdeen 2045

The Dons won a record-breaking 7th Champions League in a row and our first-ever world club cup. For the 3rd season in a row, my sole focus of the season is a perfect season in the SPL. It's embarrassing that I've never managed this before


Squad GK.png

The old 1-2 punch of Ajay and Lawrie is back. Lawrie's aim is to play 15-20 games a season as he is now Scotland's no1

SQaud DEf.png

The back four stays the same as last season. Depth is lacking but we have a few prospects in the u19 that will get game time and Berry & Alvarez can step back and play DC

Squad mids.png

Our strongest midfield ever? Zon has replaced Martinez despite being even more attacking the elite midfielder is now set to be a key starter. Berry & Calder on the bench somehow need to break into this side

Squad Att.png

MacIver and Dujakovic continue to lead the line. I have no idea why Dujakovic never gets ant bids. Craig is just about ready to join Maciver up top. Hernandez could be better than all of them and i hope his lack of game time won't affect his development.

Transfer Window

Dundee Utd and especially Hibs open the coffers and spend record fee's making a mockery of the old firm. Especially Rangers

A major drop to £16m was donated to other Scottish sides for their dross. I planned to go back in with more cash later in the window but was handicapped trying to loan out my own current players

Very quiet window on the sales front too. I planned to use Skeet as my backup MR but with plenty of depth and a silly offer from City saw him leave. Backups Defender Carvalho and keeper Larsen were moved on for our improving youth players.

Towards the end of the window, one of our players got his long-mooted move back to Argentina. Or did he?

So after 2 seasons of talking about wanting to move back to Argentina something i was happy to facilitate. The first offer we had was from Newcastle United. That team 250 miles away not quite the 7500 miles it is to his homeland. Ramiro wanted the move so after 2 spells and 11 seasons the club's greatest centre midfielder is away.​



Standard August perfect start in the league.

I was not aware you could lose these

Champions League Draw
CL Draw.png

Tough draw this year​



Perfect in the domestic side of things although plenty of close games.


Celtic make a strong start but get thrashed in Aberdeen towards the end of the month. Ross County at the bottom have fallen some way over the years.

Champions League

We are the only team to go 3/3 Not sure what went wrong with PSG in the opening game


We are doing our very best to not qualify for the World Cup. A rare slip-up at home to the Swiss wouldn't have been so bad had we got a win in Denmark. It's all in our hands however if we can beat the bottom two of Georgia & Faroe Islands then we top the group.​



Celtic again ensure we won't have a perfect season by beating us 1-0 at Parkhead. Needless to say, we won the remaining games


Celtic are keeping us honest while the 3rd to 7th are split by 7 points.

League Cup Final
Hearts 2-6 Aberdeen AET

During our slow run in December Hearts twice came from behind to force extra time. Where they totally collapsed and Dujakovic scored an extra time hattrick to lead us to victory

Champions League

We drop points but still sit top and in a decent spot to go through automatically

We got the wins to secure our spot at the 2046 World Cup

We return from the break in devastating form


Celtic lost but are still staying in touch while the rest of the league fumbled. At the bottom, it already looks like Ayr vs Ross County

Champions League
The Bielefield match was insane and helped to seal the top spot.

All 4 Scottish sides get out of the group with Hibs taking the 24th and final spot in the playoff with the Old Firm teams

I almost spat out my drink when i saw Dundee Utd sold a player for £84m.

Transfer Dundee Utd.png

I really do not see the fee or how he is now valued at £148m


Made up for our quiet summer improving the domestic game by spending £64m on 29 different players from other Scottish sides that were almost out of contract or transfer listed

4 youths join too

One club not needing my money is Motherwell who were taken over by an Arab tycoon

February & March


Domination continues on the domestic front.


Celtic are still having a great season despite falling 12 points off the lead. Looks like we're away to get a fantastic battle for 3rd place. The two-horse race at the bottom is still alive. Ross County still have Ayr at arm's length

Champions League

CL Playoff.png

Rangers and Celtic are through. Hibs put up a strong fight with Inter but fell just short of a huge upset. Rangers however did pull off an upset knocking out last year's finalists Watford

Last 16
Aberdeen 8-3 Real Madrid

We had a stonking end to the first leg after a fantastic tie for the first 50 minutes. 2nd leg was managing the tie.

QF Draw
Juventus vs Aberdeen
CL QF Draw.png



The title was won against Rangers who we then beat in the cup. Rotated the squad and still won every game. Triggers me to the max every year that 1 game in the winter ruins a perfect season


The top 2 were already set. Bottom 2 look set. Anyone's guess who gets 3rd spot

Champions League Q/F
Aberdeen 6-0 Juventus on Agg


Two really simple games with Juve never putting us in any danger

Have you ever seen such a weak QF? Benfica await in the Semi
CL QF ALl results.png



We end the season with 3 wins


Our 2nd best points total and our 4th unbeaten season. 1 Silly game with Celtic. Ayr's 10-season stay in the top flight comes to an end.

Scottish Cup Final
Dundee Utd 0-2 Aberdeen

Champions League Semi-Final
Benfica 1-2 Aberdeen

Benfica put on a spectacular defensive display to restrict us more than any club has in years over both legs. Leipzig win the other semi-final becoming the first team other than Aberdeen to eliminate PSG in the past 5 seasons​
