The SUPERCOMPUTER rolled out it’s fixtures this morning at 9am, and delivered us with an exciting start to season 22-23.
Jim Goodwin’s Aberdeen side will be the visitors on Flag Day, determined to not be as pathetic as they were last season under Stephen ‘Walking On Broken’ Glass.
We’ve played Aberdeen a few times on season openers.
The most recent was in 2012, when Kris Commons strike was enough to give us three points. Thanks to Jamie Langfield for that as well.
Before that, we played Aberdeen in 1999, in the first game of the season at Pittodrie in a 5-0 ROUT under the ill-fated leadership of John Barnes.
Three years before that, one of the only games I have left early from in my life - Alan Stubbs debut - a 2-2 draw at Pittodrie thanks to a last minute leveller from Andy Thom!
Elsewhere, delighted to also report the terrible ‘Brother’ Bobby Madden is leaving Scottish Fitba.
JUST IN!— Dale Johnson (@DaleJohnsonESPN) June 17, 2022
FIFA referee Bobby Madden is quitting Scottish football to move to the English system.
Madden, 43, became a FIFA ref in 2010 and has taken charge of Scottish Cup and League Cup finals across a career which has seen him appointed to over 1,000 matches in Scotland. pic.twitter.com/4Xo5yDc87B
Good riddance to him!
A permanent deal for Jota today would have been nice but, we go again and hope he enjoys wherever he is today on holiday!
