    Apparently, they are also keen on tying up James Wilson on a permanent contract, despite him only scoring 3 goals last season. Makes you wonder if niether of these players hit a purple patch next season, where they finish. On Main, I liked him, did a lot of work up front on his own at times. Although you could see that not scoring was getting too him, he had enough chances just felt that he tried too hard to get that kick start.

    Wasn't nice being papped out of the Davie Cooper stand to allow the Old Firm fans to have it. So I have felt that POD fans have had a bad deal when they are accommodated in there. I can sometimes see it for some of the other games but why should you have to give up your usual seat or season ticket seat to let someone else sit there. The South Stand is there, I would rather see it in use than lying empty during a game. On the other side, the Evil Sisters are already reducing the number of tickets for away fans, they still get a better view of the game and less hassle than when we go there. So they can't complain if they only get the South Stand.

    My brother and I, and my son, had season tickets in the back row of the Cooper Stand, W35,36,37. I think those were the seat numbers, I still have all the season books in my loft. We chose our seats when the stand opened , remember talking to John Chapman about finishing off the main stand, he quipped that we need another Phil sale to fund any more ground improvements. I still see him now and again at a garden centre we and my wife frequent. Anyway, football is not the same as it was when I was a wee boy.

    I've sat metres away from Old Firm fans at Ibrox, Parkhead and Hampden before, but thankfully I've managed to avoid the apparent warzone that the Phil O'Donnell turns into under similar circumstances.

    You are obviously a lot younger than me with less experience of the bile the bigot brothers bring with them on match day. I have been a fan for well over 50 years, nearly 60 years, followed them everywhere. But being called a f****n bastard or an orange cunt, on numerous occasions, even asked by a h*n cunt what religion I was when sitting in the main stand, I gave up attending those matches. But I gave it a go again in 1993, a few days after the IRA killed two wee boys in Warrington, we had to endure almost 5,000 bigots giving us varying renditions of IRA songs. Even a Police officer next to me was visibly upset. Then John Boyle made me give up my season ticket seat in the Cooper Stand to accommodate this vermin, I gave up and have never been back. Celtic and Rangers are the scum of Scotland and I hate them with a passion that is unhealthy. Anyway, I have said my bit.

    Why dont you go the whole hogg and sit in the Copland Road stand at Ibrox and the Lisbon Lions stand at Parkhead for away games. You've got to be at the wind up here. Away fans in the POD is a nightmare simples.

    He goes to Alistair every home game and is one of the leading members of the Former Players Club. Great guy.

    I’d imagine it would be a very defensive announcement for Main and Ash Taylor, going by Aberdeen fans’ reaction on twitter to the rumours. Similar to our announcement of Sammon last summer.

    Complete guess, but reading about Gateshead's predicament. I was wondering if the rumoured non-league winger we were close to signing could be one of their out of contract players. ? Maybe Greg Olley - north east lad who has lost his way a little after spells at Newcastle & Hull

    Apparently Sevco and Celtic fans will also be barred from the Cooper Suite.

    Is there any confimration he is actually signing for Aberdeen or is it still just paper talk?

    I'd be stabbing my eyes out if it was Main and Cosgrove up front. Both very 'purple patch' strikers. They better hope they dovetail nicely.

    Robinson made various references to needing a goalscorer beside him, aye. Actually think him and Cosgrove might make a decent go of it at Aberdeen.

    The problem for Main last season was even when he wasn't loan striker (in the first half of the season) he only managed 3 league goals. You could see his confidence drain every game that went by. It was actually a smart move by Robinson, even it was partly forced by circumstances, to start playing him as a lone striker. We were fortunate that for the first time in years we suddenly had a midfield that could score goals. I thought Main did a decent job as far as hold up and linking was concerned, but ultimately, a striker needs to be able to score. In the end, he just ended up not taking the gambles confident strikers take to get into positions where he might score. I don't necessarily expect a lone striker to have the same return as one with a strike partner, but they need to be able to chip in more than 1 goal every 6 months. A change of scenery might get his confidence back, but I don't think he'll ever be prolific. Stick him beside a regular goalscorer again and he should make a decent contribution.

    A lone striker who doesn't score goals is always going to be in bother when it comes to the boo boys...I for one, felt that he played that role well, brought others into play, made space for those around him and often occupied central defensive pairings much bigger than him, on his own.

    Showed absolutely none of that in the past year since that game.

    Main showed enough in his purple patch to demonstrate there's a player in there. Particularly his charging down of the ball, run from half way at Hampden and as cool a finish as you'll ever see. It's up to a manager to sign him on the basis he's confident he can get that out of him on a regular basis.

    Undoubtedly the correct decision by the Club...we should be looking after our own supporters comfort and welfare before anything else.

    Spoken like someone who has never had to put up with Celtic or Rangers fans pish in the O'Donnell stand.

    I'm not particularly bothered as I don't sit in the POD, but if your day is ruined by sitting in the same stand as some away fans for 90 minutes then I'm not sure if football's the sport for you.

    I wouldn't have thought there would be any issues with those sides either. Glad that Rangers and Celtic fans wont be back in though as it will waste the atmosphere for the people in there. Hopefully will encourage a few more of our fans to turn up.

    I get the arguments on both sides (cash V supporter enjoyment) and from an unashamedly selfish point of view I'm behind the club in its decision. However those who advocate housing some OF fans in one of our 3 "home" stands usually suggest doing so in a stand where they don't sit. The club will take a modest financial hit but seems to be doing so for our own supporters. Hopefully a few more of our own lot will be encouraged to turn up at these games.
