Fixture List - Club Stance

  1. 1. Were the club right to complain about the fixture list?

    • Yes - We're being compromised financially and given a sporting disadvantage
    • No - Rangers & Celtic are no different to any other club when it comes to fixtures

Thing is there changing to Friday night would that not be worse for Aberdeen fans I'm sure both clubs will discuss and do what they think is best for the fans but to be honest I've no idea what that is

Surprised that all the xmas eve fixtures are not at 1pm or something. Still a chance it could get moved to Friday night or sat lunchtime for tv. Only game likely to be picked is us or Accies v Celtic...maybe both.

 

 

Smart man :lol:

There should be a decent atmosphere regardless of what Aberdeen bring.

 

They haven't been bringing a big support regularly for a while now. It'll be interesting to see how many Hearts bring next Friday.

Hamilton v Motherwell on Hogmanay now kicking off at 1pm rather than 3pm.

Head to head with the old firm game on the tv. Not sure what if any impact that will have on the attendance.

None I would hope. If folk stay home to watch another SPFL team, be it Centicing or Rangers or anyone, then we really are fighting a losing battle.

Agree, but a lot of folk would've watched that on tv before heading along. Won't have a great affect on our travelling support I wouldn't imagine, more likely to affect the home gate, with casual/neutral punters giving it a miss. (I think accies pick up a bit of support through their kids teams etc.)

 

Point I'm making is, it gives folk an excuse not to go, in a climate where we should be doing everything to get folk in grounds.

The police probably don't want our fans coming out to the Peacock Cross area at 5PM.

 

It's usually bedlam up there after an Old Firm match.

Most of the welcoming committee at the train station are more comfortable in green and white rather than red and white.

7 games in December, 4 of them away, anything else to spend your money on that month?

I didn't realise that.

 

Absolutely mental!

You can see why the club has needed short term loans from the Well Society at the beginning of the year when we can have a shortage of games in January.
