Wee Al opens the scoring for Luton.

Either he's getting better at shooting or the defences in England are mince.

He scored 11 goals in his last two seasons for us ....and one of those seasons was truncated.

And his shooting was still poor to middling.

At his best, he was a 4 league goals a season kind of player,  and he's scored 3 league goals for Luton in 2022 (3 in 4 weeks in fact).

Currently watching Glentoran v Linfield on BBC NI. As well as all Manzinga, Bigi, Jake Hastie and Ben Hall in the squads (no place for Mich'el Parker tonight), Ian Baraclough is on co-comms, and Craggs is reporting from pitch side.

I see Craig Samson has registered as a keeper for Aberdeen on an emergency short-term basis and is also helping out as a coach. Another ex-keeper, Gordon Marshall, is their regular coach and out of action due to surgery.

I keep an eye on Morecambe results via Twitter. A little bit of discontent growing among their fans after they scraped a draw today vs fellow strugglers Gillingham. Hopefully Robbo can save them from relegation but they seem to be tired of the same issues in their squad and the same post match interview over and over again.

Does not matter what team it is or who the manager is  if they are on a bad run you get the same media interviews, we need to work  hard, get back to basics, proud of my players etc they must all learn it on their UEFA Pro license courses

With the exceptions of Turnbull and Watt (so far anyway), who was the last player to leave us for a rival SPFL team that has made a lasting impact for their club or bettered themselves? 

You look at St Mirren with Tait and Dunne, plus Main and Erwin via other clubs, and you'd be hard pushed to say any of them are making the Buddies better. Main's time at Aberdeen was far less impactful than his time with us. Going by Wikipedia, he scored more for The Well than Dons and St Mirren combined so far.

Would you need to go as far back as McDonald going to Celtic?

thats a brilliant question, not many have left in their prime and stayed north of the boarder - most have headed back down South. 

Perhaps Cadden who's taken an indirect route .

Remember Steven Craig leaving us for Aberdeen and him saying that he would be able to pull more birds in Magaluf or somewhere because Aberdeen were much better known than Motherwell were? :lol:

I don’t know how he got on in Magaluf but he did very little with Aberdeen!

Derek Adams sacked as manager of Bradford City. He had done well getting Morecambe promoted last season from League Two, perhaps surprising he stayed in the same league to take the Bradford gig but he probably felt he could have achieved more at Valley Parade.

Must be a favourite for the Aberdeen job now.

He obviously did, or she'd not be pregnant.

Gallagher subbed off at half time in Aberdeen v St Johnstone.  (It's a proper shit fest of a game).

St Johnstone are bloody awful.

Shite, they changed tactics at HT and opted to play Broon in defence instead. He however went off injured later in the game.

Mark McGhee the new "surprise favourite" for the Dundee job.

He must be needing the air miles.

McPake beat Hearts at Tynecastle and took them into the quarters of the Scottish Cup, only to be sacked. Dundee were clearly behind his back looking for a new manager. Despicable behaviour, hope they go down for a while.
