Aberdeen looking for a seventh successive win.  This is exactly the type of game Motherwell will......

In the league, Aberdeen have had four 1 - 0 games and one 2 - 1 game. So not expecting a goal fest.

1. Surprise us all with a brilliant performance and win?

2.. keep it solid at the back and earn a point?

3. Or play  like we have been in recent weeks, no cutting edge up front but still be in the game late on and then feck it up  and lose.

Answers on a postcard please to SR at Fir Park

I think we will win this. We have a good record against Aberdeen. Aberdeen have had a good start to the season but they are not thumping teams. 

I was reading in the transfer thread that we have no quality in the side. At the start of the season, I think we all felt that we did. Nothing had really changed (loss of Turnbull apart which was inevitable) so for me it is a lack of confidence rather than a lack of quality. Our best performance by some way was against Hibs.  I think we may do the same again. 

0-1 Motherwell and our season kicking on from there.

I don’t believe we are playing well enough to get anything from this, the best hope for me would be a 0-0. However my prediction 2-0 Aberdeen.

I’d like to see us go back to 4 at the back for this with Lamie or Mugabe making way for Hastie to come back in. Seems the perfect game for it and players will be playing for a place on Thursday. 
 

Watt and Lang scoring during the week is positive, hopefully they can both continue in a bit of form and get us some important goals.

We need to reintroduce the midfield to the flow of our game, get Polworth back on song and get him threading balls through to the attackers.  Might need someone cutting in from wide.

Game on Alba at 6pm tomorrow if anyone fancies saving the £13 PPV cost, avoiding the result and watching 'as live'.

You should also mute the unintelligible commentary and pause the programme at random intervals for that authentic streaming experience.

Judging by how shite we've been recently I fully expect us to take all three from this one. 2-1 to the good guys. :thumbup:

Any sort of defeat (other than 7-6) puts us bottom again, was expecting more from Celtic.

Aberdeen struggle for goals and McInnes is a defensive manager by nature. If we can get the first goal we can cause them a problem cos you don't see them scoring 2 or 3 very often.

However I don't see us winning the midfield battle tomorrow.  McCrorie has done well since joining and they have Lewis Ferguson and Dylan McGeouch.  Meanwhile Campbell is struggling to make the game and he basically is our midfield.

You'd probably be happy with a point but I would expect Aberdeen to grind out a result as they tend to have done this term.

Watching sportscene and Shelley Kerr has tipped us for a victory,  and if you think my patter is bad, try listening to David Currie....jeez!!

We're going to steal this one. I'll be watching it, and we always beat them at pittodrie when I watch it on a stream.

While the sheep have to be favourites given their run and home advantage I don't see this as a mountain to climb. They're not the OF or anything like it. They're big and physical, expect a lot of fouling, but they're no silky football playing goal machine. Get the first goal and this can be a good away win.

No idea what the score will be but you can guarantee we will be unentertaining. We're all about giving zero excitement - unless a Lamie pass back is considered excitement.
