There's a time to be humble, to not gloat, to be self-deprecating, to shrug the shoulders apologetically and apologise for not doing what everybody expects; a time to remember that pride goes before a fall, to consider the feelings of others and refrain from crowing.
This isnae wan o' them, though!!!
Aberdeen 4 F C Copenhagen 0
At the end of a glorious evening of solidarity with the Dons, exhausted by the emotional and physical cost of kicking every ball (while lying supine on the sofa, occasionally hiding behind a cushion) we emerge not only as winners, but 4 -0. Christmas will be an anti-climax now, unless somebody can think opf something better than 4-0!
Anyway, not to go on about it, but I would like to place on record my appreciation for the efforts of the Aberdeen team this evening, my admiration for their earnest endeavours, my complete endorsement of their tactical awareness, and my absolute incredulity that when I play back the recording there are indeed four goals and I wasn't dreaming. So, to avoid being tediously repetitive, if I may reiterate briefly.....4-0!!!!!!!!!
Best corny line from the commentary: referring to the AFC management team, "There's the three wise men - Jimmy Calderwood, Jimmy Nicholl and Sandy Clark - and they're looking for a star tonight!"
Time to say my evening prayers, which tonight will be 4 thanksgivings and 0 complaints. 4-0, get it?
