GREG landed a winning Nap on Saturday and was looking to make it three in a row today – by going against his own team.
He reckoned his beloved St Johnstone would have struggles against Aberdeen but we’ll never know as the match was off. In fact Greg also suggested it was under threat so if his naps dry up he could turn his hand to weather forecasting.
Here was the write-up that means nothing now.
St Johnstone v Aberdeen (OFF)
Despite hammering Aberdeen 5-1 at Pittodrie the last time the sides met, fortunes have changed since then, we are now without a win in 3 and have failed to score in those matches while Aberdeen have the chance to join Celtic at the top of the league. Our problem is we can’t keep a clean sheet, the amount of silly goals we lose is unacceptable (just two clean sheets in 20+ matches) – whilst we didn’t play that badly against Motherwell on Wednesday, we lost another two poor goals. Losing our best two players so far this season after 30 mins to injury didn’t help but over the piece Well deserved their win. The Dons have quality right through their ranks and if McGinn, Hayes and Rooney are on song it could be another frustrating day for us. There is absolutely no way we’ll keep a clean sheet tomorrow. We’ll concede and need to score at least two to win the match. That was fine when we were firing on all cylinders but that we’ve lost that magic touch in front of goal recently and I fear it will be the same again here with the dons being more clinical. Around 3000+ Aberdeen fans are making the journey, I hope to see a defeat but my head says otherwise.
You can back Aberdeen at 6-5 just to win, was torn between the two but opting for goals.
Back Aberdeen over 1.5 team goals (5-4, Coral) (NAP)
