If somebody was to ask you this question right now what would you say??

I'd have to say Barry Nicholson drawing one level deep into stoppage time at Tynecastle to basically see us qualified for Europe during season 2006-07.  I attended this match and I've not felt a celebration so crazy that afternoon in ages.  Craig Brewster's ball across goal literally felt as if took an Iron Age to find Bazza!! Still today feels very much 'slow motion' like when watching it on TV!!

Eric Black hat trick at park head, feb 1983. Pasting Rangers at pittodrie 5-1, then Frank smashing four past Celtic. Many good childhood memories!

getting taken to match for first time, we were in the stand can't remember who we were playing or any of the game. Just remember some guy running down the stairs at half time and then getting grabbed by the police, I never saw him do it but it turns out he threw a pie at one of the players    happy days

That wasn't from the Merkland and it hit Hugh Dallas at a corner (might have been against the huns) and he went down like it was a small building had fell on him?

The one I (vaguely) remember would have been early 90's. There were a few coins going over but it was definitely a half eaten pie that hit Dallas.

Lee Richardson's goal against Torino was first thing that popped into my head on reading the question. No idea why.

That was my second thought. Was because I was sitting right behind it. That should be seabass's next thread: which goals were you perfectly positioned to see? Mine wid be Rico's v Torino, Zero's vs St Mirren and Maddison v the huns. Right in line with the top corner of the goals on all of them. Sort of.

Anyway, I have the amazing ability to think of many at the same time. First wid be thon diving cunt McCoist and his diving though. Second wid be the 6-2 game against Hertz. Also the one you mention and fourthly - for some weird reason - Shug Robertson's two identical screamers within a few wiks of one another (hertz and Falkirk maybe? Or Dundee?). 

Edit: I realise this post makes no sense. It's cool. I'm aware.

The sheer noise a few minutes after Hewitt’s winner against Bayern.

Obviously it was bedlam in the immediate aftermath......”Pittodrie goes berserk” as Jock Brown put it

But my abiding memory is the racket that built up over the next few minutes. Initially different sections were singing different songs , but gradually onee song built up louder and louder with the different sections joining in until the whole stadium was belting out “Here we go !” Here we go !”. Even the likes o my old man .

I’ve never heard anything like that before or since. The atmosphere literally , and I mean literally , crackled . Like a thunderclap or a sonic boom

The hairs on the back of my neck are standing up even now as I think about it

First five minutes of Cup Winners Cup Semi-Final v Waterschei S.V Thor Genk.

Simply the first time I believed we could actually win a European trophy.  :thumbsup:

Impossible question to answer as I immediately think too hard.

I've no memory of my "1st game" as I always went to Pittodrie.
My father took me to all the reserve games from the age of three ( or whatever) and I honestly don't remember when that changed to every week.
I must have been young though because I do remember all the whisky drams being lined up on the bar at the back of the main stand.

I've been lucky enough to witness most of the great times but sometimes it's the sheer cameradity of being a Dons fan that stands out.

I'm going to go for a defeat at Easter Road.
Getting dark, superb atmosphere.
The match when Snelders got sent off, I think they are still waiting for that ball to return to earth.




Irvine saved the penalty if I remember correctly.

Doubt it.
 ;D

Like me you didn't read the question correctly. He didn't ask about our first game. He asked about which memory first springs to mind. And "always went to Pittodrie" doesn't disqualify you from answering the question we thought we read ye neep. Sober up ye cunt  :wave:
