There is no particular criteria chosen by me where the list is concerned they have probably at some point or another given me joy while watching my team play Live.

No Alex McLeish, yet Gary Smith gets in?

No Hans Gillhaus? Scott Booth? Joe Miller (loved wee Joe as a kid). Stephen Glass?

Indeed. Some glaring admissions.
Loved Booth.

We are not going on how well the player did for us just those who left a lasting impression on me in some way.

Kowalski,
              We had a game at Firhill against Partick Thistle and while waiting to go in stadium John Inglis walked towards myself, step-father and younger brother Paul.  I somehow nicked another fan's pen to go get him to sign my programme.  We said;

"John, can you sign this please your my favourite player?"

As he finished signing programme he turned round while walking away and said;

"So why have you got Gary Smith's name on the back of your shirt then?"

Our reply;

"My Mam is washing the home strip your name is on but this blue and gold striped one was always going to have Gary's name on it especially given Brian Irvine might eventually leave us."

Always wanted to be an Aberdeen defender and haven't really been that taken with any of our central defenders since Irvine, Inglis, Smith left maybe other than Kari Arnason. 

Drew 2-2 that day and blew a 2-0 half-time lead if memory serves us right.

Grant, Jess and Shearer. I loved Grant did so much of the simple stuff that allowed our forwards to shine and boy did we have some great attackers late 80s to early 90s.

Past 25  or the dark years, my favourite 3 would be Hayes, Shinnie and Rooney.

Anderson, shearer and Jess for me.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

Eoin, Theo and Hicham.

I didn't use their first names from any sense of familiarity. Not met any of them. Just thought they would be instantly recognisable from their first names. Plus shorter and less typing. And then I followed it by scribing all this shite. Doh 😣

Snelders, Rico and Jess. Legends......

Honourable mentions to Severin (for sticking it out in a side that was frankly dreadful), Gillhaus (for the best debut I have had the privilege to have witnessed) and Shinnie (made up for only having a limited amount of ability with sheer drive and guts)

I met the former two. Eoin was our neighbour in Bridge of Don and he was a gent. Dealt with us (local kids who were massive fans) really patiently. Theo was a grumpy cunt. Both cracking players though which is what was most important.

Based on who I grew up on - Jess, Joe Miller, and Hans.

Honourable mentions for Rico and Shinnie.

Meant to vote for Snelders, Grant and Jess but my fat fingers mean Rooney has a vote.

I'm actually amazed Billy Dodds nor Arild Stavrum have registered vote yet given I suggested a 'Top Three'.

Theo, Anderson, McGinn, Shearer, Jess, Zero and Seve would all get my vote before Dodd’s or Stavrjm, others too. Don’t see why you would vote for those two.

Dodds was excellent for us but I suspect him joining der Hun later in his career (we all knew he was one) would likely cost him votes from people maybe considering him. Stavrum just wasn't with us long enough although his goalscoring record in a shitty side was admirable.
