  2. Did David Hagen not pass away year or so ago from same thing as Fernando Ricksen??
  3. Mind being down at Stranraer for a League Cup tie during Leigh Hinds time with us when the extremely annoying chant about him was " Leigh Hinds is going to chib you" in reference to him having allegedly battered ex Hun David Hagen over the head with a bottle.
  4. I think at least half of the pub quizzes I've ever entered have ended like this. Two of my mates came to blows once because one of them thought Greg Rusedski won the US Open.
  5. Any truth in the story doing the rounds that Uefa have cancelled this season's Champions League competition and just awarded the trophy to The Huns following their victory yesterday ?
  6. I can remember the Merkland stand used to have benches, I seem to recall sitting on those when I first went to Pittodrie as a bairn.
  7. As I understand it Clydebank's method of making Kilbowie 'all-seater' was to remove the terracing barriers and bolt down old railway sleepers to form benches. The dons on the other hand went for individual seats Personally I think Clydebank's method looks more like something designed to help short people see over the top of the taller folk standing infront of them. Standing on a flip down plastic seat is a bit tricker.
  8. I once nearly started a fight between a guy and the Quiz Master in my local pub. The question was; "What football club became the first all seater stadium in the UK?" Obviously it is us. However a lad taking part was adamant it was Clydebank. I was in the same team as this man and did tell him it was my team but I got out voted by rest of team who thought because he was much more older than me would know more regarding football history so we wrote down Clydebank. He's a Hibernian supporter so I've forgiven him now. When Quiz Master read out 'Aberdeen' as answer to question there was an argument ensued which must have lasted like ten to fifteen minutes.
  9. Not so much of being tripped up but rather another incident where the quiz master was misinformed. Ended up taking part in a quiz night organised by Aberdeen Uni Medical students (was promised they wouldn't had lots of medical questions - lies!!!) and in the sports round they asked who had scored Aberdeen's goal at the weekend and being the only football fan in the team I put down Alexander Diamond. Think a few others put this answer down as the quiz master took it upon himself to announce anyone who put down Alexander wouldnt get the points as Diamonds first name was 'Zander' After that I stopped feeling uneasy that our team name was 'The Harold Shipman Appreciation Society'
  10. Olympic football has been really entertaining so far

    Queensland gets good press here, probably Vic slightly less so but I think they along with the SA premiers seem to have done a good job. People first and economies will follow strategy has paid off, certainly has for NZ with ours being stronger than pre covid levels now. Of course no one can afford to buy now but hey Ho
  12. How tha fuck did the Huns beat Real Madrid????????
  13. Most embarrassing one for me was occurred at a pub quiz in Weeg. Question was what was score in Aberdeen’s 1983 cup winners cup success and for bonus points who were the scorers. Had a total blank on Black being first scorer. Rest of team knew and not one was a Dons fan. Very embarrassing.
  14. Thinking about Calvin Ramsay making that European debut last Thursday night. The 5,665 permitted crowd for said game was crap beyond belief which is being nice. But so happy he, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas plus Christian Ramirez they had a support of sort in Pittodrie regarding their continental debut which should be treated very preciously where I'm concerned. Just wonder twenty five year from now if our No.22 might have his name forgotten when asking; "Name your Aberdeen right back who while earning first Europa Conference League start at 17 year old shone against Swedish side BK Hacken?" Any other Dandy related question folk would trip up on??
  15. Yesterday
  16. Away to Raith Rovers in the League Cup on either 14th or 15th August (Barring a complete collapse in Sweden it will be the latter)
  17. Japan pull off shock and beat Mexico 2-1 in Olympic tournament. Mexico were reduced to 10 men. Germany were reduced to 10 men for 2nd game in a row but managed to beat Saudis 3-2

    Hey mate Totally agree with you there. I like Dan Andrews. Scomo should be replaced and I feel he has failed Australians. The NRL debacle is a disgrace!! And as far as these selfish dickheads protesting, I hope every one of them suffer from really bad covid symptoms...not die...but suffer badly. I have zero guilt about saying that.

    They even had a protest march here in Mackay.

    I have to say that the Queensland premier has been really good. She's not been scared to put the state into lock down and we have had (so far...) low numbers of infection. Dan Andrews in Victoria has done well considering he was really unwell for a while. I would like to see him as PM one day.

    HaarDon and Manic have pretty much nailed it on the head. I think a lot of Australians have had the mind set that what has happened in the UK could never happen here. But with this new Delta variant now spreading around the southern states I think many here will be in for a big shock.
  22. Last week
  23. Hacken look to appease fans Hacken have signed fans hero Nasiru Mohammed in a bid to win back supporters, writes Mark Walker. The Swedes were blown away by the rampant Dons in the second qualifying round first leg as they crashed to a 5-1 defeat at Pittodrie. They appear to be as good as out of the competition, but they have moved to bring back Ghana international winger Mohammed to the club after a spell in Bulgaria with Levski Sofia. The 27-year-old made over 200 appearances with the club in an eight-spell at the Gothenburg outfit and is delighted to have returned to Swedish football.

    Fuck the rugby league!!
  25. Kiwi's and Aussies pulling out of the Rugby league world cup says quite a bit. Equivalent of Brazil, Germany, Italy, Argentina, France & Spain all pulling out of the Qatar world cup
  26. Gallagher came off the bench in Forfar's 5-2 defeat by Dundee. Hernandez started at left back for Atlanta in tonight’s game against Colombus. Currently 0-0 at half time.

    Coronavirus

    Certainly most folk here think the UK are on a suicide run. Whilst our vaccination progress has been slow (due to unavailability and sticking with Pfeizer) most people think that our govt have taken the right approach. No one I know envies the UK right now. It's also worth noting that whilst Ozzie have lockdowns at the mo, Sydney's premier is the least sensible of the lot so it's hardly surprising they're fucked.
  28. Think McGeouch could actually be an important player this season. Before Glass took over I was reading some American blogs to try and get a handle on how he liked to set up, and it appeared he was a big fan of one guy dropping deep and picking the ball up from defence. That was very much what Brown did against Hacken, at times playing centre of a back three, then pushing into midfield. Brown though I doubt will play 40-50 games this season, certainly not the full 90 minutes. It'll be a big ask to play 2-3 times a week, which at times we'll have to do. So he needs a back-up for that role. McCrorie possibly will be that man with Gallagher partnership Considine, but it's also a role that seems to very much suit McGeouch. The jury is still out on Ojo. Glass seems to be playing him in more of a forward role which essentially means he doesn't have to do all the stuff he's crap at - tackling, heading, closing players down. The guy I wonder about now is Dean Campbell. Not a fan of shipping players off on loan as I prefer they learn how to play in our system, but I don't know where we play him and Jenks coming in on loan pushes him further down the pecking order.
