How Crap Were We?

I`ve been thinking a lot about my first real Euro adventure and have started writing a short story about it.  OK we only made the Last 32 but the 'quality opposition' which came to Pittodrie and didn`t beat us on our own patch surprised me.  Why?  Because back in the 90`s we ended up on the wrong side of some embarrassing scorelines against in my opinion pretty shocking teams whilst at home.  Skonto Riga, Zalgris Vilnius, Bohemians to name just a few.  Should even have had the beating of Torino as I wasn`t that impressed by them either.

 

So do we just have a better calibre of player at the club now than when in the doldrums many moons ago?

 

Take Care!

Torino made the final in 1994, if I recall correctly, so they weren't that bad. they did have Carbone and Silenzi, who were shit hot at the time.

Torino went out in the next round to Arsenal who went on to win the CWC.

 

2-0 up in the 1st leg and blew it by losing 3-2.  The 2nd leg was a fantastic atmosphere if I remember correctly, again we were winning 1-0, Rico screamer, only to lose the match 2-1.
