Got the 6-2 match on video, fuckunh great stuff! Bett and Toss on the touchline is class, Toss gives Bett some attention only for Jazzer to fling him arse over tit and punt the divot from the tackle at the cunt! Class!

One player I always wish I had seen play in the flesh. When I was younger and used to watch my dads old vhs' of the 80's etc he just looked like a rubbish porn star, with that tasche. Now i'm a bit older and appreciate the game more, some of the passes and free kicks he scored (one at Ibrox in particular) were incredible and if we had a player like that today he'd be worth millions.

Jim Bett was a sublime footballer. I remember one 40 odd yard pass to big Mixu at Parkhead which Mixu duly scored. Mixu had nothing much to do, such was the quality of the pass. But that Hearts game was a wee cameo of Jazzer of old, tough as old boots and playing great passes bringing the younger legs like Jess and Wright into the game. Brilliant player.

It doesn't sound much, but to have two of Jess, Booth (pre injury), Gilhaus, Bett or Mason. I think we'd be contending for the title. I spoke to my dad about my first season at Pittodrie, 1994-1995. Just avoided relegation with a phenomenal end of season run, but i'd gladly swap that team for this one!

Just think, Bett to partner yon Mark Kerr, and Jess playing off Lee Miller. Title would be ours without a shadow of a doubt.

He was a cracking player, used to take corners from both sides, using his right or left... how many players nowadays could do that?

I remember going to a lot of games late 80's, early 90's and Jazzer used to take a bit of a doing from the fans at times, mainly cos he came across as a bit lazy as he had a very languid playing and running style. Mackie should maybe keep that in mind ;)

 

The midfield partnership of him and Grant was the best I've seen at Pittodrie, absolutely perfect foils for each other. They could both pass and could both tackle, Bett obviously the silkier of the two.  Add into that Paul Mason and guys like Gillhaus, Nicholas, Jess, Booth and Shearer at different times ahead of them... I'd give my right nut for that now.

I was going to say just that.

 

He was booed rotten every time he kicked the ball on his debut, heard his young family was reduced to tears in the stand.  Seem to remember he then pinged in a volley straight from a corner kick then followed it up again shortly after with another.

 

Boo boys eh.  ::)

Brilliant find, the game that was called off was hilarious, made all the better by Lambie coming out before kick off at the replay waving the offending brush around like some sort of trophy. Pigeon shagging wanker.

 

Hilarious!

 

Got the Airdrie 7 scud game on video along with the Eoin Jess show against Falkirk the same season.

 

Had Shearer not picked up a knee injury against Hearts that day I could have seen us a lot closer at the end of that season.

 

One guy conspicuous by his absence of mention from this period is Lee Richardson. He was a damn good player. Couldn't lace Jazzers boots but no many could.

 

AFC fans, fucking brilliant eh?

Lovely passer of the ball, bit of a hard nut, scored a fair few goals, hated the huns, loved Genesis. Still, 4 out of 5 aint bad, eh?

 

The tackle that led to his red card v the huns at Pittodrie was a thing of beauty.  Also remember him scoring a last minute winner at Dens when we were right on the tails of the huns, Dens was packed with Dandies... the place was rocking when that went in, one of my favourite moments of that 92-93 season.

Just as im getting on a bit can i ask if Bett was in the same team as Bobby Connor or was that later...

I mind Connor got dogs abuse in the Northern Light and had a section called bobbies blouse about him.

 

 

 

Yeah, he was. Midfield was generally Connor on the left, Bett and Grant in the middle, Mason on the right. Connor infuriated me at the time, and he got a lot of stick from the fans too. I've actually got a game on tape against Hibs at home and Connor is booed by the Dons fans every time he gets the ball.  He was a skillful player but he was a pansy, hence the Bobby's Blouse thing in the Northern Light.

Yeah, Clark was very reminiscent of Connor, I liked Connor as it goes, another very good player and unfairly treated by a lot of Dons fans.

 

What a midfield that was.
