As the decade comes to an end, we've already been chipping in with our "Team Of The Decade" on another thread. It's been quite easy to pick a team of the decade as the real shining lights of AFC are pretty unanymous. However, do you think you can create a Shittest Team Of The Decade? The rules are you can ONLY select one player, one moment, and one starting-eleven for the below categories. This is gonna be tough!

 

Worst Aberdeen Player of the Decade:

 

Worst homegrown player:

 

Worst signing:

 

Worst goalkeeper:

 

Worst defender:

 

Worst midfielder:

 

Worst forward:

 

Worst manager:

I'll start ...

 

Worst Aberdeen Player of the Decade: Got to be Zdrillic. Never has so much hope drained away so quickly. Utterly disappointing

 

Worst homegrown player: Darren Mackie - there's been a few, but how four sets of managers have seen an SPL quality in him, I'll never know!

 

Worst signing: Tommy Wright

 

Worst goalkeeper: Bertrand Bossu

 

Worst defender: Jamie McQuilken

 

Worst midfielder: Scott Muirhead

 

Worst forward: Bryan Prunty

 

Worst manager: Steve Paterson

 

Pick your worst starting XI from the decade:

McQuilken, Rutkiewicz, Solberg, Lilley;

Muirhead, Darren Young, Thornley, Fabiano;

Worst Game of the Decade: Queen of the South, Queens Park or Sigma games are all still sore points but there have been others I am sure that drink has now thankfully blanked from my mind. Vaugely remember a 6-1 humping from Livi for example. 

 

Biggest single disappointment of the decade: Same as original thread no trophies.

What a contradiction in terms that is.  He's our worst homegrown player but four managers have seen quality in him?  ???

I think you are forgetting some of the real shockers we've brought through only for them to end up at Peterhead or Inverurie Locos.

If Carlsberg set questions with so many correct answers to choose from...

 

Worst Aberdeen Player of the Decade: Thornley

 

Worst homegrown player: Ross O'Donoghue? Scott Muirhead?? Scott Morrison??? Jon Stewart???? David Donald?????

 

Worst signing:Did we not pay £50k for Byrne? Although we also paid money for McQuilken and Lee Hinds. Tommy Wright has to be up there.

 

Worst goalkeeper:Bossu

 

Worst defender: Dan Smith

 

Worst midfielder: Jamie Winter

 

Worst forward: Stephen Craig

 

Worst manager: Pele. Although (just for MiniJC) statistically it's McGhee.

 

Pick your worst starting XI from the decade:

 

-----------Bossu-------------

-McQuilken-Lilley-Bus-D.Smith-

--Thornley-Winter-Muirhead---

---Kristjansson-Craig-Blaha----

 

Worst Game of the Decade: Loads of obvious ones, but ones that I was present at... There was one New Years game against Kilmarnock under Pele that we were absolutely woeful in I think we won but a worse game of football I have never witnessed. I think the highlight may have been Shearer trying to lay the nut on the ref.

 

Biggest single disappointment of the decade: The whole thing.

Not wanting to split hairs or anything but why does nearly everyone have McQuilken at right back?  I thought he played left back for us?

 

Your probably right, but with so many choices at left back...

 

The only position with a bigger pool of players would have been up front, I was tempted to go for an Ardilles-esque 1 -10 formation.

I don't think I can even bring myself to put up a shite team of the decade. There have been soooo many! But I'll give it a go.

 

Worst Aberdeen Player of the Decade: Hmmm....Thornley

 

Worst homegrown player: As per Baggy. Ross O'Donoghue? Scott Muirhead?? Scott Morrison??? Jon Stewart???? David Donald?????

 

Worst signing: Hinds...Wright...Bus....Kristjansson

 

Worst goalkeeper: Bossu

 

Worst defender: Dan Smith

 

Worst midfielder: Thornley

 

Worst forward: Blaha...

 

Worst manager: Pele. Though we're hardly setting the heather alight right now.

 

Pick your worst starting XI from the decade:

 

-----------Bossu-------------

-McQuilken-Lilley-Bus-D.Smith-

--Thornley-Tiernan-Muirhead---

Worst Game of the Decade: Christ, where to start...Livi (how many times?) Most cup games under JC.

 

Biggest single disappointment of the decade: Agree with Baggy The whole thing.

(Would have had both Paatelainens in there, but did they ever play?)

 

Sorry forgot: Worst game...Bohemian 1-2 at home in 2000    The start of a decade of embarassment

Agree with minijc I liked Dempsey and Karim. Neither Paatelainen brother played, but neither did Gillies in this decade. Also I thought Pasquinelli looked decent maybe if he hadn't got injured so early in his Aberdeen career my opinion may not have been such. I also don't understand the dislike of Cobain (also ally s) another who was blighted by injury and incidentally did not actually play for us in the "Noughties".

 

Sorry to pick holes, nae offence, just waiting to get home.

According to soccerbase and Wiki Cobian was an Aberdeen player until the end of the 99/00 season.

 

I'll have re-think on my right back though as he didn't appear to play for us in the 00s.

 

Edit: Changed it to Stephen Payne

Worst Aberdeen Player of the Decade: Bryan Prunty. The worst player I've ever seen pull on a red shirt (I'm not counting guys who played one game then we never saw again). Utter fucking ding.

 

Worst homegrown player: Scott Muirhead. Lanky streak of pish was how I described him on his debut and he never did anything to make me change my mind.

 

Worst signing: should really be Prunty as per my first answer, but for the money spent and the perserverance with actually playing the guy, I'll say Richie Byrne.

 

Worst goalkeeper: Bossu

 

Worst defender: McQuilken

 

Worst midfielder: Muirhead

 

Worst forward: Prunty

 

Worst manager: Paterson

 

Pick your worst starting XI from the decade:

 

Bossu

McNamara Byrne Lilley McQuilken

Muirhead  Winter  Fabiano

Prunty Mike D'Jaffo

 

Worst Game of the Decade: QotS, felt physically sick after that. Some of the other heavy defeats in the early part of the decade were hard to take but not altogether surprising.  QotS was unexpected and was pretty monumental.  You could go on for ages with the "if onlys..."

 

Biggest single disappointment of the decade:  Will have to go with Baggy on this one... the whole rotten saga.
