Duncan Shearer Autobiography...


Recommended Posts

 

Interesting stuff.  I wonder if he mentions claiming the match ball after scoring a hat-trick in a preseason match at Brechin. Normally it wouldn't bother me but I won the fucking thing in the half-time draw! Had to make do with a shitey Brechin City FC football instead.

I wonder if the final chapter will explain why he appears to have put on 5 stone since hanging up his boots!

Quite an interesting read so far, he certainly doesn't like John Inglis!  ;D

 

What I found strange was that Big Dunc says he's never been one for getting boozed up but his book is full of incidents where he's got hammered / missed training / been late etc...  ???

 

When he recalled the goals scored for himself, Mixu, Booth and Jess in his first season with us, I nearly wept.  We can't even get one striker to get near the figures that four of them managed in one season!  :hammer:

My old flatmate in Edinburgh is a hun. She always brings up the story of how she was in Franklyn's Piano Bar in Aberdeen in the late 90s, and snogged Duncan Shearer. She woke up the next morning with a huge cold-sore on her lip.

 

Nice one Shearer. Spreading herpes amongst the huns since 1992

Almost finished this book.  Interesting that when he talks about clearing out the deadwood when he and Pele arrive at the Dons, it is Bisconti and Guntveit that are getting the criticism.  Bisconti in particular looked very uninterested by the sounds of things.

Guntveit moved to Brann four months before Pele and Shearer were appointed.

 

As for Bisconti, the problems with him and his French-speaking kids had already been rumbling on long before the new management team arrived. As with most of the squad that Pele inherited, Bisco was at his best in the 01-02 season where he commanded the midfield in such a way that he even made Darren Young look like a footballer
