Mental Maribor Memories 2022

Recommended Posts

I was reminded on Facebook earlier in week of below experience when coming up for Maribor game at Pittodrie.  Totally destroyed me all over again.


Posted July 2016 on our timeline.

The one thing I always remember about this game is how after Maribor scored around 83rd minute for a narrow lead we closed our eyes and spoke with Mam who had passed just over three years at said point then spoke following to her;

"Come on Mam I've not made all this effort up on train today to see us get beat give us a goal."

Five minutes later we drew level yet unquestionably deserved our draw that evening.  These European games so soon on from one dying totally helped me through some pretty dark times.  I would look up while jumping into bed in Premier Inn before blowing a kiss commenting;

"Hope you enjoyed tonight."

However whilst grabbing some grub before train home on Friday yours truly experienced something rather WEIRD!!!  Totally enjoying one's food Frankie & Benny style we'd CONVINCED myself Mam had started talking to me.

Obviously sat alone at some two seated table Lee DEFINITELY heard following;

"Hello Son, you alright?"

I then looked up from plate despite rucksack staring straight back replying;

"Yeah, I'm doing fine Mam!"

Took three or four seconds as reality dawned she wasn't actually present.  Foreign waitress came across room asking;

"Are you OK Sir?"


"Yes, I'll be super duper soon thanks."

Her voice CRYSTAL CLEAR is what's ******* us over right now.
