Aberdeen’s third European final in a row – what if?

On the 16th of May 1984 Aberdeen should have played in The Cup Winners’ Cup final in Basel against Juventus. This didn’t happen as Aberdeen were cheated by Porto in the semi final. Porto bribed the referee, and were later convicted and punished for it. Fernando Barata, the former coach of first division side Farense, […]

A happy-clappy post Gothenburg meme dump

Not been a lot of football matches to react to the last couple of months, but that didn’t stop me. Scottish football’s been behaving up to it’s usual standards. As well as the potential liquidation for a good number of clubs, a certain ‘in a row’ appears to be a catalyst for a certain amount […]

The Dandy Dons Season 2019-20 awards

So the season appears to be over, subject to the shit show that passes for the governing body of Scottish football changing their minds, so this leads to, who gets the awards for season 2019-2020? Do you remember the season? All I can remember is the chat with the pigeons on my balcony this morning. […]

Secret Aberdeen footballer diary – part 3

Monday Hair has become an issue. Gave myself a number one buzz cut. Looking proper menacing, and considering a neck tattoo when all this is over to finish the badass look off.

Aberdeen FC and football moving forwards

These are very unusual times we are living in. Despite what Bill Shankly’s quote says football is pretty insignificant in the scheme of things. Dave Cormack appears the perfect person to be in charge of the club at this time, so we can all chill out a bit about Afc’s survival. But looking at football […]

Colouring in for Aberdeen supporters

For homeschooling or if you are bored, Aberdeen FC colouring-in artwork. Print out or take them into a drawing/colouring app in an iPad. The images are transparent pngs, so if your drawing app has layers, put it on the top layer, then colour-in on the layer underneath.

Just one game, and nothing else

Big game Saturday v Kilmarnock. Maybe the biggest game of Derek McInnes entire Aberdeen career. Don’t want to up the pressure any further, but don’t think it can be upped any more. And I didn’t build the pressure to start with, so, don’t blame me. But why is it so big? Where are the pressures? […]
