Breaking Glass, Frankenstein’s monster and the Romanov era

Aberdeen FC are currently at a crossroads. The McInnes era has ended, and the Glass era is just beginning. Now we as football supporters must patiently await what will happen, while giving complete backing to the management team, new players and the Chairman. You’d think that wouldn’t you. And then in a complete change from […]

Wishing Glass well and healthy scepticism

I’m an Aberdeen supporter. Would I ever want the team to not do well? Of course not.

Would I happily start making Stephen Glass memes and […]

Meanwhile at Pittodrie (Hitler Downfall parody)

There are problems down Pittodrie way. It’s now been 100,000 hours without a goal from open play from Aberdeen FC. There is bad news for ‘Hitler’. And just like every Youtube Channel, a like and Subscribe makes a huge difference, then I’ll get round to make more video content.

Coldly and cynically and expertly took us apart. And it […]

Scott Wright and Stockholm Syndrome

And quite predictably for Scottish football, another far more significant story is being missed by Scotland’s client journalism media. It appears a certain football club […]

McInnes and football managers – how to spot a good one

I quite like that we just went out in the first round of a cup. It feels so retro. So Roy Aitken. So Jimmy Calderwood. So shit managers from the past… the ghost of Aberdeen Xmas past (and perhaps future) has just visited. If there is one thing the Stewart Milne years taught me, it’s […]

Your stories on the Dons pre-1983 – a new book!

Through the Facebook page and group I asked for your stories on Gothenburg, and a lot of you did and this free download was the result. So let’s do another one as social media is particularly good for collecting stories, and none of us are getting any younger. Also perhaps a way to help get […]
