    it's embarassing really, pissed up blokes in germany sining about shooting down bombers, heard one chant once that went 'my grandad killed your grandad', luckily we're not all complete idiots, you root for any scottish team? i personally root for anyone other then Rangers or Celtic

    They are just brainless fools that have no idea what they are saying, it was really cringeworthy seeing them sing that in Munich before the CLF in 2012. However they are small minority every club has them. Dont get me started on Rangers or Celtic i dont like either of them i also like Ross County as they are my nearest League team. :)

    well our economy is really still tied into the UK economy. but there has been a lot said from the doom and gloom merchants about how scotlands economy wouldn't survive if we got independence. but i don't really want to get into this kind of thing cos a) i don't know enough about it, b) i hate politics with a passion.

    with the oil industry in Aberdeen, then the local economy is always what they class as booming, house prices here are crazy, and i think we're in the top 5 most expensive cities in the UK to live

    the best thing about living here is going for a drive for maybe 30-40 minutes and your out in the country right in the heart of whisky country, ye can't beat it

    O.K...again at the office until 1 pm and just to kill some time me and my colleagues doing a very traditional thing for this day and part of the country - having some "Berliner" together and wishing everybody good luck for 2014.
    We had this before here in one of the other threads - people from Berlin dont call it Berliner, but we do :p
    Its kind of a doughnut filled with marmalade and if you do have bad luck you get one with mustard, disgusting :eek:
    But you dont know until you have tried it. :D

    You're right, that has been more than 30 years ago in 1983. ;)
    Since then we didnt win anything except the German DFB Cup in 1987 :rolleyes:
    Our former player Mark McGhee was signed from Aberdeen as much as I remember. Didnt he play for Aberdeen before he joined us ? :cautious:

    You're right it was 1983, i'm lucky that i'm not old enough to remember those days. the last time Aberdeen won anything was on my 16th birthday. i'm now 34!!

    yes mark Mcghee, did play for Aberdeen before Hamburg, he actually scored against Hamburg in the second leg of the super cup final at pittodrie
