    I remember that it was a bitter pill for some especially Thistle who quite rightly saw it as a takeover. I used to watch Thistle on the odd occasion back in the day.

    i was only 6/7 when fergie left to go to manure, i'm glad in a way as Aberdeen were definately punching above their weight back then, so i've never had the same expectations as some of the older fans. i am old enough to at least remember us being able to challenge for the league title and cup competitions, as i stated on a previous post it is now 18 years since we last won a senior domestic trophy. fingers crossed that this season will be the one, we're in the semi's of the league cup just now and are favourites to win it as celtic have already been knocked out, but knowing aberdeen we'll no doubt F*** it up

    He was a talented coach with a good bunch of players the mix was right at Aberdeen, St Mirren were so stupid in giving him the sack ooops! Aberdeen used to beat the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich..............i cant see that happening again.

    my first memory of aberdeen after getting interested in football when i was a kid, was us beating celtic in the 1990 scottish cup final on penalties, big Brian Irvine scored the winner and was therefore my hero until he retired. i was at hampden in 1995 when we beat Dundee in the coca-cola cup final, it was my 16th birthday and the last time we won anything

    Thats interesting, didnt remember that the Scottish Oil industry is based in Aberdeen, what I still remember is that its quite a nice city because of all the granite buildings. :)
    Btw - house prices in Hamburg are crazy as well, thats why I'm living a short drive outside of Hamburg.
    Whisky country sounds good, have you already visited some distilleries, any recommendations for Whiskies I should
    try ? ;)

    Another 04:45 wake up time for Bundesbiers on New Years Day. :sleep::eek:

    Fulham and West Ham battling in the bottom 3.

    Getting close at the top. No team can afford to falter much.

    First - Happy New Year Everyone ! / Frohes Neues Jahr :tup:

    Looking forward to another football afternoon on my sofa.
    They will air three games on German TV:
    Swansea - City, Arsenal - Cardiff and ManU-Spurs.
    Instead Arsenal I would prefer to watch Chelsea at Southampton or Fulham against West Ham but it seems
    the air Arsenal every time no matter who they play:rolleyes:

    Indeed a good 2014 to all! :)
    If it wears Red they the TV company shows the game as the main feature. Manure, Scouse, Arse anything else is almost beneath them......:rolleyes::tdown:
