  1. Was well known there were heaps of athletic and Academical gangs running the show. in 5 years down there I was out most weeks... never saw much trouble. I put this down to most folk knowing if they started carrying on with the wrong person there was a chance they’d have a knife or gun pulled on them! Played some unbelievable athletic football teams down there! Gordon strachan was right enough with his ‘genetics’ statement! Could have done with a few of them moving to the likes of Cumbernauld or East Kilbride, rather than Nottingham and Leicester!
  2. Some absolutely class pubs down near trent bridge and the canals... was pretty tempted to stay put myself a few times!
  3. The fans are pretty similar to Aberdeen's to be fair! I used to go regularly and the parallels were uncanny sometimes. They do tend to get on players backs very quickly, like ourselves... and the groans and moans are never far away! Think they suffer from the same frustrations as ourselves, in that a section of the support can still remember the days when they were battling for the league and were conquerors of Europe. They are definitely a tough audience - expectations are high!
  4. I lived there for 5 years. It's an old mining town and isn't without it's problems, but I enjoyed my time there... quite cheap and great night out! Would have been an amazing place to live 30 years ago... The City Ground is class - one of my favourite places to watch football. Stones throw from the city centre, heaps of bars and pubs dotted around the stadium - a great atmosphere on match day!
  5. I heard about the loan, with an option to buy, offer.... however, Craig Levein was intimating this was a straight up offer. Said we rejected it as it arrived a couple of hours before the deadline and we didn't have a chance to source a replacement.
  6. On sports sound Craig Levein was claiming that Steve Bruce told him, first hand, he'd had a 6M bid turned down on the last day of the transfer window the other year, when he was at Aston Villa...
  7. Don't think either of the old firm will be interested. Both of those clubs need midfielders with a bit of guile, who can pick apart a stubborn defence. Campbell looks better suited to a scrappers league like the English Championship. I think he'll get a move down there and will probably do quite well! While we've got McCrorie and Ferguson, I don't think we'll look at Campbell! Would have loved to see McCrorie up against him! Hope McInnes unleashes that duel next time!
  8. Nice to see a few of the PG's are still alive!
  9. That was all on the East Coast last year! Mind, we're probably due a bad season over this way.... 😮
  10. 'pHat Coffee' Should definitely be on, on the Saturday... Friday will be touch and go! Nice venue for a few beers regardless! I'll be there all day on the Saturday. Blasta and The Gate, in Perth are buying a couple of kegs too... probably be in a few bottle shops in Perth too.
  11. My beer is probably being launched at Margaret River Brewhouse on that Friday! Would recommend dropping into Wild Hop or eagle bay breweries when you are in the region...
  12. Where you headed to south coast? Awesome down there... I'm headed to Esperance and Denmark for 2 weeks in Jan. Cannot wait! I'm going to be in Margs from 2nd to 4th.... kegging and canning my beer!
  13. We ain't going to be getting out of WA anytime soon.... not the worst place to be stranded in a bubble, coming into our summer!
  14. McInnes has tried for him previously... if we weren't so stacked in midfield, he's definitely be a possibility.
  15. Nothing is really clear.... McInnes claiming here that he and his team had identified Hernandez as signing. Then they spoke to Atlanta and they were also aware of him - and their information helped them to make a decision on the player! Coincidence!? I wonder if McInnes still wants to claim this!? https://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/18203205.derek-mcinnes-praises-aberdeen-atlanta-link-hernandez-signing/
