If anything it sounds like Frank is the man to solve the striker crisis

Loved a 7am pint in the Crit before an away day train poured by Frank back in the day. That man certainly hates the huns

 

Aye. Absolute tragedy for th Crit to be replaced by a shitey fucking Tesco or whatever the fuck it is.

Another piece of genuine Aberdeen heritage pished doon the drain.

McDougall the best striker ever to play for the Dons.
Well, best I've seen anyway.

A goal scoring machine.

Aye a few pints in the Crit before getting the train to a game is a well missed ritual. Agree I didn't see too much of Harper just the tail end, but Macdougall was a superb striker.I read a story lately where Macdougall went on a tour of Manchester United training ground and Fergie recognised him and took a couple of Man.Utd strikers over with him and said to them come and meet a proper striker cant remember the 2 but it shows Fergie recognised the class. I also remember Fergie saying he was the Best Buy he ever made

Best out and out goalscorer I'd agree. But best striker....no can't buy that. Had McDougall been in the CWC Final in the position Magoo found himself in extra time....I'm not sure he would have skipped past the Real defender never mind Hewitt receiving the cross he did.

(I'm not saying Magoo is the best striker we have had either btw)

Aye the Crit closing wis a sad day.

Frank was a brilliant striker,but I'm afraid only 2nd to King Joey,and Big Duncan nae far behind.

Christ we've had some good strikers at Pittodrie.

Stevie Archibald gets overlooked too easily, in my opinion. Terrific striker for AFC and beyond

Aye, exactly.

How many of our strikers could or have gone on to play for Spurs & Barcelona?

Great striker.

I think Archibald gets overlooked because he wasn't here for long and had his best years after he left.  Probably the most talented of all the strikers we've had in my lifetime though.

To be fair Mcghee was a totally different striker or forward maybe. He liked to peel off wide and he had a great cross on him whereas Frankie was an out and out goalscorer who scored some amazing goals and also as many scrappy goals, obviously injury blighted his career. Spent a bit of time in Barcelona in the early 90's and Archibald was still spoken about then amongst the Catalans who loved him when he was there, his career stats were good also with a goal every 3 games.It is tough to call we have had so many great strikers. I loved Shearer who was similar to Mcdougall and Gilhaus was very talented.Eric Black was a quality striker who doesn't often get mentioned.I actually believe Rooney would have been even better under a more attack minded manager , I think he would have scored even more if he was allowed to play the role Shearer and Mcdougall did. Any of the mentioned strikers would massively improve us Today though

Jarvie is possibly the most underrated in my time. 

 

Although not an out and out goal poacher like Harper or McDougall he still averaged a goal every three games or thereabouts

Devlins injury was leaked on the various Aberdeen messageboards almost immediately... was at least a week or so before it was confirmed by McInnes.

A number of recent signings and transfer activity has been leaked too... last 12 months or so, a lot more information making its way into the public domain before being formally announced by club.  McInnes never used to let anything get out...

Yip, it's a very leaky place now adays but of course for some there's always been info that gets out just depends how ITK you are, like me, top level ITK I knew we were signing Gallagher a few months before.

Alex Ferguson started losing it in November 1986, so I take what he said about Choccy McClair with a large pinch of salt😉.

McClair was one of those players that did a lot of work for the team, the type of player that Fergie loved but fans overlooked a bit. Pish for Scotland though

Jarvie was just before my time in so far as (hi MT 👋) I remember the hair but not the goals.  That said whenever I go on to watch an Archibald video or similar you invariably see a Jarvie goal and think Ooyah fucker!

Aye. Not only did Jarvie have the same haircut as Bobby Charlton he could hit a screamer from distance like him too. 

8th in the all time appearance list and 5th in the all time scorer list.  Not bad for a ten year spell.

Gary Lineker if we had signed him as a youth.

Even though some are in their 60 and 70s?

If we're lamenting early morning drinking dens, The Balaclava deserves a mention. 

Great shout, I went there completely rubbered before leaving for the Scottish Cup Final in 93....in an even bigger mess after leaving

Mcdougall for me the best finisher I ever saw at Pittodrie, 

Ferguson says in Frank's book that Mcdougall was the best finisher he had ever worked with. 

The Mcdougall and Black pairing was split up far too soon they worked in perfect tandem, I used to love watching the two of them smashing hat tricks  past the two tracksuit bottom clad, useless, flailing arms of McCloy and butter shortbread fingers Walker. 

Mcdougall for me the best finisher I have seen.

A better natural finisher than John "Budgie" Stewart though? King Jimmy would find it hard to agree
