Spent a couple of 31st December afternoons in Joey Harper's, before his sticky fingers got him the dunt.

Most loved Aberdeen player in history. Nobody came close for me.

Aye was my hero. Best penalty box finisher I've ever seen in the flesh. Was lucky as I saw Willie Miller in his prime also and he was the best penalty box defender I've ever seen.

Aye, the King had sticky fingers all right.

 

Mine he had a kids coaching class going on back in the early 80s. Fucked off with the cheques whilst failing to complete much in the way of coaching.

 

Great player, hero to many back in the day, inc. yours truly

Yeah he's got a lot more kids going about than many people's wives would want known.

Top shagger. He really did score when he wanted

I respect cunts who saw us during the good times... never mind I'll always have 1995 and Duncan Shearer... (my daughter was born 2014 hence how I missed that out).

Don't remember him playing, but mind plenty stories of his boozing when he'd retired from playing. He's mates with my Dad and always says hello at Pittodrie, a nice mannie

Most folk of a certain generation claim to be mates with him. In reality, he doesn't know Jim from Tim.

Always heard from my dad and his mates there was plenty of boozing when he was still playing. Pretty sure (?) he got banned from playing for Scotland for getting on the piss.

 

EDIT: Yeah, I know it's wikipedia.

International career[edit]

Harper first played for Scotland against Denmark in October 1972, scoring on his debut in a 4–1 win.[5] He played in Scotland's next game but then fell out of the international reckoning, only earning a recall in 1975. By coincidence, the occasion was another away match with Denmark, but this was overshadowed by a controversial off-field incident. Harper and several teammates were given lifetime bans by the Scottish Football Association after it was alleged that they had been involved in a nightclub incident where a light was broken and an altercation followed.[6] Harper later said that he had been punished because he had returned to the team base in the same taxi as the other players.[6] The ban on two of the players, Harper and Arthur Graham, was lifted a year later.[6] Harper was selected in the Scotland squad for the 1978 FIFA World Cup. He appeared in the 1–1 draw against Iran, which was also his last international appearance, as Scotland exited in the first round.[5]

He fathered an illigitimate child in or around 72, which was a scandal back in the day. Front page news of the EE!

 

Seemed to coincide with his departure to Everton a few weeks later

Aye he was a tubby Gerd Muller who liked the birds, the booze and the betting but nobody cared in those days as he kept hitting the back of the net.

Sportsound used to do a phone in. Twenty odd year ago, I made one phone call to it and got through. Joey Harper was on with Richard Gordon.

 

Canna mind what my point or comment was but at the end I said, and oh, just want say to Joey, on behalf of all Aberdeen fans, you were god.

 

Quick as fuck he retorted with bless you my son. Me and Richard Gordon cracked up.

He did an after dinner thing I was at year's ago. Every story involved him getting pished and telling people he thought they were cunts. Told them in a funny way though. Good value, hates Ferguson.

He was a special player for us of that there is nae doubt.

 

Opposition fans (mainly Celtic) used to try and wind him up with "roll out the barrel..." but he just kept scoring goals.

 

Joey, Joey Harper, Joey Harper is the King...

 

Some man.
