I would love a Brian Grant, Paul Mason and Lee Richardson in this current squad.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

OK the forward line in both squads could be safely described as the two best we have ever had.

Rooney. Maynard. Stewart. May. GMS. Wright. 2017

Pattelainen. Shearer. Booth. Jess. Mason. 1992.

Nicholas. Gillhaus. Jess. Booth. Van der ark. 1990.

I'd certainly say the 92 forwards would all easily be first pics today.

 

That 1990 line up is tasty.

Never argue with an I D I O T . They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Was a sad day for me a few years ago when I discovered that Connor no longer had that moustache.

I was at the star jump celebration game.

Pumped the Tims 3 zip in their own grotty backyard.

Large terraced stand with Dons young and old tumbling down the front in an absolute frenzy trying to get a touch on that wonderful moustache.

I even remember what I was wearing.

Sunhat, baggy purple hooded top, huge flares and a pair of Etonic trainers.

It was my tried and tested going out kit in the #Summer of love. #1990

The class of 92/93 would pump this lot. The current crop are screaming for a Bisconti/Heikennen and I think McInnes has assembled a pool that couldn't be bettered.

If we start a petition, and get 10,000 signatures ,Bobby Conor's moustache would have to be debated in parliament .

Yeah as good a squad that McInnes has assembled, as said that 92/93 team would destroy them. Mason, Grant, Rico and Connor in midfield and With Shearer, Jess & Paatelainen upfront, oocha fucking beastie. Fucking travesty we never won the league with that team :(

I'll put my tin hat on here and say that overall Rooney, May and Christie are actually a better attacking force than Dunc, Mixu and Jess.

 

Jess would obviously still walk into our team like.

I said overall.  I think with the addition of May it'll lift us to a whole new level.

 

I agree the 92-93 squad would batter the current team though.  No question.

Is jimmys top squad more comparable?
I think the league in 92/93 and maybe even in jimmys days were a higher standard than is now.

Jimmys top squad were a higher standard than what we have now!?  Fuck off.

 

Darren Mackie, Jamie Langfield, Duff, Youngs, Bebo, Kerr, McDonald to just name a few names off the top of my head. These aren't Calvin Zola types either, these were consistent starters.

May has the potential to be better than Mixu - Scott Wright perhaps as well - overall otherwise probably down a bit from the class of 92/3  but I'd not be astounded if todays team won the odd game (or the class of 92-93 went undefeated all season in the current setup) - football is a funny game - now class of 92/3 up against todays Tims would also be interesting - would again give it to the class of 92/3 but it'd be tighter than we'd like. We would outscore them and Theo would save more - still the best Dons keeper I've seen imho.

Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple - Bill Shankly.

It's great the way the current squad has appeared out of panic of few weeks back when Sunderland were after Derek, Hayes had gone etc. and looking back at decent squad of early 90s. Reminder of fact of how spoilt we were as fans back then when many used to criticise guys like Brian Grant and Bobby Connor and the Red Final /Northen Light ran Bobbys Blouse cartoons

Wait, if the team of 1992, at that age, played today's team - would they play current passback/offside rules, or 1992?

 

Maybe a half of each?

 

And can the entire crowd be unicorns, just while we're making shit up?

Apart from throw ins, it was the same rule in 1992.

 

Not that the team of 1992 or today would ever consider passing backwards.

There were no such rules in 1992 and none today - football has Laws of the Game

i never saw Mason play a negative , backwward pass always get it forward,

 

anyway just as a comparison id love to see OUR current squad rip the Celtic tem of that year anew arsehole/

 

Bonner, 

Marshall.

 

McNally , boyd, Gillespie, Mowbray, O Neil, wdowcyk, 

 

McStay, collins, Payton, Slater, Grant, Vata, Galloway, Fulton

 

Miler, Coyne, Nicholas, Creaney, Hayes,

 

only players id rate from that squad. Tom Boyd, John Collins , Tommy Coyne, and charlie Nicholas, 

recall how shite Payton Slater and Hayes were indeed did martin Hayes not once get " accidentally " locked in a teammates car and miss training, and no one noticed he wasnt there.

 

our current lot would handle that side,

As Marshall is our current goal keeping coach there could be some Back to the Future type kerfuffle when old Gordon goes back to tell young Gordon what's gon on and when we get tae noo Trump is the president.

Imagine Big Dunc in his prime putting his foot through the floater type footballs we use today? He'd destroy the cunt.
