Rather than commenting on everyone's team, how about you pick one?

Below is the team if I could pick my starting XI from players we've had. I know Shinnie never played LB for us but i'd rather have him at left back than dropping one of McLean or Fergie.

 

Can't help but think if Anderson was alongside McKenna he would develop into some player.

 

If we could get a better right back that team would be challenging the league easily, especially with the bench. Could always chuck shinnie RB and Lowe in at LB.

 

I've highlighted in bold though my favourite players in the past 10 years, although i love Pawlett for that season of the league cup and the scenes at hampden singing Peter Pawlett Baby, he just isn't quite good enough to get into my starting XI and Rooney is the first actual goalscorer i've ever seen in my short 18 years or so of supporting us but I prefer cosgrove as an all round player. Big fan of Jack too, but I think Fergie is better and will go onto have a great career in England top flight.

 

Lewis

 

Logan Anderson McKenna Shinnie

 

Ferguson McLean

 

Christie Maddison Hayes

 

Cosgrove

 

Subs (Honorable mentions):

McGinn is the best player in the decade

 

That says everything about our decade.

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.

Absolutely fucking no chance Rooney gets in ahead of Cosgrove. Cosgrove is scoring in a dog shit team and is miles better overall.


Better player by a long way, agreed. Rooney was brilliant for us for a long part of the decade though.

That's a classic line that

Aye?

Who exactly did Anderson develop in his time here?

He was quick & that pace got him out of problems he left himself in from a lack of positional sense.
He was good until he got that shoulder injury in an away European tie.
His distribution was abysmal though.

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!!

The year after he left for Sunderland he had Severin holding his hand.
