  1. Ryan Duncan is the real deal.Saw him play a couple of games a few years ago when he was a very young player and he was excellent.
  2. Austin Samuels took his his goal superbly..Young player ,does have some good attributes and does sometimes do things that infuriate fans.I remember that cannon ball cross well !
  3. A good point.I would be delighted if we stopped signing loan players and put trust in promising players coming through our own youth system.Jim Goodwin has had success with young Irish players making their way in the English leagues like Connor Ronan, and would not be surprised if he goes down this route in the summer.
  4. Austin Samuels scores first leg play off winner for Inverness Caley Thistle at Firhill.Did not have the best of times at Pittodrie at the start of the season under Stephen Glass, but has made a good contribution to Inverness promotion cause
  5. I was too polite to mention the final score ! All very well Aberdeen fielding a very young team in the u18s League this season,but getting well beat does nothing for confidence.Will be interested to see if Youth Cup tie will see a stronger and more experienced team selection.
  6. Thoroughly agree we should field our strongest side,.It is the Scottish Cup,the one trophy we can still win this season.Full team.If and when the game is won then others get a game.
  7. A nice touch by the club giving those that bought season tickets last season, and did not demand refunds, free admission tomorrow.Hope it is an enjoyable easy win and Connor Barron gets a wee run. Memories of Stenhousemuir and Dumbarton prompt caution.We never make it easy for ourselves.
  8. Good debate.Trojan horse is the best phrase to sum things up.Rangers and Celtic are now in the Lowland League system and their young players and both clubs are enjoying the benefits.Meanwhile the young Aberdeen u18s play Rangers u18s tonight at Auchenhowie. Interesting game and start of a double header with SFA Youth Cup tie at same venue next week.
  9. Harry Milne was outstanding last night.Recall him always playing well for a good Culter team.Felt old watching Blair Yule and Mitchell Megginson.Can remember watching their dads Raymond Yule and Michael Megginson playing at Allan Park.
  10. There were no less than eight players in the Cove Rangers squad that were once on the books of Aberdeen. Reynolds,Fyvie, Megginson,Masson played for the first team.Strachan,Ross, Anderson, McAllister played in the youth set up
  11. Natural goalscorer.Could have done well with Aberdeen given half a chance.Mucked about by McInnes.Pleased to see Bruce Anderson doing well.
  12. Dougie Bell was a great player for Aberdeen.Fantastic close control and ball skills.Always found it sad that Alex Ferguson could not give an injured Dougie Bell a place on the bench in Gothenburg,the same as he did for Stuart Kennedy.Outstanding in European matches was Dougie Bell.
  13. Hello Millertime,the Livingston display by Connor McLennan, and over three years ago, just illustrates he has been a good player for quite some time and undoubtedly has the ability to be a fine player in the future for Aberdeen.He is older now and perhaps at a crossroads, but don't give up on him yet.
  14. Agree,I had said that for older players who have had a taste of first team football it was not a good sign for the player's prospects and place in the plans.For young players at the very start of their senior career, a spell out on loan is perfectly understandable and can be a very positive .experience.
  15. I remember one night Connor McLennan came on at half time against Livingston with us 2 -1 down and completely transformed the game He turned defenders inside out on the right wing,good crosses, and set up the equaliser. Eventually a Lewis Ferguson overhead kick right at the end gave the Dons a 3-2 win.Connor was the difference and the man of the match.That was December 2018 !
