Well done Shut up Meg.

Classic quiz question there.

Which Belgium goalkeeper, signed from a Dutch club, scored on his debut for a Scottish side on English soil?

Kept a clean sheet ina

Virtual points to Muttonhumper.

Any fans on here old enough to have seen him play for the Dons?

I would have been there when he was playing, not sure if I saw him play as all I used to do at that time was run along the main stand flipping seats up and down.

Apparently. I would have been 4.

Also remember my Dad gave my signed photo in picture frame.

No idea where that went.

I know I used to call him "Salt n Vinegar". Nor sure if that was a thing, or just seemed close enough for a 4 year old.

I'm certainly old enough, was the first season I was allowed to go to games on the supporters bus alone but I never saw him play.

Because he broke his ankle or something in the very next game, was out for a while and Leighton regained his place. De Clerck never played another game for us and left for a Dutch club the following summer.

Can't remember why Leighton had lost his place in the first place. Probably injury as I'm sure we started the defence of our title fairly well. We lost it almost exclusively to the combined efforts of Morton (our bogey club for no apparent good reason at that time) and Kilmarnock. Sure they both beat us twice that season.

I'd take Shinnie over any of our current CMs. 100% 

So would I. But thats him just turned 30. Leave him be and lets keep our memories of how good he was for us.... rather than the sad memories McGinn and Hayes are creating!!

I know De Clerc only played two games for us, but was wondering if anyone managed to see Zoltan Varga play for the Dons

I never saw Zoltan play but can remember my Father singing his praises as I gave him his Green final after coming off the bus home from a game.

Fergus Tiernan?

Some muppet from Cove put a bet on him winning international caps for Eire, I think it was. A fool and his money and all that….

He wasn't a bad goalscorer. He did know where the net was... He just wasnt a good footballer.

There are players just like him that have made a career out of being quite simply a goalscorer and at a higher level than him.

I'm glad he isn't at Aberdeen anymore at the same time.

McInnes couldn't get a tune out of the cunt after he came back from injury either. He was absolutely hopeless in his last year or so at Pittodrie. 

There's clearly a player in there  but it's buried so deep now that you'll likely never see it again.

His YouTube highlights reel must have a few crackers in it. Any clubs fans down there will see that and think they’re getting a player! 
 

I mind speaking to my da every week and him saying ‘cosgrove again eh’ and trying to explain just how bad he was to watch. But he always stuck it in the #onionbag (far did that come from) when having a shite game.

Had a look through McNamara’s autobiography yesterday to see what he said about his time with us . About 3 pages spared for his time at AFC. 
His original plan was to commute every day but soon got fed up with the 3 hour and more journey every day so the club put him in some flat. Jimmy C promised him a left midfielder role and easier training sessions , neither of which happened to his satisfaction. 
The Monday after the QoS semi , Jimmy had a go at him at training and they had a right old barney In front of the squad . That is basically it.
The book is in obscenely huge print as well. Reckon you could finish it over a couple of hours .

The likes of McCrorie, Kennedy and Ferguson are forever back down in the Glasgow area.
