I mind one game not long after that beckham label, we arrived for a 3pm Saturday game and he was just milling about in his dons tracksuit along the beachfront where we parked. About 14:30. Asked him why he wasn’t in the squad today. He didn’t know either. 
 

surprisingly bad attitude for a lightskin

Would Greg Tansey's 9 appearances be enough for him to qualify for this team?

talent wise, no. He wasn't a bad player, at least not for Caley. Contribution wise? he'd be up there.

Steve Ritchie (the really old fans will remember him), absolutely honking, made Winnie look like Maldini.

Scored in a cup final, and even then it was a fucking shite effort.

 

 Duncan Davidson and Walker McCall were far worse than Ritchie

Ebbe was it not? Mackie was the new Michael Owen and Super Kev was the new Helveg (Danish fullback at AC Milan)

Ebbe was the new Father Jack.

Ritchie was really bad. Equal in badness to Davidson, worse than McCall I'd say.

Duncan Davidson once kicked his own foot whjile passing up a chance in front of goal. 😆

Still remember him pacing through on goal at the Beach End v Motherwell to finish off an 8-0 win in a midweek game.

As for McCall, fond memory of him scoring a brace in a 2-0 win at Celtic, the big lanky, curly haired galoot.

Masson the new Bett. Payne the new Beckham. Mackie the new Owen. Bagshaw the new Rooney. And of course, Cammy Smith the new Bergkamp. 

Mackie the best career of them all.... never quite got the move to Real Madrid though

Cammy Smith won a trophy with his hometown club. 
 

He trumps the Dazzler.

A few other candidates

Jamie Winter.

Jim Hamilton.....fairly prolific scorer for just about every other Scottish team he played for.... but not for us

James Wilson.... high profile and cost (by our standards) .... mimimal return on on our investment

Ronnie Hernandez.....£800K .... a worryingly ineffective and incompetent debut and didn’t improve much after that

We were terrible in that final.  However, the lasting memory was that Steve Ritchie mis-kick turning the Girvan Shitehouse in to a long armed primate at an Indonesian rehabilitation center.  Making such an icon of the unwashed masses look so stupid in front of a massive TV audience keeps Ritchie well clear of any of my 'worst of' teams.

Ah, didnt realise you were talking about Paterson. I was just noting bizarre comparisons in general!

Someone asked who made the comparisons and I said Charlie Allan, MT said Paterson.

Don't think it could have been given he was managing Dufftown juniors at the time Smith and Masson were coming through.

Maybe Payne.

In reality, who care. I'm boring myself.

Up ih Dons.

I think Craig Broon might have been the man who made the comparisons re Smith and Masson with their more illustrious counterparts.

Jeffery Monakana was pish. Alan Tait -shite. Conor McLennan- I just don’t get it at all.

I dont know what McLennan does in training to be so bad not to be considered for a start but merits ten minutes at the end with zero expectations from anyone on him to do anything.

McCall wasn't that bad, bizarre to think he was still in our squad when we faced Bayern in '83 (although he was sold IIRC to a Hong Kong side a few weeks later). I'm sure I once read that Fergie signed him because he was Dougie Bell's brother in law and Bell had asked Fergie if he could train with us in pre-season as a favour. Impressed so much that Fergie offered him a deal.

If Tom Jones gets a mention, then so must Gary Hackett, signed that same summer by Porterfield.

Steve Ritchie was an abomination of a player but the comedy goal in the Cup Final made up for a lot of his shortcomings.

I'm going to throw in Gregg Watson. As a young loon he was touted as being the next Willie Miller. And so he was. That Willie Miller being the one that played right back for Hibs....

If he starts tomorrow then i am seriously going to start questioning Goodwin.  Im near 50 and id turn in better performances.

I remember he tried to do a step over one game and fell over the ball. Hopeless.

Haven't seen anybody mention Miles Storey yet. Holder of the worst miss in AFC's history surely.

I'm demanding Paul Kane, fat necked and ugly and I got berated by both members of his fan club one game.

Thinking of the midfielders of that era

Craig Shitey Robertson.

Ian Cameron

Paul Kane, 

Jim Bett.

Paul Mason,

Van De Ven.

Ten Cast, 

We had a vast array of ability

Miles Storey! You forget about these players and then the mention of their names sends a chill down your spine . 
That miss was so bad the referee just gave us the goal anyway.

McLennan is a puzzling one.Can only assume he gets a game as he’s the best of a bad bunch in training.

That boy McLennan has zero confidence when he steps over the line. That’s his main problem.
