Afc In Unusual Places

Recommended Posts

Been watching channel 4 documentary “Paul Heaton: From Hull to Heatongrad”. 20 minutes from the end, a static shot of a couple of football pennants on the wall of the studio. One was Millwall, the other was our very own Aberdeen FC. WTF?!!

It a Hull Penang in sight. What’s the story there?

 

Any other unexpected sighttings of The Famous?

 

I remember John Gordon Sinclair playing a Dons ta. In a short drama with Alan Davies a few years back (god knows the name).

There's an old photo of an African fitba team in 80's dons tops

 

 

Due to O&G work it's not uncommon to see paraphernalia in distant lands

 

I just wish Derek McInnes was in a distant land

Girlfriend of mine sometimes wears the Aberdeen top I gave her whilst cleaning rooms at a hotel in Sunny beach , Bulgaria. Hotel has 90% German customers and she says that she has had some interesting comments and some Bayern fans who really want to speak football with her even though she knows fuck all.

Couple of Dons scarves on the ceiling of the (brilliantly named) Beverly Hills Fun Pub in Stavanger, though with all the O&G connections I don't suppose that's particularly random or unusual.

Did once see an Aberdeen top or pennant in a bar somewhere exotic but can't for the fuck of me remember where it was and not going to make it up.

Aberdeen sticker on a lampost outside Belfast International Airport. I have a photo kicking around somewhere. It's no longer there, probably a hun picked it off with shite stained nails.

Don't know if it's the same one you're thinking of, but was a made-for-TV film just before the start of France 98 called "my summer with Des", starring John Gordon Sinclair with Neil Morrissey and Rachel Weisz, which was all about Euro 96.

 

Anyway, there's an Aberdeen poster on the wall. And John Gordon Sinclair plays a Dons fan (pretty sure he's a Hibs fan in real life).

 

There's a bit where he goes to kiss the trophy in the team poster for good luck and then says "Aw no, we don't have one". But it was 1996, we'd have been League Cup holders at the time.

 

Anyway, 5 mins 30 secs in you can watch it here:-

Edit: Pretty sure later on in the film the two get into an argument and Neil Morrissey rips down the Aberdeen poster in revenge.

Would have made your post a bit more interesting if you had.

Thinking Rio now but can't give specifics as I was really bad with the drink and drugs at the time.

Any experience in dealing with dodgy Limo companies?

Ah yes, that's the very one.  Turns out I was confusing it with another drama called "Roman Road".
