Nope, all multi medal winners. Folk would be wrong.

Hans Gillhaus only won one medal at Aberdeen 👀👀

Out of position? His best spell was under McInnes as a left back.

Agree. Would also add that Hayes helped him a lot at both ends of the pitch

Think with 11 players probably coming in - and if we are keeping suggested trends a good majority u25. A player like considine in training every day would be priceless to help players understand Aberdeen

who now is the most senior afc bred player? Looking at the full match day squad I would guess McLennan followed by Mackenzie  c’mon  how we encouraging the youngsters then have a career with AFC  

 

player development ,stability and knowing why Aberdeen has a statue of fergusson outside the ground   That’s why I think this is a mistake  

1/2 a squad who knows what Conidine and aberdeen means half a new squad who’s view of Aberdeen is either the airport or the rear view mirror  

 

 

If aberdeen FC sign 11 players this summer I’ll donate £50 to my local synagogue 

(first team/ squad, pedantic arseholes)

He has definitely had a successful career overall.

He’s played his entire career in the top division in his country, played in Europe, played for his country (and helped them qualify for their first tournament in decades), won a proper trophy, 4th record appearance holder for the team he supports, POTY a few times too.

There’s a huge number of players who’d bite your hand off to say they had a career like that.

I'm being a bit pendantic, but I don't think he did. He never played in the Serbia playoff game, he was on the bench and in the celebrations. He only played in Nations League games either side of it.

He's a legend for me. Part of it's about longevity and service to the club.

This is what happens when woke dickheads project their sense of entitlement onto a discussion about true club legends. Just because you’ve not witnessed a legend don’t make everyone else lower their standards.

I can’t believe someone is suggesting Considine is more of a legend than Gillhaus! Fucking hell. Watching players like Gillhaus, Nicholas, Jess et.al, aka True Legends, was an experience - they gave us experiences to watch - things that we still think or speak about today. Seeing Duncan Shearer’s overhead kick from 18 yards out, or watching Rico lash one in from 20 yards on a dark, wet European night against Torino, or watching Jess collect the ball on the halfway line and thump one past the Gorams and scum in the cup. Fucking experiences, that’s what makes them legends. Not fucking Andy Considine ffs.

I’m hopeful you’ll see a true legend play for aberdeen one day, but, until it happens, don’t search for something that doesn’t exist in the pish we’ve endured these past 20 years.

Ah I thought he got on in the Serbia game. If not then my bad. Still a decent career he’s had. Better than most of the other permanent CB’s we’ve had during his time here

Ach, one club men are pretty rare these days and should be celebrated. Surely we can have the decency to wish a lad all the best who's played for us his entire career.  A loyal club servant rather than a legend if that makes folk feel better. 

It feels like he's getting penalised in folk's minds for not having being good enough to be flogged for big money. 

I assume its similar for the likes of Lewis Stevenson at Hibs who is another rare example of a guy in his mid 30s who has ever only played for one club.

Dumb as fuck sentence, that. 
 

It's "woke" and "entitled" to argue a guy who's made 541 appearances for a football club is a legend. 
 

Words don't mean anything anymore, just whatever Internet people say they mean. 
 

You can disagree that he's a legend, I have a different opinion. Framing it as a result of people being more socially conscious is truly the dumbest thing I've read on here. That takes some doing. So, fair play.

To class a player as a legend is all very subjective to each fan, that’s pretty much been shown by there being a split on if Andy Considine is a legend or not.

Yes. Subconsciously, your little woke mind can’t handle the fact you’ve not seen a legend, hence why you find it hard to define or identify a true legend, but because you’re so entitled, you can’t accept it’s not within your gift to judge. Demonstrated when the best you can come up with is that Andy Considine is a legend because he played 541 times for the club.

It’s quite complex, but with hindsight, you’ll reflect in 10 years and admit I’m right.

Carry on.

Don't understand the take on Considine from certain folk on here. You don't consider him a legend? Fair enough, it's entirely subjective. But that doesn't mean you need go rubbish a guy who's lived & breathed the club all his days in order to make your point.

Your just insulting now for no reason. I seen every single player on the list play apart from billy stark I think ( I might of seen billy stark but I don’t remember him) and I’d class Andy Considine as much a legend as them not for the fact he had 541 games but that he was in a winning cup final team. I’d class the 2014 team I watched at parkhead as much legends as I do the team that won the 1989 skol cup final I watched at hampden.

If you won a trophy for Aberdeen your a legend in my book.

Simply hanging around for a long time doesn't make you a legend, in my book. 

You either need to be exceptional - Considine wasn't

or 

Be part of something exceptional - Considine wasn't

I'm not saying he wasn't a loyal servant... but Legend?

C'mon. 

Being a first team player for 18+ years (regardless of quality) is actually pretty exceptional. All about perspective because your view would mean that lesser sides are not allowed to have ‘legends’ as players.

As I said earlier, JG is a St Mirren legend but he wouldn’t meet your version of what is deemed a legend.

Your view would mean that no Aberdeen player can ever be a legend as there is no chance he could ever achieve close to that of those under Fergie

Agree with all of that. AC has had a successful career, he’s fulfilled (presumably) his boyhood dream of being a a professional footballer, he’s played his entire career to the best of his ability and to the limits of his own capability, at his hometown club. He’s been able to achieve that and sustain it for 19 seasons, which is commendable. However, would he ever make a legends 11, or should he, based on longevity in isolation, I don’t think so.

wonderful servant, great dedication to the club, but not one that will be remembered for achievement beyond commitment and longevity.

* I'm trying to think how that conversation might go, though. Here's Andy Considine, a club legend. How so? He was at the club for a relatively long time.  From what I can remember, and admittedly my memory isn't all it was since the smack on the heid a couple of weeks back, it's not like he was knocking back offers from other clubs in order to remain at Aberdeen. And since 'legend' is relative to the club and its expectations, then of course lesser clubs can have legends. An 'exceptional' Cove Rangers player might become a Cove Rangers legend, but what's exceptional at Cove Rangers would be barely passable at Aberdeen. Doesn't in any way prevent Cove having its own legends. 

** He's a legend, presumably, by St Mirren standards. I wouldn't know what they deem 'legendary'. Maybe hanging around St Mirren for a long time is what makes a St Mirren legend. Maybe it's scoring a goal against Celtic that makes them a legend. Can't speak to their standards. 

*** Not entirely true. Jess was an exceptional player, Gillhaus was an exceptional player, I wouldn't argue against either of them being considered legends. 

Put it this way... Fergie was with us for about 8 years, McInnes was with us for roughly the same length of time. If time served is any measure of legendary status then McInnes would be as much entitled to be called a 'Legendary Aberdeen Manager' as Alex Ferguson... and I think we can both agree that anyone trying to claim as much should get kicked the FULL length of Union Street.

Hi Jamie Langfield 

 

edit, this just reminded me that I was once in the minky dundee shopping mall  and there was a stall with football photo tat. Like aerial views of the two dundee grounds etc. there was a dundee legends frame with three individual photos in it. Langfield was in the middle.

I think he has another solid year left. Just pay him. At this rate he'll slide right into the future open management position next spring.

Because he's been involved in any embarrassing shit show and all time lows the club have encountered the last 20 years. He's played to an acceptable level in about a quarter of his time with us.
