That goal against Bayern was a cracker, he never really kicked on from there though. He didn't stand out in one of the poorest Aberdeen sides in living memory. 

Aluko though - :thumbsdown

Poorest in living memory?

Hardly.  We reached the last 32 of the UEFA cup even if league form was inconsistent.

Nothing on the horror show that was Mark Mcghee's team.

Average side yes, but I’ve seen far worse in the last 20 years than the 2008 side 

We finished 4th and got through our UEFA Cup group :unsure2:

Beat me to it.

2010 was the worst I can remember. The squad was pretty poor but looking at it there should have been enough to have done better than we did that season. Bottom six quality certainly but looking back it really emphasises how poor McGhee was that he had that team equal bottom of the table.

I would include the 2003 squad  but the team in 2008 was miles better than quite a few especially as it had Severin, Lovell, Smith, Bus, Nicholson in that squad.

Wait, are you saying Bus was good or am I horribly misunderstanding your post? :lol:

I thought the 2007-2008 squad was actually pretty good. The absence of Anderson showed but the likes of Smith and Nicholson could walk into pretty much any Aberdeen side I'm old enough to remember.

Whilst the european form that season was good, the league form was horrendous. We got utterly demolished by Celtic on the sunday prior to the draw with Bayern.

How we finished fourth is incredible. McGhee's side was also very poor, but it was a side mainly assembled by Calderwood.

You're still claiming a side that finished 4th a being the worst in recent memory when we've had sides that finished 9th just about every year and Mcghee's team were headed for almost certain relegation.

Pre-Calderwood we were utter garbage as well.

 I added his name for a laugh the worst defender for Aberdeen imho. Was Bossu in the squad that season? He was worst Goalkeeper - Calderwood signed some horrendous players

Big Jerel Ifil remains the worst footballer I've ever seen to be fair.

Dave Bus may be a close second though :lol:

My bad. Still frustrating, however.

 

I think in general terms you have  to trust the management though.

Shankland's attitude at Aberdeen in terms of being in the shape required to play full-time football wasn't where it needs to be - any player coming in at his age without any grounding in full-time football ethos will have that particular bridge to cross. He's on record as saying it wasn't right. We had him out on loan four times across his 4 year contract - it's not as if he came in and got punted (permanently) quickly. In his final year out on loan he did not score that many goals at his present level - none with St Mirren and 4 for Morton from a combined 33 games. 17 league games for the Dons in his 2nd year at Pittodrie and no goals.

In terms of Rose, I remember he got one start live on the telly v St Johnstone but like Shankland, he was not moved on prematurely. He came through the Aberdeen youth system and got 5 seasons at the club.

Harvie got 4 years and proved his mettle in at Championship level with his year at Dumbarton. Last season was his chance to 'do a McKenna' but he sat on the bench for a spell then got injured. Considine being cemented in at left back and barely missing a game would also have limited his chances. Ironically, had he signed for this year there may have been no need to get Lowe in and he'd have got a chance when Considine did pick up an injury in the semi. "Them's the breaks", as they say.

Davide Grassi for me. I remember a game at Tynecastle when under no pressure whatsoever Grassi decided to clear the ball deep into the stands for a corner. When the inevitable moans from the Dons support started Mulgrew or Diamond (one of the more competent players anyway) went over to applaud and encourage him as evidently he thought conceding a corner a preferable action to Grassi having the ball for any significant time. I think we won that game though.

It initially looked like we made a bad decision releasing Declan McManus too. I think we’ve been proven right.

Wouldn't want someone with such a clear and obvious h* face playing for us anyway.

I was going to say! I still have nightmares about his diving header own goal in the 4-3 win at Inverness.

It's close between Bossu and Collin on the worst goalkeeper front, but I think the latter would shade it for me. Maybe a bit of recency bias there, though. Thinking of some of the imposters we have had between the sticks in the twenty-first century just makes me even more thankful to have someone as good as Lewis for the time being.

having 2008 Dons as one of the worst sides in living memory, holy jesus mate. 

Finishing bottom under Skovdahl

Finishing second bottom under Pele Paterson

Craig Brown's 0-0 wonders

Kerr and McDonald in Calderwood's team the season after

Mark. Fucking. McGhee. 

The best European  nights at Pittodrie in my memory happened in that season. Aye it wasn't often pretty, and aye it wasn't sensational domestically, but ending up 4th, behind the bigot bros and Romanov's Hearts, and the Euro exploits, were really decent achievements.

I didn’t say he would be. I said if it was a bad one he would be out of the season. Looks likely it will be a couple of months, at least, anyway so it was hardly a ‘wind up’.

Alex 'Fuckin' Miller!  

 

I win! (rocking back and forth whilst crying emoji).  

 

How he managed to get so little from that squad still amazes me to this day!

 

Dishonorable (non-Dingus) mentions for;

God, who made a right rickets of the '95 season (five at the back anyone)!

Roy Aitken (the following season) for being, well, you know, Roy Aitken!

Pele for, you know, for doing exactly what all us fans were doing just to help us make it through a Saturday afternoon watching his team! (the very definition of a vicious circle).

 

I'll be forever grateful to the mahogany-h*n, he made us competitive again!

 

Yours, in need of therapy... again!

aDONis

P.S. despite '95 being an absolute abomination, it is still one of my favourite seasons!  In my mind the sun was always shining and I discovered that I didn't need to see great flowing football and tons of goals.  Just knowing that we relegated Dundee Utd was reward enough!

 

Whatever happened to them, you just don't hear much about them? :whistle (they are the very definition of white dog-shyte)!
