My brother in law is an Aberdeen fan, just because he grew up in that era and loved watching them. 

Glory hunting, pure and simple, although if he has continued supporting them through the Wiggy era then the glory hunting is negated and he becomes a bona fide sheep shagger.

Yeah probably, but he's totally dyed in the wool. Loves em.

Four Scottish Cup wins in five years is an incredible achievement when you consider that we’ve only won one in the 34 years since.

You didn't really need to post that bit...

Although it's very believable (and almost certainly true), can help but think he would have left a couple of years later anyway. 

Would have been great to have kept him for the upturn under Calderwood and European run. No left back since him has been close to his standard.

With the league season now having been called it got me thinking, what if something like this had happened in 1980. If that season had been suspended on the 23rd March we would have still had the two games at Parkhead to play and Celtic still had to go to relegation threatened Dundee where they would lose 5-1.

To be fair, it would have seemed like divine intervention when McGhee was in charge.

The thing that stood out the most for me in the documentary last night is probably just how good a player Mark McGhee was.
I can only imagine how much seeing him make an arsehole of himself as a manager must have hurt the fans that watched him as a player

I said that a few weeks ago when I was passing the time watching games from the 80's. McGhee was absolutely superb in pretty much every big game we played.....he could hold the ball, win headers, beat players, set up chances,score with both feet. He was almost impossible for defences to knock off the ball and he was the catalyst to damn near every goal that we scored. 

I was there in the 80's and I must admit I hadn't realised how vital a player McGhee was to that succesful Dons team. 

Thinking back though, he was never a particularly likeable player...I doubt if any Dons fan had him as 'their favourite player'. I suspect he was always a khqunt. It's just that it didn't come out much in these years....he fine tuned it as a manager.
