3 Best & Worst signings your club has made

Recommended Posts

Worst signings

1. Robbie Winters for Billy Dodds plus cash. 

Winters was distinctly average and Dodds went on to be a regular for Scotland

2. Jackie Macnamara.

Absolute past it Charlatan and wage thief. lived off his reputation of what he achieved at Celtic and contributed sweet FA with an Arrogant attitude.  Never been so angry with one of our own after the QoTS semi debacle.

3. Calvin Zola

A big useless tree.

Best signings.

1.Hans Gillhaus.

Signed to PSV Eindhoven as a replacement for Ruud Gullit, and was an integral part of  their treble winning season including the European cup. Signed to Aberdeen after being relegated to the bench the following season after the acquisition of Romario. Played at Italia 90 for Holland.

On his Debut for Aberdeen scored a brace including an overhead kick. The following week scored the only goal in a match v Rangers. 

2. Charlie Nicholas.

I just remember the buzz around school when he signed. Definitely the most exiting signing ever. A genuine household name.

At one time the highest paid player in the U.K . Finished joint top scorer in the Scots Premier leaugue.

Those who have only watched football through the sky TV -/ Champions league era will scarecely believe Aberdeen and Scottish football could attract such a high calibrate of player. Modern football really is terrible.

3. Duncan Shearer.

Bought from Blackburn where he played alongside Alan Shearer, headline writers had fun at dons fans expense with " Shearer moves from Blackburn to Aberdeen" type headlines. 

Abolute hero, prolific scorer and scorer of important goals.  His half volley to clinch the dons 3rd in the nervy first leg relegation playoff and his goal in the 1995 league cup final are 2 of my favourite moments supporting the dons.
