Do they have a lot of fog there?

 

I've no idea, I'd imagine that's the historical reason.

Always had a wee soft spot for Villa.

 

My best mate, now ten years dead sadly, was a lifelong Dons fan like me.

But when he was a kid/young teenager his Dad's work took him to Brum for, what, a year or two.

During that time he became a Villan, he was at Villa Park for THAT game against Liverpool (when was that.....77 ish?).

So I always keep an eye out for their results.....and of course big Neale Cooper had a stint there.

That's the fella

 

Blackie (my late pal) raved about that night to me so often.

 

Nealie C had a heart attack not so long ago, but he's now.on the mend.

My old games teacher's (who, occasionally, modelled himself on the guy from "Kes") claim to fame was tat he sent Neale Cooper off twice.

Age happens to us all

 

It does that, but Coop's nae 54 until November.

 

He's four months younger than me......... I think the reason is that when he was a young lad breaking into the Aberdeen 1st team he was very much the lad about town.

 

Good looking, mop of curly blond hair, he was a regular at a place called "Champers" just outside Aberdeen and could have had pretty much any woman that took his fancy.

 

Now he ......well .......looks like me!!!!

We got battered by wolves,  back to normal service  :unsure:

That is a horrible phrase to ever have been forced to say.
