ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
Lest we forget........
And Aberdeen remain the last side to beat Real Madrid in a European Final.
The Liverpool fans may have had issues getting in, but, looking at the stadium at trophy presentation time, getting out was piss easy.
I have to fully agree…the best of times.
I'll settle for the memories.
When you look at how utterly toxic and abhorrent modern day fitba has become, I'm just pleased to have been there during the best of times.
I fear that our proud, long held, record of being the last team to beat Real Madrid in a European Final has only a couple of weeks left.
But for one brief, shining period, we managed to put two behemoth, odious, sectarian organisations into a box and conquered Europe in our spare time.
"Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven."
We were talking about this last night and wondering if Fergie is a blessing or a curse, when you look at where Aberdeen and, Man Utd are now ?
It comes around once more.......
Happy Goteburg Day!
I recall the Shopping Mall (though the cup had gone by the time we got there), I think everyone passed through there
I don't recall it being subterranean but truth be told my attention was more on the Swedish ladies
My one regret, our flight was due back at lunch time, about half an hour before the team but we were delayed and also missed the shindig in the toon.
It was about six o'clock we got in, oh happy days.
Yes I watched it yet again, think I enjoyed it more this time, seen a few kent faces, and being hit by the wall of singing when we went into that indoor (underground ?) shopping mall when the rain came on, will live with me forever, brought tears to my eyes then and did again when I re-watched it, biggest regret is not getting back to Aberdeen in time to join in the massive street parade...but hey we were so fortunate to just be a part of it.
Aye, it is a repeat but WELL worth a re-watch.
If only to get the stench of the Euros away........
Ping : - magicrat.....this is on BBC ALBA 22:30 Monday night...
Sir Alex Ferguson recounts the season he led Aberdeen FC to European glory in Gothenburg.
On for an hour, but is probably a repeat...but hey I love repeats like this.
