Didn't realise Tom Jones came from them. Not unusual for me to forget.

We have MANY links to the other Dons....Miles Storey, Tom Jones, Juan Cobian, Nicky Hammond, Rory Fallon, Adam Rooney and Scotty Leitch.

Missed out the biggest link - big Dunc

He was mentioned above mate.

Aberdeen are the Don's, play in red. We are SwinDON. How much more do you need? Duncan Shearer etc.

I had to look up Scott Leitch. I know he was a bit of a legend at Hearts but wasn't aware he had played for the Dandy Dons. Indeed he hadn't. A disastrous assistant manager spell working alongside Mark McGhee only lasted 8 months and included a 9-0 loss to Celtic, ouch!!

Im getting fucked off with this Wigan saga. Make an example of them. Expel them. How many times have they failed to pay their players? Utter joke.

It’s probably more accurate to say ‘chosen’ not to pay.

 Leeds United’s chairman Andrea Radrizzani offered to use the club’s Elland Road stadium as security for a £26m bank loan which his company, Aser, and a bidding partner, Gestio Capital, intended to use to complete a takeover of Sampdoria.

Is this even legal?

Wasn't that what got Bury and Derby in the shit?  Albeit on a smaller scale..

Edit:  Might have been Bolton..

Anthony Taylor being abused by some human scum on his way back from Budapest. If I ever give up on football, it’ll be because of something like this. Disgraceful, what is wrong with these degenerates?

I see quite a lot of stuff on SM saying Jose Mourinho's behaviour has a lot to do with this kind of reaction. I didn't watch the game and haven't seen any of what he has done, but seemingly he has spoken out in public against the performance of Anthony Taylor in an extremely aggressive manner. It reminds me of when Anders Frisk had the 'temerity' to send off Chelsea's Didier Drogba which resulted in Mourinho alleging that Frisk had invited the Barcelona manager into the referee's room at half time. The fall out of this was that Frisk retired due to death threats against his family.

There is so much shite bubbling about in society these days which i absolutely abhor. Since Covid in my eyes the world has changed. Of course there are multiple other factors, cost of living, a war in Eastern Europe, geo-political issues, protests etc etc. There is so much anger, negativity, hatred and impatience in all walks of life. This also of course spills into the football 'arena'. I'm closer than ever to giving up on the game, every time I see a report of players receiving racist abuse it just makes me want to walk away completely. Sorry I went off topic there a bit Qunk, but the behaviour against Anthony Taylor, walking through an airport with his family (I think it was his wife with him in obvious distress) was disgusting and if I was a Roma fan I would be embarrassed. (although they won't, they'll be on social media blaming Lazio fans or the Italian Government or something rather than owning their cowardly behaviour of fellow fans)

It's a huge shame because football does so so much good in society.
