Duncan Shearer Interview


Recommended Posts


Nice bloke, sat next to him during a mid week game against Dundee Utd...Mackie was playing...let's just say he wasn't signing his praises!

Not surprised at that seeing as though it was him and Paterson who punted Mackie to Caley. They saw it, why didn't any other manager?

I took him for lunch last year, with his wife, hes a total legend, his wife was as nice a a person as you could meet to, and his stories of his Aberdeen days were brilliant. We will never see his likes again!

 

:sherlock:

 

 

I'd very much doubt that. I've been referred to as the next Duncan Shearer.

This is a great read. Totally my favourite Aberdeen player I've watched regularly and from this 100% down to earth, covering his entire playing career and coaching including the spell at AFC.

 

Going to look for his biography that it's touting too.

 

Loved Shearer... fantastic penalty box finisher. Not sure if we've had better since fatty Harper.

 

If you can imagine the exact footballing opposite of Darren Mackie...

Fantastic. I'll buy a copy...guidance please. Comparing his football careerto his brothers life makes the game seem pretty insignificant...which it is really.

I got his autobiography when it first came out about 2 years ago now maybe. Great read. Tells some cracking stories in it. I loved Shearer as a kid, perhaps took it for granted that we would always have a goalscorer in our team like him. Few times ive met him hes seemed a top bloke too.

Just looking over some stats from his first season. 2 Premier Division matches within 5 days of each other: We scored 13 goals, 6 of them by Shearer.

 

That just seems surreal now... :unsure:

 

 

Tearing the huns a new one:

 

 

 

I think my first season, I am quite sure that Eoin Jess got 19 or 20, Scott Booth got 19, 20 and I managed to get 20 plus and Mixu the same, so there was about four strikers there who were all touching the 19 or 20 goals.

 

 

& yet we cannot even get one to reach this tally now :o Although to be fair to Vernon, he'd reach 20 if he had any of these players to play along side also.

 

Sad sat times at Aberdeen

Shearer scores goal 27 of the season!!

 

Oh for a striker like that now.

 

We won nothing that season, but we played some fantastic football then and were a joy to watch back then.

:cry:

Shearers goal v Finland was one of the best goals Scotland have ever scored.

From Leighton to the goal it must have been 30 odd passes.

Dunc got his head on it scored and bust his head open, missed a few weeks for us

Has anyone got a link to it?

 

I seem to remember that goal, while magic because it was Duncan Shearer, was merely a close range bump with the head, rather than any Archie Gemmill-esque skill of astonishing degree.

 

I think what made it a quality goal was Shearer stuck his head where it was going to get clattered, and didn't even think twice about it. He focused on his job.

 

I'll tell you one thing about Duncan Shearer, he was a proper bloke. You would never see HIM with frosted tips or carrying a fucking Man-bag like the fuds we have playing for us these days.

 

I'll bet you half our current squad, with the almost certain exception of Gavin Rae, carries a Man-bag or wears flip flops.

That's it though. We didn't win a trophy BUT we were entertained, that's all the fans ask for at least is to enjoy going to matches

It's certainly the one period where I can say that I enjoyed the football week on week.

 

To young to appreciate the 80's era, but the 89 season to 93 perhaps was the only time I can say I was entertained on a regular basis.

It's been mind numbing garbage since then.

My grandad and dad both agree (or agreed in my grandads case) that whIle the Gothenburg era was great in terms of trophies, the football played by Willies early teams was of an incredible standard. Every player we had you could put in to a Scottish league select.

 

Shearer was my first real "hero", from seeing his debut against Nairn County in a pre-season friendly, until he finished with us, immense, remember his goal in the league cup final being just unbelievable, and on the way home Ally McCoist briefly cutting in to his winners interview to talk about the quality of the goal.

 

Remember him saying most folk say they don't care who scored, as long as they win, Shearer said it was crap, he wanted to be the one scoring the goals.

 

And is sniper celebration and his one armed flick were brilliant. God to have someone like that now.
