:agree:

When I grew up watching Hibs we knew Aberdeen as the Huns of the North. It was the Ian Durrant/Neil Simpson clash which kicked off the hatred between both sets of fans and the Northern Huns tag for Aberdeen wore off through time.

Having grown up in the North of Scotland, I think your talking rubbish though when you read what I right below I can see why a southerner would think this way.

In the 60s and early 70s, the majority of the people in the North of Scotland were protestant of varying types. In my class at school, we had 27 protestants and one token catholic - one of a family of 10 children!!!

You either supported the local team (many did) or you supported Rangers. There was very few Celtic fans around.

Then the oil boom happened and we were to find that the local schools became taken over by these odd people, the hard men that wished to pick a fight with anyone type and spoke in an alien language. Yes, the weegies had arrived. That was when I first heard the term "fenian".

I do think the majority did have a preference on whether they were "a Celtic" or "a Rangers" fan. However, the majority supported their local team first and foremost. It's probably the realisation of what being "a Celtic" or "a Rangers" fan really meant that the hatred for both started. It had started long before that tackle, trust me!

Let me think, Aberdeen are sponsored by a company called Saltire. The saltire is Scotland's national flag and the colour used is..................blue.

What's wrong with having blue as your second strip? It's not like those horrible people from the west own it.

Aberdeen have had blue away tops before. I can remember them wearing navy at least twice in relatively recent times.

Navy is about as close to Rangers blue as that top pictured (albeit at a different end of the blue scale) so I'm struggling to see the issue.

Sorry mate .... no matter what you think of Aberdeen they have won two European trophies and IMO that makes them entitled .... same as the team that went out of existence were entitled to one star for winning the Cup Winners Cup and Celtic are entitled to one for the European cup.

As for Aberdeen's away top ..... I think it looks quite smart, but its blue and anything blue, especially light blue, is gonna go down like a lead balloon, coz they for sure hate the Huns :greengrin

Yes. Cup Winners Cup and European Super Cup the following season (beat Hamburg iirc). Sevco's stars are, I think, to mark the number of trebles the deceased club managed.

In Scotland there is no such thing as entitlement to stars - you can put as many on for whatever reason that you like, hence Rangers with their 5, Aberdeen with 2, in Germany, Italy etc they are only awarded for specific achievements, without belittling Aberdeen's super cup win, can you imagine how many stars other clubs would have all over their shirts if they did the same?

Completely different situations though. How many football teams wear maroon? Blue is an extremely common colour, hell even our national team wear blue. Not to mention the fact that Rangers aren't even their local rivals.

At the risk of sounding like a hun, the fact that their fans are so upset by this just reeks of obsession imo

I know that mate ... Even UEFA don't officially sanction it, but IMO its generally accepted that stars indicate a European trophy, though clubs all over Europe use them for other purposes .... In Scotland nobody apart from the old Huns used them to indicate domestic success, which was daft coz as you say we could all be using bloody stars. In that context though I still say Aberdeen are entitled to have them more than the old Huns were for example.

It's a star for every ten league titles. Seeing as they've yet to win the top league in Scotland I don't know why they insist on doing it.

Interesting. During the 70s and 80s I never missed a Hibs game home and away and it was certainly a well used descriptor (based on my experience) of Aberdeen (by Hibs fans). To be honest I never quite got it, as unlike the fans of many Scottish clubs at that time, Aberdeen fans never used to fly the UJ or sang the Billy Boys ditties.

I always thought UEFA should commemorate the advent of European football by allowing the participants in the very first ever European competition to have the exclusive right to wear something on their strips ...... Perhaps a badge saying 'European Original' or something.

I'm not seriously bothered about stuff like that in reality ......... but it wouldn't half piss off the Yams :greengrin

Not really fussed about change strips to be honest. Most fans would happily settle anything that looks good or indeed would sell and bring in revenue on the provision that the first team strip never gets tinkered with too much.

I admire them trying something different but I think this is a big mistake by club and they'll likely suffer for it- no sales. Strange decision in the first place anyway, the sheep Hun rivalry is hardly unknown.
