The recent history of Aberdeen FC is among the most eye-catching of any British club. It was not always so. Created in 1903, Aberdeen FC were for many years dismissed as provincial under-achievers. By 1966 when this book takes up their story the Dons had won the Scottish championship just once in 63 years. The dramatic rise in Aberdeens fortunes is due partly to a succession of dynamic managers and partly to the widened horizons provided by European competition. Aberdeen became formidable opponents not just in Scotland but also in Europe, where they are now veterans of numerous campaigns. These culminated in 1982-83 with the never-to-be-forgotten triumph over Real Madrid in the final of the European Cup-Winners Cup. This book relives the highs and lows of the mighty Dons since first qualifying for European competition in 1966-67.
