    Spot on in your analysis, Gavin. I think this could be perfect for both Brown and Aberdeen. Its a case of you don’t know what you’ve got till its gone. We all moaned when Brown was in charge of Scotland about how boring the team played and how we couldnt get past the group stages at World Cup and Euro finals. Now we would give anything for what are now seen as ‘glory days’ and actually qualify for something! Aberdeen fans didnt take to Jimmy Calderwood too well(despite what some of them claim now) and they complained about the quality of players and style of play as well as early cup exits and that he was a ‘Rangers man’. Now to finish 3rd or 4th in the league like he achieved would be seen as a return to the ‘glory days’ once more. Expectations at Aberdeen have been significantly lowered after McGhee. Despite some serious hammerings this season the club still have the same points as Hamilton and 3 points off St Mirren. I would expect Brown to bring stability, string a couple of results together, become difficult to beat and pull away from the bottom two. The way things are at the moment this would represent ‘glory days’ for both Brown and Aberdeen this season.
