Former Dons and Scotland manager, Craig Brown, currently on the Pittodrie board, will visit WH Smith, St Nicholas Centre, Aberdeen on Thursday 22 May 2014 at 18.30.
He will be helping Richard Gordon, not-so-closet Dons fan, impeccably-neutral broadcaster, and author of Glory In Gothenburg, publicise his latest fitba volume Scotland ’74: A World Cup Story.

This is an early chapter in the continuing story of Scotland’s ability to find new ways of being eliminated from international tournaments.

This is a great opportunity to meet Craig, a Scottish sporting legend, and head coach last time we qualified for a major final in France 1998. He and Richard will share stories from West Germany 1974, when proper mannies’ fitba was played, commemorated in Richard’s book.

It’s an evening not to be missed – unlike that half-chance Billy Bremner had against Brazil. Forty years on, the therapy’s beginning to work.
