It was 20 years ago today…

… Hans Gilhaus’ debut for AFC. Officially one of the greatest debuts ever.

Two goals, including an overhead screamer.

Signed from the then European Champions for a then club record fee of £650,000 (“Fit? Fir yin player?”) to play alongside champagne Charlie Nicholas.

Willie’s career had basically been ended against Norway during the week, so the Dons lined up with a back four of Scottish internationals McKimmie, McLeish, Irvine and Robertson in front of Dutch cap (fnarr, fnarr…) Snelders.

Able to line up as a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3, the attack-minded side included Bett, Grant, Connor and Mason (the latter being the man to change position).

How many points would that team win the current SPL by ? Twenty? More?
