    Truly tragic news. Spoke to him only a few weeks ago at McDougall's 60th birthday party. Great great guy.

    Hard to know what words to say.
    Incredibly sad news.

    He may be gone & gone far too soon, but his legendary status will last longer than all of us.

    RIP Neale Cooper.

    Hopefully not too soon, but Neale liked a laugh.

    From “Fergie Rises”.....

    “He (Frank Beckenbauer) said I was as close to him as a player as he’d seen.
    It was a huge compliment.
    But as I always say, it just goes to show, even Franz Beckenbauer can talk some amount of sh1te”.

    Shocking and terribly saddening news. Saw him a few days ago in Riverside Drive with a few other guys, all in track suits, including some younger guys, looked like some kind of training thing. I know he'd had health problems, but he gave every appearance of being a fit, healthy man.

    Very much part of my memories of our golden age. RIP Neale.

    Taken to young
    Hard to take in
    Loved his smile and commitment
    Scoring at Hampden Park and doing the somersault roll.

    Very sad news indeed. One of the guys who gave us our best memories of an Aberdeen side.

    For people of our age group, probably everyone’s 2nd favourite AFC goal. Remember standing at Hampden that day and absolutely loving that goal. Smashing it in from 1 yard and giving it big licks.

    One of my favourite football moments of all time was when he put Charlie Nicholas up in the air in what must have been under 1 second from kick off.

    Only folk that were there will remember the tension before that game.

    It was so bloody obvious that Fergie had told him to get stuck in

    Only the young Cooper could have taken him so literally

    I watched an interview when he spoke about that one. For a week Fergie had mentioned Charle every single time he saw him. When the game kicked off he immediately wiped him out and there was total mayhem with Timmy going mental , With ref trying to get some sort of control and through the madness that was ensuing ,he stole a glance over to the dug out to see Fergie giving him the thumbs up :-)

    Absolutely gutted to hear his horrible news.

    A true club legend, gone too soon.

    RIP Tattie

    I remember this well. Nicholas never got out the centre circle. Was at least a booking but happened so quick that the ref didn't do anything. Convinced this was part of Fergie's master plan to quieten down an on form Nicholas, and Cooper executed it perfectly. We won 4-1 that day.

    Was it not 3-1 where we went a goal down then Eric Black scored the “perfect hat-trick” with a left foot, right foot & headed goal?
    Maybe my memory is playing tricks.

    Just saw something on Twitter which seems apt tonight...

    “Heroes get remembered... but legends never die”.

    The first (& youngest) of the Gothenburg team to leave us.

    Think Black’s hat trick was at Parkhead, the day Bayern were scouting us before the QF.

    I’ve had the privilege, as many of you probably have, of meeting him in the pub and hearing all these stories first hand. That Charlie one is one of the best.
