Here’s a guy a lot of Aberdeen fans will remember fondly; Big Davie Robb. A perrenial of the early ’70’s A&BC footballer cards Dave gianed 5 caps for Scotland. These were all towards the end of Bobby Brown’s time in charge and they don’t make for great reading; Played 5 W 0 D 1 L4 although it does include an appearance at Wembley v England as the Scots lost 3-1 with Hugh Curran of Wolves scoring the goal, which incidentally was the only goal scored when Davie was in the team so he was the not the goalscoring answer for Scotland but then again very few are. To be fair to Davie all his games were in 1971 and the full stats for that year are an alll time low. Played 10 W 2 D1 L7 F5 A14. The two wins were the first two games of Tommy Docherty’s reign.
Davie left Aberdeen to carve out quite a successful career in the NASL firstly with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and then the Philaldelphia Fury among others. At Tampa Bay he played alongside Rodney Marsh and at the Fury with the likes of Alan Ball and Frank Worthington.
