You are correct in the geography sense, but it was not the GFA which allowed NI people to be declared British. I was born in 1971 British, and I’ll die British. We didn’t get any right to Britishness from the GFA, in actual fact it allowed people in NI to claim their Irishness. The opposite.The UK is England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland.
Great Britain is England, Scotland & Wales.
So, Northern Ireland is part of the UK but isn't part of Great Britain.
The Good Friday Agreement gave people born in Northern Ireland the right to claim British Citizenship.
In a similar way, residents of the Channel Islands also have the right to claim British Citizenship, despite the Channel Islands not being part of Great Britain or the UK.
Yep, Stephane Adam was high on Adocatts wish list (...or Murrays) at the time I'm sure. Couldnt agree game time I think. Right cracking striker though.My uncle - Hearts man - always went on about how Stephane Adam was one of the best he’d seen. Also scored against us in the 98 Scottish Cup Final.
Seriously.....Stavrum? Gillhaus was a class above him at Aberdeen. Even went to the World Cup with Holland whilst an Aberdeen player and started matches along side the likes of Van Basten and Gullit. Stavrum couldn't lace his boots.Zeroalli at Aberdeen?
Stavrum at Aberdeen?
Skatchel at Hearts ?
Nemsadze or Caberello at Dundee?
I know these are probably spelt wrong but can’t be arsed looking up
ravanelliNot including guys who were near the end of their career like Sauzee or Ravanelli etc.
Based on how they played here not what they went on to become.
Obviously further clarification is needed. When I say foreigner I mean not Scottish, English, Welsh or Northern Irish.
If you had to pigeon hole him,more of a 10, but he was simply a fantastic footballer.Hadnt heard of him, before my time, but a wee google search and he seemed to have some career path. Ferencvaros, Standard liege, Aberdeen, ajax, dortmund! Wikipedias got him as a midfielder with 10 goals in 26 games for aberdeen, is that right or was he more of a winger/ number 10?
