    Who do you think has been the most important players of the current 9 in a row era? Obviously been so many to choose from but if you had to name your 7 most important players/managers of that era, who would you go for?

    Apologies if there is already a thread.

    Broonie number one - and he is possibly the most important in sealing the ten but for a very different reason.

    Brown
    Forrest
    McGregor
    Tierney
    Edouard (the amount of crucial goals he scored the season Lennon came in was unreal. Fired us to the title and treble treble.)
    Lennon
    Rodgers

    He’s a * but he was a really good player for us.

    Kinda agree and he had that good goal scoring season, but I'm not sure I'd have him in a list, no more so than Izzy, rogic etc either?

    Izzy, Rogic and Tierney are good shouts as well. Should've included them on my list.

    Admittedly I'm being harsh because he is a *, but even then I (personally) wouldn't have him in a list of most important.

    The three managers and brown are the ones to be on a list for sure, Forrest for longevity.
    Honourable mentions to lustig, Izzy, etc for tenure as well.

    Brown and Forrest for longevity.

    Griffiths for the sheer number of goals.

    Rogic and Edouard for the big moments they produced in key games.

    Rodgers for taking us to another level.

    Lennon for starting it and hopefully finishing it.

    Brown (Captain and leader throughout)
    Lennon (Got the ball rolling and turned our fortunes around)
    Rodgers (raised the bar and kick up backside we needed at the time.)
    VVD (couple of seasons he was absolutely different class up here).
    Eddy (Ibrox game March 18, goals in run in 18/19 and leading talisman last year)
    Griffiths (Ronny’s second year 15/16 if not for his goals not sure where we would have been).
    Probably Forrest (for the big goals he chips in with over the piece, particularly from 16/17 onwards, he took his game to a whole new level.)

    On Ronny although he won the two titles, and had his positives in bringing through two cracker in CalMac and Tierney as well as signing Ajer, Armstrong and Christie, he also helped make Aberdeen title contenders in his second year and the football was awful. Also that semi final defeat was one one of the worst defeats to take. His first year once we got going was fine apart from the CL campaign getting put out twice and especially by Maribor who were awful, at least Legia had a decent team. However domestically he was unlucky not to win a treble given the refereeing fiasco in the ICT game.
