Both are considered 3rd choice at their respective clubs ( though we will see if what dons8321 says regarding Ward actually happens). Woodman is still young enough to wait for his chance but Ward is now of an age where he has to become a number one choice, I think Liverpool will buy a new 'keeper shortly and Ward will at best be back up.

There's no great hurry for us to do anything but I do suspect Joe will get a better offer than we can match when his contract expires, probably from a mid level Championship side. By then it will be clear about both Ward and Woodman as to how their careers are likely to pan out. If we were willing to pay 10k a week to McGeouch we could certainly do so for one of them, though i suspect Woodman is on nowhere near that at present.

We won't find out the answer to this one for a good while but I stick to my assertation.....Rodgers will never be our first choice keeper (and I'll deliver a big "told you so" when I'm proved right  :thumbsup:)

Daily Record (I know!) reporting that Rooney is on the brink of joining Salford City.

Would assume a fee is involved if true, especially since we’re struggling to afford a decent forward given DMs recent comments.

5th Tier in English Football, crazy. But he'd be a fantastic signing for them, managed by Graham Alexander.

Would it mean we are after 2 strikers then, given that we're after one now, or has this been in the making for a few weeks now? Would definitely be sad to see him go, but I think his limits are preventing us pushing on in terms of what's required.

Cosgrove is decent enough at holding the ball up, Rooney is a decent goalscorer, and not quite sure what May is yet. But in reality, we're losing ( IF he goes ) our only natural finisher, unless May reverts to form this season.

Bizarre move if it happens. Leaves us with no scoring forwards 😕

Aberdeen star Scott McKenna a transfer target for Swansea City as Welsh side line up £2m bid

If true, let's see what Aberdeen do about a bid in the Millions for McKenna.
NEVER plan ahead.

Certainly be a test of our resolve. Can’t see it happening though, would completely fuck our season up. Have enough rebuilding to do as it is

What’s the funding shortfall for the training complex again?

If this happened for example on a season loan deal, this would be Scottish football's signing of the summer.
Just can't see it to be honest.

The last page of this thread alone is mental and must mean we’re all going stir crazy at the lack of signings.

£10k a week for anyone, never mind McGeouch?  :dunno:
Rooney going to the 5th tier of English football :dunno:
£2n for McKenna :dunno:
Getting potentially England’s best prospect on loan :dunno:

The sooner we sign a few or the end of the window comes the better.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

Theres never quotes, facts, figures in the rumour mill mate.
McKenna will attract interest. If we got 2m for him i'd bite their hand off if it went 100% into the kitty for McInnes to waste.....

Well tell us who it is that isn't signing for us at least???
It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.

But the thing is that if we got £2m for him it wouldn't go to the transfer kitty in my opinion.

I don't think i was suggesting it would mate.
