I'm not worrying about it. All I said was that it was a balloon comment.

What goes on behind the scenes is irrelevant to any debate about the publicly-uttered comment.

McInnes made a management mistake. Not a big one, not a significant one but an amateur one.

Which isn't surprising given that it's football management we're talking here.

The reason why McInnes is getting paid over half a Mill this year is a bigger debate. Being paid for his management skills as he is, and as it's our money going into his pocket, I think it's right that we start to ask questions as to whether he's worth it?

I don't see the man as being worth anything more than thanks for your service now fuck off. He is using us and we (Milne) has allowed him to use us.

Edit: Back on topic, however cheap he is or might be, I hope Sam turns out to be good recruitment. His record hardly screams it but it's been less than 120 minutes and AFC are badly screaming out for a big capable unit up top, as we always have been since god knows how long. I loved when he had a dig at Brown personally. Brown's reaction was funny too.

Going by his interview he signed what was put in front of him without much negotiation. I doubt he is even in our top 50% in terms of wages.

Happy enough with this. he's definitely earned it and it protects us a wee bit.  I'd rather see GMS sign, but know that's not happening.

I'm obviously delighted he has started scoring but looking at the teams Sam has scored against includes St.Mirren x 3, Hamilton Academical x 2, Dundee x 2 and Livingston once with penalties versus Celtic and Heart Of Midlothian it is really only opener against our Gorgie friends I would say is his most important contribution.  Surely we should now be expecting him to be grabbing goals when going to Easter Road, Rugby Park, Tynecastle, McDiarmid Park and the like.

He offers more than just goals against weak teams though Seebass. His hold up play is generally ok, he’s disciplined and wins free kicks and he usually puts in a decent shift, and there’s plenty other players in the squad who know where the goals are - McGinn and GMS, Shinnie and Ferguson have both scored important goals, and right across the back 4 Logan, McKenna, Considine and Lowe can all score. You’re right with your final sentence though, I do expect him to score every game now, but I’m not going to over-analyse it if he doesn’t, as long as he’s contributing to a solid team performance.

Thought Cosgrove's general all round play was pretty good yesterday , certainly no lack of effort, unlike some.
Only behind Shinnie in our m.o.t.m against Killie.

Can’t see why english championship sides wouldn’t be looking to sign him. Big, strong, clever, now scoring all sorts of goals. Type of forward from up here that would do well. Plus he’s a Nigel too, bound to increase interest and value.

That said, if tattie heed at the huns is worth £8 million. Cossie is worth that and more. Can’t see the clubs mentioned ponying up that.

Not a hope in hell any clubs will be viewing Cosgrove as a possible recruit right now. However if he bangs in another 10-12 goals between now and season's end he might just end up on the radar of a lower end English Championship side. Consistent performance is what they want to see not just a 2 month hot streak.
