Chris Harvey just Tweeted that McInnes has confirmed that NYC are in talks with GMS.

They contacted Aberdeen to inform them of their intention to talk to him.

If the NYC story is true then it's cheerio GMS.

Their season starts in March, there would be no point in them showing interest but waiting till his contract runs out in late May by which time half their season is gone so hopefully we can tan them for £200k (more realistically £100k but you have to at least try) so they can get him in time for their pre-season training.

Would it be worth letting him go for that little? We would then need to recruit a new winger.

NYC are funded by the same guys who own Man City, should be possible to squeeze them for a few hundred k’s you’d think?

We will need to recruit one no matter if he leaves now or in the summer.

If we force him to see out his contract, we end up with an unhappy player on our books who is inconsistent at the best of times. If his heart was no longer in it that inconsistency could convert to consistent shyteness.

I hope GMS goes to NYC and I hope they have a home game in the middle of May when I'm there. Never considered bothering with a sporting event when I'm over this time. Fuck baseball and basketball and NFL, shit sports the lot of them but I would definitely pay to see GMS in action, even though I don't rate him very highly (powderpuff) despite, sadly, he being undoubtedly one of AFC's best footballers. Never watched "soccer" in the states. I bet the crowd are interesting for their extreme obesity and their ignorance of the game.

Agreed. Even inferior sports can be enjoyed in America. They know how to entertain when the game is shite.

Many thanks Jute. Yes I've been to events in the US but wouldn't go back. Once was enough. Not been to soccer though and as they're not at home when I'm over, won't be breaking my duck this year. I will be at Bethpage for the US PGA golf - moved to May from August where it had been for every year of my lifetime - but that's not the same stadia experience that we are talking about.

I'd say it's on a par with our league, if not better. Very different style of football but not that bad.

i'd agree with that.  We get quite a bit of MLS on NZ tv and I've enjoyed the games i've watched.

Can't see it. Not with Shinnie, Ferguson, Ball, Gleeson and young Campbell all competing for the position that he would also be trying to fill. Even if Shinnie were to leave in this window (unlikely) I wouldn't want to put someone else in the way of hindering Campbell's progress.....he is the long term solution and needs to be getting as much game time as possible now

Centre mid isn't a priority. That's not to say it can't be improved, but, in order, we need a striker, a left back and another winger before we need to consider centre mid.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

Since when have you all decided Bruce Anderson is a midfielder? He started one game v. Livi and you forget he came on as a sub and scored crucial goals displaying a rare hunger and instinct for the goal and you've decided where his future should be? Insane.

I would have mulumbu if it meant shinnie was lb rest of the season.
Rocket I think you're getting ando and Campbell confused.

Indeed I did. Am I thinking right that McInnes played Anderson in midfield v. Livi? Or was it Dean Campbell he played there?

I was very drunk at the game but Anderson was in the middle of the front 3 wasn't he?
