I'm just hoping that McInnes' first choices are either proving difficult to get or are likely to take some time to come, so he's got a few back-up players in early to ensure we've a team for the early rounds of the Europa League. At the moment we'd be threadbare - McGinn, GMS (even if he stays), F.Ross all likely to be missing, Wilson away, Ball not yet signed, Shaughnessy has dragged on that long it's looking unlikely.

In that regard, Main, Taylor, Hedges and one or two more leave us in better shape than we ended last season.

But hopefully over summer the standard of signing is going to be much higher.

At the moment the signing I am waiting for most is the autograph gms gives next. Would love it if we kept him.  Still annoyed we didn't try and get Scott Allan.

Agree about Allan but supposedly he had his heart set on joining Hibs...he thought Celtic were releasing him last summer but for whatever reason suddenly reneged on it and asked for a fee.

We may well have tried to get Allan, Halkett and a whole other bunch of players but a lot of people prefer to live in the central belt. The money we offer is only marginally more then Hibs and Hearts as they are both similar sized clubs.

Daily Record reporting we're still interested in Scott Pittman. He signed a new contract in March remember, so would naturally involve us paying a fee, just never been impressed with him any time I have seen him, would be underwhelmed if we paid for him.

Also rumours resurfacing that we're going to back in for Christian Doidge, strange one if that's true, given we've added Main, and already have May & Cosgrove. Of course they could be moved on, sold in Cosgrove's case.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

They're taking a flyer. Not a hope in hell we will paying a fee for him, reports that he's interesting some Yank team in Cincinnatti...may be a bit more legs in that one given his father was a US international.

As mentioned several times, he was at the very best, a squad player. This isn't a gut punch or even remotely disappointing news.

We do though, need at least 3 midfielder's now. 1 x CAM, 2 x CDM.

Unless McInnes has aspirations of heading into next season with Gleeson & Ferguson as our sitting pair. Fuck that  :eek:

Read this morning that we have pulled the plug on Shaghnessey deal. Not surprising with Ash Taylor coming in.

Indeed, saw something similar, if not the same thing, apparently Shaughnessy's old man was the problem, is he is agent or something? Joe was all but happy to sign the deal on the table but his old man wanted more wages ( Apparently )

So that's St Johnstone and now ourselves, pulled the plug. He'll end up at St Mirren or Motherwell.

Probably just wants to go back to living in England, wouldn't have been pissed off if he signed but hardly gutted he's not. Honest, hardworking, pro, good luck to him

I think we might end up missing Ball which is a fucking devastating comment to have to make. :(

Did not even know we had released him. Thought he always looked decent when I saw him for U20s and he was getting rave reviews for Alloa before he got injured.

Stewart confirmed as signing for sevco. Bizarre signing for them, but at least hes not coming here.

There is a player in Greg Stewart, he's shown previously ( Dundee, earned a move to Engerland ) , and more recently ( Killie ), that there's a player in him, he was shite for us, and for me personally, that was due to our manager not utilising him correctly.

Having said that, he had 2 opportunities here, and given his performances whilst here, we certainly won't miss him and I am sure almost everyone will agree that they're glad he's not here ( Although allegedly McInnes pursued him up until a few days ago ) based on his time here. Will he cut at the Hun reprobates? Personally, I don't think he will.

Only two year not three or four
Fuck him, no loss to us

And more importantly...no gain to sevco.

Just cannot see him being anything other than a bit part player. He would probably do fairly well coming off the bench with half an hour to go and sevco already 2 or 3 up but just cannot envisage him ever being a starter. And I reckon he will be punted out on loan if not in January then certainly this time next year.
