I'd imagine if we got Ojo onboard then yes McGeouch would be a no go. But if he chooses Hibs then I think we will be back in for him.

Not sure who I'd prefer tbh. On balance, probably Ojo….. purely in that I don't rate McGeouch at all. I know nothing of Ojo so he gets the benefit of any doubt.

Based on what I saw today we do need an experienced holding midfielder to play alongside Ferguson with Bryson ahead as our #10. Wouldn’t mind seeing Gallagher at right back, certainly got the engine to bomb up and down and give Shay the kick up the arse he needs.

I thought Shay was pretty good last night, barring his odd lapse in concentration that eventually led to their goal. But defensively he was sound and showed plenty of energy getting up and down the wing, much more like it from him. 

 
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.

Apparently Ojo is up here having signing talks, after we upped our offer, tbh i would imagine we could/would offer a better  deal than them & yes the media seem to now be suggesting we are favourites for his signature. :dunno:

From Robert Thomson, of The Sun.

Aberdeen will announce his arrival in the next 24 hours and he will be registered for the next round of the Europa League if they get past Finns RoPS.

A reporter for ScunthorpeLive has also confirmed that he's signing a 2 year contract with us.

Will wait for the confirmation from ourselves obviously, but if these guys are to be believed, then welcome aboard Funso.

One game does not a player make. Been gash the best part of two years now. Gallagher is on the up, Shay the opposite direction. Would be a good permanent signing.

He's a good experienced Full Back, who chips in with the odd goal, assist and can defend against wingers. He's still one of the better RB's in the League and whilst I agree that he's not been at his best this last 12-18 months, he still has a season or two in him.

Gallagher for me, on the basis of last night, would be a good wide attacking midfield option, who can help out the full backs as well as create plenty. Similar to McGinn of old and Hayes, when he was here. Hopefully Virtanen can take over Logan's position when he eventually leaves/retires, unless we bring in another permanent RB to replace him.

Shame we look like signing another non-scot. Our team might only feature two or three scottish players this season. I'd expect only McKenna (if still here), Bryson and Ferguson are certain of a starting place when fit. We must have as many English players now as there has ever been at Pittodrie.

Aye that thought had occurred to me too. I don't think we will ever reach the position of oldco where they regularly started with a team of 11 non-Scots but the days of fielding 11 Scottish players I think are gone forever. Bosman has seen to that.

Imagine Ojo made another U-Turn and signed for Hibs after all....... :o

Expected the lad to be announced today, but looking unlikely, perhaps we'll get it on Monday. I see plenty of News sources claiming we were trying to sign John Bostock on loan from Toulouse, but ended that due to the arrival of Ojo.

Not long off having a gander at Hivs.net........supposedly Heckingarse has said Hibs no longer interested in Ojo...words to the effect of "only want players who really want to play for Hibs". Their supporters now think Ojo is mince....they weren't saying that on Thursday. They also seem to believe that McGeouch will also join us eventually.

Sky Sports apparently saying we’re in for James Morrison on a free. Certainly plenty experience there so from that perspective he’d definitely be good for Ferguson and Campbell. Both Edinburgh teams sniffing about too.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?
