It would bubble along even nicer if Panama could get a result at lunchtime

Well they will get a result but doubt if it'll be a good one.  Very few cars/houses with flags at the moment down here but expect that to change tomorrow.  Ah well, at least I'll be the gym to myself this afternoon.

Given that he was due to go on Shinnie's stag jaunt before they both got called up for the Scotland tour I'd say he was definitely enjoying life at Pittodrie knowing he was going to be a first pick every week. I'd agree his performances second half of the season were nowhere near the level of the first half but sure he was carrying a niggling injury that never really got he proper rest it required as our squad is/was so thinly resourced.

As for losing the ball by holding on too long........well that was Hayes' big fault too. It is just the way of things with flair players.

Aberdeen really need to move on and forget about players from the past like Christie and Hayes and concentrate on other new signings. I liked Christie and he looked as if he loved playing for us in every interview he gave but  nothing on the park near the end of his loan deal. Hayes would cost to much and I do not want him on loan. So up to McInnes to do his stuff for which he is paid.  :thumbsup:

My question is does Christie have the correct attitude to handle what would be seen as a 'step down'?
He seemed an excellent player 2 seasons back when it was seen as just a half season loan to get him some gametime and show what yon tic were missing. Once the loan was extended it seemed his heart wasn't in it as much.

Tend to agree with Ten Caat, i would have Christie in a heartbeat , obviously havn't seen 2 new midfielders play but i struggle to see where the creativity & the goals are coming from this season, hopefully will be addressed before season starts.

My question is, what creativity did Christie actually provide?  He was utter horse shit for a lot of last season. I was thoroughly disappointed with him, given how well he'd played previously.  I agree with the principle of buying someone who is young and exciting, despite his obvious skill I thought Christie lost the ball an awful lot, and held onto it far too long.

He's almost 39, and whilst no doubt he has looked after himself physically, at that age your legs can't do what they used to consistently for 90 minutes every week, sometimes twice a week.

Guessing he would have been used in the Christie role. So why not just show a bit of ambition and bid £500k for Christie. Dhims would prob reject that but certain they'd cash in for £600-750k as they know he is never going to be anything there than a bit part player.

Did we really think Christie was any good at any point last season?  Certainly latterly he was absolutely pish and a waste of a jersey.  Personally, I'm not sure he offers us enough and tries too much himself.

I sincerely hope we never considered signing Miller.

Straight from the hun to us?

That's unacceptable.

I hate the hun as any other, but if a player improves us, regardless of where he comes from, i'm all for it. Unless they've got a proven criminal record like their latest signing. Folk seem to ignore the fact he played for both celtics beforehand ??? He's just a mercenary, but a talented one at that.
