Would also be amazed if they could afford the guy Collins from West Ham that they have been linked with. He's bound to be on about 40k per week at the moment.

Well there's a surprise - Martin Skrtel's deal to Rangers off as club 'cannot fund it'.

The whole thing screams naivety on Gerrard's part and/or duplicity in what Sevco promised him.

Quote
"When there is only a small difference then you can find a solution, but in this case, the salary of the player in Turkey is four or five times more than what Rangers could offer. That makes it impossible.

"Also, Fenerbahce will never let him go because he is their most important player and they need him for the Champions League qualification.

"That means at this moment the deal would cost five or six million euros minimum. And as I told you the salary is very different.

"Steven tried to make it happen but he had no idea about the financial situation of the player. He is trying to get the best players possible and that's why he spoke to Martin about this but unfortunately it's going to be impossible.

Cove v Cowdenbeath should be tasty.

It wasn't cold during the winter.

Believe me, I know all about driving in snow and ice.

It's all a joke you know, they wouldn't really move away from Pittodrie.

They'd have to be off their heads to do that.

Rico, I was referring more to his preference. He’s really not that good (despite 5 performances post split), not sure he’s in a position to prefer one over the other. He’s completely after the money, possibly realising how much he can make despite turning out average performances. League one is definitely his level.

I don’t remember Ash Taylor having any excellent games. He was shite.

He could definitely do a job in league one, and possibly low end championship. He won't be guaranteed a game for us next season with Devlin in the squad, so he could be right about it being better for furthering his career. When it comes to career, in modern footballer parlance, I think he's referring to: "how much money I can make", rather than opportunity to win trophies (second place trophy for example) or play in Europe. His ability to hoof the ball means he might fair okay down South, however he doesn't have the physical presence of even an Ash Taylor so he may just struggle a little if it came to somewhere like the championship. Good luck to him, I'd rather he was elsewhere.


I think big Ash is a good comparison. Ash was great in the air and had the odd spectacular highlight, an occasional excellent game, but overall, like OConnor, was an accident waiting to happen. Just like Ash, I have minimal confidence in AOC, it's just a matter of when, not if, an accident will cause a goal. Just because AOC had a solid post split does not a good player make.
