Except he was miles better than Flood, technically and positionally. His running was generally not headless chickenery, it was - for the most part - targetted and relentless. The times it wasn't were usually when everyone else had stopped working or he'd already run himself into the ground. A yellow card every 3 games is absolutely fine for a player that was regularly making up for others' lack of workrate, which he was (especially in that Motherwell game, where he was pap alongside a host of other pap). Two Scotland managers, and pretty much every pundit on the BBC agrees with me. You seem to be thinking I'm saying that he was the perfect player. I'm definitely not. Like TC, I don't think he'll suit the game down South either. The limitations to his game are more apparent down there and his obvious attributes of drive, strength, fitness and workrate significantly less useful. I think he'd also reached the peak of his game in midfield and I don't see any avenues for him to improve as his passing isn't good enough to be like Jack or Ferguson or the like.
Can't agree with you on him being positionally better than Flood, the amount of fouls Shinnie gave away after getting caught out of position was staggering, notice how much Shinnies flaws showed up in games after Jack left, Jack covered for him quite a bit and Shinnie struggled when the onus was on him to dictate the midfield.

Two Scotland managers agree with you, that doesn't hold much weight when they are picking from a small pool of players and he's only managed 6 appearances, one of which he got completely shown up in.

*** cue the pride being prickled and the insecurity of the weak intellect manifesting itself in failing to back down and digging deeper and deeper. It's incredible how it can't concede any single point, ever, typically of the stupid.

Please! Sell Cosgrove for anything about 500k. I think there’s very little between Cosgrove and main, and if Main is given the time and patience we gave Sam we’ll get similar results, especially if we give him penalties.

Saying that, they are both shite and I’d rather have Wilson up top. Means we have to change our style of play though which means DM has to coach and adapt. Would prefer this option if DM was a capable coach.

My preferred option though is to sell and sign two players, ideally permanent or alternatively loan. A forward and a creative number 10. If we can loan Maddison or Christie DM saw the need for that, surely he sees the need now.

Out of curiosity, who thinks Kyle lafferty is better than Cosgrove and main? Regardless of him being a cunt.

Wilson is absolutely fucking horse shite. We'd have change our style of play to learn how to play with ten men. Cosgrove has taken the close season to work hard and vastly improve his game in every area. Main is a shite Stevie May and wouldn't close to the same results as Cosgrove. Cosgrove is winning headers, taking the ball down and bringing others into play, tracking back, not making rash decisions at corners and appears to have actually learned how to shoot too.

If you seriously believe he was one of the best midfielders in the league then you are actually mental.  Plenty of games where he ran around missing tackles, giving the ball away and failing to intercept the ball and these were in games that he'd surely be dominating if he was as good as you think he was.  Motherwell cup game when they horsed us down there being one of the worst performances I've seen from an Aberdeen player, if he wasn't classed as "one of our own" he'd have been slaughtered but oh no the usual shit got spouted like "at least he cares" "He shows passion and that's what we want".

Many Aberdeen fans are happy to wank over the passion he showed and simple ignore the basics that he continually failed to do, he was averaging a yellow card every 3 games and was bordering on being a liability as a midfielder, I get the role he was intended to do but much like Flood when he done a similar role there were more games than not where it wasn't needed.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Hateful 8 although again I know of a fair few who didn't. If it's as good as that I'll be delighted.

The Hateful 8 had some good bits for sure but I was probably expecting too much, with QT having produced some of my favourite films of all time, Pulp Fiction being the best. I thought Jackie Brown was vastly underrated and that plus Django and Inglorious - in no particular order - would be included in my all-time top 5.

This one was better than Hateful but not in my top list. It was gripping entertainment for the whole 2 hrs 40. And stay to the very end, past the credits. It's worth it...

Typo. Anything above 500k I think is realistic but I’d certainly reluctantly accept a pitiful 5 mill I suppose.

Did I miss any hints from DM of late that we are not finished in the transfer market? DM saw the need for Maddison and Christie and brought them in, surely he sees the news now for a similar player.
