Aberdeen Football Club / Re: Battle For Third

Curious.What do you think Milnes own agenda is?

The same as it's been for the whole of almost thirty years since he wormed his way into AFC, the hapless Ian Donald not having the nous to see it coming.

The same as it's been for his whole life.

The same as it is for the vast majority of politicians and business owners. Their agendas and priorities are the betterment of them personally.

Any "love" he purports to have for football and AFC is feigned, a total sham.

Let's face it, third has zero chance of happening. Neither are Aberdeen going to win a cup.

"Success" this season will be avoiding relegation.

It therefore doesn't matter if AFC continue this bad run of form or even get worse in the weeks ahead.

The ONLY thing that matters now is preparing for the future.

That future will never be bright whilst McInnes is in charge of the "product" and we continue to allow the minority-shareholding chairman to continue pursuing his own agenda.

I mean that it’s ridiculous for a “supporter” to want, or at least be happy to see, their team getting beat under any circumstances and is something I’d have expected to read on a site full of lunatics such as AFC chat.

You lose me with that 'supporter' comment. We are all supporters with the amount of time we put into the club, including the amount of time we debate random strangers online! When fans are deeply unhappy everything done isn't for the immediate good of the club but it forces the issue. As I said, nobody wants us to lose, just like we don't want to protest, and we don't want to not watch or fail to attend games, but all of the above gives greater attention to the problem and pressures the club to change. Is that for the immediate good or for long term benefit? Pretty obvious, desperate times bring desperate measures, not fun but for change to happen things get ugly.

Brilliant speech by Sturgeon in Aberdeen right now.

Scotland MUST be independent.

Shame on the North East for voting against it AND returning a record number of Tories.

The difference between us and them is planetary.

well he certainly indicated that he is looking to move

It's hardly news though. He made his intentions very clear in August, but as Al has pointed out.....for it to happen needs the agreement of 3 parties and right now the club holds all the cards. The only problem the club has is knowing his "true" value now that he has made it clear he doesn't want to be there. We know that £3million from QPR was turned down. We also know that Villa offered £6.5million a year ago (albeit they wanted him essentially on a free 6 month trial initially and we don't know how they were intending to structure the payment(s).

Since then he has missed fair chunks of playing time through injury and suspension, his form could be described as variable in this period so despite making himself Scotland's first choice centre back (when fit), it's unlikely we will receive an offer as good as (potentially) Villa's was again. Personally I'd be telling him that he won't be transferred in January unless we receive an outrageous offer (not beyond the realms of possibility with teams in the Championship looking to bolster their squads for a promotion push or EPL teams near the bottom trying to stave off relegation). However I'd be telling him to inform his agent we would be willing to review things in summer on condition that bidding clubs meet our minimum valuation ( maybe offers over £4.5 million??) AND that they submit their offers early enough to allow us in turn to use some of that cash to bring in an adequate replacement before the window closes.

He says that he will give 100% commitment to the club while he is with us and I don't doubt he will. But he wants to be elsewhere. I'd prefer someone who wants to be with us for the journey.

Nobody fancy another 3-3 draw with them give us some excitement at weekend??  That Pittodrie draw where Josh Magennis scored deep into injury time was the last ever Aberdeen match I watched with my Mam on TV before she passed away.

watched a very uptight young man on sportscene yesterday, basically he is offski in january

That isn't his decision to make
He doesn't call the shots in this.
Requires a willing seller, a willing purchaser and dare I say lastly  willing player.
