Scottish Premiership:

Aberdeen v Livingston

Stand Free!

Hart....


Recommended Posts

Being rumoured on Aberdeen-mad that Cardiff are about to launch a 700,000 quid bid for Michael Hart.

 

Anyone getting a bit uneasy about all of this?

 

:

 

For fuck sake.  Anderson is a big loss and we could do without losing Hart as well.  Mon Aberdeen  board/management get our decent players onto longer deals ASAP!

Wouldn't suprise me.  Hart was excellnet last season also.  I just can't believe we could lose 2 of the best and consistent players in the team and SPL for £1.7m when Hibs sell Scott Brown for 4.5m.  Pretty sickening!

Has it not been the case that for years Aberdeen have been undervaluing players?

 

Motherwell, Hibs and several other clubs have managed to squeeze huge sums of money out of clubs for players certainly not in the class of Russell Anderson.

 

Why is this?

 

???

 

Surely another problem is that the board wait until a player is within a year of their contract ending. It means that in six months time the player can start talking to other clubs. why are contract discussions not being put in place perhaps 2 years before the contract ends?

 

Thus, if a player wants to go, players can be found to play in the position, and the player in dispute can be sold for a decent amount of cash.

If Hart has more than a year left in his contract I'd demand  1m plus - Anderson had less than a year so it was cash in now but if Hart has multiple years we can hold out for more cash or keep him.

This offer better not be accepted....  Building up everyones optimism for the first time in years, then smashing it down in a couple of days is not the correct way to go about things in a business.   :hammer:

The difference between us and Hibs is they get everyone tied up on decent contracts.  They've had damn near 10million in transfers in recent years....but they had everyone they sold tied up on 5 year deals.

 

When was the last time an Aberdeen player had a 5 year contract?

calm down, dears. it's just a poxy rumour on a barely-moderated mongboard.

 

there's no substance to this. jc has said it's inevitable other teams will start looking at our players after a reasonably successful season. it's only the fact we've been rubbish for years that has meant there's been precious little speculation in seasons gone by.

 

and i'll restate a point i made on the ando thread - we've got tons of defenders at the mo. jackie mac's a better right back than hart anyway.

 

that last point about tying people up on five year contracts is fairly laughable too. what happens if they get injured / turn to sh1te after three months? has it really come to this that we're advocating a return to the jim mclean school of management?

Well if he's for the off, lets get another million quid.

 

Mcnamara can cover there, or even Clark.

 

While we're at it, lets punt Byrne for another cool Million ;)

It can create such a bad knock - on effect....

 

The supporters will be down for the start of the season, and with the club captain gone, it could make it more difficult for guys like Severin to be persuaded to stay.

 

Whether McNamara is better than Hart is not the important thing. It is a squad game and to have both gives Jimmy options and remember that McNamara can operate both on the left and right.

 

Last season we had a settled squad, and we can all just hope that we do not start to see it being dismantled one by one, despite the money being accumulated.

The thing I'm worried about is that if Hart goes, we start the season with a completely new and unfamiliar defence, and the dodgiest of our dodgy keepers.  It hardly fills you with confidence for our Euro games, and if we don't get to the group stage, any debt cleared by these two sales will be piled back onto our balance by the end of the season anyway.
