  1. Tam Scobbie

    I'm sure he'll still enjoy watching his old team play in the cup final from a pub in Magaluf.
  2. Tam Scobbie

    Scobbie doesn't often get niggles, but has been susceptible to quite a few bad injuries over his years with us, and obviously now at United too. Feel sorry for him - the United fans seem to quite like him and he's clearly a decent guy. Hope he gets himself fit soon.

    Chances of us making a signing today are non-existent, IMO.

    I'm not really sure what the club can say. Tommy has explained why Kane has left on loan, he's said constantly that he's after a striker. in some interviews, he's said he's after 2 players and that we've been speaking to potential signings. We've got 3 weeks until the window closes. Some potential targets have gone elsewhere, but lets be honest, none of them were THAT great anyway (Sammon, Storey and Graham managed about 10 goals between them last season) and others were never likely to come off anyway (May). I would rather not be going into the first home league game with question marks over our striking options, but we've dealt with much worse odds before and been ok. If it gets to the last week of the window and there's radio silence about new players, I think that's the time to worry.

    The board have delivered Tommy's top targets for wide left and 'attacking midfield'. We are clearly still in the market for a striker and there's no evidence anywhere - other than a few articles and rumours of a meeting between Sammon and Wright - that suggest we were even in for these guys (I would suggest we at least talked to them, but who's to say it was followed up with any kind of offer?) The one mistake I see so far in all of this is letting Kane go before we had the replacement secured and in place. Reading Naysmith's interview, they'd chased Kane for most of the summer and I'm sure they would've waited at least another week for us to get a replacement. There's still 3 full weeks left in the window. I don't see too many potential options out there, but I am sure the manager and board are in discussions with players they feel will improve the squad. I'd be lying if I said I'm not starting to feel a bit anxious, especially as only have 2 senior strikers currently on our books, but we've got to just trust the club to get someone in place.

    Spoony. Most of the rest were shite.

    If Watson does end up leaving, I think injuries and circumstance have been the end of him. He's been out most of last season and we weren't really affected by it. Clive Smith's performances probably helped convince Tommy that Comrie would be adequate back up for Foster and he'll be much cheaper. I feel a bit sorry for Watson. He's a good player but injuries have effectively ruined his career to date. Storey doesn't really fit in that Aberdeen team, in much the same way MOH doesn't fit into Rangers. Most teams don't give Aberdeen much space in behind and Storey's primary strength (for me anyway) is his pace and directness. He'll fit in much better with us, particularly away from home. We're a decent counter attacking team and having two players as quick as MOH and Storey would be great for us, especially when added to the cleverness and guile of Wotherspoon, Scougall and Maclean.

    Agree. Been very impressed whenever I've seen Comrie this pre-season in particular. One more push to get a quality striker in. It's clear we're going for a high profile player - here's hoping its the quality of player you've mentioned above rather than a huddy like Sammon.

    I'd like to welcome Inchcolm back to the forum.

    Scott Tanser, Stefan Scougall, Callum Hendry and Kyle McClean all fit in very well to our over 30s club IMO.
  11. Disabled Parking at McDiarmid

    Fair enough.
  12. Disabled Parking at McDiarmid

    Am I understanding this right... you're happy to try and get free parking for yourself at McDiarmid Park, but you're not willing to do so for others making the very same request until you've sorted yourself out? I might be picking this up wrong, but surely as a representative of a group of supporters, the same rules should surely apply to everyone and you shouldn't be getting additional perks not on offer to others in a similar position. I might be jumping in with two feet here, so apologies if I am. I can't fathom the logic of charging disabled people for their spaces when it has been free for so long. It seems like such an unnecessary PR own goal. I appreciate the number of spaces on offer has diminished but for the sake of an extra £500 a season, this just seems stupid.
  13. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Agree 100%. Sammon offers a similar option to Cummins. Storey is totally different to the 3 strikers we already have. We're not likely to find someone who'll score us 25 goals a season, so having variety up top should be what we try and do.
  14. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Storey is at least a different kind of player to what we already have. He's fast and direct and his decent season was his year at Inverness just prior to the one just finished. We apparently have permission to speak to him. Perhaps suggests we've made a cash offer which Aberdeen have accepted?
  15. Player Contracts + Transfers

    If Sammon was coming in to replace Cummins or Kane, I'd have no problem with this. He offers nothing that those two don't though and I'd rather go for someone like Habran who has something different in his game. I'm sure Sammon will do a job for us if he does sign but he's not really an alternative option to others in the squad.
