Sky supposedly saying Aberdeen will make one more signing today. Assuming it must be the 3rd choice keeper unless there’s something out of the blue coming in.

I'd say he's worth the gamble for any team looking for goals. I guarantee he'll be back in the top flight within 15 months. He'll score goals.

He'll grab 15-20 for Ayr this season

I wouldn't be so sure. If he doesn't score goals, and become a contender for Championship player of the season, then it's a pretty certain sign that he's not good enough. By the age of 22 it's looking increasingly like he isn't unfortunately.

I don't think it was ability this time. He had his chance and then fucked it catching covid. We were then desperate for another striker and then he got injured too!

They've had their punishment for that though. I know everybody thinks McInnes has his favourites, but he would lose the respect of the dressing room if he treated some of 'the 8' differently to others.

When you look at a comparable young Scottish striker Nisbet. He's scored 6 and has one assist from 8 appearances this season (assuming wiki is correct). Anderson has scored less than that in his career so far, and he's only a year younger. Even Cosgrove is less than 2 years older and he's been our top scorer for 2 seasons in a row. I'd love to be proven wrong, but save from an absolute knockout season at Ayr, I would expect he'll be away permanently next summer.

No I meant he got covid and a knock then missed games. Edmondson got injured and then we had to get Watkins in. He's now ended up fourth/fifth choice when he would have had the chance to be first choice.

He also didn't suit the style of football we were playing previously also. Hopefully he bangs them in and comes back in January ready to score goals for us.

Ahh apologies, I thought you meant that McInnes has stopped trusting him since the Covid incident.

Agree he doesn't suit the punt and run style of the previous two seasons.

According to twitter we are signing Leigh to play CM to push McCrorie in to centre back.

Can you imagine some of these people trying to complete a jig saw puzzle?

This better never happen !

Makes sense if true, but big anti-climax.

Woods confirmed.

Derek McInnes said, “It’s come to light in recent days that Tomas will require an operation and is likely to be out for a number of weeks. We therefore felt the need to sign an experienced goalkeeper to provide cover, and also provide competition for Joe in the months ahead

Oof, didn’t even look at that. Were fans thinking we were really going to sign Campbell? That’s some wishful thinking.

Think the transfer window has been fantastic for us - we look so much better this season. 

We should aim higher but this season finishing 3rd will be more important than previous with the new European set up.  Scotland next season will be ranked 14th so if we finish 3rd then all we need to do is win 1 fixture and we are in the group stages, starting in the Europa League and then if we fail then Conference League. If we finish 4th then we will have 3 games in the conference league. If we qualify for the champions league then we could have 3 chances of qualifying - that makes a mockery of competition fitba.
