He is a good player, but I assume this is a bit tongue in cheek?

If not, you genuinely think someone will pay £5m for a player with 7 or 8 games under their belt?

If reports are to be believed, The Rangers turned down 7-8 million for Patterson. Ramsay is every bit as good if not better and younger. I fully appreciate why you'd say its delusional to be seeking 5 million + for the lad but it's really not often Aberdeen produce a player of this calibre. The last one was probably Ryan Fraser nearly 10 years ago. 

I'd go as far as saying he's one of the best youth prospects we've had in the last 20 odd years. He's a terrific player and will only get better. IMO he's already our most valuable asset.

Personally, I hope we keep him until next summer once he's had a full season under his belt and start a bidding war as I'm sure he'll attract further attention beyond just Everton.

No doubting Ramsay has done well this season. He, along with the rest of the team, struggled in the home match v Qarabag and as has been pointed out he was found wanting defensively v Motherwell as well. I think a better measure of his current level will be found in early November as Aberdeen will have played all of the better teams in the country by that stage.

I thought Ramsay did alright in that game considering he is so young and inexperienced and the team was struggling, especially the more experienced but still young McCrorie who looked like a deer in the headlights.

The round before, I thought Mckenzie was MOTM and Ramsay probably next. 
Over the season so far, Ramsay the main standout for me.

He may need a wee rest sometimes as he’s so young, and there will be a dip in form somewhere but he has the ability, no question of that.

I've just watched the Marley Watkins interview on RedTV. Not an easy watch/listen. I like him as a player, but he didn't seem in the slightest interested in doing that interview. 

😂 

Aye. Either no interest or a bit thick.

The David Bates one wasn't easy either but you got the feeling he wasn't comfortable in front of the camera.

Someone on the radio at the weekend made the point that Watkins wasn't the brightest.

Massive citation needed for both of these in bold. He's every chance imo but atm he's proved himself to be about as good as Callum Booth was as a youngster. There's reasons that Patterson is so highly rated in comparison and it's more complex than just "he plays for Rangers".

Such as .

I mean just as a single example there's playing well and scoring in the knockout rounds of the Europa league versus looking decent against a couple of complete diddy outfits in the Europa Conference qualifiers.

Yes you're right actually, Callum Booth had played an entire season before Walter Mittys in the Hibs support decided he was worth millions of pounds, not a handful of starts and a decent cross or two. So the OP is in fact being far more melodramatic than I first suggested

So impressing at a far higher standard than Ramsey ever has.

A simple Google search will show you where both were playing at the same age.

Then take in to account what level the two teams are at. Aberdeen are fighting for third with a good Hibs side. In 10/11 Hibs were fighting for 9th with a shite Aberdeen side.

Those 90 minutes against Dunfermline in the cup you mean?

Ah so you're saying booth was impressive for a team struggling at a certain level, while Ramsey has been impressive for a team doing relatively well at the same level. Seems to me like that would suggest one player was more impressive than the other as a young player. 

Your comment re age is very relevant in the world we live in, the one where players develop and degrade at exactly the same ages!

But anyway, I'm sure it's all fine and you'll definitely get your 5 million minimum plus add-ons for the guy with a dozen-odd appearances who's definitely better than Nathan Patterson, which I'll remind you is the moon howling opinion I was originally responding to

Callum Booth was playing for Arbroath and Brechin in the fourth tier of Scottish football at 18. Calvin Ramsay has played 6 times in Europe and is a regular in an SPFL Premier League side at the same age (turned 18 in July). You've claimed he's proved himself to be about as good as Callum Booth when he was playing levels above where Booth played. He's already played more European football than Booth has in his whole career.

It's easier to say you've made a c**t of it and move on pal.

Again, the bold is very relevant because players develop at exactly the same age, and no one who was impressive at 18 has ever gone on to ultimately disappoint or vice versa. Playing some Icelandic diddies is not "levels above" where Booth played in his breakthrough season you lunatic.

And yes, a throwaway joke about a young Callum Booth (who is, however, legitimately a better  comparator to Ramsey at this precise moment than Scottish internationalist and late-stage Europa league player Nathan Patterson) is making a c**t of it and you lot nodding along sagely as your resident fantasist says you'll be getting 5 million quid right now for a guy who's played a handful of games is very clever and sensible. Never change Dons!
