The Famous Aberdeen - Season 2021/22

Just so you all know, this transfer was very, very legal. 

To be fair, fans have been demanding to know what’s happened with this deal and I don’t think they would have got away with just saying “Ronnie has joined Atlanta and we wish him well for the future”. I appreciate Cormack’s transparency but the 12 paragraph statement is probably about 9 paragraphs too long.

I know they have, but the absolute sure-fire way to invite questions on the legality of a transfer is to explicitly state that the transfer was above-board and there’s nothing to look at here

We were literally discussing that several posts before your own 🤷🏻‍♂️

Shame it didn’t work. Was never given a chance by McInnes and I can’t blame the guy for wanting to be nearer his family after spending lockdown here alone.

This transfer is cloaked in mystery; however, the evidence (the McInnes preference on players that had played in the British game, and the fact that he barely played him) suggests that McInnes was presented with this player. If that was the case then I can fully understand why McInnes didn't play him.

I'm not sure that the player himself (Hernandez) or the manager (McInnes) understood why he had ended up at Aberdeen. Most fans didn't either.

Of course, the restrictions were tough on the player and his family. Although, I assume the family wasn't with him in Norway either.

There was something rotten to the core with regards this transfer and Cormack was at the centre of it. I remember when I first heard about it one Friday afternoon and it seemed odd straight away.

That Hernandez transfer news in fact indirectly told us that McInnes days were numbered.

Aye, how often do we pay 800K for player?

Pesonally i think the Hernandez affair was more about Dave trying to play at being a manager and less about doing anything shady. I just can't see what the shadiness would be. Could be wrong but we'll never know.

Same

And I really don’t care anyway

I think it’s been a bit bizarre how invested some Aberdeen fans have got in this

We bought a player, the manager didn’t like him, he moved on and we recoup most of the losses 

Hey ho

Yeah, it’s clear we became aware of this through Atlanta and Cormack railroaded it through with his own money, whether McInnes wanted the player or not. I’m not necessarily blaming DM in that situation but if we’re going to be spending nearly £1mil on a player, he needs to be a guaranteed starter before he walks in the door.

He wouldn’t have been with his family all the time in Norway but he wouldn’t have been stuck in a house on his own for months on end not able to train or socialise with his teammates.

A strange situation all round. Funnily enough, if we were selling Ramsay for a few million and bringing in a player of Hernandez’s ilk (sanctioned by HoR and/or the manager this time), it would probably have worked out a hell of a lot better. I wouldn’t be against us making a move like that again with the structure and staff we now have in place.

Why bring nails in Glass’s coffin into a non story that hasn’t happened? Are you Dunbartonshirered in disguise?

Yeah I don’t realistically think we would sign the thumb, even though it may stop Dundee from scoring against us.

Not sure I agree. 

There was definitely more to it than meets the eye and whilst I’m not suggesting it’s something earth shattering, it was a clear outlier in terms of how we do our business and closely tied to the new arrangement with Atlanta. I’m certainly interested to know what really went on. But then I’m a boring b*****d.

Pleased to see that it also looks like the Atlanta stuff has calmed down a bit. 

Will probably go on to be a bit of a knowledge share, with youth players being loaned to each other for some development.

Which is a much more sensible arrangement. There has definitely been a few red flags early on in the relationship but it does seem to be settling.

They've ripped the c**t enough in fairness. First offloaded Gallagher on to us, then landed us with a bloke they deemed too shit to manage them and to top it off we took Gurr off their hands.
