You’re obviously not wrong because he’s going to miss every game against Celtic, but he will hopefully help to keep out the other 10 teams. You have to wonder if both Gallagher and Bates will still be here come 2nd September.

Think Gallagher will be going , especially if the Stewart rumour comes about

I can see why some are ok with it but it’s really not for me. 

I can’t accept bringing in a (presumably) key player who then can’t play in 3-4 league games and/or cup games against them. 

There's also the possibility of him being recalled in January.

There’s no getting away that it’s not what we wanted, but, and it’s a big but, we were 10th in the league last season because we lost so many mental goals. If he is going to come in and help to stabilise us for a year I’ll take it. Bottom line is if he is Ryan Christie great, if he is Adam Montgomery pish. 

I had a discussion recently on here about this. Montgomery I get being pissed off with as he wasn’t proven at this level or even really highly rated and we are essentially letting him make his rookie mistakes with another team. Christie on the other hand was really already a proven player in this league that Aberdeen would normally struggle to purchase this sort of talent. Scales is somewhere in between.

In general I am against any loan deal without the option to buy. Would rather we developed one our own contracted players than develop a player for another team.

If he does well enough for you guys then Aberdeen will be in a better position to attact a suitable replacement. (back in Europe)

Might also be paying only a portion of his wage or something. 

If he's crap you punt him back.

Plenty of potential positives in a loan here. I also imagine this was all in the works long before the big transfer to Liverpool went through.

The positive is we get a good player. The negatives are he can't play in our toughest fixtures. And if he does well he'll either get straight into their team (see Christie) or thry'll sell him for more than we can afford. 

A loan is easier to get behind if there's an option to buy. Here there's nothing. Our investment in him and giving him game time means f**k all as we likely won't be the ones to benefit.

I think that “the big transfer to Liverpool” has been in the pipeline since before the end of last season.

Hate loan signings especially from a team in our own league that he can't play against ffs.Oh well if we are going down this route again any others you could loan us Celtic.                                                                                       Does sarcasm work in typed form?

Ramirez sighting towards the end of this video so he is back training for now at least.

 

 

 

Definitely away. Can't really reveal my source because it's so ridiculous but everyone at the club knows it.

Two strikers needed then.

Pointless him coming back really if he’s for the off 

He needed to pick up his boots and toiletries.

Yeah, shame it turned so sour for him after starting pretty well. Definitely better for him to go now than being in the huff for a few months first.

3 if he's away.

If Goodwin is planning on a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 I could see him going with 3 main centre forwards and having Harvey as backup. Not that Watkins can be relied on to stay fit for long stretches of a season but don't think they'll sign 3 more with him there.
