    Kari Arnason

    Surprise return maybe?

    Fars the flag at? May need dusted down

    Hopefully re-sign Robert(o) Bisconti as well.

    I'd be 100% in favour of this.

    Great player.

    Probably not a bad bit of business if we could get him for nothing. Great experience, solid, consistent performer, and can play at the back or in midfield, and already knows the club and the city. Would be a short term fix for a season, but probably a fairly low risk signing in a position we require cover.

    I'd need some convincing. No doubting that at his best he was a class or two above the SPL norm. He started off well for us but was going through the motions in the second half of the season once it became obvious he was past his injury issues and we were not going to be able to match his wage requirements for staying here beyond the end of the season. I don't like players who think they can pick and choose when to give 100%. Besides I thought he looked somewhat past his peak even in 2012. How much is left in the tank at 34? Looks like a bit of a stereotypical one-last-wage merchant to me.

    he looked ok in the Euros. However, I honestly think this has all been made up.

    He isn’t really having a pop at McInnes he is talking about the style of British football.

    I read that interview the other week,the bbc have missed out the part he goes on about how Aberdeen will always be special to him as his son was born here and how he will miss the people and the city.

    It’s a shame it didn’t work out for him,personally I still think he was a better option than O’Connor if he got a decent run in the team alongside McKenna but best of luck to him at the World Cup.

    I don't know...
    "The teams I've played for, it's been too hectic. It's just launching the ball forward as far as you can and trying to head the ball as far as you can.
    ...
    "I enjoyed my time with Aberdeen, but I didn't really enjoy the style of football."


    Perhaps not blatantly singling out McInnes, it does sound like we're included and there is only one person telling the team to play in the style they do.

    Again that’s only half of what he said,

    “We'll see what happens in the World Cup. I'm open to anything, apart from British football. I don't think I've got another season in me there."

    “It's just the way football is played; they need to get with the times," he said. "They need to pass more and try to keep the ball.”

    To be honest I wouldn’t hold it against him if he had a go at McInnes because he was made the scapegoat for the semi final when others were just as culpable,yes he made mistakes and got dropped when he did yet others also made mistakes yet for some reason didn’t get dropped.

    Anyway it doesn’t matter now he’s gone,like I said before good luck to him in the World Cup.

    Perhaps he would be a good shout to take over from McInnes, in the not to distant future.

    That is far too objective for some on here, transparently they cherry pick from a long/honest interview to suit their own agenda......of which, should be our club doing well, sadly they predict losses/failures and in most cases thankfully they are wrong.....

    You are correct. However, the quotes I reproduced relate directly to his views on his recent time at Aberdeen in particular.

    Hey, it's open to interpretation and maybe I read too much into it.

    But you know what? Those "happy clappers" are just as happy to shoot down anyone else's thoughts as quick as they surmise that others do to them.

    Ach....what do I know.........I'll just mind my own business......no point having a viewpoint is there, other people have the high ground....I'll surrender to them gallantly and retreat to the bar.

    WTF

    For the resident troll, that is an improvement in restraint regarding response, as you take note as per, you will know Iím away down to the harbour/riviera for a well earned pint/have banter and discuss where the Hive went wrong last night.....bookies can wait till they open tomorrow and golf will be fine tomorrow.......hopefully!

    Take care

    I think it's a dig because (from what I've heard) the two of them didn't actually like each other.

    What in the hell are you talking about?

    You think he is having a go at McInnes in the interview and I don’t think he is,it’s a forum and it’s all about opinion,technically no one is wrong it would be more boring on here if we all agreed on everything.

    For the record I agree with aldo I don’t think Arnason and McInnes liked each other but imo I don’t think he was having a go at him in the interview he was just talking about British football in general.

    But I might be wrong, I have been many times before.

    Sorry, rico94, I quoted you but my ramble wasn't actually directed at you.
    Absolutely. We are all entitled to our opinions.
