    People saying their is plenty of time? There is just over 2 weeks till a huge European game, which is a Battle of Britain. Europe is something the club fought for all last season, and now we've achieved it, we are just throwing in the towel it seems?

    I'm disgusted by this summer. The club is in it's best financial situation in years, yet we spend 200k-400k (raised by fans no less) and that's it? Farcical.
    Tottaly agree, milne has dreamed up this dna p•sh so as to get out of putting his own money up for players! Unscrupulous prick only interested in making money with selling off pittodrie

If there isn't I'm going on Dragons Den...
    Scouts are 99% of the time self employed. I know one in particular who was up until recently scouting for Scotland and it doesn't cost much.

    I really doubt that we have been watching Gleeson, Forrester or Marquis over multiple games if at all.

    No the stents put an end to the 5s😠 The nippy wee winger had developed into a hacking *******e at the back in any case which didn't really suit - although I was playing against huns and tims which gave some solace

    Aye , getting too auld now.

    I might even stop wearing the strip under my clothes to games, just in case.

    I think you give Stewart Milne too much credit for having the brains to think up the AberDNA scheme.
    I’d say it might be more the doing of Dave Cormack.

    I'm donating DNA money for the same reason I bought shares - to help the club! I m not interested in loyalty points and as for considering that I know better than AFC about what player to sign? We fans only have our uninformed view of trialsts and don't see them in training and don't know how they would fit into the team?
    Player X was Shyte for club Y doesn't mean they would be for us. Ask the tims about Johnny Hewitt or the Oldham fans about Adam Rooney.
    Not being negative but realistic (a happy clapper’s favourite word).
    When I first followed the Dons we were a fantastic team who we were proud of as fans and feared no one.
    Nowadays we have little ambition, sh!t ourselves in pressure matches and have a conman as the head hauncho running the club.
    Let’s see what really happens with the DNA money that supposedly will be used on top of our increased transfer budget and then I will get back with an apology for doubting our club chairman and his intentions.
    In the meantime I have the right as anyone else to give an opinion (whether liked or not) on anything that happens during this window.
    I admit I am not feeling positive about our recruitment currently but would love to be proved wrong during the season.
    I am admittedly critical of players we are dealing with this summer but unfortunately if we are going to have absolute dross that hardly got any minutes for Hearts and in the last six months did the square root of f@ck all then my criticism is warranted.

    It's the work of Rob Wicks.

    That's what he was brought to the club to do.

    Cheers.

    He’s certainly getting on the wicks of plenty fans.

    I certainly didn’t think Milne would have the savvy to think it up.

    The whole club isn’t.
    It’s voluntary.
    I’d say the more that invest in the club, the better.

    No i haven't, ive had like 4 calls from them,
    I don't think its a fair scheme and im against the stadium move not fervently but i believe it'll impact us greatly on pitch.

    Granted and i dont have a problem with it, but we were believed to think it would be topped up by milne etc when it looks like it won't.

    Plus just dont think its value for money,
    I pay enough at present re attending games red tv club shop etc

    Did you forget to opt out of marketing calls when the GDPR e-mail deluge was taking place a couple of months ago?

    I've had no calls from them about this - and I did previously receive marketing calls from them.

    Where was it ever said Milne would top it up?

    My understanding is the DNA money would be added to the “football budget”.

    Added yes that's what i meant but with only 2 more apparently coming in and maybe a loan it doesn't look like milne has needed to add anything to it.

    I also have not given them anything (DNA). No calls trying to convince me though
    If the product on the pitch is improved I wouldn’t mind someone trying to convince me to sign up, but when we have a chairman of vast wealth and other board members (directors) of vast wealth and they put nothing of any note into the club to improve the team then I am not going to be convinced ever.
