    If we sign a left back in this window I’ll be staggered.
    Can't believe we are going into another season where Consi is our only real left back option - I'm not counting Shinnie as a LB especially as we have next to nothing in Centre Midfield at the moment.

    Consi gives it his all, but against Celtic and probably Sevco this season, as well as in Europe we need someone who can defend in 1 on 1's....Aaron Lennon in a couple of weeks against Consi could be scary.

    Don’t disagree, but it’ll happen

    We’ve been able to sign players since January on pre contracts. McInnes said himself he works two windows in advance so what the f’ucks he been doing?

    To only have 3 in at this stage with Europe only two weeks away is not good enough. After all, the club always tells us how allegedly important Europe is to them, and we all know for definite what a financial game changer it could be for the club yet we’re throwing it away for another year - EPL opposition or not.

    Any signings we make now have missed a big chunk of pre season and time to integrate into the squad. Good excuse for McInnes though if we have a poor start.

    The current situation is a joke. Having to cancel friendlies we need to be playing for sharpness due to injuries to a paper thin squad is a joke. Frankly, that’s the sort of tin pot Mickey Mouse s’hite I’d associate with Sevco, not a proper football club.

    Even looking at s’hite like Nowak is a joke.

    DNA? 😂😂😂

    My pants are entirely dry, but are singularly unimpressed by the whole thing so far.

    Surprised that we have never gone back and tried to sign some of the Eastern Block players that we have played against in the Europa Cup in recent years. We are told that we forged good relationships at board level with these types of clubs
    Players from Croatia, Bosnia, etc tend to be technically very sound and hard as nails.
    Don't expect to see their star players, but some of there younger or fringe players are lightly to be far better than some of the dross we sometimes peruse from the Englandshire lower leagues.
    When I see the likes of Nicky Mainard I do worry, hardy played a first team game ( not his fault entirely ) and basically never looked like scoring when he did play
    How about it Del and recruitment team, there is some gems to be found at decent prices

    Ive seen enough fitba abroad to know there are some excellent players out there. I would have signed 4 players from Ronnie the ass fisters Valerenga. I remember sitting there thinking we should tap into Norway. Their left back was ace. Turned out he was away to sign for Djurgardens. Surely we are a better gig than Djurgardens

    You wouldn't have seen much of him then. He got 8 starts in a whole league campaign at a diddy French team, The Weegie press built Dalcio and Musonda up to be world beaters and this guy will likely be no different.

    I would have been diasppointed had we signed him although i'm almost at the stage where I'll accept anyone.

    Totally agree with all of this.
    The lack of transfer activity is very worrying due to the start of the season that we are about to have. If we dont pull our fingers out, we could be in a very bad way by October!

    Pants are pished all over here, just waiting for Ali 1903 to arrive and tell us all everything is great........

    The club will be doing everything they can to get the right players in the door. I doubt they're all sitting around with their thumbs up their arse

    Signings will be announced when there is something to announce

    Folk need to calm down

    What's your thoughts on the club taking in a trialist who couldn't get a game for a sh1te Hearts team?
    Doesn't that suggest to you that we've completely ran out of ideas?

    Yes, I'm sure they are working on deals behind the scenes, but could do with one or two more in by now, even if it was the backup players as the squad is quite thin. I think it's made even worse by the fact Gleeson and Forrester have both picked up injuries already. Also made worse by the fact Rangers and Hibs have brought in some decent quality.

    I expected us to announce a couple of players this week, but looks like that's not happening.

    Not really, could mean a lot of things. Just because he is on trial doesn't mean we sign him.

    Not saying we should sign him, but plenty of players struggle and one club and look world beaters at another. No harm in seeing how he does

    I'm hoping that's a favour to an agent we're working with to try and secure someone else of better quality... that's what I keep telling myself anyway...

    I'm hoping he's a fall back whilst we are negotiating with someone better....but I have my doubts

    There are not that many positions in the starting X1 that we can (realistically) strengthen.

    Left back is one - but we won't sadly - another year of AC plodding up and down the line, getting done for pace
    Winger - think we can arguably strengthen there - definitely need another body though.
    Striker - think we can do better there too and have obviously tried to do something about it.

    My best guess is two defenders, a winger and a striker - how many will be seen as first X1 players remains open for debate.

    It's never gone away.
    He's done little or nothing for this club in his tenure.

    The very fact he said "Scottish football needs a strong Rangers" was the tin lid for me.
    No Aberdeen chairman, with any hint of sensing the mood of the Dons support, should EVER utter those words.

    Totally agree, the guy is a disgrace and the worst thing ever to happen to AFC, wish he would just call it a day. He should have been chased years ago.
