    Signing a contract extension will no doubt involve a signing on fee.

    So where does it say he signed so we could cash in. He signed so we could cash in

    Jog on with your pedantic pish.
    Your just being facetious.

    If you can't see that having a player with 2 years left on his contract is a better negotiating position than a player going into his last year, then that's your issue.

    I thought he signed the contract so he could get a minimum fee release clause put into it.

    We should have put the minimum fee in as £3 million.

    Then he could have said no to the contract and lost him for free. He was worth more than 1.3. But that was his get out clause. Him and his agent screwed us and got him out of the club with that deal which funnily enough came right after Cardiff were told to do one. C@nt

    We could have had him for another year and unhappy yhen lost him for free. So the 1.3 million came in handy. But he is a wee c@nt none the less and to hear he got clapped on the park in the first home hiding fae the pigs made my blood curdle

    Wouldn’t he have got a cut of the £1.3 as technically he didn’t ask for the transfer plus h would hwv got a signing on bonus from Celtic. Why would he care about helping us it’s not like he came through the youth system

    I'm not sure that's what you mean but I guess you are annoyed you made up a "fact" again that was found to be pish. I could hear from here the frantic googling of you trying to find some sort of evidence that your "fact" was indeed a fact.

    Not sure what you mean by this either. What does any of that have to do with the urban myth that Jonny Hayes signed a better deal at Aberdeen which meant that in 6 months time he would generate more money for the club?

    That’s what I was thinking as well,even if he didn’t sign the deal I’m sure we would have got at least £1 million for him with a year left on his old contract.

    Yeah, signing an extension to a contract does not add value to a players value.
    McKenna signing till 2023 does not put us in a stronger position should any offers come in.
    why did we extend from 2021 to 2023 only 5 months after he previously extended?
    Inversely, we don't lose value as players contracts run down.

    If thats what you want to believe, so be it.

    So an extra £300,000 by your reckoning compared to not extending.

    To answer your obvious point;

    1) McKenna gets more money

    It’s not that much more is it.

    Do you work for the club?I don’t think I have ever seen you put a negative post about the club,that’s some going being a Dons fan.

    Agree.
    Not that great but better than Crawford.

    Another “classic” McInnes type signing would be Lewis MacLeod.
    Young player that left SEVCO to go to Brentford.
    He got injured & lost his way - not sure if still injured?

    I reckon we sold Hayes on the cheap. Bad business deal selling one of our best players at time to the team that we are trying to compete with. Hayes has been missed as no one has been able to replicate his ability he provided in the last couple of seasons.

    I thought Gauld was a forward rather than a midfielder? Not sure about Crawford but he may play better with better players as such. Still young and a lot to prove.
    McInnes will have a couple of aces up his sleeve to get the fans back onside for the start of next season.

    I have also heard that the McGeough deal is not necessarily dead,his agent is trying to get us to up our offer by telling the media he has offers down south.

    McGeough was excellent against us in the last match at Easter Road. He would be a decent signing.

    More is more and no I do not work at the club.
    I can be critical,when its warranted.
    Like the 3-0 defeat to SevCo, the tactics was abysmal. DM totally got that wrong.
    But I don't go on and on about it. I move on to the next game.

    I don't wish Hayes any ill and he had a rare quality for us, the type of player that gets you off your feet. Ultimately though, Hayes likes money. Nothing wrong with that. He worked hard with us, deserves it and I can understand why people would want to make up stories to paint him in a better light. The problem is that those stories somehow become "fact" over time.
