Heard last week that we were after a "big name" in defence. This presumably is it.

would be a good signing, better than Taylor, based on Euro 2016 performances.

John Terry. Turned us down cause Mcinnes would shag his wife.

34 year old though, not as if we can rely on him to play every game. IIRC he spat the dummy at being used in defence when he was here did not?

He wouldn't need to play every game though.

 

O'Connor and Reynolds aren't a great CB pairing, but they are good enough to cope well enough with the teams in the bottom 6 of the SPFL. Arnason could be used for the games v the top 6.

 

This rumour was made up on here wasn't it?

I think he's accepted that he's a defender now.  I'd be happy with this signing.

Experienced centre half, good with the ball at his feet with international experience? Damn fucking right we would.

Folk make out that 34 is an age we should be sending folk to retirement homes!

 

John Terry is 36.... Buffon is 39!!

 

There's no doubt in my mind that Arnason (whom I was a massive fan when he was here) has it in him to play an entire season and is light years ahead of the quality of Taylor or Reynolds.

 

Get him signed!

On Brown's side with this one. Rae has been better than Arnason in his time here and it may well lay down a marker for players in future contract negotiations.

You also have to remember that Brown needs to reduce the wage bill, not increase it.

 

Oooooft

Is there anything to suggest the club are actually interested in Arnason apart from fans on here fancying him as a good signing?

I would love for him to come back up here but I wouldn't read too much into it until Scott Burns tweets about it. I heard he is quite a reliable source.

When Cammy announces his booking into a city centre hotel, then and ONLY then, will I believe it's on.

My biggest gripe about Arnason is that he didn't wait until I was back from the US to score a 40 yard, 90th minute winner against Dundee United at Tannadice

I think he's waiting for Scott Burns to say something.  I believe Scott Burns is quite reliable.

Bob Martin on twitter is also a very reliable source. He's able to tell you 2018's newspaper headlines, today.

"according to twitter and AFC chat ITK's.........."

 

Be as well put that in the article as there's nothing about a transfer other than saying "Mcinnes is keen". Thrown in quotes about Ronaldo to fill the rest of the article. Pathetic

Was a good player when he was last here, is a genuine international and has bags of experience.  The crux of it as it always is with players at that age is gambling on them staying fit.  Would definitely be worth considering if he wanted to come back.  

 

Where has he played while down in England, CM or in defence?  We dont really need another central midfielder.
