300k was reported to be the fee for McLean and likely we'll lose him for nowt.

Signed for 3 years so100k per year plus wages.

Not sure that's great business tbh.

If paying a fee for a player we should try and ensure we can punt him for at least what we paid.

 

McInnes said in a RedTV interview we paid 175K for McLean.  The 300K is either made up by the papers or what the potential sell ons add up to.

If we get Christie on loan again I reckon it'll be another January deal if Celtic are comfortably ahead in the title race.

I can't see them selling him because Rodgers rates Christie highly, and a loan move to the team finishing second and who have just pumped you in the Scottish Cup final would be odd.

Agreed.

We need to get McLean's future sorted out this summer. Ideally he would sign an extension with an agreement that he can move on if the club get some decent wedge. AFC has been good for McLean, he should recognize that.

There is a sell on clause on his current contract from St Mirren

If, as the rumours suggest, he's holding out for a move to Rangers, he'll be well aware that they aren't in a position to shell out a decent wedge.

 

Sit on things for the next 6 months, and Kenny can go where he wants!

A glowing tribute from Christie in the E.E praising Aberdeen and how he does not rule out coming back.

 

I am not a fan of loan deals but would make an exception in his case, but would favour money changing hands for his signature on a 3 year contract.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

As I said... If we don't keep him motivated we're going to lose him at some point...

Not much we can do though to really compete with Sunderland is there?  Bit of a basket case but a big club nonetheless who will be looking for promotion back to the EPL.

Reckon MacLean &/or Lewis will sign a new deal on Thursday/Friday this week, to give us a wee boost.

Give him a break he'd have spent all morning trawling the sun and daily record looking for something to get annoyed about.

It's maybe too similar a job to the one he had with Bristol? Although he'd probably have a lot more money to play with?

You get parachute payments in England.

Will come down to whether McInnes fancies a new parachute or not.

The talk of McInnes not being able to take us further is pish. So much room for improvement in Europe.

They're the new Wigan.  They'll go crashing through the leagues.

Better than trawling all my posts and posting absolute crap like you did above.

 

You really need to stop your fixation on what I post on here.
