Defensive Midfielder from Rotherham signed on loan.

 

His last name is ball so he must be good.

Can't remember a fucking thing about him.  Was he one of many Premier League super stars that fatso McCoist brought in?

Oh fuck me.  It seems he was loaned out to Peterborough last season, immediately fell out with them and had his loan terminated.

 

AFC saying he's primarily a central defender but can play full-back or CDM as well.

So it would seem.  I'll reserve judgement until I see him kick a ball.  Probably around late October.

He played 30 times for the bread man in season 2015/16 including the SC semi-final win over Celtic.

He's definitely better than Callum Morris.

Welcome aboard Dominic. In McInnes we trust.

Will reserve judgement until he pulls on the red shirt but not being good enough for Rotherham isn't the best of signs.

I actually thought he was excellent in that semi final. If he plays to the level he set there then he'll be a good signing. Could be worth giving the benefit of the doubt before writing him off because he played for them for a season.

Naebody hates huns mair than me, but the boy likes his travels and probably wants to put that stench, with its prick bigot fans behind himself as soon as poss. Gie him a chance for fuck sake, we all make mistakes - like Stalin.

 

If he's shite, I'll join in the "ex-hun" rhetoric, but if he does well for the dandies, his days of squalor are over and he won't wake up screaming in the middle of the night from ex-hunnery. As Hannibal Lecter did for Clarisse, maybe we can help silence his Ibrox lambs.

Seems like a panic signing.  Surely there was no obstacle to signing this guy earlier, if we really wanted him?

 

To sign him right on the stroke of the deadline suggests he must have been a back-up, if we couldn't make things happen with our primary target.

Huns are permanently raging.

The boy looks like a hun but I'll give him a chance.

However, just like being assimilated by the Borg, once a hun, always a hun.

Will be difficult for Domhunic to shake that off.

My mate who is a big hun is jealous we've signed him. He has watched the huns week in week out for years and says he would have loved to have him back. As others have mentioned he said Ball was the stand out player the day they beat Celtic in the SC semi-final. The fact he can play right back, centre half and defensive midfield is a bonus as those were positions where we needed cover. He may end up being good enough to be in the starting 11 most weeks. He's been capped at England U20 level so there seems to be some potential there and he's still only 22 so hopefully his best years are ahead of him.

Let's give him a chance. I think getting £100k for Stockley and signing Ball on loan is a decent bit of deadline day transfer business. The squad looks more balanced now. All in all you have to say it's been a great transfer window for us.

I vaguely recall him during his time at The Rangers. I don't know much about him however he seems to be a good player who has lost his way since moving back to England. He sounds like he could be a great signing if McInnes can get the best out of him. I'm looking forward to him being a success!

The usual fucktard comments from the mock outrage bed shiters I see.

Welcome aboard.
Really strong squad been assembled, just need to work out how best to deploy it, then we'll be flying.

Only 22? 

 

The Rotherham fans seem somewhat unimpressed he's been sent out on loan.

 

The huns must have had someone else called Ball playing for them who I'm thinking of?

https://en.m.wikiped...ki/Dominic_Ball

 

Didn't realise he was that young.

 

Played England U20s 2 seasons ago. So 20 when playing for huns.

Went through all Northern Ireland youth groups, U15-U21s.

 

Would think there may be something there, still developing.

Fuck knows. Definitely could do with all the help we can get in defence.

 

Nae gan to judge 'til I've seen him fuck up a few times...   :drool:
