I was for signing him as a squad player, as he would give us fairly decent options.
Certainly far better that Tansey but not saying much that.

McInnes has a past history of heading back in for past targets.  Don't think it'd surprise many if he ends up here next season... regardless of whether or not he attended the Partick game!

Better option than Watt I'd think.

But do we seriously not have any scouts identifying players not already known to the club (and everyone else)

That's just it, other clubs doe seem to be able to bring in decent new players to the SPFL.

Our scouts bring in complete shite mostly unless it's a player who is known to us because of playing up here before.

Maybe that's just a wrong perception on my part but you get the feeling our scouting is way behind teams other teams.

Our scouting is way behind. All Russ Richardson does is watch League One reserve games. Then McInnes signs said pish and tells us he "has to listen to his scouts". Our scouting operation is clearly inferior.

This with F*cking bells on. The club should have a complete overhaul of the scouting network ( if they have such a thing ). The boy Richardson seems to be completely unaccountable for the dross he comes up with

Dross like Rooney, Lewis, Logan? They've all come up from English lower leagues and been a success.

 

Taylor and Stockley were good signings too but someone will be a long in a minute to say they were shite.

Rooney and Lewis were hardly gems plucked from obscurity.

Rooney had a track record in Scotland previously.
Joe Lewis had been in an England squad and was always thought of reasonably highly.

Logan isn't good.

Taylor was passable at best. Really clutching at straws.

Stockley is an abomination.

You've kinda proven the point being made.

Rooney isn't and unknown/new to the SPFL. So not relevant in this discussion.

Lewis is a very well known keeper and would have been known to every manager in the UK frankly. Even I knew of him and I pay no attention to English football whatsoever. So also not fresh face we have scouted.

Logan is a good example of one we did "unearth" in the sense he hasn't played in SPFL before but how long ago now did we bring him in? Where are the other examples.

Taylor was limited, ok I suppose.
Stockley probably even more limited.

So if those are your best examples of the club scouting fresh talent, I think we'll rest our case right there because these examples show exactly how poor we are at this aspect.

Motherwell and Hibs are out performing us in scouting fresh talent.

I was thinking that too. If any Aberdeen fan doesn't think Logan has been a good signing they are a fucking idiot.

I wasn't saying others aren't better, nor that we couldn't improve. I was refuting the point that Richardson has brought in dross from league one reserves when we've actually done pretty well signing players from down south.

 

Just because you'd heard of Lewis doesn't mean he isn't a success of our scouting network down there. He'd done nothing since he was a youngster and wasn't on anyone's radar. Most on here thought Alexander was going to be no.1 last year.

 

I was just naming names that came to mind immediately, could add in Hector, Ward and Maddison who were extremely good signings coming from our network down south. Even guys like Church came in and did a job for us. I'm convinced Chidi will look like a very good signing by the end of the season.

 

Given we're either signing young unproven players or guys who are available for free, that's a decent return.

Sorry but some of your examples of Russ doing a job were likely signed before he started.

Others absolutely were known.

If you think Derek didn't already know who Lewis was before he signed I think youre losing the plot.

The ones identified by the scouting team are much more likely to be the lower league and reserve types and many of our attempts at bringing in those players have been awful.

So it's an entirely fair criticism I think.

We're talking past each other here, you're arguing against points I've not even made.

The moment I take credence from anything you have to say DelMonte is never. Genuine screamer.

Logan isn't good as of this seasons evidence. I didn't say he hasn't been a useful player over the course.
