We have heard that said about many a player to emerge from pittodrie dressing room.
Who are the ones you thought could be described as the above.

Josh magennis. Despite being utilised as a battering ram. I thought there was a decent player in there.

Andy Gibson. Remember him striker signed from stir!ing Albion absolutely prolific in the reserves suggesting he had the strikers instinct . just never got an opportunity in the first team.

Ian Cameron. The ton cunt would've injured himself opening a bottle of coke. Great player at st mirren but never did it for us.

Paul Bernard?  Not sure about Josh, thought he was shite personally.  The obvious are ones McInnes has tried like Goodwillie, now Storey etc.  All players with ability but for whatever reason don't consistently perform.

I don't get this 'there was a player in there' malarky. They were either good at football, or they weren't.

Nigel Pepper?

 

Well he had two legs and wore a kit, so there must have been a player in there..... somewhere.

Disagree to some extent. Some make up for lack of talent with shere endeavour. Consi for instance or Boyd spring to mind. Lego eater at a higher level. Others are clearly talented, have never really ever had to work at it so not surprisingly their attitude sucks.

Stockley, what a player, loved by real Dons fans, hated by expats who never go to Aberdeen games and use the Daily Record as their point of reference for Scottish football.

Goodwillie opitimized this. Pawlett is kind of another one. Flashes of brilliance but was mostly kind of shit.

Not hated, accurately judged by expats who see more of the Dons than baldy little trolls who inhabit the inbred backwoods of darkest Scotland and refer to substandard carthorses as 'the main man', was what you were reaching for there, little fella. 

 

We knew what you meant, though...  :checkit:

Thought he was a good player for us. I remember one of his best games was an away win in Falkirk. As you say one of the victims of Tango's tombola and

Harsh reality was both Magennis and Storey weren't good enough.

 

Agree with the shouts for Goodwillie, Touzani, Pawlett, McArdle, and Ricky Gillies.

 

I'd add Belabed, Stevie Crawford, Lovell, Mark Kerr (was good in his first season), Ben Thornley, Steven Maclean, Nick Blackman and Fabian Caballero.

 

I'm tempted to say Paul Hartley, YOANN FOLLY,  Rob Milsom, Iaasc Osbourne, and Alan Maybury could be added too.
