From what I've always seen he is limited but Solid. Hard to judge when he is playing in a team that is up against it most weeks.

 

I'm not unhappy with this signing. McInnes says it is very much a signing for next season so someone will be off.

O'Connor, Arni and Ball likely.

Was never overly impressed when I saw him at Hamilton, but he's bound to be better than most of our current CB options.

Not brilliant by any means but reasonable signing, with scope to improve. He's also not a big shite bag and will increase the leadership quotient in the side.

Yeah, must have been keen to sign him going by that report he's actually injured.  Would imagine it'll be him and McKenna in the middle towards the end of the season and into next.  Hopefully build up a decent partnership.

If he and McKenna can forge a decent partnership then we could get 3/4 seasons with the pair before the latter gets a big move away.

Not the answer. Now...if we're saying he's a CB for next season, what about the complete lack of options in Midfield/LB now???

If he gets better from his injury - and lets hope he does given the length of his contract - can we put Kari into the midfield stopper role. He could last there a season (or maybe two) and move Shinnie to left back.

Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple - Bill Shankly.

Devlin and Mckenna next season could be a strong partnership. Decent signing if he can come back ok from his injury.

Not the answer to what? What has signing a defender with a long term vision got to do with your perceived lack of options in midfield?

What would you say if Chidi comes in and plays a blinder tomorrow with Shinnie at LB?

I'd say all of a sudden the complexion of the squad changes.

Another very average squad signing....with an injury as well.  Hope I'm wrong but really don't think he'll cut it away from Accies.

Ed Sheeran killed Devlin's career.

Welcome to the dons min.

 

Ball certainly should go

 

I'd much rather keep Arnie for another year than Considine or Reynolds though.

 

O'Connor i think is more useful as a squad player, i'd actually keep him as emergency cover for a few positions (Consi and Reynolds can't cover the Defensive Mid role) and while he's not brilliant I think he's ok for cover - the real issue is we are so thin in the squad at CM an CB that he has to play almost every week

 

So, ideally sign a CM and Left Back,get Arnie fit and resigned then move Reynolds and Consi outwards

I'd say "look McInnes this is what we've been saying for months you blind bastard"

 

And also "now sign some fucking proper cover so we never end up having to play Shinnie in Mid and Considine at LB again, thanks"

 

In all seriousness, having just enough acceptable cover and no more just isn't good enough and exactly why we get in this problems, so I won't get excited if Chidi helps the issue a little - we need more.

Any chance we might see Reynolds go to Hamilton or Partick who both need CB cover I think?

 

If we sign a left back (imagine that!) we don't really need Reynolds as we have Considine and Ball to cover CB if really needed (I know, I know)

Daniel Harvie should be starting at LB tomorrow IMO.

Fairly sure Reynolds has signed a contract extension and will finish his career at Aberdeen as back up.

He definitely signed an extension.

 

But we have too many backups is my view on it. In Reynolds, O'Connor and Considine we have 3 guys who are mediocre. I'd keep 1 of the 3 but probably Reynolds is least versatile.

Been saying it for weeks.

 

Sometimes we'd just be better letting a young guy settle and take the pain of the odd poor performance rather than playing a player we know is limited and not in good form anyway.

Talking of young players, it really seems like we could use an injection of enthusiam, energy and fearlessness that younger players can bring - Deek never seems to rate the impact of that on the team either, Its always bring in the safe pair of hands even if its some mediocre player who is low in confidence and has been on the end of a doing from Rangers or Celtic half a dozen times.
