I know, and AOC is a defender. That was a really weird debate.

Panda needs to learn the act of knowing when you are wrong and move on.

 

Saw Smith last year for St Mirren and he was decent without being earth shattering but he's played a lot more games since then and seems to be getting a plaudits in the championship.

 

I agree he's not really a CM but I seem to recall Aberdeen trying him there once or twice when he was still with us - I suppose the question is who would be better in the deep CM role Smith (really a 10 or right winger) or O'Connor (really a CB).

 

Its actually not as daft as some people are making out for Panda to suggest Smith might have been better in that position than O'Connor or Ball have been at times for us.

 

Bottom line though - its all purely academic now anyway.

I think the real point is that Smith did play centre midfield for us a few times. A lot better than Nwakali did too.

Stockley scored 6 goals in 39 games for us. He was utter shite at our level.


Full games ? I think a striker needs at least 80 mins on the pitch to evaluate his true worth. 10 mins at the end he is still casing the defenders and the game is over.

Cammy Smith has been replaced by James Maddison and Ryan Christie since he left (on loan).  He was behind Kenny McLean when he was here, though we have moved Kenny McLean deeper since.  I'd say all three were better players than him, even if the most recent two have been short term loan deals.  

 

I don't think Cammy Smith ever showed enough for us to be playing every week, and that is what he wanted to do.  Unfortunately, he was a decent enough squad player that McInnes didn't want to stick him out on loan, but he didn't have enough about him to displace those ahead of him.  When he did eventually go out on loan (after pushing for it), he fell out of favour at United and didn't show a great deal at St Mirren at first. It was in everyone's interest that he moved on at the time that he did, I don't think there was any real clamour for us to extend Smith's contract at the end of last season, especially once we sealed another season of Ryan Christie.

They are completely different types of player

And he is NOT better than Nwakali anyway

 

 

He's miles better than that matchstick armed clown

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!!

Properly still living off everything she claimed for free last time. No doubt standing outside the Hosptial looking for the next boy away kick the bucket for her next world tour
