Aye he'll be tempted to try Taylor with McKenna.


Assuming McKenna is still there next season...

Horrendous signing. We deserve bottom six.

I'll add to the posts suggesting I can't see him having come in as a backup.

Viewed as being ahead of Devlin or McKenna is off or possibly even both

Very unimaginative signing. Would much rather had Halkett, Shaughnessy or Hoban

As has been suggested we tried to sign shocknessy who priced himself out of a move, Halkett wanted to stay in central belt and Hoban is permanently injured.

Hoban would be an investment/gamble.

Taylor is a safe signing.

McInnes cant be blamed for safe signings though given how badly he has recruitment in the last two years

Reckon an injured Hoban would still be a better option. He might manage to bleed on an opponent and distract them or something.

An injured hobbit would be a better option.

If he's signed to replace Reynolds in the squad and McKenna is staying then I'm ok with him coming back. He knows the club and the league and isn't made of glass like the talented Hoban. But he should not be first pick. But as a back up option he's better than Reynolds and far more reliable physically than Hoban.

If we were in the market for a big useless cunt we should of signed a big useless cunt we'd never heard of.

 

Its almost as if the club are miles out of touch with the support.

Like most folk I’m not exactly thrilled at him coming back but agree that he’s a decent backup to have and with knowing the game up here he wouldn’t struggle to adapt when called upon

Trying to take the positives, we know what he’s about and he should be good enough for Lithuanian posties. And unlike Hoban we’ve got him in early for that job.

If by two year deal what Derek really meant was get us to August, still in Europe till we work out what Villa are going to offer on the last day for Scotty and then we’ll see then I’m as on board as so I can be.

But Taylor and Consi LB in a McKenna-less permanent back 4 is the stuff of absolute nightmares.

Quite happy with Ash Taylor coming back to Aberdeen. He was part of a sometimes excellent Aberdeen side of 2016-17, and is safe and reliable providing he sticks to the basics and keeps away from trying to emulate Baresi or Beckenbauer. Welcome back loon.

Would have preferred Sam Roscoe to get his chance but Ash is a solid enough player, rather have him in than Considine.

well he is back. Not delighted but my best hope is that he is about the same as he left as a player. But i have my doubts he is a lower Guffy 4th division player now..and we can surmise he has went backwards..as Maynard was pumping in goals against defences in that league .

He was basically the reason McLean ended up going as deep as he did.

We are now well stocked on centre backs - I hope it does not end up being at the expense of getting the right quality in other positions. I'd have been ok with signing a more junior player as 4th CB

Aye me too. But it's crucial now that McKenna isn't sold this summer.

Ash gave us goals against sticky teams with his presence in the box, goals and assists. Defensively he's shocking, but does that matter against the team's we struggled against this season which cost us 2nd? The big money needs spend on chance creation. We scored 1 in 3 or 4 chances when we had Rooney, ran out winning by 3 or 4 most games, now we don't create that many chances in a game.

Don’t think he’s a terrible signing tbh, he’s probably grown up a bit having had kids and having to play in a tough league (obviously debatable, but a physical league). So if he’s able to cut out the rush of blood and can play simply he’s going to do well

Lazy. Lazy. Lazy.

Probably alright as a squad player... but surely with a bit of effort we could have sourced someone better? Can we not be arsed? Should we now be preparing ourselves for the return of big Rogan?
