Most technically gifted player we've had since Jess. 

He was streets ahead of everyone else, even in what was a very good team. He probably was a bit too greedy and had an arrogance about him which maybe wouldn't have gone down too well with everyone in the dressing room - but we should have used him more often. I just remember being amazed at how the ball seemed glued to his feet, and that he was always wanting it even in tight situations - so different from the majority of players we see nowadays. 

Totally agree with you Maddison was technically brilliant but when he left I think second half of that season when christie signed I think he was actually a better player for us.

I think the time at Aberdeen benefitted Maddison.

He’d have gone back to Norwich and been told by the coaches there that if he could handle the physicality in the game, he was going nowhere.

it will have spurred him on to do more on the ball and stay on his feet more

Probably I think he went back to Norwich hardy played second half of that season but really kicked on season after that got him the move to leister

I always had a theory with Christie that if you’re 5’8 and chucked into Scottish premiership at 18 for a non cheek minnow you’ll know how to stay out of trouble.  That’s why he was more effective for us than Madison.  Madison strangely thought the referees would protect him.  Mug.

edit:  I’ve no idea what height he is, but he was always wee.

Your right think Maddison thought he would get more protection. If he played for the arse cheeks he would of but plsying for Aberdeen he gets done for diving

Madisson wouldnt have lasted half a season if he was breaking through in the late 80s like Eoin Jess!!

Jess would flourish in the non contact sport era. 
 

I don’t think anyone debates how gifted Maddison was. I’m not having it that his vision was too good for his team mates though, we aren’t talking about Bergkamp here. He was just a teenage loan player up in Scotland, i don’t think he was taking it seriously. His attitude wasn’t good enough, but he seemed to learn a lot on a personal level.

He was superb, technically.  Probably the best in the entire league. 

But he was unable to fit into McInnes' system and McInnes wasn't prepared to change to accommodate him. Which made it doomed to failure. 

Christie was able to come in and adapt quickly which made him the more effective player for us in the system we were playing.

Agree. Jess was a far, far more complete player at 19. Maddison showed what he could do in flashes.

This. Largely down to the fact that Jess was a first team regular in a competitive league and had a full season and two winners medals to his name at 19.

Edit to add, Jess even beats Maddison in goals against der Hun. Maddison's free kick was a peach, but Jess' take on the halfway line before beating the entire Hun defence and sticking it in the top corner at the Bastard Garden is one of my favourite AFC goals of all time. Plus Maddison's wasn't really against Rangers.

Out classing the much raved about Geordie minker also. 
Jess was up against far far better Rangers players than Maddison was with Sevco. 
Same rgds the other arse cheek sides on then & now. 
 

In a far far more physical/less protected era also.

Nothing to do with goals against rangers. At 19 Jess was man of the match in a cup winning final against a really good rangers team. Maddison was anonymous in a cup final against a good Celtic team.

So I’d say Jess was better

Anyone who claims "footballers are role models" is an idiot. 

Footballers are like anyone else. If you're a shit parent and need to let footballers be role models to your kids, that's your issue. Footballers are there to play football, their hobbies are their own business.

Unfortunately raping isn't what one would call a hobby

Good.  I liked Milsom.

Re hobbies fuck sakes you cynics.  Next you’ll be telling me you didn’t believe the mother thinking her lass was a cleaner for Epstein.
