They're going to go with a young squad straight away by the looks of it.  Supplemented by a few existing older guys

Which is what we should have done rather than overloading with older players from the off. 

We were already on the back foot in the summer, due to McInnes’ latter signings and the onerous contracts they were on, but we exacerbated matters by signing 6 new players over 30, some no doubt on stupid wages.

A task that was already  difficult enough was made a whole lot worse, and will take more than a few windows to fix.

Which is why it shouldn’t be Stephen Glass that’s left to fix it. 
Fuck knows what state we’ll be in if he’s given the next two transfer windows

I guess the only "benefit" if you can call it one is that most of the over 30's signed were only on two year deals.

Hopefuly get guys like Ojo, Hayes, McGinn, Kennedy and Devlin off the wage bill by the summer (if not earlier) will allow for some more wiggle room in the wage budget. 

Need our head of recruitment to show his worth

Clyde 1 "debating" (actively encouraging would be a better description) sevco possibly signing John Souttar and Celtic possibly signing Martin Boyle.

Naturally the natives on both sides are all for them 

Here's hoping Souttar signs a pre-contract with an English side in the next few days (even better if he signs a new deal with Hearts) and Hibs say that Boyle isn't for sale at any price.

I wouldn’t mind Boyle going to the Tims.

It weakens Hibs significantly but doesn’t strengthen the Tims.

If they are both Aberdeen fans I’m not sure how either could sign for either of them

We need to sell or do player swaps to get new faces in. Blame Davie Cormack

Fair.

Crying shame we missed out on him and his brother as well as guys like Armstong/Gauld.

Hopefully see better youth prospects coming through moving forward

Cormack has plenty cash. He could easily finance the Dons for a good few years and do it with the aim to win the league if he wanted.

Yes. But i would do it to win the league and recoup some by the champions league. It would show ambition plus make it extremely difficult for Celtic and Rangers.

He’d get his money back when we get Champions league. No risk at all. 😝

I wouldn’t be in it to make money though. It would just be for a bit of fun and to beat the two from Glasgow. In all honesty, if I was in the position that Davie Cormack has I reckon i would easily accomplish it. It might cost a few quid but the joy of being the best team in the country will be well worth it.

Nadir Ciftci to St Johnstone reeks of desperation. He was good at Dundee Utd, but that was a long time back and he’s done nothing of note since. St. J have a real shot at relegation. 

I'll go 3rd game for his first red card. 

My guess is he'll do next to nothing, finish the season with three goals, two of them against us.

Only got two goals: tick

Well over 6ft?: x

returning from long term injury?: x

playing lower lower league football?: x

 

Not sure he's what McInnes will be looking for.

Mental injury counts as long term injury so I guess it’s 50/50 then
