Understandable assumptions to make as the arse cheeks always think that if they want any of our decent players they will get them. Especially in cases where players are coming to end of contract situations where they can sign on pre’s & get them for minimal fees. They also have media on their side to assist them in this.

Different story for players such as McKenna that had decent length contracts & they would have to pay going (full)  rate.

 

I think either of the arse cheeks would show interest in Hedges on a pre (then minimal fee) much like they did with Wright.

Hedges being on fringes of Wales’s squad (when fit) is a no lose profit making signing for small fee for them. As they can inflate his value then through their usual BS media leaks once he’s had a couple of decent games for them

Do you seriously believe that any pish the Scottish papers even get seen by the English clubs, let alone influence the fees they are prepared to pay?

I don’t really get it with Hedges. He’s been here over 2 years now but has only really had a 6 month run of form. 
 

I reckon he’ll run his contract down but not get as much interest as he’s hoping for. He’ll end up at a top end league 1 team

Completely agree.  I'd have taken 500k for him, given that he's away in the summer.

Has he officially said he won't be staying? 

Although the 'keeping options open' movie usually only ends one way

He'd be mental to say anything until he's signed with a new club.

Unfortunately that ship has sailed

Doubtless we will get derisory offers of around £100k in January for him but I hope we tell Hedges he's being held to his contract ends. We might end up with an unhappy player on our books but if he wants to land himself a club back south next summer he'll have to keep on performing to a decent level, otherwise the clubs interested might be Bradford rather than Blackburn or Mansfield rather than Middlesbrough

Below is the prize money given to premier league clubs (taken from the SPFL website 2019/20 season)

1st - 13.40% - £3,350,000 
2nd - 9.60% - £2,400,000 
3rd - 8.25% - £2,062,500 
4th - 7.25% - £1,812,500 
5th - 6.75% - £1,687,500 
6th - 6.25% - £1,562,500 
7th - 5.75% - £1,437,500 
8th - 5.50% - £1,375,000 
9th - 5.25% - £1,312,500 
10th -5.00% - £1,250,000 
11th - 4.75% - £1,187,500 
12th - 4.50% - £1,125,000 

Hedges if he stays fit, realistically could well be the difference between finishing 3rd and 6th.

That's circa £500k in prize money alone, add in the differences in attendances with a team challenging at the top instead mid table, selling Hedges for any 6 figure sum would not have made sense.

We won’t be anywhere  near 6th even if hedges misses rest of season. We may not be fighting for title like people think we should be but I I’d be shocked if we finished worse than 4th. We were absolutely terrible for half the season last season and still finished 4th. We have more than enough to win 40% of our games.

Ideally we would have sold him for a decent sum if he doesn't want to stay. 

But since we had no one in the squad to replace him and the bid came late in the window making it difficult to find a replacement I think the club made the right decision. 

No need to cut your nose off to spite your face.  We're talking about a few hundred grand, not a few million. 

Hopefully the succession planning is better in future.

Disappointed if he doesn't sign on he is decent player

However if he goes he can be replaced 

But there's still time to convince him by  actually playing the guy from the start of each game

Cameo  appearances and then I sure he will decide to move on

I’m not sure he’s as good as we think. He hit a purple patch alongside Wright but has never been same player since. I think he can be replaced.

He can definitely be replaced. 

But not by anyone currently in the squad. 

Unless there's a young player coming through?

Our creative chairman and manager  didn’t this window.    Griffiths will soon be banging them in for Dundee, and  against the dons as well.

To be fair, he'll score quite a few for the Dees.

I simply meant that the media are used to create the unrest with the players. Then the fans get on players back, then players fk off. Are you even attempting to deny the various media links to our players usually done in week/s leading up to when the play us?

Looks like Aberdeen need to find someone who will score quite a few for them after today.

The longer Hedges is injured, the better a player he becomes.

And the more players we sign the more important he seems to become. 

What's the deal with that?

Regrettably we’ve also made the anterior mistake of taking Watkins back, clearly the missing cog, right up to the moment he re-signed.
