Ash Taylor - 1 year extension. 

Certainty.

If this triggers a wish to extend Taylor’s deal out of McInnes’s laziness/inability to source actual decent replacements this could be the worst news we have had all season.

Trying too hard there to get a double dig against McInnes and Taylor in one post

Hopefully. Leigh is nowhere near the standard we require if we want to improve.

Its OK coasting along in third is perfectly acceptable

Good player.  A Stopper.  Distribution not good enough for our new back 3 thing.  Hardly alone in that though.

Except a 6 month period he was a shite player imo.

Even discounting injuries he was often pish

How much do you think we would need to invest to get above "coasting in third" ?

Aye he looked a great signing that first 6 months of his first full season. 

Injury prone being an understatement though. Both before and during his time here.  He was recovering from a serious injury the first 6 months he came here. 

Agreed. He looked an excellent addition to our team, especially on the basis of his league debut against the venom at the start of season 18-19. He was brilliant that day.

Got to wonder though what their are getting fed and advised nutritionally at Pittodrie/Cormack Park as there are an unacceptable amount of long-term injuries at our club, far far more compared with other clubs  Ankle and hamstring injuries are high on the menu yet again. 

We were playing some great stuff, getting the desired results, then the injuries curse strikes again. 

Lack of Vitamin B1 in the players' diets, which could lead to the awful condition of Beri Beri, perhaps? Just a theory, of course

He got called up to the scotland squad a couple of times didnt he? Thats when folk were saying he and McKenna were the next McLeish and Miller.

Will be binned in Jan.

At the point he got caps for Scotland he was actually in honking form for us. I'm not even sure if he was getting a game. 

He was in great form for his first call up... but got that injury in training. it was devastating when he was gonna miss the league cup final! now we dont even notice if the cunts in the squad or nae

The best thing I have seen him do is grab airfield by the scruff of the neck 

Loved that 

Ha ha, that was good to see. That's what we like seeing as Aberdeen supporters; commitment, passion and the will to win in abundance from our players (at the very least).

It was brilliant. Been downhill since though, unfortunately.

He was a good signing on paper, just never worked out. Seems a decent guy, and genuinely seems to understand what a good/bad Aberdeen performance is. 
 

I would still look at Jason Kerr, Liam Gordon and Stuart Findlay. 
 

Now, I don't know their contract situations but I reckon if we'd have to pay a fee it would rule them out.

Not sure about Gordon but fairly sure the other 2 are out of contract in the summer. Both have been mentioned as possible recruits in the past, Findlay being left sided and considering we haven't yet replaced McKenna would seem an obvious choice. However he has lost a bit of form this season and also lost his place in the Scotland squad. Maybe a new challenge is exactly what he needs. 

Kerr I know a bit more about as my son is a St J fanatic. Last season he was honkingly bad and this season they seem to be using him mainly at right back rather than centre back. We might need 0, 1 or 2 right sided centre backs this summer, depending on whether we can get Hoban to extend his contract (hopefully yes) and also if McInnes offers big Gash an extension (hopefully not). I'd suggest if Kerr isnt back in central defence soon, then if he isn't good enough for St J, he isn't good enough for us

Interesting on Kerr, is he still their captain? 
 

If Findlay is OOC he's definitely someone we should try for, like you say. If these guys were in top top form we probs couldn't get them. Rather, we know how good they can be and they can fulfil their potential with us. 
 

Fair play to your loon being a STJ fan. I presume that's because you live down there? Would be easier to support his old mans bigger team.

He is still there captain and is desperate to leave. I work with his father in law and he was saying he regretted signing the contract extension as he did it for the club to get a good fee then no club has met their valuation, believed to be around 500k but he only has 18 months left on his deal so assume the price is dropping.

Findlay has been in & out the Killie team lately, they’ve been playing two donkeys ahead of him.

Broadfoot & Dikamona (fuck knows if that’s spelled correctly!) 

Not sure about Findlay.

Not seen any of Kerr this season but he was dreadful last season by all accounts. 
As a replacement for Taylor he’d be fine, more dependable.
Declan Gallagher is the one SPFL centre half we can realistically target I’d like for the middle of a back 3.

It's a shame. He's only 27.  Should be in his peak years just now. 

@Sooper-hanz

And on this occasion, he probably is Finnish.

I liked him when we signed him and thought he was really good when he first played. 

When we signed him people said it was a risk as he had dodgy knees, they seem to be the only part of his legs that haven’t been injured since we signed him. His ankles seem to have been the worst part with these injuries, has it always been the same one that he injured in Scotland training.

Another of DMs failed signings

As soon as his previous injury  history was revealed we all knew here we go again

A complete  waste of time for both parties although Devin has a decent wage out of the club for no return

The board really  need to clamp down on any dodgy  known previous injury  history players just don't go there

Nice guy but its been  a disappointing  signing one DM should never have been allowed to make

Am I right in saying he signed a pre contract with us before his first big cruciate injury?

No.

He was quite far down his rehab from a serious knee injury when he signed. 
We paid a small fee to get him I think
