6 months? Try 3 years.

True, was good when he first started but injuries as per taken its toll on him.

Just bonkers we gave him a short term deal to prove his fitness and he's not played for us and only reutrned to training a few weeks ago didnt he?

I thought  kennedy’s contract is up next summer? As with McGeough, Hayes, McGinn, Considine and Hedges.

Havent heard a cheap regarding Devlin for weeks now, assume he’s had another setback?

I think Kennedy strained his back modelling the AFC Xmas jumper.

Devlin was a good signing at the time that hasn't worked out due to injuries.  I feel for the lad. 

Kennedy was a poor signing from the outset and yet another level down from the wingers we'd had previously.

Devlin was always a risk

Remember he had fucked his cruciate when we signed him (and we paid Hamilton a fee to bring him in early so we could oversee his rehab). 

I hope we avoid ever taking such risks again

He must have other issues outwith the physical

The fact journos have clearly been told not to ask about him suggests that

This. 

McInnes stock in trade was bringing in injury stricken players.

Mikey Devlin is going to surprise you lot by being fit enough to sign a new contract until the summer. Glass likes his attitude and desire to push himself to get fit after such a horrific injury.

When you say "fit enough to sign a new contract" I take it you mean fit enough to lift the pen and sign on the dotted line, rather than fit enough to actually play a game of football?

We basically gave him a 6 month contract in the summer and have got nothing at all out of him - I'd have had him on redtv every week to save paying whoever else we've had on, and I'd have had him cleaning the toilets and serving the pies as well.

Na. He's from Motherwell/Hamilton so likely not wash his hands.

🤣

Yes, I meant lifting a pen to sign a new deal. As long as someone can wheel him into the cupboard as close to the contract paper as possible I am sure he could stretch over (gently) and sign on the dotted line.

We've had some right bad luck with players and injury, or rather stupid decision making by the management signing up the cripples in the first place!

Certain players are unlucky, Considine for example, but then you've got McInnes signing guys like May and Hoban, both had long term injuries, and expecting anything less than 80% of their time on the injury table. 

Did Kennedy have injury problems prior to signing for us? Wouldn't be surprised.

Unfortunately that's our market... prospects, promising lower league players, home grown, and injury gambles. 

Sometimes the gamble won't pay off and we'll be stuck with a cripple for most of his career... and then give him an extension.

At AGM today saying he's most likely out for another 6-7 weeks to recover from injury, surely cant be given a new deal?

At the very best we should offer him the facilities to get fit when he's recovered. Shouldn't be paying him a penny after his January contract ends.

Unless we have Jesus as a physio I suggest we stay away from cripples from now on.

Embarrassing. The fuck is even wrong with him this time? 

He needs to just retire. He’ll never get himself fit enough to play at a decent level again.

Well, we've started recruiting Latinos, so it's possible we do.

It could be the reason Mikey Devlin is getting fit again.

The guy has a permanent sicknote

But enough is enough we should neve even contemplate giving him a new contract

Do the decent thing Delvin, just move on

Best case scenario, a pay per play deal.

There's no such thing it's it's true sense

We'd have to pay him at least the minimum wage as his base salary and structure pay per play on top of that

Best case scenario.........Glass grows a pair and says "cheerio ma dearie" to him in January

Actually feel sorry for him.

The constant injuries, must affect him in different ways,surely depression when he can't just get on with what he likes to do and that is play footie.

Agree like that we can't give him another contract, maybe his luck will change at another club.
