A front 3 of Boyle, Nisbet & this lad is more than decent. 
Assuming neither Boyle or Nisbet leaves, obviously. 

If he’s as good as he’s made out, Hibs can sell him on pretty sharpish for a chunky fee. 

With our knowledge of the American market you’d have thought we’d have shown an interest?

i'm more hopeful than some of you that its AFC. Seems like Ramirez MKII to me.... even looks like him.

however now doing my investigatory work and seeing than alan russell doesn't follow him then he's not coming to AFC.

Yer mate Scott Burns saying Hibs.

Disappointed Hibs have got this lad. Looks a good signing with lots of upside.

I know if you pay a transfer fee to sign somebody outwith a window then you cannot register them until the following window.

My understanding was free agents could be registered at any time but I've never looked into it in any great depth

Only if he became a free agent within the transfer window - so contract would need to be terminated prior to the 31st August or whenever the window closes.

Aye, a more than decent right winger when you do some digging on him, and a position we lack in. (In quality, not numbers). 

Would’ve been a good signing.

According to a few Hibs fans we were never in for him.

Looks like it could be another very profitable signing for Hibs. Daniel McKay and now Mueller.

Ron Gordon is showing Hibs mean business as he's clearly backing Jack Ross.

This just makes Cormack's boasts look even more ridiculous especially given his US connections. And its Hibs that are signing this guy, meanwhile we get  Jack Gurr and 4 years out of date Rameriz. 

Maybe McInnes wasn't the problem behind our signing strategy.

Yup. Especially when you consider the starting points of the relevant squads, Hibs have done much better than us. 

And we allegedly have (or at least had) a bigger budget than them. Why are they beating us to the best talent in Scotland and now the US, a market where we're supposed to have our finger on the pulse more than anybody else? Its fucking criminal.

Hibs know they will be selling at least one of Doig, Porteous ( no laughing at the back) Boyle or Nisbett for serious money so will have cash on the hip to make at least one major signing.

Mackay, Doyle’s-Hayes n Mueller seems excellent business short and long term.

Hibs wernt that far ahead of us last season. In the 4 games we played against them it was 2 wins a peace with aggregate score of 3-3. Even the last game where we lost 1-0 I thought they were pretty poor and we could of got a result.

I for one am not pi5hing my punts that Hibs have signed a winger with a ratio of 1 goal in every 5 games to his name.

I’m more than impressed with what we’ve signed, versus What Hibs have done in the transfer window.

f*ck Hibs, we’ll smash them this season, mark my words.

Wouldn't say I'm pishing my pants over it but it's a very good signing for them, on paper. They valued him at £3,000,000 and he's got a very good goal to game record at a similar level to ours.

 

Compare our wide players; 

 

JET- 30

Mcginn- 34

Hayes-34

McLennan- Not shown he's anywhere near good enough

Hedges- Our best player and probably away.
 

Find it bizarre this guy hasn't become an Aberdeen player with our links to that league, and the fact one of our direct rivals were in for him. 
 

Bizarre.

Well you may be right, but if you do genuinely think that 20 goals and 22 assists in 96 games (63 starts) for a winger is not good enough then I applaud you for maintaining high standards, but would suggest that you don't do any research on the players we have on the books as what you will find will make you thoroughly depressed.

Cormack said our budget would be competitive this season - this was after last season our budget was around £9m and Hibs around £7m.

Yeah but what does competitive mean. He could reduce it to £6.9M and still argue that its competitive. 

Tbh  given they way things are going it would probably be more comforting to hear that our budget has been reduced, as that might at least provide an explanation for our transfer activity that doesnt involve us being shit at identifying players.

Tough one this. I don’t think we have had a particularly bad window on paper but a lot hinges on Jenks and Ramirez being any use. But what has killed us is Glass and Cormack promising big signings and spending to accumulate. I think brown is a big signing but the rest aren’t. Absolute no way you can class Ramirez a player that hasn’t been able to hold down a regular place in starting lineup a big signing. That’s not to say he’s not going to be good but it’s very risky looking at his pedigree last 2/3 seasons. If Ramirez isn’t a hit we are in a terrible position.

I think they also consider Gallagher as a big signing being a current Scotland international squad member which is fair enough.

This would fit with the Cormack snake oil bravado sales pitches as he would be a profitable find potentially.
Embarrassing af for him though if it’s Hibs that got him. 
 

Young player looking to make step up in Europe.

He might turn out to be complete shite but on paper it looks like a lad we should have been snapping up.

US international and that's the market that Glass, Apaloo and Russell have just came from. 

24yrs old.

He's only on £2k/week

We've worked the work permit system as recently as three weeks ago.

Atlanta partnership (meaning he has a simple route back to mls (and florida no less) if it's required for any reason)

 

Looks like we've dropped the ball on this one.

A poor poor effort on our part one of our biggest realistic rivals who have last year and this consistently recruited better than us
