So if it’s the model all clubs should be doing and we all know it’s not an exact science as more duds than stars why are you arguing about people suggesting this is the model we should follow?? Is it just for the argument some say left so you say right!!

Do you not think it’s dim pointing out the obvious? Do you not think every club wants to develop / sell players for more than they bought them for? There’s nothing groundbreaking in that concept, and it’s alarming to read that people think it’s even a strategy worth mentioning.

OF COURSE IT IS. FFS.

The challenge is more HOW to do that, not WHAT we should do.

Obviously I do as for some reason we have not been following this obvious model as we rarely sell players! There are plenty of obvious statements on here as it’s what happens on a forum

We obviously do it by scouting better in lower leagues and smaller leagues in other countries not what we do imo

Going by newspaper and mainstandmoan speculation, and dissecting what Cormack said at half time, you’d hazard at guess at the 2 players being Jason Kerr and Jamie McGrath. £1m for them two?

Clearly waiting for Kennedy and McGeough to depart and free up wages, and Ferguson to bring in a substantial transfer fee.

Still means we must be looking at another forward player.

May be way off the mark here but I reckon Ferguson will stay another season, looked reenergised the other night, alongside Brown. He might just think another year and then he’ll get better offers?

Come on now :clangers2: :rolleyes:

He may have seemed energised on the pitch but he looked totally pissed off and uninterested in his interview.

Do you seriously think that any clubs don't want to do that?

You are massively over simplifying it

Yes we’ve lost to many players for nothing. As much as Iv loved them playing for us we made nothing. Only now and again should one of our best players be leaving for nothing. Not every season like before. Maybe Jim mclean had the right idea with his 10 year contracts 😂

There was me thinking football was about winning games and trophies rather than making money.....

Money is the route to win things nowadays, even Leicester splashed cash to win prem . You need to be able to compete at the right level and get some luck along the way

That my friend would be superb if he did.   With Brown affording the security behind him he could be in for a mega mega season, then worry about his move next summer.

I am sure he does like being with us. It will be his agent trying to do what he is paid to do…get him more dosh. Some players are motivated by cash and desire to succeed, others are happy to just be in the game. Lewis Ferguson was never a lifelong Dons fan but he has been decent for us. I would sell him if we get offered £3m. I think we can replace him no problem.

Partially agree RJ , I think the agent has a bit to do with it after all that’s how they make their money .don’t see the relevance of lifelong dons fan as plenty who have been also moved on .

3m with add ons,  yup acceptable and would allow good options to be brought in

438 miles Orlando to Atlanta by road. 7 hours or so.....one way

Or a choice of 4 airlines flying direct. Published times around 90 minutes each way, but more likely at least 15 minutes quicker. I suppose not much different time wise to players for the Dundee teams commuting from the Glasgow area

 

 

You think going to an airport for a flight, having the flight & getting from the airport to the city is the same as driving Glasgow to dundee?

Cormack should be giving Glass £1m of that to reinvest into the team. It would win him some support from a few doubters also…win win.

Good player on his day, big solid bastard, mind when he was doing that, wages must have been big even back then, when you think of it though, only a 55 min flight from amsterdam to Edinburgh. Kennedy leaving from Ayrshire up to Aberdeen every day would take longer 😂

Distance between Schiphol and London City airports is 209 miles or to Heathrow 231 miles. Published flight times are an hour but in practice, little more than 30 minutes each way. It would piss me off doing it daily but on the money Bogarde earned I could probably live with it

I can't see anybody commuting Orlando to Atlanta daily, which is more than twice the distance to Heathrow from Schiphol.

Yeah. So no one is commuting from Orlando to Atlanta, or vice versa. What a pointless argument you've manufactured 😂
