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.

Lewis and his dad clearly loved Derek McInnes, so that maybe had a part to play in it too. He seems like the kind of guy who will keep working hard, even if it is just to earn himself a bigger and better move. He'll know that if he can put in some stand out performances and bag some goals before the end of the transfer window he'll attract more interest, so there's every incentive for him to get off to a flyer.

I thought his interview was quite interesting as was the wee look and smile that Hewitt and Gardner gave each other when the camera panned back to the gantry 

Still wanting out ASAP would be my guess

Expect in the next few weeks  to see his agent mouthing off in the Daily Retard and stirring things up again.

Very true. And let’s be honest….if we played for any team except Aberdeen we would be chasing the money also. Some teams we wouldn’t play for but whoever is going to pay the most would certainly cross our minds.

Absolutely - I don't think any (or at least not the reasonable ones) Aberdeen fan would begrudge Ferguson a move down south where he can earn a lot more money. We've all known the day would come for the past couple of seasons, and he has played a lot of games for us now. The disappointing thing was him handing in the transfer request - he could have just got on with playing his best and a move would come soon enough. All that did was annoy the fans and give the media something to latch on to. More than likely came from his agent though rather than him. I reckon he'll be gone in this window, or January at the latest - and he'll go with my best wishes.

Unless he goes to a team in Glasgow. He surely wouldn’t be daft enough to be bothered with that nonsense. I reckon he would handle the English Premiership with ease. He is obviously a quick learner and always eager to impress

My loon is on some Dons group on Instagram and apparently there is talk of us after a young St Mirren defender, who they’ve already knocked back a bid from Rotherham for?

Probably shite.
Edit  - Must be Connor McCarthy.

Rotherham bid £100k, apparently St Mirren want £200k.

Think I’d rather we went for Jamie McCart for that money.

How long do McCart and Jason Kerr have on their contracts?

Cant see any way we’d pay half a million for Jamie McGrath when we could get him for free next summer and relative buttons in Jan.

McCart has 12 months.

You’re confusing me… why bring McGrath into this when talking about McCarthy?

If we wait it risks allowing another team to nip in ahead of us and snap him up. And even if they didn't, St Mirren would probably prefer to keep him till his contract runs out  than lose him for £100k or so in January. If we were guaranteed to be keeping Ferguson till next summer, it would probably be worth risking leaving and getting him on a pre-contract In January (assuming no other team has snapped him up). But if we are looking to sell Ferguson for big money this window then we shouldn't be fucking around.....get him signed up!

Assuming there's no freak result on Thursday, the cash we make from the next gate plus the Hacken gate and the accrued prize money would just about pay for McGrath even before any cash comes in for selling Ferguson

Yeah maybe so, but it’s not the Aberdeen way, to spunk that amount of dough on someone with only 12 months left on their contract, even if there is a new Sheriff in town, with all new ideas.

500k (fees and wages) tops IMO, given the amount of cash we've lost to no gate money for a season

McCarthy is a good player btw. I’ve mentioned I’d like him before. I’d take him ahead of McCart but behind Kerr.

Too many right footed CH imo if we went for Kerr. Considine might last the season as first choice but he will be 35 by the time it finishes and can't be expected to get another extension next summer, certainly not as first choice anyway. 

McCart for me

We're not doing this left foot, right foot stuff again are we? 

I thought we'd consigned that to the bin some time ago.

Do we need to have our centre backs being right or left footed?

No harm on both being right or both left.

Totally irrelevant as none of us have any say in who Glass might or might not go for. But my preference is for a right footed/left footed CH pairing. Won't deviate from that opinion

Exactly. 

 

We gave him a long list of right footed centre halves who played on the left of a two. 

We even gave him a long list of right footed left backs. 

We also told him his theory would have meant looking to replace Miller or McLeish. 

Yet it still isn't put to bed. 

It appears he'd rather sign an inferior player because they've got the correct 'foot'.
