Maybe the club are putting it out there to avoid leaks as no doubt the player and his agent would put it out there.

Already in the daily ranger online

When has not being able to afford a player ever stopped them?

Champions League cash? They could afford £4m no bother at all if they really wanted him.

You would like to think that Cormack would reject every single offer they put in though.......it's an entirely different situation to the one that happened with Wright. For now, we hold the whip hand.

But I'm not at all convinced that Cormack has the balls

£1.2m is an insult of an offer.

But talk of £4m-£5m is fanciful, that’s over-rating him.

The trouble is we have an unsettled player who wants to leave. To get from the £1.2m to anything around say £2.5m will be difficult. 

£2.5m with add ons & I’d be tempted to deal, on the proviso a good chunk gets re-invested.

You could bring in Irvine & pay a fee for McGrath at St Mirren.

You could even put in a cheeky offer of £500k for Boyle (which allegedly allows us to talk to him). Unlikely he’d come here but if you don’t ask.

Losing Ferguson won’t be the end of the world. 

 

Why exactly is 4 million fanciful it should be the least we are asking for and willing to sell for

I was more thinking if the starting point was £1.2m, with an unhappy player desperate to leave, it’s a stretch to get to £4m-£5m.

The transfer request does weaken our hand slightly but the fact remains that he has 3 years left of a contract that he agreed to. We are still in a strong position.  Let’s wait and see if the transfer request generates any other clubs interest.  If 3-4 other clubs come sniffing about then we say 4million and he’s yours.   Time is very much on our side.   
That being said,  I fully expect the Glasgow press to go into full Anti-Aberdeen mode in the next few days/ weeks.

How much did hibs knock back for nisbet in January window? Over 2 million I think and Ferguson has done more than nisbet

He’s got 3 years on his contract. Perfectly acceptable number is 4-5 million. If they don’t put up the money he doesn’t go

Could Aberdeen have released the statement about rejecting Ferguson’s transfer request in an attempt to keep the price down of his replacement and any other players they had earmarked to purchase with the fee received for Ferguson.

3 Million plus realistic add ons and a sell on clause would be a good deal. 1.2 million isn't a long way from 3/4 for a club like Watford. Happy to see the back of him after this today tbh, we took him from Hamilton reserves and gave a him a long term deal, paying a good fee in the process. Absolutely no need for a transfer request after one bid of 1.2 million has been rejected. Transfer requests are nothing more than to drum up further interest in your player and to show the club bidding that you are desperate for them to come back in. 

Ferguson is a good player, nothing more than that and I'm sure Watford won't lose any sleep moving on to a new target, which is probably worrying Ferguson and his agent.

And we are left with a deeply unhappy player, who might not be trying too hard in future. You would hope this wouldn't be the case but it has happened in the past, And having that utter cunt McMurdo as his agent, literally anything could be happening behind the scenes. 

For young eens who have no idea who McMurdo is, he was Maurice Johnston's agent in 1989. Have a wee google to see what happened if you still don't know.....

I’ll paraphrase.

McMurdo is an untrustworthy, bigoted hun bastard.

I had no idea he was still an agent, he’s 72 FFS.

Hun cunt.

Man the amount of turnover could be massive again this summer. Our new mid/rb from rangers also drawing interest it seems.

I remember getting a scolding for saying AFC should target more players on loan. But that'd be too much turnover I was told.

I dont see the offensive/creative names coming in to make a difference. 

If JET is taking over for curtis main fine. But if he is here to challenge the old firm or even secure us 3rd place... we'll we are basically no different than a fat single mom (or mum if you prefer) on tinder trying to land prince charming.

I see choppy waters ahead.

He just regurgitates stories from newspapers, he’s not “in the know”.

I was lurking on a Watford forum to see what they made of their interest in Ferguson, very interesting......

Firstly they are apparently broke, so unlikely to meet our 3 to 4 million valuation. Secondly one poster claims to know of a few scouts....Ferguson's agent offered him to Norwich and was promptly told they were not interested.

Absolute pish. So all a club has to do is offer peanuts and the selling price automatically drops?

The club quite rightly described £1.2 million as an insult. No danger getting to £2.5 million will “be difficult”. If it is he doesn’t leave

Im sure the £150 million in TV and price money they’re in line for will fill a hole.

Club should refuse to deal with that hun snake of an agent going forward

For me, no coincidence he hands request in same day Scotland squads announced. 
don’t get me wrong I think Turnbulls defo better, but Ferguson always ahead of him in u21 pecking order so he’s probably kicking himself as he might had a chance of going with a better season.

Think Mcrorie will be another kicking himself watching likes of Patterson get in.

Neither have been good enough to merit a place in the squad. 
 

The hun RB Paterson has been very good since he came in and is worthy of his place. 

 

McCrorie hasn't been great since about October, and Ferguson tailed off massively from his excellent start until after the split, really.
