Matty Kennedy ?

I was thinking that.

He's a more realistic and affordable option for a permanent transfer than Middleton.

Plus Goodwin tried to sign him before he went to the sheep.

I hope not,  overrated. 

 Not so much overrated, as not that good.

Don't think I've ever really seen him cause us any major problems whilst playing for The Fakes or The Sheep. 

Any form he showed seems to have dropped off a cliff since he joined the latter.

He's fast as far as I can remember. That was about it.

This sounds like an utter fabrication. ( yeah, I know it's the S**)

Total fabrication, but what are Aberdeen looking at for Ferguson? I wouldn't say McGrath should be worth much less than him TBH. £2,000,000 would be a good starting point for negotiations as surly apart from the big clubs, Brexit will make English clubs look north and we shouldn't be getting shit offers in that case either.

Fergusons worth is based on performances primarily against the Old Firm over a longer period.

Woul Ferguson even be an automatic starter in Saints team?

No idea and its a non event question given he doesnt play for us. My answer previously to another poster was to do with valuations. Given you have stated on more than one occasion you dont rate McGrath as no more than a pk taker and scorer (which is your opinion) and fair play despite actual stats being put up to show what he contributes and how his goals have been scored. McGrath is worth in my opinion 2 or 3 times what offers have come in will prob go for 2x times the current offers with a hefty add on. But Ferguson is rated at what ever Aberdeen deem fit i think £2 mill minimum ( primarily based on games /performances against Old Firm) and its there right to ask that. Personally i dont think he is worth as much as that maybe 1.25-1.5 mill at most.

Josh Doig is another one that seems to be in the "massive" transfer fee category.

I've watched him a few times and he's been O.K., but is far from the finished article IMO.

The same age as Erhahon, but has played a significantly less games than Erhahon. I'd imagine that contracts will be of similar length.

If any club puts in an offer for Erhahon, the fee that Hibs are demanding for Doig should be pointed out to them.

I definitely agree with you on that

I’ve been looking at reported fees for similar players to Erhahon and McGrath and whenever a club approaches us it’s always without exception a lowball offer

Hearing fee agreed (including sell on %) for Calum Waters from Killie.

Jim loves a bit of the 3-5-2 formation, so looking at the current squad it looks like this (maybe from the Thistle match) with squad depth:
GK  = Alnwick / Lyness / Urminský
RCB = Fraser / Finlayson
CCB = Shaughnessy / McCarthy
LCB = Dunne / 
RWB = Henderson / Tait
CDM = Power / MacPherson / Reid
CM  = McGrath / Erhahon / Flynn
LWB = Tanser / Tait
CAM = Kiltie / McAllister
ST  = Main / Erwin / Jack
ST  = Brophy / Dennis / Jamieson*

*out on loan

From what I have seen people say from rumours etc: 
• Glenn Middleton LM/LW
• Jordan Jones RM/LW
• Calum Waters LB
• Matty Kennedy LM/RWB/CAM
• Michael Johnston LM/RM

• So Waters could be left sided cover for LWB rather than the right footed Tait?
• Kennedy could fill number of positions, would he get a starting place over Henderson then at RWB?
• With the formation that Jim likes, I can't then see how Middleton, Jones or Johnston would fit. Also I believe bigger/richer clubs would be looking at the likes of Jones and Johnston.

If you could get potentially say both Waters and Kennedy (doubt it though) as could be more realistic and also seems Jim admires them:
GK  = Alnwick / Lyness / Urminský
RCB = Fraser / Finlayson
CCB = Shaughnessy / McCarthy
LCB = Dunne / 
RWB = Kennedy / Tait / Henderson
CDM = Power / MacPherson / Reid
CM  = McGrath / Erhahon / Flynn
LWB = Tanser / Waters / Tait
CAM = Kiltie / McAllister
ST  = Main / Erwin / Jack
ST  = Brophy / Dennis / Jamieson*

Can't see it myself.

We've got Tanser as first pick in that position.

Tait and Dunne can cover.

Would be  a very strange decision to pay a transfer fee for back up.

Also, sell on fee? :lol

He was DJC's favourite player.:rolleyes:

 

To be fair, he's not my least favourite, nowhere near it. But for a fullback who strugglescto tackle without fouling, can't go past a man, has a tendency to let opposing wingers in the box before committing to a tackle and whose crosses hit the first man or don't get off the deck, he's alright. 😂
