 Bruce Anderson
Topic Originator: Glenrothes Par  
Date:   Fri 24 Jul 19:21

Believe we are interested in Bruce Anderson of Aberdeen who is currently
2 years into a three years deal at Aberdeen. However due to his failure to break into the first team Aberdeen might let him go for a small fee
Lets watch and see

Can't see it myself. He has been in an around the first team at Aberdeen recently and McInnes rated him highly. I'm sure he has been quite saying Anderson is the best finisher at the club. Would be delighted if we could get him though.

He's a smashing wee player and would undoubtedly be a great addition to our squad, but he really is tiny, which would make it pointless to hoist high balls into the box. If we are able to get him, the team would have to play to his strengths.



Not your average Sunday League player.

He is a superb finisher. Would be delighted if he came back.

I remember a goal he scored at Alloa where he seemed to control the ball and shoot in one movement from the edge of the box; classy.

before McManus and O'Hara signed and possibly on loan maybe, now and a fee which i doubt would be that small i cant see it.

he needs to get away from Aberdeen whether its now or at the end of his contract imo, get playing somewhere week in week out.

Needs to get away from Aberdeen and play every week. Natural finisher, wasted last season.

I’d live him at East End but we are ok for stokers I think.

Mon the Pars!!!!!!!!!!!

With Cosgrove most likely moving on, I'd imagine Anderson will stay at Aberdeen.

C'mon Ye Pars!

Well that'll add fuel to the fire

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

Anderson needs away and play regular first team games. Very similar to shankland had too.

Shankland comparison is a good one. Both gave the impression when here of not being put off by a missed opportunity and were efficient overall in terms of converting chances provided.

Better than both strikers we signed and will almost certainly be involved with Aberdeen this season, nonsense rumour

Anderson looked a better prospect than Shankland did when he was here. Absolutely awful song the NW came up with him though so thank fck we won't need to hear that again.

Would take him in a heartbeat, very hard to see it happening unless he and Aberdeen agree he won't get enough game time for his development and decide he can leave. For this to happen though we'd probably have to send McCann/Mcgill out on loan to make room in the squad

Why? As far as strike forces go, we already have a good one, adding another good option on top of that doesn't necessarily make it better.

A good goalkeeper, along with a good option for out wide will make the biggest difference to our season.

Judging by what McInnes is quoted as saying in this article, and the fact that BA has scored three in two friendlies, I think we can safely say this is a non starter.

Give him credit, he came of the bench and scored a 90 min equaliser in the same fixture last year.

Aberdeen couldn't have started the season in an unluckier position considering.....they were brutal today.

Anderson won’t be there much longer, he is at best 3rd choice. Unless he scores a
Load before both injuries clear up. The way Aberdeen play also doesn’t suit His type of play.

Punting long balls to a 5'8 striker against two 6'2+ CBs is never going to reflect his ability. See AJs Pars teams.

3rd choice in will just about guarantee you a place in the squad every week. If he’s content with the occasional start and a good chance of coming on most weeks then he’ll stay at Aberdeen. With his wages they’ll be happy to see him fulfil that role. It will take him personally pushing to leave to get a regular starting place elsewhere.

The changes to loan regulations, different season start dates and extra subs/subs bench will be interesting this season.

It wouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see players like Bruce playing for their parent club August-October, go on loan for November/December, go back to their parent club for January/February and back out on loan for March/April.
