Reading reports today that Aberdeen want £4m for Cosgrove, with interest coming from Stoke.

I'm not sure if the Sheep are taking the pissing or not with that valuation because I haven't seen much of this guy, however his goalscoring record this season is pretty good and still only 22 years old.

Is he someone we should be monitoring should we lose Alfie next Summer?

He's obviously vital to them but not good enough as a first choice striker at Rangers.
 
He scores goals, an absolute handful, will probably get better but is he Rangers?

We are improving month by month so certainly wouldn't want to see £4m spunked on him

At £1-1.5M I'd maybe show some interest as a squad player who we could throw on should times get difficult

Can't argue with his scoring record up here and he has caused us problems in the past, but he isn't the quality we need as main striker.

I thought the lad was a clogger/battering ram however, the goal he scored from the edge of the box last week suggests he may actually have more to his game than I gave him credit for.

I haven't seen enough of him but with his scoring record it's not a bad thing the sheep are holding out for a decent price.

He will be ideal for the Championship in England. Don't ask him to go any higher though as his style wont be tolerated by the PL ref's down south.

Championship you still get away with a lot more.

I would cry my eyes out if we went from The Buffalo to him.

He's no where near as bad as some make him out but then he is levels below Alfie.

When the time comes to replace him we obviously wont get similar but I'll bet my house on it he will be better than Cosgrove.

Price seems about fair if I'm honest, particularly to English clubs.

As much as I hate them, I don't blame them for trying to get best fee they can, why should English clubs pay pennies for the decent talent up here. Clubs down south chuck stupid money at other clubs down there so this countries clubs should stop selling ourselves short. I think he's a good player, not good enough for us mind.

I wonder if we thought the same before we signed Morelos from HJK though?

Definitely takes more than just scoring goals for an average Aberdeen side to make the grade at Rangers I agree, but at at least this guy has so far proven he can score goals in this league and has age on his side.

Be interesting to see how he plays tomorrow night, we'll need to watch him closely.

He'd do well in the championship down south, big physical guy that is a decent finisher. He's not good enough for us though

That valuation is more realisitic unlike donkey McKennas

He might do ok in the English Championship but not for us
Just the point I was going to make.
Cosgrove must be raging at his valuation by the sheep compared to McKennas.

Not near Rangers class but he has developed into a very reliable centre forward. A good target man and ironically exactly what we need at Hearts with our current playing style.

Would probably score a barrel in the Championship because he’s so physical but would be found out at any higher level because of limitations with the ball at his feet. He’s no Pukki in other words.

Mind that hysterical FF thread where folk said we need a target man because Defoe and Morelos were too short!
Queue the 'wee' Buff nodding in 3 outstanding headers against 6ft+ defenders in the space of 4 days.
£4m for Cosgrove or £7m for Kent?
English football is wank

Another in a long line of Giant plodders to come up from the English lower leagues to play This country's form of Soccer/Rugby.Scores a lot of penalties in his stats I believe.Put him in a football team and he'd be like a fish out of water

No problem with them looking for that sort of fee for him.
It’s about time we started getting decent fees for players leaving our league to go south.
Given the market prices in England it’s not an unreasonable value.
