He was signed as a cheap option to make up the numbers and a couple of months back was probably considering that his professional career might be fizzling out at the end of the season. Suddenly of the back of a couple of good performances and one goal (followed by performances which saw him dropped) he’s been handed an opportunity in the SPL. Even if we offered a 3 year deal on massive wages (which I wouldn’t be inclined to do on the basis of the limited evidence so far) there’s no obligation on his part to sign it and the Aberdeen opportunity is too big a break to turn down from his point of view.


Reading the club statement this was the best outcome - that it took him a few months to come into contention quashes why he wasn't playing.

One of those things as people went mad when we offered him a six month contract so to offer him an eighteen month deal would have been seemed as absurd to some.

A few games later and he is off for money, good luck to the lad.

My hunch is this was found out just before the Wendies replay & this is why he was dropped for "personal reasons".

A player who has hardly played many games leaving causes you stress?

How on earth do you deal with real life?

Probably why he missed the Sheff Wed game then.
So let's be clear we sell a decent player for about half of what we paid for a poor player who Curle and his sidekicks had scouted.
And people still stick up for him.
Wake up he is a clueless manager who has never achieved anything. And probably never will.

At the moment, if you had the choice of playing for Aberdeen or Carlisle it’d be Aberdeen every time apart from exceptional family reasons.

Cosgrove was nothing special but both him and Miller, doesn’t say much really, were/are better than Stockton will ever be so unless we find another striker soon it’s anothet very poor January.

At least we’re not Stockport

Someone wants to buy him off us after a few games for hard cash.

If it wasn't Keith Curle selling Cosgrove then everyone would have said well done but because of the agenda that some have against Keith then it is a bad bit of business!


No offence Munchy, but that is absolute rubbish.
I know Cosgrove still has a lot to prove, but he is a player who has turned into the only bright light we currently have for the future.
We should be doing all we can to keep him, give him a regular run of games and build our team around him.
If it doesn't work out, then we may have lost out on 25k. Big deal.
The fact that Aberdeen appear to have spotted a good prospect after 3-4 games says it all. It took Curle 6 months, and he still only played him because he had run out of patience with our other 'strikers'
And I use the term 'strikers' very loosely.
The fact that the club appear to be ready to accept buttons for him is fuc*ing criminal.


Maybe the personal terms were too good to turn down -his agent will have seen the £££££ signs for his commission cheque and the fact that Twardek and Stockton have arrived will have maybe have been a factor. Also that ommition from the Sheff Wed game , officially injured!!!!, might have been a factor. Maybe I'm wrong on that but who knows.

How on earth do you deal with real life?


The Cosgrove situation is a symptom of the sickness which has taken hold at BP.

Your blind defence of Curle is your own business, but it is exactly that - blind.

We will make it through this season with no recognised keeper of our own, despite knowing last season that we were likely to have no goalie on the books at the end of last season.

That in itself is incompetent, negligent, reckless and irresponsible from a manager whose performance over the past 12 months has been absolute garbage, both in terms of transfer dealings and quality on the pitch.

We went into this window lacking fire power. We have disposed of two strikers, replacing them with one. We were short on numbers already, and are even worse now.

As for real life, I find it a breath of fresh air away from football. Which is why I will take the next few months to enjoy it whenever chance allows, rather than trying to find ways out of other commitments so I can sit in a freezing concrete block wondering why I am still bothering.

Thankfully I've only made a handful of games this year due to the real world. But the feeling I get from the club at the moment is one I've experienced a few times over the past few decades... inertia has kicked in, and we really are in the shit this time. It becomes more obvious with every week that passes.

Some of the comments on here are absolutely laughable - everyone was moaning about us offering him a deal to the end of the season about a month ago!!

The lad has shown promise but he has scored ONE goal for us, he's no world beater.

He was signed as a squad player and if the rumours are true we've managed to get £40k for him!

This is the equivalent of Nabi having 3/4 games in the league and then we sell him - hardly something to kick up a fuss about.

Our hands were tied anyway as he'd signed a pre-contract, might as well sell him now and get more money than we'd have got in a compensation package in Summer?

Only issue I have is it's 2 strikers out and 1 striker in...

According to the Aberdeen Manager it was us that were keen to offload him in this transfer window... so that his him and Miller out leaving Hope Bennett and the new lad... so yet again another January transfer window where we lose striking options and come out "weaker". I hope Curle has a trick up his sleeve before 11 pm tonight.

Have you read the Article on the O/S?

Explaining the deal, chief executive Nigel Clibbens said: “We were contacted by Aberdeen on Monday and they informed us that they’d reached a pre-contract agreement [during talks this week] to sign Sam in the summer [of 2018 - at the end of the current campaign].

"It took him a few months to get some of his fundamentals correct and we're disappointed that he's gone, but we wish him well. It’s now up to him to make the most of this next step." said Keith. What the hell are his fundamentals? Curle signs him on a six month contract then barely plays him despite Bennett not performing. No wonder the lad gets cheesed off and signs a pre-contract deal with a big club.

Yes of course once the pre-contract had been signed then the Club did well to extract a fee. The issue is Keith's handling of his career when we could potentially have had another valuable asset and a goal scorer on the pitch.

I was wrong with Wyke, well once he started scoring and was off straight away, I won’t be wrong in this fella.

Cosgrove will score more SPL goals than Stockton and Miller will score more goals than Stockton in the remaining months of this season.

They can only agree a pre contract with him because we've piddled about offering him a 6 month deal.

To be honest I've not seen enough of him to say he will or won't progress but have to say it's a very short sighted move on the club's part.

Suppose this is what happens when the manager and board decide not to try to resign any players until later on in the season.

It is a slight flaw in Curle's "pay em mean, keep em keen" projects that a player has 100+ other professional clubs on this island who they can impress enough to get a better contract at too.

Not as bad as the madden saga though, there we jettisoned off a player for 20K who was a proven goalscorer at our then level, and who then went on to get promoted with his new side 3 months later. Curle > Abbott

FWIW, leeds are looking at buying a forest green trainee

We in particular just have a track record of selling our best players for buttons. The only time we got proper money for a player was Joe Garner and half of that then went to Blackburn Rovers.


After all the certain clauses and agents fees etc I wouldn't call 110K for Garner proper money.

[censored] Curle, [censored] Jenkins, and [censored] those who feel we should be happy as a lower midtable bottom tier side.


Get a grip you little drama queen fanny.



Ah look, the happy clapper goes on the offensive when somebody decides they've had enough of the amateur shite the club is serving up.

[censored] you, gobshite [censored].


Wind your neck in you little tuss, you're a grown man, supposedly, and here you are on the internet acting as though the world is ending because we've got money for a player who's scored one goal for us and was always going to be leaving no matter what.

There's literally billions of worse things happening than this in the world, most of them at CUFC, so find something else to cry out about you little baby.

At least we're not Mullen.
