 Would you have these players back?
Topic Originator: incognito  
Date:   Wed 9 Jun 00:32

Just been watching some old highlights over the last 2/3 year`s and thinking that a couple of them I`d have back for this season!

Joe Thompson: Currently plying his trade at Derry City was a cracking player for us just a shame about his injury he would be an ideal player to fill the midfield.

Kallum Higginbotham: Katy Perry himself always hot and cold but on his day he`s totally unplayable. Dropped down to league one with Kelty but can`t help but think he`s far too good for that level.

Callum Morris: This will split opinion`s and with his injuries accumulating could be a risk but he is an excellent centre half at championship level.

If we are back tracking when they were in their prime. Norrie,Roy Barry, Brewster,Crawford, Andy Smith and Skerla without thinking too deeply.

I would take back Kevin Nisbet (fat chance of that happening!) and Sean Rooney. Would also be very pleased to get Ewan Henderson back.

I would take Morris back but Watson and big Gaz look like a good partnership and big Gaz was unlucky to get dropped but it was the club captain`s place he took tbf.
I don`t think Morris would be happy being a benchwarmer so probably a no to him.

No to the other two. Not good enough. Probably do a job but if we are genuinely trying to win the league we need to be setting our sights higher. Who that may be I have no idea in all honesty. Draper and Vigurs could be good additions.

Dare say this isn`t what the OP had in mind.

I imagine its more to do with players that are feasible.


Callum Morris as back up for Vytas and Watson....Aye probably take that.

Does Fraser Murray count? Would have him back on a contract.

What about Shaun Byrne ?

Would do a good holding job.

Dundee might think he`ll be good for them in the Premier.

No to all 3. If we want to get promoted to the Premier League then it's laughable that the trio mentioned would be involved.

Nothing is laughable... I just want player's here that want to be here. Like Nisbet waiting for that first or second chance to shine.
You can look back as far as you want but i doubt you would get a player to play for us better than the first time round.
It's lads like Murray we want. He is prepared to walk away from Hibs despite 1 year left on his contract because he wants to play regular football. He wants to progress and he enjoyed his time here because .... He got regular football.

Absolute no to all three, apart from Killie next season there is no club in the league that matches us in terms of size or fanbase. St Johnstone have won a cup double last season. Are they are a bigger club than us? I am not for one minute thinking we can replicate that but they should be a model for a club like us.

Three choices- then a player who was rotten in his last season with us and is now at Kelty Hearts in League 2, A Crock from Ross County and a midfielder who played well at one game at Tannadice before getting a bad injury and was pretty anonymous after that.

We need to stop acting small time.

Awight Pat!

Stop looking backwards, it seldom pays dividends in the football world

These guys were good in their day, but their day has passed now and it’s time to look ahead and unearth some new talent who will drive us forward to achieve our goals

^^^ In order to move forward you sometimes have to look back.

If it worked in the past, then re-adopt and possibly re-adapt it for the future.

Good in their day?

More likely to find rocking horse sh1t than get a solid good game from higgy but the other 2 were good, morris was excellent with us originally but too injury prone now.

Just sitting here drenched in my own negativity!

Only Morris was good enough for the Premiership and he`s regressed since then.

I think Higgy was past his best when he joined us and his performances deteriorated as time passed.

Joe Thomson had loads of energy but usually ended up losing possession or taking the wrong option. His bad injury probably put an end to any chance of improvement.

There`s an unhealthy obsession on here with players who have left the club. Some of them weren`t always appreciated whilst they were with us but most of them are easily replaced.

I would expect that our new manager will be checking on the availability of players as I write this. Indeed he may be one of the first to talk to the new manager of Celtic.

I don't know if Morris has regressed. The County fans seem to think he was decent from what I read on their forum but his time had been blighted by injuries.

A fully fit Morris would be a good addition to most squads in our division. Hoping he stayed fit would be the issue.
