Another fat waster whom we've been paying a fortune to do sod all.

Much as it grieves me to say it but we need him back!
We can't afford to just write him off, get him fit and playing!
The trouble is would he play for Bruce now?
One of them needs to go realistically for this to happen and it doesn't look as though the manager is going anywhere, mores the pity!

I can't understand the clamour to get the waster back.

Not really a clamour, more of a case of maybe we can't, or shouldn't, just bomb squad a player given our situation.

The problems rest with him, not us.

We don't know that, supposedly he got himself into shape and wanted to play and Bruce didn't want to know. I'd prefer not to play him, but if our finances really are fecked then I don't see how we benefit by creating a new bomb squad.

Well letís hope heís fit and wants to play. If he does he could be an asset for us; or if as it looks likely Bruce is staying then we could loan him out hopefully and cla back part of his wages.

If he isnít fit or interested in playing file under the Richards bucket.

I'd suggest he's the anti-Hutton, the piss taking wanker.

All depends on his attitude. If he's desperate to get back in and is putting the work in, he should be given a second chance. If he doesn't have that attitude, he can go for the right price or a loan if we can't get that.

Agreed the bomb squad idea doesnít really work.

Donít know what the going rate for a years loan is in the Championship or SPL but hopefully he can be shipped elsewhere as I canít see Brucie ever even looking to give him another chance.

None of us are privy to what has actually happened so we donít know if there is a way back. 

Personally I would love to see Jack & McCormack playing behind Hogan as a front 3 but I doubt weíll ever see it.

With Jimmy and Albert out wide. What could possibly go wrong?
