I thought letting him go was the right thing to do in the summer. In hindsight I think we'd have benefitted from having him in the squad.
I don't think letting him go was the problem, not replacing him with a younger similar type, that's the problem.

This. He's 36 soon and is Championship mid table at best now.

agreed, but we miss a bit of street-wise know-how in the middle of the park at times.

The fact that he is unwanted at one of the worst Hearts teams in history suggests he probably wouldn't have been a vital part of our Premier League plans.

If he continues playing, I could see him at Pats or Shels in Ireland.

Hells bells, that it should come to this!. Fetch Mark Lillis out of retirement while you’re at it, and Stephen Ireland

Sid's only early 60's. That's nothing these days.

Looking for a wide man who scores for fun head or foot.  Peter McParland is still hale and hearty.  And quicker than Jota.

I'd say he will try and keep playing at a competitive level, wouldn't be surprised if Stoke gave him a short term deal. Has done well for Mick McCarthy in an Irish shirt of late but that maybe says more about the likes of Hourihane, Hendrick et al

Whelan says he was thrown under the bus by the Hearts Manager.

But just look at that 3rd kit!

It's good to know I have at least one disciple in my quest to become the benign socialist dictator this country needs.

Always. I'm not much good in a scrap, mind, but I excel at salad dressings.
