Kyle Lafferty.

Recommended Posts

Jambotommy

I think many football fans really have to adapt to modern times(myself included). 

Until the late eighties, player loyalty was likely around the 90% area. A few decades later I'd put that around the 50% mark. 

I believe that nowadays, loyalty is putting in a shift once the shirt gets pulled on. When a player moves on, the loyalty becomes to that new shirt. 

Maybe being a little bit naive... But that's how I see it...

My question is simples, would you take Lafferty back if as reported (BBC football gossip) he has probably played his last game for the blue butt cheek.

no thanks

Personal issues out weigh the benefits on the park.

Rather he was someone else's problem

Hearts have struggled badly in front of goal all season, and we’ve had big semi final and now a final against Celtic. Selling Lafferty and thinking we had enough to cope with his loss with the likes of Maclean and Vanacek ( ??? )was a decision which has been PROVEN wrong, we had the player under contract and had no obligation to sell to Rangers. A proven terrible call from Levein and Budge and they deserve to be called out on it no matter if the player trying to push through a move. The paltry 6 figure sum of money was not worth it. Some said “brilliant business from Budge, can’t believe our luck getting £500k for our top scorer”. What’s that cash bought us, Clare and Wighton? PISH would rather have kept Lafferty, let him throw his toys out the pram, he would have got over it.

 

I feel sorry for him as his move has gone exactly the way every Hearts fan predicted. Lafferty could have had the best year of his career this season at Hearts if he’d put his mind to it.

 

Unfortunately in my opinion the ship has now sailed in terms of Laffs career so we won’t see him back at Hearts. This year was the year we should have kept him and then sent him on his way up the M8 as a free agent this summer. Who knows he might have had even 2 cup winners medals in his pocket. Certainly we’d have had a better chance at Murrayfield with big Lafferty coming on instead of Danny Amankwaa. At least we’ll have Uche Power for Hampden.

 

For this summer, Hearts need to plan ahead for the future, IMO Lafferty will not be the same player any more, let him sit there and take a wage from Rangers. That’s what he wanted.

definitely take him back, provided he publicly apologies for his conduct and assures he is here for hearts and no one else

In a Heartbeat...would have scored at least 2 today, that's the difference between Uche and a real striker

100% this, our goal difference of -5 shows that we need someone who can score goals and he’s proven it at this level. I’d rather Lafferty than some nobody from abroad who can’t adapt to the league. Let’s be honest if Levein is staying his signing record is a hit or a miss and we know what we will get with Lafferty so it’s a safe option.

How many has he scored this season.

Doesnt get on the bench for Rangers with Morelos out.

 

I can imagine fans not being that bothered .

That mixed in with his snide behaviour will do me thanks.

Mentally sound .

We must be the worst set of fans for wanting players or managers we've already had. Every season folk are desperate to get old players back. Move on like. 

 

Also folk acting like cause he scored 19 goals when he was here that season, the best season of his life, means he'll be a profilic goal scorer if he comes back, after barely kicking a ball and being a year older. Madness.

I don't care what he does elsewhere. He was settled at Hearts and scored goals for us. Only the lure of playing for the team he supports took him away from us.

If we could get him back on loan next season where we pay him about half of his previous wage with us then yes. One of the cleanest strikers of the ball I've seen. Gets up for big games and Levein will know exactly how to deal with him. 

This. No way we should he get another signing on fee from us.

If we have room in the budget for a player of Lafferty's calibre, then I would rather it was spent on a creative midfielder or wide players.

 

To me that's a more pressing need than centre forward.

I'll take a 19 goal a season dickhead over a 0 goal striker at this point since he's the only one we've had in donkeys who can batter them in no matter the opposition.

Thankfully, the fans will have no say in the matter.  For the record, I'm a yes - how many games have I been at this season where I came out thinking that we were all over teams in the 1st half but just didn't score...  He'd possibly make the difference, but the deal would have to heavily favour us I think.

Because of whom our opponents are?  Yes, just for this one game.

 

That's your question answered.

 

As a Hearts player again?  No.

Up until they played us at Tynie I would have had him back in a heartbeat but after that? No thanks. I’d rather we spent the money on someone else, who at least has a bit of respect.

There must be other goal scorers that are not Kyle Lafferty. 

We must have the most backwards thinking support out there. The only winger we could think of is Walker, last year Templeton. Next manager Burley or Sergio.

We should get Zeifuik, FFS.

Nah. I don't want our players thinking we're a stocking horse for the huns. I.e if you fail or can't get your move we'll still take you. Let him wind up his career at Motherwell or Linfield if he really needs that hunnish behaviour to get out of bed in the morning.

He's almost 32 and has effectively been out of the game for the season. 

 

It's a tough call but I'd hope he'd be able to offer something still.

It's lack of trust in our scouting network tbh and the realisation that 19 goal a season strikers really are rare, coupled with the fact that some players fit in at clubs and some don't.

Doesn't matter a **** what we think as supporters anyway since we have zero bearing on the scouting/transfers anyway. But if your inference is that we seek comfort in the familiar, then I'll raise you Wighton AND Vanacek.

Lets be clear, we all know Lafferty is not the sharpest tool in the box and he no doubt had his dream of returning to his hero's and making an impact, but to be honest that was never going to happen with the set up at Rangers. He was well managed (given his off field problems and lack of brain cells) at Hearts by Austin and CL and in return he gave us 19 goals in what turned out to be one of the most productive seasons in his career. I have no doubt if he returned that he could be handled in such a way that he would feel wanted and valued and once again start knocking them in. Despite the baggage and being a Hun d*** I think he could do a job for us again. It's a yes from me!

I got speaking to someone at HT at the game today, who will remain nameless, and I believe this is in HMFC's hands to make the decision. He (Lafferty) has indicated he would like to come back and the decsion is up to HMFC. He also told me that in addition one player from each of the OF clubs will definitely be returning to HMFC next season.
