I have read this entire thread and in my head I was reading 'David Templeton' and looking with much confusion. Don't think I slept well last night, brain is all over the place. 

 

Yes to Sam! Still only a bairn and not tainted in the Scottish leagues. Worth a punt.

He’s coming back to the UK for personal/family reasons so with that in mind you’d assume he wants to be as close to home as possible.

 

Signing for an English club doesn’t make much sense.....unless it’s Carlisle.

Same. I look in and think, not another ex-player signing thread, but as others have said he’s a good age and could do well.

Banderson reporting he has left for family reasons and will be back in UK this weekend. He reports interest from Bristol Rovers, but says others are interested to. I'd take him back in a heartbeat.

Type of player we needed last season. He'll run at players and get stuck in.

Mulraney was meant to be that player but had the heart of a mouse.

Big yes from me. He was fantastic on his day. When was the last time we had a winger that could beat a man?

It’s like the Blues Brothers “we’re getting the band back together” 😃 

 

I suppose we could never have got back to the original blues.  Are we going to get the 80s guys in suits doing a OK rip off, or will it be a modern rip off with autotune, a bit of rap thrown in, and a bunch of annoying square wave noises that lead to a terrible crescendo?

I was a fan of Sam's previously - although he was thrown in and depended on a bit too much for someone his age.

Was disapointed when he left.

 

Would be happy for him to return.

See now you’ve mentioned Mulraney....I’d take Sam back yesterday.  It’s shows how low our standards stooped. 
 

Sam might just like playing off our experience we have upfront just now.

When a proven player like Nicholson becomes available you can't not consider taking them on. 

 

 

Exactly. We've really lacked good wide players in these doldrums years.

Hope so 🤞🏻 But probably end up at the sheep

 

I was thinking about who he would come back to Scotland to play for. Doubt the old squirm would fancy him, he'd laugh if Hibs went in for him and clubs like St Johnstone, Ross County, St Mirren etc.. wouldn't be able to afford him. That only leaves Aberdeen, Dundee Utd or Hearts. Of the three, I reckon he'd probably sign for Aberdeen as well. Dundee Utd a possibility if they could put a wage together for him and although I reckon he'd consider Hearts, I think that being back in the Championship would make him think twice. His agent would more than likely tout his name down south. I could see him playing in the Championship with one of the bigger clubs in that league like a Notts Forrest or whoever. I'd doubt we'd see him back in a Hearts top anytime soon. He'll be looking for big bucks at this stage of his career. Should even be in and around the Scotland squad. Appears to be a forgotten man with being in America.

Is this another thread about an ex-player coming back? 

 

He will not sign for us, he will end up in England.

Would absolutely have him back, a front 4 of Boyce, Naismith, Walker and Nicholson would be class!

How well did Sam do in the states? Always preferred him over Walker, when he was on his game he was untouchable. And a die hard jambo as well who hates the hubs.

Should just resign the championship team and be done with it eh? 

No need for scouts we no all the players already happy days

Not one bit of ambition with all the names of ex players

I'd be less worried about having Sam than some of the players we currently have.  Think about it.  He will also be much improved fitness and technically.  Major League isn't as bad as some make out.

you don't do much reading do you?

It takes less than one minute to see that it was for family reasons he left Rapids. His boss even said he was sad to see him go. Do try harder

In the likely event of us playing in the championship there is no need to do a Rangers and overspend to win a division we should stroll easily.

 

We can be as ambitious as we like the following season.

I'd be chuffed if this happens. Laddies a match winner and has the ability to create or score from nothing. Need more of his type in the team. I'd imagine he's a better player now too.

Now let’s wait a minute here. Ok Sam did alright when he was here, do we know if he has improved as a player, has he any injuries that will come to light after a couple of games and he goes on the injured list for 6 months. All this rush to sign Sam is way over the top. I’d sign him as a trialIt’s after a thorough medical because we have a bad habit of signing players who breakdown after a short period.

I do feel like we are the Gorgie time machine also. Folk are obsessed generally with bringing player's back.

 

However I feel this might be a good signing at this time.

 

He's a known quantity both on and off the field and it removes our inept scouting team from the equation.

That’s the problem, watching highlights is suicidal when looking to sign a player. We have signed too many players by not doing the work needed like scouting the player playing. An agent phone a manager, tells the manager that this guy is magic, shows the manager the player on Google & You Tube, manager meets player and agrees 3 year deal. End result disaster. Even Rudi played as a trial it’s against Middlesbrough & Hull City. Let’s do things the right way as too much money has been flushed down the toilet on crap.

He’s not getting ‘released’, it’s mutual to return home for family reasons.
