I know naismith coming back divides bears opinions but with pena gone using his freed up wages on naismith a guy we know would do a job for us should be a no brainer. Especially when he seems desperate to come back but we instead of going for someone who we know is good enough and would score a barrel load we are looking at wee boys from Fleetwood and non league down south. Unbelievable

Agree5 Disagree3

Why waste money on players like Naismith who would have no sell on value when that money could be used to buy young talent from the likes of Fleetwood Town who we could develop and sell on for a decent profit? Honestly can't understand why some on here cream themselves over players who have had their time and their best days are well and truly behind them. Thankfully yous are not running the club as we would be in a much bigger mess than what we are in just now!

i have concerns about his form and fitness but like you say mate no risk at all if he intends to play for free. has a decent level of experience to be good in the dressing room too. if it doesn't work out bin him in the summer and no lose at all. i'd like him back

Think Naismith would be great playing in behind moralos

I would say we'd be in even more a mess if you were running the club calvin55. Development squads don't win major trophies as you need a certain amount of experienced pros in order to develop younger players. The Fleetwood lad could end up being a Dembele or a Dodoo, whereas we know what we're getting with Naismith.

11 Jan 2018 22:21:07
Of course Naismith is desperate to come back. Why isn't any of the bottom sides in English premier league, or the decent sides in championship after him? He can't get a look in, at a poor Norwich side. Can't afford anymore hanger-ons.

11 Jan 2018 22:27:59
That's right, we would be getting an injury prone player who hasn't been in form for 2 years!

11 Jan 2018 22:36:21
Anybody who doesn't think Naismith would be a good signing either knows nothing about football or has a wee childish grudge. He's a smashing football player with a great attitude. And spare me the "he done the dirty on us crap".

11 Jan 2018 22:46:31
No we don't know what we are getting with Naismith. Yes he was a decent player for us 8 years ago! He is 32 this year and like I said has no sell on value which is no use to the club in the long term. We need to able to sell players on for a profit so we can eventually stop getting on soft loans. What is it you don't understand about we have little funds and what we do have has to be spent wisely?

11 Jan 2018 23:39:57
Calvin55 gets it

11 Jan 2018 23:41:23
Fully aware of his injury history but when fit Naismith would definitely score goals in Scotland so we do know what we'd be getting. He would be on loan initially offering to play for next to nothing, in hope of winning a pay as you play contract so wouldn't be a substantial outlay. Not every player we sign has to have sell on profit because as I have said we would end up with a development squad! Young players don't develop by getting humped every week they learn from older pros how to react in certain situations. For example Bruno's performances may have been below par but if he's improved all of the young defenders then he would still represent value. We do need to speculate on young players like Cole but the balance has to be right.

If he is half as good as his dad we would be on to a winner . Andy Cole

12 Jan 2018 01:41:24
Totally agree . didn’t like the way he left us but I didn’t like the way kenny miller signed for them

Will he make our team better? . I think so anyway

I think if he goes to hearts he will do well and we will regret not signing him

Thoughts bears?

12 Jan 2018 07:48:08
Norwich are going to pay his FULL wages till the summer? Eh? They spent £8m on him in 2016 and is one of they're highest earners but because he wants to come back up to Scotland they'll do that?
IF we didn't have so many hangers-on, many on big wages Naismith might well be worth a punt. There's no way he'd play for nothing, that's just him sucking up to the fans. Sure Naismith could handle Scottish football, skill wise but what about physically?
Boy's like Hyndman on loan are better bets just now

12 Jan 2018 08:38:30
Who said anything about development squads? We need young players who we can bring on and make a profit on when we move them on. I'm not talking about 16, 17 year olds. I mean players who are in early 20s i. e Van Dijk's, Forter's, Dembele examples where we can also insert decent sell on clauses to ensure we are better off financially. Signing players like Naismith, Lafferty, Davis etc will not achieve this for us as they are past it now and won't have any sell on value. All we will do is waste what little funds we have and when these golden oldies leave after a year or two we will be back to square one still having little funds and getting by on soft loans because we can't get a transfer fee for our players. Also do you seriously think Naismith will win us the title? I understand the want for a quick fix but after our troubles its a long road and we are only at the beginning of that long road as step 1 was getting back to the top league. We have more money going out than what we have coming in and needless to say that has to change!

Last post on this one. I hear what your saying but a squad of guys in their early 20's is still a development squad. You still need experienced players in order to develop them. Given that we can now do a fresh share issue and we've got our retail profits back, we won't need to survive on soft loans. We spent £8-10m in the summer if we spend that again except wiser then we won't be far away.

Keep Believing

calvin55 - don't you want success in the near future? Rattling on about sell on money etc is a waste of time. Everyone knows Rangers are not great financially so they know they only need to offer £1m for a £3/4m player and we will accept therefore get proven players in that know the game and let's start winning trophies, forget about your football manager building a team nonsense!

12 Jan 2018 15:26:37
I think it clear from my posts what I think is the best way of getting success in the future, its not nonsense its commonsense and the best way forward in the long term. You can have experienced players at 27/ 28 that will have a sell on value.
