Probably going to get a bit of stick with this but I got stick at the time for saying it.

When Steven Davis was being touted for a return I said time and time again he wasn’t the answer.
Now I know it’s still early days and he’s not really match fit so I’m willing to give him time.
However watching him the past few games where (lets be honest) he not been great and been subbed I still can’t see what he is bringing the team that we don’t already have.
In my opinion, he’s is no better that Arfield who arguably plays the same role. I would drop Jack and McCrorie is growing in to the player Gerrard was. Again I wouldn’t drop Kent or Candeias (both are essential to our system and on great form) .
I really really hope SG doesn’t start to tinker with the shape just to shoe horn Davis in. I have no doubt he still has quality, but so do the others in the team just now and we can’t all harp back to “but it’s Davis”. The Davis we all fell in love with was 6 years younger and fitter.

Wouldn’t drop Jack***.

Midfield trio has to be Jack, McCrorie &Arfield. Hopefully Davis will get sharpness back and provide competition but based on 3 games played he is way short and his inclusion actually weakenes the team.

04 Feb 2019 18:27:57
I agree with bankie re best three at present, butwe need a squad of quality going forward, Davis gives that.

04 Feb 2019 19:22:28
I wasn’t sure about bringing Davis back either and I am still not convinced to be honest. I would rather our midfield 3 remain Jack, Arfield and McCrorie!

04 Feb 2019 19:59:03
Glad I'm not the only one to see this and think the same. Davis slows us down when he plays, the system we play to shoehorn him and Defoe in doesn't work. Should stick with the tried and tested against Aberdeen.

04 Feb 2019 20:35:24
Yeah guys, Davis is not fit and needs game time and it’s definitely showing. It shows you if your not up to speed your not the same player but give him a little time and he will come good 🇬🇧.

04 Feb 2019 20:50:56
Sad to say but Davis is done and should never have been brought back. Too old and hardly played all season. Pointless signing.

04 Feb 2019 20:59:11
Davis is class - only played a handful of games and will take a month or so to get up to speed. Manager is using him wisely - isn’t it refreshing we have a squad were we can have this debate. Will soon have Dorrans to add to this 👌🏻 - Davis arfield dorrans that’s a English premiership midfield!

I get the Defoe signing, he is genuine quality and will push Morelos all day for a start. 2 different types of player. Defoe is a predator while Morelos is a bully. both quilt and both will score goals.
Back to my original point though, Davis isn’t the Davis was all remember and he’s just not the box to box CM we remember.
Arfield, McCrorie and Jack all day for me.

@Gers09

and Murphy.

04 Feb 2019 21:25:02
He’s played 3 games 🤯 . He’s a more experienced and all midfielders drop as they get older. He’s there for the games when we need someone to hold the ball. Bottom line - does he improve our squad or should we have kept rossiter.

04 Feb 2019 21:46:37
Davis does slow the play up, as bankie said mccrorie jack and arfield are the best mid combination we have👍.

04 Feb 2019 23:09:08
I'm going to wade in here with my opinion. Agreed he hasn't shown much so far but the one thing I have seen and been impressed with is his range of passing. Don't know if he can hit the heights again but he has something the rest don't in his passing ability. Perhaps he is too slow now and isn't worth it, time will tell. Willing to give him a bit more time though.

05 Feb 2019 00:36:22
needs a few games and not too shabby as cover if injuries happen.

04 Feb 2019 23:36:43
Wouldn't ditch Jack but think we need to give Davis and defoe time to get really match git.

05 Feb 2019 07:42:55
It's still way to early to judge these guys but I feel it's due to the over excitement/ hype of EPL experience, thinking they should come up here and dominate when let's face it their best days are behind them. It certainly doesn't help Burke and Weah have come out flying, especially young Weah he looks the part with scary pace, but I'm hoping they're sprinters and don't last the race like lots of young inexperienced players while our old pros just need a little time to get up to proper match pace and kick on.

05 Feb 2019 09:12:04
we can't judge davis yet you don't lose your ability overnight he just needs game time and we have to remember he hasn't featured much in the last year he will definentely improve the side but give the guy a chance.
