His name keeps getting bandied about,  the jolley connection could be why, we need to replace the experience we've lost so I think it'd be an ideal signing for us in that sense just like Welsh when he came though, very little gametime this season so I'd be worried about fitness

Far too many parallels to Welsh for me. Decent pedigree at youth level, carved out a decent career in the second tier but now in his mid-thirties and has barely played over the past couple of years.

Not for me.

Danny Collins was a model professional though I think the key is looking at how much they've played the season before, if you've only played a couple of games the entire season before like Jones and Welsh, it's gonna be far harder to get going again at that age than it will be for elliot Whitehouse I'd have thought

Always concerning when an older player hasn't played much the season before. Especially if it's a midfielder who needs to have some mobility, not like Welsh who could barely move about the pitch. I would steer clear of this one if it was me but I guess we'll see.

He won't come cheap, and do we really want to blow a decent portion of our budget on another midfielder in the same mold as Clifton and Hessenthaler?

He's a player that Jolley knows well and will know all about his fitness levels. He doesn't appear to have had any serious injury problems like some of the journeyman we've had. We need a bit of experience in the middle of the park to help our youngsters. Dropping down from the championship he will find the game is a lot slower than he is use to so should adapt well if he stays clear of injuries. Trust Jolleys judgement

Too old. We need young hungry up and coming players not those on their last footballing legs.

Let’s be honest we’ve got quite a few of the above. Nothing wrong with adding abit of experience alongside it.

34 isn’t what it used to be now with the modern game and all the sport science.
