Absolute breath of fresh air during his first loan spell....helped give us a fighting chance when we looked dead and buried. Especially remember him playing that last game at Burton with some sort of arm injury.

Second spell I’m sure he was coming back from an injury if I remember right? Wasn’t quite fit.

Since then he’s established himself as a very decent player at this level...what’s there not to like? Doubt we’d be able to get him, mind.

Think he'd be a good signing, was crying out for wide men last season. Could location play into our hands on this one? Hull lad isn't he?


Apparently hull are one of the teams interested in him!

Devitt has been excellent the last couple of years for Carlisle probably the best spell of his career.

He was running the game for us in the last game at Burton until a defender took him out. He played on with his arm in a sling but had to come off. Cost us the game IMHO. The defender only got a yellow, Devitt got a broken collarbone.

I appreciate there are a lot of fans on this board who like to instantly dismiss the idea of a former player coming back to play for us because, rightly or wrongly, we should just 'move on'.

But let's be objective about this. Let's, for argument's sake, remove the fact that he's played for us before.

Just look at his career stats. Look at what we were missing last season. Would he be a good signing? Absolutely.

Will it happen? Seems unlikely in my opinion but he might have ties to this area like Ben Davies. Who knows. All I know is that he's a very good (and proven) creative player at this level, and we're crying out for creative players.

More chance of us signing Belinda Carlisle than Jamie Devitt from Carlisle

He won't come here, he'll want paying a wage.

I remember presto's well



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”
