If we sign any kind of winger, I would be relieved as Jolley would be moving away from the 3-5-2 system that pretty much ended any chance creation. Deviit is in his prime and would be a great signing.

You wouldn't think that 'Ull would be interested unless their budget is even lower than you would expect. Devitt Mk. I was very good for us and, as others have mentioned, he was one of the few bright sparks from the relegation season - he tried to play on at Burton when clearly injured and obviously gave a toss unlike most of the wasters from that squad who we've heard about in recent weeks.

His second spell was very disappointing for one reason or another, but he's obviously found his feet at Carlisle. Providing he could fit in to our formation, he would be a good signing. I don't think I'd be breaking the bank for him, mind. Question is, where would he play? If we're going to be playing 3-5-2, I'm not sure I'd see him as somebody to play in a central three. Perhaps he could do the job though.

Would gladly have him back.  Unlikely in my opinion as I think better clubs with better budgets will be in for him.

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

His return in 2013 was about as excited as I’ve been about a signing in a long time; sadly it didn’t quite live up to expectations. I don’t remember it being a disaster by any means though, he just wasn’t at the level he’d been at during his initial spell and I don’t think he was 100% fit.

Thinking back to his first spell almost 10 years ago now, it’s a bit of a surprise that he’s failed to carve out a career above League Two level. There’s no doubt he has some genuine quality, and personally I’d have him back in a heartbeat.

However, if he’s left Carlisle after winning their player of the year award then presumably he’s done so on the basis of opportunities at clubs loftier than Grimsby Town at the present time.

I respect the opinions of others on here who say they wouldn’t be fussed about Devitt, but then I do question the calibre of player they realistically expect us to sign. Short of a serious increase in budget, I’m sadly expecting the bulk new arrivals to well below his level.

Didn't he have or was recovering from glandular fever in his second spell.
Quite a debilitating illness

I Fuking hope not.

He’s just invited me to a pool party.  😓 😮  😉


I’ve just split up with my Irish girlfriend due to her broad accent and me getting a new car.

It all went wrong when she asked me to take her in the Yarris !!!

I'm sure that I recall that he was unhappy being far away from Ull, although that might have been when he was younger. I was surprised when he signed for Carlisle because of that memory.

It's surprising how far footballers from Ull have gone though, I am assuming Snerle who played for Denmark women against England, is from there?
