    You're being too nice with that, frankly.

    I think you're being quite harsh on Colback in terms of his first stint here.

    Since then, injury appears to have taken its toll, and from my observation the play largely looks to pass him by much of the time.

    No I completely agree. He was more than decent in his first stint.

    Not sure if it's his injury, sitting in the stands at Newcastle for so long or whether he's just lost his desire after having to drop down a level.

    Possibly so. He also incurred that nasty ankle-ligaments injury after only a few games following his return last year.

    He certainly hasn't been the same player since.

    Probably a combination of all of it. He's 33, not played for a year before rejoining us, spent most of last year injured or out of the team, he's getting older anyway... I think some of the season he was back with the barcodes he had an injury as well.

    Plus he was playing with Geddy- spraying balls around left, right and centre in his first stint.....and now his partner in crime is Mr Yates

    He was another who was nowhere near as good 2nd time round (if you count the loan being permanent as 1st and Colback's 2 loans as 1).

    Sure thing, he could do a lot of amazing things with a ball but he could also misfire at a lot of trivial stuff as well, Not to mention the number of times he took a long range shot into the stands when there was a better option tactically.

    I guess you can't compare stats of a low-risk passer like Colback or Yates who is probably more likely to pass to a teammate but over 5 yards than someone who attempts to be more proactive and risky like Guedioura or Carvalho.

    We desperately need a Geddy MK1 type player.

    Desperately.

    Hoping Garner or the new Paraguayan chap can be that man.
