If overturned, I wonder If he'll go back to the game.

 It amazes me how some folk on twitter are saying get back for the play offs....are they for real, he'd need the whole summer to get fit and conditioned for football, let alone having the same touch as he had before.

If Evans is cleared we should give him some consideration for next season, if only because even now we still have never adequately replaced him.

Let's move on FFS.

Maybe it's because we're so shite but there's been an obsession amongst Blades with past players for decades.  Started with Deane and then we were obsessed with Brown returning, then Walker, then Harry and of course Evans. 

There are plenty of good new players out there who could be playing for us...  Forget the past. It's gone. Bringing back previously sold favourites seldom works and its just a way of the board placating the fans instead of having vision and a pair of bollocks.

Understood Roma, the point I was making is, the fact that Evans even looks an appealing prospect at all just shows how we haven't replaced him since he was banged up, and if you're right that there are all these great players out there in the market then it just backs up the point. Ched Evans should be bottom of the pile, but if 100 players that we would be interested in taking all put their CVs in today, I guarantee you they would be "too expensive", or "attracted by bigger clubs" or "we just couldn't get them over the line" and then, from the dross that would be left, Evans would be close to the top of that list.

btw I'd have Deane back now, and he's 48!  :whi

Deane was ok in his second spell with us alongside Fjortoft, pity the board sold them both the same day from under our noses that then ultimately cost us in the Play offs )O(

Ahh some things never change do they :whi
