He's moved on and so should we. Thanks for the memories but a third spell would be a mistake for both parties.

Sounds like a re-run of comments from last time.

Until we can bring in players better than him, we're in no position to turn our noses up at a player of his talent.

Frankly if Tubbs comes back for a third time more fool him. Each time he erodes his achievements when he was great.

Best decline quietly being paid by someone else.

You make it sound as if he's camped outside the ground begging for an opportunity!

On what planet are we able to bring in players better, or even half as good as him, or rather as good as he was?

The reality is that we're highly unlikely to be able to attract and secure a player with his ability let alone his wage demands.

Even if we were, we need to look forward and not back. Instead of Tubbs we should be looking for the next Tubbs who maybe playing a league or 2 below, be 10 years younger and have a point to prove.

That player would relish the chance, be hungrier, cheaper and a potential financial lifeline in a season or two if it works out.

Far too many on here need to get their heads out of their backsides grasp reality and stop clinging to the past.

Would love to see him in a red shirt again, he will always score goals .Sorry to see him out of favour, as he was hitting the net for Portsmouth.
Bring him back ASAP.

Totally overlooking the fact that if we had held on to our better players, we probably couldn't have afforded a full team and may well have been the subject of a transfer embargo under the financial fair play regulations -- which could easily have left us in a far worse place than we are.
Apart from that, with hindsight it looks like Yeovil may have overreached, and look where they are currently.

If ambition means that we find ourselves in financial trouble, then no thanks. We have been there and done that. Yeovil did overstretch themselves as have Bolton. The fall is always harder when you spend money you don't have.

Can't believe some are so against a Tubbs return.

Finished as top scorer in this division, could possibly be a realistic option and I doubt we'd be able to do better if the opportunity became available.

Tubbs and McAllister, Tubbs and Barnett, Tubbs and Harrold?...

Absolutely, look forward, not back.

If we signed Tubbs now we'd be getting the Tubbs 2015 version, which would still be better than anything we have.

To dismiss Tubbs as an option because he used to play for Crawley is as silly as to sign him simply because he did.

I'm not against a Tubbs return myself.
I am against this club overreaching financially to sign him though.
I would rather us be a lower half league 2 side than a league 1 side that gets shafted by the bankers.
Yes to Tubbs, but not by putting us at risk.
