What is fans fascination in wanting to bring back rubbish players we've released and gone on to do nothing!!!

Totally understand wanting to bring back our good players (McCall, Windass) but not players like Syers or Nicky Law.. Washed up and not good enough for where we want to be

Syers was a poor mans version of Gary Jones. Certainly not good enough
Slightly harsh.

1. They are nothing like each other in terms of playing style
2. Syers was a key part of a promotion winning squad to the championship and played there - not something GJ can say.

All true but still doesn't alter the fact Parky didn't make much effort to keep him and has a really bad injury record

Parky didn't rate him then. So he is hardly going to sign him now
This.

We all saw what Parkinson expects in a central midfield pairing in Evans/Cullen, and that's discipline, defensive positioning, ball retention, and anything on top is a bonus.

That's basically the opposite of what Syers is/was so can't see even a fleeting interest from PP to be honest.

Singed for Guiseley!
I went to Guiseley last night to watch them play Wrexham.
Syers made his debut, he played around an hour mark, he barely got a kick of the ball, Wrexham's fast midfield marshalled by Wayne Rooney's brother kept the ball moving, Syers looked lost.

A kid I mentioned before called Jordan Preston came on for the last 25mins for Guiseley, he's 20years old, just released by Blackburn's youth academy after being on loan at Ayr Utd (scoring 18 in 40apps), they wanted him but found Ayr too far away.
He's far from the finished article, however. he's got great movement, a good touch and a footballing brain. If he improves as expected this kid could make it at much higher level, it would be prudent for City to keep an eye on his progress.
