Watson, Barr, Higginbotham and Clarkson would do nicely.

Higginbotham back? Why?!

I really don't understand this "we must sniff around all former players" thing that's going on. These guys left for a reason. 99 out of 100 times they are returning because they are well past their best or have been sh1ter since leaving. But of the thousands of possible freebies out there we start dredging up the likes Barr and co.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

Kinda agree here. Barr showed he had zero ambition when he left us for Hearts (FFS!). Likewise Higgy isn't available free because he is the greatest thing ever. I do however consider Eremenko to be a better class of player, although he's getting on a bit.

If he's been worse since leaving us, then he must have been rank rotten, because for the majority of the time he was utter gash when he was with us

You don't lose the talent and skill over night. I'd like to think he never settled elsewhere or never fitted in at other Clubs. I just know he was good with us, granted after taking a while to settle, and would like to see him back with us. As for players returning for a second stint with us, add Crunchie, Mark Kerr, Mark Millar, Scott McKenzie, Yogi. Sign Higgy!

Higgy would be a good signing for this league.He has pace, skill to beat the kind of defenders in this league.He is also a real threat from free kicks.A decent signing for us.

Darren Barr would be again a good signing for this league,I must admit that I am biased in that he was my favourite player when he played for us.He gave everything in every game.

Clarkson is a goal threat.I would sign him if I was the manager.Maybe lucky that it is Housty that is.

Barr? Are you mad? We already have 2 smallish Centre backs on the books!

The only position we don't need filling is at Centre back, Muirhead, Vaulks, McCracken and Grant can play there.

I would take Eremenko, in this league you need a class act to unlock defences and get wins - see Latapy and Stainrod. Could Eremenko do that job, I would not blame Houston for taking that gamble.
I'm a bad man who doesn't waste time wondering what could've been when I am what could've been and what could not have been. I live on both sides of the fence. My grass is always green.

Apparently keeping tabs on Kevin Cuthbert if Macdonald leaves, i thought he had signed a new deal at Raith, their fans say he is rubbish.

I'd take Liam Craig back, adds experience and talks a lot on the park, can play wide midfield aswell. If he could recapture the form he showed at St. Johnstone even better.

He left Partick because of the money he was wanting. Moving back to England seems his only real option. No loss

Darren Barr, 'Superstar', join Dumbarton. Obviously promising to keep them up clinched the deal.

I'd have expected a "signings are imminent" page on the website by now.

Twitter linked us with Declan McManus, ex Aberdeen striker who scored 20+ goals for Morton last year. I thought he had already signed for an english team though.
