Stockport fan on Howard -

Howard at a push just because of his goal record but I never saw him beat a man all season

Back at somewhere like Ashton Utd would be about right for Iain. Great lad, but never Conference North level. It worked out OK last time for us, but he was playing with some decent players who created so much space for him like Sarce etc.

He was our top scorer though don't forget (and with a strike rate many a forward would envy), not bad for a midfielder...

I think Iain's legacy has been somewhat ruined by a certain poster going on about him all the time, shame, a good player and a grafter.

Nobody had suggested bringing him back when you commented. Don't think there's anything wrong with taking an interest in former players.

Agree

Personally I think a pinned former players discussion thread could be started and kept going, a little like the development squad thread instead of random new threads popping up all of the time.

At best he would be a benchwarmer who could come on late in games to have an impact against tired defenders. Lets get the starting XI sorted first tho.

Use him as a reverse sub. Play him for the first 10 minutes to show the current bunch of lazy s**ts what work rate and commitment are.

Yes, that would be awful wouldnt it?

imagine a much loved figure who delivered great success and gave his all to Chester FC being undermined and disrespected. Awful.

True in a way, no one is saying he is the greatest player ever to don the Chester shirt and was never a conference prem standard player, but I would rather have kept him over most of the SH*TE that we signed in the summer. Always guaranteed 110% from the lad.

If "one foot" Howard comes back then this fan wont be attending any games at the Exacta......never rated him and never will, got speed and thats it, wont use his right foot when he should, spends too much time trying to get the ball on his left foot...... sorry but no, forget him and move on......
