Ffs we were meant to be adding pace! Vastly overated by some on here and hasn't impressed me at all since he left.

Filed next to Campbell-Ryce in need to do better.

Because one player has had a bad second spell at the club mainly due to injury must mean any other player who comes back will be just as bad if not worse. : )

judgement preserved for me and others I imagine, but we shall have to see how Byrom gets on as the season goes on.

Keep positive we are due in for a exciting season, new management, 8 new signings and more to come, a north stand still under construction with a tractor on it what's there to be misreable about ? : )

FWIW, when Mansfield came to our place last season, remember saying on here that I thought he looked leaner and fitter than when he was with us.

Yes I’m sure he won’t start every game, but his and Timlin’s Experience in the midfield can only be a good thing for the likes of Ball, Ferry and McKee to learn from and take the pressure off them. Last season, Gorman and McKee had far too much pressure on them and it showed.

I think one improvement we will notice this season is the fitness levels,as from what I witnessed last season I felt we lacked the right fitness level and other teams looked far much quicker then us on and off the ball.

I'm not fussed if Byrom starts or not but either way he's defintley welcomed back here by me.

Whenever we bring back a former player there are generally two camps, those who are seemingly affronted that we can't move on and those who have the rose tinted specs on. Personally I think we should take each incident such as this on its individual merits. If the player (or member of staff) coming back improves the club then I'm all for it.

Byrom is a good technical player. He is more experienced than when he left but not over the hill at 31 years of age I'd hope. What he brings off the pitch is experience, a knowledge of the club, manager and what the manager wants to build. He will hopefully help to instil these values in his younger team mates as well.

I'm personally happy to see him back at the club. He adds depth to the squad in the centre of the park. Ball, McKee, Timlin and now Byrom is a good mix of youth and experience, something that Dino seems to be implementing throughout the playing staff.

Oh, and he was involved in plenty of scenes during his first spell here. So let's hope that he can be involved in some more this time around! Welcome back Joel.

Ok. Let's take away the rose-tinted nostalgia-specs and put the dislike deflector shields on ....

Last couple of outings I've seen from him, I'm not as excited as I feel I should be.

Good player in his day, great vision and delivery, not the best tackler maybe but a fans favourite.

But that was what 6 years ago. He's got older. Only played half of Mansfields games last couple of seasons, 1 goal in 2 seasons. Crowd pleasing signing but he's no Dean Parrett or Luke Amos.

I'll cheer and sing his name because of what he's done before, I remain to be convinced he can still do it. Hope I'm pleasantly surprised.

Yeah, don’t mind either way if he’s here or not, but since we could have had Amos back (but for the fact Dino doesn’t like loans), I’d rather have done that.

No-one should be guaranteed a start but I know what you mean.

My guess is he'll be used to shore up the midfield and try and retain possession for the last 20 minutes of games where we are being pressed or dropping deep to defend a lead/point.

I'd be surprised if he made many starts.

that would have been Drury followed by Boyd and Miller. Byrom not in top five. now a bench warmer as said below . The phrase "young legs around him" will be a bit hollow if he is surrounded by other 30 year olds.
He can do well but he DOES NOT have pace or bite as referred to by others. Clearly that is not why he has been brought in.
Dino is the manager and it is his vision. best of luck and looking forward to it.

He never had pace when he was here before but that has never been part of his game. His brain and strength of accurate passing went well above any lack of pace. For passing, he was better that Boyd, Drury and Miller.

Would Barrty Hayles and a mobility scooter be a cheaper equivalent?

Ask Richard Thom for other random, SBFC midfielders, who are still playing league football, there are probably lots .
Equally as good as Joel for all I know. As I said earlier i bow to Dino's vision.

I reckon he must have an eye on a coaching role - although I have no ITK about it. He obviously got on well with Dino, if he's re-signing him. I was quite pleased when he left as he really looked like a 1 in 10 type of luxury in the Conference. He somehow improved a bit after that, but i felt we definitely had the best of him.

Hopefully he proves me wrong.

When he first joined Boro I was unsure of him, but as time went on I felt he improved massively and became such an important part of our conference winning team and also played a big part in our league 2 promotion to league 1. That goal at Kidderminster probably the best moment of his career. Welcome back to Boro Joel Byrom here is to what we all hope is a very successful promotion season. Great work and all credit to Dino too.
