Rumour has it that DC - Darius Charles is set to re-sign for the club as our new left back/emergency centre forward
Sorry I can't sign you because you being colourblind probably think we play in a green kit!

Wow. I'd literally forgotten Darius (the Scottish singer) had ever been a thing.
Apologies I’d mistakenly thought this was the off topic music thread...
It was my understanding that he preferred to play centre back so it would seem strange he would sign as a left back/striker when he doesn't like playing those positions.
As a left centre back of 3 I could see it.
Patthetic descicion really considering we could land someone who's got more pace and a younger age then Darius. On the coaching side of things nothing wrong with giving him a coaching role.

I wouldn't normally pull you up.
Chuck away over 350 appearances, 144 of those for us, and call it pathetic, but give him a job coaching where he has zero experience.........

Pay as you play would be the only contract I'd offer him. Decent enough squad player & defensive cover if he can stay fit.
Lovely fella, always seemed to have a good attitude and connection with the fans, but he's not going to improve us.
I'd be surprised if he came here. Reckon he'll get a Conference contract or thereabouts.
Regardless of his past time with Boro,we need someone surely who has more pace and much more quicker. Look at the issue we had with pace in the centre midfield with players who are over 31. So why have lack of pace at the left back position when theres far better options? Not disrepcting Darius at all but times have changed we gotta move forward from past players IMO.

Agree, he wouldnt be an asset at left back. I was staggered that you'd take him on as a coach without any evidence he can run a drill....?
I'd have him as a player before he was a coach.
Which probably means i wouldn't have him at all.
We keep throwing all these things in about Coaches, but as with Ronnie, none of them are qualified.
He was like Bambi on speed. But not as fast.
But I did like the fact not even he knew where he was running to let alone the opposition.

I thought so too. Like.. he was genuinely fast and powerful.
I wouldn't take him on the basis that he's very injury prone.
yes when he was a few years younger then he is now.

Cons: Probably past it
Pros: Is Darius Charles
Cons: Probably past it.
Cons: Is Darius Charles.
I mean, him being past it isn’t a problem. The fact that he was never good enough is.

That's just, like, your opinion, man.
Who do you think would be a decent left back for us ?

Heard a coaching role might be involved too
Double lolz. Didn’t Wallace say something about not always going back to old players?
I think he said he didnt want to sign any old black players...
