He was probabably the best player on the pitch when we played down at Aldershot at the beginning of the season.

He completely changed the game when they bought him on. He was also the stand out player when we played them at home last year as well.

I am well pleased to have him back. A performer of genuine quality. Hopefully we'll actually use him in the middle this time.

I'm not sure how I feel about this signing, firstly it is rather odd we seem to be re-signing players from a few years back, I can't quite get my head around it. With Guttridge I think you only have to read Aldershot fans views on him leaving to see that he is still a decent player for this level so on that basis he has to be a decent addition I guess. IF he stays injury free then he will do well for us, where he fits into the team? I have no idea, that is down to AB of course. As for his supposed off field antics, I personally don't care what the players do in their spare time, provided it is all legal antics of course, if they choose to drink and smoke then so be it as long as they still perform on the pitch then who cares?! Footballers are humans aswell, yes they are in the limelight as such but you'll be surprised how many footballers do smoke, crazy in this day and age of fitness regimes/dieticians etc I know. I couldn't care if it turns out Guttridge is a massive tw@t but if he is the man to spark our revival then I and I'm sure the rest of the supporters will be over the moon.

I agree with you, I was merely making a passing comment, I'm sure AB will keep him in line anyway.

Welcome back Gutts. Wish he had never left, quality player at this level and likely to chip in with a few goals along the way. Just what we need.

Just a word on Gutts and the notion he is injury prone... he's had 80 games for Aldershot in just a season and a half. That's a huge appearance total, not sure any of the current Cobblers squad could match that.

Would seem to suggest that whatever problems he had, he didn't take them to Aldershot. He should hit the ground running, and finally we have a signing who is currently fit and happy at rejoining. Exactly what we need!

Now for that elusive centre back, in the same mould (appearance-wise I mean, not necessarily a former player though haha!) Smiley

That is some stat, good work, Wikipedia? Wink Does put to bed the notion that he is struggling with injury. The worrying thing still has to be lots of players tend to be injured while with us!

Mixed reaction from me, but if he brings passion and desire for the team - then I'm on board. Welcome back Luke.

Just in case Gutts happens to stumble across this...the messageboard filters the word c.racking for some reason- ClaretAndWhite is not saying he thinks you're s.hit! Grin

.... and Harding.  Gutts is a good player but i'm not sure he's the right player, depends who else is due to come in.

At least with Guttridge we should have someone who can get a corner past the first defender.

This is the equivalent of playing Football Manager, doing shit and so just reloading an old save game from ages ago. If this fails, I imagine we'll just turn it off and on again.

Sorry about this I know im in a minority but I always found him rather moody,and he ( to me) always seemed to need too much time on the ball.Can't argue about his performance against us, then again everyone seems to play well against us.Having said that he's our player so i'll back him all the way.Mr Betamax are you saying the quality of Hardings corners against Barnet were not up to standard? Remember Bayos goal!

What about getting someone to hack the players' abilities, and turn them all into Prem players overnight?

I think the main problem was that Calderwood used to play him as a right winger and it was so obvious he didn't want to be there. The shots seemed to play him just behind the front man in a more central role and he bossed the games.

I think that's over-egging it a bit.  Aldershot haven't won in six, they haven't even scored in six, and Guttridge has played in all of them.  I don't see this as the ball-winning midfield signing that everyone on here has been clamouring for.  The more I reflect on AB's signings even without Doig, the more I fear we are going to drop.
