Could it be a possibility to bring Jake back?

He is out of contract in the summer and is very unlikely to get another championship club but I think could still do a job in league 1. Could be a good replacement for Nelson when he leaves.

I would think that he would want to stay close to Sheffield if he can.
Also it's hardly ever a good idea to go back. Gilchrist was nowhere near the player he had been when he came back.

To be fair Gilly came back after 7 years away! Wright left just 3 years ago.

I'd have him back, he's only just turned 33 which really isn't that old for a centre half. He won two promotions with us & 5 years as captain, he would be a good experienced player to have around the club in general & is probably at least as good as what we've got now.

Would welcome him back but not sure he has played this season?

Probably end up signing for bloody Bradford!!!

We need a left sided CB. Might be a backward step and would he want to move back south? Probably not

I’d take him back, move Dickie to the rhs? Plus Kelleher and one more and we be sorted at CB

Would defiantly have him back, still think Appleton must regret letting go seemed a strange one at the time.

only time I saw him play was pre season. But based on Dickies performances I wouldn't want to see him starting every week next season.

Could be 3rd/4th choice. May force his way into the team if he has developed sufficiently. A season of regular League football will have helped his development.

I think Dickie still has the capacity to become something of a cult hero, if for nothing more than the fact that his name still elicits the odd juvenile chuckle.

(In all seriousness, I think he’s come on a lot this year and his recent performances, after a wobble around the new year, have been for the most part very assured)

I reckon Dickie would push on playing on the right side of defence. So as Nelson is undoubtedly moving on in the summer I hope we sign a left sided centre half to replace him.

I am surprised as to how much stick he seems to get.
As you say he had a wobble for a few games but has kept Eaves pretty quiet and has been a big reason why we have conceded so few recently.
He is excellent in the air and rarely loses a header.
Sure he can improve but he is still young for a CB
