Pretty sure he would have relished the opportunity to resurrect his career back where it all began and I'm confident he will make an impact in league 2. Great signing for FGR but surely he would (and should) have come back to us.

He was a tad disappointing in his last loan with us.

I agree he wasn't at his best for whatever reason, but that was a couple of years ago when we we were an above average league 1 side, we are now in league 2 with a squad of players totally devoid of confidence, perhaps a player of his class/pedigree could help to ignite an improvement in our fortunes. I doubt if he is on a massive wage at FGR so surely he would have been within our financial reach.

Straightforward question, "Did we miss a trick here?"
Straightforward answer, "No."

Give me a choice of George Williams, Sow or Cisse and I know which one I would pick ;)

Fair comment AC if all 3 were ours, but they are not. Sow and Cisse are both already contracted for next season and I am hoping for a decent season from both. Williams on the other hand is not ours and is he so much better than Sow and Cisse to make it worth our while signing him? That is debatable, I just don't think he is and therefore it was not worth our taking (yet another) chance on Williams.

I wonder if any of you have changed your opinions after William's cameo performance today. ;)

He made a difference.

Not for me, he was very poor in the last loan and just made the bench for FGR. Saying that Mark Cooper must have seen something in him, but I would have preferred their No 10 or 20.
