Not sure people remember him ditching our offer for the fifers 

They made him a better offer, why would that be an issue now?

Tbf we only offered what he was worth....the pars topped it for not so value for money.

I didn't cry when he left and didn't fear him coming back to bite us.

His Brother would've been a top signing back then

I thought he looked best when behind the striker (s) than out wide. Nice touch but too slow at times to make the final ball. Should be absolutely fine in the seasides though

Must admit I don't get the negativity about him. I always rated the guy and if we had kept him I'm sure he would have been our most creative player last season. Let's face it, his only competition would have been Petravicius and he wasn't up to much.

Longridge was only with us for six months yet in that time he was voted players player of the year, finished up as joint top goalscorer and was top of the assists table. What more did we expect from him?

Agreed. Very pleased to see him back, for all the reasons you've highlighted BB, plus his link-up play. I think he would have made a significant contribution last season, working with Zak as he had done with Andy Nelson previously.  His goals compilation on Twitter is quality.

Yeah, whilst I agree I'm not sure he's the type of person I want at the club given how easily he jumped ship to our biggest rival. Saying that, I can't deny he gave me some of happy memories over the last couple of years.. Especially the 6-1 v Dundee Utd

Not disputing his credentials in the Navy blue whilst he was here, however; I am still disappointed with the circumstances in which he left us and who he left us for. .

I'm happy to have a player of his quality and goal scoring ability back. I was just highlighting the fact he ditched us for them and a little more money... Which disappointed me and  now he's come running back.

If its the choice of having a job and not having a job i think the circumstances are justified, not to mention everyman has their own price of what they think they are worth and if someone offered you more money even if it was a rival company then i dont think you would be too bothered.

Longridge should be a good signing, we were crying out for width at the weekend and that's something he should be able to offer.

I have to say, I always liked him better up top, although we didnt have room for wingers when he was here. He was murder in the deeper role he got shoehorned into. Get him wide or up top.

That's the thing, I don't think he offers much as a winger, doesn't have the pace. I would have preferred a LWB.

I have to say I liked him on the wing, he isn't the fastest but he can beat a man, him and someone else playing wide and high on the other side of the park should give us a team that can actually go past players and provide good delivery leaving the full backs to sit a little deeper. I would have us basically playing a 2-4-4 when we were in possession.

I totally agree. It just hurts a little more when it's a rival and probably pennies more.

Our offer to him was really poor, especially when compared to what we were giving young players coming up from England. Considering how influential he had been since signing it’s no surprise he was able to get a far better deal elsewhere...although he didn’t have to choose that lot.

At the end of the day he's probably no different from the majority of players; he'll play for the club that offers him the most cash, or the longest deal, or perhaps even the one where he feels most wanted. In LLs case there was may have been a lure in playing with his brother too. 

I think it's safe to assume that Paul Hartley wasn't very good at making people feel wanted, so I wouldn't hold Longridge's previous departure against him.
