I'll say it again mate - 26 games is a great return for a player who is pushing 31 and has his past. When deeming someone as class, you consider all factors, including injury past.  CLASS.

We'll see games where he wasn't ready or tired, but the games like the Derby win show he's the player we need to drive us with GGH/Bain/Stewart/McPake.

ETA - in his 12 season career, his 26 games is the 5th highest he's recorded.

What a player. Hopefully get more games this season. Last season we got top six. We get more games out of him, we'll be pushing for Europe! Holt, the spanierd and ferry all did well tonight too. The past two friendlys show Ferry is a decent player, on performance, he starts at killie for me. His interchanges with KT in the past two games has been really decent.

Those 26 games got us top 6. Was banging my head off a wall all last season trying to explain that to some. The guys priceless to us.

Exactly this.  Might be lucky to get 25 games out of him (which is probably his average over the last 8 or 9 years) but when he's on his game he is a joy to watch.  Even when he is indifferent he does things now and again that are just class.  The performance in the last Dens derby was top drawer and not just because we won.  People talk about PH not getting the importance of the derbies but Thomson did in that game.  I said to my mates before the game that Thomson needed to impose himself on the game as early as possible.  Well he did, 3 seconds into it when he clattered Cifci who could do nothing but moan to the ref.  After that, the midfield was Thomson's.  Just an immense performance.  Looking for a couple more like that this season.

Honestly. I give him so much stick, but the man is honestly an amazing player. Great leader. Its actually gutting him not being able to play.

And please don't say class if fit. A player is either class and fit or injuried and useless.

But he really commands games. We need him.

Welcome to the KT fan club mate. He's one of those players that once you see what he's about, you start to appreciate what he brings to the table. He was brilliant for us tonight in what was a strange and drawn out game (I thought). If we can get half a season out of him playing like he did tonight we'll be doing fine.

Guys like Cammy and CW will be influenced by KT as one of the best SPL players. Can't believe he goes in so hard on tackles with the injuries he's had over the years. One of the best players ever to wear dark blue.

No denying he's a very good player but you're getting a bit carried away there. Wouldn't get near my top ten Dees.

At 31 he should be in his prime. 26 games is a decent return for someone of his injury record.
