One year extension signed.

This is what should have happened with Shelvey and Ritchie also instead of the crazy 3 year contracts.

Or could have just let them go and bought replacements.

Yeah would have been the preferred option I agree, unfortunately under fat Mike he always takes the easy no sense option.

They probably didn't have that option in their contracts

tbf, even one year extensions could be justified if they were considered squad players, but we are clearly giving 3 year contracts on the basis they might just be good enough to get us just clear of the relegation spots for another season or two.

Don't think him & Clark have let us down when called upon.

Was a no brainer. I'm surprised the club has done it actually.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Got a bit of edge to his game as well, strikes me as captaincy material. Really liked his attitude from day one.

"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."
