Seems like there’s more news to come…
Gape and Wing news too?
Would seem odd if we announced them all at 8pm on a Wednesday!
Great news my player of the season last year - vital goals, vital blocks and provided assurance when Forino first came onto the scene
Gape confirmed too.
Good news. It would have been a shock to lose JJ.
Also pleased for Dom. Turn of the year I would have said his time was up. He’s showed just what a great asset he is and became a fantastic pairing with Scowen.
One year for JJ, would imagine two years for Dom?
Now do Wing 🤞
That’s been a good 20 minutes
This has turned into a great transfer window.
Grateful, but what an odd time to release the news!
Following our recent odd trend of not actually confirming the contract length?
Ok. Quick question about the app. I get an alert. I click on it. It takes me to a story about Anthony Stewart leaving. The app preview suggests there is more to read but nothing. Anyone else ?
Same here, notification, but no article.
Also two for Wing, maybe even three?
Had to check his age, only turns 27 tomorrow. Nice birthday present! Though you suspect this has been done for weeks.
Checking Wing's wiki page, he's apparently related to this guy.
Maybe he can put a word in and get a year's loan on the go 😉
Do we think Rob got on the phone and ‘suggested’ some ,maybe a hat trick, of positive news was needed to dampen the storm of disquiet re Tools?
Yup, maybe they have done it that way just to encourage people to get the app, it seems they broke the news on that before Twitter.
I know there are platforms whereby you can update all your social media simultaneously so I guess it’s a choice to do it this way.
"Pete, the gasroom is going mad, release the contract news post haste"
Looks to me like they were waiting for all three to be signed and then release one article rather than three separate ones
Either that or awaiting the contract rebels decisions to be made. Maybe Stewart's decision was only made a few days ago, as Wing himself had leaked he'd signed weeks ago I believe.
Super happy with that! JJ is a legend... Set piece wizard. Gape came into his own at the end of the season and rightfully got a new contract offer.... But I'm actually most excited about wing. He oozes class and will be one to watch next season.
Good news at last!!
Excellent to see them all back im sure they will all play a big part in our push for promotion.
I do find it odd that we’ve seemingly had at least one of the contract sorted (in wings) weeks ago but it’s only now they are announcing it. They pushed out the Vokes extension pretty quickly but with the delay in others made it seem (to me at least) like they weren’t simple decisions for the players in question.
No matter - I think I am pleased to be proved wrong with JJ in particular, I had convinced myself he’d hang up his boots. I’m also shocked it’s going to be 9 years he’s with us.
All excellent players capable of pushing right at the top of this league. The squad needs strengthening but not too much.
