Fabulous news about Shaun.
Player of the year for me (although not a lot of competition!) so JB saying hes gonna be here next year is the best Cobbs news Ive heard for some time.
Impressive stat about his tackling percentage as well - considering were 21st in the league!

Very happy with this, might have been a chance to see the club be proactive and maybe offer him something longer than just the option year though.

Isn't that because his second touch is normally a tackle?  Tongue Cool

Brilliant news! Shaun is one of our most important players - perhaps only behind Lloyd Jones who has been a level above the rest since Brady started in my opinion.

Lets hope that we have similar options in the contracts for Lloyd and Ryan Watson. Id also hope that we are trying to tie Chuck to a professional deal. His talent merits a solid first team salary and that coupled with regular starting game time next season could secure his future here

This. L Jones is the next priority IMO. The defensive unit of Horsfall and Jones with McWilliams in front of them gives us an excellent spine.

Why do we hardly ever have options in the clubs favour, L Jones a prime example...

He was without a club, we give him a short term deal, surely if he does well we should have made sure we get first dibs...Peterborough do it successfully all the bloomin time!

Still, least we've got BAS & Smith for another season  Roll Eyes

Do you know we havent?
I 'm clearly in a cynical mood this morning... I hope this is an honest statement but could also be the club warning interested clubs he wont be cheap and pushing the price up.

I guess its down to players whether they allow clubs to put contract extensions in the clubs favour. Its clearly not good for the player, if theyre playing well and have a chance to get a better deal elsewhere then the club extends the deal if they are playing poorly they get released. Clubs who pay top dollar in fees and wages like Manchester United and by league 1 standards Peterborough I guess have more bargaining power.

Clubs can approach players over 24 and over (could be 25, don't hold me to that) as soon as they enter the final month of their current contract. If they agree a new contract with them, the player will move on at the end of their current deal, and no fee is required to be paid.

Put simply, if we don't have an extension clause and bigger clubs come calling, it will be our own fault for not extending his deal before the final month of his deal. His agent, who the clubs will approach him through, certainly won't hold the clubs bluff about whether or not there is a clause - they will tell the club he is free to move, if that is the case.

For once it would be nice for the club to be proactive in protecting its assets. In Lloyd Jones, Horsfall, McWilliams, Watson, and arguably a couple of others, we have the basis of a really good League Two side in my opinion. I really hope that as soon as our fate for this season is sealed, the manager outcome (contract signed, done) is made within one week, no more! Then get L. Jones, McWilliams and Watson all signed up. Yes they might want a sizeable pay increase but they have earned it and proved that they are capable of thriving in League One and we could certainly rely of them to perform strongly next year. If KT lets things drag on and important players go, well can anyone say he isn't to blame if we start next season poorly? And how many of recent years have we started well? I'd say it's more frequent that we start badly?

Agreed in principle, but it all depends on those players agreeing to sign the contract extension.
The player has the power, not the club.

It would be nice though for the club with players like L Jones & Watson who have been some of our better players to come out and say because of the level of performance we have offered them contract extensions now. If they dont sign they dont sign but just show you are being proactive. The uncertainty about the manager probably puts a spanner in it this time but our contract extensions always seem a bit shambolic and left to the very last minute.

Exactly. Both seem to be enjoying their football under Brady. And at the end of the day money talks - if we offer them 30-40% increases on what they currently earn, I can't see them turning it down.

Smaller, high quality squads are the answer. Depth can come from the youth team and loans!

not sure any player this year has earned themselves a pay increase at all - let alone one as ridiculous as suggested here.

madness.
