After seeing all the lads after the Wembley win I find it difficult to understand why anyone would not remain to be apart of something maybe even bigger! I hope all the lads sign!

Its a short career so sadly for most(not all) it will be about what money and security can they get

Probably a Wigan Casino reunion day.

That might go over some people's heads m8; not mine though. Long time again but remember going when I was a wee lad.

He broke into the team under Bruno didn't he? Played well that season I thought (unless I've completely misremembered again!)

Edit: I have completely misremembered again. I'm going to have to see my quack as this is getting more and more frequent!

What is????

If a National league side came in for Gibbo doubled his wages and put him on a 3 year deal he would be off, that's the name of the game all pro's play for the money.

Geosname said it right:

“the only people you can rely on are the fans, the rest are just passing through.”

I would count Carol as a fan before anyone gets hrjskwmndndnmamfntnma about it.

If he goes it will be a damn shame and I for one would still appreciate what James has given us. As ppl have already said it’s a short career and we’d all do the same. James, just make the right decision for you and your family.

That's really useful to know. I had no idea, but as a former resident, I follow the fortunes of Adelaide United.

I moved there aged 14. My best mates were from Norton, Lymm and Rotherham. 75% of the kids in my school were from the UK.

My mate Dave has a season ticket for Melbourne Vics. We watch the A League on telly a fair bit and saw Vics v Perth Glory when we were over there a few years ago.

Why has the club allowed the situation to develop whereby Gibbo is available on a free?

I find it remarkable that Gibbo’s contract hasn’t been sorted out long before this. Will be a big loss if he goes. 

To be fair to the club Gibbo has had to prove his fitness after the previous season.

Once we got to Jan its pointless having those discussions. I'm sure Gibbo wanted to play L1 so it would have been a case of wait and see what division we were in and subsequent wage structure for the league.

Thankfully the club and player inserted an extension clause in Smithy's contract if we got promoted. I suspect that was the same for Wozza as well.

I’m sure in the past we’d usually been in talks around jan time with players out of contract that we want to keep. However I wonder if the unprecedented situation with the manager is what delayed things with all 3 of them? That situation just can’t have been foreseen at all.
 

But also as MBE stated above Gibbo said in quite a few interviews about his contract that he needed to prove himself when he was injured. Also Proctor got injured too didn’t he after Christmas, so again maybe another factor in the delay for his offer as well?

I guess the issue why Gibbo is now a free agent is last year we couldn’t really offer a new deal as would have been concern over him having been out a year and DC didn’t get to see him to make a judgement.

This season of course in January maybe Gibbons didn’t want to discuss until the end of the season?

Hopefully we keep him though, if he can get over his injuries he is a level above and we saw that in the play offs. Really like him at RCB as well, although with Cass you can play him RWB in place of Woz and even LWB where he excelled earlier in the season so he’s versatile.

Odd we haven’t heard anything especially as some say Vale tweeted weeks ago that Mal had signed before deleting?
